Bartholomew’s maintain gardens designed and built by Bartholomew Landscaping, by other contractors, or gardens that have grown organically to their present state. We consider that the same high standards to garden maintenance that we achieve in our design and construction, should be available to everyone.
You can have confidence that we possess the knowledge to advise on all aspects of garden maintenance, improvement, rejuvenation and enhancement.
Knowledge and experience are the backbone of a successful garden maintenance team. At Bartholomew’s, our dedicated training programme supports our employees in achieving their goals, from an RHS certificate to Horticultural Degree. We are proud of the commitment shown by our staff and have close to one hundred years gardening experience within the team.
We practise specialist gardening techniques such as second year pruning, stooling, pollarding and meadow mowing to keep our planting areas perfect. We can prepare detailed maintenance schemes that will enable any landscape to achieve its’ maximum potential.
We are able to increase the productive output of any garden through modern growing techniques, enabling even the smallest gardens to provide flowers, fresh fruit and vegetables.
All our garden waste is environmentally recycled and we strive to be environmentally aware in all that we do.
Private Garden Maintenance
Bartholomew has extensive experience and considerable expertise in all aspects of private garden maintenance. In all private gardens, every visit by the Bartholomew team follows a comprehensive check list that includes the lighting, irrigation and hard landscaping as well as the full range of seasonal horticultural duties.
Private Gardens and Roof Terraces
Terraces, roof gardens and balconies in all areas of London are regularly maintained by Bartholomew’s. In these stressed environments, plants need specialist care, and with our staff either RHS qualified or working towards a qualification, we are experts in this field.
All of these spaces have a dedicated maintenance plan that bears their orientation and microclimate in mind.
Residential Garden Maintenance
London’s Garden Squares are historic features of the city’s landscape and, as such, require sympathetic residential garden maintenance because of the many residents that use the gardens during the day.
The residential garden maintenance team are mindful of the continual use of the grounds and manage the upkeep accordingly to ensure that the residents’ enjoyment is not compromised. The preservation of atmosphere by subtle maintenance is a craft developed over the last 20 years by the staff at Bartholomew and is wonderfully demonstrated in these immaculate landscapes.
Constant consultation by Bartholomew’s with the Management and Garden committees ensures seamless garden care within the scope of the contract.
The maintenance scheme at Coleherne Court was awarded a 2011 BALI award for Garden Maintenance.
