Wildflower Meadows

Wildflower meadows have decreased in number and biodiversity dramatically in the last 50 years as a result of modern farming techniques. The use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers dramatically reduces the number of supported species of plants and invertebrates. This in turn reduces the number of mammals and birds that can call this space home. Furthermore, hay provides a high quality winter feed for grazing animals.

Whether you have bare-ground or existing grassland, an area of wildflower meadow can be created with small changes in management.

We can give you advice on how to start and how to maintain an area of wildflowers to their best advantage. Our collaborative team of specialists can carry out works on any scale. Previous clients have included local schools and village greens.
