This can be an alternative to fencing giving the boundary a lush green foliage with addition privacy 

Hedge Trimming

Normally a hazardless undertaking depending on the height, of course. Hedge trimming can be time consuming. Most hedges need trimming 2 times a year and we do recommend they're kept to a manageable height.

Hedge Removal

Removal may be an option if some of the hedge is damaged or dying. This can also be considered if you are looking to erect a fence or wall to reduce the maintenance involved with maintaining a hedge.

Weeding

 
   

Ground Clearance

This can be a multitude of things such as overgrown grass, weeds, litter, stone, trees and shrubs. This can sometimes be a big undertaking without the correct equipment.

Weeding Borders

A task that can be easy or a down right pain as it all depends on the quality of the soil. By upgrading the soil and loosing it, weeding becomes a lot easier.

Weed Control Spraying

Spraying is a great alternative for large areas such as pathways, driveways, patios and car parks as it prolongs the period of weed return. Unfortunately, they will grow back, so routine spraying is essential to keep weeds under control.

Ground Cover Fabric and Aggregates

An ideal solution for borders in gardens, reducing the weeds by approx 80%. Unfortunately, weeds can grow almost anywhere, being transported by dust, walking, adjacent weed contaminated areas and birds.

Mulch and Bark Ground Cover

Ideal for covering large areas, giving the ground a fresh rich brown colour and also reducing weeds by approx 60%.
