Mark did an excellent job cutting back Leylandii and putting in new fencing. His customer service was particularly good, keeping me informed and consulting me throughout the job.

We asked Mark to come quote for a fence repair after a storm. He arrived quickly to quote and completed the job when he said he would.

His price was very reasonable.

We have already asked him to come back to do more work later in the year and will be our go to man for any garden work.

Completed a big job very well. Perhaps could have done with a labourer to assist. We made one or two small changes which Mark took in his stride.

We are delighted with our new garden. At our first meeting we gave Mark our budget and he came up with brilliant ideas.We had a relatively small budget which he worked with! He lifted turf, put down stones, built wall using railway sleepers and also laid a new patio. He was lovely to deal with and took pride in his work. We have booked him to come back in September to do more work for us.

Mark has done exellent work, on several occasions coming out at short notice to tidy up, cut grass, tame an unruly Hawthorne hedge. I can't praise him highly enough. A good worker and a nice bloke.

Mark put down two tons of lawn dressing, levelled the ground and laid grass seed.
We found Mark's work to be excellent, well priced and professional.
Mark himself is friendly and is happy to give advice.
He has cleared and rotavated the garden for us prior to this latest work he has done and we will be contacting him again for further work.
Very highly recommended.

Mark carried out some landscaping, in my front garden. Removal of existing grass , preparation, laying chips and fitting concrete decorative edgings. Then spreading grass seed to fill in bare areas on the existing grass areas.
All works carried out to the highest level, Mark is friendly, polite and on time every time. Nothing is too much trouble. I found Mark great for ideas and general advice, I will be hiring Mark later in the year to carry out further changes to the remaining garden. I would without hesitation recommend Muddy Boots garden/fencing services to everyone!. Fantastic Mark!

Mark responded quickly to my telephone call came within an hour to have a look and did work the following day. Renewed 3 fence posts. Hard worker kept garden tidy and removed debris.
Very reasonably priced when others were not really interested in such a small job. Would recommend and use again.

Mark has built a garden fence with gate for me at the time no other traders were interested in doing such low value work. The quality of the work and communication with Mark has been excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. In fact, I'll be using his services again for another job in the garden.

Review Comments
Mark was prompt at getting back to me regarding a quote for the work to be carried out.
I agreed to the quote for installing a gate and clearing a small piece of ground, putting down membrane chips and a raised bed. However the work was very rushed which equates to it costing £50 an hour and of very poor quality and finish.

I would not recommend Muddy Boots and have arranged for another person to finish the job to an acceptable quality.

Moderator Response
The trader has replied to the comments as follows:

We want to apologise first of all to the reviewer if she feels at all let down.
Our normal standard of work is very high and we pride ourselves on this.

The positive reviews on this site speak for themselves.

We do dispute the comments regarding the hourly rate, I quoted £450 for the job and was on site over 16 hours in total over 4 days.

Mark was recommended to me and I was very happy with the work he carried out. He replaced our back fence, put in a front fence and side gate. He was very reasonably priced, friendly and approachable. Would use him again.

Replaced an old garden gate with a new one and also replaced a gate post and a fence post. Mark did a good job, was very helpful and my garden looks all the better for it. Good value for the money.

Putting in 2 x new fence posts in back garden as the original ones were coming loose and the fence was starting to fall down.

Mr Gerrard was most helpful. I originally spoke to him on the phone as I saw his name on the East Lothian Council website so I knew he could be trusted. I am very very pleased with his work and his polite manner. I would definitely recommend him to friends !!

General gardening and tidy up. Path laid and edging put in place.

This was a general tidy up job and not a gardening project. No plan or structured timetable was required.
