A family has been able to enjoy their garden once again after it was transformed by Waverley’s service provider, Glendale, from an overgrown lawn to a clear green space, ready for planting.
As part of Glendale’s 25th anniversary celebrations the company launched the Community 25 initiative, offering to carry out a garden makeover, worth up to £1,500, for deserving residents.
The initiative was run in partnership with a number of Glendale's clients in the South East, including Waverley Borough Council.
The company asked Waverley to nominate a resident it felt would benefit from the makeover and so the council put forward Mrs White – a single mother of three boys from Farnham.
A team of nine specialists from Glendale’s local grounds maintenance team carried out the clearance work in the garden. The work included clearing out old garden furniture, overgrown vegetation and rubbish before raking and reseeding the grass. Three arborists from Glendale’s Surrey based tree team removed a hedge and used a stump grinder to clear the roots and stumps so that a new fence could be installed
