You may want some advice or assistance on managing your grassland. An ecological survey may be useful which could include:
• A walkover of your grasslands with an experienced ecologist to assess the habitat
• Key species identification
• Preparation together of a simple map-based management plan that will meet your needs
• List of basic do’s and don’ts!
If you are interested there are a number of ecologists who all work locally who will offer this service. The cost will need to be discussed and agreed at the time as of course it will be dependent on the amount of land, where you are, the sort of service you are looking for.
