Countrywide acquired the contract to maintain Mercure's Telford hotel in June 2012, following poor comments online from guests about the poor state of the grass and the gardens.
Shortly after starting we were given free rein to transform the hotels grounds to compliment the 16th century manor house. This included turfing around the sun dial garden, shrub and plant reductions, supplying hanging baskets and planters and more unusually in September we put up our first Christmas tree of the year and covered the hotel in snow as part of a Christmas themed evening. In August 2013 the grounds were used as a backdrop for the BBC filming.
