Mike & Justin Partridge Maintaining your gardens, pools and houses throughout the year

After several years in farming, Mike left the UK in 1990 with his then young family. He created this family run business in 1999 and was joined by his son Justin in 2003 who had completed an apprenticeship and college course in France qualifying as landscape gardener.

The team has recently been completed by Romain, a local French lad, who served a 4 year apprenticeship with them. We are situated at Gindou, north of the Lot department, and cover a wide area of the Lot and south Dordogne.

Regular care of your garden can bring many rewards, and it’s this need for frequent attention that for some people is the best part of having a garden; watching plants that you have loved and nurtured grow and flourish.

As every plant lover will know, the garden is a place where you and your family can relax, unwind, and enjoy yourselves. It can reduce stress levels and improve your quality of life. Additionally, if the garden is kept in shape by regular maintenance, it can be a very enjoyable extension of your existing home and potentially add value to your property as a whole.

Swimming Pool Maintenance

Mike has worked closely with several pool companies for over 15 years and his services offer opening and closing swimming pools as well as regular maintenance.

Under normal conditions, a well-cared-for swimming pool should never need “emergency” cleaning services. However, if you have chemical imbalances or faulty equipment, then any pool can "go green" in a hurry, especially in summer. When that happens, you'll need someone to respond quickly. Mike has extensive experience restoring pools anywhere from "slight cloudiness" to a full-blown swamp.

No matter how large or small the job, he'll be happy to provide a quick estimate free of charge, and get started on the recovery process right away.In some cases, it may only take a calculated chemical treatment and a filter cleaning and inspection for him to get your water clear again. Mike also offers a service pressure washing and cleaning your pool surround.

Building/Maintenance work

Mike and Justin are fully experienced in building and maintenance works having both constructed their own houses. Their services include, painting windows and shutters, interior/exterior painting, small building works, laying terraces and patios and fencing.

Customers’ recommendations

"Mike is an expert gardener, balancing aesthetics and customers’ tastes with the practical considerations demanded by the varying terrain of the Lot. He also has great vision and worked wonders transforming a building site into a garden in no time at all!

It’s a comfort to know that Mike is close at hand looking after our swimming pool. Most of our guests are not used to pools and having Mike come and check it every week rules out any (potentially expensive) disasters!"
