I am a one man band and have only started in business this year. The customers are coming in thick and fast, that I have stopped doing regular maintenance for new customers because I get so many enquieries for new jobs.

"Hi Paulette and welcome to the site..I've sent a friend request because I've an interest in garden design, a job I would like to have for the future. I've not yet had a chance to add friends although I joined this site in Feb, but…"
I run a small garden maintenance business in Thurrock Essex and I provide maintenance for a local church and a small group of domestic clients in and around the area.
I've been gardening on and off for about 12 years and after an injury in my former job I decided to go into business and work for myself.
I love what I do and enjoy meeting and working with people from my area, and of course I love being out side and working in a garden and being my own boss.
I try my very best to give the client want they want and pride myself on their happiness for a job done well.
I provide a basic level of garden maintenance which involves, lawns, bedds, borders, hedges, cutting, trimming, strimming and tidy ups.
I allow the customer freedom to get on with other things in their lives by taking control of their garden maintenance, leaving them to enjoy their green space when time suites. I can manage jobs that clients find difficult due to age or health restrictions.
I price my work by the size, time, tools and level of skill needed for a job, but I do sometimes charge by the hour for cleints who are limited with funds.
I give free no obligation quotes and advice where I can. Just ask.
