Residents on The Avenues get garden tips from industry experts

Published 14 August 2017

ver 25 green fingered residents from The Avenues in Pontefract received top tips from industry experts on how to maintain their new gardens which were renovated by WDH earlier this year.  

The event was arranged by WDH following feedback that tenants wanted help to make their gardens look good all year round. It gave residents more confidence and information on how to care for and maintain their gardens.

At the event Andy Barker from Barkers Fencing gave tips to keep lawns looking good and representatives from Sodexo demonstrated how to make the most out of the plants and shrubs that had been planted in their gardens and how they could ensure that they came back year after year.

Each resident was also entered into a prize draw to win vouchers provided by Sodexo and Barkers Fencing.

Mrs Parkinson from Love Lane said: “I want to thank the speakers for all the useful information they’ve given us today. It’s been really helpful.”

Mrs Cliff from Avenue Terrace said: “WDH has done a fantastic job arranging this talk for us all. We all had a lot of questions and it was a really good way for us to have them answered by the experts.”

Pervez Khaliq, from WDH’s HomeBuilder team said: “A number of residents had asked if we could show them how to look after the plants and turf in their new gardens so we arranged this with our partners, who are industry experts. It was a fantastic opportunity for residents to meet the other businesses that we work with and they really enjoyed the session. It’s another great example of WDH going above and beyond and meeting our tenants’ expectations. Hopefully our tenants now feel like they have the knowledge to look after their gardens and will continue to enjoy them.”
