A few words from recent customers of TW1 Gardening …
‘My garden always looks fantastic!’ GS, Twickenham
Could not recommend Jan and the team more – friendly, knowledgeable and my garden always looks fantastic.
‘Jan and her team are professional, personable and responsive.’ SC, St Margaret’s
The strengths of TW1 Gardening over other gardeners I have used in the past, include the seasonal planning and maintenance advice they provide, the horticultural training of the gardeners and their reliability.
I gain particular benefit from Jan’s proactive scheduling of appointments, her diligence in getting to know me, our garden and how we can work together, as well as her interest in recycling existing plants in our garden helping to minimise costs and waste.
Overall a positive gardening relationship.
‘Everyone in the team is reliable and hardworking.’ DT, Richmond
We contacted Jan 2 years ago and she has been looking after our garden ever since. It was professionally designed by another company but we lack the time and expertise to look after it ourselves. Jan and her team take care of everything in the garden (aside from tree surgery) – feeding, pruning, bulb planting, and they offer creative ideas for filling the gaps in the garden that have arisen as the garden has matured. Everyone in the team is reliable and hardworking. Most importantly for us, they work the whole year round and visit regularly to make sure that we get the best out of our garden.’
Great knowledge and expertise’ PW, Twickenham
Friendly helpful service for help with gardening, great knowledge and expertise.
‘They have transformed my garden’ JH, St Margaret’s
TW1 Gardening comprises a highly qualified and professional team. They have transformed my garden into a lovely space and have done this in a friendly and reliable manner and are always open for discussion/ ideas.
‘I’ve finally found someone who is a proper gardener, who knows their stuff and whom I can trust’ MB, Whitton
I LOVE how TW1 Gardening looks after our garden. I have finally found someone who is a proper gardener who knows their stuff and whom I can trust, unlike some others I’ve had! Keep doing what you are doing. We are delighted to have you, you’re worth every penny. We enjoy having a lovely garden but don’t have the time or knowledge to do it ourselves – so thank goodness for you.
‘They work with real knowledge and expertise, which they are happy to share.’ SD, St Margaret’s
I have been working with Jan and her team for the past 4 years and our garden has been transformed. Professional at all times, they work with real knowledge and expertise, which they are happy to share. So much so, that I have learnt a lot. Jan’s particular skill is organisation. She has a plan, knows the ’story’ and history of all our plants, which means that we plant mindfully, in the right place, lose less and grow more. I can’t recommend her and her team highly enough. PS my husband’s input to this review – ’she has a great sense of humour!’
‘I can’t recommend them highly enough!’ SC, Twickenham
From the first scoping meeting for landscaping our back garden Jan listened to what we were looking for in terms of look and feel, was sensitive to our needs (growing children) and to our budget. We now have beautiful, practical and stylish front and back gardens that we know will evolve over time as our needs change. Jan’s team maintain our spaces for us, ensuring they stay beautiful all year round – can’t recommend them highly enough!
‘The team has been nothing but incredible.’ OB, Twickenham
From the first meeting, we connected with Jan and throughout the whole process, she has been a pleasure to work with. She really helped and challenged us during the design phase, then at every step of the way, the team has been nothing but incredible. They are reliable, friendly and deliver a great service and finish. We love our new garden and working with the team.
‘My front and rear gardens have a new lease of life’ CS, Twickenham
I feel very fortunate to have found Jan and her team of gardeners! They are all very professional, knowledgeable and respectful. Jan is easy to communicate with, establishing my expectations during our initial meeting, and sharing her suggestions and expertise. Jan offered an innovative idea to update a side boundary wall and eighteen months later, my front and rear gardens have had a new lease of life. I have really enjoyed sitting outside during this amazing summer thanks to TW1 Gardening’s hard work.
‘Completely transformed my previously unloved garden’ GB, St Margaret’s
Really pleased with the service that I’ve had from TW1 Gardening over the past 12 months. Jan and the team have completely transformed my previously unloved garden during that period. The advice and project management, as well as the work itself, has been great and as a novice gardener that has been hugely appreciated. Over and above the work the team themselves as individuals have all been a pleasure to deal with. Thoroughly recommended.
‘Professional and a pleasure to work with’ JK, Richmond
After failing over a number of years to control our large unruly garden I decided to call in the professionals. TW1 Gardening was recommended to me and Jan came to my rescue. I can confidently say that she and her team are professional and a pleasure to work with. The garden has been thoroughly rejuvenated using her input and now a year on I am seeing the results of the team’s hard work. My confidence in the first phase of works led me to expand this project to the entire garden. TW1 Gardening arranged for contractors to carry out other improvements such as lighting and decking, and these projects have been completed to an equally high standard.
