Gardening gadgets

Welcome to the Grounds Team, our latest gadget – a remote controlled mower which will enable us to safely mow banks and reduce our gardeners exposure to Hand Arm Vibration hazards – the Irus Quatrak!

It has been tested out this week and is equally at home cutting our lawns and cutting brambles in the Taddiforde Valley.
