Witchill School Project

A school grounds project began at Witchill School, Kilmarnock in 2007.

The main elements to the project were to create a large living willow tunnel dome,
together with a living willow tunnel.

The original installation was replaced with a more robust, creative structure as the
competition from grass proved too much for the original dome and
tunnels. The new structure has a wider trench dug and was finished off with a bark
chippings weed suppressant.
