Bob’s Lawn Mowing – first cut for a brand new lawn
Bob Dulieu, our Ed’s business owner in Horsham, is proud of all his lawn mowing jobs but this one is just a little bit extra-special.
Bob told us why he is so proud of this lawn mowing job? “That’s because only a matter of months ago, this lovely lush lawn was just a rather scrappy piece of gravel. Hard to believe, isn’t it?”
From gravel to lawn mowing – the remit…
“We went to visit the customer to talk through exactly what they wanted. The customer really didn’t like the gravel bed and wanted something far more colourful. They were keen to have new lawn laid but only if it could look really good. We were confident that we could deliver in this respect.”
And so, this January (less than four months ago), Bob and his team (including Baloo the dog, Bob’s quality control manager) started work on the garden makeover.
The sequence of events…
Bob followed the sequence of events as follows:-
- First of all, they dug out the gravel bed.
- Next they added topsoil and loam
- Finally…. they carefully returfed the whole area.
The newly laid lawn…
Luckily, Baloo had been on site throughout to check that everything was being done to the highest standard!
Bob was really pleased with the end result. But more importantly, what did the customer think. The customer was thrilled with the work carried out. They couldn’t believe the transformation and were delighted that Bob’s team were able to make such a difference to their garden. They were very keen for Bob to follow up with the lawn maintenance going forward.
A happy stripy ending…
Bob’s just been back to complete the first mow. He said ” It feels great to see this lawn looking so good. That’s because we have been responsible for every stage of it. If we hadn’t done the work to such a high standard, the end result could never have looked so good. As they say, the proof is in the pudding. I love my stripes and I think you’ll agree that these ones are the icing on the cake ‘”
The customer is even more delighted with the job now that they have seen the very end result.
And what’s Bob’s job now? “My job is to keep everything looking just as fantastic going forward!…Baloo will keep me on track of course!”
