Flailing

£50-£60 excl. VAT

During the Flailing process, we use our 2.8-metre front-mounted Spearhead Flail to turn the nettles, weeds and scrubs into mulch for your land. Mulch is chopped up pieces of organic material and by creating this, it encourages new grass to grow and prevent a build-up of brambles, doc leaves and nettle etc.

Topping

We also have a 1m wide Steiger articulated, four-wheel drive, front-mounted mower. This is great for smaller paddocks and larger gardens. It makes a very tidy job and mulches the cut straight back into the grass sward.

Hedge & Tree Management

Price dependent on job 

We have a number of tools from hand saws and secateurs, to large flail hedge cutters that we use to keep your hedgerow tidy, and help with hedge gapping and planting! This is an important service as, if a hedge is left unmanaged, it can split and can topple over, or encourage the plants to die back and with today’s climatic issues, planting and improving your hedgerows and tree stands can only be of benefit. 

We are happy to offer advice and can put you in touch with your local Natural England consultant who could answer questions and hopefully help you find a tailored solution.
