What our satisfied customers say

I hired Edinburgh Micro Diggers to excavate and level my back garden. Stewart was extremely helpful coming out to look at my project before giving me what I felt to be a very fair quote. During the job they worked in a very professional manner with a friendly and helpful attitude throughout. I would definitely use their service again and would certainly recommend them to others.

In August I needed a back garden site cleared of 3 trees and up to 20 large rooted shrubs with emphasis on root removal and levelling of the area. I was fortunate to come across the testimonials of Edinburgh Microdiggers and I must say the comments reflected the professionalism quality and reliability of this company. On phoning Stewart I immediately felt he interfaced well with people. Access via side gate was tight and Stewart agreed to visit and if workable to give a quote - he works on a fixed price for the job. I was happy with the quote and timescale - text messages ensured I knew where I stood at all times. Getting the work done by Stewart was a really good experience and, relative to previous experience with others, his personal characteristics, punctuality and reliability was a delight. When he finished he left no mess and everyone was impressed with the results. I would definitely use Stewart again - he took exceptional care not to damage anything when negotiating the small margins when entering and leaving.

Grant Innes The Grange, Edinburgh

I was so lucky to stumble upon Edinburgh Micro Diggers. I wanted to transform my garden and I am beyond pleased with the results. Stewart is a hard working professional, nothing is to much trouble and has been exceptionally helpful throughout with great ideas. Thank you Stewart.

Fiona Teyhan Bearsden, Glasgow

Stewart has done an amazing job clearing a skips worth of soil from our back garden and levelling the area. He got everything completed (including sorting the skip) in a timely manner and his communication was great. What I really appreciated was that he pointed out potential issues with moving the digger and truck over our slabs and then took additional measures to ensure the slabs remained intact. A fabulous job and I would highly recommend Edinburgh Micro Diggers.

Gary Fairmilehead, Edinburgh

Stewart was great - got back to us quickly with any queries we had, was a fair price and did the job to a high standard. Would definitely recommend and use Edinburgh Micro Diggers again.

Kim Mackay Hillend, Edinburgh

I'd like to say how pleased I am with the work which Stewart and his son did in my garden. It was a particularly difficult task removing matted bamboos roots along a wall. I would not hesitate in recommending him.

John Brown Craigleith, Edinburgh.

Extremely impressed with Stewart, did a great job in really challenging circumstances. It was a big excavation, foundations, and additional drainage - carried out during a very wet spell and involving sticky/heavy clay. Truly grim conditions, but he kept going and completed the job to a high standard and managed the changes along the way superbly. A trustworthy, hard working, reliable, and quality tradesman. I wouldn't hesitate to use him again; and would not consider using anyone else.

Axel Thomson Straiton, Edinburgh

I would highly recommend this Company. They were punctual and very obliging. I needed the rockery cleared and my raised bed taken away along with a bed of overgrown shrubs. They completed the job without damaging the rest of the garden. I was well impressed. They completed the work to a high standard. Thanks once again.

Brenda McCafferty Parkhead, Edinburgh.

I can’t thank you (and Jim) enough for the great work putting in my extension foundations. Not only a great price but your speed, quality of work and professionalism have left me very happy and glad I went with you for the job. I will be in touch very soon for the solum work and you will without doubt be my go to guy for any future ground works I need carried out.

Gavin Whyte Morningside, Edinburgh

Stewart did excellent work clearing our back garden. It was a difficult job, tight access and in winter conditions but Stewart did a brilliant job. High quality work and a lovely person too. I'd definitely use him again. Thanks Stewart!

Kirsty Lynagh Portobello, Edinburgh.

Jim and Stewart were absolutely fantastic from start to finish with all they did for our groundworks, garden, decking and patio. They were professional, well-priced, and went above and beyond to ensure an extremely high standard of work throughout. I would highly recommend them to anyone. We are so pleased with all the end results. We found them great, hard-working and kind people. Five stars from us.

Kirsty Forgan Dreghorn, Edinburgh

I contacted Edinburgh Micro Diggers when we urgently required some work done as a result of another contractor bringing work forward.

Within a couple of hours of my sending an email I had a response, a visit the following day and the work carried out within a few days. Really pleased with the work, the very reasonable cost and the promptness, and would definitely recommend.
