Some of our work

What our customers are saying...

"In the summer of 2006 Chris built us a deck & staircase at the back of our house at the top of a steeply sloping garden, he also built a fence along the top of a retaining wall.


His workmanship was excellent, he is reliable and trustworthy, always willing to give garden advice & ideas (e.g. on our pond), very knowledgeable on gardening & wildlife, and a thoroughly nice chap.

The deck & stairs are in use daily (as they provide access to the rest of the garden) and serve their purpose well, being solidly constructed and despite lack of any maintenance or care show no signs of deterioration.


I would (and have) thoroughly recommended Chris for any gardening or garden construction work and am more than happy to have anyone contact me for references or to view the work that he has done for us."

Clifton & Siobhan Weeks, Clifton Wood



"I would recommend the Garden Doctor to anyone. We were thrilled with the work Chris and his team did on our garden. It was done very quickly, and kept to our budget. Chris obviously cares about his work and this shows in his attention to detail. He transformed what was a mud pit on a slope to a wonderful garden that the whole family are enjoying, especially our rabbit!"

Sarah Banbury, Horfield



"We're really delighted with our new space and have spent lots of time in it since it was finished.  I would definitely recommend Chris and crew to others.  He paid close attention to the brief and listened well, responding to the fact we wanted to re-use existing materials where possible.  They kept the space tidy as well as the areas they came through to take waste off site.  They got rid of rubble and green waste quickly, finding cheaper options than originally quoted.  Plus they brought their own tea."

Tiggy Latcham, Knowle


"Chris and Tony were highly professional from the moment Chris quoted the job until the very last day. They were flexible to change and adapted their plan as works evolved, and kept a good sense of humour throughout! This made a massive difference in enabling us to realise the vision in our imagination. The standard of work is exceptionally high and has been praised by all of our friends and family who are now jealous! Thank you so much to you both."

Kate McGreal Nailsea

"I first called upon the Garden Doctor when my mother was no longer able to look after her garden herself and it had grown into an urban jungle, in desperate need of clearing - front and back. 


Chris understood immediately what she had been trying to achieve and set about bringing it under control without losing its essential style. He knows his plants and gave excellent advice on what to cut back and what to leave to its own devices. 


He has pruned my mother's beloved magnolia tree to her 100% satisfaction several times - not an easy task with a 90-year old amateur gardener! He has carried out the task efficiently and safely, harnessed within the canopy.


Chris and his team have been once or twice a year since then to maintain the garden. His staff are at all times hard-working, and polite, following his instructions to the letter. The skill levels demonstrated by his team are also high. On each occasion they have left the garden clean and tidy, taking the waste with them. I would not hesitate to recommend the Garden Doctor to anyone searching for a reliable company."
