Garden Buddies - membership

Garden Buddies carries out basic garden maintenance work, including: lawn mowing, hedge cutting, pruning, digging, strimming, garden clearance. We can also install low-maintenance gardens.

Garden Buddies is a membership scheme which provides low-cost gardening services to the people who really need it. Accordingly, snvb reserves the right to refuse membership.

To qualify as a member, garden owners must:

  • be unable to carry out the work themselves, due to age or disability
  • have no-one living with them or within a reasonable distance, who could be expected to help
  • live on a restricted income eg, a means-tested benefit or a basic state pension.
  • reside within South Northamptonshire
