Complete garden maintenance
We can undertake one-off or ongoing garden care services, including lawn cutting, weeding, pruning, tidying up and patio cleaning. We use no chemicals and all of our work follows organic best practice. Read more about our garden maintenance offer.
All in harmony with nature
All of our work is undertaken in harmony with nature. As we see it, every outdoor space is a patch of the planet and we think every space wants to thrive. We believe that a garden should work perfectly for people whilst enriching nature too.
So our garden designs use specialist nature-based design techniques to create abundant and thriving gardens for people and planet. And our garden maintenance services are organic, using no pesticides or other chemical solutions.
We are passionate about thriving gardens
We are specialists in food growing and edible plants and we also run courses from time to time, to build people's knowledge and confidence in gardening in harmony with nature.
And because we believe in the potential of every green space, we also work with community groups and on larger public space design to bring abundance and nature to as many patches of the planet as we can.
