Robert S Frier, MSGD – Member of Society of Garden Designers.

I would just like to say thank you very much for leaving me with such a wonderful garden that is finished to such a high standard. Your and your team were good time-keepers, courteous, hard working and very personable. The care you took in all aspects of the work was a delight to see and one will enjoy the benefit of in the future. Your advice on, and accommodation of last minute changes, including unexpectedly fitting in landscaping the front garden too, was never too much trouble for you. You kept me so well informed about what you were doing and when. We always new when you should and shouldnnt be here, the fact we couldn’t be in all the time was never a problem for you and we felt more than comfortable giving you complete control over access. I do not think words can express how strongly I would recommend you to others and therefore I will try it in Ebay terms and score you an A+++++++++.

Fron initial discussions to completion of the garden, the process went very smoothly. David delivered the work comfortably within time and budget. Both during planning and execution David proved flexible and a good communicator, fully discussing matters where decisions were required. The work was planned well with contractors and materials appearing on site in a timely manner. David and his workers were punctual, courteous and reliable. the materials used in the garden were of good quality and the standard of workmanship high.
