Gardening & Maintenance

Work with us. From a seasonal tidy up, garden overhaul or weekly maintenance. With good horticulture and plant knowledge. Covering the south Manchester area, work includes: weeding, pruning, mulching, planting, feeding and fertilising, dead-heading, leaf clearing, even offer advice on improvements to the garden.

I offer a one-off garden maintenance visit or a regular maintenance contract where a visit is arranged weekly, fortnightly or monthly throughout the year. Passionate about my work, gardens and plants I am able to offer a valuable and reliable service.

Contact me either message me on social media (links below) or email: messages(@)gardenersbox(. )co(.uk) - remove brackets before sending.

Plant / House Sitting

If you need someone to look after your plants whilst you are away from home, I plant sitting and home visits to water and care for your house plants and gardens, including allotments. I also offer a hpuse and pet sitting service.


Presently no one pays for lisitings (or product recommendations - free samples would be good!), if you would like to Advetise your service or product go here.
