Our Testimonials

Great, reliable, knowledgeable and trustworthy gardener with very reasonable rates!     Alison has been coming to garden for us fortnightly through the summer months since Spring 2018.   She  has been reliable and diligent. I particularly appreciate that she's a 'self-starter' as I am no gardener and am not in the position to give effective instruction (however, I'm quite sure she would also be great at carrying out specific tasks if that were wanted)!    Alison advises and prioritises tasks so as to use time effectively; we have given her an overall impression of what we want done long term and she organises herself, diligently making notes to remind herself to do those tasks (chopping back, putting in particular plants) at the right time of year and even propagates plants at home for us.

This year  Alison has redesigned our front garden and it looks fantastic.   I appreciate it every time I walk up the drive.   The area is shady with poor quality soil.   She's taken all this into account in the design, sourced the plants and planted them up for us.   If looks superb.

Highly recommended :)

Alison has transformed our garden! I've gone from slightly dreading going out there because of the quantity of weeds to being delighted every time I look out the window. Her wealth of knowledge and expert advice makes her an absolute gem and she's hard at work even in the worst of weathers. Thank you Alison!


Alison is very reliable and flexible in what she does to keep my garden in good order.  She will do any tasks I ask but also has plenty of good ideas to help make the garden look better.  I am really happy with what she does and would highly recommend her.

'Alison has been coming to us fortnightly since November 2016. She is extremely hard working and reliable.  Nothing is off limits and she will try anything I have suggested.  She is always cheerful and friendly and I for one couldn't do without her. 
I highly recommend her.'

We have been using Alison for gardening for two years and are delighted with her. She is reliable, trustworthy, reasonably priced and always willing to take on whatever gardening jobs you ask, from weeding to replanting. 
Alison is excellent at listening to what you want while offering ideas that will work with your garden. She has managed to contain bindweed in our garden, as well as clearing borders of old shrubs and advising us on suitable replanting. 
Alison has helped make our garden a pleasure to be in, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.

I would highly recommend Alison. She has brought order to the chaos of my garden and it is now a pleasure to look at rather than making me miserable as I fail to keep onto of the weeds! Always on time and a pleasure to chat with, Alison makes sensible recommendations and checks before making any major decisions.  I'm delighted with the progress made.


Alison impressed us from the get-go with how knowledgeable she is, and how focused she is on getting the best out of our garden. She always asks if we have views on how things should be done or where things should go, but we generally don't, and I'm confident we can leave her to make the best decisions. She is here reliably every fortnight and works hard, keeping everything in check and making the garden look prettier month-on-month. She really is a fantastic gardener, and I'd highly recommend!


Alison has been helping me with my garden for a couple of years now. I have been delighted with her work. She is knowledgeable but also honest if it is something she is not sure about and will do the research - which I admire. She is reliable and punctual. 
Would be happy to recommend.
