Porcelain Paving Transforms Guernsey Garden

Porcelain paving has been transforming gardens and outdoor spaces in Guernsey for a long time and the team at Bernie’s Gardening Services have had the privilege of being a major part of some of these transformations.

The paving is always a stunning addition to any garden and can be the basis for your outdoor dining throughout the spring and summer months.

We offer a wide variety of the paving to our customers ensuring all the gardens we revamp are unique and complement your home.

The various styles available ensure that whatever look you crave – be that modern or traditional – there will be a tile suitable. For those that aren’t green fingered, quality patios and paving can make a real difference to a garden without the need to keep on top of weeding and pruning.

Bernie’s Gardening Services recently designed and carried out work using porcelain paving for a client in Guernsey and took photographs every step of the way. Take a look at the images below to see for yourself how much of a difference it makes.

Of the work we carried out, the homeowner Sue commented: “Huge thanks to Bernie and his boys, they all worked so hard in transforming our garden and most days in the pouring rain, never complaining or wandering off, always here on time, with a smile. Thanks again for our now amazing garden!”

Sue’s husband Adrian also commented: “Bernie did want to put some greenery and plants in planters for us but we are not good with plants and wanted something low maintenance…”

Is your paving ready for winter?

In our homes, we all know that when the days start to get slightly warmer, then we all look to getting our homes in order with a good spring clean. But have you ever thought about getting your paving ready for winter? By preparing it for the winter months, you could help 

avoid any injuries from ice and be more organised when the spring months come along! Here are a few handy hints from Bernie’s Gardening Services to help you prepare your paving for the cold weather…

  1. Paving winter ready Garden maintenance and patios Bernie's Gardening Services garden designer GuernseyFirstly, remove all your pot plants and garden furniture – storing them safely away in a shed or garage will not only help keep them safe from the elements, but will also give you a blank canvas for getting the ground cleaned up and ready for winter;
  2. Remove any weeds and moss in your paving – this will not only help reduce any damage freezing weather may have on your paving but also when wet, they can become very slippery so removing them will help avoid any nasty accidents;
  3. Sweep up any debris and leaves etc left on the ground;
  4. Jet wash your paving or use a paving cleaner to remove any dirt and marks – you’d be amazed at the difference this makes! 
  5. Replace any sand or mortar that may have been removed during the washing process.

 

By following these handy tips, we hope you will find getting your garden back to its summer best will be much easier and less time-consuming! 

If you would like any help and advice with upgrading your paving and patios in Guernsey, contact the Bernie’s Gardening Services team today and we will happily give you a free quote! 

Keep you eyes peeled for more handy hints and tips for keeping your gardens, patios and paving in top condition for the changing seasons.

Fake grass laid in Guernsey

The Bernie’s Gardening Services team have recently completed a couple of jobs of laying fake grass.

The first one was laid and we then fitted a picket fence around the back of the lounge sliding door so that the young couple have a worry-free environment to let their two young children play in.

Our second one was a small area near town, where, together with the customers, we made helped create an outdoor space which can be enjoyed day and night.

The customer was thrilled with the work we completed, commenting: “Thanks again for transforming our back garden. The photos don’t do it justice! The guys worked so hard. Would highly recommend Bernie and his team!”

Our team are on hand to answer any questions your may have about installing artificial grass in your garden – contact us today!

If you would like to know more about the gardening services we offer around Guernsey, take a look at our Gardening Services page.

Take a look at the video below of some of the work before/during and after! We’re sure you will agree that both gardens look fabulous!

Decking transforms Guernsey garden!

For the team at Bernie’s Gardening Services, one of the biggest challenges this year was to remove a suspended decking. It was in very bad condition so it was important for it to be removed and replaced.

During the process, the team had to remove a huge tree stump with no access to hi-ab, as well as cart several tons of soil and stone, raise several walls around the boundaries, lay a reinforced concrete base, proceed to lay silver grey granite slabs and to top it off, a Mediterranean-style wood BBQ which really complemented the finished garden, we’re sure you will agree!

Take a look at the befoe and after images below and you will see what a big job it was and how amazing the client’s garden now looks. Who wouldn’t want outdoor space like that?

The customer was thrilled with the work we completed, commenting: “I could not be happier with what Bernie and his team have done. Great work…great team. I will recommend these guys to anyone who wants a job done well. Thank you” We’re glad you’re so happy with it! You can read what more of our customers have to say on our testimonials page.

As a team, we are experienced in landscape design, design bespke patios, tree services and landscaping – skills which all came in throughout the job!

If you want to see your garden transformed, contact our team today!

Here is what the garden in Guernsey looked like before the work commenced…

Here are just a few photos of the work we carried out – as you can see, it was a big job!

5 Tips For Garden Maintenance

Garden maintenance is perfect for this time of year. Summer is approaching! Is your garden looking horrible and messy? Contact Bernie’s Gardening Services and get started with your garden maintenance for the season! In the meantime, here are 5 things your garden will need if you haven’t maintained it in a while.

  1. Make a Composting Area – If you haven’t already done this, you should! now is a great time to do so! A composting area allows you to dispose of all your organic waste, once it has broken down, use it for your plants. Ensure to have a mix of grass, vegetable peelings, paper and small bits of wood i.e twigs and small branches.

2. Get a Water Butt – This is to collect rainwater all year round. Collecting rainwater is a way to be environmentally friendly when your garden needs watering during these hot and sunny days approaching. Also this is the best type of water to use on your plants because tap water is slightly alkaline. Place the water butt underneath a down-pipe.

3. Remove Garden Pests – Check your plants for any slugs, snails and ant colonies. Also, make sure last years pots are cleared and look for any white-vine weevil larvae which live in compost and feed on the roots of your plants. You can buy treatment for this type of pest, click here.

4. Tidy up Flower Beds – Remove any leaves, twigs and other debris. Also cut the old growth, clear the borders until the soil is clear from debris, put all the dead growth into a compost bin (if you have one) or just make a pile. Remove weeds and either throw them in your brown bin or burn them; do not put these in your compost pit as the seeds will sprout, this will cause you extra garden maintenance!

5.  Buy summer flowering bulbs and seeds – Flowers like lilies and gladioli is great for planting during the early-spring, but its still not too late! Make your garden colourful and full of life ready for the summer!

Why you need a new garden fence today!

When you’re investing in a new garden fence or a wall for your garden, there can be many things to consider to ensure you get the most from your money and end up with a fence that can really complement your garden and make the most of the space you have.

Read our top reasons why you should think about having a fence installed in your garden:

Security – A major reason to consider a new fence, but not necessarily your first thought when you are choosing what type to go with. We can advise on what fences would deter people from climbing over and entering your garden. Just having one fitted means your garden will be less open and protect items in your garden.

Privacy – you may get on really well with your neighbours and enjoy chatting to them over a BBQ in the summer months, but we’re sure there are times when you just want it to be your family. A fence can give you that privacy whilst complementing both gardens and without compromising your relationship with your neighbours.

Improving the look of your garden – perhaps the main one we all think about. New garden fencing can improve your Jersey home massively and with so many options to choose from, we can guarantee you will be able to find one which will suit the style of your home and garden.

A good fence can also help divide up your garden as well as protect some of your plants and vegetables from the elements!

A new garden fence can make a huge difference to your garden so contact us today to get a free quote and hear about all the options available to you!
