What our satisfied customers say

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.

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.

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.

Alan Whittet Morningside, Edinburgh

Stewart, Jim (and Kyle at the weekend) dug out and poured the foundations for our 3.6 X 5.7m extension. From initial contact through to the end Stewart was always prompt at replying to my messages.

They know their stuff and gave me some really good general guidance on my semi self-build project. They started early Friday and were done and dusted (and all cleaned up) by Saturday lunchtime.

They're a really friendly and professional bunch and I'm happy to recommend them.

John Faulds Hillend

Stewart was very professional and helped us out to complete a job to remove 20 tonnes of earth and replace with 16 tonnes of Type-1 hardcore for our driveway. It was a bit of push to organise the skips to get them in an out in time for the Type-1 that Stewart arranged for us. Overall, it was a great job and I would highly recommend Edinburgh Micro Diggers.

Simon Salter Cockenzie

We love our patio. We have a small courtyard garden that we wanted paved and the levels changed to fit with a new patio door. Stewart and Jim were great, they came to visit the site before starting work, sent me photos of previous jobs, suggested paving slabs and suppliers and ways of laying the paving and dealt with problems that arose during the build. We are super happy with the workmanship and the drainage in the courtyard. Everything was delivered within budget and on time. Importantly Jim and Stewart are really lovely blokes who it’s a pleasure to have working in your home.

Tana and Simon Portobello

I strongly recommend Edinburgh Micro Diggers. We needed 20 tonnes of rubble removed from our back garden, and the only access point was through a tight doorway at the back of the garage. We hoped that Microdiggers would be perfect for the job, and it turned out they were. Stewart arranged hire of the skips and turned up at 8am with his Diggers. He cleared the entire 20 tonnes, which included a solid concrete wall, in a single day.

With only one short break for lunch, he even had time to clear a few extra bits and pieces and to smarten up the areas he had cleared. The place was virtually spotless when he left. On top of that, his charges were extremely good value for money. I doubt I could have hired the equipment that he used for much less. I was extremely satisfied with the job that he did, and would recommend him to anyone that needs stuff cleared or moved, whether you have tight access or not.

GCK Comiston, Edinburgh

We found Stewart and Jim very informative and clear with upfront costings, providing good advice working to our budget. Two genuine men who were very efficient, left no mess and took a pride in their work. They listened to their customer and we were extremely pleased with the end result. We would not hesitate in recommending Edinburgh Micro Diggers.

John and Elaine Mortonhall Park Green

I just wanted to say thank you for completing the work on my drive yesterday.

I'm thrilled with how it all looks now, as it has been a lot of work to get it to this stage.

Many thanks for your quick responses to my questions etc. It's been a really good experience which hasn't happened often (unfortunately). I therefore would always commend somebody who does a very good job.

Many thanks again - appreciated

We recently used the services of Edinburgh Micro Diggers to clear a large overgrown border at the side of our house which we had inherited from previous owners. They carried out the task in a very professional manner, from estimate to completion they organised skip hire which arrived and was removed on the same day.

They cleared the entire border, levelled it and even removed tree roots and left our pathway spotless on completion. First class service - we would recommend them as a reliable professional and competitively priced company.

Mr Burnett Fairmilehead, Edinburgh

“I recently called in Edinburgh Micro Diggers, to estimate constructing a concrete base for a garden room. I had previously attempted, unsuccessfully to try and dig this by hand. Access is fairly limited to the area.

Stewart and his team, carried out this work, carefully taking care of the surrounding trees and garden. The whole job was completed quickly, on time and neatly tided up on completion. I am very happy with the finished result. I highly recommend Edinburgh Micro Diggers, they are very nice to deal with, the job done to a very high standard, and I would most certainly use there service again.”

Richard A. Craigentinny

Stewart of Edinburgh Micro Diggers completed the foundation works efficiently and precisely.

He took great care in ensuring that our landscaped areas around the foundations were retained in their current condition whilst undertaking the works.

We were very pleased his workmanship and would highly recommend him.
