Grass Cutting at Virgo Fidelis School

Gardening Case Study

Virgo Fidelis School (recently renamed Henriette Le Forestier) said farewell to their retired gardeners.

The Brief

Fields upon fields of mowing, large hedges to be trimmed and a small Rose garden to maintain.

Garden Site Problems

Lots of grass, ideally a job for a ride on mower but the fields are bumpy and hilly.

Our Solutions

Get Seasoned Gardeners to do it! A man and mower can’t out compete a ride on mower on a flat even surface but at least they can go over an iddy biddy bump (reminds me of Ed209 vs Robocop for taking the stairs)

Successful Outcome

Eight hours of pushing a 50kg mower up and down swathes of grass land. In this situation straight stripes will make a gardener cross eyed. So I picked a beautiful tree and made circles for my own sense of well being and to the curiosity of the children, parents and teachers alike.

Property 2 People – Front and Back Garden Maintenance in Merton

Gardening Case Study

The popular property manager Property 2 People required a quick garden makeover for a landlord in Merton.

The Brief

As new tenants needed to be established immediately the overgrown garden needed sorting out.

Garden Site Problems

The garden was very overgrown and unkept, the precious tenants were either too busy or indifferent, and they obviously didn’t have my number on speed dial!

The lawn required, strimming and mowing. The bushes and hedges required trimming.

The patio was full of weeds and needed weeding.

The beds too were a world of weeds and needed a good hoe.

The front garden wasn’t too pretty either.

Our Solution

With enough notice and a promise to return the keys before six we broke out the elbow grease and ploughed away.

Here’s a few before and after pictures to show how effective we are at bringing some order to overgrown gardens.

Successful Outcome

 
A gob smacked property manager and too naked gardeners. They were happy, our dinner
was well deserved and the new tenants were none the wiser.
