Meadow’s first haircut

Following a period of frost the temperatures have started to rise. The meadow populated well last year but in an effort to expand the grasses coverage we decided to collect seed from the grasses we wanted more of, and remove anything that didn’t take so well.

We filled a 5 gallon bucket with Deergrass, Purple Threeawn and Purple Fountain Grass.

We then cut all the dead grass, removed anything that didn’t take so well and aerated the soil for the new seed.

This was followed by a full evening of rain so hopefully the new seed has gotten off to a good start.
