Our gardens are important to us and Community First’s Home Services understands that in later life gardening can become more than a little difficult.
Our Gardening team is here to support residents in Fareham and Havant who are older or live with disabilities. We will take care of the day-to-day work so that you can enjoy your home and garden.
We assist people with light gardening maintenance such as mowing, weeding and low-level pruning.
