Absolutely Fantastic!

My garden needed a a huge overhaul, and having spoken with a few companies I chose Chris from Absolute Gardens..... and I'm so glad I did. Not once through the 6 week project did I ever worry about quality of work or progress. the work ethic of the team ( I mostly had Chris and Yani) was phenomenal, they worked so hard and to such a high standard that even my ex army elderly father was impressed (he couldn't fault them)! My garden is large, terraced and on clay (so difficult soil), but Chris and Yani overcame any issue they faced, and Chris made suggestions along the way which were welcomed, as he has a brilliant eye for detail, and could see potential which I had overlooked. The end result was stunning and it is now a pleasure to look out on to a garden with beautiful hard and soft landscaping, and I know that the stonework will last a lifetime. I was so impressed I've rebooked Absolute to come back and do my front garden wall, and also to come in 4 times a year to keep on top of things. I really can't fault this company and would not hesitate to recommend them. I work hard for my money, and I know that the end result Chris achieved was worth every penny!!

Removal of old fencing and erection of new fencing - Alan and Marion Clifford

Having been let down by two previous garden companies - they didn't turn up to give estimates as promised - we decided to phone Absolute Gardens. Chris booked an appointment and came at the time arranged. He was very pleasant and explained the different types of fencing to us and showed us different types on the laptop. Having chosen the fence he sent an acceptable estimate to which we agreed. The fencing work was carried out during the very cold period in December. The men never complained about the weather they, just got on with the job in hand. The work was carried out both efficiently and to our total satisfaction. When the men left each day it was as if they hadn't been there. They cleaned and tidied everything before leaving our property, even down to sweeping the kitchen floor. The work was carried out tidily with minimal disruption and damage to the plants in the garden. We have a fish pond, which could have been a problem, but they solved that by covering it and no damage was down either to the pond or the fish. They worked throughout the day and were always cheerful and pleasant and uncomplaining about the cold conditions and very wet soil they had to dig for the fence posts. The men worked as a team - they never appeared to communicate instructions to each other - it was as if they knew what they had to do and "got on with it". We would recommend Absolute Gardens for their efficiency, workmanship, friendliness and politeness. A great job by a great company.

Landscaping and log cabin base
Customer Service

We approached Absolute Gardens having heard good reviews of their work. We wanted to change the layout of our patio at the same time as changing the slabs themselves. We took on board Chris' ideas and recommendations and it quickly became clear he knew his stuff. We also wanted to build a log cabin and a shed at the bottom of our garden so needed two concrete bases built. On top of the two main projects we had some old garden walls removed and replaced with sleepers, a hedge removed and replaced with a fence and a pergola built on the new patio. All of these were carried out well and have dramatically improved our back garden. Our house had just been re rendered and our requests for care to be taken during the patio laying stage were carefully adhered to. Dan and his team are very courteous and were very tidy throughout the job which took about 6 weeks. Dan has some good ideas and is clearly passionate about his work. The process from quoting to finishing the job was carried out in a very professional manner and we would not hesitate in recommending them.

New Hedge

Dan and his colleague removed a long line of fencing which had some stubborn posts and concrete! They were diligent in preparing the ground for our Cherry Laurel hedge which was suggested and sourced by Chris, the owner, whose ideas were very helpful. Dan also extended our shed base ready for our new larger shed. They were punctual, polite and hard working and the price was reasonable. Would definitely recommend them.

Chris and his team have successfully transformed both our back and front gardens. We’re on a sloping plot and they have installed terracing that provides useable spaces and beds that we can now plant up with ease. While we had vague ideas of what we wanted from our garden, Chris was able to respond to our sketchy thoughts with a solid design plan. The work on the back garden was completed a few years ago and they have recently completed the front. On both occasions the work plan was discussed with awareness of how the weather would potentially affect the timetable. When working on the back we had one of the longest periods of snow on the ground, but as it had been anticipated the programme continued with awnings and heaters on hand while the patio was laid. A few years on it still looks great. We have always found Chris and his team professional and courteous, easy to get along with and keen to get stuck into the job in hand.

I am absolutely delighted with my front garden, a real transformation which a lot of people have commented on. When Chris quoted for this job he came up with ideas and solutions which gave me confidence that he was a true professional and knew his job. Dan oversaw the job and worked with another colleague, he had patience helping me choose the right paving, They worked hard and well together, they always tidied and cleaned up at the end of each day. Dan is a perfectionist and clearly takes pride in his work, Altogether a job very well done. I would certainly use Absolute Gardens again and have no hesitation in recommending them.

Chris and his team have just completed a patio and low wall for us. Chris is very knowledgeable and advised on the best plan for the area. We trusted him completely to choose the right bricks and slabs and they work perfectly. All the team were reliable, polite and extremely hard working. We are very happy and have no hesitation in recommending Absolute Gardens. Will be using them again in the future for a couple more projects.

Chris the owner provided excellent help and advice on the work we required in our front garden. We were allocated a team of workers, led by Dan, who were professional and diligent in completing the hard landscaping and fencing work. Chris was always on hand to monitor progress and ensure that the work was of the highest standard. A very friendly and helpful company. Eamon Connolly 22/7/17

Chris and his team worked tirelessly to clear our garden and build a bespoke privacy screen, large raised patio area, pergola and concrete base for the new summer house. Dan in particular was great and has great attention to detail. It's hard to find someone who you would trust for such a big job and we are very happy with the final result from Absolute Gardens. They used high quality materials and it was all at a good price. Highly recommend and have already referred them to friends!
