The Ed’s Operators are making the most of the excellent September weather and their diaries are full of varied jobs.
The extreme summer heat has taken its toll on gardens and there is a lot of work going on restoring gardens to their glory. Once again, we are seeing green lawns and mowing is in full swing.
In July, we posted regarding how things were going for Dave our Ed’s Operator in Andover. We asked him how things are going now it’s September. This is what he had to say :-
“ High Summer felt quite different business-wise this year, with the extreme heat and its impact on mowing. However, with the way the Ed’s business model works, I found it really easy to cross-sell other services and my figures were on track even when the thermometer was hitting 34 degrees. “
“What it’s meant though is that much of the ‘normal’ summer demand is kicking in now. There is a lot of mowing going on at the moment . September is usually a fairly busy month but this year has been amazing.”
“I’m not complaining about lots of mowing though. It’s great to see lawns looking green and lustrous again. And I enjoy nothing more than creating some mean stripes!” (Just a reminder of what Dave’s stripes look like…)
“It’s not just lawns though. I’m really busy with lots of varied jobs at the moment. With all the sunshine, punctuated by some showers, everything is growing like crazy at the moment!”
“Here’s a hedge I recently did too. I tried my best not to disturb its inhabitants too much!”
“I enjoy being an Ed’s Operator all year round but this is an especially fun time of year. The weather is lovely but not too hot and the late summer growth spurt gives us a lot of opportunity to make gardens look great again. I love seeing them transform before my eyes. It’s very much looking like the current activity levels will continue through to October too. I’m just hoping I manage to get my diary clear for Christmas! To be honest, I’m only half joking. Last year some of our Operators were working right up until Christmas Eve. Seasonality – what’s that?!”
