Garden Services North Devon

Our services include a total package of care & maintenance for your lawn.

With a regular program of lawn mowing, seasonal feeding, scarifying and over seeding we take care of the health and appearance of your lawn to create a welcoming space for both pleasure and leisure.

We also maintain meadow environments for wild flowers and wildlife with strimming and long grass cutting at the correct times of the year.

Hedges perform an important part of your garden from wind protection, noise reduction, security and marking boundaries whilst providing a safe haven for all forms of wild life. With regular cutting and hedge trimming these will become thicker and bushier to create these environments. We can also lay traditional Devon hedges for a more natural and informal look.

By using our planting services we create the correct soil and growing conditions for your plants to flourish, whilst using our experience as growers and gardeners to ensure that you plant "The correct plant in the correct place" create outstanding results.

The art and skill of correctly pruning plants and trees to establish and maintain their health shape and appearance is part of the service we offer from our experience gained over 30 years.

Keeping down weed growth is essential for the health of your plants and the overall appearance of the garden. We use as many natural methods as possible to control weeds from simple digging & hoeing to mulching with natural products and materials, but for those more stubborn areas and weeds we offer a full spraying service using the latest professional products available.

Gardeners Delight Gardening Services

Nick started working as a gardener at weekends whilst at school. In 1983 he started GARDENERS DELIGHT services, he married Hannah in 1988, a florist, who started to grow some of the plants Nick required for his local garden services in their back garden, with the excess sold in the local Barnstaple pannier market. As the demand for their quality plants grew, they purchased 5 acres of farm land in Barnstaple, which became Gardeners Delight Nursery.
This has grown to be a leading local family run nursery in North Devon which produces an extensive range of herbaceous perennials, bedding and vegetable plants, trees, shrubs, roses and clematis along with delicious fresh fruit and vegetables. 90% of these are grown on site using the skill and experience gained over 30 years of growing for the local coastal & moorland environment.
The nursery is open daily(see opening times) they also attend local farmers markets in Barnstaple, Exeter, Crediton and Bude to sell their plants, fruit and vegetables as well as specialist plant shows across the South West of England where Nick and his daughter have gained awards for their perennial garden displays.
Nicks gardening experience & design skills along with Hannah's eye for colour and detail have helped local councils, caravan parks, hotels and other local businesses win gold, national and international awards from Britain in Bloom with stunning flower displays.
With his family and crazy spaniel Poppy running the nursery Nick uses his passion and knowledge of plants and gardening to maintain, design and transform gardens locally and across North Devon for private and commercial clients.
