Garden Maintenance

Garden Work

Prune Hedges:

  • A well-maintained hedge provides a good, smart boundary to a garden, but if left unchecked, a hedge can soon lose its shape and end up casting unwanted shade. With a good pruning schedule you can keep hedges under control without too much effort.
  • Hedge Trimming

  • Most evergreen formal hedges like to be trimmed two or three times a year, while they're actively growing. Conifer hedges such as leylandii need regular pruning or these fast-growers will soon outgrow their location.

  • Pruning informal hedges depends on when they flower. Lavender, fuchsia, roses and other plants that flower on the current year's wood are best pruned in early to mid-spring, while those that flower on old wood, such as forsythia, deutzia and berberis, should be pruned when the blooms fade.


Also Jet Wash cleaning to bring your garden walls and paths back to life.


The tools we use:

  • Hand shears are fine for short runs, but if it's a long hedge, invest in an electric, battery or petrol-powered hedge trimmer.

  • We keep hand shears sharpened and let the tools do the job it was designed for, rather than trying to hack away with blunt blades.

  • We also use an electric trimmer, and would need to plug into a safety socket fitted with a residual current device or circuit breaker, so that the engine will cut out if there's an accident.

  • When trimming we keep the cable away from the blade, ideally draped over one shoulder rather than trailing on the ground.

  • Our staff always wear appropriate protective equipment such as goggles and gloves.


Call Us at Roofing and Property Maintenance if you need to re-turf your lawn.

During - all the rear of the garden had to be re-landscaped.  All the original lawn, paving was removed, the ground leveled and prepared for new paving, planters, fencing and turfing.

Laying the turf

  • New Turf Looks Great.
  • Turf helps purify water entering the ground because the root mass and microbes act as filters and capture and breakdown many pollutants.
  • Turf absorbs noise.
  • Turf prevents soil erosion.
  • Turf has a cooling effect – the temperature over a turfed surface on a hot summer’s day will be 10-14 degrees cooler than over concrete or tarmac – beats air-conditioning!
  • The net carbon intake of a well managed lawn is 5-7 times higher than the carbon output of mowing it.
