Phil’s garden philosophy is quite simple; your garden should be a place you can enjoy. It should be a place of calm and beauty. Our job is to ensure you can enjoy the benefits of your garden without the associated hard work of creating and maintaining it.
Our expertise and technical ability will bring your vision to life.
Phil has a degree in History and is a qualified teacher. He spent many years as a learning specialist at the National Archives and Imperial War Museum, then working with excluded pupils in a local pupil referral unit, before re-training to follow his real passion – Gardening!
Phil is qualified in RHS Practical Horticulture level 2 and has a wealth of experience in woodworking and soft landscaping – in particular using recycled and reclaimed materials.
“Phil is an excellent gardener and a thoroughly decent chap. He is so knowledgable, with a clear love of horticulture. Pruning was done with care and attention for each individual plant. He is a pleasure to be around and his infectious enthusiasm for his profession shines through. We won't hesitate to ask Phil to help us again in the future.”

“I now find gardening very difficult and Phil was sensitive to how I needed the garden to be. He worked so hard and I am very pleased with the result.”
M. O'Leary, Margate, Kent
“Phil took our little patch of scrubby back yard and turned it into the most charming walled garden. The planting is sensitively arranged to suit the space and is, at the same time pretty and practical (for my very limited gardening maintenance skills). It has been much admired!”
