Below are just a few examples of what we are doing for our clients.
- Mrs Appleyard, who is in her 70s and lives in Dulwich, has reached the stage where she can no longer look after her garden.
- Mark and Fiona Wells recently moved into a house in Upper Norwood that had been empty for some time.
- Elderwood Residents' Association has engaged Polly’s Perennials to maintain the communal gardens of Elderwood Place, a charming Grade II listed building.
However, Polly’s Perennials is ensuring that she can still enjoy her pleasant little garden. We visit her once a week and spend two to three hours cutting her lawn, trimming the hedges, weeding the flower beds and tending her hanging baskets.
As a result, both front and back gardens were a bit of a mess, as neither had been tended while the house was empty. As Fiona and Mark lead very busy lives they gave Polly’s Perennials carte blanche to revive front and back gardens.
It was a fairly routine job to deal with the front garden as it only needed some general tidying up and pruning and trimming of flowers and shrubs.
However, the back garden needed much more attention and we have redesigned it to suit Fiona and Mark’s circumstances.
Much of it is now taken up with a lawn and easily maintained flowers and shrubs - but we have developed our Gift of the Good Life concept to generate a substantial vegetable patch at the top of the garden.
Going forward, we are tending the vegetable patch on a regular basis as well as providing general maintenance for the rest of their garden.
Elderwood Place is a private gated development of houses and flats opposite Norwood Park with a wide variety of trees, bushes, shrubs and flowers filling its extensive gardens.
Polly’s Perennials has recently taken on the responsibility for the maintenance and upkeep of these gardens and has started the process by planting trees to restore the tree-lined frontage of Elderwood Place.
