After a hectic festive season, 2020 is off to an absolute flier for our hard working team. Our tree crew have been run off their feet with some damage control post bushfires, and also after our recent acquisition of Custom Tree Care - a small Hills-based tree company.
A second truck and chipper are on their way, which will help the guys keep up with the workload. After a steady start, the landscaping guys have kicked into overdrive and have a few really exciting projects on the horizon too! This group of lads are brilliant at what they do and are continuing to learn new tricks and techniques, whilst always maintaining our extremely high standards. Trends in this industry seem to change regularly which is great for keeping everyone on their toes!!
As expected this time of year, the turf and irrigation team have been extremely busy installing new irrigation systems or repairing existing ones, as well as keeping the lawns looking as good as possible during the hot spells! A granulated wetting agent (Hydrolink Gran Plus) has been the flavour of the month as once applied to a lawn or garden bed, it allows the water to penetrate deeper into the soil, meaning the the water is retained for the roots to absorb it. This product can save up to 30% in water use throughout our long and harsh summer - which you’ll no doubt agree is a huge benefit on many different levels!
Our commercial and residential maintenance crews are as busy as ever and continue to pump out some amazing work.
Some may say that maintaining properties on a weekly or fortnightly basis may become monotonous, but when you treat each place as your own and grow with the gardens, as our guys do, it becomes more a pleasure than a chore! The amount of feedback we receive from satisfied clients about how much our guys can achieve in a short amount of time is unreal and very pleasing as we are always looking for ways to be as efficient as possible!
Another busy month down and no doubt February will be a stomper too!
