City Escapes have been assisting home owners with their gardens, big or small,  since 1988 when the plunge was taken with tools loaded in the back of a Mk 1 Escort. Now in excess of 30 years of meeting the needs of our Clients and making their gardens look as good as possible using our Teams of dedicated and skilled gardeners who will attend to the needs of your garden and more on a regular and reliable basis.


All our staff are fully insured, uniformed and driving easily identified company branded vehicles. The same two gardeners will always attend to your garden (where one of these cannot attend, one staff member will always be familiar to ensure continuity for you).

Gardens naturally evolve over time either improving or becoming an overgrown mess. Maintenance implies holding a certain level over the years. We aim to be part of the beneficial garden evolution process where year on year improvement is evident.

"I am emailing you in relation to the two gardeners who attend our facility every week on a Wednesday. 


I would like you to pass on our thanks to both of these gentleman, who are always happy, pleasant, respectful and hard working.  Our gardens have never looked better and nothing is to much trouble for them. 

These gentleman also offer advice to staff about flowers/plants and respect that this is a residential dementia home, ensuring that all gates are locked behind them and that all garden mess is cleared away, which I would like to point out has been a problem in the past.

At times we forget to recognise people for the work that they do, and it is with this in mind that I am sending this email. Many thanks to your team."
