Plymouth Company Rents Out Goats For Landscaping

PLYMOUTH (CBS) – A Plymouth landscaping company has come up with a unique and environmentally friendly way to manage weeds and brush.

The company, Goatscaping, is renting out crews of five or six goats to clear out brush for municipalities, golf courses, airports, homeowners and whoever else might need them.

Plymouth Company Rents Out Goats For Landscaping

Goatscaping President Elaine Philbrick keeps about 30 goats as pets. But thanks to her business, they aren’t getting a free ride.

“We’ve been booking a month ahead. We’ve had them out working steadily this year,” Philbrick told WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz.

The results from Goatscaping aren’t instant. An acre takes about a month for a team of goats to clear out. Philbrick says fences are set up around the goats, which will eat just about anything, and they’re left to graze on plants like poison ivy, thorn bushes and other tough brush.
