Fence moving, ditch filling and ditch clearing – call in Bernard Delaune with his swing shovel and it all becomes very easy, just stand and watch.
We have been wanting to move the fence that we put up around the plantation for ages, it was quite difficult to turn in the space at the end of the rows – the ditch that had been dug originally was in the wrong place, so both these needed re-jigging. We decided to tube the ditch and fill it in so we could move the fence downhill a bit.
It’s much better now and a lot tidier, as Bernard also went further along the still exposed part of the ditch and gave it a good scour and clean up. The trees are doing pretty well and we had a nice crop of hazelnuts from them this season.
