Testimonials 2020

We can thoroughly recommend Dave Reeves Landscaping. Dave and his company replaced our old patio for us last Spring, and we are delighted with the results of their hard work. Right from the start Dave quickly understood what we were looking for, and recommended the materials and design to bring our ideas to life. He and his team were professional, incredibly hard working, polite and paid great attention to detail. Communication was good throughout, and the finished product was even better than we could have hoped. We would not hesitate to used Dave Reeves Landscaping again.

Dave Reeves won the contract to redevelop my garden in early 2019. Dave worked with me to develop a design for my new garden that met my 4 requirements which were to be:-

  1. Harmonious with the design of the house
  2. Meet my budget requirement
  3. Be easily maintained
  4. Meet my aspirations for a lifestyle garden

I was satisfied that the design met all of the above. Dave and his team carried out the work in the autumn of 2019 in some of the worst possible weather. There was torrential rain and high winds but somehow Dave and his team of people managed to complete the project in the project timescale.

Dave and his people were a pleasure to have around. Dave communicated with me regularly so I always felt confident the project was being managed well and even suggested a few small enhancements as the garden took shape which made it even more special.

Dave was scrupulously honest in his accounting and delivered on time and on budget. I would recommend him as a garden designer and contractor.

We approached Dave with plans to completely refurbish our garden. He listened very carefully to our brief and came back within a few days with several different plans. We worked together and combined two plans together to get our perfect garden. He then came up with a quote (which remained accurate throughout the process) but put us under no pressure to commit to the project. When we were ready, he booked us in for the work to start.

He has a small team that work with him. They obviously all get on very well together. They worked hard, to a high standard, and were always prompt and courteous. Dave managed the project but obviously had huge trust in them.

When our project was completed we were thrilled with the result. There was one small thing that we were unhappy with and Dave fixed it promptly and at no extra cost.

Dave is totally honest and puts everything through the books. It is very important to him that his clients are happy with their new garden. I have recommended him to a number of family and friends who have also been delighted with the projects they have commissioned from him.

We have had 2 patios done by Dave and his team who are quick and very efficient in what they do.  They are tidy and considerate to their surroundings and always willing to discuss new ideas and improvements that can be made.  Their success means they are busy so you need to get them booked in early, but it’s worth the wait!

Dave and his team completely landscaped our football/cricket pitch back garden into a stylish grown up garden. The enthusiasm and ideas from Dave really helped us shape what we wanted to do from the plants required to the positioning and style of the bar. We have continued to use the team for maintenance and I can honestly say that it has been worth every penny to keep the garden looking the way it was designed to.

Dave Reeves Landscaping transformed my garden in May 2018 and I am really delighted with the results. Dave covered and project managed everything from paving recommendations to the planting, lighting, planter design and build along with a solution for dreadful drainage in a typical new-build garden.

It was a pleasure to have Dave and the team at my home – the team is diligent, hard working and punctual but moreover knowledgable, skilled and pay incredible attention to detail.

Communication was great with Dave keeping me informed about what to expect and when. There were no surprises on the cost front and Dave was happy to flex the plan as and when new ideas cropped up. I have no hesitation in recommending Dave and his team and will be having them back to help me maintain the garden as it matures over time. My sincere thanks go to Dave, Michael, Harvey, Mike and Sam.

Dave completed our garden in November 2016. He did an amazing job with his team, and really listened to what we wanted. Dave is very professional and cares about what he does.

We are both very pleased with the work from Dave Reeves Landscaping. They have totally transformed a very messy and hectic garden making it an area we will now be able to use. The approach taken to the work was excellent. I felt totally comfortable that the work would be completed in the agreed manner, after the day’s work was completed everything was tidied up really well and the guys doing the work were always on time.
It’s really nice to feel confident and comfortable with people who are in and around your house, I haven’t always felt that way when we have used contractors in the past.

Thanks for the truly lovely transformation of our back garden. Right from the start, you listened to our ideas, made thoughtful suggestions and then translated those into a well executed project. The project planning went well and finished pretty much to schedule, even with a period of dreadful weather, and importantly there were no surprises on the budget. We look forward to the garden maturing and enjoying it for many years to come.

