Cutting Down The Marginal Planting
Working together at the water's edge, Ali and Graham spent the day cutting down the marginal planting behind the weir. Having first removed the temporary, wire fencing to gain access to the planting, Graham, using the long reach hedge cutter, cut it down.
Ali, following behind Graham, raked the cut down marginals away from the edge placing it in to tonne bags for transporting to the skip.
Graham then made a second, lower cut taking the marginals to ground level. After a final rake through, a layer of wood chip mulch was applied to the area.
