Testimonials 2017

Mr & Mrs Cooper, Hedge End. December 2017 

“Liz and I thought it was only right that we should give you a little feedback on the recent renovation of our garden. It took us a long time to actually take the plunge and commit to having the work done, the old garden was something that Liz had created from scratch and it was much loved.
From the first morning when Matt and Will arrived and were introduced to us we were impressed by their manners, enthusiasm and commitment. The tireless effort and skill they displayed was outstanding, everything we asked of them they undertook with genuine pride. The finished garden is excellent and we will hopefully enjoy it for many years to come. Please pass on our heartfelt gratitude to the lads.”

James & Liz McCarthy, Southampton. August 2017

“I can’t believe it was a year ago you all started work on the garden, time really has flown. I thought you might like to see what it looks like now. It is really coming along nicely. I need to re-do the central border as that doesn’t work as it is getting more sunlight than I thought it would but the rest is really doing well. It has been such a lovely place to relax in and totally what I was after. Thank you for all your patience with me in the design process and support during the build and to Andy and Ashley for creating me a stunning garden.”
