Passionate green thumbs Jules Swindlehurst and Dee Burghall joined forces in July 2014 to establish Weeding Women Mandurah. The duo covers the entire Peel region.
Horticulture has always been in Jules’ blood, being part of a family of green thumbs and raised in a farming community filled with orchards and vines. Dee too fell in love with gardening at a young age, remembering her childhood in a typical Aussie backyard – with a large quarter-acre block, complete with chooks, a big shed and a Hills Hoist!
More about Jules & Dee
Jules, a qualified horticulturist, draws on her love of more formal garden styles, influenced by English landscaping and her birthplace, New Zealand. “I love being outdoors and thrive on the challenges gardening offers, particularly working with a garden as it evolves and improves,” says Jules.
Jules’s career has seen her work in council gardens and streetscapes. She is passionate about permaculture, sustainable living and organic gardening, and enjoys the community aspect of gardening.
Born and raised in Perth, Dee’s gardening background is in nurseries and floristry. “I fell in love with gardening at a young age, influenced by the typical Aussie backyard – the large quarter-acre blocks with chooks, a big shed and a Hills Hoist. We always gardened as a family on the weekend and everyone would chip in to help.”
Having worked as a commercial cleaner in the past, Dee appreciates the importance of the attention to detail. “For me, it’s the little things that make a big difference – rolling up the hose, sweeping under the mat, putting the newspaper by the door,” said Dee.
