We are extremely pleased with the work carried out to our garden. It has been totally transformed and is now a useable space. The final product has surpassed our expectations. The hard work and quality of workmanship by the team made the design a reality. Fantastic job!

Very professionally done by very pleasant men. They worked very hard to achieve a good result and give me what I wanted which was not easy given the difficult site.

Mayfield Nursery Southampton

Today Solent Mind launched their Emergency Forget Me Not Appeal. Mayfield Nurseries Dementia Gardening Group will close at the end of February unless they are able to raise £10,000. It offers hope to people with dementia and their carers, helping them cope with the realities of living with dementia, and their fears. Through the regular exercise, focus and community the group provides, dramatic improvements have been seen in people’s lives. It is one a handful of specialist groups for people in Southampton with dementia, and is run by volunteers and one expert paid staff member. 

Here’s just one story of how the group has helped:

David was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, a form of Dementia when he was just 52. Debbie, his wife said: “His diagnosis was a big blow to us. The group has been a godsend to us and we haven’t looked back since. If he could go 5 days a week, he would.” With the support of volunteers, David does different things every week, from potting plants up, to making things for sale in the garden centre. Over Christmas he was helped with the support of volunteers to construct a bird table as a gift to his wife. Debbie says: “He always comes home with new stories of things they have done, people he has met, conversations he has had. It’s different company to him, he has laughs with everyone, and even customers have got to know him. These people do an amazing job. They are always there for a chat, advice and support. It can be hard work, but it is all done with the love they have for helping the sufferers and their families.”

Please support this appeal by sharing with friends, family and staff outside of Solent Mind, and on social media. If you’re interested in fundraising for this appeal please do get in touch.

At last I have found a good and reliable gardening service willing to take on a small garden! Mark listened to what I wanted, gave some very useful advice, explained how to take care of some of my rather neglected potted shrubs and completely understood what my garden needed. Both Mark and his colleague were knowledgeable, courteous, worked really hard and cleaned up after themselves. Result - excellent job, tidy garden and very happy customer! I have no hesitation in recommending Andamar Landscapes and I will most certainly be using them on a regular basis from now on. Thanks guys :)

December jobs in the garden

1. Prune open-grown apples and pears (but not those trained against walls)
2.Prune acres
3. Deciduous trees and shrubs can be safely moved around the garden
4. If you have a favourite shrub and would like to grab the opportunity and try to cultivate new ones, now is the time to take hard wood cuttings

Olivers Garden

At Andamar Landscapes we are very proud and happy to have helped a severely disabled little boy, Oliver Taplin from Warsash get the garden of his dreams. Andamar  along with a few other local landscaping companies, mainly Pure Inspirations and Revitalise Gardens helped with the full makeover of Oliver's garden. This project meant  the entire garden became accessible and a wonderful space for him and his little sister to enjoy. Oliver's caring mother Rachel is still striving to raise money to help make Oliver's life more enjoyable, please support her as we have done and visit their go fund me page, just search on google.

Baytree becomes Andamar Landscapes

As part of a re-branding exercise Baytree will be changing it's name to Andamar Landscapes effective 02/03/2015. We hope this doesn't cause our customers any disruption. This a really exciting time for us as the company is growing.

Rest assured it's still run by the same people and the same high level of service will be maintained.

hedge Trimming

Get your hedges ready for the spring growth spurt. A little tip is to trim your hedge so it narrows towards the top. This allows light to the lower parts of the hedge encouraging thicker growth, it also prevents the hedge from becoming too top heavy.

New Year gardens

A new year begins in the garden and we have beautiful sunshine. What could be better than to open up the shed and make a start on some of those winter jobs.

1. Re edging the lawns
2. Pruning of fruit trees
3. Winter pruning the Wisteria....cut back the new green runners of the summer back to three buds, this will encourage strong healthy flowering. Note though, the fuller fatter dark buds will be flowering, the smaller flatter ones will be leaf buds.

Have fun!!
