Emma Joy, Gardens of Joy
"beautiful gardens don't cost the earth"
A bicycle-driven, hand-powered, garden maintenance and organic kitchen garden service that is better for you and your garden. What I have found is that by working with people to meet their individual needs I can help anyone to have a garden to enjoy and a deliciously nutritious vegetables to eat - not matter how much space or time you have available.
Gardens of Joy is based in Melksham in the county of Wiltshire, and extends out to the villages of Atworth, Beanacre, Berryfield, Bowerhill, Broughton Gifford, Lacock, Shaw and Whitley.
Gardens of Joy does not use petrol or electrically powered gardens tools, which means that when you pay for a gardening service you are paying for the gardener. You are not paying for vehicle insurance, servicing of power tools and risings costs of diesel, petrol and electricity.
Power tools such as hedge trimmers and strimmers will often "rip" rather than "cut" grass and plants. By making a cleaner cut, hand tools reduce the risk of infection for the plant, and gives you a high quality finish.
Using a service that travels by bicycle and uses local products means that you are supporting the local economy and reducing your impact on the environment.
The suite of plans from Gardens of Joy offer you a flexible way to help you to have and enjoy the beautiful garden and fresh, organic fruit and vegetables that you deserve.
