That’s a mega project to be involved with!

Yeah some fun angles and tricky bits low power cables on one part that had to be covered as only a few feet off them
It's a blended clay and gravel mix that you can get different shades and stone colours got to order enough or next batch will be slightly different if short
National trust use it a lot on their paths
You put it in minimum of 50mm and up to 100mm and compact with a plate compactor to seal it

You Can put a base of ecoblend type one down and then put the hoggin on thinner as it will bind with the ecoblend

If you are putting type one down anyway then this could save a lot of money

A over grown lane I cleared out for a farmer last week as council new cycle/foot/bridal way is getting put through top of his fields and others along a main road but his side of hedge
So had to make it look used to not lose access at the top end
So grubbed up all the bulky growth with grab first and dropped over hedge into his field for burning
Then ran over it with 3ft bucket to take and pull out remaining growth and roots and then a final pass with grading bucket to cast up soil build up on lane floor to top of hedge

gotta love those Cornish 'hedges' :cool::giggle:

" A typical Cornish hedge is of stone construction with an earth core, forming a hedge bank as wide at the base as it is high. Natural vegetation grows between the stones, and usually there are bushes or trees growing naturally along the top."

not the sort of thing yer average vehicle is going to go through in a hurry :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
