The Solar Farm

Solar farms have become a part of a modern agricultural landscape. This particular solar farm was situated at the top of a hill adjacent to an active airfield. It required a 4 kilometre surround of native hedging with some mature tree standards planted in a more exposed locations to disguise the installation. A key aspect of the design was to keep berrying plants away from under the flight path to prevent flocking birds from gathering. Nicholsons successfully completed the works over two planting seasons.
