What Our Clients Say...

  • Managing Director of Skyline IFE Ltd

    We employed Greengrass to tackle the difficult task of repairing and restoring the borders and car park of our company premises, which had been left to grow wild over a period of years. Nick and his team spent a week here and the results was a professionally restored exterior. Their attention to detail and thoroughness of the work reflected their good reputation. I was and still am a satisfied customer.

Your experience combined with enthusiasm and obvious desire to achieve customer satisfaction certainly has been reflected in the finished product.
