Vialii Garden Services (previously Wee County Gardening) was born in January 2006 and has developed a loyal customer base for garden maintenance.
We are keen organic gardeners and care about the environment and nature and, where possible, incorporate these aspects into our work, whether it’s using local materials, plants which attract wildlife or encouraging pesticide-free practises.
At Vialii Garden Services, we believe strongly in excellent quality, professional and reliable service and strive to keep all of our clients happy. All of our team are fully trained and knowledgeable and we are fully insured. The name ‘Vialii’ (we pronounce it vee-ya-lay) is taken from a favourite flower of ours, the Primula Vialii (the plant is pronounced vee-ya-lee-eye). A beautiful and unusual form of primrose, the two-toned columnar flowers look very like little red hot pokers. Read on to meet Team Vialii…
Business owner Michael Burt’s background is as a Structural Engineer but he decided to take the leap into running his own gardening business in 2006. Already a keen gardener, Michael decided to make his hobby a full time business and launched Wee County Gardening. WCG, which rebranded as Vialii in 2008, quickly became an established and trusted brand providing garden maintenance services throughout the central belt. Michael liaises with all the clients providing all the information they require about costs and team visits.
Jill worked in Retail for over 17 years as a buyer before having Lulu in 2012 and deciding to join the family business. Jill works closely with Michael on all areas of both Vialii Garden Services and sister company, Vialii Garden Design. Whilst you are unlikely to see her out with a mower you will find her busy with billing and marketing as well as behind the scenes work on accounts and HR.
Lulu is Head Blogger for Vialii Garden Services. She regularly writes about fun things to do in the garden, shares unusual information you might not know, yummy recipes and pretty much anything else which is fun and relevant. With the emphasis on fun! If you want to read Lulu’s latest blogs then click here and remember to sign up to follow the blogs and be kept up to date with the latest happenings in Lulu & Tilda’s Garden.
Like her sister, Tilda has no choice but to love gardens and particularly loves chasing her sister around gardens and playing peek a boo round trees. She is also following in her big sister’s footsteps and regularly helps out with the blog, making sure the emphasis is firmly on having fun in the garden!
Ruairidh joined us in 2017 and was quickly promoted to Supervisor the following year. Ruairidh is a great asset ensuring all our clients’ gardens are kept spic n span. From a farming background in the Highlands, Ruairidh has a natural love of being outdoors. On his down time from Vialii he likes fly fishing, including coaching others, and has a keen interest in classic cars.
Martin joined Team Vialii in 2018 and brings with him a wealth of experience from working with his dad in his garden maintenance business. From a perfectly mown lawn to keeping your prized shrubs in tip-top condition, Martin will ensure you don’t need to worry about your garden. When he’s not looking after your outdoor space he will likely still be outdoors, whether it be fishing, camping, hill-walking or jogging.
Calum joined the maintenance team in the summer of 2018 bringing a healthy crop of experience from his time working in gardens in both the UK and Australia. He prides himself on his customer experience and is a great addition to our young, vibrant maintenance team. When he isn’t gardening, Calum enjoys football, watching sports and reading a good book.
