    Olivier’s work is absolutely outstanding. He has transformed our garden, using his expertise to achieve exactly our vision and guiding us along the way when we needed it. He, and his team, are friendly, polite and extremely hardworking. We will definitely be recommending him to friends and family for any future projects.

    Oliver Barwick is a prompt, efficient and courteous tradesman who gives practical advice and has carried out several tasks for us. His work is of high quality and leaves behind no mess. I cannot recommend Oliver and Hippo Designs and Construction highly enough.

    Oliver and Dave did a great job completely transforming our garden. This involved a decking area, two separate porcelain patio areas,a porcelain footpath down the side of the house, laying a new lawn and planting 2 main bedding areas. It’s a complete transformation we are very pleased with. They were prompt, friendly and produced work to a very high standard with keen attention to detail, working throughout the job, whatever the weather. We also valued Oliver’s creative eye and patience in helping us agree the plants to choose that will hopefully thrive in different areas of the garden.Thanks
