Maintenance
If I maintain your garden for you, you can be confident that as an experienced gardener, I will pull up weeds and not your treasured perennials and prune shrubs the right way at the right time. Alternatively, if you’re new to gardening, I can teach you how to maintain your garden yourself.  See our testimonial for 1:1 tuition.

Selling your house? – Movers & Improvers

Adaptating for disability/child proofing
Maybe family or work commitments or health problems are preventing you from keeping your garden in the state you’d like. I can advise on ways to make your garden lower maintenance or more accessible, e.g. mulched borders with shrubs instead of flower beds, ramps and rails for those with mobility problems or raised beds if you’re having difficulty bending.

Perhaps your garden needs making more child-friendly or childproof? I can suggest changes that will make the garden safer, yet still exciting for kids, whilst still allowing space for adult use.

Garden buildings, features and furniture
If you’re wanting unique features in your garden from a garden office to a patio set or sculpture, I have a range of contacts and can advise on where to find crafts people who can provide these.

Gift Vouchers
Why not treat your friends and family to some garden design services? Gift vouchers make great wedding or anniversary presents, especially for the couple who already have their full complement of toasters etc. They could use them to have the planting in a border revamped or put them towards a full garden re-design. Just contact us for details.
