Garden clearing for Mrs E

1 GoodGymer made their way to help an isolated older person in Oxford.

Mrs E wanted a good garden clearing to enable her to maintain it herself going forward. I got to work clearing grass, pesky bindweed, uprooting weeds and removing dead plants, including a lot of dead heather. The grass got a quick mowing and any weeds between paving slabs were pulled up.

After that, there was a section of garden Mrs E wanted completely turning over to recover some tulip bulbs and to remove as much bindweed as possible too. Thankfully I found a lot of bulbs for future use and managed to recover some plants, bushes, and small trees for re-potting.

The garden looked so much clearer afterwards and Mrs E was very thankful. It really seemed to brighten her day and we had a good chat about family, gardening, jobs and the sunshine whilst I did the work.
