While we will bag up waste from your garden, unfortunately we are unable to take it with us when we leave, as we do not hold a license to remove garden waste. we cannot undertake tree felling or removal of large bushes etc.  We can advise you of how to join the council subscription bin collection service, which will pick up garden waste every two weeks.

We can accept payment by card or cheque.

From the 1st April 2020, we will no longer be taking card payments over the phone. Instead, all our Gardeners will hold secure payment devices in order to take payment immediately at the end of the visit. We will continue also to take cheque, but we are unable to accept cash.
