Last week I had a great day meadow cutting the amenity field at Blackwater Reach, a field that BVCP and Sandhurst Town Council (STC) would like to cut and collect each year. Due to BVCP hiring the nice blue tractor for a few weeks, we have now managed the first cut in three years of this meadow.
This form of management will help to increase the bio-diversity and reduce the nutrients on site, encouraging a wild flower meadow. STC are now looking to add a green hay mix to the site next year to increase the sites species richness.
