Thank you Danny for getting stuck into a very hard job. Muddy, rainy conditions and Danny kept going and lifting hard until the end. Strong and hardworking. Gets along well with others.

Tolly M.

David has been outstanding. Arrived early and ready to dig into the job giving his all and going above what we expected of him. He puts others at ease and a positive team player. Contagious energy, strong, proactive and supportive. 100% recommend!

John G.

I hired Danny to do some paint work and he ended up doing about 10 different jobs! Very hard worker turned up on time and just grafted. Highly recommend

Andy T.

Punctual and hard-working, I would hire Grant again and highly recommend him.

Tony M.

My first project using a Grafter and wow…what a grafter. Ben communicated clearly, turned up promptly and put a full shift on some heavy duty ground work in our garden. Polite, self sufficient and a real nice guy. Highly recommend.
