We have the right equipment for the project, be it small machinery for working on sensitive sites or large excavators for site clearance works.

  • Invasive Weed Control - Stem injection and spraying using knapsack sprayers are effective techniques to control the spread of non-native weeds such as Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and Himalayan Balsam. We hold the required licenses to do so and can apply for Environment Agency permission on your behalf if required.

  • Access & Interpretation - We can deliver sympathetic footpath improvements as well as the installation of boardwalks, fences and stiles. Larger projects such as bird hides, outdoor classrooms and bridges can also be designed and built.
