Fence & Shed Maintenance

Keeping your fences and sheds looking in as good as condition as they day you purchased them requires regular maintenance. Shed walls can rot from the ground up unless debris is regularly cleared. Overgrown plants with poor air circulation and signs of damp can contribute to the decline of the wood, unless regularly treated.

FLOWER & PLANT CARE

Not all plants are the same, where some require delicate attention others can be robust, surviving almost any environment. The trick is to know the difference, and how to maintain both under all conditions. E.g. understanding a plant’s origin, reducing transplant shock, or knowing how to transport pot-grown plants.

Hedge trimming & maintenance

Established hedges require trimming to keep them dense and compact. Formal hedges benefit from more frequent trimming and formative pruning than informal hedges might. Trimming techniques, whether it’s straight, crisp edges, or shaping the top of a hedge all depend on the equipment used and the experience of the person using it.

DRIVE & PATIO Cleaning

Most patios and driveways can rapidly start to look dirty and accumulate lichen and moss over time if not properly maintained. In colder, wetter conditions this can even become slippery and dangerous. Cleaning and sealing patio surfaces and driveways, regardless of the type of surface (limestone, sandstone, slate etc.) slows down the re-growth of moss and algae. S

Turf Installation

If you want a healthy-looking lawn which appears mature without the lengthy process of seeding, turf installation if the perfect solution. Not only does turf decrease the cost of maintenance, but it supports year-round activity on a surface which is both safe and resilient, while also eliminating the use or need of potentially harmful pesticides or fertilizer.
