Dan has done some excellent work for us everything from garden maintainace to new fencing and complete new sandstone patio. good and reliable.


David Ragan, Oct 12’2018, Sandhurst

Dan is a super guy and did everything we wanted. Both the front and rear lawns now look terrific with lush artificial grass bounded by sandstone bricks. Fantastic new path with Indian stonework sets off the grass. Nothing was too much trouble and the estimate given us was set in stone and very competitive in price. He was always on time and the work was completed on time. Highly recommended. He always appreciated a nice cup of tea from time to time.


Eric & Sandra Jones, Oct 9’2018, Heatherside, Camberley, Surrey

Dan was very helpful right from the start of our garden project, making very constructive design suggestions. His work was very thorough, completed within the estimated timescale and at the agreed price. He went out of his way to be helpful and carried out a couple of extras that we thought about as the job went along. He made sure that we were satisfied with the work before he left. I would certainly recommend him to friends & family.


Paul Lattimore, Oct 2’2018, Blackwater

I met Dan when he was doing my next door neighbour’s patio (see Hayley Shilson’s testimonial). A really nice guy who I could see was making a good job. I have recommended him to a couple of friends, who were pleased with his work and have just had him fit me a new back gate! He has made an excellent job of this for a fair price. I always try to use local people when I need a job doing and apart from knowing what he is doing, I am very comfortable to have him on my property.


Barbara Taylor, Sep 21’2018, Sandhurst

Reilly ( 4yr old Border Collie) really loves his new garden that Dan has created. His new patio is warm enough to sunbathe on, the retaining wall provides a comfortable back rest after an energetic game on the new artificial lawn which is so gentle on his paws (no muddy paws now).
I love to sit and gaze at this wonderful outdoor space. You have done a great job Dan and we have no hesitation in recommending you to create a perfect outdoor space. We will be enjoying ours this summer.


Dian (and Reilly) Olive, May 18’2018, Sandhurst

Dan has just finished making a new patio for us at the back of our house. We were very impressed with the way he worked in rain or shine and the end result including the finishing has the wow factor. Also a raised bed at the far end of our garden filled with good soil and compost is ready to be planted. Thanks Dan


Beryl Page, Feb 20’2018, Wokingham

My small garden was a mess with broken fencing and rotting decking.

Dan removed all this fencing and decking and now I have a new paved patio and stepped shingle beds. All fencing has been replaced and a gate installed to allow access.
All work done is of a high standard and was completed on time .

Dan is very approachable and gave me helpful advice.
I would not hesitate to recommend him and his work.


Chris Rees, Feb 3’2018, Crowthorne

Dan and his team at Selwood have done a great job removing 6 very large leylandi from our garden. They turned up on time, did a very efficient job and left the garden in a clean and tidy state. All this on two of the wettest days this winter. We would be very happy to use their services again, as would our neighbours and their chickens who are delighted with their new found sunlight!


Den and Jackie Patterson, Feb 3’2018, Camberley

We needed our very old fence replaced. Dan came round to give various options and quoted for all.
We now have a superb new fence, the work was completed on time without issues.

I have no hesitation in recommending Selwood.
Thanks Dan


Dennis, Dec 21’2017

Dan has done several jobs for us over the last couple of years including erecting a new fence, laying a patio, building a pergola and laying a shed base. All have been done to the agreed timeframe and to a high standard. Price has always been very competitive and Dan’s easy going approach has made the process hassle free. He also knows his subject well and is good to bounce ideas off during the design stage. We’ll certainly be using Selwood again!


Cliff & Alison Spencer, Dec 17’2017, Camberley

We have used Dan for various jobs in the garden over the past 10 years. he has mainly done heavy gardening work, tree felling, trimming and replanting. We have recently used him to replace a significant amount of decking with a multi level patio and steps area. Whatever he has done he delivered a quality result, and you can always rely on his advice in suggesting changes and improvements. Always worked to time and budget.


