Landscape and Garden Design, Construction and Maintenance

We are a small York based team of landscape gardeners specialising in creative design, professional construction and progressive maintenance services.  Founded in 2004 we work with an awareness of our impact on the environment and have a strong focus on green issues.  As a company, we have a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience which help us to constantly improve the way in which we work.  We like to work closely with our clients in order to achieve a personal and unique service.  Our focus has remained to deliver the best possible service and value for money in everything we do.  We have a very close attention to detail in both design, construction and maintenance.  We draw influence from many different styles of gardening and are constantly challenging what is achievable.  We work in a wide range of places from domestic rural and urban gardens, historic gardens, schools, woodlands, housing complexes and communal grounds.  We also maintain sports turf and are certified contractors for the City of York Council. 


We combine our clients' ideas with our own design skills to create individual and unique gardens. This is done through close communication, sharing of ideas and progressive thought. It is my aim to reflect aspects of customers' homes and personalities in their gardens.


We offer complete construction from design to completion. This includes all aspects of hard and soft landscaping. We aim to work in a conscientious, responsive and flexible manor with minimal disruption to our clients and their neighbours. We tend to construct gardens in an organic manor and do not necessarily interpret designs in the same way a builder would an architects' drawing.


We offer regular maintenance visits specific to individual needs. This includes pruning, mowing, maintenance of borders, hard standings and hedge cutting. We aim to reduce the use of herbicides and other chemicals in favour of spending the necessary time needed to keep our gardens kept at a high standard. Weekly, fortnightly or monthly visits are available between March and November.

Garden Development

In addition to our garden maintenance services, we also offer specific development plans for customers wishing to improve and alter established gardens. This is done through careful consultation and long term planning. We often use creative pruning techniques to add form and structure to neglected trees and shrubs. This kind of pruning work combines the practical knowledge of horticulture with art and sculpture. Combined with alterations to planting schemes, hard surfaces and layout this development work can offer an alternative to complete re design and construction.

Tree Surgery

We provide full and comprehensive tree services for domestic and commercial clients. This includes surveying and consultation, planning applications and fully insured aerial pruning, dismantling, support mechanisms and felling. We apply our knowledge of pruning techniques combined with a sense of form and structure to achieve the best results.

Grounds and sports Turf Maintenance

We offer maintenance schedules for bowling and croquet clubs, cricket squares, football and rugby clubs. This includes mowing, aeration, scarifying, fertilisers and herbicides, top dressing, line marking and pest control. We also maintain large commercial sites such as schools. housing estates and businesses. We employ the same care and attention to detail to these sites as we do to domestic gardens
