Extensive experience in wild flower and grassland management and creation

Twig can advise you on the best way forward with your land. Our wild flower and grassland management typically consists of the below activities:

  • Soil nutrient analysis and treatment
  • Weed control
  • Identification and sourcing of local grass and wild flower species
  • Periodic maintenance to enhance species diversification
  • Nutrient reduction through grass removal

So why wild flower and grassland management?

Grasslands, large or small, can be very important for wildlife, providing a haven for a wide range of wild flowers, birds, animals and invertebrates. With sensitive management, this wildlife can be encouraged and conserved. Without management, grasslands become invaded by vigorous ‘weeds’, rank grasses and scrub that out compete wild flowers. Eventually scrub may completely take over, resulting in the loss of a valuable refuge for wild flowers and the wildlife they support.

The exact management requirements of an area of grassland not only vary with the site location but also with the species present. So, before any work is started, it is important to survey the grassland to find out what wildflowers are already there. Meadows containing rare plants will need particularly careful management and Twig is always happy to offer advice.