John Rhodes, Dec 14’2017, Crowthorne

Dan (Selwood Landscaping) was very approachable from the offset. Had lots of suggestions and ideas to share and no pressure to decide. He was very reliable and communication was excellent. Am very pleased with our patio and Dan also comes with a cute spaniel called Bella, (sorry Dan , you’re not as cute!). Would highly recommend Dan for any of your garden needs.


Hayley Shilson, Oct 14’2017, Sandhurst

Both front and back gardens were totally overgrown and weed infested.
Dan cleared and transformed them with patios and paving and also by erecting raised beds and gates in the front garden that has completely changed the look -very much for the better!
He worked so hard in the recent 30 degree heat and did a fantastic job which I’m very pleased with.


Bees Garden, Jul 10’2017, Frimley

Dan has just finished erecting a 10 panel fence for us, which looks fantastic. He completed the works quickly and without fuss. Thankyou! I would highly recommend.


N Jones, Apr 7’2017

We recently had a garden fence erected. After discussion this was done and all spoils cleared.
If you want a good job done Dan’s your Man


M Elkins, Feb 23’2017, Bagshot

We enlisted Dan’s help to remove a very large, overgrown hedge of 26 fir trees and replace them with new privacy trellis all round the garden. Dan also sourced us some new plants to replace the fir trees, as well as planting them up. He and his team did a great job; turned up when they said they would and also cleared up after they were finished. We’re delighted with the result. We can’t wait to enjoy our new garden when the summer comes.


Sarah Cooper-White, Feb 21’2017, Englefield Green, Surrey

Dan did a brilliant job in erecting a new fence in my front garden. He also recommended the bushes that would best suit my needs and that would require little maintenance. The job was completed within the allocated timescale even though there was heavy frost nearly every day. I would highly recommend Dan for any landscaing/fencing work and I would definitely use his services again for any further work.


Mike Foster, Jan 27’2017, Yateley

Dan did a fantastic job on landscaping our garden, he came up with brilliant ideas and understood how the garden would cater for everybody’s needs. We are so happy with it and cannot wait until summer! Thanks again Dan!


Carita Wilson, Jan 13’2017, Bagshot

Dan recently completed a large fencing project, replacing old, rotten side and rear panels. Not the best time of year (2nd week of January), but Dan completed all the work to a high standard, including removing the rotten panels, ivy etc within a week. Myself and my neighbours are very pleased with the end result. This is the third time I have used Dan (he removed a couple of trees for us) and will certainly use him again.


Tony Armitage, Jan 13’2017, Sandhurst

Dan did a fantastic job removing and replacing all the fenceing panels in our rear garden and a new side gate. The end result is perfect and exactly what we wanted for our garden and our side gate.

We would recommend Dan for all over your landscaping requirements and we will be using his services again in the near future!


Mr Wrance, Oct 31’2016, Sandhurst

An excellent job completed by Dan! Within one week Dan removed over thirty rotten fence panels and the original concrete posts before replacing them with brand new posts and fences. He was faced with some challenges having to work around the tree surgeons during this week but despite this the work was completed to a very high standard.

Would recommend and we will be using his services again in the future.

Matt and Sam Rance


Matt Rance, Oct 30’2016, Sandhurst

Dan rebuilt wooden steps & a platform down our garden bank We were delighted with the quality of his workmanship & his ideas for improving the original feature He worked hard throughout some inclement weather to complete the job on time Thanks Dan for enabling us to make full use of the whole of our garden again


Richard Turpin, Mar 4’2016, Sandhurst

We asked Dan some months ago to replace the roof of a much loved shed,
to fell a tree and to replace some fencing that had been battered by the weather.
It’s been several months now since the work was done. The tree is long gone and
despite the extremes in the weather the roof on the shed remains solidly in
place, the shed is dry and the fencing still keeps our garden secure.

