Covid-19 update - the Grasscutting service is operating as normal for existing customers, but we are unable to accept new regular customers or 'one off' work at the moment.

Let us take the worry out of keeping your garden presentable. If you struggle to keep your lawn mown, especially in the spring and summer growing season, we may be able to help. 

About the service

Please note that this service is currently only available to those who live in the Salisbury District and parts of South Wiltshire.

We provide a grass cutting service to very vulnerable clients who live at home and are struggling to maintain the garden themselves. The service offers basic garden maintenance including grass cutting and cutting back by a friendly, skilled contractor.

Due to the limited capacity and high demands of this service we are only able to offer this to people who meet the following criteria:

- Health problems or disability that significantly affects their ability to manage their garden

- Lives alone (or live with others that also have health problems or disability)

- Age 65+

- Difficulty in finding a gardener themselves, and/or they do not have a family member/friend that could help them with this.



The service costs £15 per hour. We will invoice you and you can pay by cash, cheque or BACS.
