Its all about working with you on making the right choices on which plant grows best in each aspect resulting in you having a complimentary planting scheme of seasonal interest and a blend of textures, form and colour that thrive in having the best position to produce the best results.
We thought it would be best to pick out a variety of images to showcase some of the work we have produced for many of our very happy clients.
When taking any work on, our aim is to produce work of a high standard and to exceed our client’s expectations. With our maintenance service it’s all about progressively enhancing the garden through not only maintaining what is there, but suggesting and implementing fresh changes to add some value over time.
You may hear us talk about bee/insect attracting plant choices…this is of particular interest for us, as we are passionate about making a positive difference to the bio-diversity of a garden and in particular, supporting the increase in bee populations.
I cannot recommend Mark more highly. His thoughtfulness and extensive knowledge are apparent in everything he does. Our fledgling garden is developing beautifully under his care. Mark even took the time to plant some fruit and vegetables with our young children, which they loved! Mark is a real find, and we are delighted to be working with him.
I’ve been highly impressed with the work that Mark has done in tackling an overgrown garden. He’s very passionate about gardening and clearly has a deep technical knowledge and expertise. It’s been great to chat with him about ideas and I’m looking forward to working with him to shape the garden into something special. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mark for any gardening project.
The Avid Gardner aka 'The Rose Expert' as I call him, is a man for all seasons. Having helped me prune down my roses and suggested they lacked nutrition, he took care of everything and I just sat back and watched the best years growth with a mass of multiple headed blooms. I engaged Mark to assist and suggest plants for my Woodland Area and he came up with a planting plan and price list very quickly. We co-ordinated budgets and he sourced all the plants and planted them. I've already recommended him to one neighbour and I know they will be using his expertise very soon. I look forward to working on many future projects with him and making my garden even more spectacular.
Mark is an exceptional gardener who has transformed my garden in the last two years. He is knowledgeable, resourceful and very good at his job. I unreservedly recommend him and the work he does. No better gardener in my opinion.
Mark is a more than a gardener. He has a genuine passion for and deep knowledge and understanding of plants and trees. He is able to advise about horticulture, garden design as well as providing general garden maintenance. He is very reliable and trustworthy. I am particularity grateful to him for helping me to keep my 90 year plus cherry tree alive a little longer! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him - he's great.
We could not have been more impressed or delighted by the service we received from Mark at The Avid Gardener. It was evident from the start that Mark brought vast knowledge, experience and gardening expertise to the job. He was such a pleasure to deal with and it has been so beneficial to have him continue to look after the garden since it was created. Mark is so accommodating and a pleasure to work with.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Mark to anyone looking for a landscape gardener. He is completely professional and obviously loves what he does. He has a great breadth of knowledge and is full of ideas and advice. He took on board completely the look I was after and the finished article could not be better. My garden is a beautiful sea of colour. I couldn’t be happier and can’t wait to see the changes it will bring throughout the seasons.
