Richard has completed two fencing jobs and has been super kind and courteous to us and our neighbours, and was especially good with the awkward one! He's on time, trustworthy, works very hard, and completes an excellent job without cutting any corners. The fences are very straight and perfectly aligned, so good for those with a bit of OCD! We'll definitely be using Richard again. (Reviewed April 2022)
We have been fortunate to have Richard complete all our garden requirements over the last 4 years.
He is very professional and a really nice person. He carries out his work to the highest standards and nothing is too much trouble. We get many comments about the work which often leads to people contacting Richard for their own work. He is very knowledgeable and will always offer advice. He is totally reliable and excellent value for money. We will always recommend Richard and the company Maple Garden Services .

Removal of a large lonicera hedge in the garden. Richard did exactly as asked and was efficient and thorough. Would happily recommend him for any garden work. (Reviewed June 2018)
I asked for a hawthorn hedge to be removed, an old fence removed, and a new close board fence to be installed. The hedge removal was completed despite extreme waterlogging and the new fence was completed as soon as the ground had dried out enough. Richard worked flat out on both these occasions and the job was complete within 2 days in total. I was most impressed by his dedication to the job and the quality of the new fence. At the end he cleared up all the debris, including the old fence. Excellent service at a good price. (Reviewed April 2018)

We have had a new lawn laid, including removal of the existing 'turf', rotovating, levelling, adding top soil, new turf etc.
Found Maple / Richard through this website. Absolutely delighted with such a first class and professional service and cannot recommend him highly enough.
The outcomes he has delivered for the new lawn are excellent, the pricing was very reasonable ( I did have other quotes), including the additional works that I asked to be added afterwards, for tree services etc.
Richard always responded promptly to any calls, and all aspects of the works, from time taken, attention to detail, quality of materials and the way he works, were completely professional. He is also very pleasant and easy to deal with.
Thoroughly recommend Maple Garden Services

Mr Chappell is a polite, professional, hard working & very nice man who is excellent at his profession. His rates are very reasonable considering his level of workmanship. I would highly recommend him to anyone and won't use any other company for any of our landscaping needs.

My side gate from the front to back garden was in poor repair and Richard undertook to replace it with a sturdy and secure wooden gate, new posts and with a good lock that can be easily opened by me from the side-way (has a security feature that is child proof which I like), can be hooked back for ease of transit and needs a key from the outside for security. It is finished to a high standard to protect it from the elements. I am very pleased. (Reviewed February 2017)
My sister and I used this trader to tidy my father's very overgrown and unkempt garden and to maintain it afterwards. His work was impeccable. Our previous gardener had chosen to charge for visits he didn't make - but Richard attended every time he said he would which gave us peace of mind. After the initial clear up the garden was maintained to a high standard. I wish Richard lived near me so I could employ him to keep my garden as nice as he kept my dad's. (Reviewed November 2016)
Richard was very professional in his approach and expertly knowledgeable in all matters relating to gardens and lawns.
