We have all the tools and expertise to tidy up any garden space. We can remove all the waste to be recycled. We can fell trees, grind stumps, remove rubbish and level ground. Just get in touch with your requirements.

Pruning

Pruning removes dead, diseased or broken limbs or to reduce plant size. It is also possible to thin out a canopy to let more light through. We can prune any hedge or shrub no matter how tall, wide, old or gnarly!

We safely ascend trees and shrubs, with harnesses and ropes where necessary. Careful pruning is beneficial to optimise health. We use chainsaws, hedge trimmers, loppers and secateurs and sometimes spirit levels to obtain the perfect result every time.

We can also do complete removals of overgrown hedges, and plant new ones. We do a lot of this kind of work!

Repairing A Partially Brown Leylandii Hedge

We can reduce the height and width of even well overgrown Leylandii, or repair a badly damaged one with extensive die back. First we remove the dead or unwanted material, then we train longer branches over bare patches and prune carefully over one to three years.

Lawns

Whether your grass is 3 feet tall or your croquet lawn needs manicured to 6mm we can handle it. We can repair a mossy or patchy lawn, install fresh turf, seed grass and plant wildflower meadows.  Artificial grass is another service we provide.

Lawns can be repaired using a variety of treatments. Scarification involves raking to remove weeds and moss, also removing dead grass to prevent patching. We can apply fertiliser and moss inhibitors and also have selective herbicides that won’t kill grass but will kill invasive broad-leaved plants like plantain and daisies. Another tonic for lawn health is top dressing, a compost and fertiliser mix, which is a routine treatment to nourish any lawn.

 

Drainage

Lawns can frequently suffer from poor drainage in wet weather. This can often be caused by a very clay rich soil. This can be partially alleviated by aeration using a garden fork. Hollow-tine aeration is another technique, which involves removal of small soil cores with a machine and brushing in sharp sand to create space for water to lie below the surface.

We can also install drainage systems. Ditches can be created containing flexible perforated plastic piping surrounded by pea gravel and wrapped in membrane which is then covered in turf. This system will remove large quantities of water from problem areas to a central drainage point. A field drain is a large sump dug into a water-logged area which allows temporary flood water to be redirected.

Customer Feedback

A great day’s work from Edinburgh Gardeners, cutting back and reshaping overgrown trees in our garden. The guys did an excellent job and tidied everything up at the end so my garden now looks much readier for spring!
