Chaffin Works are specialists in weed control and the elimination of invasive plant species. A sustained programme of weed control using herbicides can make the appearance of an area more appealing and increase the effectiveness of other grounds maintenance activities.
Chaffin Works own and operate all the necessary equipment to deliver an effective programme of weed control including tractors, quads, lances and hydraulic knapsacks.
Japanese Knotweed rapidly colonises new ground, out-competing native species and creating a number of additional problems such as damage to property, accumulation of litter and waterside erosion. Chaffin Works are able to undertake a number of different Japanese Knotweed removal and control activities
dependent on the level of control required.
Under the Weeds Act (1959) it is a requirement for landowners to control the spread of ragwort. The plant is commonly found on roadsides and verges as well as in some pasture land.
Chaffin Works devise and deliver effective Ragwort control measures in accordance with the code of practice set out by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). Our ragwort control programmes include a multi-herbicide approach and regular performance monitoring/reporting.
