All quotes are carried out by Simon and often these can be provided virtually. Simply get in touch to let us know what you require and then send through photos and/or video of your garden.

If Simon does need to visit your garden, any discussions can be had at a safe social distance of 2 metres, or by talking through windows.

A written quote will be provided by email, with photos and or video to illustrate if necessary.

All payments for work are by cheque posted to our office or bank transfer or by Direct Debit. There is no cash handling.
