|German term or phrase: 1) Magerwiese, 2) Fettwiese, 3) Verbuschung|
|Magerwiese: agricultural meadow which is not manured|
Fettwiese: agr. meadow which is manured
Verbuschung: slowly setting- in growth of bushes after on an agric. area that has been abandoned
fertilized / non-fertilized meadow, overgrown [with bushes]
Fertilized meadow / non-fertilized meadow is probably the more general and more modern US usage than manured meadow (although there are plenty of references for that, too; none, however, for non-manured...)
For Verbuschung, land that has not been tended is generally referred to as being overgrown, so you could say "overgrown field", "overgrown meadow", etc., or "a meadow that is overgrown with bushes" or something along those lines. While the American Heritage dictionary defines "bushy" as "overgrown with bushes", the word bushy by itself would certainly not be the correct translation for your purposes.
