We provide a wide range of heavy duty and specialised site clearance equipment, as well as professionally accredited teams and experienced managers to ensure projects, whether large or small, are completed on time and on budget. We work in partnership with our clients to ensure projects are completed smoothly and professionally.
Are capabilities include mulchers that are able to turn hectares of scrubland into areas ready for construction projects in a matter of hours, 360 excavators with harvesting heads capable of felling whole trees, removing branches and cutting to specified lengths, in a matter of seconds and whole tree chippers that can turn a mature tree into woodchip (that can then be used as a renewable energy source) within a few minutes, as well as the capability to not just grind down stumps but remove them and chip them. In short, we have everything you need and nothing you don’t.
Homegrown specialise in the control and eradication of invasive weeds and plants including Giant Hogweed, Ragwort, Floating Pennywort, Himalayan Balsam, Japanese Knotweed, Skunk Cabbage and Rhododendron.
These weeds and plants are increasingly becoming a nuisance and many organisations do not fully understand the law surrounding their removal and disposal. We are experts in this field, and we use our expertise to decide the best method of control and removal, including herbicide treatment, manual pulling and removal by mechanical means.
Homegrown can advise on the best method of eradication, arrange the licences, and make the necessary arrangements for Landfill Tax (LFT) exemptions. We are BASIS registered and all operatives using herbicides are NPTC PA1 and PA6 qualified.
Homegrown are able to provide a range of vegetation surveys, including National Vegetation Classification (NVC), hedgerow surveys, river corridor surveys and invasive plant species surveys.
NVC is a standardised method of classifying vegetation communities in the UK and is widely used by conservation organisations to assess vegetation for management and monitoring purposes.
Please be aware that vegetation surveys are seasonal and generally cannot be undertaken in the winter, as such timings for this activity should be factored into project programmes early to prevent unnecessary and costly delays due to seasonal constraints.
