General garden maintenance; moving and weeding a lawn (about 8m square), clearing (and possibly planting) a garden bed, cutting back a hedge and shrubs, and removing the rubbish. Probably a day's work, maybe a day and a half.
Liam and Steve blitzed the garden in a day; mowing the lawn, weeding, pruning hedges, clearing garden beds, and taking away the debris. A meticulous job done by folks who clearly take pride in their work. Highly recommended by a very happy customer.Scott
I have let my garden get a bit overgrown this summer. I just need someone to come and cut it back, clear it, and take away the rubbish and leave it in a state that I will be able to manage. I imagine it's 1 days work.
Great service, garden now looking nice and tidy.Jackie
Paving and fencing job, required for immediate start.
After completing the work, this tradesman was not up to our expectations nor the spec that he quoted on. He under delivered on the quality and cut costly corners, only for us to pick up the pieces, cannot possibly recommend this tradesman! Peter
I have a tiny garden with grass in the middle and flowers round the outside. I need someone to just really tidy it up a bit and plant some plants because there aren't enough and it looks bear, sort out the weedy lawn etc. Advise me on my little barrel compost heap which weeds love, and hence the weedy lawn. I would then try to keep it ok myself, but would also probably ask for you to return and keep it under control every now and then.
I live 3 min walk from Waitrose off Camden Road.
Thanks in advance. Amanda
Very unsatisfied. I employed Josh for general garden tidying including putting a small trellis along a wall. It blew off in the wind 2 days later as it wasn’t fixed properly and part of it had been sawn untidily. I tried to arrange for this to be sorted but my calls and emails were ignored despite several attempts to get in touch. I didn't receive my receipts for the plants bought - even asking 5 times - which tells me that I was overcharged. Definitely avoid!Amanda

Daniel knows his stuff and tells it like it is. He arrived when he said he would, cariied out work to a high standard and left everything tidy and clean.
Would definitely recommend D&G.Ella

Sorry, I can't provide access but will send you photos.
Jeremy's team did a fantastic job. The garden was trimmed right back, respecting the plants we wanted to keep, and all the leaves and trimmings were tidied away. They arrived on time, were pleasant to have around, even keeping my toddler entertained as she watched at the window, and went to great efforts to keep indoor mess to a minimum. We will definitely use them again. Thanks!!Suzanne
I'm after someone to clear a lot of chopped down branches at the end of my garden & then disposing of it. It either needs chopping down smaller and taking out in bags/a sheet or a mulcher to compress it. There's no exit from the garden unless going through hallway with newly painted walls so needs care. It's a medium sized London terraced garden.
Also the grass needs mowing and some nettles dealing with. A general tidy up. Two or three days work, max.
Look forward to hearing from you.

-Maintain a small garden in a Nursery setting.
-Keeping garden tidy with flowering plants every seasons.
-Involving children in caring for the garden and approproate planting activities with children aged 3months to 5 years old.
We have a communal garden (front and back) that needs basic maintenance on a regular basis. Tasks would be lawn mowing, leaf clearance, pruning, weeding. A neighbouring property would also like a similar service, so it may be possible to link two jobs.
Unsold Job, Updated Details : Urgent job. Please call asap Original : I need someone to supply and fit a garden fence simply to border my part of the garden. I dont need anything fancy. Dimensions are approximately 16ft across, 32ft long and 11ft across. Remember, no fancy fencing, a wire fence with posts will do. If price is right, this job will lead to plenty more!!

Front garden: Measuring 1.8m x 3m. This is essentially a flower bed which is overgrown and so needs weeding and some plants cutting back; and
Back garden: Exact measurements to be confirmed but it's a small London garden. It's mostly paved but with beds on three of the four sides and grass strips in between the paving. Beds will need to be weeded and plants cut back/pruned; decking and tiles to be jet washed; and grass strips to be trimmed (these are likley to have to be done by hand with shears as electric trimmers do not get the strips neat).
Please bring your own tools (including jet wash).
Given the size of the front and back gardens, we anticipate that this work can be done within one day so please fel free to qoute for the day if that's your preference.
