I used the services of All About Gardens in October 2011 and February 2012, and shall be using them again in November, to complete a substantial project – restoration of a small mixed broadleaf woodland area (1 ½ acres) that was completely overgrown and had not been properly managed for over 20 years.

Robin and Mike were excellent in providing advice, explaining the work to be undertaken and then carrying it out in phases according to the plan of work we agreed. What had been a dark area because of the thick canopy of trees, and with almost impenetrable bramble and holly, is now a lovely space, with a variety of trees, natural paths, and the small stream is now visible.

Robin and Mike are very knowledgeable, qualified horticulturalists and Robin is a landscape architect. Not only do they have a sound knowledge base, but they are exceptionally hard workers and are extremely enthusiastic about the work they do. They also work hard to reduce costs wherever possible.
I do not hesitate in recommending them for any horticultural work.
