Weeds are unsightly, spreading and outcompeting grassland causing a reduction in quality. They are poisonous to animals particularly horses. Weeds need to be controlled and this involves using spray chemicals. In recent times chemicals and their methods of application have become more environmentally friendly allowing the safe control of weeds in a timely manner. We can also offer control solutions for invasive weeds such as giant hogweed, Japanese knotweed and Himalayan balsam.
We offer tractor mounted and pedestrian rotovator services which are ideal for the preparation of seedbeds or general ground levelling jobs from fields to gardens.

Aeration can be carried out using a variety of methods. Our “verti-drain” machine uses tines to penetrate the soil which are either solid or hollow, depending on the soil conditions, time of year and desired effect. A massively influential machine in the pitch care industry, the “verti-drain” is designed to de-compact soil on sports pitches once or twice per year only. Equally spaced holes of 25mm diameter and up to 300mm deep provide a surface pan shatter, allowing water and air to disperse to the grass roots a lot easier.
