About Us

Welcome to the Orchard about page. We are based out of Nailsea North Somerset. We are both happy and proud to call Somerset home. It is a beautiful part of the world. This site is dedicated to the work we provide for North Somerset. We ensure that your space at home is comfortable and a pleasure to enjoy. Our main focus is to maintain and improve domestic gardens and interior areas.

Areas We Cover

Nailsea Portishead

We only work with qualified and experienced trades people as you may read on our Team page. Our experienced team can improve the look of an outside space through gardening, landscaping or power cleaning.

We work using quality materials by an experienced and qualified team who provide high quality domestic gardening services. We will meet your needs by treating your green space like it was our own. We strive to ensure you will be satisfied with our services and finish. We mow lawns and edge them to give it a great finish. Some of our equipment allows for lines to be left on the lawn. If you enjoy this type of finish, please let us know when you book. We cut hedges using electric and petrol cutters. We have long reach equipment and platforms of all sizes to reach the highest of hedges. We dispose of the waste in a responsible manner. Garden Clearance is another service we provide. Using brush cutters we can level an area and prepare it for the next stage in your project or simply cover it with weed barriers to ensure that weeds and plants do not return. Weeding, whether a small area or a large one, we can clear the undesired from your garden. Garden Maintenance or a tidy up as it has been referred, is something we specialise in. We bring in the expertise and leave your garden renewed, ready for enjoyment and use. Orchard also offers a professional outdoor cleaning service. We will carefully remove dirt, stains, leaves, moss, weeds and any other unwanted discolouration, leaving you with a renewed space to enjoy. We have experience cleaning driveways, paths, facia and gutters. We use petrol power washers, long reach brushes for facia and a long reach vacuum system for gutters. We can also alter your garden through landscaping. Whether it’s repairs or a new patio, path, block paving, fence or turfing. The Team at Orchard will use the outmost care to complete all works to a high standard.

The Team

Name: Ivan Guevara

Position: Projects Lead

Experience: I initially started with orchard in 2015 mowing lawns and doing odd jobs. My partner at the time quickly saw that we worked well together and that my background in customer service and events management could grow the company. And grow it did under our new partnership. We expanded into power cleaning and increased the number of team members. In 2017 my partner moved on to other work and I happily took the helm of Orchard. To the present, it has been an exciting year as we look to expand further and offer more services than ever.
