Our month in your gardens!

June has been super busy for Moe’s Mowing. With unseasonably hot and dry weather, mixed in with biblical rain showers, grass and hedges across the county have needed our attention. We’ve cut no fewer than 90 lawns in the last two weeks of June, an unofficial record for us! Take a look below at some of most recent work…

Here’s a small selection of hedges we’ve trimmed and shaped over the last month…

With the exceptional weather and people making the most of their gardens, we’ve had multiple request to lay new patios. The one below is one we’re particularly proud of. Not only did we lay a 30sq. metres of grey sandstone patio slabs, we also erected the six foot high fence surrounding it with concrete posts and gravel boards. Basically, a fence and sitting area for many, many years to come! All it needs now is a barbecue…

A smaller project this month was to remove the small lawn at the front of this property that had unfortunately become infected with cutworms. The owner opted for a much lower maintenance option. We landscaped and removed the effected ground, sealed it with landscape fabric and then laid and levelled 20mm green granite chippings to cover the 65sq. metre area.

We’ve had some exciting projects this month

May was very busy for us with a couple of garden transformation projects and we have some great before and after photos of them.

We’re particularly proud of this one. Tasked with the removal and filling of an old pond, we then constructed a 2.8 metre circular patio. Edged with decorative blocks, the owners can enjoy the great weather on this lovely patio throughout the summer months.

Up next was laying a fossil sandstone patio. Covering nearly the full width of the property, this space will be perfect for the summer but also providing somewhat ‘clean’ access through the colder and wetter months too. We also installed some raised beds at this property too, giving the owner a couple of easy to maintain options for growing crops.

Another smaller job this month was to install a corner patio with a curved edge. Each of the tiles were cut to fit, with the offset sizes giving a modern look. It just needs a barbecue adding now…

Spring has sprung!

At Moes’s Mowing, we’re continuing to operate as normal within strict accordance of the UK government’s guidelines around the Covid-19 pandemic. So please get in touch should you need any of our services.

Blessed by a run of decent weather, over the last month we’ve completed a number of projects for our valuable customers.

We were also tasked with felling a Eucalyptus tree in stages because of multiple properties surrounding the area, meaning that we were unable to fell the tree in the usual fashion. Using our own safety harnesses we climbed the tree to safely break it down and safely remove the wood for the customer.

This customer needed their gate replaced and we were able utilise the existing posts. Made to measure, the gate was installed quickly and is a much more robust solution to the previous gate.

Another smaller project recently was the below. Using patio slabs, we laid a path directly to a customers shed for firm, year round access directly from an existing patio.

Storm secure fencing

With much of the South-West being battered by storms Ciara, Dennis, and Jorge in early 2020, much of our workload has been replacing damaged fences.

One particular customer is located in an area continually hit by high winds so we advised and supplied a solution that will serve its purpose for many years to come. Off set panels relieve pressure by allowing some of the wind to pass through, taking away much of the strain forced upon regular panels and posts that would, with time, become damaged or end up completely blown over.

Here’s some more of our recent fencing work…

With a break in the storms we were able to landscape the front garden of this quaint property. Each side of the footpath was sealed before Cotswold stone chippings were laid. The final step was constructing a pair of raised flower beds that will provide the premises with some lovely colour once the spring comes.

Laser tech patios…

Despite working in the great outdoors, modern technology is filtering through to our working days and we’re now using laser technology to ensure our patios are laid with perfect accuracy. Gone are the days of using a length of string wound around two old screwdrivers…

We’re also able to implement this device when erecting fences, laying turf, building raised borders and almost any job where only the highest accuracy is enough for us and our customers.

It’s not too late in the year for your patio to be laid so please get in touch to discuss your requirements….

Now laying driveways…

We’re expanding on our usual range of garden services and we’re branching out into laying driveways. We’re particularly proud of this one…

Covering 80 sq. metres, we dug out the footings and laid the foundations before outsourcing the tarmac from a reliable and local firm. It was finished with charcoal block kerb edging and we think the end result is just perfect, creating a hassle free driveway for years to come.

Featheredge fencing…

Early Summer has been a busy time for Moe’s Mowing including the construction of this 80 foot long and six feet high Featheredge fence! The old fence was beginning to deteriorate a little and more often than not, it makes for a much easier removal while it’s still intact instead of waiting for it to collapse or break, exposing your garden and losing some security of your property.

Fence

We offer a full and safe removal of your old fence and a professional installation of your new version where we can advise on the best solution for your property before work takes place, potentially saving you money and maintenance. Please get in touch for a free quotation…

Is this the perfect Summer garden?

We’re particularly proud of this recent renovation of a clients garden, preparing it to be ready for the Summer months! The photos explain themselves however a days work alone went into preparing the sub base, including 5 tonnes of top soil and 3 tonnes of sand for the perfect turf foundation.

The same customer enlisted our services to lay their new patio that totalled 58sq. metres (the turfing covered 115 sq. metres!) so it’s safe to say that we covered nearly every inch of their outside property! We’re so pleased with the end result and we know our customer is going to love spending their evenings in it…

If you’re looking for the perfect patio for Summer barbecues, simply get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to quote for you…

More than just mowing…

One of our customers had a small problem with their existing paving slabs next to their driveway so we removed them, laid better foundations and replaced the slabs with new as a couple had broken from being laid incorrectly. All in a mornings work…
