Can I book a gardener on an ongoing, recurring basis?

Yes - we can book you in with a tried & trusted gardener on a recurring, ongoing basis. They can help with ongoing maintenance tasks like lawn mowing and hedge trimming.

Or you can book gardeners on a one-off basis, as and when you need a hand. Just let us know when you fill out our online form.

How are your gardeners vetted?

All of our gardeners are tried, trusted & qualified for the job, with plenty of experience. And we collect reviews and feedback from every booking to ensure 5* quality. 

Do you have gardeners available near me?

When you fill out our online form, we'll ask for your address. We'll make sure that you're matched with a trusted local gardener who's based near you.

Are your gardeners fully insured?

Yes - all of our gardeners are fully insured.

We've got great customer service, and our responsive support team are at hand to help if any issues come up during your booking.
 

Do you have gardeners available at short notice?

How can I trust the quote I'm given?

We’ll provide a detailed quote before we confirm your booking. We’ll include labour, VAT, parking charges, travel fees or other costs. If it's required, you can also request that we quote for waste disposal at the same time.

Booking a local gardener with Housekeep

Finding a good local gardener can be a challenge.

There’s a chance you’ll get lucky with a recommendation from friends or family - but for most of us, it means hours spent trawling the internet, looking through terrible websites, trying to find a reputable company. Some companies try to charge for a quote, costing you time & money, with no guarantee of a great service.

That's why we set up Housekeep - so you could book trusted, local professionals hassle-free. 

Need a gardener? We’ll provide a fast, no-obligation quote for your job. Just fill out our online form and our dedicated trade team will send you a quote. All free-of-charge.

If you’d like to go ahead with the booking, we'll schedule the job for a time that suits you. Then we’ll send you an email to confirm the booking. No long back-and-forth, no costly quote and no stress. 

But, what about the actual job? How can you be sure the work will be completed to a 5* standard? 

It’s right to ask. Pick the wrong gardener and you could end up with a delayed schedule, endless hidden costs, and - if you’re really unlucky - half-finished work. You’re then left out of pocket with nowhere to turn.

Our gardeners are vetted and have plenty of experience. We've got gardeners for all kinds of garden maintenance tasks, including lawn mowing, hedge trimming, waste removal and pressure washing for your patio, driveway or decking. You name it - we fix it.

We’ll provide a detailed quote before you commit to the work - including VAT, parking & travel. You can also request that waste disposal gets included, if it's going to be required. In the event that any further work is needed, we’ll make sure you’re happy to proceed before you’re billed. So you’re in full control.

Need a hand with your booking? We’ve got a ridiculously responsive support team to guide you through the process - from quote to completion. You can reach us by phone, chat or email, 7 days a week.

Our gardening services are COVID-19 secure; we're going above and beyond government guidance, and have introduced enhanced hygiene processes for all bookings. We’re also taking all the steps we can to maintain social distancing and ensure trade jobs are delivered safely.

Eric did an incredible job cleaning the house and he was really lovely too. Everything is completely spotless! This is the best clean I have received through housekeep so far! I would definitely recommend Eric to others for their cleans.

Kate - Balham, 2 weeks ago

We moved in recently so our flat is a bit chaotic, but Anna was super efficient and has left it sparkling (even where it's more difficult/there are actual piles of stuff that we haven't found a home for yet!). Looking forwards to my next clean with her!

Julia - Balham, 4 weeks ago

She worked really hard, cleaned really well and was very sweet and adaptable too. I had a one-off clean with her.. Didn't realise I could tip her here so did it in person.

Leila - Balham, 1 month ago

Rabia has done the most amazing job! Best housekeeper we have had and would definitely recommend her to anyone. She went above and beyond to ensure everything got done in the time and to a high standard :)!

Kate - Balham, 1 month ago

Thank you so much! This is the first time Anna's cleaned for us, and we would love to have her again!!

L - Balham, 1 month ago

Malika did a really thorough job, managing to get up some nasty wood stains and other things previous companies had overlooked or missed. Really pleased with the end result, would happily have her round again.

Paul - Balham, 2 months ago

Lemba was really thorough and efficient. She did a great job cleaning the kitchen and bathrooms

Lauren - Balham, 2 months ago

Shifau always exceeds my expectations! She is the best - so thorough yet efficient. The house always looks SPARKLING when she leaves. Couldn't recommend her more.

D - Balham, 2 months ago

Shifau always does a great job at our home, she is very reliable and timely. It is lovely to come back to a fresh and clean flat when Shifau has been in.

L - Balham, 2 months ago

Great and thorough cleaning. Very friendly and lovely cleaner. Booked a one-off cleaning as our regular cleaner was away, but Lyudmila was so nice we wish we could have both cleaners!
