Regular Garden Maintenance in South Devon

 We are now taking on more garden maintenance work. 

 

 

 We maintain medium to large sized gardens on a regular basis

This will include; Grass cutting and strimming and edging, borders weeded, shrubs pruned, flowers dead headed, leaves cleared and hedges trimmed and planting, and anything else that is needed in order to keep the garden looking at its best.

With larger gardens there will always be extra tasks required each visit, and this is why we have a set hourly rate and an agreed time to spend in the garden. Apart from maintaining the gardens we do our best in the alloted time to improve things, this may require transplanting plants or suggesting new design ideas.   

There are no yearly contracts to sign, as we like to think we are there because of the standard of our work.

We have specialist hedge cutting gear and platforms in order top deal with tall and wide hedges.

Stone work

The client will never know just how diffilcult this was-unless she reads this. Circular natural stone walling without mortar.

Natural stone walling. 

Building these retaining walls with natural stones from the Totnes area was a joy and a pain. Getting the stones down into the garden required quite a bit of

mountaineering skills plus mountain goat DNA.    

A cool sitting area under a large box shrub, but the resident pidgeon had other ideas. It  followed me around while I built  a number of natural stone retaining walls in this garden, and has slept each night over the last section.Must be a territorial thing.

Bank work

Turfing

Soft landscaping

Creating an area to sit on a sloping garden and planting a selection of perenials and shrubs.

Scarifying

After a very dry summer and lack of soil depth, a lot of the grass died. It was not helped by a lawn caring franchise feeding the lawn right in the middle of the drought.
