  • Driveway aco grills and re-levelling of block paving.

    10Verified Review

    11 years after 1st Choice Driveways installed a large block paved driveway I have had them back to upgrade aco drains and relevel a section that has had a lot of traffic. All completed in half a day. My first choice for driveways and associated groundwork.

  • Driveway and garden landscape

    10Verified Review

    Very happy with both the driveway and reconstructed garden. The work was carried out with professionalism on time with little or no disruption to our daily lives. All the workers involved were highly skilled, kind and considerate. They also left the site tidy and clean each day. I would highly recommend them as reliable and professional, having pride in their work.

  • Removal of shrubs and raised garden bed, creating a fully block paved driveway.


    Caine and his team have done an excellent job of my driveway. Caine provided good advice, a reasonable quote and started work promptly, upon request. The team worked relentlessly until completion. They were very well mannered and respectful to my neighbours throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend 1st Choice Driveways to anybody seeking to have their driveway/patio converted/improved.

  • Rear garden patio slabs

    6.5Verified Review

    This type of work is only as good as the labour provided. We found loose patio slabs at the end of the job which trader tried to rectify 6 months on and we still have same problems despite promises to return and rectify.
