'It Needs Cutting Back'
"It needs cutting back", the words spoken by a four year old. They say it as they see it and on this occasion she was right. The path that runs alongside the canal had become difficult to walk down without being scratched by brambles and overgrown shrubs.
Started last week, Ali returns from holiday to assist the guys with the clearance. The ground cover is strimmed and the epicormic growth removed from the lime trees. The hedge and brambles are cut back with the hedge cutter.
Callum uses the long arm cutter to reach the shrub growth that over hangs the canal and by the end of the day the team have completed three quarters of the hedge, they will return to finish next week.
