Hello, my name is Lucy. I hope you will find all the information you need. Please click on the 'services' tab to see what I provide, my portfolio contains pictures of work I have completed but I don't have a smart phone yet, so  taking photographs is low on my list of priorities as is building a 'slick' website. These things take a back seat to actual gardening! Thank you for your understanding. The website will eventually grow and evolve so feel free to come back and see how it has progressed. Please use the contact details if you wish to make an inquiry. You can find my prices at the bottom of the page. I provide free consultations and quotes on request





About me

Hello and welcome.

I am a professional horticultural gardener, I believe that gardening is also a part of the arts and to shape, by pruning and planting digging and watering is where i am at home. I achieved my RHS level 2 diploma in Horticulture at the University of Bristol Botanical gardens. I have 13 years of experience and cover  the  Bristol, North Somerset, Somerset and South Gloucestershire areas.


My sevices include , Topiary, Yew, Box  and Ilex topiary shaping and pruning, planting, weeding, leaf clearing, seasonal tidy ups, restoring, reinvention or redesign of beds and borders, replanting, repositioning of plants and shrubs and most horticultural jobs.

I bring  a wildlife friendly gentle and natural approach to gardening for those who need and want to look after their own garden but cannot or people who have recently aquired a garden and would like help  to develop and nurture it to suit their own specific needs.







 The outside areas of Bristol can be accesssed by me cycling to work. I like to cycle to jobs where possible because it has a low impact on our environment, by not producing harmful emissions and I can bring my tools in my bike trailer. Lawn mowing is available  as I have other transport for larger tools. This not only helps our traffic problem but it keeps me fit too!

What do I charge?

£ 130.00 Day rate (7 hours) or

£ 20.00  per hour.

Jobs can be individually pricd also to keep a budget.

I provide  free consultations and quotes.

I  can change the look of your garden using simple natural methods, considering the tasks and needs of the plants and type of soil which live there.. This is not 'instant'  gardening ,  I work efficiently with the garden and horticultural knowledge to look after, preserve and create beautiful gardens.

Methods of gardening are important to me and working with the different dynamics and wildlife of a garden is so much fun. There  are many ways to garden but  with my experience and knowledge,  working with nature and using tradtional methods helps to ensure that the changes or improvements are there to last and  impact less on the environment, developing the garden for the future by looking after the nutrients and bio deversity of the land.
