Leaf It To Me was originally started in Canterbury in 2005 and operated in that area, working with residential and commercial clients such as Charter Trucks, Sorted Logistics and Addington Court Motel throughout Christchurch and the surrounding areas. We are enjoying the lush Southland climate and little need for irrigation, plus the friendly people.
Leaf It To Me specialises in maintaining gardens and surrounding areas in excellent condition, whether you prefer the more high-maintenance formal style or the laid-back cottage garden. Commercial premises and their features such as shop front gardens, driveways and entrances always look better when kept tidy.
Since relocating to Southland, Leaf It to Me is maintaining some dairy farm home gardens, and lawns and gardens in Invercargill and surrounding areas. Bruce has also been involved with some weed spraying work, and waterway native plantings at Waituna alongside Chris Mangion from C.P.M Environmental.
With an extensive silvicultural background in forestry and nursery work, Bruce also has forestry, forest technician and mapping skills.
Leaf It To Me Gardening may be new to Southland, but we are certainly not new to taking care of gardens of all shapes and sizes. We have been in the gardening business for over 10 years, so we certainly know what we’re doing.
So how can Leaf It To Me Gardening help you? Well, if it needs to be done in the garden, we can handle it: lawn mowing, weeding, hedge trimming, new garden design, pruning… even shelter belt establishment. We operate throughout the Southland and Invercargill area, offering our gardening and lawn care services to commercial and residential customers.
Right now, we’re all waiting for the first signs of spring. What with all the mud from the very wet winter, it’s not the best time right now to mow lawns (not that the grass is growing much at this stage) but it is a good time to start thinking about the new gardening year ahead. Possibly, you’ve taken the chance to go outside with the slightly longer days and slightly better weather we’ve been having lately and you’ve seen how shabby the garden has got over winter. Or else you might have decided that this is the year to really get started with a vegetable garden. Right now, it’s time to prepare new garden beds and deciding what flowers you’d like to establish in your garden. It’s definitely time to do a good clean-up so everything’s ready for the new season.
If you want a hand in your garden, whether it’s new or old, get in touch with us at mcfoster.leafittome@gmail at any time! Or ring Bruce on 021 2111 787.
