Here's what my clients have to say



‘John and I would really like to thank you for coming to help us in our 'hour of need'. We love our garden and are desperate to get it back into a state where we can enjoy being in it and enjoy more of the beautiful view from the house.

We are now well on the way to both! You came to discuss the work with us beforehand and we knew at once that you were sympathetic to our needs as well as being so knowledgeable about plants and planting.

You were able to make just the right suggestions to enable us to bring our rather rampant garden back to form and beauty. We do appreciate the way in which you work with us to achieve the effects that we want. We would certainly never have achieved what you have done in the few days that you have worked with us.

A big thank you, we would certainly recommend your expertise, thoughtfulness and workmanship to anyone.’

‘Ken was very professional in his approach, working with us in advance to design our revised garden layout and the plants that might go in it. His collection of photographs and drawings helped enormously with this process, especially given our limited knowledge of flowers and shrubs.

He was very flexible in terms of fitting in with our schedules and the changeable weather and, before commencing, contacted us to confirm timings.

We are delighted with the result, as are our neighbours, and are looking forward to seeing our new garden bloom. Ken sourced all plants and materials and, having looked at other providers, we found his charges very reasonable.‘

Ken first came to our ‘wilderness’ after I saw his web page and was impressed by his passion for gardening. We were looking for a gardener who was not easily shocked as our land was quite overgrown.

As well we did not want one who would judge us for having let the garden get into this state. Some 10 years ago we had wanted a house with a garden big enough for a trampoline and climbing frame for young children. However, once these were no longer used we were left with a large outdoor area to maintain, only to be added to the list of things we did not have time to do at the weekends.

When Ken first started we had a vague idea of him tidying up the garden and making it less of an embarrassment, especially as we have keen gardeners living either side of us. I did wonder if we would ever see him again after his initial visit, but rather than be shocked I think Ken was delighted by the challenge that we had presented to him and he could not wait to get his ipad out to take the ‘before and after’ photos! He was so enthusiastic and full of ideas and advice that it became quite infectious. For the first time since moving into the house we started to feel excited about the potential of the garden we had. He also insisted on including us in the decisions about plants and flowers and he was not at all put off that our level of knowledge was to name them only by their colours.

Ken has started to transform the garden and has longer term plans to make it better still. Instead of seeing it as an area for our cats and the wheelie bins we now have this attractive area in which to sit and relax. We really appreciate what has been created for us. I have to confess we are still not keen gardeners ourselves and prefer to do other things with our free time but helpfully Ken offers an ongoing maintenance service.

I would highly recommend Ken to anyone with a garden to tame. He has so much enthusiasm and knowledge and brings all the necessary gardening tools with him; he even brings his own flask of coffee! Above all he is reliable and trustworthy.

Thank you so much for your great help in digging over and sorting out the big perennial plot for me. It has been a pleasure to have you here. I am glad you have enjoyed being here and that you would be willing to return! I hoped to be back in time to say thank you and ask if you would do more work…

Mary Mills | Burton-On-Trent November 2014





‘I can wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend the ‘Milhart Gardening’ experience. Ken has transformed the front of my house and given it back its ‘kerb appeal.’

I like to see a nice garden and I recognise what makes an attractive garden but find myself with limited time and sadly limited ability. In just one day, Ken managed to give my front garden a complete face lift. I now thoroughly enjoy pulling onto my drive at the end of a long day at work and feel very proud that my front garden certainly holds its own in relation to the other gardens in the street!

Ken offered a very professional service, from design meeting, to working within a specified budget and leaving the working area absolutely immaculate. My only reservation is that as plants are living things I am now tasked with the challenge of keeping my beautiful garden alive!! Oh, dear! I feel I may need further support from Ken in the future.’

"Ken gives first-class service at a modest cost."

"We are very pleased with the results you have achieved and look forward to specifying further work to develop a cohesive planting plan and possibly a relevant maintenance programme."

Mr & Mrs I Garth, Shenstone, Staffordshire. April 2014





"Wow! I can't believe what a super job you did with my garden, Ken. It is exactly what I wanted, and thank you for giving me some thoughts on how I can continue to create my little haven. Thank you also for being there to give me continued advice. I would highly recommend you, not just for the brilliant job, but, your time keeping and clearing up after a day's work."

Liz Warren, Atherstone, Warwickshire February 2015





"Thank you so much for what you have done in my garden. I think it can now truly be called a garden, and certainly is transformed. I am really delighted with the outcome - a great job."

Cath Haslam, Coventry March 2015





"Having purchased a bungalow that had been empty for a very long time and the garden neglected for several years it presented us with, what seemed to us, a mammoth task.

We managed to clear the brambles etc. but were left with a desolate patch of a garden. Having found ‘Milhart Garden Services’ on line and after a meeting with Ken things looked up. Ken transformed our patch with his enthusiasm and creative knowledge into alovely garden in a few short days. My wife and I are truly grateful for such a great and reasonably priced serviceand would whole heartedly recommend 'Milhart Garden Services’."

"Very many thanks for your hard work and creativity in making such a difference to my garden. The herb "room" is really lovely, and is both beautiful and useful. As you know, my garden was struggling to be ordinary, and it is definitely moving much closer to the sublime. I look forward to the next phase in its transformation."
