    Excellent work, we are really happy with the new look of our front garden. Quick to complete the work but done to a very high standard. Quiet when working, tidy throughout and very considerate of our home. We will definitely look to use Richard for any further work we require.

  • Extension, Purbeck Retaining Walls, Steps and Patio

    9.75Verified Review

    We are absolutely delighted with the work Richard and his team have done. This was a difficult long term project that entailed pushing back the garden before the extension was built. In addition the retaining walls were built in Purbeck stone. Fred (JF Wallis) did a fantastic job matching the bricks on the extension and building the beautiful Purbeck Wall and central steps in the garden. We are delighted with the limestone patio and pond that Richard laid. It all looks WOW! Richard put together a good team. His wife, Michelle was always on hand and very efficient. We highly recommend R&M.

    10Verified Review

    Richard and his team laid my patio to perfection, thank you so much. The workmanship was outstanding, the men were hardworking, polite and respectful. The project was done at a very fair and competitive price. This is an excellent, trustworthy and reliable company with a can do attitude, and one which I would highly recommend. A big thank you also to Michelle for managing the business side of things so well and for keeping me informed every step of the way.
