Benita took on a neglected garden, with beds covered in weeds or weed control material, and two lawns needing a lot of restoring. What a transformation! Six existing raised beds have been turned into low maintenance creations containing a wonderful variety of plants to give a wonderful display year round. Her knowledge is considerable and layout planning, a real talent. Benita and her gardening assistant are extremely hard working and keen to satisfy their customer requirements. My wife and I are delighted with the results and looking forward to seeing the effects as the plants really establish themselves.
We have no hesitation in recommending Benita’s Garden Services.
An old hedge between two neighbouring drives had been removed leaving a long strip of stony ground. I hadn’t a clue what to do with it so got in touch with Benita’s Garden Services to ask for help.
I wanted something low maintenance and to avoid replacing the old hedge with a new one. Benita suggested a mixture of evergreens and ground cover plants to add different heights, textures and colour variation.
I’m really pleased with how it’s turned out, Benita’s choice of plants work together beautifully.
I would definitely recommend her.

The rockery, originally created nearly 40 years ago with shrubs, had become a bit of an eye sore, and needed complete restoration and replanting. I got in touch with Benita’s garden landscaping services who suggested that it would be a good idea to remove the existing shrubs, and replant with a mix of new shrubs, alpines, succulents, perennials and bulbs set on gravel which would bring colour, and new interest to the rockery. A year on and the rockery is looking very colourful indeed. I am very pleased at the results, and would have no hesitation in recommending Benita’s garden landscaping services.

Initially I contacted Benita’s garden services in the autumn last year as I was interested in getting my garden tidied before we moved to our present house.
Both my husband and I were pleased with the work that was carried out and so contacted Benita again for further help and ideas for our new garden.
Between us we decided that the clearing of a huge rhododendron, willow tree, and scrappy hedge was the way forward, creating an open space, and letting more light into the garden. These areas have now been planned and replanted with a mix of shrubs and perennials, and we are very pleased with the creative design and choice of plants.
Thank you for all your hard work and ideas Benita, we really appreciate what you have done.
Thank you for turning my wilderness into a wonderful garden, including the choice of the plants and shrubs. I will now be able to manage and maintain my garden, and most of all enjoy it, so I can’t thank you enough.
Best wishes, Kate Hanney
I asked Benita to help me create an old English cottage garden. I am now enjoying a beautiful thriving sunny border of old favourites . Benita’s love, knowledge and respect of the landscape and natureshone throughout the project and she involved me in all steps of the process. I would highly recommend Benita’s garden services.
We had a general idea of how our front garden should look in two or three years, but no experience of how to achieve it. Benita was very quick in picking up what our long term aim for the garden appearance was to be, and agreed that our low maintenance preference could be achieved with new planting, and the retention of established shrubs. Her interpretation was spot on, and with regular conversations with us about choices of plants/shrubs for colour/texture and flowering, and the suggested positioning of them, she has achieved a delightful looking garden that we are confident will quickly mature into a pleasing and manageable space. We have no hesitations in recommending Benita’s Garden Services.
