New Driveway and Retaining Wall
Ground Designs (Dean Joynes and Rob) did a fantastic job of replacing our very old and tired tarmacadam driveway with block paving and installed a retaining wall on one side as there was a considerable slope. Dean and Rob worked tirelessly in the heat of August/September and always tidied up after each day. We a delighted with the end result. This was Dean's second project for us and we cannot recommend Ground Designs highly enough.
New fence and new lawn.
We have hired Dean many times over the years and we have only ever had positive experiences. Dean and his team are always professional, courteous, extremely tidy, always eager to give an opinion if you need it, friendly and respectful. We would highly recommend Ground Design Southern Ltd to anyone wishing to upgrade their garden.
Laying patio and building planters
Would recommend Dean Owen and Luke to anyone who is looking for ideas and how to design the garden Dean was very professional throughout. He was very helpful and recommended some good ideas. Luke and Owen worked really hard for the two weeks that they were at our property. They showed respect. Very welcome and very approachable. They were not the cheapest company but we were glad we went with them in the end. Even when we changed our minds throughout the project they were happy to comply with our wishes we were very pleased with the end product I would definitely use them in the future .

Everything was PERFECT.

Bamboo removal and fences/gates
Excellent job well done by Dean, Luke and Owen, very happy with the results, was a large bamboo removal job requiring mini digger, 5 tons of soil removed to dig down and remove all traces, fences replaced with concrete posts and kick boards, amazing service and couldn't recommend highly enough, attention to detail was perfect, was great to have Dean and the Team from Ground Designs working on our garden for the time they were here. Will 100% invite them back for future work and recommend to anyone requiring their services. Much appreciated. Darran, Kirsty and the boys.
Replacement of patio and installation of paths to shed and summer house
Dean and his team of Owen and Luke worked tirelessly to complete the project before Christmas to a very high standard. We are delighted with the replacement patio and the excellent new paths now allow us to reach our shed and summer house in all weathers. Dean and his team tidied everything up after each day and were a pleasure to have around. We would have no hesitation in recommending Ground Designs.

Landscaping the front and back gardens.
We are very happy with the work that Dean and his team carried out in our gardens. The job was very neat and tidy and to a very high standard. They were very polite and considerate, and we would recommend them to anybody who wants a good job done in their garden.
Patio and redesign of landscaping for rear garden; raised bed, shed base and working area, new lawn.
Absolutely brilliant team, thoroughly recommend. I have been planning this once-in-a-lifetime project for 15 years so wanted to make sure that it would be right first time, using a contractor I could trust. Dean came up with creative and cost-efficient suggestions to improve my design and protect me from cost increases during these volatile times. Dean, Luke and Owen were the dream team - turning up at 08:00 every day and working hard to a very high standard. They are impeccably polite and clear up all the mess afterwards. Nothing is too much trouble to get the desired result.
