Chainharrowing

 

Chain Harrowing - Generally carried out in the spring, with a view to remove dead grass level, out minor humps and bumps from winter stocking and encourage new grass growth.

 

We also have a 4ft trailed set for use behind quad bike for those hard to access paddocks where are mounted set are just to big.

.

Overseeding / Reseeding - As part of spring maintenance overseeding can play a big role in helping to keep the weeds in your sward down by spreading grass seed over any poached areas helping to strangle out weeds before they become established.

Rolling

Rolling - Again generally carried out in the spring after the field has been harrowed with a view to flattening out humps and bumps and encouraging the grass to split to promote a thicker growth and provide a flat surface for any other maintenance works.

 

We also have a 5ft roller to use behind our quad bike for those hard to access paddocks you cant get a tractor into.

Topping

Topping - Carried out throughout the year but generally during the growing season to control unwanted growth of nettles, thistles, buttercups, etc to prevent them seeding and spreading further.

Hedgecutting

Hedgecutting - Carried out generally in the winter months but can be done between August and February.  Hedges are trimmed and prunned to prevent the hedges from becoming overgrown and taking up more space.  Regular trimming also helps the hedge to grow into a nice thick hedge preventing stock from escaping and provides a varied habitat for lots of wildlife.

 

Muck Heap Removal

Muck Heap Removal - A service we offer all year round. Generally we carry out this service on a per load price subject to location. We will load your Horse manure onto our 8.5T trailer and take it away for you leaving you with a clean area ready for your next muck heap.

Muck Spreading

Muck Spreading- Generally carried out during the winter months. We can load and spread your rotted manure onto your paddock or fields to fertilize for future growth, this service would generally also require the paddock to be harrowed afterwards to help break up and spread the muck, aiding the washing in process.

Applying Fertilizer

Fertilizer Application - Another service popular with our Equine Customers is our ability to supply and apply fertilizer to help your paddocks grow.  Fertilizers can help to prevent weed growth by getting the grass growing faster helping to choke out the weeds and improving the soil quality which a lot of the unwanted items in your grass sward dont like thus giving you a more palletable paddock for your animals.
