New Roll On Turf Lawn And Drainage

Customer reference for Darren Drummond Landscape Design and Construction as told to pickapro by John Varian from Mallow, Co Cork on 01-Mar-2012

When was the work done?
The work was done in October, 2012.

What was involved?
When we bought this house the lawn wasn't the best - it had lumps, bumps and the drainage wasn't great. When it rained, puddles would form so we wanted to get the lawn done. Darren stripped out what was there and replaced it with new turf lawn that he made nice and level. To improve the drainage, Darren mixed stone in with the soil underneath and it's made a big difference, there's no more puddles.

How did you choose Darren Drummond Landscape Design and Construction?
I did a Google search to get the names of 3-4 landscapers in my area and Darren was the only one who responded in a timely manner. After meeting Darren, I knew straight off the bat that he was the one I was going to choose. Darren came in quickly, estimated the size and costs and we went with him because it was obvious he knew his stuff. The others were ridiculously slow in even turning up to do a quote.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Darren Drummond?
I just wanted the drainage problem to be sorted and the garden made neat.

Did Darren introduce new ideas?
Darren provided ideas and options regarding roll-on turf and astro turf. The astro turf option would have required a more extensive drainage system and would have been a lot more expensive. I chose roll-on turf but Darren left all decisions up to me and didn't push me in one direction or the other.

How did the project run?
Perfect. Darren was here when he said he would be, worked hard, took short breaks and finished the job in two days. I was under a bit of pressure to get the work completed quickly. Darren and the guys put in the extra effort to complete the work on time.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Darren Drummond Landscape Design and Construction?
The work was top notch and the cost was very reasonable. I didn't feel like I was being ripped off and the end result was what I was hoping it would be.

What's your favourite part now?
The garden is neat, level and doesn't flood anymore.

Would you recommend Darren Drummond Landscape Design and Construction to others?
Definitely, yes. I plan on having the same work done to the front lawn and I'll be getting Darren back to do that as well.
