Hedgerow Maintenance - About our hedgerows.

agicultural contracting 1

Hedgerows are not only an important aspect of our culture and heritage but also form a very important role in any farm. Acting as a corridor for pollinating and natural pest reducing fauna, they also act as natural and free boundary to the wonderful Irish field. They protect crops from wind damage and also act as a way to reduce soil erosion and water run-off. Modern machinery and technology has offered ways of vastly increasing work load and thus pushed the limits of field size, resulting in hundreds of miles of hedges being ripped out. However, for those in charge of maintaining both established and newly planted hedges there are a number of important steps to keep to.

Under the Wildlife Acts, 1976 (2000), it is an offence to cut, grub, burn or otherwise destroy any vegetation growing in any hedge or ditch, during the period beginning on 1 March and ending on 31 August.

However exemptions are provided from the restrictions, in the interests of agriculture and forestry.

At Raheenmore we provide a range of Hedgerow maintenance services for a number of our agricultural clients and equestrian facilities in the area. We have over 16 years in the cutting and maintenance of hedgerows and would be please to advise you on any areas of hedgerow maintenance that you may have.

Joomla! is all about allowing you to create a site that matches your vision. The possibilities are limitless; this sample site will get you started.

There are a few things you should know to get you started.

Every Joomla! Web site has two parts: the Site (which is what your site visitors see) and the Administrator (which is where you will do a lot of the site management). You need to log in to the Administrator separately with the same username and password. There is a link to the administrator on the top menu that you will see when you log in.

You can edit articles in the Site by clicking on the edit icon. You can create a new article by clicking on the Create Article link in the top menu.

To do basic changes to the appearance your site click Home, Site Settings and Home, Template Settings.

To do more advanced things, like edit the contact form, manage users, or install a new template or extension, login to the Administrator.

Some quick tips for working in the Administrator

  • To change the image on all the pages: Go to the Module Manager and click on Image Module.
  • To edit the Side Module: Go to Extensions, Module Manager and click on Side Module.
  • To edit the Contact Form: Go to Components, Contacts. Click on Your Name.

Once you have your basic site you may want to install your own template (that controls the overall design of your site) and then, perhaps additional extensions.

There is a lot of help available for Joomla!. You can visit the Joomla! forums and the Joomla! documentation site to get started.
