‘Wall repairs left our garden a muddy mess, with only the patio remaining. We asked TGS for help. The brief – provide a small easy to maintain garden and vegetable bed. TGS suggested a stepped tier and wall up from the patio, two 1m x1m raised vegetable beds on one side, a smaller, slightly raised 3m flower bed on the other. Remaining area to be levelled and laid with artificial grass. The design worked well. It has turned what had been a mediocre space into an attractive, extremely usable garden.
TGS kept us informed all the way, the service they gave was excellent, professional, efficient, friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We’re more than happy to recommend them.’
Linda and Andy Strange, Salisbury, February 2020
‘Teal and his team have provided an excellent gardening service to us for several years now. Most recently Teal advised on, sourced and installed a row of pleached hawthorn. We are delighted with the result.‘
Nick Jones, Salisbury, March 2019
‘Just to add my most sincere thanks to you all for the wonderful new garden we now have. It really looks fantastic and we are so grateful for all your hard work and for being so flexible to fit in all the various little elements that became apparent needed fixing. We are now so looking forward to planning the planting and getting it all looking flowery again!‘
Chrissie Jones, Salisbury, February 2019
‘We had been looking for a gardener for a couple of years and couldn’t find anyone to help us. They were too busy or simply never came back to us. So it was brilliant to find Teal. He and his team are helpful, friendly, efficient, knowledgeable and totally reliable. They get the job done and most importantly, they listen. In total contrast to a couple of local gardeners we used about 10 years ago, who seemed keener on imposing their grand schemes on us without really bearing in mind what we wanted. I recommend Teal without hesitation’
Tim and Jane Bishop, Salisbury, January 2019
‘We are delighted with the transformation of our garden undertaken by TGS which was completed within the agreed timescale to a a very high standard. We had a split level garden repaved to make it wheelchair friendly, existing flower beds raised, an additional raised flower bed completed and some other general maintenance. Teal and his team provided ideas and allowed time for planning. Teal managed all aspects of the project, from supervising all deliveries to daily updates. He and his team went the extra mile to ensure we, and our neighbours were not inconvenienced as much as possible.
The TGS team were all, without exception, punctual, hard working, respectful and friendly. They tidied the site at the end of each day, and on completion, everything was left neat and tidy. TGS were professional throughout and we would not hesitate in recommending them, and will certainly be using their services again in the near future.’
Steve and Alison Potten, Romsey, February 2018
‘We couldn’t be more pleased with the work TGS carried out for us.
From initial conversations to final result, Teal has been patient, thorough and accommodating. He has a good understanding of what will suit both the client and their garden and works hard to make the most of the project. When discussing quotes, Teal gave us several options for each element of the design, allowing us to work out our priorities and stay within budget. When on site the team were polite, methodical, clearly knowledgeable and a pleasure to have around the place.
And for dog lovers, Kubuli the Labrador is an added bonus, she’s so adorable it was hard to see her go!’
Georgie & Simon Lippiett, West Wellow, December 2017
‘Teal and his team completed the work required on budget and on time, transforming an uneven and overgrown garden into a blank canvass ready to be worked on further. We’re very satisfied with the result and intend to have them return to complete the next step.’
Simon Wade, Romsey, October 2017
‘Teal gardening services is true to their word . They are a friendly yet professional team . They totally understand the brief and are very good at offering options that’s will definitely bring the work to light.
They revamped my side garden from the jungle it was to a very lovely easy managed yet beautiful garden.
Looking forward to what will be done to my back garden!’
Henrietta Idiotic, Romsey, May 2017
‘From initial enquiry to completion of the work, Teal and his team provided a highly professional, friendly, courteous and very conscientious service. Our small patioed garden has been almost totally revamped into flowerbeds with artificial grass with due attention to drainage requirements and the relaying of a path designed constructively. A perimeter fence has been totally replaced.
Teal and his colleagues have been a pleasure to have on site and we have no hesitation in recommending their services.’
Geoff and Sandy Gibbs, Romsey, May 2017
“Teal and his team revamped our front beds by carefully lifting the existing box hedging, adding soil improvement and grit, and replanting the borders with hydrangea annabelle and replanting the original box hedging. We are delighted with the new borders, which come the summer will look amazing.”
Duncan Lillistone, Romsey, February 2017
“Thank you Teal first for your prompt reply to my initial query and subsequent excellent communication.
You and your team have done an excellent job in trimming all our trees and for the care and cleanliness you and your team exercised.
I will have no hesitation to recommend you to others.”
