Planning for future events - Sculptress JOEL has used one of her Bronze of a Little Owl and eight invertebrates to show the difference it makes in having a Mossy covering to such a garden feature.

The local moss has been selected and mossy stones and pebbles added to show the look improve in interest and green benefit.
Bronze Little Owl with moss added by Sculptress JOEL
This Bronze statue was made for the Peter Smith Trust for Nature Conservation and promotes the message of the importance of conserving habitats and insect populations.
Round behind the back of the Little Owl there are nine invertebrates in among the Bronze Ivy.
Moss and lichens provide water retentive micro-environments for many invertebrate species and every garden, yard, urban space ... designs that includes them benefits us all.
"This is a trial to see how much the mosses will enhance the statue and the dull corner" says Joel,"We are preparing some stone for Mossy bases for Bronzes and other sculptures ready for clients and for exhibitions next year"
