Low Maintenance Garden

Customer reference for Expert Decking Landscaping and Patios as told to pickapro by Des MacBride from Tallaght, Dublin 24 on 08-Oct-2010

When was the work done?
Ken has done two separate jobs for me. The first job was the back garden area in July, 2010 and the most recent work was at the front of the house in September.

What was involved?
The first job was the back garden which we wanted to make low maintenance. We also had an awful looking small shed that housed the boiler and oil tank. Ken put wood paneling on it and made it much nicer. He also put down gravel, a small wall with flowers and plants and indian sandstone stepping stones. The first job turned out so nice that we called Ken back to do our front garden as well. We wanted something similar to what was done in the back. Low maintenance, small raised bed, wall, stepping stones and a bit of gardening.

How did you choose Expert Decking Landscaping and Patios?
Ken was recommended to us by a woman my wife works with. Ken had done a job for her and she she was very pleased with how it turned out. My wife and I usually use positive word of mouth to choose the people we need.

Had you definite ideas in mind before you talked to Ken Eccles?
All we knew was that we wanted the garden to be low maintenance and to have something done with the oil tank and boiler. We didn't know what could be done about them, they looked awful!

Did Ken introduce new ideas?
Ken took our ideas of low maintenance and came up with some good plans. In the front garden Ken had a great idea. You know when you get out of your car and you have to step into the grass, Ken curved that area in stone and widened it. It turned out grand and now I don't have to step into the garden whenever I get into or out of my car.

How did the project run?
Great. We live in a terraced house so it was a nightmare as far as getting things done because everything was going to have to come through the house to get to the back. Despite that, Ken was spotless and at the end of the day you wouldn't even know that he had been there. He cleaned things up before leaving and started fresh the next morning.

What was the biggest benefit to you of using Expert Decking Landscaping and Patios?
The biggest benefit was that Ken's very particular in everything he does. I also liked the fact that Ken was on time every day and got straight to work. He was never coming in for tea or anything like that, he was very unobtrusive.

What's your favourite part now?
The back garden and the fact that the eye sore that was the boiler and oil tank has been covered up. It's hard to describe, but with the work that Ken did in the garden, it now feels more enclosed and like we're on our own instead of being surrounded by other houses.

Would you recommend Expert Decking Landscaping and Patios to others?
We have already.
