We offer a range of paddock maintenance services including topping, spraying and grass seeding through to complete paddock instatement or repair.
Our variety of farming machinery enables us to cater for the growing work load in equestrian paddocks and amenity areas. Rapid Reseeding is a popular service used for reseeding and repairing pasture, a Väderstad Turf Drill and MF compact tractor on turf tyres is used for this operation and enables minimum disruption to your field. No ploughing or cultivating is required, and grazing can be resumed after only a short period.
minimal impact on field surface
minimal disruption to grazing patterns
consistent turnout times
huge cost and time savings
We are able to plant grass seed into existing turf to compliment unproductive, thin or failing grass leys. This may be patching up small areas or reseeding whole fields. The process is a one-pass, one-operation system meaning only one machine goes into the field, passing only once over the ground to complete the job. This makes it fast and cost effective as no further cultivations are required.
It is a convenient method of improving your pasture, no ploughing or further operations needed, causing minimal disturbance for you and your horse. Although preferable to not graze for a short period it is possible to resume turnout or grazing immediately after reseeding.
Rapid Reseeding is an all inclusive product, we will advise and supply all grass seed types to suit your needs and soil type. We can also supply soil testing as well as fertiliser to improve the pasture's performance. Other seeds are available on request including wild flowers and herb mixtures. Our range of agricultural machinery allows us to deal with any project, large or small.
To improve pastures, stimulate new grass growth and generally tidy field and paddock areas we operate a flail topper to cut and mulch rough areas with a compact tractor on grass tyres.
In extreme situations it may be necessary to spray and kill weeds out of paddock and other grass areas before overseeding. Routine spraying can help to improve paddock areas but we would always recommend overseeding. Where heavy grazing has taken place and grass has become particularly short the canopy is open and weeds are able to take a tighter hold. The most effective solution for this is to overseed to encourage growth, this will enable the grass to take a stronger hold over the weeds.
