Hawthorn Hedge – St Ives Cambridgeshire

Richard our Ed’s Operator in St Ives Cambridgeshire recently rejuvenated an old hawthorn hedge, which in parts had become overgrown with ivy.  Richard, who recently completed his chainsaw maintenance and cross cutting course made use of power tools to cut through the ivy which in some areas had trunks as thick as the original hawthorn.  In other areas, the hedge needed patching with new, four year old hawthorn plants.  Once the hedge was cleared and tidy, 50 metres of fencing was erected on the field side, with the base buried below soil level to exclude rabbits from the garden.  Richard said the job was very satisfying, and looks forward to seeing the hedge come back to life in the spring.
 
 
 

The Dangers of Using a Blow Torch

Ed’s Garden Maintenance Operator Mark who covers the Bournemouth area sent in these photographs with the following explanation:-

Mark was contacted by the customer after his neighbour had managed to catch fire to his hedge.  The neighbour was using a blow-torch to kill weeds and caught the fence alight which subsequently set alight the conifer hedge.  By the time the fire brigade arrived and put out the fire, over half the hedge had been burnt.  Mark was asked to remove the entire hedge including twenty conifer stumps and prepare the area for a fence to be erected and then create a border so that shrubs could be planted.  
What a great job Mark has done.

Mark said “This clearly demonstrates how dangerous using a blow torch for weed killing can be!”  The customer is so pleased with Mark’s work that he is now doing regular work for him.

Absolutely Beautiful Garden Maintenance

Car Parking
BBQ Area

Ed’s Garden Maintenance Operators Pierre and Penny who cover the Camberley area recently prepared a garden for a rental property.  The owners were delighted and described the work as superb and that Penny and Pierre had provided them with an “absolutely beautiful” looking garden.

Lawn mowed

Some of the tasks included substantially pruning the highest parts of the rhododendron hedge and levelling the remainder.   Leaves were cleared from the gutters, BBQ area and car port.  The grass was blown clear and then mowed and finally the whole area was given one final sweep.
