Two years ago I moved from North London to Portsmouth and am thoroughly enjoying this amazing City by the sea! As someone who loves problem-solving, fixing things and enhancing the home and garden, I have been doing the same for other people over the years. They have always been delighted with the changes I've made. Take a look at my testimonials.
Gardener & General Maintenance
Although you may see me inside the house as John's second pair-of-hands, my main area of expertise is the garden. I was influenced from an early age by my grandad who gardened in the Portsmouth and Gosport areas. I often watched him work and he shared his trade from pruning to sharpening tools. And, with all that fresh air, he was still working into his 90s! Whether it be garden clearance, hedge trimming, planting or weeding, I'm fast, thorough, tidy and most of all friendly!
Household maintenance and decorating
"I don't know what I would have done without this guy in recent years.
He has come to my rescue time and time again be it plumbing, electrics, flooring and all kinds of troubleshooting.
He can do anything I ask and at a reasonable price!!
In a time where people are scared of being conned, especially someone like myself who is unable to undertake work like this, John has been a total godsend to me and my family.
He's one of the good guys!
His taste in music though is questionable...". Paul, London
Bedroom painting and decorating
"John recently re-painted a bedroom in my new home. A relatively straightforward job, but as all walls are half-panelled, there was a lot of grooved woodwork. However, in my previous large Victorian house, he completely stripped and re-decorated a three-storey hallway and two bedrooms, restoring dado and picture rails, shaping them to fit sloping ceilings and curved staircase walls, a job requiring much patience and skill. At all times, on both big and small tasks, his work has been of excellent quality, his manner always polite and helpful, and all rooms were left clean and tidy. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending John." Mrs C, Bishop's Waltham, June 2017