Three good jobs – well done.


Steve Evangelou, Jan 10’2016, Sandhurst

Dan has restored our faith in garden contractors. Earlier this year we employed a team of “comedy” fencers for a smaller job. They had to do the job twice over and still couldn’t cement fence posts in straight, so we were naturally apprehensive about getting more work done in the garden. We could not be more relieved and delighted by the quality of Dan’s work. He turned up when expected, was pleasant and friendly, offered advice about planting, reassured us that our shed base didn’t need replacing, and his quote was very competitive. We now have a beautiful new fence the full length of our garden, and would have no hesitation in using his services again and recommending him to others. An all round enjoyable experience.


Patricia, Oct 22’2015, Windsor

What a find! I thought I needed a new shed – my current one is 40 years old! However, when Dan came to quote he said it was sound and he could just move it to my required position. This he did and I am really pleased.
Thank you Dan.


ANGELA ELLETT, Oct 7’2015

We are absolutely delighted with our new shed and base supplied by Dan. It has transformed an otherwise dull corner of the garden and the work was carried out in a friendly and conscientious way and on time. Nothing was too much trouble and we have already recommended him to a family member.


Graham Garner, Oct 1’2015, Bracknell

Dan has done Fencing, a small Patio and Garden paths for us. His work is excellent and he is friendly and easy to work with. We have already recommended him to one of our friends. Marks: 11/10

Margaret & Derek Elkins


Deek Elkins, Sep 27’2015, Bagshot

Dan, was with us for a week and completely transformed our garden. He took all my plans and ideas and brought them to life. He battled through the most appalling weather and got the job done on time. I would thoroughly recommend Selwood for any garden work. He goes the extra mile to get the job done.


Jenny & Steve Rance, Sep 1’2015, Bagshot, Surrey

Excellent job was carried out by Dan in replacing our rear garden fence and gate. He also carried out the removal of a Silver Birch tree.
Everything was done in clean and tidy fashion and he is a great person to have on site
and is to be well recommended.


C.Derry, Jul 24’2015, Yateley

We commissioned Selwood Landscaping to replace our garden fence in July 2015. Dan and his team were punctual, clean and tidy and made a first class job. My wife and I are extremely happy with the completed work. Without hesitation, we highly recommend the services of Selwood Landscaping and would definitely use them again in future.


P Smith, Jul 23’2015

Dan recently supplied and constructed fencing with trellis plus gate to the front and side of my property which has improved and enhanced my garden. It has also provided the privacy and security that I required. I found Dan to be very efficient and professional in his approach to the work despite toiling in over 30 degrees heat! I have no hesitation in recommending him to future clients.


Peter Moss, Jul 8’2015, Sandhurst

We were really pleased with the results of Selwood Landscapings work. They created a new border and repaired an existing one and built a small brick edging using some reclaimed bricks. They were very reliable and always willing to offer advice and guidance. We would have no hesitation in using them again in the future.


D Evans, Jun 14’2015, Yateley

Excellent work Dan. Clare and I are very happy with the fence you’ve put up. An excellent job.
We would thoroughly recommend you to anyone who requires your services and will definitely be giving you a call next time we need something sorting.
Thanks chap.


Gary, Jun 2’2015, Blackwater

Dan has done a few jobs for us now and has on each occasion done a thoroughly good job, whether it be fencing, gates, or tree/plant work. Where there are options to how work should be done he will discuss these before and during the work and is flexible to the approach required as the job develops. He works hard to get jobs done in a timely manner but always with good humour!


Norman House, Jan 30’2015, Yateley

Dan transformed our overgrown, jungle-like front garden into an elegant gravel drive with new fencing and edged flower beds. We couldn’t be more pleased! I would be very willing to recommend Dan to a friend, in fact we have recommended Dan to a neighbour. Dan is hard working, honest, willing to go the extra mile and an all round nice guy!


