Overview

Why We Are Consulting

Lazy Meadow is an excellent example of species-rich floodplain grassland. It is a triangular shaped ridge-and-furrow field managed as a hay meadow, situated on the south-west outskirts of Evesham. It lies 40m above sea-level on Jurassic Lower Lias semi-permeable clays, which are slightly base-rich in nature. The site is bounded by mature hedgerows and a wooded section of the Merry Brook, which forms the western boundary.
