Customer reviews

“The bale are a great bunch of people and company to work with. Trying to find reliable garden people is difficult. We have busy lives, and just wanted our garden to be looked after as well as our house is. After trying with other companies we eventually came across the bale by word of mouth. The bale team always communicate with us in order to evolve as our family grows. We have also hosted many pivotal family events and occasions in our garden with assistance by the bale. They just make it all easy and possible.”

– AJ Richards, Oxford property

“we are so happy and relieved to have met the bale – a garden once quite difficult and slightly agricultural in style, has now become far more enjoyable and manageable. A big thank you for your ‘very so often’ support and we will have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to neighbours, friends and family in the future. The team are not only extremely helpful in a knowledgeable way but it’s always lovely to meet up with them again at the next visit”
