Medway Fencing Team
Our Medway Landscaping Team has been constructing fencing at the Medway City Estate during March replacing old and dangerous will solid dependable protection. See photos below. In addition to the fencing work this team has been busy preparing for the new season which due to the cold weather has been slow to start. Early spraying of the sites with Glysophate as early weed growth occurs helps to keep the team fully up to date with the maintenance of the sites.

Canterbury Grounds Maintenance Team
The Canterbury Team have taken on a number of new sites in Whitstable and Faversham. This particular team are helping to expand our service to the East of Kent undertaking regular work in Margate. The Canterbury team also looks after sites in Folkestone, Hythe and Ashford in addition to work in Canterbury City Centre. They have an interesting project starting this month on a roof garden in the centre of the city. Unfortunately for the client a company had destroyed a special planted area by cutting down established Wisteria growing on wire trellis. They had thought the climber was a weed and removed everything thus leading to the insurance job we have now taken on.
Gravesend Garden Clearance & Turfing Team
The Gravesend team has undertaken a number of garden restoration and turfing jobs in the Bexley area. The photos below show the team working in very difficult conditions where poor soil had to be enriched before turfing could take place. Half the garden had decent soil and the other half had a clay mixture. Rotavating was difficult through this material so we added a number of bags of good quality topsoil purchased from Travis Perkins. This lightened the soil and enabled the team to create a really good quality finish which can be viewed in the pictures below.

Tunbridge Wells Grounds Maintenance Team
The Tunbridge Wells team has completed the planting of the bank they had prepared in February. Over 250 selected grasses were set out to provide a feature border at the nursing home. This planting was a real challenge for the team as the plan provided by the plant supplier had missed off a large section of the area to be planted. Paul, the team leader had to reorganise the whole planting scheme to enable the plants to cover the bank. The client was very happy with the final design adjustments.
C & A Landscapes Construction Team
Our Construction team has had a very busy March undertaking fencing jobs in Bexley aswell as clearance work in Headcorn. The pictures below show a garden in Bexleyheath where the client required a replacement rear fence to blend with the sides of her garden and also to provide a hard standing area for her pots. We decided to use Charcoal coloured slate for the hard standing which provides a great contrast to the fence and also an excellent surface to place the clients favourite planted pots.
The Headcorn clearance job required a mini digger to clear the front garden of all vegetation and also to access the rear garden through the clients garage. The rear garden was in a terrible state which we managed to clear within two days. All green waste was brought back to our recycling centre in Hollingbourne.
