Description

Issue

At the Eco-Logis of Ensarnaut, Marianne and Christian are willing to dress their west frontage of the cottage that is exposed to the rain, to the wind and to the sun, in a natural way.

Solution

They delimited the zone to avoid people walking on it and they let what wanted, but most of it, what could grow up on that area. And blackberries settled. Blackerries ? Yes, blackerries create a perfect and natural hedge and offer plenty of advantages

  • They offer intimacy to the rooms,
  • They protect the frontage from the violent winds,
  • They offer beautiful flowers and blackberry fruits
  • They create a micro-climate enabling ivy to colonize the wall,
  • They offer room and board (does it remind you of something?) to many creatures.
