I can help you with these jobs but feel free to call and ask:

Fencing works:
I can carry out a range of services here from simple repair work on fence posts (either replacement posts or spur posts fitted) through to a complete replacement of your garden fence. 

The most common type of fencing for this project would be timber panels fitted to either wood or concrete posts. Other options could include traditional Closeboard fencing made up with posts, Arris rails and feather edge. 

Chain Link fencing comes in many different heights  and finishes and is often the cheapest option for securing long boundaries, for example if you have over 50 meters and need to keep your dog in! There are other options offering varying degrees of security and functionality. 

Post and rail fencing is ideally suited for paddocks. Picket fencing is ideal for front gardens and offers a traditional appearance to some properties.

Welded mesh fencing and steel palisade are usually installed on commercial premises when higher security is required.

Hard Landscaping and Ground work Services:
Hard landscaping generally refers to the installation of decorative woodwork, trellising, pergolas, slab laying, block paving, retaining walls etc. Ground work would cover some of these but also includes drainage works and other building services.  

Garden Maintenance:
Garden Maintenance tends to be on-going work and I can offer a flexible approach to this. Some of my existing customers want to see me for 2 hours a week, some monthly; others will call when it suits them or their garden needs my help.  Generally speaking this work is straightforward grass cutting, edging borders and tidying up as per customer requirements. 

I also carry out hedge cutting and conifer trimming works as well as simple tree services. I am not a qualified tree surgeon or Arborist. Major works would require professional services (Qualified and insured) I can recommend a good contractor for this work.

Household Maintenance & Home Improvements:

It’s a fact that you need to keep up with household maintenance or things will wear out and break down sooner, sometimes causing other problems and incurring more cost. Some of these tasks are an annual job, for example making sure your drains are free of obstruction, painting your fence, cleaning patio furniture, washing your patio and refurbishing block paving. 

Other tasks could be the relaying of some uneven paving slabs to prevent a trip hazard, maybe improving access by having a ramp installed or step built.

I am always happy to chat with you and discuss your requirements.  Please call or e-mail.
