About Beorn Wilde

Beorn (“Bee-yawn”) Wilde is an environmentally conscious garden maintenance business operating in Solihull and the surrounding areas. We take great pride in being able to bring an affordable, high quality and reliable service to our local community and our passion shines front and centre of every job we take on.

The global rise in the use of chemical pesticides has been scientifically linked to the systematic eradication of our pollinating insects, which has had the knock-on effect of diminished harvests leading to food shortages. Unless we adapt to a more conscientious way of living, this is only going to get worse. Therefore, despite being fully trained and qualified in the ‘safe’ application of chemical herbicides, we consciously choose NOT to offer this as part of the Beorn Wilde garden maintenance service.

Instead of using toxic applications that address the problems that gardeners face only on a superficial level, we approach the issues holistically using biocontrol, polycultures (companion planting), natural barriers/predators and good old-fashioned hard graft. We do all of this with the aim of solving gardening problems both naturally and permanently.

Instead of eradicating garden pests, we take inspiration from forest gardening and the natural world, with the goal of boosting the ecological defences of the gardens we tend so that alternative, harmful methods are not necessary.

The word ‘organic’ often incurs a premium. However, we believe that organic and environmentally friendly garden services should be available to everyone at a price that remains both fair and affordable.

We think global and act local.
