Hay piles at Marton August 2020

21 Aug 2020, 8 p.m.

Scything allows our resident wildlife (butterflies, bees, newts, snails, frogs, toads, voles, crickets, etc) to hop, crawl, fly or hide away!
After the successful results last year, we have decided to leave the hay piles in place until spring.
They provide valuable habitats over the winter, and also keep the grass down, which will promote wildflower growth next year.