‘Great at planting schemes’ HR, Teddington
Jan and her team have helped us with our front and back gardens over the last few years. We have always been very pleased with the service. They are very knowledgeable and are great at planning a planting scheme. They have guided us on how to look after our garden and we are now more confident gardeners. Thank you!
‘Helpful and creative with beautiful ideas’ CA, Twickenham
TW1 Gardening was so helpful and creative in re-designing our front garden beds. They have rejuvenated the space with beautiful ideas that incorporated some of the existing plants. I particularly appreciated the follow up tips on how best to maintain the new planting.
‘Rejuvenated my garden’ JH, East Twickenham
Amazing service, very prompt and very polite. They have rejuvenated my garden that was left unloved for 2 years. Thank you so much.
‘Work of the highest standard’ AC, Twickenham
The work that TW1 Gardening did in our garden was of the highest standard and we would have no hesitation in recommending them.
‘Totally transformed my front garden and I love it’ JM, Twickenham
Thank you Jan and your team. Jan really understood what I wanted and her team totally transformed my front garden … and I love it. She also sent me a comprehensive list of how to look after it. Many people have stopped to admire it … what more could I want. Again, thank you so much Jan.
‘Very happy with the service’ JE, Twickenham
I’m very happy with the service I have received from TW1 gardening in the last year. They have a lot of knowledge about plants and have really improved my garden. Kate, the gardener I usually have, works very hard and the result is that my garden is now looking really lovely. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
‘Listened carefully and got my garden totally’ GM, Twickenham
I have so enjoyed having the input from TW1 Gardening. They listened carefully and so ‘got’ my garden totally. This winter instead of feeling guilty every time I went into the garden, I have really enjoyed how it looks. The suggestions they make come from properly qualified horticultural knowledge. I have been having 4 hours a month. They have worked hard and each visit has been value for money. They have also arranged for long outstanding jobs to be done – including trees cut back, decking problems solved and a water feature put in. I’m looking forward to working with them in 2020.
‘Very helpful and hard working team’ Mr QP, Strawberry Hill
Asked Jan to refresh my 19 year old garden helping to teach me how to do it so I can learn. Very helpful and hard working team. I have learnt lots and the garden looks so much better already, even over the winter months.
‘Transformed our garden’ Mr BW, Marble Hill
TW1 Gardening has transformed our garden! They work hard, they are totally reliable, and have just the expertise we were after. And, what’s more, they are all nice people!
‘The process was seamless’ Mr & Mrs N, Strawberry Hill
Jan and her team are inspiring, professional and clearly love garden design, plants and the process. We were looking to start again but keep aspects of the old garden. We were not particularly knowledgeable about garden design and plants and their expertise was valued. We were impressed with the planning phase and the suggestions made certainly helped when we were devoid of ideas. In terms of implementation the process was seamless. Her team arrived when they said they would, worked through our typical inclement weather and enthused always about the plants. Now we have a garden that is giving so much pleasure even in the dreary winter months. We are looking forward to the new spring season when all the planting done last year can be seen again. The after care service is a great support as plants that maybe did not like their new home were discussed and fine tuning suggested. I cannot rate TW1 Gardening highly enough!
‘Garden looks great’ Mrs CK, Strawberry Hill
Thanks for all your hard work – the garden looks great. It’s so rewarding to see the shrubs, blooms and colours throughout the year. We really appreciate the hard work that goes into managing everything in our garden.
‘The difference was remarkable in such a small amount of time’ Mr & Mrs W, Hanwell
My wife and I could not be happier with the work carried out by the team at TW1 Gardening. They worked incredibly hard and we have been enjoying our beautiful garden ever since. We will definitely be using TW1 Gardening in the future and would highly recommend them.
‘Worked wonders on our garden’ JH, St Margaret’s
Jan and her team have worked wonders this past year on our garden which had been a bit neglected owing to our busy lives. It is a real pleasure to look out every day at the fantastic results of their hard work! Many people have commented on how lovely the garden looks and we are looking forward to it getting even better as time goes on. Jan and her team are a real pleasure to deal with – always friendly, helpful and keen to suggest ideas. I would recommend them without reservation.
‘Delighted’ JN, Twickenham
Jan and her team have been working in our garden for a year now. They have done a truly magnificent job in maintaining and improving it. They are knowledgeable, friendly, hard-working and 100% reliable. My wife and I are delighted, and could not recommend TW1 Gardening more highly.
‘Lucky to find Jan and her team’ CS, Twickenham
Between jobs and having a young child we had let our garden go a bit and finally admitted we needed help. How lucky we have been to find Jan and her team! After just a couple of sessions our garden is now a pleasant place to be for the first time in over a year. A year on, and the improvements continue, with Jan advising us on new plants to put in as well as nurturing what was already there. Her expertise and passion really shine through, and the team are knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Highly recommended!
