14th August 2016 – Melford Hall

We had two main jobs to tackle today, along with some other important work being done.

On our last visit we started to trim the hedge along the front of the property, but this had since grown up again. This time we had extra trimmers available to us, so we tackled the hedge head-on and got it all trimmed back and looking much neater.

The compost area needed extending, so many hands got to work creating two new bays that will no doubt be full before too long!

In addition, the dahlias were deadheaded, and some other trimming and weeding done, all of which helps the regular garden team and keeps the gardens looking good for the visitors to the property.
