Sometimes its nice to feel the soil between your toes, especially on a beautiful spring day at the allotment.

At Compassionate Roots we pride ourselves on our ability to use qualified horticultural knowledge to provide you with down to earth, high quality, professional gardening services. We are friendly, qualified gardeners so you can rest assured that your plants will be safe under our care. Whether it be specialised pruning, wildlife gardens or tree pruning, you can count on us.

We hold wildlife and the environment very close to our hearts, so when gardening we aim to work with nature to provide beautiful gardens that can be appreciated by both our clients and the wild creatures they share that space with. Read more about the origins of Compassionate Roots or subscribe to our blog to read tips, advice and learn more about plants in our ‘plant of the week’ blog posts.

Our gardening services are available in Nottingham, Cotgrave, Beeston, West Bridgford, Radcliffe-On-Trent, Burton Joyce, Lambley and surrounding areas. Contact us to see if we can help with your gardening needs.  

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 much better for wildlife and humankind. You can read more about the importance of gardens in our blog post “Gardens as invaluable habitat”.

Wildflowers and you!

Wildflower meadows are truly spectacular sights, yet they are a rare sight these days with 97% of wildflower habitats having been destroyed. Why not set some of your lawn aside and create a spectacular mini wildflower habitat in your garden?
