“I have a rental property and Clive is always on hand at the end of a tenancy.  After a horrible eviction experience recently, I used Man About the House and Garden to repaint the property and tidy up the front door.

Clive has also hung blinds, fixed curtain poles and carried out various carpentry work.  I have no hesitation in leaving Clive with the key.  His work is excellent and the property is always left clean and tidy.

No job is too much trouble and I would certainly recommend the services of Man About the House and Garden.”


“We have used Man About the House and Gardens on a number of occasions and would thoroughly recommend Clive to anyone looking for ‘handyman’ services. Clive has fixed broken fence posts, fixed leaky taps, painted some internal walls, unblocked sinks and the list goes on. Clive is extremely knowledgeable and always comes up with a solution.

He is extremely pleasant, incredibly trustworthy and is definitely a useful contact to have in your phone!”

“Clive has now undertaken several jobs at my house. These include boxing in some old pipes and creating a cupboard around them; tiling and painting my bathroom; adding new drainpipes and guttering to my home office.

He is always on time and budget. He is completely transparent and will show you if anything unexpected has come up and what he needs to do to resolve the issue, rather than just billing for it. He is so versatile that no matter what I throw at him, he is able to come up with a solution which is always of the highest standard.

I have recommended Clive to friends and family, who are equally as happy and will continue to do so.”


“Once again we are extremely impressed with the standard of workmanship when creating the cupboards under our stairs. You always work out how to solve a problem. We are delighted with the practical yet ingenious way the cupboards open without the need for a handle and the fact that you have preserved the original Victorian bead & butt panels.

You have now done our kitchen worktop, our kitchen cupboards, our cloakroom cupboards and now our cupboards under the stairs.

We have no hesitation in recommending you for any handyman work of any kind and in fact, most people in our street have now used you and are equally as happy.”
