An ecologically sensitive, cost-effective, and socially engaging alternative for managing all kinds of landscapes in and around Nashville, TN. We use sheep.

Nashville is a beautiful city: clear creeks, rocky hillsides, fertile soils, and plenty of sunshine. Unfortunately, like many places, Nashville is not without its share of overgrown and underutilized properties. Non-native invasive plants like Chinese privet, English ivy, kudzu, and honeysuckle quickly overwhelm properties, rendering them unsightly, inaccessible, and ecologically damaged. Additionally, because visibility is obscured, overgrown landscapes are often perceived as unsafe.

Overgrown properties are inherently difficult to manage. The challenges may include impenetrable vegetation, steep topography, proximity to water, as well as the financial burden that comes with hiring workers with all kinds of power equipment to properly clear and maintain the landscape.

The Nashville Chew Crew is proud to offer an ecologically sensitive, cost-effective, and socially engaging alternative for managing all kinds of landscapes in and around Nashville, TN. We use sheep.

Strategically using sheep to clear overgrown landscapes is oftentimes the best first step in the restoration process. Sheep are biologically built to act like four-legged lawnmowers, defoliating everything from the ground up to 5-6 feet high.  Their balance and agility allows the sheep to navigate steep slopes and thick brush with no problem. Once they are enclosed within a targeted area, the sheep are extremely effective at removing all of the foliage and tender growth.

Sheep are an especially attractive option when clearing steep, rough, swampy or otherwise difficult lots that would pose big obstacles and hazards to human crews with herbicides or motorized equipment.
