We think this is our old Unimog still going strong with another contractor.
We sold it 5 years ago, to be replaced by a tractor for the mulcher, as we found the Unimog to be unsuitable
You might have seen us last week clearing back overhanging trees in Bradford on Avon. We were along the riverside between the station car park and swimming pool.

This is now complete. Following a successful planning application approval, the brief was to build a 40 x 20m sand arena. The topsoil was removed and the site levelled with drainage and soakaway. Then a stone sub-base with a membrane underneath was laid, then a second membrane. Finally, the correct sand type was added along with post and rail fence and gates installed.
Here’s a picture of young Lukas dismantling the first of many 60-foot sycamore trees for St Mary’s Hospital in Bristol.
The project necessitated the trees being dismantled for the regeneration of the site into student accommodation.

Just to give you the heads up that we will have a Tree Spade for hire next year. You can hire it directly with or without a suitable tractor and operator to move those trees!
But first it requires a spell in our workshop before being ready for use, so if of interest, do give us a call. It fits a tractor’s 3-point linkage.
Our original Facebook post at the beginning of November showed that we were making a number of these. We mentioned the fact that they would be painted cream in and concreted to the ground. But we didn’t get many replies as to what they would be used for, so we thought you’d like to know the answer!
They are in fact timber firing points we installed at Warminster Ranges, all made in-house. And they had to be painted country cream as they didn’t want bright white.
Our project here was to supply and erect 300m of 2m high palisade fencing for Cross Engineering in Devizes.
Palisade fence panels are the most popular choice for locations today requiring a high level of security and vandal resistance.
Steel palisade fencing is usually the first choice for schools, utility installations and industrial sites. This is because of its high damage resistance and the fact that it is so difficult to climb.

Another one for our Everything Else section of the website!
A recent pond refurbishment with 15 years of silt and leaf mould removed. We retained some water and all the fish and then laid a new liner. The pond was then refilled to which we added the retained water to get the microbes started.

And now adding a new photograph in June 2019 of what it looks like 6 months later. Really does illustrate the “before and after”…