It now feels like we have a new outdoor room added to our house. You were an absolute pleasure to work with and would not hesitate in recommending you to anyone considering having garden works done on their property.
Very best,

Nick and Andrea Edwards

Dear Dave,

We were very pleased with the landscaping of parts of our garden which completed our original design, 30 years on. We particularly appreciated you listening to our ideas, then developing them and making suggestions of your own for both the hard landscaping and the choice of plants. It was a collaboration with an expert! We were impressed and relieved that you and Michael your helper, worked hard and long hours to complete the job.

You had time to chat about any issues that arose and were never “phased “. The work was professional, thorough, and you both cleaned up at the end of each day. At the end of the work, there were no nasty surprises and the garden was clean and lovely. I particularly liked the patio under the apple trees for the garden table. We were also impressed that although you have qualifications you actually did know what you were talking about.

Thank you again for producing a lovely garden. I would recommend you to anyone who needs a garden landscaping from scratch or just enhancing.

Regards, Peter and Susie Dutton

Hi Dave,

Thank you so much for the wonderful job you made of our garden. What was to be just a tidy up and a new lawn turned into a complete transformation! The neighbours have commented on how lovely it looks and we couldn’t agree more. We will highly recommend you to anyone requiring such work. Once again many thanks.

Dear David,

We would both like to say an enormous thank you for transforming our scrappy piece of garden into an amazing feature of a pond with a pergola over it.

Your boundless energy, expertise and enthusiasm for every stage of the transformation were second to none. I think you were as excited as us as the stages progressed, and your attention to detail in everything even down to the choice of plants, has made it a really beautiful feature for us, and Marley, to enjoy. We could not recommend you highly enough.

Thank you so much.

Our very best wishes for the continued success of your business.

I am absolutely delighted with the beautiful garden Dave has created for me. He has transformed a patch of grass into a lovely cottage garden, full of established plants that are shooting buds by the day. Dave took time with me to advise and suggest, based on my own vision and favourite flowering plants. The last few days of the work were completed while I was away and I could not believe my eyes when I returned home. Thank you so much Dave. You have done an amazing job. I can’t wait to pull my curtains each morning to look again!

Hi David

Many thanks for all your hard work last week. My garden looks so much better and the trees are perfect!

Dave did a great job on our back garden. He helped us with the design of the garden and the selection of plants. We wanted a small water feature and a grass area which he planted from seed and an interesting border – all achieved. He worked hard to get the job done quickly and efficiently and his price was very competitive. I would certainly use his services again as he obviously enjoys the challenge of creating something interesting.

I knew Dave as a pleasant, hard-working colleague in his teaching days. He was, therefore, my first and only port of call when I wanted to commission some pre-retirement work in my garden. He re-turfed a raised lawn, completely cleared and then seeded a very neglected side garden with new wild flower meadow grass and planted new hedging alongside this to match, in due course, with an existing long standing hedge.

Newly-planted climbers are ready to clamber up two telegraph poles and a trellis, whilst the removal of overgrown planting will allow well established plants to thrive in the light.

My only regret is that I now have to be patient through the winter until everything springs into life.

Some comments from schools:

“Hi Dave. THANK YOU!  The plan is great!  Thank you for all your help and for giving up your time to help us.”

“Hi David. Thank you so much for the summary and design. I think the Top Playground ideas look fantastic and I’ll be presenting these at our next Eco meeting next Wednesday.

“Hi Dave.  Thanks again for coming over to see our blank canvas garden!  I was really impressed with all your ideas and am feeling inspired to get moving on the project!”

“Hi Dave, Thanks for the design plan. Dee and I were really inspired by your ideas and are eager to see them realized. Armed with the design, I can have a talk with the PTA to see what funding they are prepared to raise and what practical help is forthcoming.”

“Really helpful, achievable advice. Dave suggested we plant wildflowers in our meadow and mow a winding path through the long grass. We did and have been thrilled with the outcome!”
