These guys are brilliant, I was having a nightmare with a monster sycamore tree, that had literally taken over mine and my neighbours garden. Due to its size I was extremely worried about who to get to remove it, and about the high price it may cost, I called josh and he advised and reassured me that the job wouldn't be a problem, and the price was great, mac and seb were prompt, professional, trustworthy and what skill mac has, scaling and managing such an enormous tree, he glided about with ease. They tidied up everything and chopped up the wood into logs for me to use in the log burner, they have solved for me what has been a headache for years, thanks lads, would definitely recommend and will use them again. Would post a photo if I knew how to.

We have used Josh and his team before and always found them reliable. We had a large tree stump in the middle of a grass area which Josh came in and removed really quickly and efficiently. The stump and roots were removed well below the grass level as requested. Josh then tided up afterwards leaving the area looking great. We will definitely use JDS Gardening again and have recommendEd them to friends and family.

We have been aiming to employ a gardening firm now for quite a while, as our large and unruly garden had become a bit of a headache, especially finding enough time to attend to it, to keep it at the high standard a proper gardener would achieve. From this online feedback forum and also reviewing their webpage, it sounded like JDS Gardening were exactly what we were looking for. From the initial online request, to the face to face engagement with Josh, when he visited to scope out the job, it has been a brilliant experience dealing with this firm. We are so pleased we chose them. In the short space of 3 weeks, our garden was completely transformed from an overgrown mess, into a tidy and inviting space. The team attended regularly over that period, having prioritised the large amount of required work into a logical order for attention. At each stage we received communication about appointment times etc. and they set clear expectations of what would be achieved in each visit, matched against our original quotation. The team members are friendly, polite, punctual and they arrive and just get stuck into the task at hand with no time wasted. It has been a great experience. We are continuing to use their maintenance services on a regular 2 weekly pattern, where they visit at a pre-arranged time and ensure the garden is all kept tidy and up to scratch. Although there has been a financial investment needed to reach this stage, we have no regrets and are so glad we chose wisely, selecting a hard working, reliable and professional firm. We would thoroughly recommend JDS Gardening for any size of job, large or small, due to their reliability and dedicated service. Thanks guys, you’re the best!

Josh was very prompt in quoting for the work and and then fitting us into his busy schedule at a time to suit us. The work included laying a paving slab base for a summer house, re-positioning a rockery, hedge-cutting, pressure washing the patio, trimming shrubs and weeding. Josh is professional, very hard-working, reliable and friendly. Very happy to recommend Josh and his team.

Josh installed a first class fence in my front garden and levelled off the ground to make the garden easier for me to manage. Josh was very prompt with quoting for the work and arrived on time at agreed date completing the work in I might add dreadful weather conditions!
I will be using Josh again and would highly recommend.

Great company and service....do a great job at a very reasonable price. I've been using them for several years now. These are proper gardeners and landscapers NOT cowboys... I can had ghly recommend them for large and small jobs....they cut my grass and last year took down a massive 15 MTR thick hedge in the garden. Both done perfectly, quickly and not expensively.
