Excellent service all round. Mark was straightforward to work with - honest and up front about his scope and timelines. He kept me well informed throughout the course of an extensive fencing project which was brought in on budget and, most importantly, to an excellent standard of workmanship. Mark is a true perfectionist. I highly recommend his services and I will certainly be using him again in the future.

Mark undertook various Replacing & Repairing jobs of, Fencing including Rabbit-proof Fencing, Fence posts & Gates ( one of which he built ). He undertakes his work with enthusiasm and always displays a genuine will to please & co-operate. I have found him to be dependable & honest & despite his busy work schedule always makes time to return calls & to respond to texts/emails.

Review Comments
Mark was employed to replace the fences in our front and back gardens. The front was completed last year and we are absolutely delighted with the work he carried out. We agreed that as it was getting late in the year the larger back fence would be left until the spring. This is where the reliability issue comes in. We were given an early estimate of end of March/April and then a confirmed date which was moved twice. He has failed to contact me again to provide any further update so we had to cancel him.

Excellent at what he does but communication and commitment to timescale let him down.

Moderator Response
I apologise for the miscommunication here. I did get in touch with you to explain that I was on a massive fencing job that I had to get finished and that I would get back to you with a new date. Due to me working long hours on this job and as I work on my own, I did not get a chance to reply back to you with new dates, and by the time I was going to get in touch you had cancelled the job.

I always strive to keep in touch with my customers and if a job is going to take longer I may need to reschedule a job back in.

I feel my reviews speak for themselves as I am committed to my customers and most of my review are 5 stars.
Please accept my apologies on this occasion.
Regards
Mark Gerrard

I needed to replace old fence posts that were not holding well after the strong gales . Mark came to assess what was needed and kept in touch as to timescales as to how and when work would be done . Mark was able to do the work earlier and demonstrated a high standard of work and expertise . He also was able to rectify another fence for me too at the same time . He definitely goes above and beyond and takes a pride in his work .
Thank you Mark

We had used Mark before to save a broken fence - this time it was a full replacement. It’s the sturdiest fence, looks good, and Mark consulted us at all times to check we were happy with how the job was progressing. Mark takes great pride in his work. He is reliable and always keeps you informed on progress and planning. No hesitation in recommending.

Mark saved our fence after Storm Dudley did its best to destroy it! Mark was exceptionally helpful and extremley professional. He came when he said he would and worked hard whilst he was with us.
We are very grateful for the care and attention he gave and would have no hesitation in recommending him to others.
A job very well done and one we are very happy with.

Mark was recommended to us by a friend. He was very responsive and attentive. He kept to his word on timescales and did a great job in fixing our fence after the recent storms. We would highly recommend him and would use him again without hesitation.

Mark mended our broken fence even though the weather turned really nasty. He explained what he would do, turned up on time and did a great job. He says he takes pride in his work and this is evident. He got me to pay the timber company direct and then billed only his labour. I have booked him to re-lay a patio in better weather - can’t say better than that as evidence that we’re pleased with his work.

Mark was quick to reply to my initial contact and came out very quickly to give a quote. My fence was repaired in less than 10 days from my initial contact which was great. He kept me informed throughout and did a good job. I would use him again for any fencing jobs.

Mark put up a 6m length of fence at the bottom of our garden, replacing one that had rotted and disappeared over the years.
Excellent job, looks very sturdy and will no doubt outlast the rest of the fence!
Quick work, and no problems. Many thanks!

We needed a fence built in a tight space between a wall and the hedge for security and privacy, as our garden backs on to the street. Mark turned up when he said he would and even though the job turned out to be not as straightforward as first thought, he came up with solutions to make it work and didn't complain once, even when crawling under the hedge to fit the fence. I would and will use Mark again and without hesitation would definitely recommend him.

Mark put in seven posts and rebuilt a fence and gate that had been damaged in the recent high winds. He came out promptly to view the job and proved to be reliable and friendly. I have recommended Mark to family and friends and have no hesitation in recommending him to you.

Mark had been maintaining my previous garden for a number of years and agreed to do my new (new build) garden when I moved house.

He worked tirelessly extending the patio, assembling a garden shed, digging over the very compacted soil, building raised beds and laying turf. As always he kept me informed and was continually looking for the most cost effective ways to do the work.

I trust Mark completely. He is honest, reliable and very helpful.

Great job Mark!
