About Us


Wanda’s Gardening & Landscaping is a local community-minded gardening company. More than just a ‘weed and mow’, we dedicate our days to improving every garden we visit. As a family-run local business, we would rather build a community than a faceless company! We love to hear from people, so leave us a comment here or join our Facebook community, even if you aren’t yet a customer. At the end of the day, we are all here for the same reason – we love gardens!

We also love gardening responsibly. Whilst it’s not always possible, we work hard to use organic materials wherever we can. It’s amazing how many alternatives are available these days! We are constantly looking for new ways to help a garden flourish, without endangering the local wildlife. This is even true of our weed sprays! All our weed sprays are environmentally responsible, can be used near waterways and are pet safe.

Happy Customer


“I have used Wanda’s Gardening & Landscaping for a couple of years or more now and have always found the young team that undertake the tasks for them are efficient, knowledgeable and caring. Plus it gives them employment and training. They reward regular users with special rates which is important as so many companies charge you the same rate whether you are a one off user or regular . So try them and see what you think, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. Their team are good.”


At Wanda’s, we use high-grade products that are environmentally-friendly wherever possible. The tools of our trade are all of the highest quality, and are regularly treated to prevent the spread of disease. All cutting implements are frequently sharpened, to ensure the best result.

We only source top-quality mulches that are weed-free. Sadly, many of the cheaper mulches in the marketplace use artificial dyes to give them a richer colour. Not only is this not good for your garden, but it can seep and stain your pavement and driveway as well. We never use dyed mulch.

We also go to great effort to source nutrient-rich additions for your garden. Some of these products, such as our microbe selection, are not available to the general public.

Part of our service is tidying up after ourselves. It sounds obvious, but you’d  be amazed by how many other companies don’t do this!

Not only do we collect all the garden waste, we also clear all the leaves off the paths and driveways, flush out the spider webs – even coil up the hose! We pride ourselves on leaving each property looking spick and span.


Wanda Balestri - Business Owner

A lot of people ask us if Wanda actually exists!  Well, yes she does, and this is her story…

It all started back in 2005. Wanda wanted to go back to work after her kids started school. There was a small problem though. Wanda had worked in an office before she had kids. Even though she had liked her job, she wasn’t sure if she wanted to go back to that. She DEFINITELY didn’t want to go back to uncomfortable pantyhose and painful shoes! This was her chance to go in a new direction. So, what made her happy? That was easy – gardening. But could she earn a living doing that? There was only one way to find out…

Armed with her trusty tools and a pair of truly awesome boots, she set off on her new adventure. Through the blistering sun, the torrential rain, the blisters and flies she toiled. It was hard going, but she was happy. Soon, word spread of her work. Of hedges tamed, weeds banished, gardens brought back to life. More and more people wanted Wanda to bring her magic to their gardens. It wasn’t long before she needed to bring in people to work with her. People who loved plants as much as she did, and who had a great attention to detail. Finding these people wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. Not only did Wanda have more staff, but with their passion for gardens, they could all share their ideas and knowledge. Things continued to thrive.

Now, with Enrico (the dynamic Mr Balestri) joining Wanda as Operations Manager, she has been able to hire more Garden Gurus and set up another team. Wanda’s Gardening & Landscaping has grown from a one-woman band to having twelve staff in various roles. This means that we are fully capable of handling all of your gardening needs. But don’t think that we have lost sight of our mission. We are proud to be working in our local community. We still aim to provide GUARANTEED EXCEPTIONAL PRODUCTS & SERVICE.  And we still hate pantyhose.
