“Excellent service. Thank you so much for talking me through everything. It really is quite rare these days to get such helpful and detailed advice and assistance – not just when it came to buying the cabin, but right through to the delivery and erection in the garden. Many thanks.”
“Very impressed with the quality of the cabin – couldn’t fault the service.”
“Thanks again for taking the time to help me choose the right cabin – very helpful service and the delivery guys were excellent.”
“Thank you for stocking and marketing a quality product and assisting me with the initial purchase, delivery and building considerations. The engineering/manufacturing of the walls, windows, doors and panels was all to a very high standard and the quality of the summer house, when completed, will be excellent.”
“Thanks for all the advice, your staff were really helpful.”
“5 star service! Would highly recommend GardenLife.”
“My summer house looks stunning, we’re going to love spending time in it!”
“The delivery lorry arrived about eleven o’clock and the driver duly unloaded two very large packages together with a small pallet containing the roofing felt. At eleven thirty my neighbour and I began to investigate these well protected packages. Sorting and identifying the various pieces, which then had to be man-handled to the already prepared base where the cabin was to be constructed. This was some 50 meters from the initial unloading point.
Just after three o’clock that afternoon, two self satisfied men were enjoying a well deserved beverage, something slightly stronger than tea, whilst admiring the 4.5 by 3.5 meter GL Log Cabin which was now completed up to roof purling level and commenting on how easily and virtually trouble free it had gone together. This was no doubt due to the well made components. The roofing boards and doors were added the following day. We had constructed the cabin without the aid of diagrams or instruction sheets, which were overlooked in our haste to get the materials unpacked, they had obviously been discarded with the packaging.
The construction of the cabin was so logical and easy, just like assembling ‘Lego blocks’ only heavier. The only problems encountered were a missing pack of nails/screws and one glass sealed unit in the door was cracked. The rolls of roofing felt had also been crushed and damaged during transit, but GardenLife have offered to reimburse any expenditure involved to replace all of these items. Are we pleased with our purchase and the service received throughout, you bet we are. The quality belies the low price.”
“Love the cabin, it looks perfect in my garden.”
“We purchased a summer house from GardenLife in Edinburgh. We are totally delighted by the product and the great service we received from GardenLife and their delivery and fitting contractors.”
“Thanks for the friendly and helpful advice, will certainly recommend you.”
“Thanks for the cabin it looks great, thanks also to the great fitters, a job well done! We would also like to say thanks for keeping us informed even though we had to wait a little longer for the cabin due to it being out of stock, well worth the wait! Would highly recommend, many thanks.”
Kev & Donna
“I am so delighted with my summer house which enhances my garden giving me my own sanctuary, a place to read, watch the birds and above all relax. Many thanks.”
“This summer house is perfect for my garden! The standard is a very high quality finish and I would recommend GardenLife to anyone wanting to improve their garden.”
“Just a brief note to say how delighted I am with the Melanie (9.6 sqm) Log Cabin I bought from you. Your service and price were superb and Greg and Craig came at 9am on Tuesday and worked right through until 8pm to build it. They did an excellent job and did not stop all day. Greg advised that I should paint the door and windows a different colour as otherwise the green painted log cabin would be ‘lost’ in the garden and I took their advice. I used two different colours of Butinox No. 3 and the result is absolutely incredible. Many thanks once again. One hugely satisfied customer.”
“I am still over the moon with my log cabin: it is such a robust building we have used it on most days throughout the winter. The log cabin has been greatly admired by our friends and I’ve taken every opportunity to tell them how impressed I was with you, the company and the delivery and erection services. All power to your elbow. Thanks again.
“I would just like to say the service we received from GardenLife was second to none and when we put the lodge up we were staggered at the price for such quality timber I would highly recommend anyone who wishes to buy one use GardenLife.”
“Took delivery of my timber garage yesterday, quality far better than I expected, thankyou for a very fast and friendly service. Will be more than happy to recommend your products to my family and friends. Pass on my thanks to the delivery team, again very friendly and helpful.”
