Thanks to Complete Weed Control so far this year. Both the fertiliser and selective weed treatments have had fantastic results. We will continue using this great service & would highly recommend. Many thanks to Simon & the team. Scott Byers. Head Groundsman at K Sports, Cobdown. We appointed CWC to oversee the excavation and encapsulation of Japanese Knotweed. Despite delays cause by the weather the team were flexible and enabled the work to be completed within the required timescale. CWC liaised with the Environment Agency and managed the process throughout with great thoroughness and professionalism throughout. We would be pleased to contract Complete Weed Control for similar projects in the future. Northlake Limited. I employed Complete Weed Control for this season’s weed spraying of kerbs and pavements throughout the Shepway District. The organisation and communication was efficient and professional which instilled confidence and reassurance that they understood the task in hand and the specific requirements and conditions this Council has. The operational crew always had a willing and polite attitude, reporting each day on progress which was backed up by CWC’s web based tracking system, which I found to be a valuable tool. CWC took ownership and the spraying schedule was carried out very effectively and without one reported incident, mishap or complaint. I was very pleased with the team’s work ethic, the manager’s communication and response and the crew, who were impeccable. I have no hesitation in recommending CWC Kent. Shepway District Council. I am writing to thank your staff, company and yourself for a First Class service at The University recently. Your staff were all very professional and efficient at what they did, the work was completed with no fuss and a great deal of enthusiasm. Furthermore they kept us informed of any issues or problems that had arisen during the day. All in all I would have no problem recommending your staff and company to other grounds managers with whom I am in contact. University of Kent.
