I hope you have all had a great weekend, following last week’s update I have some dates for the landscape & fencing maintenance visit.
Wharton Landscapes will be grass cutting, stone picking and over seeding any bare patches on the playing fields swale, bund and basin as necessary Thursday & Friday of this week. The landscaper will also inspect the Dean Garth Basin undertaking a cut and stone pick.
Usually wild flower areas in their first season require a spring cut to remove any overpowering weeds to allow the new seed mix to take. However the damp ground conditions of a couple of weeks ago followed by a warm spell has resulted in the wild flower mix establishing strongly, it has not been overpowered by weeds. Therefore, it would be more beneficial to let the wildflower self-seed over the remainder of the season undertaking the first cut in the autumn. I hope the flowers will attract the wild life in and make for an interesting and colourful walking area at the northern edge of the playing fields.
The contractor will return to site w/c 27th May to complete the outstanding fencing works
As I mentioned previously we continue to work with all parties with respect to the implementation of the Dean Garth solution, I will be back in touch when the construction start date is agreed
