Fortnightly visits. Helen always arrives on time and works responsibly and quickly for the two hours she is with us. She has an infectious, out going personality and an obvious love of gardening, so is ideally suited to this work.

Helen has made our garden look amazing. From initial contact, to quote, to the job itself and afterwards, Helen has been fantastic in providing advice and feedback for aftercare. Before and after pictures she took for us show the brilliant job she did in a few hours.

I would definitely use Helen again and looking at regular upkeep with her. More than happy to recommend the fantastic services of Acer Spades.

Summary:

Garden design.

Comments:

I am not very good at gardening and, having lived in this house for many years, I felt it was about time to get some professional help. 

I gave Helen a budget and we worked together on all the options available. She was determined to give me a garden I would love and she went away and drew up some really creative plans, together with pictures of the various plants - this was really helpful as I didn't know the names of plants. She is extremely knowledgeable.

She dug out and created some borders. As the ground was very hard, she did a lot of work with the soil, mixing manure into it so that it would give the best base for the new plants.

There were some old rose bushes and there was one I really wanted to keep so she replanted this in a different area.

I know how difficult it is to get a good gardener - my grandmother lives 100 miles away and I try to sort things out this end for her - I sincerely wish that she could have the services of Helen but it is a bit too far to travel!

Helen is so warm, friendly and very approachable. Her trustworthiness and reliability is second to none. I am over the moon with what she has done to our garden and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

She is an absolute credit to Safe Local Trades and what it stands for.

Summary:

Revamp of overgrown bedding area at side of garden.

Comments:

Helen cleared the entire bedding area, including plants, roots, weeds and other foliage; ready for planting. I was so grateful for this help as it has been difficult to find time to manage the garden.

She is very friendly, knowledgeable, easy to get on with, extremely helpful and she explained everything about what she was going to do. 

I am delighted with the results and would happily recommend Helen to anyone.

Summary:

Trim overgrown laurel bush.

Comments:

I had been left down before and desperately needed the overgrown laurel cut back. It had grown to over 8/9ft high and was approx 11 metres long. I needed it reduced to around 6ft so that I could manage it going forwards.

Helen arrived punctually and worked extremely hard and tirelessly throughout the day to get this job done and I was so grateful that finally it was back to a tidy state. She is really friendly and trustworthy and all the debris was cleared away (including some extra bits!).

Whilst the work was taking place, my neighbour came out and requested a quote from Helen as she could see how good she was.

I would happily recommend Helen to others.
