About Adrian Jameson

I have been involved in gardening since a very early age.  I used to assist my Mother in tending to our very large garden as a child in Ireland. In my teenage years, during school holidays, I restored these gardens back to their former glory.  When I left school I attended Kildalton Agricultural College to study commercial horticulture, but after successfully completing the course I realised that my passion was for private gardens.

As I couldn’t find employment I started my own business in 1983. I started doing garden maintenance both for private and commercial clients and commercial fruit pruning.

In 1989 I was offered a position of running the garden maintenance section in a London based landscape company called Aspen Landscape Designers and Gardeners. While working for them I gained some landscaping skills. Aspen had some prestigious and varied contracts such as the French Ambassadors residence where I tended to the gardens for 8 years and some roof gardens, some of which were 37 floors up.

In 1998 I left Aspen to set up my own company, Calary Gardens, based in London.  I took on both private and commercial work, winning two awards for one of the blocks of flats.  No job was too small to take on and in London some of the gardens are very small but could still be beautiful.

In 2007 I sold the business to move to Mount Gambier, South Australia. I took a year off to try other pursuits but have returned to my passion and brought Calary Gardens to Mount Gambier.  At present I’m involved with maintenance and renovation projects.


Adrian has taken sole care of our two gardens in London for the past 18 years. During that time he has been unfailingly professional and reliable in every way and maintained the gardens impeccably.

Our larger garden is on a plot of one third of an acre and contains a large variety of trees, shrubs and general plants and flowers. He has been responsible for pruning and all seasonal work required including care of lawns. When we have had building works done he has liased with the contractors and protected the garden including moving plants and tress to temporary containers. He has similarly drained the pond and saved the plants therein while remedial works were carried out. He has always been extremely helpful when other contractors are involved and regularly oversaw the tree surgeons on their annual visits to attend to mature larger trees. He has successfully introduced new mature to both gardens. He has used his initiative in providing us with new plants, while consulting us on our preferences, we have been able to trust his personal taste and judgement implicitly in such matters. He has been instrumental in re-landscaping the gardens over the years and we have been totally satisfied with his work.

As a person Adrian Jameson is of excellent character and I can vouch for his utter trustworthiness and would not hesitate in recommending him.
