days are getting shorter...

September is generally a cooler, gustier month than August and the days are noticeably shorter. While there's not as much to do in the ornamental garden at this time of the year, if you have a fruit or vegetable patch, you'll be busy reaping the rewards of harvest. It's also time to get out and start planting spring-flowering bulbs for next year and you can collect seeds for next summer's colour too. Make the most of the remaining warmth while you can!

I would definitely recommend them for garden maintenance

The work was done efficiently and in good time. Paul was friendly and the work was very well done and all the rubbish was removed. And Paul gave advice on maintaining the hedges. I would definitely recommend them to anyone and will use them again. Thank you.
