Testimonials

Stephen March 2021

Dom and Adam's work (garden maintenance) is greatly appreciated. Dom really listened to everything we discussed very carefully and went out of his way to understand and then act upon that discussion. We are extremely pleased with the work done - both to the pond and pyracantha.

We have been coming to Hambrooks for years and it's our favorite garden centre because of its friendly helpful staff and a great selection of plants and trees and the garden design ideas.

“We wanted to write and say how pleased we are with our low maintenance garden makeover. We are very impressed with the attitude of your staff who were prepared to listen to our requirements. Your team John and Rick brushed up and left everything tidy at the end of the day. We now have a garden we can manage and it looks great. THANK YOU HAMBROOKS.”

Mr & Mrs Venables, Southampton. April 2019

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!"
