  • Garden Design and Landscapeing

    10Verified Review

    John asked what were our requirements and helped design the garden to specifications and budget. The project was extremely demanding as the garden had very large cambers in two directions with very large tree stumps and roots to contend with. The soil ( about 30 tons), roots and stumps removed and whole garden levelled. A wider drive and parking area installed with a new sewer and soakaway with connecting pipework and inspection chambers. Finally a new front wall and retaining walls erected to complete the work. John consulted with us to keep project within our budget.

  • Fantastic Job From Start To Completion

    10Verified Review

    Massive Job to re vamp our front garden that had massive tree roots and stumps to remove. The garden had a large incline in two directions so it was levelled ( removal of at least 30 Tons of material) and a new soak-away installed along with new sewer pipes and inspection chambers. A new front wall has been built the driveway widened and retaining walls erected all round a new parking area. John consulted with me all through the three week project when any unforeseen problems popped up and always offered a couple of solution's to help keep to our budget and time scale.

  • Re-build patio, install drainage, replace/extend all garden paving and paths, extensive landscaping.

    10Verified Review

    Absolute Armour and sons are true experts. John Armour helped us rationalize our ideas into a practical plan and has delivered to us a wonderful result. His team worked very hard in persistent rainy weather to overcome many hurdles apparent in this project with unwavering courtesy and enthusiasm. Consideration for our neighbours was shown at all times, and the site was left tidy every evening which we greatly appreciated. This is the third project that John and his team have completed for us and we would not hesitate to recommend his firm.

  • Remove decking, lay a new patio and path. Create new flower beds and lay a lawn using quality turf.

    10Verified Review

    I would throughly recommend Absolute Armour and Sons. They’re an extremely knowledgeable hard working team with a high standard of finish. 2 large decking areas were removed. A large platform of concrete was discovered underneath which also required removing. The grounds were carefully prepared for the next stage. A new patio and path were laid. New flower beds were created and a new lawn as laid. My garden looks fantastic now, I’m so pleased.

  • To replace a failing resin surface of a twenty car car park and driveway with block paving


    Absolute Armour and Sons were on site for just over a month recently to replace our twenty space resin car park and driveway surface with block paving. The quality of the workmanship is exceptional throughout and the commitment and professionalism of the Absolute Armour team first class. I would thoroughly recommend them!
