My wife and I have used the services of Mr. Knibbs on several occasions on garden maintenance and enhancement and would recommend his services to anyone. He is hardworking, very knowledgeable and is building up a excellent reputation for his trade within the local community and beyond.

I understand that Mr. Knibbs also volunteers his expertise at weekends to help Welshpool/ Llanfair Caereinion Light Railway.

" Mr. Darren Knibbs did a first class job clearing and tidying up our acre of woodland which is quite steeply sloped and was extremely overgrown. He took out all the rubbish, left patches of undergrowth for ground nesting birds and cover for Pheasants and Rabbits etc. He trimmed the trees and lopped off dangerous branches , repaired a wooden bridge, placed green chicken wire across another bridge to prevent slips, falls and mended a couple of wooden-fronted steps.

He also cleared a very steep bank above a pond, re-instated a path two feet above the waterline, dug away mud, reinstated two wide paths and turning area by using a good covering of stone. He bought and used his own Machinery.

  Now more Wildflowers are emerging and we have received many compliments from our guests as they walk around or sit on the benches provided to enjoy the now more extensive views down through the woodland.

  We can thoroughly recommend him for his workmanship, variety of services and the price was very reasonable.

            Many thanks for your work on my property, section felling a large Larch, bordering a public road and reducing a much overgrown multiple leader conifer hedge. He performed this work in a very professional manner, is extremely tidy and has great respect for his surroundings. On top of that he is a very nice person to deal with .            I have not hesitated recommending him to other people.                               Many thanks

Mr Knibbs has been employed by me for an average of one day a week, since last year. I have found him honest, punctual, and diligent, undertakaing landscaping and drainage work, although his prime task is gardening. He has a range of garden and landscaping machinery, which attracted me as many labour intensive jobs have been quickly done. He has also attended to a number of trees being a skilled tree surgeon.

I got to know Darren Knibbs at Oakbeech Valley some time ago. I first contacted him to cut back an over grown hedge alongside a crop field. He worked hard until the job was finished. He then came with his digger and cleared ditches, more hedgeing work and ground clearance. I find him to be a very pleasant hard working workman that always clears up, once the job has been completed. Also for work completed his charges are very reasonable.  I would certainly without doubt recommend him

Dear Darren,

                       I would like to thank you for cutting down the large tree that was next to my house and my neighbours gable end. You arrived promptly and worked diligently until the tree was down and site cleared. I am grateful for all your hard work and hope to have you back soon to remove the other large tree. Thanks again and good luck in your business.

Hi Darren,

Thanks for your email. Just like to say how pleased we are with the excellent work that you have done for us, with the tree felling and getting our overgrown hedging back under control.
