Gardening

Having a deep love for gardens that shines through in all the gardening work I that do. I mow, treat and maintain lawns, trim hedges, trim topiary, weed borders and mulch. I create fabulous gardens and planting schemes to suit every garden and every budget.

Community Projects

Since the start of June 2016 I have been running and assisting with community based projects for ONGO Communities. These are based at the Viking Center in Barton upon Humber and also at Somerby road allotments in Scunthorpe. I have more planned to watch this space!

Planting

Creating stunning planting combinations through my blend of garden design skills and Horticultural knowledge. Imagine in your garden a balance of architectural shapes and drama from dramatic bursts of colour, this is just one of the ways I plan and plant your garden.

Welcome to Gardening by John Cavill.

Alan Titchmarsh emailed me to say "Congratulations on the most sensational garden" after designing and building an inspirational children's project.

Alan Titchmarch

Hello and welcome to my website and all the inspirational gardening, planting and floral enhancements that I have had the privilege to work on. From concept to reality I will ease your garden in the right direction and turn any area into a usable, floral, structural and happy place for you to enjoy.

Harrogate Show Garden

At Harrogate Flower Show 2015 I designed and built the "Quirky Cottage Garden" and was delighted to be awarded A Premier Gold Medal & Best in Show which was the first time these two medals have been awarded at the same time at a show for 5 years. This shows how special these medals are and how proud I am to win them.

I offer are all types of gardening, planting design, hedge cutting, lawns treated, mowed and edged, weeding and border enhancement plus fine maintenance. I specialise in planting schemes and can light up even the darkest of gardens with flowers.

Every aspect of gardening

On a daily basis I mow, treat and edge lawns. I scarify them, aerate them too adding specialist rubber crumb if needed.

I trim hedges, fine cut topiary and know when to trim and when not. I plant hedges too either bare root through the winder or potted through the summer.

Weeding is a specialty, digging hoeing and spraying them out very carefully keeps the weeds at bay.

Established in 2005

Over the past 11 years I have designed and built 126 projects all over the country. I have sold gardening tools on the QVC shopping channel, wrote a gardening column in the Evening Telegraph, wrote features in Kitchen Garden Magazine and presently I am working as a professional gardener plus teaching horticulture in two different schools with one of them being special needs.

About Me

John Cavill My Vision

I always aim high to create gardens and outdoor spaces to give you a greater enjoyment, time to relax and a good life outside. Using plants to bring your garden alive linking your house with nature and giving your outside space a definite wow factor is what I promise to do.

My Mission

My mission is simple. I strive to create inspirational gardens and landscape areas by using fabulous planting combinations and the finest landscaping materials.

A little more about my Family.

My Mother (Pat Cavill) had a degree in horticulture, my Grandfather was head of the allotment and Chrysanthemum society in Hull and my Father (Harry Cavill) grew prize Dahlias (plus takes my calls of me today and does my accounts!). Further back my Great Grandfather (Henry Knight) designed and built gardens in Kent, France and Hull. So I must be following in their footsteps.

Community Projects

Alan Titchmarsh emailed me to say:

"Congratulations on the most sensational garden, I only wish more folk were so committed to getting children gardening in such a fun way. Best wishes and again many, many congratulations on a brilliant job.

 

 

Working in ONGO Communities I am running the allotment community project on Somerby road in Scunthorpe and also working at the Viking Centre in Barton upon Humber. Planting the ONGO planter outside Crosby employment in Scunthorpe and much more.

Starting with overgrown areas and taking them back to basics. Then building on what's there by planting and growing with children, volunteers, students and special needs we are making these areas exciting. Helping with grounds maintenance in different areas and looking at anything that makes a difference through gardening.

Through ONGO Communities I am involved with a whole host of inspiring projects. The benefits of these projects are to engage tenants and their children, give volunteers something real to be a part of and grow allsorts of fruit, vegetables and flowers! Growing vegetables in the community then cooking and eating them is just fantastic! Adding floral displays to brighten up community areas adds an all important feel great factor to community areas too!

Show Gardens - Premier Gold Medal Winner (and lots of other medals too!)

THE NEWBY CUP FOR PLANTING EXCELLENCE   -   GARDENERS WORLD AWARD   -   BEST IN SHOW 2015

Take a look at the highlights from the show gardens I have designed and built over the past 11 years. Show gardens are exciting gardens that show what I can achieve with the garden designs I make. They also show my planting design and what's possible to build in just two weeks. These are fun to build but have a very serious side too as they are seen by 1000's of show visitors each year and have to be the best I can achieve.

Teaching & Children's Projects

Over the past few year I have had the pleasure and opportunity to work on many projects involving children. This all started after making a difference at Bowmandale School in Barton with "A quiet area" for reading. Since then I have run gardening and horticulture based projects at Whitgift Academy in Grimsby, Osgodby primary school, Willoughby Road School and St Hugh's Special needs school. I have taught moon planting, a BTEC in Land based studies and all sorts of growing for over 26 country's around the world.

At Whitgift Alan Titchmarsh said "I am so impressed with the developments at Whitgift - Your an inspiration, keep on growing and enjoying it, every best wish, Alan."
