Please enjoy a selection of my past and present projects. I am lucky to work in beautiful gardens, located in The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, Oxfordshire, Leicestershire and Surrey. The majority of my work is trimming, shaping and maintenance (including treatments for pests and diseases). I also design topiary and hedging, as well as supplying and planting. Most of my projects are regular work so I revisit them every year. This allows me to develop the topiary and hedging shapes over time and I’m able to notice any issues with their growth that may need attention. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to know more about my work.

Regularly trim and shape a row of mature standard beech trees in early September. The beech balls are 14 foot high and act as a visual barrier between the garden and pasture land.
Lonicera nitida shrubs shaped into organic shapes inspired by water and sand polished pebbles found on the beaches. Lonicera is fast growing so will need regular trimming throughout the growing season.
Trim and shape the box hedging in this Italian style front garden. Box blight had been found in other areas of this garden so the box hedging is treated twice a year with a protectant and systemic fungicide and Topbuxus foliar feed applied throughout the growing season.
Regularly trim and shape these pleached hornbeam that form a walkway leading to the main garden. The walkway is planted with tulips and alliums for Spring colour. Hostas and ferns then take over for stunning foliage interest throughout Summer and Autumn. The pleached hornbeam requires at least two trims a year to keep it looking…
Maintain box topiary and hedging a garden that has an emphasis on mixed herbaceous borders. Many of the box balls and cones are integrated into the herbaceous borders. The garden has a large, old established yew that is regular trimmed to maintain a mushroom shape with a tight finish.
Regularly trim, shape and maintain a selection of yew and box topiary in a large Regency townhouse garden. Maintain box hedging including an interesting snaking design dividing a herbaceous border.
