City Escapes About Us

City Escapes commenced trading in 1988 originally in South London. Now primarily based back in Burwash, Sussex City Escapes continues to service gardens in London, Sussex and Kent though with the majority of Clients within a 20 mile radius of Burwash.


City Escapes provides garden construction and landscaping services and garden and grounds maintenance services through an agreed written schedule of annual visits to an agreed written cycle of regular and reliable attendance.   


City Escapes provides this service to you or your company utilising teams of capable committed gardeners who will attend to your gardens needs throughout the year. Being skilled they will achieve the best from your garden whether it be large or small and having the ability to identify the plants in your garden is an absolute necessity if one has any chance of achieving good results. Therefore, plants will be pruned correctly and at the right time for them to flourish.


Lawn edges will be trimmed with shears never a petrol strimmer, lawns neatly mown with the appropriate sized machinery, hedges neatly trimmed, borders cultivated and generally weed free, plants dead headed as appropriate, recommendations made and where required seasonal containerised displays magically appear.


All the while leaving you free to either sit back and enjoy your garden or in the case of Commercial Clients to get on with the multitude of other tasks safe in the knowledge that the gardens and grounds are no longer a tiresome time draining burden.
