This covers all aspects of gardening work.

All work is quoted for and we will provide you with our T&Cs.
Planting, Plant Choice & Pruning
I can guide you through what is often a bewildering choice of plants and ensure that the plants you select go in the right place, with the right aspect and in the right soil.
From a border refresh to raised borders to new border creation, it is worthwhile investing in getting advice for planting plans to ensure you get an amazing display that will last for years to come.
I am adept at pruning and can rejuvenate existing plants and trees.
I can also help with improving soil conditions and assist with growing fruit and veg from seed.
Waste Removal, Composting & Costs
Garden maintenance creates lots of green waste. We are registered with Bristol Council to remove it and it is charged at £30 per tonne dump bag. We dispose of at legally registered site.
Alternatively we can use your green council waste bin or we can create a composting system for you either using a heap or bin that can turn green pruning waste into humus, an ideal fertiliser and soil conditioner for strong, healthy plants.
As well as being a responsible and sustainable disposal option, composting saves you money by endlessly recycling the nutrients.
Organic Gardening Methods
Always wanted to garden organically but just needed a few pointers? Let me equip you with the skills to turn your garden into a mini-nature reserve!
Learn how to create your own compost system, tackle pests organically and discover how the no-dig system works even in the smallest of plots.
Creating healthy soil is at the heart of all I do and I do not use pesticides or condone the use of plastic grass. Nature is all its forms is important for creating biodiversity in our gardens.
I offer a 1:1 Garden Masterclass where we discuss in-depth what you would like to focus on.
During our 2 hour appointment we cover how you would like to improve your knowledge, maintain what you currently have and suggest plant choices based on your garden requirements. We look at the aspect, soil conditions and assess how to improve your space.
It all takes place in your garden, giving you the confidence and skills to maintain your garden for the coming season.
Prices start from £149.
