Stuck for gift ideas this Christmas? Worry not: we’ve the perfect presents for your friends and family. Welcome to your Greenbelt Guide to Garden Gifts – heartfelt offerings that will keep on giving all year round.
With a background that has always been in agriculture, forestry, horticulture and all things based in country life, it should come as no great surprise Peter Lamb chose to set up Eskvalley Landscapes in 1976.
Eskvalley are grounds maintenance contractors who work with property and land management companies.
“We’re a family business and pride ourselves in working to high standards with a highly trained workforce,” says Peter. “We’ve been contracted to Greenbelt for more than 10 years now and cover a wide variety of work programmes with them.”
As we move into August, extreme weather patterns are only just beginning to die down at last in many parts of the country, following both heatwave temperatures and record-setting summer rainfall throughout a rather turbulent June and July period.
Want to do more this summer? Follow our free Get Outdoors For Summer guide. Today we’re wandering through the UK’s best woodlands – the perfect places to discover the magic of nature and our wonderful wildlife.
There are also secrets to be uncovered. For example, did you know a ‘walking tree’ is born when the trunk’s middle becomes so rotten the tree falls over . . . but it re-roots and grows again?
At Greenbelt, we’re crazy about conservation, maintaining hundreds of woodlands, wildlife corridors and biodiversity-promoting wildflower meadows… but did you know that we also look after more than 100 designated listed buildings, historic locations and certified Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI)?
