Regular garden maintenance by Holts

These are gardens that I regularly maintain or have maintained. I’ll keep adding to it, though there is a lot of them. They all have a few things in common. Can you tell what they are?

Needless to say, Peter is very happy and he wrote a very positive review for  Holts Prestige Gardens as a result

Peter!s Photinia hedge was planted by HOLTS and the results speak for themselves. The variety, spacing of plants and light tip pruning will result in a perfect bushy hedge

hedges trimmed

These Eleebana gardens include Small Ficus street trees which are formally trimmed. Originally they were not trimmed, with a lot of dieback. Keeping them in rounded shapes requires a lot of skill;the kind that over 22 years of experience will bring

hedge trimming

The story of these gardens in Hamilton South are a common theme that reads like a fairy tale  ( but it’s all true ). The gardens were in a mess, like Sleeping Beauty. Along comes Holts Prestige Gardens who hack through the mess and revive the gardens. So now it’s paradise, with neat hedges and very few weeds. As long as Brian Holt keeps calling by, these gardens will live happily ever after

tiny tree with lot flower grows

These gardens at East Maitland include the wonderful standard roses which you can see here. The pruning these require is actually very minimal. They should never be pruned back to a few lonely looking twigs. As a result of proper maintenance they regularly look like this. So it pays to get good help, which is why our slogan is ‘We Can Help’ — in Maitland, New South Wales.
