Turf Translocation

Turf translocation is often used to preserve flora and fauna, especially where developers need to comply with planning requirements. As there is a limited market for turf translocation equipment, we have designed and manufactured our own hydraulically operated cutting and laying heads in house. Whenever it is necessary to cut different thicknesses of turf, we are able to alter the heads to be able to do this.


Project 1

This project in Wales was carried out on a site designated as a Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC). We transferred grassland between sites two and a half miles away from each other by road. The total area of turf was approximately 12,000 m2.Our specially designed cutting heads were fitted to two thirteen ton hydraulic excavators and the work was carried out over six weeks during the winter months.

The success of the project can be seen by the picture of the wild flower, Penallta, in bloom three months later. We have completed a number of successful turf translocation projects nationwide as testimony to the quality of our system and approach.
