[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="center"]Just a quick note to let you know how pleased we are with the landscaping of our rear garden and particularly the professional manner the guys on the job carried out their work.
There was full consultation at all times during the two weeks whilst on site, particularly the progress and standard of work that was being carried out. The site was kept remarkably clean and tidy considering the amount of hard landscaping that was being carried out with all the waste removed on a daily basis.
The final result after the new lawn was laid was fantastic, and the advice on the planting of the raised bed being realised as the seasons progressed. Suffice to say we are not only pleased with the final result but also the value for money considering the work, time and effort put in to the garden by yourself and those who work with you. Once again Ian, many thanks to you and your team.

[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="center"]We wanted to let you know how pleased we both were with the work carried out by yourself and your team. We were already at an advantage when we asked you to call to look at our garden and give us ideas and an estimate, having already seen the finished work you and your team did transforming our son's garden and we felt confident that we could also look forward to a high standard of workmanship.
We have not been let down and have been so happy with the work that has been carried out. We have to add that the work done was not a small task we had fences removed to get diggers in new patios laid sleepers erected not to mention the work on the planted area of the garden. This was all carried out with consideration for ourselves and neighbours plus completely put back together as if it had always been that way.

[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="center"]I would like to thank you for the design and landscape service you have provided.

[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="center"]Ian Howe Landscaping recently landscaped my front and rear gardens, renewed all paving and replaced the grass with Artificial Turf (Lazy Lawn). Ian proved himself to be reliable, honest, punctual and trustworthy, all traits which are so sadly missing in a lot of workmen these days. His workmen are very reliable and their expertise and consummate professionalism was excellent. A first class job.

[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="center"]Ian Howe Landscaping LTD has completed 2 landscaping jobs for me in the last year which involved block paving my driveway and paths, etc, and the creation of a small patio area.
All the work was done to a very high standard and his men had quite evidently been very well trained, being efficient and courteous. Any problems encountered were brought to my attention and resolved satisfactorily. The works were well planned before commencement with Ian being well aware of all statutory regulations and requirements and was able to offer advice on how to improve on my initial ideas.
His quotes were certainly not the cheapest I could have got but I’m thrilled with the finished projects and I’m sure I got good value for money.

[blockquote type="blockquote_quotes" align="center"]From design concept to full completion, the work has been done to an ‘Excellent’ standard and in a timely manner. In particular, the construction of the decking and paving areas has transformed the look and presence of the rear garden area. Your staff were always professional, polite and very approachable during their work, despite at times the challenging weather conditions.
