  • It was so bad last night (almost to the kerb) that I cut back the worst eight branches myself. Ensure all that side is cut to the back of path. (Not sure how wide that should be, covered in vegetation)

  • Job complete, the 'owner' has made a good job of that. However, what appears to be a 1.5m wide path is actually 3.0m wide. Some clearance would transform the access.