“Blanche and I are really pleased, very good quality and fantastic value for money, we have spent many an evening in the summer house. Well done GardenLife. All our friends love it – we have installed electricity and carpets, so much fun. Thank You.”
Blanche and Paul Turner
“Wow! From our initial enquiry phone call about your range of log cabins to the final building of our new log cabin, you have been courteous, informative, efficient and thoroughly professional – especially if you said you would phone back and you did, that alone we think is beyond the call of duty! A special mention must go to the two guys who came to construct our “Susanna (12.4 sqm) ” – they were brilliant. I did mention to the them that when I was in the building trade running a team of ten, I wished they had been two of them. Thank you so much, we love our cabin which was in full use the day after they had finished the installation. Best wishes.”
Peter & Jacquie Smyrk
“We absolutely love our Summer House – we can seat 16 people inside it, it stays warm long after the sun has gone down and it is particularly special as we run a B&B, so we can escape into it, invite all our friends to parties in it and now, we have installed electricity so can have lighting, heat and music as and when needed. It also provides a really big area to store all our garden furniture during the winter months. We would absolutely recommend you to anyone considering buying one. Many thanks.”
“Thank you for a great service and a gorgeous summerhouse that is already providing us with a peaceful getaway from the house, even if it is only down the garden path! The guys who put it up were really helpful and efficient. Money very well spent. Thanks again.”
Neil and Eva Hunter
“As I have said on a number of occasions, I am absolutely delighted with the way you dealt with my initial enquiry, arranged prompt delivery and helped with advice during the installation. It made a refreshing change to be treated so well throughout, even after I had paid!! The overall quality of the materials was excellent – and I am a fussy retired surveyor – and the clear instructions were easy to follow, although the roof was a bit of a challenge, as I expected! All in all, a great success much admired by friends and visitors. Thanks again for your hands-on service John, it was much appreciated.”
“We’re so happy with our summer house, it looks fantastic! I have to say that GardenLife were helpful both before and after the sale – providing advice on size, foundations, timber thickness and timber treatment beforehand, and technical assistance afterwards (whilst we were building the summer house). Delivery was on time and the driver lifted the items over the fence and placed them next to the build area. Unpacking all the pieces took a while, but once we got the base layer sorted out the rest of the summer house walls went together almost like Lego, with window and door frames simply slotting into place, and windows and doors dropping onto hinges. The roof was a little more challenging (three pairs of hands came in handy), but with relatively basic DIY tools (and a few calls to GardenLife) we built the summer houses ourselves, and it looks amazing. We’re really happy with the summer house, as well as the advice and support provided by GardenLife, which was first rate. We’re more than happy to recommend GardenLife Log Cabins to anyone wanting to buy a garden log cabin, and we can’t wait to spend more time in our summer house!”
J & P Nicholson
“I just thought you might like to see the summer house we purchased from you, installed and painted by Ritchie at Timberheart. We’ve just had a paved path and steps installed which run from our existing patio to the summer house. The shed and the summer house are much roomier than we anticipated. We have an excellent view of the garden from all angles and the building retains heat well, even on cooler days. We are thrilled with our summer house and have been spending lots of time in it. We’ve had power installed too, so we can use a heater in the autumn. Thanks very much for the excellent service.”
“My wife, Rosy and I are highly delighted with the summer house (and my friends and family are very impressed). We look forward to spending many summer nights there in the future. Many thanks.”
“To All at GardenLife; we were very pleased with the service from yourselves & enjoyed building our summerhouse & we are very happy with the quality & construction.”
Martin & Mandy Russell
“I’m really happy with my pavilion – thanks GardenLife.”
“I now have a stunning office in a garden – envy of all the neighbours! The advice on siting and painting the office corectly was also much appreciated. Excellent service all round.”
“We are absolutely delighted with it and spend many evenings there with our aperitif… Thank you for your kind reception to my call.”