Nicola R, Jan 17’2015, Ascot

We have used Dan for three different projects, two fences and a replacement gate. We are extremely pleased and impressed with the end product, quality of work, and professionalism. Dan is very dependable, very proficient, very quick, and very organised and tidy. We will definitely use his services again and feel confident in recommending him to our friends.


Peter & Jane Vosser, Jan 14’2015, Camberley

I was really impressed with the quick, professional and competitive service Dan offered. I had a fence replaced and not only was this done perfectly but everything was cleaned up afterwards.

I have asked Dan to return to do some other work and also will be discussing a landscaping project in the Spring


Sarah P, Dec 2’2014, Binfield

Dan has just completed a back gate renewal which was the second job he has done for us following a recommendation by a neighbour. Dan does a very professional job at a good price and we are very pleased with the result. One of the things that comes across is that most things are possible and I cannot see too many challenges that would phase Dan. We will certainly keep the Selwood business card handy.


Peter Williams, Nov 20’2014, Frimley

A new garden fence plus a new gate were required. Dan came an gave me a very acceptable quote. Job completed in the time promised. A complete transformation for my garden. Dan works competently and thoroughly, giving heed to his customer’s needs, and is more than considerate to any neighbours. Thank you Dan, you can be sure that I will call on you again.


Brenda, Nov 18’2014, Camberley

Recently had a new back garden gate and fence put up by Dan. He was very friendly knowledgeable and helpful and did a first class professional job. Nothing was too much trouble for him, we would definitely recommend.


Geoff, Nov 5’2014

Dan has turned our garden into a place we now really enjoy to be! New Fencing last summer & replacement of our sleeper wall last month…including fab new steps onto our lawn from the patio, really chuffed with the outcome. We’ll be booking in for our new Patio before the year is out. A smooth, professional process from quotation to installation. Thanks Dan


Mike & Charleen, Sep 2’2014, Camberley

Dan was very prompt in coming round to quote us on 9 new panels to be erected and a new gate. Dan is extremely helpful and very confident and happy in his job. We love our new fence panels and gate excellent work and fully recommended.


Cherry, Aug 13’2014, bagshot

Dan worked through atrocious weather conditions to erect a first class rustic fence. He is a very friendly and helpful chap and I would not hesitate to use him again or to recommend him to others.


John McCallum, May 28’2014, Camberley, Surrey

Dan has just completed a second project for us – renewal of a back fence. The work was carried out quickly, neatly and in the time as quoted. There was no mess and no old fencing left on site. He worked extremely hard to ensure that the look of the new paneling was just right. We are delighted with the result and have no hesitation in recommending him and Selwood Landscaping.


Liz and Conrad Lapointe, Mar 13’2014, Camberley

Dan was recommended to me by a neighbour who was very pleased with the quality of his work. Dan responded promptly to my enquiry and quickly arranged to carry out the necessary work. The work was carried out with care and great efficiency and we are delighted with the outcome. Dan and his colleague are friendly and very customer focused. I have no hesitation in recommending him.


Nigel Blackie, Mar 12’2014, Camberley

Just had new fencing panels erected by Dan, the old ones were time expired even without the recent storms! Fair price, good quality panels, and a good job overall. Very pleased.


C Harris, Feb 19’2014, Sandhurst

We required a lower maintenance rear garden which would also accommodate a garden room/store.This involved removal of an overgrown border & erection of new fencing.Dan’s advice & quotation were clear & professional.He is a tidy and energetic worker and caused minimum disruption.We are very pleased with the result and hope to engage him for further work as required.


Eric & Mary Barrett, Jan 24’2014, Sandhurst

Many thanks for all your hard work, it really does look very good and my neighbour was very impressed too and asked me to pass on her thanks for tidying up her side too!

Have a good Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.


