Tree Guard

Tree Guards are purposely designed to stop cattle browsing on young trees. Made from strong pickets which are nailed to posts knocked into the ground. Near the base, gaps are filled to stop entrance of rabbits, and to act as wind break. A strand of barbed wire will also further deter cattle rubbing, this is not supplied. 2’6"/0.75m at bottom and 3’6"/1.05m at the top which is 5’/1.5m above ground. Other sizes to order.

Foot Bridge

Rail and sleeper methods are used to build a Foot Bridge. Chosen whilst the tree stands, the wood will have natural arch across the span. It is the diagonally tied and the sleeper style walk way placed. Thick planks are riven and then axed to shape. This gives a strong non slip foot way, and very long durability. They are strong enough to take a horse, and look it. I would like the opportunity to build one with a Japanese tea ceremony house in the centre.

Rose Arbour

Dimensions to allow a generous opening across a path to avoid being snagged by roses. Nailed to four posts, the Rose Arbour is firmly anchored woodwork is kept off the ground.

Border Edges

Made from half round split logs wired together with galvanised wire. Edging for plant beds or lawns, these can be stored rolled up, and are unaffected by years in the ground. These make ideal edgings for organic beds segregating the bed from the paths , the hardwood will not leach poisonous heavy metal toxins into the soil like the tanalised softwood ones. They also make good protections for specimen trees or fruit trees in lawns enabling mulch retention and guarding against strimmer damage.

Lintels

Squared with an adze for an antique appearance approximately 8" 6" / 20 15cm, length is to order. For more details and specifications please contact us. Lintels can be made in oak or chestnut and are as strong as concrete. They are the traditional material of older cottages and buildings and will perform successfully   for over a century.

 

Garden Steps

For rough ground or terraces. These steps have a riser of about 20cms/8", and are used where it is necessary to help walkers up a steep slope. They are made by nailing to half round riven timbers horizontally to two stakes knocked into the ground. This process is often used by local authorities on such walks as the Cornish coastal footpath. After the wood is fixed into the ground the soil or a hardcore may be raked behind to fill up. This helps stabilize the slope from further erosion from wear, and acts as a brake on wash away erosion from slower movement of water as it is caught by the terraces. The process is very economic both for large and small scale projects, as it requires relatively little labour to fix a path  compared to other methods. Using hardwood is the preferred option in environmentally sensitive areas.
