Richard has been to us on 3 occasions. We were happy enough with the gardening he did but on the third occasion invoiced us for 2 hours instead of 1.5 hours.
When i asked why Richard informed me that he charges for a minimum of 2 hours gardening. He informed that when he initially quoted us that he had informed he charges for a minimum of 2 hours. That was not the case if he had mentioned that i would not have offered him the job. We do not have money to throw away for time not worked.I wasn't impressed and informed him we would pay for the time he was here. I also pointed out that there was further weeding he could have done in that 30 mins that he had missed.
He promptly reinvoiced us for the hour and half he was here.
Thought i should make potential customers aware of this

We used this company to prune our Bramley apple tree. Prompt reply to ad, and charges per hour mentioned . Pleasant person and good job done on the tree, we agreed to dispose of the prunings which help keep costs down for us .

Arranged a mutual date and time for Richard to pop around to quote for our gardening required. We were happy enough with his quote.
He mowed the lawns front and rear. Weeded a long border at the rear and a small bed at the front. Edges were strimmed.
Discussed with him after about which shrubs would be most suitable to plant in along the border at the rear. He was knowledgeable and helpful with his suggestions.
The final cost of his first visit to us was more than the original quote. It took another hour plus there was more waste than he anticipated. It was the first cut though and the grass was quite thick in places. We are pleased with the work he carried out.
Richard is an intelligent friendly professional man.

Chandlers Ford Gardening Services listened to what I wanted and the reasoning behind it. They suggested other ideas I hadn’t considered, without pressure. One of which I went with and am delighted at the result. Also very efficient and hard working. Kept me updated as they went along. I will use them again and recommend them as I really feel I can trust them. Not to mention my garden looks fantastic and is now much easier for me to manage. More...

I am a new client. Richard has brought my neglected garden back to life in one day, and it looks cared for now. I am sure he will continue to improve it and I am so pleased to find someone who understands the sort of garden I want, and is sensitive to environmental issues.

Richard did an excellent job at a very good price & was very pleasant to talk to which made my day as I have a husband with Parkinson's disease so don't get very much conversation.

Richard from Chandler’s Ford Gardening services arrived promptly to give me an estimate and also gave me some helpful suggestions. He kept to the schedule he set himself and updated me regularly. As well as the fact that he worked really hard and tidied up afterward he was also a mine of information on planting etc. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. More...

The garden is the one space 'in' our homes which changes it's décor on a daily basis! The majesty and awakening of Spring, the colour, aroma and fullness of Summer, the truly beautiful golden hues of Autumn, and the hibernation and 'tucking in' of the garden for those long Winter months!

I just love being out there and I treat each garden like my own.

Customer feedback is everything, be it verbal, emailed or social media.

One customer recently emailed me
'Hello, Richard, I am starting to love my garden again - it looks great, thank you!'

My favourite was a lovely lady who stood and watched me trim her 20 foot Pittosporum into a 'ball shape'. As I balanced atop my ladder, she looked on intently. When I had finished and stood back to check my work she stood and applauded me! I loved that!

Chandler's Ford Garden Services was formed out of a lifelong passion for all things gardening!
Having grown up around the stunning RHS Wisley gardens, I have always been driven by creating the most out of our 'biggest room'.

This is my own business and I pride myself in treating my customer's garden as I would my own.

Many Gardening Companies focus on large project where they can make more profit from the customer. I focus on my passion - getting my hands dirty and being a gardener! Plain and simple!

I recently took a call from a customer who asked me if I ‘dig’. When I laughed and said of course, she told me she had contacted 3 other “so called” Garden service Companies and all 3 had said “they preferred not to”!

For me Gardening is what it says on the tin!
