Running a household, working and having a busy family life can take it’s toll. It can be hard to stay on top of things all of the time. So from time to time, it is nice to have a break from it all. One of those things that I find it hard to keep ahead with is the garden. I know I am lucky to have a garden, but over summer, it really is hard work. It just grows and grows, as do the weeds unfortunately too. So when Fantastic Services offered to send us round two of their gardeners from their gardening team, it was pretty much a no-brainer!
I made the booking over the phone and it is all very clear what they will do and they take you through the side of the garden and what it looks like at the moment. Then they know who to send over and how long it would take. We had two gardeners for two hours and it made such a difference to the garden.
One of the best things about the service is that they take the garden waste (up to a certain amount) with them. We are no strangers to having builders or workers in our home but have always had to arrange the disposal of rubbish or garden waste. So it was nice to know that it was pretty much taken care of. A big plus from me!
They cleared our borders and gave the garden a general tidy up. They cut the grass (front and back gardens) and trimmed the hedge in the front garden. It hasn’t looked this neat and tidy for a while! They had ladders to trim the hedge which was a bonus. We haven’t often been able to trim it properly as we haven’t had the right ladder for it!
I liked that they brought all of the equipment that they needed. So if you have just moved to a new home and don’t have lots of garden tools, they can still come over. Definite peace of mind not having to stress about not having the right equipment to get the jobs done.
I think it is great that you can book online, as well as over the phone. You would need to check which areas they service, though. At the moment it looks like London and the South East and the North West are the only areas.
You can clearly state what you would like doing, and they will send over the number of people to get the job done. Fantastic Services also offer household cleaning, handymen, rubbish removals, house removals, pest control and builders. They aren’t a company I had heard of before but are definitely a company I would book with again. The gardening was carried out to a good level and the gardening team that came to do it were completely professional. I have since requested a quote for some tree surgery, so I can honestly say that I’d recommend them, and companies like https://www.treeserviceremoval.com.
The prices of the services offered do vary, but having had a cleaner in our home before, I know that they are very competitively priced. Have you heard of fantastic services before?

This sounds like a fab service. We could really use some help in the garden. Thanks for sharing with us for #KCACOLS Hope you’ll link up again next Sunday!

This is such a great idea! I would happily pay for someone to come and sort our garden out and get rid of our weeds! #KCACOLS

Hi Rebecca, this sounds like a great service. My hubby is the gardener in our household but the fact they offer a variety of other services is great – especially house clearance etc. Thanks for sharing. #KCACOLS

We’ve been toying with the idea of getting a gardener as my hubby hates having to mow the lawn! I hadn’t heard of Fantstic Services before but will give them a look. Also, you have a lovely space in your garden. #KCACOLS
Getting a gardener was one of the best things we ever did, even before the busyness of being parents. Great reviews. #kcacols
