Spring garden tidy up.
Sol Gardens gave me the best price for the job, but also he was the only one who quoted me for the job to show any concern for my pets. That sealed the deal. Ben worked really hard and did a great job. I am delighted, I only wish he lived closer so we could see him more often.

Garden maintenance.
I used Sol Gardens to give my garden a bit of an overhaul as it hadn't been seen to in 6 months. Ben gave an accurate estimate and I was very pleased with the work carried out. Ben is a very knowledgeable horticulturist, which was important to me as my previous gardener liked weeding out plants I had just put in! I also wanted advice on where to put new plants and rearrange current ones. Ben spent the day getting the garden back into good condition. I have asked Ben to stay on and undertake my gardens regular maintenance as I was so pleased with his work.

Turned my jungle into a garden again.
Absolutely outstanding! Ben is polite, thoughtful, exceptionally knowledgeable and a professional to the core. I was stunned at the amount he achieved in the one VERY full day he was with me. He is an absolute grafter and turned an overgrown patio garden covered in garden and building debris back into a totally clear and well presented garden. I can't recommend Ben enough. I already have him booked in again to do some additional work in light of how good he is and will have him back at regular intervals to keep it in check and nurse it all to full potential. Thanks, Ben.

Back and front hedges/borders and trees pruned as well as through cleaning of paved lawn back and front
Very polite, hardworking and more then demonstrated his expertise. Worked around various commitments we had (kids drop offs, Car Mots etc) and managed to do the whole lot exactly to time and cost quoted. We will definitely be using his services again. Turned and unkept mess into something my wife and I are very happy with. Thanks Ben!

Garden and lawn preparation for winter.
Ben was very knowledgeable and inspired confidence. I had tried other gardeners but none were as reliable or as efficient. He turned up promptly even starting early to meet my work commitments. I will certainly be trying to establish a long term relationship and service.

Re-arranging of garden.
A job well done. Moving two mature rose trees and relaying lawn in the gap was a big job but Ben made it seem easy. Very happy with the results and we are using Ben again in the near future for more work in our garden. We would recommend him to anyone.

Mow lawn, weeding, pruning, cutting down large weeds at back and front of gardens.
I was very pleased with the work that was done. Ben worked extremely hard, even when it started to rain, everything that he said needed doing when he gave me an estimate, he did. My garden is a pleasure to look at now.
