Below are several testimonials from our clients.
The North Pennines AONB Partnership employed 4Nature in 2019 to carry out an access audit and to identify and cost works to enhance Public Rights of Way. The contract was part of the development phase of the Tees Swale project, covering parts of the AONB and the Yorkshire Dales National Park. We were kept well informed of work progress, they were easy to work with and obviously have an excellent grounding in Rights of Way. Our final report is very easy to follow and logical, making the access work that much easier to fit into the overall Tees-Swale project. I wouldn’t hesitate to use 4Nature again.
4Nature was commissioned to undertake an access audit of the Maidendale Nature Reserve in Darlington on behalf of it’s Management Trust. The purpose of the audit was to identify, prioritise and cost out potential access improvement works. The intention was for the report to provide evidence of condition and replacement or upgrade costs to support the Trust’s applications for external funding. We were extremely pleased with the audit and report done by 4Nature, who went beyond what we were expecting. They even introduced us to a third possible type of material we had not considered (for replacement of boardwalks and fishing platforms) that could be at a lesser cost than recycled plastics, but that could be mixed with natural wood alternatives. Both of the Rangers we work with were also impressed with the report, and we are now looking at future funding that can be used to correct the urgent repairs that were identified by 4Nature.
Jay and Toby and the team at 4Nature recently completed some vegetation management and PAWS restoration work at a number of Forestry Commission sites.
There was excellent communication regarding progress throughout and all works were carried out to a very high standard, were completed within the set time frame and to the agreed budget.
It was a pleasure to work with such a professional team from start to finish.
Jay, Toby and the important and trusted canine assistant were successful in becoming Hartlepool Borough’s preferred Rights of Way vegetation clearance team for 2017. Their professionalism and hard work shone through, with all of the paths well cut and in a very good state for walkers to use.
The work was completed well within the schedule timings and within the quoted costs. I will have no hesitation in using 4Nature for future vegetation clearance work. 2018 awaits!
All works delivered by 4Nature were complete ahead of schedule and within the agreed budget. All works were undertaken to a high level a professionalism and all relevant Health and Safety procedures were complied with at all times.
I have been very happy with the standard of work delivered which has always represented a high level of value for money. I would not hesitate contracting 4Nature to deliver works for the River Tees Rediscovered Landscape Partnership in the future.
The quotation was competitively priced, works were completed on time and to an excellent standard. Of particular significance, as the town is within a conservation area, 4Nature successfully used materials sympathetic with the environment, conserving and enhancing the area for the benefit of the town.
All work was carried out to the schedule agreed and completed to extremely high standards, thank you!
On the back of the standard of work shown during the afore-mentioned works, Jay was then awarded the work to install 38 new signposts on both The Teesdale Way and a locally-promoted route known as The Greta Walk. Again, his work was first-rate and completed within the allocated time and budget set.
Jay has also undertaken other smaller tasks for me too; including the installation of hand-rails, revetment boards and steps on footpaths where needed as well as supervising volunteers and completing tree clearance works where a chainsaw was required. I do not have any hesitation in recommending him.
