Working outdoors really lets us appreciate the seasons, though none more so than the Autumn.
Around our base in Lewes, East Sussex, the first signs have been around as far back as August, with the leaves of Horse Chestnuts (Aesculus hipposcastanum) showing an orange brown crisp ring effect. As if to celebrate the formal recognition of Autumn, these trees now kindly shower our windscreen whenever we drive past.
It’s a beautiful time of year, but a busy one! The strong winds carve the landscape bare, readying it for the chill and frosts of the Winter, so we’ve been out helping customers get their gardens ready: planting new trees and hedges, surveying trees liable to storm damage as well as making them safe.
It’s windy, it’s busy, but there’s nowhere else we’d rather be. Keep an eye out for future posts where our resident photographer Tam will be sharing more of the amazing sights we’ve been lucky enough to experience.
