Vineyard recycling professionals
Are you looking for vineyard recycling services or advice? Trust the experts from ABC. Grapevines are often removed when it reaches the end of their productive lifespan, or due to disease, pest control problems, unproductive yields, or site clearing needs. If you are in need of a removal, look no further than us. We will effectively and efficiently remove your vineyard and then recycle it back onto the land.
It is essential to remove the entire vine, when undertaking vineyard recycling. This prevents unwanted communities of microorganisms inhibiting the growth of a new plantation. As these microorganisms thrive in the immediate vicinity of the existing root structure, removing the entire vine from root upwards diminishes their opportunity to multiply and inhibit new root vegetation and growth.
Furthermore, we provide a compost and wood chip mulch spreading service to spread compost and wood chips onto your plant rows. This waste wood chip mulch provides cover for your new soil by retaining moisture and nutrients which slowly seep to feed the new roots. The benefits of using mulch are numerous and will, when applied according to our specifications, assist in providing better yields.

As new soil can take up to 3 years to produce a harvest worthy of wine making, the first year is essential for vigorous root system growth. This can be achieved by the application of mulch and even applying both compost and mulch. Trust in ABC to effectively and efficiently remove and recycle your vineyards in a timely manner.
