Specialist Gardening Services in Devon and Somerset

Hi there, and thank you for visiting my website.

I am an education and horticultural expert specialising in formative and creative tree and shrub pruning, garden renovation & restoration, and horticultural consultancy. Based in East Devon – where I live with my wife and twelve year old son – I combine my passion of plants, gardens and people with specialist gardening services across the South West; which includes seasonal pruning, feeding and composting and the construction of specialist raised beds. Please feel free to make contact regarding your horticultural and gardening projects.

Specialist gardening services

Creating, managing and maintaining the balance between natural and created elements is at the heart of my gardening work considering materials, composition and location of features within the landscape. My work brings together over thirty years in public and private gardens, study and travel. Observations and experience working in natural and man-made landscapes come together to create and manage horticulture and garden projects.
