About Grab a Gardener
Welcome to grabagardener.com! We are an online marketplace connecting customers to local experienced and trusted gardeners.
The UK loves gardening and we absolutely mirror that passion! So when the good weather finally arrives, it makes all the difference to spend time outside in a well maintained garden that you can be proud of. Whether you have a busy schedule and don’t have the time to take care of the lawn or would just like a helping hand so that you can focus on the finer pruning; whatever your gardening needs, we want to ensure your garden is your haven to enjoy.
Until now the search for a gardener was a monumental task and usually through a secret society of referrals! Even then, availability, reliability and varying prices were additional hurdles to overcome.We provide a platform for our customers to easily search and find trusted, vetted local gardeners every time they book.
Our professional gardeners are insured, background checked and interviewed in person by us, so you’re guaranteed the highest quality service. We pride ourselves on working with the UK’s most experienced gardeners and landscapers.
Living the commuter lifestyle and moving house every year Co-founders Nav and Ant found it impossible to find a gardener. Not knowing the local area and failing miserably in their search online and offline; they decided to take matters into their own hands and founded Grab a Gardener!
After a succesful launch in Reading, Grabagardener started attracting high demand in other areas and soon expanded throughout the South of England into Greater London and as far west as Plymouth, Somerset and Gloucstershire. Closing the year by launching the service in the North East.
After receiving investment from one of the UKs leading Angel investors at the end of 2016; we are focused on improving our software to ensure a better user experience for our customers. We have big plans to continue our growth and expand across the UK and transform the way people find a local gardener!

Neil was working for a garden maintenance company and wanted to go self-employed. He had all the expertise but did not have the customer base or knowhow of how to launch his own business.
He applied for an interview with Grabagardener and we helped him take that next step. Grab a Gardener took care of marketing the service in his local area and scheduling the work. Within a matter of weeks Neil was working flat out and had his own round of local customers keeping him busy 12 months of the year!Find out more
