FAQ's

​​
How often do you mow the lawns?​​

We operate on a weekly or fortnightly schedule for regular lawn care.
Most of our jobs are fortnightly cuts from March to November.

The lawns on our Premium Package are mowed weekly. We are however available all year round to give your lawn a tidy and cosmetic mow over Winter should you require us to do so.

The start and end dates are flexible and set to suit the weather and growing conditions.

Do you use weedkiller and is it safe for pets?

We use glyphosate on most weeds around hard areas. This is safe once dry, so we would recommend not to let your pets wander onto wet areas of spray for a minimum of 2 hours.

The same applies to our selective weed control for lawns.

When do you trim hedges and prune shrubs?


We continually maintain shrubs and hedges throughout the year and will cut them if required, although we do a standard Autumn and Spring trim.
Shrubs that need more care are pruned by hand with secateurs and will get a standard height trim annually to encourage fresh growth every year.
We trim shrubs at the correct time of year to ensure the best results which means there is no incorrect trimming being carried out.

What areas do you cover?

We are based in Blackrod, Bolton, BL6. We cover all the surrounding areas within a 6 mile radius.

How do I pay?

We operate on a pay as you go system, payment can be made by cash, cheque, bank transfer or monthly standing order. We can leave a written invoice or email invoice after each visit.

What do you do in Winter?

There are many garden jobs that can be carried out during the Winter. We provide an all year round gardening service. Job’s such as fencing, patios and small tree felling are ideal jobs to be carried out in the Winter time.

Do you need access to electricity when you visit?

No. All our professional equipment is petrol-driven.

Do we need to be home when you visit?

No, as long as we have access to the garden we can continue as normal. We will notify you one day prior to our visit.

How much do you charge per hour?

We don't operate an hourly rate system. We’ll discuss a fixed price with you to maintain your garden per visit, or we can agree an annual price divided into monthly instalments. This way you know exactly what you’re going to pay every time.

Do I have to sign a contract?

No, unlike many companies, we do not tie people into contracts as we feel this is unnecessary.
