We pride ourselves on using the latest technology such as laser controlled machines whilst also sourcing brand new machines from across Europe.
We own and operate the vast majority of the plant we use, even down to these welfare cabins.
Landplan's Trencher machine is used to excavate in a more cost effective manner than a traditional excavator. As a specialist piece of equipment, the trencher is attached to a Landplan tractor and principally used for land drainage and laying cable piping.
The trencher results in a substantially smaller amount of reinstatement works after the initial trenching, lowering the overall costs for the customer. As a beneficial way of creating necessary land drainage, the trencher is particularly useful for work on sports fields of any size due to it's cabability to excavate and deposit the arisings into a waiting trailer or dumper.
For use on soft, steep, wet or uneven grounds, Landplan can provide Tracked Dumpers. Unlike a wheeled dumper, a Tracked Dumper causes the least possible damage to the ground it moves across; due to the tracks it moves on, the Dumper’s weight is spread over a larger surface area, thereby reducing its impact.
Tracks present a more stable vehicle, allowing access to difficult areas and management of harsher gradients.
Landplan can supply and operate a professional laser controlled grading machine to construct playing fields to the specific requirements of the customer. A recent addition to Landplan’s growing fleet of specialist vehicles, the laser grading machine provides absolute accuracy, allowing the pitch or course to be constructed to a precise gradient to aid drainage.
Like a traditional grader, Landplan’s specialist machine, one of only a few in the country, attaches to a tractor and is used to level the ground. However, with laser technology, Landplan are able to complete this job faster and with more accuracy than ever before. Eliminating the need for the time consuming and costly ‘setting out’ necessary when using a traditional grader, the Laser grading machine does not require a Banksman and enables ‘rework’ in a vastly smaller space of time.
Landplan provide a full maintenance program to revitalise sports fields. This includes over seeding to established playing surfaces as well as fertilising, weed control and verti-draining.
When sports pitches are used regularly, the soil becomes compacted leaving a hard surface layer which prevents water from reaching the drainage system (problems can also occur if you do not have a drainage system), resulting in a waterlogged pitch and restricted play. To combat this problem Landplan supply the Verti-Drainer; a specialist piece of equipment that attaches to a Landplan tractor, causing minimal surface disturbance and providing an immediately playable surface.
The Verti-Drainer pierces the compacted surface of the sports pitch or golf course with a series of spikes that lift the turf by up to 50 mm as well as relieving compaction deeper within the soil structure. This allows deep aeration of grass root zones which increases root development and improves soil structure, strengthening the turf of the pitch or course. Verti-Draining results in increased playing time and reduced maintenance costs such as re-turfing and re-seeding as well as assisting drainage.
We have used tree spades for over 20 years and this is a great system to use to relocate a tree. Typical examples include memorial trees.
Landplan have access to 30 acres of mature trees. These are lifted with a specialist tree spade. With our low ground pressure tracked dumpers we can relocate the trees to where you would like with minimum disturbance. Mature trees do create an instant impact.
The process starts with excavating the tree pit as can be seen at the bottom of the photo.

A 20-year-old Oak tree relocated in 20 minutes.
During the construction of a new major road, 100m of established native hedge was lost. We supplied and planted a replacement hedge.
This is the hedge 2 years later. Hedges are crucial habitat and vital food sources for our native animals. The diverse vegetation can be seen here.
We have used tracked dumpers for the removal of whales from Withernsea beach. Watch the full story here.
