Fallen Tree Clearing

Another storm and more tree clearing work to keep us busy, this time we removed a fallen Alder tree from the River Pang in Tidmarsh. The tree had fallen across the river and landed on a farm fence on the other bank, damaging the fence and causing a restriction to the river.

We were called in to remove the tree in question and whilst we were there we also removed a few other trees that were causing problems for our valued client.

Our 3t mini excavator came in very handy to make the job easy and quicker than traditional manual methods.

Another job well done by the team and another very happy client. For any of your tree cutting requirements please do give us a call. You can also see our latest news on our Facebook Page

Riding Arena Repair

We are often asked “ What can we do to fix our arena surface” and the answer is generally “Plenty!)

Riding arenas are generally used heavily and maintained to the minimum from our own experience which means that over time they require repairs and more involved maintenance. This can be from simple surface remixing to drainage repairs or even full surface replacement.

arena surface mixing

Luckily we have many many years experience in constructing and repairing riding arenas so are more than capable to tackle any project type.

What is your arena looking like? Does it need any repairs or maintenance?

Bramble Clearance In Overgrown Vineyard

One of our recent projects came after a call from a long standing client who required some bramble and vegetation clearance in a vineyard that we helped establish over 7 years ago. Parts of the vineyard had been overcome by brambles, gorse and small saplings which we were tasked with clearing the vegetation so the vines could be trimmed back into shape.

We used both our mini excavator and flail as well as the remote controlled mower to cut the brambles and saplings down to ground level and allowing access between the rows.

Some of the overgrowth was higher than the mini digger but the flail attachment made light work of cutting it down to size and mulching the vegetation material to the ground meaning now arising s were taken away.

Using our vegetation control machinery and our expertise we soon had the vine rows back under control ready for the specialist teams to prune and attach the vines ready for next years crop!

If you require any bramble or vegetation clearance then be sure to give us a call!

Paddock gateway repair

So it’s winter again and that means mud, lots and lots of mud! Read below about one of our recent paddock gateway repair jobs.

This was the case for one of our clients whose situation had gotten so bad they were unable to turn the horses out or even get muck to the heap, no problem though as our mini excavator and operator soon had the mud dig away, a hard base put down and smooth blinding material over the top making a very much needed improvement and immediately made the paddock usable again.

If you also have mud problems and need a paddock gateway repair then please do give us a call!

We have more images of our projects on our Instagram page. You can also see our other recent news here.

Shrub bed removal

As part of our vegetation management service we were tasked to some shrub bed removal which involved fully removing the old shrubs and their roots from a series of shrub beds around commercial office units in Oxford ready for the redesign and new planting, our 3t mini excavator was the perfect machine for this job along with a skip loading dumper to transfer the waste direct to a waiting skip for disposal.

We spent a few weekends over the end of 2019/ beginning of 2020 to complete the shrub bed removal work and used weekends to enable us free access to the areas whilst the cars from the office staff were not there.

Another great effort from the whole team at SAS!

We have many many years experience in these types of project from small gardens to large whole site clearance projects. You can be assured that our staff have the equipment, training and personal outlook required to achieve the best work possible.

Riding track maintenance

As with most things in life, your all weather riding track also requires regular maintenance and repair, with which we can help!

With this track it was a simple case of pulling the sides back into shape after the wood chip had been thrown aside by general use, then finish off with a Harrow to make it as good as new again.

The whole project was completed in 1 day making it very cost effective.

If you too need your riding track or ménage maintained then please give us a call or send us a message.

As well as all weather surface maintenance and repair we offer paddock topping, harrowing and rolling as part of our equestrian services. We can also undertake paddock repair and full reseed work and hard standing maintenance.

Local Pub Car Park Extension

A nice local project for one of the local pub/hotel companies to provide an extension to their car park for staff parking and install some concrete areas for placing wheelie bins on.

Our 3t mini digger was the perfect machine for this job and we had the whole project completed in just 2 days.

We can tackle any type of car park extension project as part of our excavation services, we can source local materials and where possible we always try to use recycled material, this can save costs as well as help the environment.

You can always keep up to date with what we’ve been up to by keeping an eye on our social media channels Facebook Instagram or Pinterest

Guildford Path Clearance

We were asked by a tree surgery company to help with some vegetation clearance work to enable a new wider and much improved cycle path and pedestrian footpath upgrade for Guildford council.
We used one of our 5t mini excavators fitted with a flail attachment to cut back all of the overgrowth and trees all down to ground level before the tree care guys used chainsaws to tidy up any flailed edges.

Below are some images of the project;

Work was completed in a very cost effective manner and in a short timescale, another job well done by our staff.

We are able to assist with all types of vegetation clearance and management work through Berkshire and the surrounding counties. We have excavators with tree shears and flails as well as tractors with mowers and hedgecutters. All of our teams have extensive knowledge and skills to carry out their jobs to a very high standard.

We also have a remote controlled bank mower which can have either a grass flail or forestry mulcher head attached for harder to reach areas.

Verge mowing in full swing

Well what a start to June with the wet weather and the bit of heat has led to a grass and overgrowth explosion, we have been busy cutting grass and trimming verges around the county to increase vision and keep it all tidy!

Here is a quick video of one of our tractors out cutting a roadside verge.
