Grass Buffers and Field Margins

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.
