When was the work done?
The work was done in June, 2010.
What was involved?
It was a complete overhaul of the garden. Paul put in a new lawn, a sandstone patio and a water feature. He also cut back and trimmed all of my bushes, added a new back door and built a boiler house. Outdoor lighting was installed as well. Paul did everything I wanted and more.
How did you choose Garden Transformation?
I found Paul through an advertisement in the local newspaper. I met with him and we discussed the project and what it would cost. I also contacted a couple of other landscapers but I wasn't as impressed with them as I was with Paul. Paul had some really good ideas and his prices were a little less than what the others were quoting. What I really liked about Paul was that he doesn't bombard you with phone calls. He sent me a quote to do the work and told me that if I was interested to let him know.
Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Paul White?
I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted done, yes.
Did Paul introduce new ideas?
In my situation it wasn't necessary. Paul thought that what I had in mind for the garden was very good.
How did the project run?
Absolutely excellent. Paul's men were here every morning before 9 am and sometimes worked until half 6 or 7 in the evening, a full days work. They would take a half hour for lunch, have a cup of tea and go straight back to work. The project took 10 days and finished on schedule.
What was the biggest benefit to you of using Garden Transformation?
I found that anything I asked Paul to do, he did. Paul kept me informed of what was going on and the progression of the work.
What's your favourite part now?
The water feature. At first I thought that we should just go down to Woodies and buy one but Paul said that he could make one up himself which would be nicer. He did and it’s lovely.
Would you recommend Garden Transformation to others?
I would, yes.
Any tips for other people?
It really helps to shop around. Even though I got four quotes to carry out the same job, I heard differences in price of up to two thousand euro.
