So, why Gnome and Garden?

I worked for Harpenden Town Council as the maintenance officer for 5 years (until 2016) in the idyllic setting of Harpenden Common.

This background has ensured a highly professional work ethic and a great deal of experience in the practical nature of grounds maintenance and tree care. This combined with a general love of the great outdoors makes for a winning combination.

We like to feel that trust, reliability and delivering a high quality of service are paramount on what we offer our customers.

Please note that we are also covered by £5 million public liability insurance.
