We are always super-excited to have super-excited customers! One of the lucky-draw winners of our birthday competition held on Life & Style Radio in March, recently enjoyed an extra garden maintenance visit as her prize. She shared her joy with us in the following comments:

“I just wanted to say what an awesome job your team did here today. 

What an amazing bunch of people they are, and they hardly drew breath all day! Worked so hard in the heat (and despite our resident green mamba who made an early appearance)! They are an absolute credit to you and could not do enough to make sure I was happy with everything. Thank you.

Thank you too for the Easter basket – we have planted it into one of the empty pots outside and my own new pots look fabulous all planted up.

Thanks again for the great service and please pass on sincere thanks to your fabulous team.”