Sally Renolds, Dec 10’2013, Frimley

Having broken a leg and being unable to do urgent jobs, we saw an advertisement for Selwood Gardens in “GU15?. With some trepidation we phoned to ask for a quote. Dan turned up when he said he would, gave us a most acceptable quote and completed the work in a few days. No mess, no fuss and no complaints from the neighbours! He replaced broken fence posts and panels and built a small patio. We asked him to return to do a couple of other jobs on our ’round tuit’ list including mulching the borders – a job we hate! His next job sheet is being prepared!


Mr & Mrs Bentley, Oct 20’2013, Heatherside

With our back garden needing a complete overhaul with new fencing, new turf, new plants and tree re-shaping, we were recommended Dan and Selwood Landscaping. Ever the professional, Dan was great at talking us through what would be best for our garden and usage. His quote was very competitive, with staged payments as the work was completed, giving us complete faith that the work would be carried out as quoted.

All the work done was of an exceptional standard, with the garden being left in a clean and tidy state each day as the work was being carried out.
We would not hesitate in recommending Dan and Selwood Landscaping to anyone who wants an exceptional looking garden/grounds.


Donna and Rich Bowers, Jun 28’2013, Fleet, Hampshire

Dan is very chatty, knowledgeable, thorough, clean and tidy and a very likeable character. People buy people first and Dan is a people person. He tries to understand what you want and gives you what you what. I find him first class. He has worked for us many times and we have always been delighted with his work. I would definitely recommend him


Alan Bentley, Jun 24’2013

My front garden needed a complete overhaul, which meant is was a big job:

· 4 trees needed removing

· stumps grinding

· 30m of bushes removing

· 30m of ground needed leveling

· 50m of fencing needed erecting

· A complete new lawn with 50+ shrubs and chippings.

The work was carried out with military precision (whether it was raining or not) and I was always kept up to date on the work carried out. I even got photo updates sent to my mobile as I was out of the country during some of work.

The estimate was spot on – and payments where scheduled as phases of the project were completed – no surprises and no hassle.

I was extremely pleased with the outcome and would not hesitate to recommend Dan’s work. He was reliable, hard working and delivered on every aspect of the project. I am going to use him again for my back garden next year!


Ian Broughton, Jun 23’2013

I engaged Dan primarily to fell a tall conifer tree and cut back an oversize laurel hedge, both to facilitate future building requirements. I also requested Dan to prune/trim various other trees in my garden. Dan took time to understand my needs, ensured he delivered on my requirements and willingly offered advice and guidance on how to prune/maintain my trees in the future. I am extremely happy with all aspects of Dan’s work – the laurel hedge was cut back to the required line, the conifer was expertly and safely felled and the various other trees were all pruned as directed. I was especially pleased with the way in which Dan cleared the site and left it in a clean and tidy state. The quality of Dan’s work is very high, he is very knowledgeable himself and employs a very helpful and equally knowledgeable team to assist him when required. The team work well together, they are good at their job, happy in their work and very helpful in ‘going the extra mile’. I was particularly pleased with the way Dan organized the work, offered suitable dates to meet my tight building deadlines and completed the work on time and to budget (and at a very competitive price!). Dan is well qualified in his trade and offers excellent help, guidance and advice on all aspects of garden maintenance – he takes pride in the service he provides. Dan’s strengths lie in all the points covered above. I will have no hesitation in recommending Dan’s services to friends and neighbours.


Malcolm Armstrong, Jun 10’2013

Kay and I would like to thank both yourself and Phil most sincerely for the work you carried out in my and my neighbour’s gardens. We could not have asked for a more caring, more co-operative or better qualified team! The nature of the work was not always straight forward requiring, as it did on occasions, quite a lot of ‘a bit more here’ and ‘a bit more there’ – but throughout the work you were extremely helpful and co-operative, both in cutting back the laurel hedge to meet my future building requirements and in offering advice and guidance on how best to prune and trim the various trees. I know my neighbour Rod is very happy with how his laurel now appears, and equally I know that Brian will be extremely pleased now that his ‘unwanted and unloved’ conifer has been felled! ……….. oh yes, and ‘log burning brother’ will be well pleased with the further supply of fuel that you kindly cut up for him!. We would also like to thank you so much for the way in which you meticulously cleared the site and left it in such a clean and tidy state – it was good to see the garden looking so much neater after you’d finished! Thank you, too, for being such cheerful and dedicated workers – and such well informed conversationalists to boot!


