We just received this fabulous Testimonial for our latest Garden Decking Stratford Upon Avon Landscaping

Honoured to receive this fabulous Testimonial on Friday from Emma & Andy who'm we have been doing some Tiered Decking for... we haven't had time yet to go & take some 'finished' photo's but are hoping to do so this week for now we've attached an 'interim pic' of this lovely decking job for really great people ...  Big thank you Emma & Andy from us all here at Team IG

Subject: Testimonial 

I just wanted to write and say thank you so much to everyone at Ideal Gardening.

From the moment Clive came round to quote I felt our garden was in safe hands! Over the past few years we have had several different tradesmen working on our house and have been let down for one reason or another and so we were very particular about who we decided to go with.  I am so happy that we have finally found a company who has restored our faith in being able to find good customer service, reliable workmen using quality products at a reasonable price!!

The finished result is fantastic and we are so pleased with our gorgeous garden

Thank you so, so much Clive

Andy and Emma Collins

Such Kind customers to send this lovely testimonial for Fencing Stratford Upon Avon

We are very grateful to receive this email from last week's clients Karen & Joe, they have a beautiful in bloom garden & Team IG were really careful to not damage any flowers, plants & shrubs (not so easy sometimes), it pleases us to know this couple chose to go with concrete posts & boards, means less work for us in the future though as conc posts don't rot & needless to say to receive this email means so much to our Team.

Thank you Karen & Joe

Subject: Replacement Garden Fence Testimonial

Hi Kay and Clive,

Just to let you know how pleased we are with the replacement fence you completed for us. 
We are very happy with it and so glad we went with the concrete posts and gravel boards. 
It has made such a difference. Our next door neighbour also commented on it and was happy with the result from his side too. 
He also mentioned how efficient the Team was in carrying out the job. 

Any jobs we need doing in the future we will be only too happy to contact you.

Thank You once again.

Karen and Joe
