Chain link fencing using our Protech tracked post driver in Gillingham

This is the start of 450m of 6ft chain link fencing with 3 strands of barbed wire on top.  We were asked to do this for a utility company expanding their site, with the addition of extra land at Gillingham and follows on from the site clearance we carried out last summer.

The “bomb” creates a hole in the ground, rather than us having to dig or increase an existing hole, thus saving time and mess.  Our tracked Protech post driver proves its worth again.

Tree Spade for hire

Not just cutting and pruning trees we can now move them!

Tree spades can facilitate the transplanting of trees very cost-effectively. We are now able to move medium sized trees up to 30 cm girth (measured at 20 cm up the trunk) for parks, private estates and landowners, golf and sports clubs using our Vermeer tractor-mounted Tree Spade.

The Tree Spade will create a root ball approx. 1 m x 1m at its largest points. You can then move your trees with ease and little disturbance; new areas of woodland or individual trees can be transplanted by one man and we have used the Tree Spade to thin woodlands and move the trees to other positions rather than felling.

Here’s our PDF giving you full information:  Tree Spade for hire Feb 2019

If of interest to hire, please go to our website and fill in the contact form and we will get in touch.

Footpath gates erected at Tidworth

Footpath gates erected at Tidworth as part of a larger fencing project to allow grazing and public access.

Our brief was to erect 500m of new barbed wire fence to allow grazing of cattle on chalk grassland to the rear of houses in Tidworth.  We then needed to erect new footpath gates to allow access for walkers while remaining cattle proof at the same time.   Jan 2019

Equestrian Arena build in Lavington 

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.

 

 

Tree Spade for hire in 2019

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.
