Traditional methods inspire my approach, and human power drives it. To that end, I use hand tools to provide land-based services in Pembrokeshire, West Wales. These include coppicing for woodland management, hedgelaying, and gardening.

Coppicing for Woodland Management

Coppicewood College nurtured my inner woodsman and I am now passionate about managing broadleaf woodland through Coppicing. In short, it benefits the health of the woodland by establishing a mixture of habitats that attract a diversity of life. At the same time, it provides a sustainable method of harvesting wood for coppice products. This is due to coppicing stimulating regrowth. A variety of hand tools are used to provide the human powered element.

Gardening Service

All aspects of garden maintenance are offered, including clearance, mowing, weeding and pruning. To provide the human-powered element as a gardener, I use various hand tools in place of powered ones. I use a push mower or scythe for mowing. I also use the scythe alongside other hand tools for clearing scrub. Scythe mowing has the benefit of being quiet. Furthermore, it can be beneficial to root and soil health.
