Hire Me!

Offering a professional personal service, I have been maintaining private gardens throughout Northamptonshire since 2011 under the guise of Well Planted. I beleive that having this set up alows a good relationship to form between the client and myself which ultimately reflects on the garden.

Quite often you will find many people offering gardening services. Unfortunately many are unskilled, seasonal and you will find that you will be paying for someone who will cause more damage to your plants, soil and garden by applying wrong techniques such as pruning which can take years to rectify and can rob your plants of flower, shape and form.
Taking professionalism seriously, I am a Member of the Chartered Institute of Horticulture, The PGG and The Gardeners Guild, the latter in which my registered buisness details can be found. I also have public liability insurance for upto £5M and carry a low tier waste disposal licence for green waste.

Awards I hold are as follows:

2002 Young Horticulturist Of the Year of Great Britain

Qualifications I hold are as follows:

  • National Certificate in Horticulture
  • National Diploma in Horticulture
  • RHS Advanced Certificate

Pricing varies with each unique task required. As a guideline, a general hourly maintenance rate would be £21 per hour excluding materials.

Currently I have a full diary of regular clients but if you would like to go on a waiting list in case any space becomes available please let me know. Alternatively you can search The Gardeners Guild for someone nearer to you.

You can contact me via one of the following ways:

Some Testemonials from clients past and present:

Jenny, Earls Barton: ‘Well Planted is lead by a very talented Rocky, who I have had the pleasure and joy of knowing for many years. He has worked in my garden and transformed it tremendously into a tranquil beautiful space, helped on by his fantastic energy, enthusiasm and creativity, and forward thinking. He will cut, replant and divide without me having to spend a fortune at the Garden Centre to fill spaces. What more can I say to sing his praises except find out for yourself (but don’t tell too many people !)’

Freddie, Northampton: ‘Rocky, I would just like to say how much I appreciate all you do for our garden. As a fan of sub tropical plants, you have made our garden splendid! Such enthusiasm should be bottled! Your ideas and methods have made our garden fabulous! Thank you so much, I would have no hesitation in recommending your garden services.’

Vanessa, Pitsford: ‘I have some help in the garden from Rocky Coles of Well Planted. He’s fab and is so much fun to have around. Thankfully as well as being good with students he is also a real a wizz at everything plant related and has endless optimism .. even when it is raining. He’s the perfect gardener.’
