Lawn mowing & hedge trimming
I can mow lawns weekly or fortnightly. Edging up and spiking of poorly drained areas can also be undertaken.
Spring bulbs can also be introduced into informal areas of your lawn to create an attractive, low maintenance and wildlife friendly area.
I can trim hedges or lower them for easier future maintenance.
Pruning can improve the shape and health of your shrubs and fruit trees and increase yields of flowers and fruit. I use professional tools and keep them sharp and oiled!
I keep perennial & annual weeds under control using hand tools, mulching and tactical planting. A variety of barks and mulches to smother weeds and enhance your beds and borders can be supplied. Planting the right kind of shrubs and perennials to shade out most weeds, keeps future weeding to a minimum. Hand weeding in spring and leaving as little bare ground as possible works best in most gardens.
Weedkiller health fears.
It is now a legal requirement for paid gardeners who spray chemicals to hold PA1 and PA6 certificates. Recent research suggests that garden chemicals have entered the water supply in the UK and may be more harmful to health than the labels suggest. There has been much concern about Glyphosate, one of the more common products. France intends to ban this weedkiller within five years. After much debate, the EU have agreed to licence these products again, but limit their use in public places.
Please note that I no longer use chemical weedkillers, as I have little confidence in their safety.
