Would like back garden to be easier to garden, with smaller areas of better soil and a small wall removed and slope landscaped
If you want anything done in the garden, don't bother looking any further than Rich Green gardens. Richard was uniformly pleasant, courteous and most of all did an excellent job from start to finish. He and his helper, equally a pleasure to have around, worked consistently and bravely through the appalling weather we have had lately to produce a result that exceeded our expectations, transforming our garden into something more spacious and easier to work. And no nasty surprises in the bill!
it measures about 15 m x 15 m (rough guess) and has brambles and nettles in it. There was a pond that has mostly been filled with gravel there is no water in it. . I would like it cleared of weeds and levelled.
What will probably happen will be that we will want the garden treated so no weeds can grow through a thick membrane with gravel and slabs with pots on them.
quote required for clearance only and then once done we can consider the next phase Customer owns and lives at this property
has quoted for other work I want doing and will be doing it
We want to replace the 130-ft fence that runs along the side of our property, separating it from the driveway to the houses behind. The existing wooden fence is a low, open lattice that provides very little privacy, and some of it is rotten.
We want a replacement fence consisting of wooden panels, 6-ft high for most of the way for privacy, but lower alongside the front garden.
There are shrubs and saplings growing alongside the existing fence. Some of these we wish to keep (a rowan tree, a lilac and a laurel). Most of them we want to get rid of, especially several sycamores, and we want to get this done as part of the fencing work.
Fencing job done on time and within estimate in spite of very bad weather. We are very happy with the work done, and have asked them to quote for two additional jobs.
Reducing height of front hedge by aproximately 15inches
Two good workers ,2and a half hours,£220,a bit costly in my view but the job had to be done.going rate here in Berkshire is quite high for any type of work compared to say my old area ie Norfolk,regards Mr V Barnes
I am looking to purchase fence panels and want someone to put them up, it's only one side of the garden I will provide materials. Someone a gardener said they would do it for £100, which is my budget, however they did not turn up so I am looking for someone else.
Professional, good communication, and an excellent job completed
RELAYING PATIO. To lift up 70 existing pieces of York Stone Riven, 600mm x 600mm, clean off cement and relay on a cement and sand mix then jointed. There is a pond in the patio, 600 x 1200 x 800 deep. This needs draining and the old liner replacing with a new 0.75mm thick black butyl liner. Finally, re-align and fix in place the existing water spout. Please allow for the purchase of approx. four 600 x 600 York Stone Riven to replace any broken ones.
Prompt, courteous service and very reliable. Assessed needs and provided very fast quote. Completed the work quickly and on time and to a high quality of finish. Unreservedly recommended.
We moved to this property last November and we wish to have a patio area together with another paved area and possibly fish pond in the back garden. The small area of lawn will also need returfing.
