We asked to reschedule our work and although pretty booked up, a new date was found for us very quickly. The work - tree reduction and shaping- was done to a very professional standard and our preferences and exact specification were checked throughout the process. The end result was excellent and our garden was left very tidy. The work was completed to the quote we were given. We have used JM Forbes Garden Solutions on several occasions and have always been delighted with the service provided by this professional and friendly team.

Cutting Back Leylandii Hedge to Boundary Fence

We were impressed by John’s professionalism when carrying out the initial site survey and in submitting a fair quote, to carrying out the work. He and his team arrived on schedule, and efficiently and skilfully undertook the substantive task of pruning the overgrown Leylandii hedge back to the boundary fence. We were grateful that John was amenable to agreeing to our specific request in respect of pruning all overhanging branches to the exact boundary line; this was to enable us to maximise available space to plant our own hedge. John and his colleague also provided very helpful advice in respect of the ground requirements for planting a Portuguese Laurel hedge, for which we have asked him to provide a further quote. In particular, the team worked with incredible speed and were respectful of our property and highly courteous. We would highly recommend John and his team for tree pruning.

Another fantastic job from John and the team. Removed top from very large eucalyptus, crown from a sycamore and tidied up a flowering cherry. All work performed safely , efficiently and to a very high standard. No mess. Price is competitive and worth every penny. Why use anyone else if you can use John and his team. I wish all contractors could be this good!

Asked for a quote from John to remove a tree in my garden which was in an awkward position in the corner, near to the boundary fence. Very competitive price given for the work, which was carried out a few days later. The men were punctual, polite and hardworking. The tree was removed without any damage to my shed, or the surrounding fences/gardens of my neighbours. Only took a few hours and all debris was taken away. You wouldn't know they had even been there. Fantastic service, and I have no hesitation in recommending them.

I had previously used John to remove an enormous hedge along the front of my property and because of that excellent job I asked John and the team to return to remove 14 conifers and stump grind 1 large stump. The work was brilliantly executed in an efficient and professional manner and above all tree work was safe. Site was cleared of all waste and left very tidy. John and his team are both courteous and professional. I will use him for all of my future tree and hedge work.

Garden Solutions cut down three trees. One very large tree 80ft and two smaller trees 20ft. All the work was done to an agreed schedule and budget. Garden solutions team were very polite, quiet and extremely careful when cutting the branches and landing them into my garden. We have sheds of wood and brick in neighbours gardens and they were extremely careful not to damage any of their property. My neighbours and I were very impressed with their skill and team work. They all worked very well together and were polite at all times. Some neighbours even took photos and a video. It was amazing!

The work involved the felling of a 75 foot tall willow tree which was potentially a danger to buildings in adjoining properties. It was carried out in about 6 hours by 5 men with no damage.
