Deadwood material is supplied in a 85 litre bag and is used to create a habitat within the protected core area of the NatureArk that is in contact with the ground. This can provide nutrients and a cool, damp shelter attractive to amphibians, invertebrates, arthropods, and reptiles, as well as promoting fungi growth.
As seen in our installation demonstration video, the NatureArk contains a number of habitats that enable multiple species to coexist and interact as they would in a natural ecosystem.
This includes a removeable integrated wet and dry habitat, together with a water reservoir, as well as central and side planting areas. It has full ground contact giving connectivity from the integrated deadwood habitat and planting areas to the surrounding ecosystem.
Its unique design allows the roots of all plants to access water in the reservoirs, but also find their way down the sides and into the ground below.
