Plants are a major feature of most gardens and can perform whatever task it is that you require. That may be a low maintenance border, a riot of colour in the summer or something captivating and eye catching in the winter months. We will supply a CAD design, plant list and costings. Whatever your requirements we can re-design and replant to your request.
Regular Garden Maintenance
James' Gardens offer a regular garden maintenance service which can be tailored to your specific needs. After carrying out a site visit we can suggest the level of service you require along with costings. Payments are split into twelve equal monthly payments. Please contact us to arrange a consultation.
Japanese Knotweed was introduced to Britian in 1825 as an ornamental plant. Soon after its introduction it became established in the wild and is now very widely distributed.
It is a vigorous perenial plant and spreads laterally by the extension of its rhizome (underground stem). If left untreated the rhizome can expose weaknesses in asphalt or concrete and cause structural damage to buildings.
Our service is provided by a surveyor qualified through the national trade body, The Property Care Association. You can be assured that our service is in line with all current legislation and codes of practice. We also hold all relevant pesticide application NPTC certificates PA1 and PA6.
If you suspect you have an infestation of Japanese Knotweed but are unsure please call to discuss or send in a photo.
Once Japanese Knotweed has been confirmed you can book a free site inspection. Our surveyor will visit your site to carry out a survey.
When we have carried out a site inspection we will provide you with a full survey recommending a program of treatment and clear details of all costs.
Herbicide treatments are typically five years. This includes three years of herbicide treatment and two years of no re-growth.
Plant Health Management
If you have plants that are not performing correctly, maybe they are not fruiting or flowering as you would like then please get in touch. We can suggest changes to get the most out of your plants and ensure they make the biggest impact in your garden.
Gardens are full of many types of trees, shrubs and climbing plants that all have different pruning requirements. We can ensure that all your plants are pruned correctly to get the best fruit from your fruit trees and flowers from your shrubs.
Acessing Soil Conditions
Knowing your soil is very important as it will dictate the type of plants that you are able to grow successfully. If you feel your soil needs improving but are unsure of how to go about it, then please get in touch to arrange a site visit to discuss options.
Hedge Cutting & Re-shaping
We can cut your hedges to give you that perfect crisp shape that will act as a backdrop to your beds and borders. Maybe you hedges are too tall and need to be reduced in height or maybe too thin and require extra planting to thicken them up. You might be thinking of a completely new hedge and need some advice on what species to plant. All of these problems can be solved us, please call for a quote.
We offer a herbicide spraying service to keep your paved and gravel areas weed free for the growing season. Qualified through the City and Guilds NPTC PA1/PA6 Pesticide Application course, we offer a service you can trust.
Once we have visited your site, a treatment schedule can be drawn up to suit the specific requirements of your site. Treatment plans will use systemic, non residual, industry recognised chemicals in line with current codes of practice.
