DISCOVER OUR VINEYARD SERVICES

Find out how our businesses can fully support your vineyard. From soil preparation to access roads, construction and circular waste disposal we can provide a variety of services to the viticulture industry.

Working in partnership with sister company FGS Agri we can assist with Vineyard and Orchard soil preparation using the latest machinery.

Soil sampling & soil management plans

The FACTS/Wamitab qualified advisors at FGS Organics are committed to the responsible application of fertilisers to land. We can create soil management plans featuring recommendations for your soil while ensuring that all applications to land are matched to your vineyard’s needs.

Supply & application of PAS100 compost

We can supply and apply PAS100 compost soil improver from the Kent, Surrey, Suffolk, Essex or West London composting sites of our sister company Envar Composting.

Cultivations for cover crops

Using our cultivation equipment, we can prepare ground to create a seed bed for cover crop mixes to be drilled.

Drilling of cover crops

We can undertake the drilling of cover crops into small and large areas of ground destined to be planted with vines. The cover crops will improve the health of the soil, rebuild soil organic matter and improve soil biodiversity. This is great for preparing the soil for vines.

Spraying off cover crops

We have a range of precision spraying machinery to undertake the spraying off of cover crops. Prior to ploughing and cultivating, the cover crops need to be sprayed to stop them growing.

Ploughing & Cultivating

We can undertake ploughing and cultivating to incorporate any standing cover crop and any fertiliser products that may have been applied.

Gramegna 3M & Falconero spading machines

We also have our Gramegna 3m and Falconero spading machines. These are mounted agricultural machines designed for loosening and breaking up the soil. Spading prepares the soil prior to subsequent work, preparing the seed bed in a single pass.

The spading machine is used as a tractor accessory attachment in the field. The principle is the same as that of spading by hand with a spade: blades are driven alternately into the soil, clods are lifted and thrown backwards, and the surface is levelled off by the action of a bar or rake. The spading machine detaches rather than slicing, leaving a porous, permeable bed that allows the soil to breathe and absorb water.

Our Gramegna 3m machine is wider than our smaller Falconaro Spading Machine. It can therefore be mounted to a larger more powerful tractor, giving us the capability of covering larger areas of ground more quickly.

From groundworks and construction of trackways to field drainage and aeration, we offer a wide variety of services to the viticulture industry.

Trackway
We can create trackway and access roads to enable safe movement of vehicles and equipment around your vineyard. Temporary and permanent trackway solutions can be installed to suit customer needs. We can also repair and reinstate existing trackways.
WASHDOWN BAYS
We can install wash down bays for vineyard sites. This solution enables machinery to be cleaned down in a safe area with the dirty water contained so it can be removed, avoiding contamination of the land surrounding the washdown bay.
ERECTION OF BUILDINGS
We offer the full package of works required for the construction of buildings – from groundworks and concreting to the erection of frames and walls. Examples of building uses include tasting rooms, visitor centres and stores.
RESERVOIR/LAGOON CONSTRUCTION
We have the expertise and machinery to undertake the construction of reservoirs and lagoons for the storage of water. From small lagoons to large reservoirs, we can create a solution that works for you.
PARKING AREAS
Construction of parking areas to provide safe and level parking solutions whether it’s for public vehicles, HGV’s or vineyard machinery.
RAINWATER HARVESTING
We can construct and install rainwater harvesting systems. We can install overground and underground storage tanks fitted with filtration systems and pumps for reusing the water along with installing the pipework to feed the rainwater into the storage tanks.
FIELD DRAINAGE
We have specialist equipment to improve field drainage. Using our laser grading-controlled range of trenching machines, we can cut a trench. lay land drainage pipe and back fill drainage stone in one continuous action. From small areas of a vineyard to a large-scale drainage installation design.
SPECIALIST WORKS
We can also undertake specialist vineyard work such as aerating. We have a self-propelled aeration machine that will open the soil to improve air exchange, enhance water and fertiliser uptake and improve root longevity.

Our commercial organic waste collection and recycling services offer convenience and value for money.
We make sure your waste is as sustainable as it can be.

TURNING WASTE INTO ENERGY (AD PLANT)

Food waste collected by Countrystyle Recycling is taken to Anaerobic digestion (AD) plants to produce green energy from biodegradable waste. These plants break down organic matter in the absence of oxygen which causes a microbial digestion process that produces biogas, which is a mix of methane and carbon dioxide and is captured to produce heat and energy. This valuable gas provides a sustainable energy source and reduces reliance on fossil fuels.

REDUCING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

Decomposing food waste in landfill produces methane, a harmful greenhouse gas and a major contributor to climate change. Diverting food from landfill helps to reduce overall greenhouse gas emissions.

We can help you achieve sustainability goals and Netzero milestones.
