FOREST LAYERS: Mimicking Nature
Mimicking nature will achieve the best results when designing landscapes. So we look to the way forests naturally grow when planting an understory hedgerow. This approach creates density for privacy through habitat diversity without looking like a wall between neighbors and/or functional spaces.
- Woody Understory
- Herbaceous Understory
- Groundcover Layer
Suggestions for plantings under Redwoods:
Italian Buckthorn (Rhamnus alaternus) non-native
Comfrey (Symphytum x uplandicum) non-native
