Garden Services Available

I offer a wide range of gardening services to customers in Suffolk and Essex including lawn mowing, lawn care and maintenance, hedge trimming, pruning or removal of small to medium trees, herbaceous border care including weeding and watering, garden clearance and advice on attracting wildlife to your garden.

I also provide garden landscaping services including the installation of fences, sheds, wooden decking, composite decking, patios and raised beds etc. Please click on the links at the top of this page for more details on all of the above garden and landscaping services.

Prior to commencing any work, I will meet you at your home to discuss your gardening requirements and offer free advice if needed, before agreeing a schedule and cost for all of the work that needs undertaking. For routine gardening jobs such as lawn mowing, hedge trimming, weeding and pruning I charge an hourly rate of £20 which includes the provision of tools and fuel as required. If green waste such as lawn or hedge trimmings need to be removed from site, then there is an additional charge of £10 per bulk bag for this service. Alternatively I can dispose of the waste on your own compost area or brown garden waste collection bin at no additional cost. For larger jobs likely to last more than one day including garden clearance, fence and patio installations, tree removal and turf laying etc. then I can offer a fixed price in advance for the agreed tasks, regardless of the time taken to complete them, giving you peace of mind that the costs will not escalate beyond your budget.

For projects of extended duration or involving the purchase of materials such as fencing, turf laying, or decking, patio and shed installations etc. a deposit payment will be required in advance, if you need me to arrange and purchase these items on your behalf. The remainder of the bill can be paid after the work has been completed to your satisfaction. All terms and costs will be agreed in writing in advance of work commencing or the purchase of materials.

To discuss your requirements, please call 01473 567678 or 07421 031034, or alternatively email

If I am working on site or with a client, I may not be able to answer your call immediately, so please leave your number and a message, and I will return your call as soon as possible.
