AUTUMN CLEAR UP
At the end of Summer an Autumn Clear Up is very important, like putting the garden to bed for winter. The garden benefits from:-
• a final prune of herbaceous and annual plants
• a general tidy up of all the beds
• a last treatment for the lawn
• a final prune of any shrubs after flowering
• the removal of fallen leaves
• planting Spring bulbs ready for that extra splash of colour after Winter
There is a lot more to garden maintenance that just pulling up a few weeds. We tailor our service to provide you with a year round maintenance programme that each season demands. We provide:-
• mowing of lawns together with edges neatly cut or strimmed.
• replanting and dead heading
• weeding and mulching
• splitting and dividing plants
• control of pests and diseases
• feeding and watering
• pruning and trimming
• advice on planting
LAWN CARE & MOWING
We use the latest in mowing and strimming equipment, so that any type of lawn can be cut with ease, no matter how long the grass or how rough the terrain, to achieve a professional finish.
Lawn feed and weed applications can be applied in Spring and Autumn, helping to reduce unwanted weeds, moss and unsightly patches, leaving the lawn green and lush.
Plants supplied on request

HEALTH & SAFETY
In the modern world of gardening there are many proprietary chemicals in the market place. Where ever possible Forks and Spade are committed to environmentally friendly practices. Inevitably though, some chemical use is necessary to achieve the desired goals. Where ever we use chemicals we will advise you of the risks to humans or pets before we undertake the work so that you can make the necessary arrangement to minimize any risks to your self or other users of the garden.
