Missed opportunity for regular work from me as a property developer I don't like chasing tradesmen! we had a time and date agreed fri 9am. An all day job which mean I could go to work and leave them to it. I made contact a few days to confirm again based on the 1st job being deferred at the time we wanted to enjoy the garden. Only to find a job was booked before mine and was told they would come at 12pm clearly I would not be in!! I am annoyed I wasted my time when I could have had the garden sorted.
leveling and paving or decking a small area and creating tiered beds on a slope.
Norbert understood what I wanted and also made useful suggestions for design and materials. The plans and pricing were clear. Communication was great throughout the project
The team carried out the work extremely professionally and were very conscientious. I am very happy with the end result and would use them again for other garden work.
I need a small lawn area to be mown and tidied up (weeds pulled up etc). It is VERY manageable just grown during the last few months. Also need a hedge trimmed.
Arrived on time, was friendly and professional and carried out work required within the specified timeframe. Very flexible and accommodating. Provided lots of useful tips and advice on garden maintenance. Would definitely recommend and use again in future.
Advice, design knowledge, layout and implementation. Can maintain myself. Large garden
Phil Paton was thorough, knowledgeable, professional and full of advice and help and that was just at the viewing and briefing stages. I didn't engage his services this time around but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a garden designer and project manager.
We are buying a new flat and looking for clearance of a garden that has been left to grow over the last 6 months.
Garden is (very) roughly 4.5x3.5m and will require cutting back and some junk removing.
We plan to complete the sale by 5 Oct, so will be able to arrange a viewing from this point for a full quote.
Marco offered us 3 options for clearing and prepping our garden. Arrived on time, with all the tools for the job, worked solidly and without any fuss and left everything nice and tidy at the end of the day, with lots of advice for maintaining our garden in the future. Really pleased with his work and general approach.
Front of terraced house hedge needs trimming, rear garden fig tree needs cutting back (Around 10 foot at the moment!). Will need serious ladder and potentially chainsaw/ serious gear to do this - strong shears may not be enough.
Dan was a very quick worker and punctual, much appreciated!
I have just moved into a new home and the wisteria/clematis on the outside of the house has gone a bit mad! I don't currently have a ladder so am looking for someone to cut it all back for me as soon as possible.
Leo was great - very polite, efficient and worth employing.
I need a gardener or a joiner to put up wooden garden fencing on both sides of the garden with fence posts. The garden is on a slope at some pioint and I would like 4 fence panels either side and the fence post sunk in concrete mix.
Great job with my garden fence by Trevor at Swaisland. Not the easiest job to do but completed on time and very professional at an affordable price. Would thoroughly recommend him.
We want to refashion the front pathway of our property: - Steps leading from our front door - Pathway from steps to road/pavement - Perhaps side/front area also So we would like to get some quotes for the work.

I would like to create a path, maybe with bricks, the length of the garden. Currently there is a dip where we (the dog and us) go up and down the garden so it may need leveling. I may also want to lay some turf and re-do a raised bed made from bricks but which is slowly disintegrating.
