Page 22When to Cut

Observe, evaluate & manage your meadow, 'it's a living ecosystem'

Adapt a management strategy where you observe the meadow flora. 

Look and learn, it's great fun. 

Plan ahead so that maintenance occurs on time. 

Is it not always the way, that when you need to cut your meadow you will find that farmers and landscape contractors will be under pressure during poor weather conditions? They will need to be booked well in advance to cut a meadow. 

The maintenance work must be done and requires specific management to ensure that it is carried out correctly. 

Some contractors are not skilled with wild flora and need to be shown what to do.
