Client Testimonials

The ESL team that visited Lawson House were efficient, hard working, polite and very good at liaising with both the residents and staff on site to ensure the gardens were looking great. Stuart Patterson and a colleague also attended this week Tuesday and Wednesday 11th/12th June and completed all of the work required to an excellent standard.

Rapport Housing & Care | Lawson House | Larkfield

I have found ESL provides a great service. The guys on site turn up on time and keep their areas clean and tidy. The supervisor is very knowledgeable and is always happy to help or assist. Overall my experience with ESL has been a good one and I would be happy to work with Joel and his team on future projects.

Balfour Beatty | Amersham Cross | Amersham

ESL was a competent subcontractor who delivered a quality soft landscaping package that our client was happy with. ESL had good communication with our site team and were responsive to meeting the dates required as we approached handover. When there were issues on site they were able to proactively find solutions and would leave their areas tidy and offered up an impressive finished product.
ESL performed well and I would recommend their services.
