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

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 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.

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