Caterham, November 2020:

New patio with increased space due to removal of raised garden grounds, created a flat level finish at top of garden, fitted Gabion cages and infills. New fencing and Gabion cages stairs. I highly recommend SDL Garden Services, Sam and his team are collectively all a pleasure to have had working for us. Sam was always contactable when needed and was always solution minded when he came across any project issues. My project was not the easiest for SDL due to my closed access issues and the vertical challenges that this work required. SDL have delivered a finish that 100% matches my expectations. Local, reliable, professional genuine, quality focussed, Courteous and Friendly... what more would you want from a contractor?

Edenbridge, September 2020:

General gardening and turfing Verified Sam and Nicky have visited me twice recently and on both occasions have done exactly as I asked to a high standard. They are reliable, are so efficient, communicate really well and their work is of a high standard. They also tidying up and leave no mess. They are hard working and don’t mess around. Work is carried out with no hassle and I would definitely recommend.

Warlingham, July 2020:

Turfing and Landscaping Sam and his crew did a fantastic job digging out my back garden with a mini digger and laying new turf. The access wasn't ideal for them to work in and had to be very careful with the machine on a a new patio but everything they did was top class and they went over and above to suit my needs all the way through. Very competitive pricing and wouldn't hesitate to use again. Happy to recommend

Removal of old fencing and installation of new panels Verified Review Very happy with new fencing installed, the team were hard working to get the job completed quickly but also to a very high standard. Merchant didn’t hold enough stock of required panels so Sam put in a temporary panel at his own cost to then come and replace a few days later. Wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Sam and the team!

Warlingham, May 2020:

Removal of several overgrown shrubs. Jet washing and subsequent re-pointing of patio and path I was very concerned at having the re-pointing done as a previous contractor did an appalling job. Sam was very keen to ensure that I was happy throughout and completed the work using a traditional grouting mix of sand and cement as I had requested. Whole job completed to job specification without difficulty. Sam and Grant worked hard and tidily. They were both polite and kept me informed throughout.

Caterham, April 2020:

Complete landscape of front and back garden Sam and his team took on the project of completely landscaping the front and back garden of my house. They worked extremely hard to get this completed In the time frame we discussed, I made changes to the project at very short notice but Sam wasn’t fazed by this and they still completed on time. We now have a nice big driveway with retaining walls and resin driveway and a big porcelain patio with raised sleepers and artificial grass. Sam has now been passed onto our neighbour and is starting there project later in the year due to the high standard of his work from the design to completion.

Edenbridge, February 2020:

Picket fence Really pleased with what SDL did for us today. Just what you want from a subby clean, efficient, polite, and with a high standard of install...... Most of all fuss free! No doubt we will be asking Sam and his team to carry out some future tasks for us.

Vikki Rutter:

Sam Lewis was recommended to me on Facebook and I can't fault in the service he provides from start to finish. I was looking for a gardener at short notice and Sam arrived early the next morning, quoted for the work and then 2 days later arrived to carry out the work. Sam's communication is brilliant, always answering messages and most importantly turning up exactly when he said. The work today was carried out quickly, very efficiently and to a high standard - I honestly can't fault anything at all. It's so nice when Facebook works...for a business and for a customer. You can't beat a personal recommendation hence why I would highly recommend Sam and his team, what friendly guys! Thank you and I will definitely be in touch in the fut
