These works are now complete and we have a fantastic garden. Thank you.

We have enjoyed the whole process of working with Nicholsons, from the design and pricing phase with David and Richard to the discussions during the build with Mat and the team.

The team under Mat have done a fantastic job. Mat is a great leader and very comfortable dealing with the client while also getting the best from the team. He coped admirably with our strange questions and requests and our enthusiasm for but ignorance of gardens. He is communicative and attentive while also setting a great practical example on the ground to the team.

The team themselves were a joy to have around. They were tidy and consistently hard working in often miserable conditions. On top of that, they were always prepared to listen to our requests and offer a smile when we stopped to enquire about things. I think you are lucky to have staff like Graham, Nick and Ash and Chris (who joined them for the final week).