Malcolm and Kay, Jun 8’2013

Dan was employed by us initially for a new garden gate. We were having trouble with our old shed – he looked at it – he built a new concrete slab, had the shed made to measure and put it up for us. Again another good job. I canot speak highly enough of the work he did for us. He is a very pleasant person to do business with and he has done a very high quality job for us. He is very, very approachable and friendly. His quotes I thought were very competitive. The quality of his workmanship I really cannot fault. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.


Laurence Strutt, May 22’2013

Selwood Landscaping gave a very competitive quote for the work we wanted doing to the Nursery Garden here at Lyndhurst School. The work was carried out quickly and efficiently and we are very pleased with the result. I can recommend them for any project you may be considering.


Lyndhurst School, May 15’2013, Camberley

Having just moved into a property with a back and front garden that required quite a bit of TLC, my husband and I needed somebody who could do it all—Design, planting, decking etc. We chose Dan over 3 other quotes because when he came to give a quote, he spent literally hours with us at our convenience listening to what we wanted, giving us ideas, and putting a plan together—before we even hired him! He then gave a reasonable and competitive quote. At that point it was clear he was knowledgeable, intelligent, motivated and also easy to talk to. He’s pleasant to have around, flexible, works hard, and clearly loves what he does. This shows in his work, and his attitude. He brought tons of shrubs and plants over and there was just one we didn’t like– He took it back and brought a different one the next day with a smile on his face. Having had to deal with a couple unpleasant builders recently, working with Dan was a relief and reminded us what it’s like when people actually take pride in what they do and want to make the client happy. He is also quite generous and went beyond the call of duty helping with things he really didn’t have to. We’ll be asking him to come back when we develop our gardens further. Thanks, Dan!


Anna and Thomas, Mar 8’2013, Kew/Richmond

We are very happy with the service from Selwood Landscaping. Dan met us to discuss our gates & fencing requirements, and was happy to offer advice and samples, and was willing to discuss these at our convenience. Once we had agreed on the style and details, the quote we received was a reasonable & fair price, and the work was carried out to a very high standard of craftmanship. The fencing looks and feels very solid, and the gates are actually very beautiful. We are very happy with Dan and would definitely recommend him, though his looks and humour do bear more than a passing resembalence to Sean Lock from “8 out of 10 cats”.


Bill Jenssen, Feb 28’2013, Sandhurst, berks

Selwood Landscaping transformed our front garden from an eye-sore to one with wow factor. We have received several compliments and are so pleased with the outcome. They were great to work with and we would highly recommend them.


Mr & Mrs Sugden, Jan 18’2013, Sandhurst

We are very pleased with the work, and care you took over our plant and how clean and tidy you left the site.
I think you may have left it more tidy than you found it!!!
We would definitely recommend you.


Pat, Jan 10’2013

Selwood Gardens have been doing work on my garden for me for many years they always do there work to the highest standard. They have never let me down and are always cheerful and approachable I always highly recommend them to anyone.


Mrs F, Apr 20’2012, Wokingham

I was dreading days of noise, mud, mess and the possibility I’d be at the mercy of an amateur, but when I spoke to Dan at Selwood Landscaping I knew I had made the best choice. Sound advice, great suggestions and a very fair price to sort out my awful front garden. It was transformed within a day and a half and not a speck of mud out of place. A simple and beautiful result. Now, I really like what I see when I open the front door.


Mrs Garcia, Jan 20’2012, Owlsmoor
