testimonial
The success of the Children’s Garden Project is a direct result of the excellent collaboration between Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and Ground Control. Ground Control was always willing to go the extra mile to fit in with Kew as a functioning, public garden, making changes, sometimes last minute, to accommodate various requests. Ground Control staff at all levels were friendly and approachable, with clear lines of communication maintained and regular meetings to discuss progress. Ground Control have been a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.
