Tidying lawn edges keeps the grass looking neat and prevents it from spreading into borders. We can include this with our lawn mowing service.
- Garden closing
When autumn nights start to get cold, it’s time to prepare your garden for winter. Winterizing not only makes your garden look better during the cold weather months, but will make for easier work in the spring and will protect less hardy plants from the cold. Start closing your garden down when there is frost in the forecast or the temperature consistently starts to drop to the low 40’s or mid-30’s (Fahrenheit), usually around late October or November.
- Grass cutting
We can provide regular lawn mowing services to homes, businesses, schools and councils. We will visit you and give you a free estimate for cutting your lawn on a regular basis. Regular lawn mowing services can be scheduled weekly, fortnightly, monthly or even quarterly.
- Hedge cutting
Hedge trimming is an art. Although it seems like a straightforward task, hedge trimming can have disastrous effects if carried out by an unskilled handler. The temptation is to keep on trimming when really it’s about crafting the shape of the hedge to produce a highly aesthetic end result. We always achieve to a desired effect and will work with you to produce the result you want from your hedge.
- Litter collection and car park sweeping
The most attractive commercial premises can be undermined by an unkempt car park. The first place your customers see when they arrive at your establishment is your car park, and a poor first impression can influence your entire corporate image.
- Organic fertilization
Okay! Lets keep this simple. Mother Earth grew this fantastic planet we live on without the aid of man-made chemical enriched fertilizers to make things grow. I for one would much rather my children and pets were able to play in the garden with the knowledge that it is free from potential toxins.

Garden lighting adds an alternative dimension to your garden; extending the day is just part of it - outdoor lighting can provide a totally different view from the daylight perspective, be it for the summer barbecue, or as an alternative to closing the curtains on cooler, damper evenings. Part of the garden lighting design process is about choosing and applying creative garden lighting effects - then the task is to achieve a beautifully lit garden without seeing the light fittings, so skill in choosing the correct garden lights for the patio, terrace and features as well as outdoor lights for the house is the counterpart to artistic exterior lighting design.
