Grass and lawn maintenance during the summer months. Power cleaning my large areas of paving slabs. Removing unwanted green house and resowing area with lawn seed.

"Stuart has been tending my garden from early spring. He is efficient, very reliable and quietly gets on with the job. He has cleaned up my paving slabs and removed an unwanted green house with no fuss as well as grass cutting. It was a relief to find a gardener who will tackle those little extra things. With winter on the way I hope to employ him with some fencing work that needs doing. I find his prices very reasonable and have no hesitation in recommending him to any one in need of gardening services."

"We would highly recommend Cochran Garden Services. Stuart is extremely professional in his approach and very conscientious in the work that he carries out. He communicates well, and always ensured that we knew exactly when he would be available and how long the work would take. Stuart thereafter worked to the timescales agreed.
Our garden has been transformed as a result of his work!"

Grass cutting and strimming lawns and verges.

"Cochran Garden Services are new to the area and have quickly built up a customer base through word of mouth which reflects the good quality of work carried out.
We have found them to be efficient in the service provided and always turning up regularly and at expected times.
They have good and reliable equipment and the quality of their work has so far been excellent.
Stuart Cochran is very approachable and willing to undertake extra tasks as required.
Overall it has been a pleasure to have him around and he has kept the place very tidy."
