Things We Do With a Scythe 2: Mowing Trackways

Here is Phil mowing a grass track that runs between the fenced boundary of the top hay field and a developing forest garden area.

He is using a 75cm Profisense blade and mowed the approximately 100m track in little over an hour. This track is mowed two to three times a year. The clippings produced are used as mulch in the garden. In winter, the track is mowed in small sections over a period of several weeks, with the clippings being fed as a “green bite” to housed livestock.
