See https://plantlife.love-wildflowers.org.uk/ roadvergecampaign/ management-guidelines Explains how to manage roadside verges for wild flowers. Gavray Drive is bounded by a Local Wildlife Site 52W01 (Gavray Meadows) on the north and thick shrubs on the south side. No houses abutt onto its verges. WHY do you keep cutting the grass to 1mm? This practice destroys wildflowers and the insects which they harbour which feed birds.
