Be aware that verges have to be cut once a year to keep the drains clear. Ours were done two weeks ago, such a shame.
I have no objection to their being done for genuine road safety reasons, but where it is not necessary is a disaster for birds and insects and plants. To see a verge stuffed with orchids close shorn is so sad.
I am informed that they will do them later and only once next year, to save money. Here's hoping.
