My business trading name is IBH GREEN SERVICES but people know me as Mudboy or just Ian the Gardener.
I offer the following services – Gardening maintenance and plant care, staining and timber care, external and internal painting, water butt installation, even allotment rescue if the rules allow it. Other enquiries welcome. I work with nature so I will not use pesticides. I like to know what I do helps build sustainability and welcome any enquiries in that area, such as reusing materials to make something new – like making palettes into planters. I have also had experience of building protective fences for animals such as ducks. I can also help put together your solar energy array
