Our work

Pond Dredging at Hare Hill

Using horse power at Hare Hill 

Hare Hill’s ornamental ponds desperately need dredging but heavy machinery can’t access the garden and would create too much damage. Now, after trialling an innovative solution, using heavy horse power, we need your urgent help to improve these ponds for wildlife and to reduce the risk of flooding in the garden.
