CCNW was commissioned by Chester Zoo’s conservation & science team to carry out the cutting of several grass meadow areas located within the Chester Zoo nature recovery corridor adjacent to the main zoo area.
The cutting aimed to enhance the existing seven meadow areas by cutting and removing all cut arising which would include dominant species within the meadow areas. Some of these areas had not been grassed or cut for years. Removing the arising would decrease the nutrient level within the soil, allowing more diverse wildflowers to thrive, allowing better diversity.
