Ashlawn Grasslands Maintenance 2022

Grass cutting and raking off of the arisings has been on the go for the last two months. We have maintained a very good pace this season, with usually three brush cutters in action, with an energetic crew completing all the clearance. We expect to be finished by the end of November. The unimproved grasslands of the cutting are its core asset and deserve the full attention of the volunteer group.

The pictures give a small taste of where we have been this year. For the previous two seasons, we have been cutting the path side verges in addition to the main grassland sections. We are now seeing an increasing diversity of wildflower growth in these verges as a result.
