BSc Hons Countryside Management and OCN level 2 in Coppice Management. Gareth can help you plan and then undertake the practical work required to fell, coppice, fence and extract the timber from your land. His preference is for low impact and environmentally sensitive approaches, sometimes these require more time and preparation, however, the land recovers more rapidly and overall environmental impacts are reduced.

Biochar

Biochar

Biochar has many horticultural benefits. It can increase crop yields, sometimes substantially if the soil is in poor condition. It retains moisture, helping plants through periods of drought more easily. Most importantly, it replenishes exhausted or marginal soils with organic carbon and fosters the growth of soil microbes essential for nutrient absorption, particularly mycorrhizal fungi.
