COVID 19 - we are an essential service and pursuant to the Ministry of Primary Industry guidelines can apply fertiliser and carry out pre-fertiliser weed control or paddock spray out through the level 4 lockdown period. While we appreciate contact with you, we ask you do not approach us or handle our equipment during this period.

Please                  for the MPI key services list indicating what services may be carried out through this period


If you are time poor and own a lifestyle block that demands a significant portion of that time in its maintenance, then we have the answer for you.

We look after people that don't have the time or the equipment to get the most out of their Lifestyle Blocks and pastures. 

  • You could spend your money purchasing and maintaining specialist equipment to mow, spray, or fertilise your lifestyle block. 

  • You could spend your time using this equipment a few times a year.

  • You could try and deal with the hassle of trying to do the job yourself 


You could save the hassle and call us to sort it for you. 

We can arrange an automated monthly/yearly schedule so you never need to lift a finger but know the job will be done.

Healthy soil and pasture means healthier animals, with the ability to run more animals, it means the vines you plant are healthy, not to mention the aesthetic value of seeing a paddock/vineyard/orchard of grass, not weeds. Soil fertility is about the capacity of the soil to provide nutrients to growing plants of the right kind in the right proportion at the right rate. We can offer you fertiliser and biological activators to increase the microbe activity in your soils and put life back into them. 

We have had surprisingly great results applying certain liquid fertilisers through the summer period which has seen instant results once the rain has come with the grass showing excellent colour and growth over grass that had not had the fertiliser applied. See our gallery page for photos.

Nigel has Approved Handler and Dangerous Goods certification. 

You can supply your own spray/fertiliser or we can source and supply for you.


We have the equipment, skills and knowledge to keep your lifestyle property paddocks looking great with our ATV powered mower and spraying. We can look after your other maintenance requirements just ask. We are Redwood Valley locals so know the local weather and conditions.

You will be surprised what can be achieved with a relatively small investment however the results you see will be tangible.
