There comes a time when doing everything yourself becomes impossible or at very least an uphill battle, I’d like to include mopping the kitchen floor and polishing the parquet floor in the hall in the list! But no, we’re not made of money, so coping with housework will have to stay a joint hit or miss arrangement.
But when it came to the hedge something had to be done! We like our hedge, the birds that nest in it, it’s bright green foliage and the privacy it affords. But it has become just one thing to many to cut it ourselves. Of course my partner doesn’t agree, why is it that a guy will never admit that balancing on a ladder with a hedge trimmer at a dangerous angle is not such a good idea?
So, having Googled all kinds of gardening firms in and around Brighton, who seldom answer emails despite insisting they give free quotations, I am lucky to have discovered Adam. He is from Peacehaven with his ‘Tidy Garden Services’ and does hedges, grass, tidying up and things. Next day he arrives to give an estimate.
Three days later here he is, balancing on a ladder with his eye shields and ear protectors on and one of those petrol driven cutters, tackling a very overgrown and unruly hedge. A few hours later and the hedge is trimmed to a more sensible length, birds are still happy, some bright green foliage remains and our privacy is still in tact.
Well done Adam!
He’ll come again for some extra trims later in the year but now all is right with the world!
