Why is the grass being cut so close to the edge of the marshes that trees and other plants are in danger of being damaged or their roots cut? It's not an area where people can walk as it's right under the trees so why not leave it wild so that the flowers etc can grow for the wildlife? We need to be encouraging this. One of the photos shows where the verge has been left which looks much better!

    This is the photo showing how much better it looks and how much better it is for nature when the grass isn't cut back right up against the trees
