Welcome to Jacques gardens
We offer a reliable and trustworthy service in your garden at transparent and reasonable rates.
As former second homeowners for fifteen years before 'retiring' to France, we are fully aware of the headache a big French garden can be if it's not under control. We are also from a service background so take reliability and integrity seriously.
PLANNED ANNUAL MAINTENANCE OR JUNGLE CLEARANCE ?
We are happy to carry out ad-hoc clearance of a 'jungle' as well as planned and costed annual maintenance.
Our rates for planned annual maintenance are considerably lower than ad-hoc work. Similarly, an annual contract taken out to follow up a clearance job will attract discounts to both elements.
Our maintenance plans are agreed between you and us each year, with the time and frequency allocated to each task in plain view along with a fully predictable cost (see example below).
NOT LIVING IN FRANCE FULL TIME ?
We are also happy to keep your garden maintained while you are away from France or selling your French house; once again an activity plan with cost would be agreed beforehand. And if you're up for sale, when the house sells, you stop paying.
We keep you posted by email (with photos) as to what has been done in the garden, and for convenience we are able to accept payment to our UK bank account as well (exchange rate used is TransferWise).
