Washed out

The end of the 2018/19 season is very nearly with us, and on a day like today we look back and think, considering its a seasonal job the winter hasn’t been to bad.

We had some snow late in the season but nothing that affected work really, and we have had that a lot worse. We did suffer the rains before Christmas which knocked us back a bit, along with the odd day here and there a little like today but also  been worse. Then of course you get the nice days which make it a stunning job and office to be working in. Each job is different in poor weather conditions, road side parked on the tarmac and a nice hedge, compared with X amount of fields away from any tracks, by a ditch full of water, slippery ground with sharp tools & chainsaws its all common sense H & S 

Hurdcott Salisbury

75m of South of England , this is just a small section of the total, during the nice weather of Feb 2019

Litton Cheney 160m

At the top of Litton Cheney along the A35, looking down into the Valley 160m length and dropping away over a 47 degrees slope 

297m of South of England Style

220m Dorset Style just outside Swyre

Maybe a little early

For the last 3 months having had a 3/4 hr drive to get to the job, I was on auto pilot this morning .Left same time but to go just 2 mile, still it was quiet out 

Just little bits from current job

Well what a month so far on this job, pouring with rain brilliant  sunshine, signs of others past work, bit of walling right down in the ditch. Looking down the field left hand side done, with about 50m on the right and should finish. The bottom will have to wait its to wet to get to 

A very nice little bit on the Echo Tools UK page

A nice bit of advertising for both company’s I would say
