Promoting and supporting voluntary activity across South Northamptonshire


Garden Buddies Membership

Garden Buddies carries out basic garden maintenance work, including: lawn mowing, hedge cutting, pruning, digging, strimming, garden clearance.

Garden Buddies is a membership scheme which provides low-cost gardening services to the people who really need it. Accordingly, snvb reserves the right to refuse membership.

To qualify as a member, garden owners must:

  • live in South Northamptonshire
  • be unable to carry out the work themselves, due to age or disability
  • have no-one living with them or within a reasonable distance, who could be expected to help
  • live on a restricted income eg, a means-tested benefit or a basic state pension.

Once you have registered with us as a member, our project worker will fix a date to carry out an initial assessment of the work to be done. He will then provide you with a written estimate of hours and costs required. Provided you are happy with this, we will book your job in for the next available day.
