‘Just about anything that you can think of that involves gardening. My work varies from landscape design and construction to a full maintenance service.’
What does landscape design involve?
I draw an individual design for the customer after discussing their requirements and then complete the groundwork, including any walls or hard landscaping then finish with a planting scheme tailored to their needs.
But what if I am happy with the layout of my garden?
Then I can trim and shape any hedges or trees, tidy borders, plant bulbs, mow and fertilize grass, relocate shrubs, fencing, laying patios, decking or turf, constructing pergolas and sheds (including the base), or perhaps a gravel driveway.
What is a typical days work for you?
It can be very varied from general maintenance; cutting hedging, mowing a clients lawns, edging and hoeing to sourcing specimen plants for clients, constructing fencing or new decking areas to tree surgery.
Where do you work?
I cover an area that includes Hungerford and Newbury to the west and Wokingham and Bracknell to the east, Abingdon to the North and all the surrounding areas.
How long have you been gardening?
Over 25 years now and it is great to be training the next generation of gardeners.
How do most of your clients find you?
Through word of mouth is the most typical way. This is very pleasing for me as it means that people not only like the work I have done for them, but they feel confident in passing on my details as they trust me.
