We are delighted to support the Dorset Wildlife Trust

Dorset Wildlife Trust Logo


Wessex Grounds Services are delighted to support the Dorset Wildlife Trust and hope that we can help the Trust to make a real difference.  In 2015 we undertook some innovative verge enhancement and maintenance trials in West Dorset, in conjunction with the DWT.  We are hopeful that these trials will lead to a better understanding of grassland management locally.


One of our winter projects is to give the Dorset wildlife a helping hand by building bug hotels, bird boxes and hedgehog homes. We will be installing these in a number of school grounds.

Wessex Grounds Services continues to invest in new capital equipment.

Managing Director, Stephen Harris has just ordered a third John Deere 1445 power unit combined with a Trimax cutting unit from New Forest Farm Machinery.  This is a first rate ride on cutting combination and will enable us to attend to the new work we have acquired this year with capacity to spare.


Nick Leeming, newly appointed Operations Manager said - “for a small company I have been pleasantly surprised at how well equipped the company is, with a good depot, tractors, gang mowers, four ride on mowers and five cutting decks, not to mention the tractor mounted field care equipment and a vast array of hand held powered equipment.  We are ready for anything”.
