Quadron Services Ltd - BALI National Landscape Award Winners 2014Traditional Garden, West Midlands
The enthusiastic lady head gardener at this huge 26 hectare Victorian public park in Bermondsey is working with the client officer to drive maintenance standards. The bedding displays are beautiful, the attention to detail on rose beds and shrub areas is excellent and the grass cutting is impressively consistent. The use of herbicides is avoided and hot foam control is currently being trialled in selected areas with other areas being hand weeded or mulched. Bedding plants, when changed, are re-used. Having started with the contractor as a litter picker the head gardener has, over time, developed very good horticultural knowledge and used this to lead her team to deliver the highest standards of maintenance.
