As everyone endures lockdown, there's no denying it's been a very strange start to the year.We're all in the dark about how long it will all go on for and the long term implications, but there's a few silver linings as far as I can see. Communities coming together and a general spirit of 'we're all in this together'. More than anything else, we're all appreciating the work of those previously massively under-appreciated. Everyone I've spoken to with gardens (in my line of work, that's everyone), certainly recognising how fortunate they are to have that outdoor space. Hiring a hot tub, is possible and seems to give some welcome relief to them (and kids) from the monotony of the crisis. We're incredibly busy - particularly in Harpenden and Berkhamsted, largely…
This beautiful Flamstead Barn was the setting for a teenagers birthday party. And for the following few days, the grown-ups got to enjoy the hot tub too! With fantastic views over farmland and beautiful countryside, who could ask for much more than soaking in the hot water, sipping a glass (non-breakable of course!) of wine
We've been gearing up for the 2019 season for a while now, but I thought it was about time to post again. It was super-busy over the end of last season, but now the weather has started to improve (I've even fired up my barbeque once!) everyone seems to be thinking about garden activities again. Over the next few posts, I'll show a few pictures that I just didn't have the opportunity to last year. Enjoy! To start, you can tell this was a while ago because the grass was brown! Remember that ? Beautiful house in Potten End, with a huge field ready for party fun!
We've had such a busy end to the year, there's been no time to update the blog I'm afraid. However, Christmas and New Year have now been and gone, and it's time to take a small breather! I'll try to get up to speed by posting a few of the wonderful set-ups we've done over the past couple of months. I'll start with one of the most recent - a lovely home in Hemel Hemsptead (Shendish) where the hot tub was set up all over Christmas and New Year. It was ideal for both family and friends to enjoy.
One lucky 11 year old girl is having a cracking hot tub birthday party. We set up in this huge marquee / gazebo, which had been decorated with tinsel, and they were just adding a massive line of LED lights in a heart shape. Set in a lovely garden in Kings Langley, it looked like they were expecting a fantastic day under the protection of the marquee, whether too sunny or if there's an outbreak of rain. I hope they have a fab time at the weekend!
All set up ready for a 21st birthday celebration! Tucked away in the corner of a quiet close, was this deceptively large garden. Not only that, but the craftsman owner, had built a number of outbuildings by hand, with fantastic detail in every piece. The triumph at the bottom of the garden, was an amazing party area, featuring a bar, pizza oven / open fire and a huge table, all under cover from the elements and next the massive BBQ. They hired the hot tub for their daughter's 21st birthday, returning home from University for the weekend. It was a lovely surprise for her, and her friends.
