Landscape maintenance


We provide landscape maintenance services tailored to meet your precise requirements. Maintenance work can be arranged as an irregular one-off event or on a regular contract basis and can be applied to areas originally planted by ourselves or by others.

At Specimen Tree Landscapes  we are well versed in all aspects of landscape, grounds and estate management and will respond reliably to attend both established and newly created projects.

Our dedicated team is experienced in all aspects of landscape maintenance and are supported by the latest equipment.

We aim to work in partnership with our clients, offering a cost effective service that matches their requirements and enhances their landscape.
