Andy and his team have taken care of every aspect of the work needed to lop and properly maintain the TPO (Tree Preservation Order) tree in my garden. I’ve had advice and support throughout with great communication from Andy and a very good price. The lads that did the work on the day were polite and punctual hard workers who tidied everything away afterwards. All in all a very professional service I’m happy to recommend 😊

We had Andy and his team attend to our oak tree recently. It needed some attention to trim back some branches and crown raise others. The workmanship and care was excellent with attention paid to each stage of the process. We had to leave about halfway through the process and on our return it was as if they had not been. They did an excellent job with the tree and with the clear up process, just what you need and hopefully expect from a professional team and they truly delivered. We would have now hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Well done Andy and team, great job.

Yet again, Andy has completed work adjacent to our grounds in a prompt and timely manner. As a school, we rely on contractors to be professional, considerate and also to consider the safety of children when they are working. Andy, as ever, worked with us to make sure we could all carry on with our work in school whilst he did his. Many thanks to him and the team at Nicol Landscapes Ltd.

I had the pleasure of having andy and his team out to a property i look after to manage some trees on our Boundary. The work carried out was fantastic and the grounds were left looking great. Andy was great with are neighbours spending time to discuss with them what their team was going to do. I would highly recommend these to anyone looking to have work done. Professional service.

Andy and his team carried out a mixed range of tasks for us, including tackling a large patch of invasive bamboo, clearing piles of old garden waste, felling a 65 foot tree just metres from the house, laying 100m of new fencing and trimming dead branches from a 100ft red-wood. Not only were the jobs carried out swiftly and to a high standard, but the team were a pleasure to have around and Andy very willing to dispense advice and even training in further management of our one acre of land. We will certainly come back to Andy Nicol Landscapes in the future and I would have (and have had) no hesitation in recommending them to others.

I had Andy and his team round to help tidy up the garden of a property I’d bought. The garden hadn’t been done for some time and they really turned the place around over a couple of days. Tidying up a couple of old oak trees, pruning all the fruit trees, cutting the hedges and clearing out a dead ivy. They left me some logs for the wood burner and chipped the bracken for me. They left the place very tidy when they left. Highly recommended for all jobs large or small.
