Garden maintenance and horticulture in Hertfordshire

Call me on 07546750985 for your garden maintenance needs.
I’m Ben, a gardener and plantsman who began my career specialising in ornamental gardens under the award winning tutelage at Capel Manor Gardens.

I have attained a Distinction* (Star) in Level 3 Advanced Technical Horticulture (City and Guilds), and I am a horticulturalist and a keen plantsman.

I pride myself on bringing beauty and care to garden borders, utilising my knowledge as a horticulturalist to ensure that your garden is maintained to a high standard in the correct way at the right times.

I am experienced in both small gardens and managing large sites of many acreages. I can advise, plan and carry out the year round maintenance of gardens of all sizes.

From your first phone call or e-mail I will listen to your needs and ask you questions about your garden and what kind of work you would like to be carried out. I will then arrange to come and visit you to take a look and will give you a quote then and there in most cases.

I am fully qualified, fully insured, and cover Hertfordshire and surrounding areas.

It is my aim that you are able to enjoy your garden throughout the changing seasons.

To arrange a visit call 07546750985 or email on ben@gardenerben.com.

Garden Maintenance

The garden maintenance service is a year round complete care package for your garden. Be it a small english cottage garden or a large garden with its own varying micro-climates, Ben will be able to look after your garden and keep it maintained to a high standard.

More than just a tidy-up, the maintenance service covers all the challenges of the four seasons, and is perfect for making your ornamental plants look their best through out the whole year.

Larger Gardens

The needs of a garden of half an acre in size and above are very different to the needs of the average small back garden.
I work in very large gardens with a lot of acreage and even more planting, and I understand the challenges of running such a large site.
You need to keep on top of the waste, control the budget and still turn out a wonderful garden that fits your needs through out the year.

I offer a bespoke service that is the same hourly rate as my smaller gardens, that includes the management and maintenance of such large sites. I can source plants, contractors, plan future works and keep to a budget set by you.

Specialist Pruning

From Fruit Trees to Wisteria to Roses and Climbers, many plants require a particular method of pruning to get them looking at their best. Ben has the knowledge and experience to help your plants reach their full potential.

The pruning service includes promoting a healthy growing plant, and inspecting for pests and diseases, as well as signs of nutrient deficiency.
