We have, within our Help at Home team, a Gardening and Handyperson team who can help with small jobs around your home or even garden.


Our Gardening and Handyperson Team can undertake basic gardening such as cutting the lawn, weeding, planting flowers, path clearance etc. You can book a one-off visit or regular visits to suit your needs. All of our gardeners have their own equipment.

We can also help with odd jobs such as changing light bulbs, hanging curtains or with minor household maintenance.
