B. Rendell 2021

I would like to say how delighted we are with the work carried out. Mel, Paul and Tony all worked very hard, they totally took on board the specific need relating to safety as well as the general garden issues. Paul and Tony were excellent at consulting and discussing with me what I felt best in terms of the brief and adjusting if and as necessary, constantly pleasant and polite to deal with. Mel had picked up on particular issues from the first consultation and offered valuable advice. The outcome means a great deal less worry for me going forward.
Altogether a very positive experience and outcome which I would not hesitate to recommend to others.

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.

Marsha 2021

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.

E. Smith Southampton Jan 2020

I wish to express my gratitude to Sam Mercer and the team for the design and renovation of my garden. I am thrilled with the finished look. Sam was meticulous with the detailing especially as I went for materials I had only seen in photos or on various websites. Sam sourced for me and now I have a really gorgeous garden that I am looking forward to enjoying in the summer months. The team did a fantastic job, in adverse weather conditions, especially in keeping a shared path clean after every day which was a specific requirement for me. Nothing was too much trouble. Hambrooks are not the cheapest but you get what you pay for, I would highly recommend anyone thinking of renovating their garden to use Hambrooks.

Mr & Mrs Ward. Hamble, Southampton Jan 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Hambrooks has transformed our garden from an outdated, slightly cramped area, into a contemporary, crisp, easily maintained and usuable space.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.

Mary & Andrew Scott-Brown. Southampton Dec 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 Shrives, Lee-on-Solent Nov 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!

Mr J Bastian, Fair Oak Oct 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 Springett, Gosport Sept 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!
