“I have been meaning to write to you on behalf of the Owner of the Estate to express his very great satisfaction in the work that you and your Firm undertook to create a wonderful new lake. You were notably thorough in understanding the requirements from the outset and patient in designing and redesigning the feature in order to meet the requirements of the brief and also the demands of the Planning Authority.

During the construction phase, White Horse were organised, tidy and diligent. The end result was delivered on time and on budget and has exceeded all of the original hopes and expectations of the Owner. We would recommend you and your firm to others wishing to create something similar .”

Lauren Meek.

“I was most impressed with the consistent professionalism of the White Horse Contractors team, from supervisors to ground workers, and look forward to working with the company on future projects.”

Dr Weedon, Watercourse Systems Ltd.

“White Horse Contractors was efficient and extremely flexible whilst working on a complex desilting project in Oxfordshire. White Horse delivered the project exactly to the timetable predicted and within budget. I would have no hesitation in working with them again.”

James Bouskell, Pond Consultant and Host of Ponds at West Park.
