Ashburnham School – Garden Maintenance – Chelsea, London

Gardening Case Study

Today we have a garden maintenance project in Chelsea, London for a lovely school, where we have been regular gardeners for over a year now.

The Brief

Garden maintenance is a big part of the gardening services we offer and school gardens are always in need of regular care.

Our brief was to tidy up the site and prepare it to look attractive for the pupils, parents and staff of the school.

The school has vegetable patches, bee hives, rabbits and playing areas that need to be maintained.

Garden Site Problems

The site is large and there are many kids who are fascinated with our tools and with what we are doing. We try to satiate their curiosity but maintain safety at all times.

Our Solution

The school needs a lot of regular hedge trimming, mowing, weeding and leaf collection.
We put together a plan for tackling these garden maintenance, and got to work on them.

For this particular school garden, we know that when the routine maintenance is completed, the garden and ground look fantastic and make it even more of a school to be proud of.

Here’s how it looks now:-

Seasoned Gardeners - Kids today have all the toys

Kids today have all the toys eh

Seasoned Gardeners - They wont even know it was me... violins please

Nice and tidy, they wont even know it was me… violins please














Garden projects give a lot of job satsfaction and this lovely school does that in abundance.

Successful Outcome

After dodging angry bees, tiptoeing around frightened rabbits and answering the
endless two questions “what ya doing “? And “why”? With the cooperation of the
teachers and the kids impulsive short attention span we are able to get the school looking pristine again.

Love Ashburnham School!

The client was delighted with our work and now their school garden is looking perfect and well maintained, ready for all the wonderful staff and pupils to enjoy.
