I give my customers a regular time that I visit each week (weather permitting), typically February to December inclusive or March to December inclusive depending on the needs of the garden.  Work varies with the seasons and from garden to garden, but tasks would normally include: planting, weeding, deadheading, pruning, mulching, soil conditioning and, for some customers, hedge trimming, small tree work and lawn feeds. Every effort is made to create beautiful gardens that are maintained to the highest standards. If you just want your grass cut, you may be  better served by companies that specialize in grass cutting. A waiting list may be in place.
Most of my regular maintenance customers have been with me for more than 10 years. I am able to achieve a very high standard, normally up to "open garden standard" (please view the gallery). In fact, one of my gardens was opened to the public under the National Garden Scheme (NGS) in July 2015.  
Avoiding pesticides, I attempt to work with nature, as organically as possible, to create beautiful gardens.  


Although the bulk of my work revolves around the aesthetic side of gardens, I pride myself on my knowledge of fruit and vegetables... not that a vegetable plot can't be beautiful.  
 Whenever I can, I use my own, home propagated plants.  
A garden is never finished and you must always be thinking 1,2,3,5,10 years into the future. I enjoy planning future displays for and with my customers.  

One-off maintenance jobs can occasionally be undertaken, depending on my workloads.
