As a skilled gardener I offer regular visits to help look after your garden all year-round including: timely pruning and/or training of roses, shrubs, topiary and climbers; weeding and edging; border maintenance; planting small trees, shrubs and perennials; caring for containers; grass cutting; leaf clearance; and pruning small trees including fruit trees. I advocate using a seasonal mulch on your borders and vegetable patch in the autumn or winter to maintain soil nutrients as well as supress weeds and improve drought tolerance for the growing season ahead. I can also create chicken wire leaf bins to turn autumn leaves into a valuable soil conditioner. Where possible I use hand and electric tools to minimise air and noise pollution, rather than petrol powered equipment.
Border Design & Renovation
A border can offer year round interest with a mixture of trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs. Borders can also be designed to look great at particular seasons. A shady border, for instance, may be the perfect place for a spring garden. I can also create and maintain vegetable gardens and cut flower patches. Whatever you decide, I will work closely with you to realise your vision and I can often supply plants too or grow from seed onsite.
Seasonal Pots & Hanging Baskets
Containers and hanging baskets are a great way of adding seasonal interest with colour, texture and movement to your areas of garden which are close to seating or doorways. I can plant up your pots and hanging baskets with colourful displays to brighten up your terrace or front step.
