We offer a full, horticultural, landscaping and arboricultural service to the wider University and Oxford colleges:
We reuse material from project work, such as the 3,000 tonnes of excavated material taken from the Rodney Porter building. This ballast, called Hoggin, is used to maintain the pathways in the Parks in the traditional way.
Our green waste that is generated as part of our operation, around 400 tonnes, is processed into compost every year. This is used as a soil improver and to help retain moisture levels in the ground during the summer months.

We undertake arboricultural reporting for planning submissions that comply with the British Standard ‘BS5837:2012 Trees in Relation to Design, demolition and Construction – Recommendations’.
The team care for the 1,600 trees within the Parks, plus the rest of the University’s stock dotted around the city – over 3,500 trees in total.
