What? Tasks :  In September, hopefully the weather is kind allowing the meadow to brush-cut. However, all cuttings need to be removed to reduce nutrients in this area.

In spring / early summer removal of Alexander is always a priority.

Ivy removal from the trees is another on-going task as is our litter collection.
