The Garden Escape after-care team help with autumn tree fall damage

by | Sep 28, 2014 | Blog, Residential

Autumn is a magical time of year: the sounds, the smells and the sights of fruit laden hedgerows and trees. All set against the backdrop of leaves on the turn as the sunlight hours wane. The evenings drawing in, the chill in the mist laden morning air and the wildlife busily battening down the hatches in readiness for the long winter months to come. Yet lurking in the lengthening shadows is the ever present threat of stormy weather, to rip the leaves from the trees and even trees from the ground.As happened to a client recently, who had the misfortune of a toppling tree landing upon their Garden Escape. 

Distraught at the damage wrought, they contacted us to see what we could do to help and were delighted with the aftercare service we were able to provide. A small team was assembled from our cohort of dedicated craftsmen and, in no time at all, they had cleared the fallen tree and damaged parts of the building; rebuilt the roof and made the entire building as good as new.

We endeavour to maintain a close relationship with all our clients after we have completed our final check and handed over the keys. As well as works that may need to be carried out under our extended warranty scheme (10 years for foundations, floors, walls, windows and doors; 20 years against roof leaks) we offer a range of post-build services. So whether you’re looking for a jet wash and re-oiling of the deck; the installation of a sustainable energy solution or repairing weather related damage, we are only one phone call away.

So here's to Autumn and all that she brings.

To Autumn

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
   Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
   With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
   And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
      To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
   With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
      For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.

Who hath not seen thee oft amid thy store?
   Sometimes whoever seeks abroad may find
Thee sitting careless on a granary floor, 
   Thy hair soft-lifted by the winnowing wind;
Or on a half-reap’d furrow sound asleep,
   Drows’d with the fume of poppies, while thy hook
      Spares the next swath and all its twined flowers:
And sometimes like a gleaner thou dost keep
   Steady thy laden head across a brook;
   Or by a cyder-press, with patient look,
      Thou watchest the last oozings hours by hours.

Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they?
   Think not of them, thou hast thy music too,—
While barred clouds bloom the soft-dying day,
   And touch the stubble-plains with rosy hue;
Then in a wailful choir the small gnats mourn
   Among the river sallows, borne aloft
      Or sinking as the light wind lives or dies;
And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
   Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
   The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;
      And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.

John Keats 1820
