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.
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.
Name: Ivan Guevara
Position: Projects Lead
I joined Orchard as a partner in 2015. My background in customer service and event management gave me the skills necessary to project manage all our jobs to ensure they are completed both within time and budget. It always starts with the customer and getting the brief right. It is important right from the very beginning that we understand the customer’s needs and requirements. From this we are able to make suggestions in line with the customer’s requirements, lifestyle and desires. Once the scope and timetable for the work is known, the event planner in me kicks in to ensure the work is completed on time and within budget.
It’s a very exciting time for us as we continue to grow and provide even more services to our customers.
What I love most about what I do: From meeting new customers and providing quotes to pitching in and getting my hands dirty. I never have the same day twice.
Interesting fact: My first language is Spanish.

Position: Maintenance and Lawns
I am passionate about gardens, nature and encouraging others to interact with their outside spaces. Too many people see their gardens as a chore or something to be looked at; where in reality the garden is a natura extension to their home that should be celebrated and enjoyed like any other space within the house. Conservation is also important to me and I volunteer with TCV, a conservation project based in Manchester and Bristol. Prior to joining Orchard, I worked in forestry for one and a half years and another gardening company before starting my own gardening business. As well as improving domestic gardens I also enjoy the challenge of larger gardens having worked on a country estate in Italy.
I am well qualified with a Diploma level one in Practical Horticulture from Taunton and Bridgwater college; a Diploma in Forestry level one from Cannington College (now part of Bridgwater and Taunton College) and a Degree in Landscape Architecture, 2:1.
What I love most about what I do: I enjoy working outdoors in nature, and I like the exercise I get from gardening, and the satisfaction of seeing a beautiful garden.
An Interesting fact: My landscaping work enabled me to design a garden in Sweden.
