I had a huge, overgrown privet hedge that needed to be reduced and had received two or three ridiculously high quotes, I think traders were trying to take advantage of an older woman on her own. I saw Meadowside's advert in the Hill & Hatherley Pages and thought I would give them a try, what a difference from start to finish ! The lady I first spoke to was friendly and helpful and when Yoda came to look at the job he was quite charming so I also asked him about a few bits of tree work. His quote came through promptly and was very reasonable so I accepted, the only problem being that he was fully booked for some time and couldn't do the work until late October but I decided it would be worth waiting. During October I began to think it was too late to cut the hedge because it would take away the birds' winter shelter and be rather bare to look at so the week before he was due I telephoned Yoda to explain this but say that I had realised there was more tree work to be done. He took it in his stride, agreeing that I was probably right about the hedge and suggested that , instead of individual prices, he charged a day rate for himself and his assistant and they got done as much as they could in the time. He and Rick arrived on time, were friendly and helpful, liaised with me all day, did a tremendous amount of work incredibly well, exactly as I asked and left everything tidy. I would thoroughly recommend them for first class work at a reasonable price.
