    10Verified Review

    Calvin and his team are very polite and very accommodating. We got two nests of wasps in the back of the garden where the new fence was going to be built, Calvin got stung by wasps multiple times while he was carrying out the work. He didn’t make any complaints and simply called his friend to come to our garden to deal with the wasps. He is very easy to communicate with and the work was done professionally. I would definitely recommend him.

    Calvin was fantastic and so accommodating and went the extra mile by going back to suppliers to pick up 2 extra gravel boards to make the fence the same level.So great to deal with a genuine family business with old fashioned care towards customer satisfaction. Highly recommend Bill

Company info

Hi there, my name is Calvin I’m a family man from Watford. 

I specialise in Fencing which from a young age I was taught by my Grandad who owned his own fencing company many years ago.

I have 20 years’ experience in fencing.

I also specialise in all gardening work and rubbish clearances which from the age of 21 have worked with a couple of gardening companies which taught me everything there is to know about all aspects of gardening.

After years of working for other people, I finally got the confidence to form my own company something I've wanted to do for a while now so I can provide a better life for my family and can eventually pass on to my 4 boys so THE MAN THAT CAN was created.

2 of my sons currently work with me and will eventually go on their own when the time is right.

I started the company 6 years ago and the services I provide are all types of Garden Fencing i.e., Larch lap panels, close boarded panels, close boarded featheredge bays, picket Fencing and gates etc. with all types of concrete or wooden posts and gravel boards that are all provided by a high quality Fencing company I've used for a long time so I get a good rate for high quality materials.

For the gardening side I provide any type of garden maintenance, tidy up and garden clearances and I'm also experienced in laying turf, sleeper walls.

I also do rubbish clearances and I have a waste Carriers license (which I can show on request) so can take away any type of rubbish and furniture.

All my work is carried out in a quick and efficient manner and to a high standard and we are only happy when you the customer are happy.

Hope this gives you a little insight of what we are about and hope to hear from you soon thanks.
