Stimpsons was formed in May 2000 by Tim Stimpson. Tim has been involved in the garden, landscaping and building industry from a very young age, with both his grandfather and father being groundworkers. Since leaving school in 1992. He worked initially at the age of 16 for a nursery and landscape company in front lane Cranham, Essex for 6 years before working for a large national landscaping company, providing services to the commercial and domestic sector including the local Council. Throughout these years he began with "hands-on" positions and quickly worked up to managerial roles, where he found he missed the doing part! This, therefore, led to Tim starting up Stimpsons, as he could combine the planning, arranging and doing parts, along with providing a dedicated “hands-on” personal service.
Since starting, we are pleased to find we are getting many clients coming to us upon recommendation and past clients coming back to us for more work and are gaining great recognition on the Which Local ? web site and New from 2017 we are starting to slowly build good recognition on the TRUSTATRADER site
Our aim is to provide a professional and friendly realistically priced Driveway, Patio, Garden, Paving design and build service from initial visit through to highly detailed construction of your project. Unlike a lot of our biggest competitors - We do not mark up prices depending on your property or the area you live in, or use any Sales people, instead we use a fair set price system priced per metre for all our potential customers, the only part that differs from this is the overall finished design, Steps, Walls, Hard Landscape Features, Planting, Curves etc.
We strive very hard to achieve complete customer satisfaction during and after completion with our above industry standard sub base and our low cost maintenance packages.
We take great pride in our workmanship as we are passionate about the landscapes industry and I have a very good eye for detail however large or Small.
Please look around our site at our photos, if you need to take a closer look please see some of our past clients reviews under the "FEEDBACK" tab (UNDER SERVICES) please contact us with some addresses to view, some of the jobs available to view were built over 5 years ago, so you will get to see how our work stands the test of time !
"All advice and help, along with a basic Plan drawing (on booking) and the quote is *FREE of charge ."
Once you have contacted us for a quote, we will arrange a convenient time to call round and discuss your requirements and view the area, we try to do this on a Saturday, as we can spend more time with each client . At this stage it would be helpful if you have a basic idea of what you would like and a rough budget that we can work with for large projects, we will bring round our online portfolio along with a free magazine from our main suppliers.
After our initial visit and site viewing we will call you with a fixed price quotation usually within 5 days and backed up with a basic quotation, if this is verbally accepted this will be followed up with a written quotation usually within 7-10 days. This will provide full costs for all works as requested and will describe fully the materials and procedures used
All quotes are valid for 3 months and if acceptance is received within this period, the price is held until we commence works. Outside this time a re-quote may be necessary,
but Unfortunately we cant hold a date for the work any longer than 10 days from your first quote, especially during the busy months, April - October, due to very high demand.
We do not request a deposit at the time of acceptance unlike a lot of landscape companies for the work , only a small *£100.00 refundable deposit for the FREE drawing provided, this will be deducted from the Payment on completion. Please give us at least 4 weeks notice if there is a change of circumstances, we will advise the start date to you in writing and also an approximate time to complete works.
In some cases stage payments may be required (but normally if the work to be done exceeds £10,000). The stage payments will be fully described in the quote and the balance of works is then payable upon completion only.
Once work has commenced, Tim is always available to answer any questions you may have, or to discuss any changes or additions you may be considering. If you are at work during the day Tim is just a phone call away.
Tim will be on 'site' from the very first day and will be able to contact right through to completion.
Tim will ensure that your property is left clean and tidy upon completion, with areas being pressure washed where applicable and all rubbish involved with the work removed.
Once works have been completed, if you have any queries, please just give us a call.
"We welcome the opportunity to meet with you and offer you a quotation for your Paving or landscaping project."
