Lantana, Tobacco and Regeneration
All sites with lantana and other woody weeds can be cleared using a mixture of chemical control and manual clearing. Where possible, burning piles will be made and burned at appropriate times.
If we can practically get to it, we can clear it. We have cleared slopes with inclines over 45 degrees!
We can also do all replanting, grass seeding, follow up weeding and maintenance.
High Volume Weed Spraying
We have a 1000 litre IBC tank and fire pump to enable spraying up to 150m from our 4wd.
Spraying options include: - Lantana and privet spraying - Parramatta grass and tussock - Broadleafs including thistles, ink weed, cobblers peg, sigisbekia, hemlock - Bracken Fern
Manual spraying with backpack sprayers and splatter guns is also available for smaller jobs and areas with limited access.
Tree Felling and chopping
Trees located in paddock or away from high risk points can be felled on a case-by-case basis. Rates are dependent on the size of the tree and whether it is to be subsequently chopped up and piled for burning.
We do most trees in paddock situations.
General Garden Maintenance
We offer general weeding, mulching, pruning and garden maintenance services. Unfortunately, we do not offer lawn maintenance at this time.
Feral Animal Monitoring and Control
We have a variety of feral animal monitoring options available including: - Site surveys for signs of feral animal presence - Infrared video camera night surveys conducted on foot - Placement of monitoring of trail cameras to assess native and feral numbers - Baiting and cage trapping advice -