‘A beautiful view out of my window every day’ CS, Twickenham Green
Jan and her team saved my overgrown garden. With little gardening knowledge myself, Jan guided me through some options and described how I could put my stamp on my outdoor space. With over a year’s wild growth Jan and her team brought order and beauty back to my garden, leaving me with a beautiful view out of my window every day. I can’t wait to see what more magic they have up their sleeves for my little space!
‘Great ‘can-do’ attitude along with super gardening skills’ Mrs SC, Hampton
Jan and her gardeners resurrected our garden after two years of neglect by non-gardening tenants. Jan was great and understood our needs and we planned together. The garden is now well on the way to being beautiful again and she even came in under budget! I would always recommend Jan, she has a great ‘can do’ attitude along with super gardening skills.
‘Our new garden is growing beautifully’ Mr & Mrs H, Barnes
We really enjoyed working with Jan on the planting for our newly landscaped garden. Jan took the time to understand exactly what we wanted, provided us with suggestions but didn’t overwhelm us with decisions to make. The planting was exactly what we asked for and the garden is growing beautifully. The whole process was very enjoyable. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jan – thanks again, we love the garden.
‘Five stars’ Mr PB, St Margaret’s
I turned to Jan for help when I was struggling with my garden after I lost my partner – the garden had always been his domain. I’m so glad that I found someone so knowledgeable, sympathetic, friendly and hard working. The sad looking garden has been brought back to life, and I was so delighted with the results that I had to treat it to new garden furniture! Jan’s advice has also been invaluable, and after only her first visit my neighbours were making enquiries about her availability. If there was a ‘garden advisor’ website I’d be giving a five star review.
‘Many positive comments from our clients’ VC, East Twickenham
Jan and her team have been working with us for a couple of years and the improvement in the garden has been fantastic. She has helped us to select suitable plants and shrubs based on our request for colour and cheerfulness, combined with low maintenance. We are a community centre based in East Twickenham and we have received many positive comments from our clients about how much better the garden is looking.
‘Exceeded my expectations’ Mrs CK, Strawberry Hill
I wanted to thank you for all the gardening experience, help and guidance you have given me over the last few months. The impact you have made on my garden, and my confidence, mean that we are well on the way to getting things back to how they should be after years of neglect! The improvements you have made have exceeded my expectations and I look forward to working with you to achieve my dream garden.
‘Tremendous results … an asset to any garden’ Mr JK, St Margaret’s
Jan takes care of planning, planting and trouble-shooting our large communal garden in St Margaret’s. Her approach is knowledgeable and professional when it comes to plants and planting. She also knows how to manage the long-term planning of a large mature garden. We work together with Jan and the team at TW1 Gardening to develop and nurture our garden and we have seen tremendous results from her work. Jan has helped us with everything from small planters to large beds, and plant recommendations to lawn renovation – she is an asset to any garden of any size.
‘Jan brought fresh ideas’ Mr & Mrs V, East Twickenham
Jan has a great combination of plant knowledge, an eye for planting, practical experience and is good at digging too! Our garden has tired planting and Jan brought fresh ideas on how to produce plants, flowers and fruit though the seasons, including planting against a north facing wall and areas of deep shade and dry earth.
‘Made a big impact’ Mrs AK, St Margaret’s
Dear Jan, just a quick note to say how happy we are with the work you did in our garden in preparation for house viewings. Everything looks really neat and tidy and the new flowers you planted made a big impact on the whole garden. We will definitely be using your services again once we’ve moved.
‘Professional, personable and knowledgeable’ Mrs EW, Strawberry Hill
I highly recommend Jan as she is professional, personable and knowledgeable. The work carried out was on time and as quoted, and all to my satisfaction. Jan is reliable and tidy and I am continuing to use her services.
‘I could not ask for more’ TS, Manager, The Palm Centre, Ham
Jan came to work at The Palm Centre while studying for the RHS Certificate in Horticulture.
In addition to her existing in-depth knowledge of plants and sound horticultural practices, Jan quickly grasped the essentials of our business and the wide range of plants we grow and sell. This enthusiastic approach immediately made her popular with our customers and the advice she offered made me feel very confident that they were dealing with an intelligent and experienced member of staff. As a manager within the retail horticulture industry, I could not ask for more.
Our business is centred on plant propagation and sales, and Jan has all the skills we require in our specialist nursery. Her conscientious and friendly manner made her a valuable person to have working here; it’s always a pleasure to see her when she returns to buy plants for her clients!
I would not hesitate to recommend Jan to anyone looking for a professional and capable gardener.
