Does anyone know anyone who needs to get rid of a pile or two ?

Hi mate.

Have you enquired at any of the riding stables around?

Maybe take a trip to Powderham today (take the back road) to the Dawlish Horse show (starts 0930) and possibly make yourself known to any of the owners attending.

 

Good luck.

Hi,

 

I have tried the ones close to me they use it or sell it at £20 a cubic metre :-(

Will I have to pay to get in the show

If it's for your garden plants Andy you won't want to use new stuff.

The urea burns the roots - you'll need well rotted manure (known locally as Christmas Cake!).

The current President at the RBL Branch used to do it by the trailer load - might be worth a phone call.

Or pop in to Be Repaired in Park Road - he owns it or works there.

Thanks Huw

In 2013 the rain washed a lot of our banks away , they all need toping up from the bottom upwards, we have had in over 100 tonnes of soil but we need some nutrients

5 tonnes found 75 tonnes to go

 

Here is an offer I will swap 1 tub of chicken poo for a dumpy bag of grass cuttings.

Large quantities of compostable materials removed for free (minimum 1 tonne)

Just to add I do hold a waste transfer licence, public liability insurance.

I have a large trailer and a 4x4 that can get to most places

For large enough quantities I also have a mini digger.

Thanks for the PM's

As advised here goes,

I undertake grounds work, garden maintenance, lawn care

I use mulching mowers so as to put the nutrients back in.

I currently have 1 day per fortnight of availability if anyone requires my services.

Are hedge cuttings and weeds any use to you?  Will be taking them down to the recycling centre at Newton Abbot otherwise.

Netiquette, hedge cuttings are ok, weeds aren't any use sorry.

If you bag your weeds they will eventually turn to liquid you can then use them as a fertiliser make sure to seive out any seeds.

Thanks for the tip Andysport, I'll keep them separate in future.

I've got a large amount of well rotted horse manure which I usually sell - many tons.

 

I'll swap some for mini-digging a couple of shallow, narrow trenches for digging in a couple of small polytunnels (same location) if you're up for it?
