Gras"Grass Cutting"s Cutting

Grass cutting is at the heart of what we specialise in. We operate the very latest cutting equipment to suit the demands of any type of grassed area. From formal lawned areas requiring regular cylinder mowing to large sports fields requiring cutting we can operate on a weekly or two-weekly scheduled system.

We identify the requirements of the different grassed areas on your site and match the best type of mowing equipment to suit each area.

By constantly investing in the latest machinery we are able to utilize the most fuel efficient equipment available.

 


"Hedge Trimming"Hedge Trimming

Our hedge trimming garden maintenance is completed to ensure your sites are always looking their best.

We can provide hand and machinery based hedge cutting services using our tractor/flail cutting units or our recently brought hedge cutting machinery.

Hedge cutting via the Tractor mounted flail cutting is completed with consideration to wildlife, especially nest birds. Hedge trimming is included in the winter tidy to ensure that your hedges look their best all year round.  We ensure that your hedges are ready for those important events including Perspective Parents Evenings and other events held at your school.

We use a scaffolding tower to reduce any high hedges if required.  All employees have received the correct health and safety training to ensure all trimming is completed to an efficient and high quality standard of work.

 


Invasive Weeds

We are now able to remove and treat Japanese Knotweed, Himalayan Balsam, Giant Hogweed and other invasive weeds safely and with the knowledge to prevent it returning. If Japanese Knotweed is not treated correctly, it will spread very quickly through the grounds.  We use a herbicide to treat Japanese Knotweed rather than pulling and cutting this invasive weed as even the smallest stem or root can grow into a new plant and roots can shoot laterally.

We can also provide selective weed killer which can be applied to front reception lawns and cricket wickets to remove dandelions and daisies. Moss can also be treated on tennis courts, netball court, pathways and playgrounds, reducing the risk to children when playing sports.

The best way to treat invasive weeds is effectively and efficiently using the best methods available for the required weed. For a free quotation to remove the Japanese Knotweed from your site, please contact us using the contact details on this website.

 


"Weed Control"Weed Control

Grasshopper Services provide weed control throughout the year using a weed control based application that is safe and approved. Weed control is part of your grounds maintenance service, preventing weeds appearing over your site. The use of weed control substances and application by Croppers complies with CHAS standards.

There are many reasons to have an approved weed control programme in place:

  1. Helps to keep a weed free and clean environment
  2. Grounds and walk ways are more pleasing on the eye and will promote a good image of the site.
  3. Ensures that the grounds are safe, with less chance of broken slabs and tarmac caused by weed growth.
  4. Weed control can result in cost saving as less money would be spent on repairing and re-constructing pavements and playgrounds.

 


"Hard Surfaces"Hard surfaces

Untreated weed control on hard surfaces such as pavements, kerbs, car parks, school playgrounds or bases of buildings can cause block drains, cracks, fire hazard and collapse walls.

Would highly recommend Grasshopper. They were out with us today trimming hedges and filling in a gap where a part of an old hedge had died. They did a super job and the hedge looks great again. They were out with us twice previously pruning a pear tree. We have always found them to be extremely reliable, always come when they say. Also they really know their stuff about plants and trees, have very pleasant staff and the prices are reasonable. Will definitely use again!

Damian transformed my garden in a morning form a bit of a mess into a much more manageable space. I'm delighted with future potential of the garden and look forward to working with Grasshopper services again. Worth mentioning impressive horticultural knowledge and a considered approach to pruning/removing plants. Thank you!

We live part of the time in Dublin and needed someone to look after our raised flower beds when we are away. We hired Grasshopper Services and have been very pleased with their work. Damian is the landscape specialist who works on our property. We are ever amazed at his knowledge of plants and their needs. He does an amazing job trimming and pruning and preparing the gardens for the winter. He also does an excellent job keeping the weeds at bay. We have a walled garden with no back entrance so Damian has to carry the waste through our Victorian rowhouse. He is very conscientious and careful when traversing our home. He is always on time. I would wholeheartedly recommend Grasshopper Services and especially Damian to look after a garden.

So pleased with the work carried out in my overgrown garden by Grasshopper Garden Services. Trees and shrubs were cut back with both care an aesthetic awareness to leave a beautiful and manageable area.
