About

IMG_1857I offer a general garden maintenance service. I prefer to work with clients on a regular and long term basis. This will mean assessing the site, the client’s preferences and needs. I am very happy to offer planting suggestions, or work to a brief. Planting combinations and schemes are my particular interest and I am very happy to advise, design and implement these, large or small.

Although I can supervise and project manage hard landscaping projects, they are not my speciality and would be contracted out.

I offer an honest, reliable and trustworthy service. For many clients, I will need to have access to your house and gardens, so your privacy and security is something that I take seriously. Hourly rates, terms and conditions are published in advance and agreed before work starts.

I look forward to working with you.

Qualifications

Since then, I passed a horticultural art and design course at Capel Manor, LANTRA Award in chainsaw maintenence and cross cutting and City and Guilds Level 2 Principles of Safe Handling and Application of Pesticides. I am qualified to use pesticides in situations where they are necessary, for instance the eradication of japanese knotweed.
