Grassland Cutting Season

We are now fully into the season for maintaining the grasslands within the cutting. This involves cutting the growth down low with a brushcuuter, following by raking off the cut material. This keeps the nutrient levels as low as possible, providing the most suitable conditions for the wildflower growth next season.

The picture below gives an idea of what it entails. The far right-hand side has been both cut and raked. The greater portion to the left has been partially cut, with long lines of cut material to be raked off.
