Gardens naturally evolve over time either improving or becoming an overgrown mess. Maintenance implies holding a certain level over the years. We aim to be part of the beneficial garden evolution process where year on year improvement is evident.

Be assured, City Escapes gardeners are all CRB checked, uniformed and first aid qualified - let alone capable; and the same Team will visit in accordance to an agreed schedule of visits.
