Why work with nature and choose organic methods?

With over 15 million gardens in the UK ranging in sizes, shapes and styles, if they were all maintained using organic methods and no pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and the like, then the environment could be a little better for wildlife, nature and us all. You can read more about the importance of gardens in our blog post “Gardens as invaluable habitat”.
