I need a garden boundary fence. At the moment my boundary is a thick bramble hedge which you will need to cut down before any fencing work can be done. The earth behind has fallen away and as I don't want to lose any of my garden,, the fence posts will have to be set into the side of the rhyne itself.
Services required: hedge trimming Approximate length of garden: up to 10m / 30ft I would like the tradesman to take care of waste disposal. Additional information: I would like the hedge in the back garden cut back. The height is okay - I just want it cut back from the fence and above the shed. It is overgrown branches and brambles. The garden is accessible from a side gate. I would like the waste removed as part of the job.
Did a great job and was able to complete it within the timescale I required.
I have two wooden gates (6ft each) and two gate posts (2.4m) that I would like installed on my drive (Tarmac) including the holes being dug.
I had two gates installed on my drive and they look fantastic. GM landscapes completed the job within a week of accepting. I would definitely recommend them as they provided excellent value for money. I will be using them again!!
My back hedge is composed of a few nice plants but mostly dead tree trunks (Small) and ivy. I suppose its about 40 feet long and 2 foot deep.
I will be replacing the hedge with climbers etc but in the mean time need a boundary and some privacy.
Andrew Mead contacted me straight away and even though he was in the midldle of a home move, he came, advised and quoted me. The job was tough but he stayed with the project until it was completed. I would use Andrew again!

Wooden fence 13.5m long & approx 1.8m tall. Would like to have 100mm wooden post or concrete posts. Fence is in two parts and ground is mostly level, 0,5m fall over 10m
We need a wooden deck building approx 4m x 6m, raised 2 foot off of the ground. There will need to be railings aaround 2 sides. We will need 2 steps up from the deck to a door and 2 steps off of the deck to the ground level.
Hi we have purchased a run down cottage which has been left empty for nearly a year now. There is no back garden just front that needs clearing before we can get a professional gardner in to have a look what can be done.
Some knowledge of plants would help at this stage as we do not want to get rid of good plants. There is alot of digging to be done as well as clearing.
