Garden Development

With extensive plant knowledge and an eye for planting design, I am able to develop and maintain your garden into the green-space you'd like it to be.

Regular maintenance and development can be carried out weekly or fortnightly. The minimum time for regular maintenance is a 2 hr slot. You can let me know what jobs you'd like done each visit or just leave it up to me to do what needs doing as the seasons change.

Regular maintenance can include some or all of the services listed below

  • Weeding
  • Dividing and re-planting of established plants
  • Planting of new plants, bulbs and sowing of seeds
  • General tidying, pruning, cutting back, leaf collecting etc
  • Pruning and shaping of shrubs, small trees and fruit trees
  • Herbicide application on paths, patios and driveway (£10 extra charge for Herbicide)
  • Digging out damaged, diseased or unwanted plants
  • Winter/Spring application of mulch
  • Planting plans for new areas or cleared beds incur an extra cost (see Planting Plans page)
  • Other tasks as required

I don't generally carry out hedge cutting or tree pruning that requires working at height (even a step ladder) although exceptions can be made. If this is something you would require please call or email to discuss this further.


Regular maintenance is charged at £25 per hour with a minimum 2 hour booking.

One off Maintenance can be carried out on occasions when more than regular maintenance is required, for example, to get a neglected garden back into shape, redesign a planting scheme or re-plant a bed or border. Please contact me a free quote.
