I have been working a lot on the chestnut area of the property. The chestnuts have had a good prune so they aren't touching the grass anymore. They hadn't been pruned at all and where they met the grass was full of blackberry and rotting leaves. I will wait until I can clear up the mess to show you what a change it makes but here is a before picture with the latest toy - a massive trampoline.
It seems to be coming into chestnut season too. They are beautiful and red brown.
