I will take care of your garden as if it were my own
What It Is and What It Could Be
Lets begin with a classic example in the garden that so many may have already faced: The overgrown flowerbed. You only turned your back for a second ... and suddenly there it was! It can happen to anyone. But, all is not lost - no matter the circumstances (hope I don't regret saying that!) - and we can win the ground back.
BeforeSo, the first thing we needed to do was define the flowerbed edge. Then dig out literally every last bit of vegetation by the root, that was no longer wanted in the flowerbed.
Moving along to a subject some take great pride in - and others may not be too happy to tackle: The hedge. Be it a lack of time or the trepidation of heights and power tools - simply set up a hedge fund; and give me a shout. I'll sort it all out!
There are many areas on many properties that have been neglected or simply forgotten about over time. Areas that may have been designed and developed for relaxation or as a feature in the garden, that have now become overgrown or fallen into disuse due to a lack of time or ability in maintaining these once beauty spots. These are areas I love to get my hands dirty in.
A picture says a 1000 words - and none-more-so than the following garden tidy and trim. Prior to letting a property, I was enlisted to sort out the gardens at the former home of a very elderly gentleman. The gardens had not been tended to for about 3 years due to his ill health. If you are facing a similar situation and are despairing: Don't! Every problem has a solution, and I just may be yours.
Back Garden BeforeHad this not been the UK, I would have had serious misgivings about what creatures may lurk in the over/undergrowth.
Back Garden AfterI had truly underestimated the amount of work this tiny garden was going to need. In just over a week, I had filled the green garden refuse bin twice (and about 8 builders bags) with vegetation. Oh and: also felled a rather massive Leilandii tree visible in the "Before" pics.
Front Garden BeforeNot as nearly overgrown as the back. Still, all work undertaken with the utmost care and attention to detail.And lovely to have the company and compliments from the neighbours who were delighted to see some care being given to the gardens again.
In the event that a lawn has become a haven for weeds and moss, the better option may be to start over. Or if it is just a patch of bare ground, fresh turf may just be the ticket to improving your garden. But do keep in mind that a lawn does require a good deal of attention and neglect could take you back to square one in a short space of time. So, I am happy to help lay it and maintain it for you.
