Fertilising

There are many types of fertilisers out there and they all provide a different purpose. We generally use two types, Nitrogen only which is the most popular and cheapest option. Nitrogen is great for boosting grass growth after the cold winter months. Fertilising must be carried out in moderation so as not to increase the protein levels to much. Fertilising can help reduce the weed population as some weeds such as buttercups often take over the grass in poor soil conditions, you may notice this in flooded areas.

Harrowing / Aerating

This process is generally carried out from March and helps to pull out moss and dead thatch, it also helps to level lightly poached areas and promote natural growth as the weather warms up.

Weed Control

Weeds and moss in paddocks are competition for your grass. Whether your paddocks are for grazing or hay, grass growth can be compromised, therefore you would end up spending more on hay and feed.
Weeds such as ragwort are poisonous and must be controlled under the Weeds Act 1959.

When to Spray?

Broadleaf weeds are generally treated between April and September depending on the weather patterns and seasonal timings. Moss control is best treated between October and March when the weather is cooler but not frosty.  Soil Quality - We can also arrange soil PH and nutrient testing which is sent off for analysis and we can then apply the necessary elements to correct any problematic soil quality's.

Flailing

Flailing also helps to stop weeds from seeding when they are too mature to be sprayed, overgrown grass that is flailed also improves new grass regrowth. Flailing is generally carried out from summer onwards after birds and other habitats have finished nesting, it is often preferred over spraying for the control of weeds where people do not wish to use chemicals on their land or have organic contracts.

Paddock Renovation

We are pleased to now offer our new paddock renovation machine.  This machine offers aeration which helps to oxygenate and help nutrients get into the root structure and helps to assist with minimal surface drainage, the machine also harrows the thatch and moss which in turn rejuvenates and assists in new sward growth.

The Paddock Renovator is also is capable of overseeding which is important to help in overgrazed areas and paddocks that need to be refreshed with new grass.

 

 

Our Power Box Rake allows us to offer a range of paddock, landscaping and groundwork services including:
 

  • Cultivating, earth moving, grading and raking.
  • Repairing areas of severe poaching in paddocks,
  • Levelling areas of grazing land or grounds, 
  • Landscaping new and old gardens in preparation for seeding or turfing. The rake pulverises and removes unwanted stones and debris from the soil, leaving a clean raked finish. 

 

Topping Weeds and Overgrowth

Take control of overgrown grass and weeds. We can top/cut overgrowth of any length and thickness (up to 10ft tall!!). Topping overgrowth can keep your grazing healthy, maintain the essential nutrients in your grass and can avoid weeds getting out of control.
