About Us


Having been established for over 40 years we take pride in the work we carry out, donít just take our word for it, read our customer reviews at referenceline.
We have full insurance and all our staff are CRB checked. We will be happy to visit you to discuss your detailed requirements and provide an estimate for the work to be carried out.
Let us turn your dream garden into reality, transforming an overgrown patch into a turfed area to give you a lawn to be proud of, creating a green oasis which can soon become your pride and joy or just helping to make your garden more manageable. We are also licenced waste carriers, so you can be assured that any waste is disposed of at a licenced tip.
     
 
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: 99%
Before starting work, did the firm explain the charges including labour, materials, callout & VAT (as appropriate)?
 
Timing: 97%
Before starting work, did the firm explain when the work was expected to start and finish?
 
Payment: 89%
Before starting work, did the firm explain how to pay (e.g. cash, cheque, etc.)?
 
Reliable: 99%
During the work, did the firm keep their promises, explaining and agreeing any changes about the work, costs or timing where necessary?
 
Invoice: 99%
On completion, did the firm give you an invoice showing the cost of materials, labour and VAT?
 
Guarantee: 58%
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.

Removing old turf. Rotivating the ground then putting top soil down and levelling.

"After speaking to Andrew on the phone he came to see me to price the work. Such a nice man and explained everything that was needed to be done. The work was carried out very quickly by 3 delightful chaps. No mess at all and everything cleared very efficiently. They even made the time to make a fuss of my dog. The turf was then laid again very quickly and absolutely no mess again. They even offered to wash the patio even though it was quite clean as they had covered it. I would recommend this company to anyone and would have no hesitation in using them again if ever I needed to. Many thanks from Tina and John."
