Customer reviews for this trader
Re-purposed an old greenhouse foundation and after careful preparation, laid heavy new paving slabs in the same space to make a faultless new foundation ready for the new greenhouse. Worked quietly and very hard despite having manually to move all the materials and kit needed up to the awkward position. If you need a good quality job doing, Dan's the man, but not if you need 'cheap and cheerful'. I'd certainly use him again.
I asked Dan to rebuild a stretch of tumbled-down retaining wall. The site was overgrown, on different levels and the quality of the stone was poor. In short it was a mess. This is the second time Dan has worked a miracle and turned a right old mess into a strong, well-built walled area in the garden. He has a good eye for what's needed for his work to fit in well with its surroundings. In addition, he completed fencing to keep out the deer which had taken a fancy to the vegetables. As a result, I now have a secure and attractive walled garden. Dan has knowledge, experience, resourcefulness and a wide range of skills. He responds quickly, attends when he says he will, is clear about his reasonable costs and works very hard. It's good to have someone you can trust completely and on this basis, I'm happy to recommend Dan wholeheartedly.
We contacted DG Environment about repairs to the retaining stone wall at the front of our property. A part of it had collapsed following the recent heavy rain and it urgently needed building back up to prevent the garden falling into the roadway. Dan quickly came and assessed the damage and provided a very reasonable quote. The work was done quickly and to a very high standard in terrible weather. Dan is pleasant and polite and no mess was left behind. We cannot fault DG Environment and following completion have been pleased to recommend this business to several neighbours who have commented on the quality and appearance of the work .
Dan is a real perfectionist and does a thorough job every time. I have no hesitation in recommending him for any landscaping work.
Efficient, good worker, splendid job making and fitting a new gate and cutting my hedge, and trustworthy. I will use DG Environment again.
*Customers Feedback* Dan from DG Environment is the most untrustworthy person I have ever met or had to do any of our jobs. I was not happy with the finishing job of my fence. I found him to be rude, arrogant and very good at twisting things to suit him. If anyone decides to give any jobs to him then our advice will be to record every conversation you have regarding the job he's supposed to do or put everything on paper. He does the job how he likes to do and not how he is supposed to do. It's our biggest regret deciding to give our fence job to him. We never ever want to see his face again or want him to do any jobs for us - even if he is the last man standing. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone and our ratings for him is 0/10. *Traders Reply* An original member of Derbyshire Trusted Traders (2009). In all this time, and all the many feedback entries, this is my first negative comment. It appears this couple continue to sulk. Annoyed that I was not prepared to give them a discount. As employees of Derbyshire County Council, they felt that they were 'entitled' to a reduction disgraceful. Coupled with the fact that I was unwilling to carry out any more unpaid jobs around their property. This is despite fixing a wall and making modifications to the fence at no extra charge. I carried the cost of the additional materials. They now have a fantastic, hand crafted, structurally sound fence. I have received nothing but praise and compliments from their neighbours. As a result of replacing a completely rotten fence the streetscape is transformed. The works were carried out to the letter of the quote and the price was honoured. Interestingly, I have been paid in full. Derbyshire Trusted Traders have been invited and encouraged to examine the fence. I have nothing to hide. If only someone more deserving could benefit from this quality job. I will happily give more details. Fellow trades people be warned.
The project involved replacing a relatively large garden patio and building a new extension to the patio together with new stone walling and decorative features. The work was completed to a very high standard and in line with the original quote and on completion the site was thoroughly cleaned. We have no hesitation in recommending this company and would certainly use them again if we need additional work in the future.
Dan works incredibly hard and is a real perfectionist. Not the cheapest but you definitely get what you pay for. We wouldn't use anyone else for all our landscaping needs, this is the third house he's worked on for us. I recommend him to anyone who asks.
Got on with the job in quite awful weather.
Dan came and helped us design our new garden. We knew it would be a big job to make our garden useable and we are so happy with how it's all turned out. It's everything we wanted and looks so much better than we could of imagined. They removed hedges and bushes, removed a pond, built fences, levelled and laid patios and laid turf. They worked so hard throughout the heatwaves and kept me up to date throughout. I have and would recommend to anybody.
Dan visited to price up the job as requested. He told us he was busy but gave a good indication of when he would be able to carry out the work. We were happy to work with this. True to his word he contacted us to start the work as he had indicated. Dan and his colleagues worked hard every day to complete the job and completed it as promised. We are very pleased with the work and many of our neighbours' have commented that the work has made a great improvement to our drive and that Dan has done a very good job. Many Thanks Merrick.
Dan came to our house then designed and made an inspiring patio seating area. He worked hard and created a wonderful design that we love. His attention to detail is spot on, and his price was perfect for what we had done. Whole heartedly recommend.
Came when he said he would, got on with the job as agreed and tidied up afterwards. Couldn't ask for more.
Dan did an excellent job and worked very hard too. Despite a tricky access he got it all done efficiently and was always tidy and mindful of surrounding neighbours land etc. He turned up when he said, quoted and communicated well too. The end result is great and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the company.
Dan and his team did an several jobs for us including re-building a stone wall and supplying and fitting a new gate. They worked very hard and we were delighted with everything they did. We would not hesitate to recommend DG Environment.
I am very pleased with the work carried out to replace an old damaged garden fence, DG Environment provided a quote and confirmed the work required to fix this. They carried out the work very professionally, and the standard of work was good, also the time taken to complete the work, very efficient. The fence has been made to order and has really enhanced the garden. Everything was left in a very tidy order on completion. I would definitely use again, and recommend to anyone considering fencing work. The work completed was the same price as the estimate, so no nasty surprises on the final bill. A job well done!
Dan provided me with a very reasonable quote for repairing two sections of dry stone wall limestone. He arrived when he said he would and just got on with the job. The wall has been rebuilt to a high standard and blends in with the original. Despite heavy rain he left everything clean and tidy. Always polite and professional. I will definitely use him again.
Fantastic workmanship, reliable, diligent, and even cleaned up perfectly afterwards. Removed a shabby old section of concrete blocks from an otherwise nice old stone wall, and fair to say you can't now tell where one starts and the other ends. Helpful, punctual and polite throughout, and gave solid advice where needed. 100% will use again for rest of our garden.
