Cutting Down The Ornamental Grasses
Twelve months ago the team planted grasses in two newly transformed borders up at the college's Canal Building site, see blog entry '113 Grasses & A New Stone Edge' dated 22nd March 2012. Those grasses are now ready for their first cut down, having given a lovely display during the late summer/autumn period.
Ali and Sophie were given the task to cut them down, and as planned when they were planted, a hedge cutter was used rather than secateurs and shears. The debris was cleared to the compost heaps and a new layer of wood chippings, from the chipper pile, placed on the borders.
