This client first got in touch back in 2014 for a site clearance enquiry on land they owned at Peebles, near Edinburgh. Over time there was more and more repeat business, utilising various services we offer.

Our client was based some distance away in London and required an overgrown forest road to be cleared so it was useable again. The reason GM Land Solutions fitted the job well, was because we had the training, equipment and insurance in place to be able to carry out the chainsaw work clearing trees on the road, and offered the groundwork services required thereafter in scraping off the roots and vegetation to reinstate the road. We ended up clearing around 3km of road .

The following year, our client got in touch again regarding another site they owned in West Lothian, near Edinburgh. This project involved site clearance work – some tree work, clearing out a farm steading, ditching, fencing, road repairs and cutting reeds in fields they owned. We carried out all this work once again saving the client appointing multiple contractors, which would have been challenging to liaise with and manage from a distance.

Once again, in 2017 we were then back carrying out road repairs and drainage work.  In 2018 we were back again to do improvement works to the driveway and landscaping, to prepare the property for sale.

What the client said

“We engaged Gavin on several occasions in the past 5 years to: Upgrade forest roads at Venlaw Forest; “Top” fields at Colzium: Lay drainage pipes in a very wet field at Crosswoodburn and Ditch cleaning and road maintenance. On all occasions he has been competitively priced, carried out the work conscientiously, to a high standard and commenced and completed on or before time. Boralex Scotland will engage Gavin again this Spring for further works. A trustworthy contractor.”
