Gardening Services

Bring out the best in your garden.

A beautiful garden is a source of pleasure, pride and relaxation. It can be a great space for entertaining and can even increase the value of your property. Sycamore Gardening will create, bring back to life and maintain every aspect of your garden.

We deliver competitively-priced garden maintenance services for properties in and around Hull. Whether it’s a large or small garden, private communal grounds or commercial property, our team provides an efficient and reliable service.


A business with a difference
– a social enterprise

By hiring Sycamore Gardening you are also helping people living in one of the UK’s most challenged communities, to come together and transform their life chances.

At no extra cost, we provide paid work placements, which allow employees to build experience, develop work habits and the skills needed in an accessible trade. We aim to be the secure and supported first step into the job market, which is elusive to so many young adults growing up in our community.

All our profits are either invested to offer more placements or used to benefit the Hessle Road community by funding our charity work with families.

Unfortunately, we are not currently taking on any new work at this time as we have a full compliment of regular customers.

We are however looking to grow the business this year by adding a second gardening team, which will give us more capacity and enable us to offer more work opportunities.

Who We Are


Since the collapse of the fishing trade, the Boulevard/Hessle Road community has suffered with long-term unemployment and this has contributed to creating many severe difficulties and barriers for local people. Government statistics suggest our community is amongst the most challenging places to live in the country (IMD 2019). In 2019, Hull Daily Mail reported that Hull was the hardest place to find work and the pandemic has only made things harder. Many of our community’s challenges stem from the impact that a lack of meaningful employment has on person; emotionally, socially and physically.

With Sycamore Gardening we aim to do something about this social injustice. We aim to create opportunity where there is little. It can be the catalyst its beneficiaries long for; enabling them to pull themselves and their families out of poverty with an earned income.

It serves those who have been long-term unemployed or struggled to hold down a role, but predominantly the young adults struggling to get their first paid position.

The opportunity to work alongside our experienced and passionate lead gardener  builds confidence, develops essential skills and importantly is the chance to gain experience which will be a springboard to move onto further training or long-term employment.

Our Charity

Sycamore Gardening is a social enterprise run by the charity Giroscope (Registered Charity Number: 1117457).

Giroscope began as a housing charity based in west Hull in the mid-1980s. With over thirty years’ history and experience Giroscope is truly embedded in its local community where it seeks to revitalise and regenerate the local area with the community’s help. It believes:

  • Everyone is entitled to somewhere that they can call their home.
  • Everyone should have access to meaningful work, and be fairly rewarded for that work.
  • No one should feel isolated from their community for reasons of poverty, homelessness or prejudice.

The Sycamore Gardening team is fully equipped with equipment that has been generously donated by our three corporate partners. Fiskars and Burgon & Ball have supplied us with their finest hand tools. Treadstone have kindly given us a wide selection of their award-winning Clip Gloves.

We are extremely grateful for all the support they are giving to our enterprise and to our aims of making a difference in the lives of young people in our community.
