The whole "Garden Story":
I wanted to get it sorted for Dyl so he would be able to have a lovely little environment to kick a ball around, maybe have a swing set...
Richard contacted a friend who is a gardener and he gave us a decent quote and with a handshake the matter was settled. He advised he would have this done within 4 Days.
Two young lads came round at the beginning of the week to gut the garden, dug up the grass and slabs, with the promise of removal the following day, this never happened.
Since then (which is now 8wks ago) no further work has been done with the Garden.
He called us on the day the lads were in the Garden saying he was at the warehouse buying the goods and to transfer £500 for him to get the supplies. Stupidly (but with no reason to distrust given he has been Richards friend for 20+yrs) we did this.
Numerous calls were made with promises of arrival to finish the job, nothing happened.
He turned up with a roll of artificial grass saying it was ours and placed it in the garden, 4 days later he came back for it saying it wasn't ALL ours, and needed to take some for another project.
He then dumped a load of sand in our Grove supposedly for the job, two lads shoveled a few lumps of this into our garden two weeks ago, again nothing more has happened.
He has been given chance after chance after chance and we are without a garden.
All I wanted was a lovely little garden for my beautiful Boy to play. Nothing complicated, just something simple. We've now been left with muddy mess.
This man has purposely taken £500 of our money knowing he would not complete the work, regardless of the years of being a friend.
