garden clearance & weed control
Overgrown, out of control, gardens & grounds devalue your property, put off buyers or tenants and could conceal potentially costly hazards.
Whether your outside space is heavily overgrown with brush and has become a dumping ground for other garden waste, or is just a little overdue for attention, Top Notch can return it to its former glory in a surprisingly short time. Working with homeowners, letting agents, landlords and commercial property managers, Top Notch will remove waste materials and rubbish, cut grass and hedges, prune trees, repair or renew fences and clear overgrown pathways and drives. ready to live in, sell or offer to the rental market.
weed eradication & control
hard surface weed killing
When applying any herbicide it is crucial that the target plant is at the correct growth stage when treated. For paths, patios and driveways, Top Notch will apply herbicide when weeds are actively growing green leaves, usually late April to mid-May for Spring treatment, with a subsequent optional spray in late Summer if required.
weed control for lawns
Without chemical intervention, there are things Top Notch can do to help make your lawn a less welcome place for weeds to grow. Aeration, watering and mowing to the correct height for the time of year are all important in discouraging the growth of weeds.
A long lasting and balanced slow release fertiliser, with an efficient broad spectrum, systemic herbicide that is not available to the general public, is safe and very effective in creating a greener healthier looking lawn within just a few days. The most common weeds such as daisies, buttercups and dandelions are usually controlled after one application.
japanese knot weed
There is an urban myth about controlling this plant!
After many years experience in eradicating knot weed from gardens and sites in Pembrokeshire, Top Notch know that the plant can be relatively inexpensively controlled with the application of the correct herbicide, at the right time, using approved professional techniques.
Even so, due to the plant's aggressive nature, it can sometimes take a number of years to eradicate completely, so the sooner you identify Japanese Knotweed, the sooner Top Notch can start on a long term treatment and removal plan that doesn't involve digging out and transported to specially licensed sites at huge expense!
Ask Top Notch for their advice, based on best practice guidelines issued by the Environment Agency, about the control of other invasive weeds species such as Giant Hogweed and Himalayan Balsam.
overgrown brush clearance
recover that valuable asset
Bring neglected outside areas back into service to improve the appeal and value of your property. Severely overgrown shrubs and trees can be cut back, felled or pruned into shape, hedges trimmed. patios, paths and driveways cleared and weeded.
Top Notch hold a waste carrier certificate issued by the Environment Agency, a legal requisite for waste carrying and disposal, so they can also dismantle and clear sheds or other outbuildings and remove builders rubble and other non-biological waste.
All green garden waste will be cleared, removed and re-cycled, but woody waste can be chipped on-site to produce mulch!
mulch & mulching
A mulch is a loose covering of material placed on the surface of cultivated soil, best applied in spring and autumn when the soil is moist and warm. Mulching helps soil retain moisture in summer, prevents weeds from growing and protects the roots of plants in winter, but it also gives your garden a neat, tidy appearance and can reduce the amount of time spent on tasks such as watering and weeding.
Wood chippings are particularly useful as a mulch. being biodegradable they break down gradually to release nutrients into the soil and help improve its structure. Layers can be replaced when the material has fully rotted down.
natural meadow sowing
Wildflower meadows are an increasingly popular alternative to lawns and borders, especially on previously overgrown areas that can be taken back to bare soil, providing a stunning display for many months, or years if you opt for a perennial meadow.
Sown in spring on ground that had been prepared late the previous autumn, your meadow will be fully established by summer!
By creating a meadow with native vegetation, you create a habitat that will attract a variety of wildlife species. Some flowers provide nectar and larval food sources for butterflies, seeds for songbirds to eat and shelter for insects.
These insects, in turn, provide an irresistible food source for birds and small mammals.
