Linda_114 Stonehill Woods Park_Garden Works June 2017

I cannot praise Alan and Scott highly enough; not only did they do all the work quoted for but suggested/implemented additional ideas at no further cost … and the added bonus was that they were an absolute delight to have around!

They laid a new shed base (8 inches thick and reinforced with large steel mesh); laid a base for my composter; widened existing paths at two ends by laying additional slabs; laid border edging, which I supplied, around the perimeter of my home and infilled with shingle, which they also used to build up specified areas in the garden and moved heavy plant pots onto it; fitted concrete posts, which they clad in wood to maintain the looks of the fencing, and gravel boards to stop soil erosion from my garden onto on a sharp slope; built a fence across the back of my patio for decorative and safety purposes and installed handrails by the steps at both ends; stained this and the existing perimeter fence; and laid top soil to even out the dangerously bumpy grassed areas and seeded (and Alan said that they`d keep an eye on it when passing and top up the seed if necessary).

In addition, I mentioned that I was going to put in a raised herb bed so Alan said that he had a sleeper which, when cut in two, would be the perfect dimensions for this so, the next thing I knew, it was there, set in cement and with angle straps in the corners. I also told him that I was going to create a small woodland rockery behind the shed so that ground was broken up and levelled by the addition of some top soil. Other extras included decorative knobs on the patio fence; cleaning and sealing of the patio, paths and front approach slabs; staining of raised bed frame and also the shuttering around the shed and composter bases, which Alan suggested be left in situ for both decorative and strengthening purposes; and the bolting down of the shed onto the base when the concrete had cured.

Scott did a great job on the edging, creating attractive curves instead of straight lines and corners, and he also put some around various shrubs to prevent them being damaged by strimming, which added a further eye-catching feature to the layout.

Both Alan and Scott worked their socks off and nothing was too much trouble - they were superstars; in fact, superheroes because they continued to work through the sweltering conditions of our June heatwave without complaint. They are justifiably proud of the work they do – it is to the highest possible standard and their attention to the tiniest detail, e.g. touching in the screw heads on the knobs on the patio fencing with black paint, was quite exceptional – no stone was left unturned, quite literally! They went above and beyond my highest expectations, which were already raised because they had been recommended to me by several different people for whom they had done work.

I am now also very proud to have such an attractive, and safe, garden. Thank you both.


The following letter was sent to us by a kind customer who we completed a patio and driveway.

Review by Mrs Davies in Bromley Br5

Project: Wood & Garden Decking

We had the entire garden, front and back fenced and a large area decked. The work couldn't have been executed in a more professional, courteous manner at a very reasonable cost. Alan and Scott rightly take great pride in their work and the whole job was completed remarkably quickly with the minimum of fuss. My neighbours are delighted with the fences they now have to look at and one of them liked our new wooden side gate so much she asked Alan to provide her with one the same! At no extra cost Alan even surprised me with a couple of planters he made up with some spare decking left over. You don't get that every day! I cannot recommend Ab Services highly enough and will definitely be using them again!

Review by Mrs Edwards in Bromley, BR2

Project: Fencing (Panels, Garden, etc)

I am delighted with the work that A.B. Services Kent Ltd. has just finished doing for me. Alan used high quality materials, and his workmanship was also of extremely high quality. Yet his prices are extremely reasonable. A craftsman of the old school. It would be hard to find a more pleasant, likeable, skilled, hardworking, efficient man, who likes to leave his customers very happy with the work that he has done for them. My garden was left immaculate ... no mess at all. And seeing Alan's work, my next door neighbour has now asked Alan to do some gate/fencing work for him, too. What I had done in my garden. A long stretch of fencing with concrete posts. I thought it would be a difficult job, because the fence sits on a low wall that had partially crumbled away and that also changed heights as it went down the garden. But Alan made light work of it, and did it easily. He rebuilt the wall beautifully and the new fence now sits perfectly upon it. The fence also had to be hand tailored because the stretch between posts was a longer than usual distance due to the wall that was already in situ. And that was all done to perfection, also. I feel so fortunate to have found someone so skilled, and have now asked Alan to lay a large concrete base for my new garden cabin, and then create a paved patio area around it. I have seen on his website some of the patios he has built for people, and I know I will be very pleased with the result Thank you Alan and Scott for a job well done. Jill - A very happy customer.
