Having completed the purchase of our home - a key desire was to completely renovate the garden and make safe aspects of the space for our small children. Phil came onboard and after a detailed survey where he took time to talk to us about the Project, came back swiftly with a bespoke plan to transform the garden which took into careful consideration all we spoke about from my limited knowledge of gardening and my lack of ideas of how to bring it to life. The proposal was detailed and well presented with accurate costings communicated so there were no surprises further down the line. Phil came at each task with passion and expertise. He took time to explain his vision and showed us what was possible to do with the space we had. We could not be happier with the end result and are now enjoying our little piece of ‘Augusta’ Phil has created for us in Harrogate. Phil is trustworthy, hardworking and knowledgeable - everything you could hope for when tackling a project of this nature. I recommend him and The Trusted Trowel very highly. We are already talking about future projects.
The transformation from a relatively ordinary space into an area of elegance and beauty (without taking away from the natural landscape of the valley) is astonishing! Thank you so much!
The Trusted Trowel has transformed my garden back to its' original maturity, with a lot of hard work and care. My family say "the garden is looking its' best in years". Thank you Phil, you are a "great find" for me and my garden.
We wanted a new hedge in our front garden and chose Phil for his friendly demeanour, professionalism and knowledge of plants. He worked really hard at prepping what turned out to be a difficult spot due to piping, moving plants and putting the new ones in. He didn’t give up on what seemed to be a tough job! We are very satisfied with the end result and would highly recommend him.
Phil took to the task with great care, expertise and consideration, all the way through, from the clearing and preparation of the ground, to the more aesthetic aspects of placing and balancing plants and planting, with an understanding of how our garden will 'work' as it grows and matures. He even followed up with a call, warning us of an anticipated cold spell in the weather, advising on how to protect our newly planted shrubs. We're keen to have Phil return in the months ahead, to manage and maintain our garden. He is certainly well named, and we do indeed consider him our 'Trusted Trowel'.
