  • General work in the beds and borders, such as weeding-out (undesirables), thinning-out (desirables), and moving plants to more suitable positions

  • Site preparation and planting - small and large-scale planting, whilst ensuring new plants are given the optimal conditions and the soil is also in receipt of the right care. Plants should thrive, not simply survive

  • Pruning - ensuring that pruning work is done at the correct time of year, with consideration for functionality of the space, as well as the immediate and long term aesthetic of the plant

  • Hedge and topiary clipping


As a business aiming to minimise environmental impact and to actively improve environmental conditions and increase biodiversity, we aim to:

  • Avoid use of mechanised equipment, where possible. 

  • Use tools which are low noise and petrol-free (when it is absolutely necessary to use power tools)

  • Enrich the soil with organic methods, including the recycling of nutrients back into the garden with composting and other natural processes

  • Avoid using topsoil and/or rich compost where plant communities do not need it (many British wildflowers, for example)

  • Avoid the use of peat-based composts, insecticides, fungicides, and artificial fertilisers.

  • Avoid the unnecessary use of water. We will irrigate gardens and individual plants (in particular new plants) where necessary, but not excessively. If an irrigation system is not needed, and the plants can survive on their own, when establishes, this is definitely the preferred approach.
