A belated happy new year!

Feb 2, 2017

Welcome to a fresh new year! We’re sorry for the slight delay in wishing you a happy 2017, but better late than never.

A positive start

We entered 2017 with renewed enthusiasm and eagerness to drive the business in a positive direction. As many of you know, last year had its ups and downs for us (and the whole world, it would seem!) but we’re feeling good about the months ahead.

Mark is still keeping our regular customers happy with the smaller maintenance jobs that every garden requires, while Luke continues to beaver away on larger design projects and keep things ticking over behind the scenes.

Luke is due to finish college at the end of May, and has been developing a special interest in dementia-friendly garden design. We all get so much joy from our gardens, and making sure they’re safe as well as enjoyable is a big requirement for those suffering from dementia.

Tidying up

We love this time of year: it’s all about tidying up gardens, cutting everything back before birds begin to nest (the spring will be here before we know it…) and looking at new planting plans for the coming season. Luke has been working at the Millfields planting a small tree Prunus serrula in the grounds that will look truly majestic when it grows and flowers. It’s a great time to take on jobs like these because the ground is nice and wet, and therefore much easier to work with.

Rain, rain, rain

We bet you’re as fed up with the rain as we are! It does make life difficult, as our ability to get stuck into our work relies heavily on the weather. However, it’s given Luke a much-needed opportunity to spend some time in the office, tidying up all those administrative loose ends – such as updating you all with a blog post!

But fortunately, today is a little fairer and we’re looking forward to the warmer weather, the promise of which is just visible around the corner…

Here’s to a prosperous, fruitful and enjoyable 2017 for all of us!

What can we do for you?

Plenty! You’ll see from our list of services and skills that, when it comes to whipping outside spaces into shape, there’s not much we can’t help with.
