Reputations are not built overnight
In Referenceline's view, this track record is more important than the ratings. Don't be impressed by a few old reviews which may not be representative.  Look for firms with a commitment to asking for feedback - good or bad - from their customers.  We recommend that you look for a track record of ratings and reviews in at least 9 of the last 12 months and that you should not be too concerned about an isolated negative review.  Ask the firm for their side of the story.
 


 
Good Practice
Businesses have a legal responsibility to treat you fairly, but it's often hard to know what questions to ask or what standards to expect.  They are the experts and you should be able to rely on them to help you make decisions.  These questions explain the commitments that this business has made to follow a code of practice and they will help you understand what you have a right to expect.

 
Charges: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 100%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 100%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 100%
On completion, did the firm give you a guarantee for a specified amount of time, or usage (where applicable)?
You can see how many customers have said "Yes" in answer to each question, but please don't expect 100% in every case.  Nobody's perfect and some customers may not be completely sure about the answer.  It's more important that you understand these questions and discuss them with the business so that you both agree what good service means for you.  A responsible business will be happy to explain the details to you and it's always better to clarify these points upfront to avoid misunderstandings later on.

Customer Review
 
Our garden was previously divided into a Veggie garden with greenhouse and fruit trees but it had become rather overgrown with brambles and the chicken run was no longer required. The boundary fence was also past its best and very wonky.Time to call in for some professional help! Paul came and visited the garden and given a brief of a tranquil Japanese style garden came up with several designs. The severe weather made their job quite difficult as the ground was a quagmire after lots of rain. The fence was replaced and the old tree stumps were removed by Paul. A beautiful curved white wall was built for a background to a cloud tree. The planting includes acers, bamboo, Himalayan birch trees, and grasses. Paul also created a hard pad which will soon have a wood cabin ''Gallery'' building which will be used to house our ceramic creations.

"Paul was most professional in his site visits explaining each step of the design process, fees and kept us informed as to when work would start and be completed ( giving weather permitting )

I was impressed that each stage of the work went smoothly as the ground was cleared, the fence was erected and then the hard landscaping was carried out for the building 'base preparation' and the white curved wall was built.

Both Paul and Steve were cheerful and worked in a professional and kept the disruption to us to a minimum. Each day they swept up after they had finished their work

The results are spectacular and it has made the garden look spacious and it will be a lot easier to manage now we are reaching old age.
I am really looking forward to seeing the plants grow and the trees come into leaf.

Redesign and build of back garden including patio fencing

"From initial design process to build I found Paul attentive and creative. He spent time getting to understand my ideas and used them to create a garden that I love. Paul adapted and altered the design as I had additional wishes to be added to the garden. I had a confidence in Paul that he knew how to deliver a brief and enjoys creating amazing gardens that are not just beautiful but will grow and develop into a lovely mature garden. Paul was diligent during the build and kept everything tidy. I would have no hesitation to reccomend Paul to anyone looking for a value for money Garden redesign"

Design, landscaping and planting

"I can highly recommend Paul for designing and landscaping. We were looking for someone to come up with a concept for the unusable garden space directly outside our house. Paul very quickly caught onto our brief and designed an amazing space which has completely transformed our house. He did all the landscaping himself with huge attention to detail. The plants he picked fit the look of the property perfectly and we can't wait to watch the area improve over the years as they establish themselves. Paul was a pleasure to have around and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone. "

Patio

"Paul has a very professional approach to his work. This is our first experience of having a patio laid but feel we could not have done any better. We are very happy with the finished result and would recommend this company to others."
