Grounds Maintenance Supervisor Job Role
Bluther Wetland works complete
RSS Countryside Management have recently completed work at Bluther Wetland, near Blairhall, Fife. We carried out the works on behalf of Fife Council. We have removed Willow encroachment on the wetland, planted 180 native trees and put up 80 bird boxes, 20 bat boxes and 1 owl box around the site.
"We were delighted to receive a competitive quotation from RSS Countryside Management Ltd for tree planting, willow management and installation of bird and bat boxes as part of a wetland restoration project. They were keen, excellent communicators to ensure they met our requirements, and got the work completed quickly and professionally. It was added value to know that we supported training of young people in the rural sector by appointing RSS Countryside Management Ltd."
