Replace and enlarge patio

Chris from absolute gardens was the go to guy when I needed my old patio replaced and enlarged. He listened to what I wanted and explained what he could do and gave me price , which we agreed on and a date was set for the work to commence. His team of Pete and Jack were very friendly and arrived on time and set to work straight away. Even when the weather conspired against them it didn't dampen their spirits. The work was completed within time and to a high standard, they even had time to sort out my rotary washing line. All in all a fantastic new patio has been delivered for us to enjoy the rest of the summer.

Transformation!

We met with Chris after reading Which reviews and the brief was to transform our elevated garden plot of solid clay, flint and weeds into a useable space and to replace a boundary wall to create privacy. After three weeks of extreme hard graft (in extreme heat!), Chris' team of Dan and Yani did just that. The job was complicated due to the levels and steep steps up to the plot but it didn't phase these professionals. The guys were punctual, dedicated to the task, giving advice and suggestions along the way. We are now enjoying our beautiful new garden terrace and are very proud of what they have created. We would highly recommend Chris and his team.

The missus decided that the patio needed replacing as the existing was way past its sell-by date and therefore contacted a local trader, Absolute Gardens. Chris, the owner, came round to inspect the site last summer and due to what was required, it was agreed that the work would be done this summer when the ground had had a chance to dry out as the house has no side access and the rubble would need to go out through the garage. We received the phone call a few weeks back and the digging out started on the Monday. Jack and Pete were the combination who were here for the duration with Chris making the occasional visit to check progress. Despite the inevitable dust, the pair were as tidy as possible and appraised us of what was happening. They were also very courteous throughout

The task was to remove 50 year old crazy paving and two sets of steps from the house, removal of stone raised bed wall and erect two trellis panels. The complications were the variance of levels and slopes and a tricky corner, also a lady very prone to change her mind. We had no set ideas so Chris's expertise and professional to his fingertips guided us to a lovely new larger patio with smart brickwork and safer steps. The stars of the show were the two hard working men who completed this work in the hottest weather we have had for years. Peter and Jack are two of the nicest, most courteous and helpful people you could have working on you home. Peter consulted and informed us every step of the way. They even carried in my shopping! Oh! by the way the husband of said lady is also delighted with the end result and maybe a bit relieved his wife is! Thankyou Chris, Peter and Jack.

Having had a new conservatory built we now needed our old patio taken up and reshaped. We found Chris very helpful with ideas for shape and lighting etc. I was able to view a garden they were working on and this helped when choosing slabs. The work was finished about a year ago now and still looks lovely which is why we are now asking for another area of our garden to be done by his team who we always found polite, hardworking and tidy.

Chris and his team created a large wrap around patio for us last year. From the initial contact through to on going garden maintenance he has been nothing but professional. He helped us choose the right paving stones for our patio and advised us which ones would be harder to maintain than others. The quality of the finished product is fantastic. Total attention to detail and very hard working - in all weathers! It looks really superb. Can't recommend highly enough! Clare Chappell

A large part of my garden had become overgrown with bramble and other weeds, a tree had outgrown its spot and a boundary fence was nearing the end of its life. The Absolute Gardens team sorted all this out exactly as agreed and left me with renovated areas of the garden ready for planting. Dan, Yani, Stephen and Aaron were all very hard workers who were reliable, left a clear and tidy site and took a pride in their work. Chris was great in advising me on the job at the outset and in calling round to make sure that the guys were clear on what was required. I have already recommended Absolute Gardens to friends and will have no hesitation is using them again for future garden projects. Book in advance - their services are in demand - and rightly so!

Having lived with our weird shaped decking for a few years we decided to upgrade to a paved patio, we had a number of quotes from various people but when we spoke to Chris we decided to go with Absolute gardens, nothing seemed to be a problem and we felt confident they would do a great job.... we were right we now have a lovely level slate patio with a couple of steps down to the garden. Dan and his colleague were helpful, polite and hard working, we are really pleased with the work they have done and wouldn't hesitate in recommending them to anyone! Great job guys, thanks!!

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.
