First New Project Of The Year
Not slow at getting going in the new gardening year, the team have immediately started a new project in an unkempt corner of the garden.
Towards the end of last year three large Leylandii trees were removed and the area they had occupied left abondoned until now. The first task of this new project was to remove an old, tired privet hedge and replace with a new yew hedge. Rather than dig it out using manual labour and brute force, the New Holland tractor with the grap attachment was used to rip it out. The project will continue over the coming weeks.
