Our Gardening Services


Garden Restoration

Is your garden looking forlorn, with special plants now hidden, and borders blurred by an unruly grass patch? A garden can quickly adopt an unloved appearance but regular garden maintenance will quickly restore this. But there's a silver lining—those precious plants are still there, often ready to thrive once again with care and encouragement. I can offer a realistic view of the plants you have and outline the steps needed to restore your garden's beauty and structure.

Hedge Trimming

Hedges serve as natural and wildlife friendly borders for gardens. They enhance the aesthetic appeal of any outdoor space. However, they require regular maintenance, at specific times of year to ensure they don't become unruly and overgrown. We offer hedge trimming for tackling beech, hornbeam, photinia, laurels, hawthorn and other robust plants. Safety is paramount in our work, so we always use ladders for those hard-to-reach areas, ensuring a thorough and even cut.

Some Frequenly Asked Questions

Is your work insured? - Yes we have public liability insurance cover for all the work we do.

Do you take garden waste away? - No, disposal of garden waste can be very expensive. We will always use a customer's compost heap, or a green bin supplied by the council, or bag the waste so you can take it to the tip.

Are you a trained gardener? - No but I have gardened for over 40 years and learned so much from Granny Tess over the years. I do attend sessions at Rosemoor every month so I can learn new things and be inspired!

Do you work on your own? - I work with or without my customers and bring in other skilled team members.

Which area of North Devon do you cover? - A lot of my customers are based in the Taw Valley and Barnstaple but I do consider travelling further afield for bigger and interesting projects.
