We are excited to be launching a new general garden maintenance service which offers customers a friendly, affordable, and quality service.

Our service is for people over 55 living in Barnet. And what's special about this service is that all our clients can feel safe and comfortable knowing that all our trusted staff are employed, vetted and DBS checked by us.

We undertake the following tasks:

Grass cutting

Trimming hedges and bushes

Tidying and raking borders

Gardening equipment will be provided by Age UK Barnet, but we will need access to an electrical socket. You will also be required to have a green bin or other way to dispose of garden waste.

We charge £20 per hour and £15 per hour for those on means tested and disability benefits*

Payment by debit card is preferred but if not possible we can accept cash or cheque made payable to Age UK Barnet

Parking: Please ensure that the gardener has a safe and secure place to park during his visit. If there are parking restrictions, then please provide him with a parking voucher.

For an appointment call 020 8150 0963
