This article reports that Geoff Taylor's Estate & Field Management contracting service aims to provide a complete package for landowners who want to improve the amenity and environment value of their properties, or who want to keep them in good fettle and have neither the time nor resources to do it themselves. Taylor's firm specialises in either the agricultural or amenity sectors. Taylor's full-time staff of six tackle anything from spraying jobs and mowing big areas of formal lawns to fencing, ditching, planting trees and dredging silted ponds.
