Garden Clearance Project in Carshalton SM5
Description of Work
Young, busy and active family used Grass Barbers garden maintenance services previously, but had to make a break due to house refurbishment project. Once the building work was completed they called us in back again and asked to investigate the situation and suggest what urgent improvements were required to repair the garden. Evaluation visit was completed within 48 hours and written quote provided shortly.
Client accepted and approved all suggested garden improvements. Gardeners started this project by careful collection of building waste, which was hidden under the long grass. We had to cut lawns in 4 times, gradually reducing the height of lawnmowers blade in order to get the lawn to the correct height. Due to no maintenance, weeds established in flower beds, bramble and ivy creeped on fences and play area so had to be removed manually.
Building materials stored on grass area caused damage to lawn. Moss and weeds emerged into patches so our gardeners had to spray and remove weeds, kill the moss and then scarify/aerate the lawns. Some shade friendly grass seeds were sown to oner-seed bare patches.
We spread layer of lawn-sand and top-soil to flatten the grass and improve soil conditions. To further improve the image in front garden we planted a hedge and installed wild flower meadow. This clearance project was a great kickstart of long term project, which can be maintained by landowner or gardening company, such as Grass Barbers.
