Willow domes and willow tunnels
Living willow domes and tunnels are beautiful structures which both blend in and enhance any outside space. They can be used as ‘outdoor classrooms’, and I believe help children connect with nature and use their natural environment for imaginative play. One day they are a fairy grotto, the next a giants cave….
The success of your newly planted living willow structure depends on good willow maintenance.
Once your living willow structure has been planted leave to establish and take root. Keeping the children away from the structure at this point is a good idea.
If there is no rain within the first few weeks of having your willow structure planted then it will need a good soaking.
Keep your grounds maintenance contractors well away from your structure with their powerful strimmers. its often the case that they will ring bark the willow structure, this will end up killing it.
Water water water in hot or dry weather. A good soak once a week is much better than frequent small amounts.