Peter and Cathryn Baxter, Romsey, January 2017
“Teal and his team have been working with us to restore and develop our 4 acre garden for nearly 5 years now. We have always found him to be highly reliable, unfailingly hard-working (even in the worst of weathers!) and resourceful. He has a good practical knowledge of gardening and garden management and is well equipped and well supported by an equally hard-working team. He is also proactive, offers advice and suggestions, liaises with nurseries, prepares quotes and collects trees and shrubs for planting. He is always keen to get the job done and will go the extra mile to achieve it. Nothing is too much trouble and he is a pleasure to work with. We would have no hesitation in recommending him.”
Philip and Arabella Chalkley, Dean House, West Dean
“Teal and his team have been a great find for us. Teal’s experience and advice has been very valuable and the whole team’s hard work in all weathers has kept our garden looking good. Many thanks.”
Adrian Bateman, West Wellow
“We are very happy to write this testimonial for Teal’s Gardening Services. The work carried out was to completely replant the front garden and put trellis up – to turn the front into a ‘country cottage garden’ which included paving the path at the front.
The results have been exactly what we asked for and our Garden is lovely. In the summer it looked really beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for a better result.
We have found Teal and his colleagues very courteous and very meticulous in their work. They get on with the work and are very hard working.
Additionally, we have used Teal’s services to carry out work on the back garden, removing some shrubbery and replacing with turf – again the results are exactly what we asked for.
We intend to use Teal’s Gardening Services in the future and are very satisfied with the work done to date.”
Simon & Paula Marshall, Dunbridge
“Teal and his team were a pleasure to deal with. Calls were returned promptly, Teal was clear about the cost of the work and they delivered a superb job exactly when they said they would. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.”
Dan Geddes, Romsey
“With a three quarter acre garden, surrounded by hedges and trees, we have a year on year need for a reliable, professional and, for us, personable gardening service. Fortunately in discovering Teal’s Gardening Service we found just what we wanted, and as a result have used Teal’s services to undertake a variety of work twice a year for the past three years. Unlike many single-handed gardeners, in his team Teal has access to the range of garden maintenance skills we require. He always takes the time for a preliminary visit to discuss our needs, chooses his team well for the job needing to be done, and ensures work is completed on time and the garden is left tidy.
On all fronts we have been very satisfied with Teal and his team members. We consider him value for money and are very happy to recommend his services to others.”
Stan and Alison Farrell, Sherfield English
“Offers friendly service with a smile, that is timely, professional and within budget.
Very reliable and genuine on product knowledge.”
Sophia Basi, Shirley
“I moved to my house 7 months ago and have ‘just put my garden to bed’ a phase I never even knew existed!
The house I moved to had an established garden and a new owner that knew nothing about gardening! I decided I didn’t want a gardener, but someone who would be prepared to teach me about my garden and why and when things needed to be done.
Teal embraced my idea and has been patiently been teaching me about plants, seasons, composting, pruning and equipment. There is no ‘mud’…..I have earth. ‘That plant’ now has a name and my ‘chopping’ is now careful pruning.
Teal’s enthusiasm for gardening is contagious. He will discuss my ideas, put forward ideas and help in anyway he can to make my learning easier.
In addition, hedge cutting and a major prune were necessary when I first moved here. Teal’s team undertook both jobs with diligence and care. They were punctual, friendly and tidy.
Thankfully Teal’s patience has enabled me to enjoy and begin to understand my garden – a new hobby and passion I hope will last for many years.”
Kate Stainton, East Tytherley
“We have had several, quite large jobs undertaken by Teal Standen and have been very well pleased with his thoroughness, workmanship and innovation. Always full of good suggestions to further enhance our simple plans, he takes great care over every stage of work. We cannot fault his diligence and conscientious standards – which are well above the average.”
Chris Craig, East Grimstead
“Our garden had been neglected for a few years, but Teal and his team quickly got it back into shape. Now, with their monthly visits, our garden is a growing source of pleasure for us.”

“Since we moved into East Grimstead, Teal’s Gardening Services have been looking after our garden especially our extensive hedges.
We have found them to be both professional and reasonable priced and always do an excellent job.
Teal makes a point of keeping in touch throughout the year, keeps a record of work done and is always on hand to offer advice. We would certainly recommend TGS.”
Nigel Bailey, East Grimstead

“I could not have a more ideal person to assist with turning a wilderness, into a garden to be enjoyed. Teal has boundless enthusiasm, he is patient, he listens to what you hope to achieve and together with his knowledge of plants (and what is feasible) a plan is agreed for each area that he is tackling. If you are considering having help in the garden I couldn’t recommend Teal highly enough. A delightful guy, honest reliable and hardworking- everyone should have a Teal!”
