I am very puzzled by the raving reviews here and unless my experience is highly unusual, which I doubt, I cannot recognise the service I received. Ian's lads were very friendly and professional at the time but they left the garden in a bigger mess than I thought was needed. They took down a massive sycamore tree and some damage was expected but I don't understand why the flower bed on the other side of the garden was damaged, for example. Worse was the way they removed the protection cover, stripping large chunks of paint from the skirting boards. But since the the lads were really nice and I didn't want to ruin anyone's reputation, I was going to overlook all that. However, shortly after the job was finished, the stump started to grow back so I called Ian. Ian seems to have some poor communication skills and your voice message/SMS/email will go days, even weeks without a response. But this was beyond acceptable (perhaps because it was a "finished" job he had to come back to?). Eventually I told him I was giving up chasing him and he finally showed up and finished the job. So great, we can move on from that. But I cannot recommend his services because dealing with his company was a frustrating experience. In hindsight, I would have preferred to pay a few hundred pounds more to get a better customer service and be 100% sure that the service on the ground was as good as can be.
