Our gardening service is aimed at people who are unable to tend to their gardens for various reasons such as illness, disability or age.
We do ask for a donation of £25 per hour to cover our costs which are around £91 per day. This donation covers our fuel, office overheads, maintenance of the gardening equipment, staff costs and most importantly our volunteer expenses.
On average we have 4 or 5 people tending to your garden, but this does depend on whether we have volunteers who are available to help.
From April 2021 to March 2022 we managed to make 219 visits.
We can: Tackle most basic jobs in the garden including weeding, pruning, shrub removal, painting fences, hedge trimming, mowing and rotovating, planting new plants and general tidy up, including garden clearance (please note we are only able to take away garden rubbish - no sofas or fencing).
Our efforts were rewarded when we won the Queens Award for Voluntary Service in 2007 - an MBE for Voluntary Groups.
We operate on Mondays to Thursdays between 9.30am and 2.00pm, although we will be out and about assisting people with their gardens so please leave and message and we will get back to you.
The benefits to the client can range from a quick garden tidy up to a complete garden makeover. One client said
"I can no longer do it myself and my garden always looks much better afterwards".
