Removal of totally overgrown hedge, re-landscaping the affected area, including building a 2 tiered raised bed, supplying and re planting hedge. Other general tree pruning and maintenance.
This was a big job. Andy and his team were great. They dealt admirably with numerous changes of heart from us and what was very much a moving feast of a job. He always had helpful suggestions and advice. He was adaptable, staying on site even when what we ultimately asked him to do took days longer than the original request would have. The work was done to a very high standard and always in a very polite and friendly way. Very fine attention to detail and to the finishing touches. The clean up job was superb.

Removal of sheds and felling 7 trees.
Andrew and the team removed 3 sheds from my garden (1 very large) and felled 7 trees (6 pine trees and 1 huge beech tree). They did a good job, were polite, quoted a fair price and finished the whole job in one day as promised, which meant they had to work into the evening. In the process of removing one tree they knocked a light fitting outside of my house, they returned and replaced the light fitting the next day - very fair of them to point it out and fix it straight away. I have recommended A Cut Above to friends and would use them in future.

Landscaping, raised veg beds, new lawn.
This is 2nd time we used A Cut Above. First time round for garden clearance, second time for actual landscaping as we realised it was too big of a job for us. Andy and his team have done amazing job! They are fast, hardworking and very tidy. Andy had great ideas about the design and materials and the end result is just what we were after. If you need anything done in your garden call these guys as no job is too big for them. We will definitely be using them again :)

Cut down two beech trees.
Andrew and his Team did a great job for us. There were all polite and cleared up as they went along. The two beech trees were very large perhaps 60 years old. The weather was very cold and snowing a bit but they kept at it starting at 8 am and working to 6pm. They tidied up virtually in the dark. Excellent service would highly recommend Andrew and his team.

De-jungling my large garden involving several big trees that needed high work, also shaping large specimen shrub, a whole day of heavy work carried out to a fantastic high standard.
Excellent team of professional, courteous and hardworking young men. Arrived exactly on time in tidy uniform. Good selection of their own tools, all well maintained. The task in my very large garden looked overwhelming to me (had been neglected for years and was extremely overgrown - full sized trees, large shrubs, the lot) but Andrew offered sensible advice, which I knew was spot on. The team carried out the work plan efficiently, cheerfully and tidied up after themselves, taking all the off-cuts away. I have a "virtually new" garden, for an extremely good price. They worked all day, I had to beg them to stop for a tea break! I highly recommend this company and would use them again and again.

Bushes cleared, hedges trimmed, fencing.
I would recommend this company to anyone. The work was carried out to my requests and garden was tidy when they were finished. The Guys were courteous and friendly. For the work that was done the price was very reasonable.
