Gardening Scheme

Gardening Project - Individual

Our gardening scheme is the organisations first Social Enterprise that Leeds Black Elders Association has undertaken, the gardening scheme became a Social Enterprise in 2007.

This scheme is a seasonal service. Usually commencing from April and ending September/October (weather permitting).

  • Clearing overgrown gardens
  • Cutting and pruning hedges/bushes
  • Mowing lawns
  • Planting

We may take other types of outside work, i.e fencing in the out of season months.

Our referral system allows the service user/representative to contact the office with their details, where each referral is logged and responded to within 24 hours. Once all details have been taken, a site visit will be undertaken.

When the work has been completed service users are given a choice of being put onto a regular rota where the service users garden will be visited every two to three weeks on request.

There are two rates for this service there is a commercial rate for works carried to the public who do not fit the criteria and a domestic rate for our service users.
