Grass Buffers and Field Margins (SW Codes)

The mixtures below comply with 2021 schemes for SW1 SW2 SW3 SW4 SW7 SW8. The establishment of permanent grass buffer strips will produce new habitats, protect existing landscape features and improve water quality. If used next to watercourses, buffers and margins also prevent pollutants and sediments from being transported in surface water run-off. The strips will also provide safe green corridors to link habitats.
