"Was great to have Emma come and get the garden into shape. She did more than just weed, and showed initiative in sweeping path and raking up and care for the existing plants as she went about her task. Emma was very reliable and easy to communicate with (which required a lot of conversation as the weather was against us all week. She worked hard and fast. "

What do gardening services include?

Gardening services range from basic mowing and maintenance to full landscape gardening. Here are some of the most common gardening services and what you can expect from each:

Garden maintenance & mowing
Regular garden maintenance is important to keep your property neat, under control, and looking its best. Whether you need a one-off tidy up, maintenance while you’re away on holiday or regular upkeep, a gardener can help.

Lawn mowing will start by clearing the area with a general garden tidy up. Then your gardener will mow all grass areas, including your front and back lawn, and footpath. Then they’ll use the brushcutter to whipper snip any edges. Gardeners can also prune your trees, trim your hedges, and rake up leaves and debris.

Weeding & pest control
Gardens can struggle to flourish thanks to problems like weeds and pests that eat or crowd out your plants and lawn. Your gardener can help by weeding your lawn by hand or spraying lawns with herbicides that kill the weeds, without affecting the type of grass you’re growing.

Your gardener will also work to prevent weeds in the future by mulching around plants over a layer of newspaper or cardboard so weeds can’t go through. Your gardener will treat unwanted pests using pesticides, tailoring the treatment to keep your home and garden free from spiders, caterpillars, cockroaches, and ants.

Garden planting
Need to fill out your garden bed or plant up a new section in your garden? Your gardener can help choose the right plants that will grow well in your garden. They’ll consider factors like optimum plant positioning, sunlight levels, moisture levels and rainfall, seasons, natives vs introduced species, maintenance needs, and more. They’ll choose plants for your garden that will look at home in their surroundings, but also match the level of care and maintenance you (or your gardener) can provide.

Lawn restoration
If your lawn’s been overrun by weeds or it’s looking a bit dead or bare in patches, your gardener can help with law restoration, too. They can level out any holes, aerate to encourage healthy growth, add nutrients, spread the correct seed variety, and adjust the pH of your soil.

They’ll choose the right variety of lawn to lay turf or seed your lawn. Finally, they’ll water it all in, ensuring you know proper lawn care measures between visits, or set up irrigation for daily automatic watering.
