The original brief was to create a district park from abandoned and abused landscape in what had been described as ‘the worst estate in Britain’. Now a Green Flag Site, Manor Fields Park has become PM’s longest test site for seed sown landscapes.

Amongst many differing styles of naturalistic planting the seed sown perennial meadows stretching across the 4 hectares of gateway and play entrance zone of Stonehirst exemplify how stunning, high impact meadows can completely replace much higher maintained herbaceous or formal bedding.

Now in its 12th season the scheme has got better year on year providing flowering from early spring through to very late autumn. The stunning but robust  landscape is picked out by differential mowing and managed by one spring targeted herbicide spray and one autumn cut and collect a year.
