Here Justin is reducing the limbs of a beech tree in Marlborough
Our client had just purchased the house in Marlborough and our brief was to make the garden dog-proof and a little more private with a small length of close board fencing (8m). In addition, we installed new hardwood iroko timber gates and oak posts; curved heel is the higher side of the gate to give a diagonal brace – just different! And we created an area to make a secluded bin store. Iroko is a highly durable timber with a medium oily texture. It is frequently referred to as African Teak due to its durability and appearance.
A little job for the Barbury Horse Trials, Marlborough, to put in a gate but to make it look as though it’s always been there!

We’ve been stump grinding all week!
Pictures tell a thousand words – showing Matt undertaking a sectional dismantle in Marlborough of a large pine over a stable block in January. The tree had become unstable and at some point would need to be removed due to its position overhanging stables and within a garden. Not one to shelter under on a windy day! Now all recycled for biomass and drying for future use.
This sequence of images shows a sectional dismantle of a Pine Tree at Manton Grange, Marlborough in January 2017.
Removal of 30 cherry trees, Marlborough
Rich, Geoff and Simon spent a week at Temple Estate in Marlborough at the end of October. They undertook a variety of jobs which included reducing the number of trees on the driveway. The original planting had alternate lime and cherry trees, but now there was no longer space for both. So the decision was taken to remove the 30 cherry trees and their stumps so that the lime trees could thrive better.
More tree and general clearance work was also undertaken to make way for a house extension… See the avenue of limes below.
