Our Gardening Services
Pruning and Planting
If you love how your garden looks, it's generally because you have a great selection of plants that are positioned and pruned to look at their best. We are on hand to help you achieve that for your garden. Depending on your location, size of garden, type of soil, how much gardening you want to do (and many other factors), Sarah helps identify the plants that are perfect for you and gets them planted for you. She is on hand to help with ongoing tidying and pruning so your garden always looks a picture.
Hedges make lovely boundaries to gardens, but they can be labour intensive a couple of times a year when they get overgrown and need a trim! We have a selection of hedge trimmers and shears (to use on laurels), always have a ladder and always use sheets to collect the clippings to save time in the tidying up stage. We rake up all the garden waste so your hedge looks like it's had a cut.
Weeding and Tidying
Whether it's a basic tidying service for your garden, or regular maintenance you can be sure we know our weeds from our wisteria! For gardens that have been left to run riot for a month or 2 (or even 10 or 12!) we can help. If you need to get ivy into check, remove branches from over-sized shrubs, clear a bed of over-grown weeds. you will be amazed at some of the treasures that are revealed and can be used in your super tidy garden. Call us in for a one off garden tidy or at regular intervals when the weeds are growing!
Sometimes the outside starts looking a bit green during the winter months, which may come from a build up of algae on paths, decking, driveways and garden furniture. Stay safe by getting a power wash booked in to removes moss and slime from the surface.
Grass Cutting & Strimming
Nothing looks nicer than a freshly mowed lawn, with or without stripes. We have a petrol hover or petrol rotary mower with grass collecting box, so we don't need an electric supply, or for you to be at home. During the summer months we can mow as frequently as you would like and as the weather allows. We can supply a holiday cover service if you are heading off on a long break and also use your ride on mower. We also help with strimming of banks, long grass in paddocks and hedges.
If you have a single pear tree, a selection of fruit trees or a collection of apple trees, we can help with their pruning, planting and management of the space. Restorative and formative pruning will apply to every tree regardless of their age and pruning is vital to ensuring a good crop and overall health of the tree. Phone for more details.
