Have You Heard of Tree Surgery?

Have You Heard of Tree Surgery?


No – it’s nothing medical. Tree surgeons (also known as arborists) cover a variety of services related to a tree’s health. It is an arborist’s job to trim any dead or overgrown wood, to ensure a tree remains healthy. Trees naturally grow too large, or in inconvenient places, and require a specialist to sort them out.

If you have a large tree on your land, you may be wondering what you can do with it. Well, a tree surgeon is probably ideal for you. They can advise you on your next decision, whether it be a light trim or complete remove of the tree. Whatever the outcome, arborists will understand your circumstances and assist you where possible.

Tree surgery is no easy feat – It requires climbing great heights and using high-tech tools to “cure” trees. They are recruited either through an agriculture qualification or by spending years as an apprentice.

Getting Ready for the Winter

Getting Ready for the Winter


Winter is coming…

So you should be looking at how to keep your land safe this winter. Ice is the cause of numerous accidents all over the UK, which makes it a giant health and safety risk. The most popular way to combat the harsh weather is to look into Gritting & Salt to clear snow and ice on your property. What grit does is lower the freezing temperature of snow, making it melt instead of freeze. It is important to do this at the correct time, however, because if the ice has already formed, the grit & salt have to work even harder to melt it. So, before winter hits the UK, it is a good idea to have a gritting company ready to contact for your gritting service.

By investing in gritting, everyone involved in your business/land is getting protected by the harsh elements, and would surely thank you. At Reiss’ Club Calves, we recommend a company such as Ground Control UK, who are specialists in this field. Visit their website to see more about the process of gritting and salting, and even have a chat with them on 0800 334 5606 and prepare for this winter.

The Difference Between Hard & Soft Landscaping

The Difference Between Hard & Soft Landscaping


You should know by now that landscaping is important (If you haven’t, read our previous post on this). However, you may be wondering where to start, or what type of landscaping services you need. Yes, landscaping actually comes with two categories: Hard and Soft landscaping. It is important to research how both can support you in improving your business/property.

Hard Landscaping
Hard Landscaping, or Hardscaping, is pretty self-explanatory. It involves looking at the hard areas of your landscape, such as rock or stone. Due to the nature of hard landscaping, it is important to seek a professional business as you will most likely be working with pipes and cables that lay underground, and breaking one of these would be very problematic.

If hard landscaping interests you, take a look at a professional hard landscaping company, such as idverde, who has been specialising in the field for numerous years. When it comes to delicate work like this, it is always best to consult a well-known company.

Soft Landscaping
As you may have guessed, if hard landscaping is for the rocks/man-made structures on your land, then soft landscaping refers to the living area of your land, such as plants or grass.

Hiring a soft landscaping company can really bring your land to life, and is a worthwhile investment if you are looking to brighten your land up with more greenery. We recommend looking at ESL Landscape Contractors, a company specialising in providing soft landscaping. View their website to take a look at exactly what they can offer you.

Landscaping is often overlooked when it comes to businesses and property owners, however, it is vital to get it right. By pursuing landscape and ground maintenance, you are actively preserving nature and adding extra greenery to your land. The aesthetics of your property can be greatly increased by having a good landscape on display.

Not only does a good landscape look good, it also feels good. Having organised land creates an ambience which makes visitors more comfortable, and makes their experience on your land more enjoyable, as humans are naturally drawn towards greenery.

Another point to consider is the price of your property. There is a significant correlation between a well-maintained landscape and property value. This makes the small cost of hiring a landscape company profitable in the long run as your value starts to rise.

With all things considered, it is important, as a land/business owner, to seek the aid of a landscaping company to bring your property to life. Take a look at hiring a commercial landscape design company for commercial properties, or another landscape development company for any non-commercial properties, and reap the huge benefits.
