Garden Design

Dale Culbreth of Coastal Tree Care offers a high-quality, personalised service to help you get the most from your garden. We provide a complete end-to-end garden design and installation service, and are happy to consider any size of garden projects, from tiny, contemporary, urban courtyards to large, rambling estates, schools or commercial sites.

Grounds Maintenance

Professional Grounds Maintenance with high quality lawn, hedge, tree and shrub care for clients in the Weymouth area. Whether you have a small garden or a large business premises – let us take the hassle out of maintaining your outdoor space.

We can offer a diverse range of Conservation and Ecology services throughout Dorset, ranging from tree and hedge planting, forestry, scrub management, invasive species management, pesticide application and fencing.

Firewood Logs

We are committed to Sustainable Waste Management – suitable logs are split into firewood or kept as deadwood habitat for invertebrates and small mammals. Chippings are used as mulch or composted – and customers can decide whether they wish to use them.

If you live in the Weymouth area, and sustainability is important to you, we would love to supply you with your seasoned firewood logs. All of ours are sustainably produced by our tree care team, and are seasoned for at least a year.

Why choose Us?

  • Customer satisfaction – we want you to be delighted.
  • Value for money.
  • Reliability – we will not let you down.
  • Unparalleled quality of service.
  • Integrity in everything we do.

What Customers think

The guys took down an ash tree in my rear garden, not an easy job as it was right on the boundary with ornamental planting all around.  You would never have know the tree was there.  Fantastic job, well done fellas, would always recommend you guys!!

Tristan Murless

Dale provided an excellent, friendly and professional service. Felling and disposing of the tall overgrown Leylandii in our garden was full day’s work (and well into twilight, too) but an excellent end result was achieved. The lawn was swept clear of all debris and it was not apparent that Dale and his helper (Sean) had been on site. I would thoroughly recommend to anyone considering this type of work and would certainly not hesitate in using Coastal Tree Care again.

Steve Snowball

Excellent service reasonable cost would highly recommend this firm.

Christine Munroe

Excellent service, very nice guy and amazing value.  5+ stars.  Log delivery.  Loads of wood burning logs for an excellent price, far more than I was expecting!

Paul Cain

Dale cut down lots of tall hedging and overgrown bushes in our garden.  He did a brilliant job.  We’ve also had a load of mixed logs for the fire from him which he delivered very promptly.  He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful.  Would highly recommend.

Helen Rewse
Our garden needed a revamp. We wanted to keep a lawn with mixed borders whilst keeping it light and airy. Dale came up with a garden plan making suggestions on plants and trees enabling low maintenance. As the garden matures we are increasingly pleased with the results. We would have no hesitation in recommending him. 
Angela & Ted Bament
Brilliant job on the trees, thank you so much for leaving everything neat and stacked up that’s all absolutely perfect.
Joe Medreckie
We are absolutely delighted with the work carried out by Coastal Tree Care. Dale was extremely professional throughout, from the quotation through to carrying out the job and the clearing up and ‘carting away’. His job was not made easy due to the rain but he arrived punctually as promised. We would have no hesitation at all in recommending him and would certainly use his services again if the need arose.
Sue Friendship
Coastal Garden Projects carried out a landscaping project which involved parterre beds, raised beds for vegetables, decorative paving, erection of wooden greenhouse and cabin, and making a quirky fence to our specification. We were impressed with the quality of work and attention to detail. We particularly appreciated the flexible approach to our changing needs as the project evolved and we are delighted with the final result.
