About Marian Cronin - Professional Garden Maintenance In London

Hello, I am Marian and I am a professional maintenance gardener with a Royal Horticultural Society Level 2 qualification. I'm passionate about keeping gardens 'in balance' and for transforming neglected green space into an environment people can enjoy. I have ten years of experience gardening in and around London, working with different gardening firms and for my own clients on a variety of sites. I have outlined my approach to the job below, but please have a look at my website for more information about me. Consultation I will always respond to messages promptly and we can have a chat about your hopes and ideas for your garden. Normally on the first visit we can have a walk through the garden together and discuss things in more detail and make a plan of action. Then if you are happy with how things are being managed it isn’t necessary for you to be in every time I visit, unless of course you want to be! The job I travel to jobs in London by foot and public transport. I bring my tool kit, which I describe in more detail below. This takes care of any basic pruning, training, weeding, raking, and sweeping. I can bring certain tools, e.g. a hedgecutter, if we have arranged to do specific jobs. If you are interested in adding mulch or plants to your garden we can usually devise some way of doing this. Garden waste will be disposed of through your council collection or in your compost bin. My tool kit I use a Wolf-Garten tool kit, which is a brilliantly designed set of tool heads that fit on to the same handle. This means I can bring a wide selection of tools to the job neatly stored in a bag, along with hand tools and any other extras like my Bosch battery-powered hedgecutter or strimmer. I can bring things like a fork, spade or half-moon edger when required. Prices Monday to Friday – £20 per hour Monday to Friday – A full day, 8-4 including an hour of breaks, is £120 Weekends and Bank Holidays – £25 per hour Weekends and Bank Holidays – A full day, 8-4 including an hour of breaks, is £150 I am based in North-West London. Minimum two hours per visit. I can do jobs that seem geographically far away if the travel connections are good and there is enough work to cover the cost (e.g. I maintain a garden in Lee, South-East London because there is a day’s work per visit).

Mary J.'s review on Feb 28, 2018

Marian came to work in our largish garden in June 2017. Our garden was very overgrown. My husband and I had given up and had ignored it for years as we really didn’t know very much about plants or gardening apart from cutting the grass. Eight months on and we can’t stop grinning every time we catch a glimpse of the garden. Marian has, in her quiet way, gone about the task of transforming our garden with skill, knowledge born of experience and determination. We are taking a pride in our garden and cannot wait for the spring growth. The amazing thing about Marian is that she doesn’t push any ideas, just gently offers suggestions and is happy with whatever you decide. You will inevitably decide to go with her suggestions because you know they will work in your garden. Marian listens to people and gears her work to accommodate her clients wishes so they get the look and feel that they want. For instance, we have a lot of trees and we wanted to retain a woodland type semi-wild appearance in one part of the garden and she dealt with the area very sensitively. She is a wonderful person. I don’t want to embarrass her, but her honesty, humanity, skill and hard work are exemplary. A fantastic gardener - we wouldn’t be without her!

Sapna G.'s review on Apr 05, 2017

Marian helped me tidy up my front lawn by edging, increasing my borders and clearing up a patch which was filled with stones and weeds. She is a hard worker , gets on with with what you would like. She is very knowledgeable about plants and sources - def helpful post services as well. I cannot recommend her enough . Her price is very reasonable as well. I will definitely be using her again. A superb find . Thank you 😊

Francesca U.'s review on Mar 18, 2017

Marion is a delightful person, I have worked with her for quite a few years. She really knows her stuff and I trust her compleatly. She always arrives on time and cleans up after her and leaves the gardens looking wonderful. She looks after our private garden and 2 others for me . She offers good advice and will maintain the gardens if asked, as I have done and will continue to do. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Annie S.'s review on Mar 13, 2017

I am very pleased indeed with the job Marian has done in my garden. She started by re-shaping the edge of the border, making it making it flow within the overall structure of the garden. She moved shrubs and perenials, all of which are now looking much happier. She also turns out to be very good at pruning and creates a healthier and happier shape to the shrubs. She is good to work with and gets on with the job with no fuss and she leaves everything looking clean, tidy and well cared for. I will definitely use her again.

Lauren T.'s review on Mar 13, 2017

Marian has shown to be an accomplished Gardener with many years of practical experience ranging from residential back gardens to private estate work working with myself. She is an enthusiastic plants person who always takes pride in her work and works to a high standard. I would trust her to do all types of tasks such as planting, pruning, feeding, weeding, mulching to a high detail.
