Are we right for you?

Not a typical garden maintenance company

Beyond Bloom is a small local team of professional and punctual gardeners with a passion – to cultivate our customer’s gardens into inspirational, life-enhancing spaces. 

Our horticulturally trained team has a broad knowledge of plants – ensuring the most professional outcome for your garden: and to reach a symbiosis with its nature.

Environment

Our gardeners work in harmony with nature in your garden.
We use human power as much as we possibly can, only using quiet lithium power tools when there is no other option.

We avoid the use of artificial pesticides and fertilisers – opting for the natural approach by adding organic materials to the soil to build long-term fertility.

We encourage composting as much as possible, as home-made compost is higher in nutrients than most shop-bought alternatives.

We repurpose as many old items as possible, such as pots and encourage the use of lower energy materials for use in your garden.

Specialist Tooling

As dedicated horticulturalists, we use the best gardening tools available. The majority of our bladed tools are hand-made in Japan, a country noted for their expertise in manufacturing the finest steel razor-sharp blades – resulting in the cleanest possible cut.

Other hand-held tools are made by Austrian coppersmiths, with ultra-fine edges, ideal for precision work and soil cultivation.

Most of our power tools are German-made lithium battery-powered to minimise noise and environmental pollution.

We sterilize tools and boots intermittently throughout the day, to mitigate the spread of disease.

Beyond Bloom Garden Maintenance - Andrea Vytlacil - BW - Cotswolds

Tailored Services

At Beyond Bloom, we endeavour to work closely with our customers, to form a working brief or schedule that suits each gardening need.

For regular customers, we will form a plan to maximise the potential of your garden throughout the seasons, whilst retaining the flexibility to adapt the brief to facilitate any changes or on-the-spot amendments you may wish to make.

If you need us for just a day or two, we will establish your requirements in advance then undertake the brief to the word, within the allocated time.

Our team of gardeners will be happy to offer any related gardening advise at the beginning of each appointment

Rain & Work

Whilst you can count on us to arrive on time for every appointment, the weather is beyond our control!

The good news is our team of intrepid gardeners are not shy of a bit of rain now and then – they’re more than happy to work during light short showers as they are equipped with rainproof clothing to keep them warm and dry.

Our team will not work during persistent and heavy rain, as this causes damage to gardens.

For persistent downpours, we may need to rebook your appointment. Cancelled appointments, due to heavy rain, will be rebooked as soon as possible.

“We found Andrea through a friend’s recommendation and are so so lucky to have her and her wonderful team. Andrea is fantastically knowledgeable with some fantastic ideas and is happy to work to your budget. She and her team are totally reliable, professional and hard working and our garden is giving us so much more pleasure now rather than being an extra thing to do on an ever increasing list of things to sort!”

– Jane, Dulwich

She is helpful and happy to provide ideas or work with my own to develop the garden. I am consistently given compliments on the garden by friends and family”

– Alex, West Dulwich

Andrea Vytlacil and her happy Beyond Bloom crew have tended to my garden for the past three years. Andrea is a friendly and enlightened horticulturist with an appreciation for the formal and informal gardens.

She is hard working, thorough, and it is a pleasure to have her look after my garden.

– Sheila, Herne Hill

Andrea designed our garden a few years ago and has been coming back on a monthly basis to maintain it to a very high standard, despite the antics of our dog.

She provides a reliable service and is happy to make changes, such as adding more fruit trees, golden raspberries and strawberries, since our kids love picking fruit.

– Adeline, Streatham Hill

Keeping the garden under control has been transformed for me by Andrea and her team. She tackles any problem with cheerfulness and determination and knows her plants and their natures.

I can highly recommend her work!
