You engaged with us throughout the process from initial concept to its completion, which more than surpassed our expectations. Your work ethic, professionalism and dedication were exemplary. Once again thank you!”

Mr & Mrs Springett, Gosport. September 2019

"Dear Kevin, The garden looks amazing and we can’t thank you and the team enough for the transformation. It’s much easier now for Colin to get around so we’re looking forward to some nice weather to fully enjoy our new garden. In the meantime we are enjoying looking at it from indoors!"

Mr J Bastian, Fair Oak. October 2019

"I'm writing to say how impressed I am with the 2 gents you sent to me last week to carry-out the autumn maintenance. They achieved so much in 1 day, clearly understand their plants and were a pleasure to have around the home and family. I do hope they are able to return to my garden especially when we get into the regular maintenance next year. Please pass on my thanks to the team."

Mr & Mrs Shrives, Lee-on-Solent. November 2019

"We just wanted to write and thank you for sending the two Toms to help us this morning. They really were so polite and courteous explaining exactly what they were going to do and confirming that we were happy. A real joy to have in the garden! Do pass our thanks onto them. As Mike said, Hambrook's always have such delightful and knowledgable staff. And the tree looks a beautiful shape and I am no longer worried about the fig bringing the conservatory down in the wind!"

Mary & Andrew Scott-Brown. Southampton. December 2019

"Dear Craig, Just wanted to say thank you for your part in creating a beautiful garden for us at the front and back of the house.  Also please pass on our thanks to Mike for his advice and to the 2 teams headed by Mark and Terry. We were impressed with how hard all the men worked in all weathers, their attention to detail and how smooth the whole process was for us. Everyone was polite and always helpful in discussing our ideas and answering our queries.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Hambrooks to our friends as the company delivers on what they advertise to do just as they did in 1993 when we first used them to landscape our garden."

Mr & Mrs Ward. Hamble, Southampton. January 2020

"Hambrooks has transformed our garden from an outdated, slightly cramped area, into a contemporary, crisp, easily maintained and usuable space. It looks more spacious thanks to the vision and foresight of Hambrooks & Matthew, who turned an idea from my wife, drawn on an A4 sheet of paper into reality.  Weare pleased to say it is still ‘wildlife friendly’ to which the many Squirrels, Hedgehogs, and many & varied species of birds can testify. We have no hesitation in recommending Hambrooks, Matthew & his team to all."
