Before and after.
The after still looks fairly rough on this hedge. It had been left far too long. It'll grow out and trim up nicely next time.
Found all these little beauties on my travels today.
Dryads Saddle fungus ( Polyporus squamosus), King Alfred's cake fungus (Daldinia concentrica) and a wasp nest, luckily for me it was last years and empty!
Its been good to get back in the gardens on a very sunny day today. Some people have managed to keep on top of the mowing themselves for the last month where others were a bit more jungle like. No problem either way.
If you, or anyone you know, needs help in the garden while isolating then let me know. I can discuss most needs over the phone and will respect social distancing and disinfection protocol at all times.
Last week saw the start of the mowing season which let us get back into the gardens to give the lawns a high cut just taking off the top. Some hard frosts slowed the week up but everything is back on track now. Cuts are every two weeks until the grass really gets going in May. Looking forward to it! If you need a hand with your garden then give us a call 01388 342142. Champion!
A brilliant write up in the Darlington and Stockton Times about our litter picking antics. Thanks again to Andrew Hall, Andrew Hodgson and especially to Catherine Priestley for making us sound so good!
Ten full bags of litter picked from some short stretches of roadside verges around Toft Hill and Etherley today. Tip of the iceberg!
