I needed this work done pretty quickly and Andy fitted it in at short notice for me. He also advised me that he could do the work required without taking the tree down. I totally trust Andy's advice and work and would definitely use him for any of my gardening needs in the future.

Andy and his colleague worked tirelessly from 9am-7pm and even popped back the next morning to pick up the last of the rubble. They were friendly and polite and left the area they had cleared, looking neat and tidy. I had found Greenman through Checkatrade, so had just hoped they would be as good as the reviews suggested. They were. When he came round to quote for the work, Andy was informative and gave sensible guidance as to what did or did not need attention, which saved us time and money. He also broke the work up into stages so that the garden can be gradually transformed as money allows. Recommended!

Andy emailed me a quote two days after coming to look at the job. I was impressed by the quote and we agreed a date to start the work. Andy and his colleague turned up on time and worked extremely hard all day, despite the rain! They completed the job within a day and I was very pleased with the results. They were friendly, professional and efficient. They cleaned up after themselves, even mopping my kitchen floor. I would happily recommend Andy.

I was quoted for half a days work and judging on the work of previous gardeners I wasn't sure if he would get it done in that time and would end up charging me more. He completed on time and the garden looked beautiful afterwards. I would definitely recommend Greenman Garden Services.

I am so pleased with the work Andy has done - he's turned an unused area of my garden into a beautiful, useful space. He was a pleasure to work with, gave me suggestions about types of decking available (who knew there was more than one type?) and from the moment I met him I felt comfortable that he would do a good job and he did.

Andy spent all day tackling my elderly mothers' front and back gardens. Sadly they had become a bit neglected and closely resembled a jungle. One of the hedges was 7 ft tall and all day the wind was very strong. Andy did an excellent job and left the premises in a very tidy condition. Would definately recommend.

I chose Greenman from their positive feedback here, this was a mistake. It was a large job and it became apparent they were out of their depth. They are quite slow workers and would disappear from the job frequently, they would do a short day too, often not starting until after 10am and finishing before 4pm. Part of the job was a patio which was included in the quote but after two weeks the trader said they were unwilling to do it leaving us in a difficult situation. After 3 weeks with very little to show for it. They might be fine for small jobs but I would avoid them altogether.
Customer in Hove, 28 May 2013  
Response from Greenman Garden Services:
The positive feedback received from other customers is no mistake, I am hard-working, reliable and enjoy my work. This was a large job that was well within my remit. The customer knew I am a small business and was advised it would take several weeks to complete the work. I discovered that remedial works would be needed to deal with an existing damp problem, before I could proceed with the patio work. The customer was on holiday for 10 days so I discussed the situation with him on his return. He was unwilling to wait or pay for the extra work required and became increasingly difficult and unpleasant to deal with. In all, we removed four 6 yard skips of concrete and garden waste, terraced the front garden, laid a shed base, cleared and levelled the back garden with no complaints about quality. We would have completed all the work to a high standard had we been permitted to finish the job within a reasonable time frame.

I cannot recommend Greenman Garden services highly enough. They were incredibly hard working, even working in snow and pouring rain. They were polite, courteous and cheerful throughout and when the job threw extra challenges at them (I have an extremely heavy clay soil which is very difficult to work in wet conditions), they took it all in their stride. The garden looks fantastic and I am really happy with it! I would definitely use them again in the future, as would all my neighbours who couldn't believe how hard they worked!

If you are looking for someone you can trust, look no further! Andy is a pleasure to speak to, helpful and full of ideas. He quotes accurately and does the job when he says he will to the standard he says he will do it to. He did an amazing job of clearing my garden and took on other jobs that needed doing. The work is completed to an extremely high standard and I'm thrilled I found him. I can't recommend him or his work highly enough. Thank you Andy!

We are really pleased with the work that was completed on our garden. Andy was great. Keen to listen to our ideas to ensure that we were happy with his work. Our new steps far exceed what we were expecting and look lovely. All pruning was done sensitively so everything looked natural. He also uses green waste disposal services.

We'd discussed what needed to be done and received a quote which they were able to reduce on the day. The guys turned up on time, kept the area clear and tidy, before during and after the job. Took great care with their work and managed (somehow) to avoid any branches falling into the neighbours property as they took out many years of unmanaged growth from some huge trees! And most importantly, the results look fantastic. I wish I'd taken before and after photos.

Andy was quick to respond and to submit a quote. He's hardworking, did long hours and has done a very professional job. He takes pride in his work and wants the customer to have a quality result that will last. He's reliable and when the weather delayed him he kept me informed about when he could finish. I've already asked him to quote for another job and would recommend him to others. His quote was the cheapest of the 3 I received.
