With over 15 years of experience in world-renowned botanic gardens, The Royal Horticultural Society, and managing the 40-acre grounds of a private estate, Dave knows a thing or two about managing gardens to the highest standards.

Nothing fancy and over-the-top in our management plants, we’ll simply put down the facts, how to initially get the garden growing, what plants should go or be moved, and a bit more detail on bigger projects, along with when they should be carried out. Depending on your needs, we can offer an annual management plan, a site visit to you, and your garden each year, with a new plan detailing where to go next with your garden.
