The pictures show us half-way through a large reduction on a 60m hedge which had grown to 65′ in Worton Village, Devizes. Following the unusually high winds in May, several branches had broken off and there was a further risk of more damage, so permission was sought from Wiltshire County Council as the hedge/trees were within a conservation area.
The work was then scheduled, needing our large cherry picker, and we recycled all the chip and timber locally.
We were awarded the contract to clear trees and undergrowth from in and around a lake in Worton, near Devizes. We also uncovered a spot of erosion which has now been reinstated so water goes over rather than around the weir. The work will require a program of tree removal and replacement planting, fencing, drainage works and removal of timber from the lake.
Initially, an American form of fencing, which is now proving very popular here in the UK, Keepsafe Equestrian Fencing is a specially designed wire fence for the equine fencing market.
With a durable and protective diamond weave featuring heavy, twisted horizontal cables, each cable consisting of two wires on 100mm (4″) spacing from the ground to the top. Vertical wires, securely wrapped around each horizontal cable, run diagonally to make a diamond pattern, forming the strongest fence construction available today.
The practical benefits are that not only does it keep as much out as it does in, it is also very springy so safe if horses bounce into it. We bought this fencing in for this job from the US.
