PLEASE NOTE – in January 2022 Balanis made the decision to stop taking on new Garden Maintenance clients. We still work with a handful of legacy customers but we do not have the capacity for any new clients. If your garden needs a thorough makeover BEFORE you undertake a contract with a Garden Maintenance company – we can help. In summary – if it’s Garden Design, Garden Rejuvenation and/or Specialist Topiary services – we can help. If it’s regular Garden Maintenance – sorry – we cannot be of assistance.

Having lived in Norfolk since 2000, the team at Balanis understand how hard it can be to find a reliable gardener. The business focus of Balanis is Garden Design – however – we do have limited availability for garden maintenance within North Norfolk (Thornham, Brancaster & surrounding area). We understand that Garden Maintenance is something that needs to be done regularly and reliably.

If you think you’re garden needs a little bit more than some TLC then please consider Louise for a full on Garden Design or just a colour injection / garden makeover

Reliable Garden Maintenance

Unfortunately, all too often, we are called in after someone has had a bad experience with a “gardener”. Sadly, there are plenty of teams out there that HACK, MOW, CHOP and LEAVE – without any consideration to the season or plants. Not Balanis – we undertake the necessary work at the correct time of the year to ensure optimal bloomage and plant health. Please visit our Garden Projects Gallery for some recent examples of Garden Design work undertaken by Louise around the North Norfolk coast.

Pricing – monthly flat rate

One of the reasons we keep our garden maintenance clients for so long is because we understand how important regular garden maintenance is. We will schedule the work around the plants and the seasons. Our normal methodology for pricing is to calculate an ANNUAL workload and divide it out over 12 months. It might be that we need 12 hours a month in the spring, summer and autumn but only 6 hours for winter pruning. (8 months x 12 hours) + (4 months x 6 hours) = 120 hours per ANNUM. We would ask our client to establish a standing order for 10 hours per month.

Want to do it yourself – DIY Garden tips from a Norfolk Gardener

One of Louise’s greatest passions is passing her knowledge on to her customers (if they have an interest that is). Louise loves to spread her understanding of Norfolk’s plants, what grows well where and when to do what to it to each and everybody she meets. That why we have set up this section of the website – What to Do in the Garden this Month – a month by month task list of what you should be tackling in the garden this month.
