I had a pond area, and a decking area taking away and a lovely new patio, sunken garden and steps put in

Verified Review

I cannot praise these guys highly enough. I absolutely love the finished result. They worked hard, came at 8.00 am every day despite the weather and worked till it got dark. They were clean, tidy, polite. They asked questions when they needed to and added creative details where they thought it would improve the design. It was very much a collaborative process and I appreciated the creative input. They have even reseeded the lawn where all the wheelbarrows got the better of it. Richard made regular appearances to check we were happy and Mike, James and Jack were our team. So Happy.

Installing a patio, path and garden fence

Verified Review

Richard and his team did a fabulous job of installing a sandstone path and patio in my garden to complement a new office cabin. They also installed a new fence and gate. Before the project commenced, Richard and I discussed the design and materials in detail, and he made some great suggestions which helped to overcome some of the challenges. The standard of workmanship was second to none and each stage of the project was completed on schedule and precisely how I wanted it to look. I highly recommend this excellent company and will undoubtedly appoint them again.

Porcelain laid to patio and side access

Verified Review

Richard and Mike have done an absolutely incredible job! Exactly to plan, finished to perfection and to such a very very high standard. I have to say the work ethics are incredible and Mike is a total star. I couldn’t recommend highly enough. When our driveway is to be done I most certainly will be getting in touch. Super job guys.

New Patio/Path.

Verified Review

Removed and disposed of old patio and laid new patio/path in an efficient and courteous manner. Very tidy work ethic and very polite and flexible when discussing ongoing works. The new patio and path look fabulous and we can't recommend Richard and Mike highly enough. Despite couple of minor changes we were still invoiced at price estimated so would not hesitate to recommend to others.

New Patio and new path

Verified Review

Far better than I thought it was going to be. Richard,James and the team did a fantastic job not only in building out a lovely new patio and path to the front door and around the side of the house for us but also in dealing with unexpected surprises. As well as doing the patio and path for us they cheerfully constructed a gazebo in the garden that was like a jigsaw puzzle and some extra jobs along the way. Very friendly, very professional and always tidied up behind them I would thoroughly recommend them and I am sure we will have them back again for our next outdoor job. Thanks guys

Laying a replacement block paving path, incorporating three new steps and installing replacement wooden steps and deck/landing.

Verified Review

A very careful, painstakingly done job by, mainly, one contractor because of the constricted nature of the site. Sub-contracted carpenter used for wooden steps and deck. Good cleaning up at the end of the days. They did tend to disappear at the end of the day without saying so but were unfailingly on time in the mornings. The end result was within the time quoted, at the price quoted and paid by instalments. Nice arrangement for materials to be supplied by the local builders' merchant at trade cost which I paid directly each week.

New driveway and fencing at front of house

Verified Review

Richard and Mike worked extremely hard to replace our unsightly concrete and tarmac drive with very smart gravel and edging stones. They also removed hedging and put up high quality fencing. One or two unanticipated issues arose which affected the cost, but we were fully informed. The quality of their work was excellent - we are delighted with the result and we would recommend them without reservation.

Cleared and landscaped garden.

Verified Review

Designed the new garden and gave really good advice about what would be sensible and included us in the decision process. They worked hard to keep within our budget. Turned up on time every day, worked really hard independently. Cleared the garden including Wendy house and concrete base expeditiously. Levelled and placed new patios and turfed the garden and it looks amazing! We are thrilled with it and we will continue to work with them on further plans. The whole experience was amazing and they were lovely to work with and the result is fantastic. I highly recommend them.
