Given the quantity of water present at this moment we are obviously letting this water flow away out of use. I would have thought reserves were restocking themselves quite well.…"

I am writing to inform you of my landscaping business, Frensham Landscapes, which may be of interest to you.
I have been working regularly around Surrey and Hampshire providing landscaping services to those who wish to renovate outdoor gardens and spaces. This has included hard landscaping such as patio areas, in addition to soft landscaping such as the laying of turf and hedge cutting.
I have gained valuable experience over the past few years; two of these spent in the South of France actively helping to renovate eighteenth Century barns into modern apartments. On return I worked for eighteen months for a successful local building firm in Farnham.
After acquiring ample experience in this field, I decided to become self-employed, using the expertise that I have gained to work under the name of Frensham Landscapes.
I recently undertook a full-time course at Merrist Wood in which I gained a National Certificate in Landscape Construction and Horticulture which I passed with merit, a valuable experience which highlighted my natural aptitude for creativity, and a passion for turning my own ideas from paper into practice.
I have successfully completed a number of developments, and am currently involved in a few other projects, including patios, a church memorial garden and perimeter fencing.
I am currently looking for opportunities to be subcontracted, so if you believe my services could be of any benefit to you, please contact me and I would be happy meet to discuss possibilities for the future.
If you require, I can provide you with my portfolio of private work I have done as well as many references from completed jobs.
Thanks Laara, when I have a little time spare, I will give you all a blog about my work there! It is truly a fascinating place - it was quite derelict when I started work there, and it has been such a joy to breathe life back into it. The gardens have been attributed to Harold Peto, as he and Ernest George were commissioned to design the house, but we have no firm proof. The gardens were established around the turn of the century, and there is a lot of archive pictures from that time as it appeared in Country Life several times between 1902 and 1956. Unfortunately (as is so often the case with large stately homes) by the eighties it had gone into hands of someone with little resources for or interest in the gardens so they fell into ruin.
