Our work speaks for itself...

“Our front yard needed a makeover and a good tidy up. Mary-Clare listened, gave great advice that always kept budget and timing in mind, and quickly mobilized her friendly, knowledgeable and hard working team.
We had new borders built, retaining walls repainted, some new lawn laid, and new plants installed. All our garden beds were cleaned, fertilised and refreshed with new mulch. The irrigation system was repaired and moved where necessary, without me having to ask. Existing plants were trimmed as a matter of course. The team knew what to do, and got on with it.
Best of all, while we were away overseas, they kept working and looked after our place as if it was their own.
I’d spoken to other people about our gardens and lawns, and even had them do some work, but none cared as much, or were as responsive as The Farmer’s Daughter team.”

“We can’t recommend Mary-Clare and her team highly enough. From our initial meeting we knew that she would listen and give sensible advice and that was just what she did. She listened to our vague suggestions and thoughtfully guided us in the right direction. When it came to the execution of the refashioning of the garden all of her team were helpful, efficient and friendly. Her ideas and advice have created a very useable space that was previously like a wasteland. Her suggested choice of plants look wonderful – simple and effective. We can’t thank her enough and would recommend her most highly.”
With kind regards

"Just wanted to let you know the people you sent over were great, they knew their stuff, were friendly  and did a really good job. I'll be back in contact for more garden tidy ups, and have been recommending your company to others. I found 'Farmer's Daughter' to be friendly, prompt and efficient."

"The garden looks absolutely fabulous! That would have taken us weeks to do!"

We have been using ‘Farmer’s Daughter Gardeners’ for over two years now and are very happy with their service. We tried a number of other places before hand, however, found that the services they offered were too expensive and not what we were looking for. Farmer’s Daughters worked in with us and our budget to meet our need for general maintenance at a price we could afford, and even allowed us to pay by automatic payment. It’s been great being able to just forget about the gardens, knowing that they will be looked after by Farmer’s Daughter’s. I would recommend them any time.

Your team did a fantastic job! They were friendly, knowledgable and very efficient. Within a few hours the garden was weed-free, pruned and under control again, which was a sight for sore eyes for me :-) Having your team help me out has been such an easy solution to a problem which was really bugging me - now all I have to do is concentrate on filling the gaps in the garden with some plants. Thanks again for all your help.

I have never asked if I can write a testimonial before and this in itself is testiment to how highly I regard the services provided by Farmers Daughter. I made a call on the Monday and two days later I had a team of five arrive who worked non stop for five hours and turned my unkept garden back into the tropical paradise it once was. The team were so efficient and took so much pride in what they were doing. I can’t recommend this business more strongly.

Thank you so much for the wonderful job - I nearly cried when I came home and saw my sadly neglected property/garden beginning to come back to life. We’ve had one heck of a year and things just got beyond me - so this was such a ‘lift’ to the spirit. From here I’ll be able to get out and start rebuilding the garden and do some planting - wonderful for Christmas! Please pass on my thanks to your team, I’m absolutely delighted with the result.

I have known Mary-Clare for nearly two years. She is polite, punctual and works like a dog. Makes a beautiful job, tidies up beautifully, and sweeps clean.

Everything is accomplished with a very strong work ethic, and most importantly - Happily.

Mary-Clare Brownlie has undertaken gardening duties for me recently and she has proved to be a hard-working reliable person. I have found her to be knowledgeable with good ideas and she carries out the work with care and skill. I would not hesitate to recommend her services to any one.
