  • Repair and replace stone garden steps and wall

    10Verified Review

    Martin has done a top-class job on repairing two damaged garden walls, replacing old cement pointing with lime mortar. He was sensitive about this work as it is a Grade 2 listed building. The work was done speedily but also carefully. Martin also measured and ordered high-quality Ham stone to then do a fantastic job of renewing a large flight of garden steps. The result is outstanding. He's calm, civil and considerate to work with. We will definitely be using his services again.

    Garden boarder very overgrown. Martin did an amazing job digging up all the weeds and laying down both a stone border and extended our patio. Really quick to communicate, very tidy - would highly recommend.

  • Patio for garden room

    10Verified Review

    Martin was from the very start courteous, timely and helpful. When we described what we wanted to do he made suggestions with other options, and then came back with a quote promptly with a realistic timeline as to when he could start the work. He arrived on site when he said he would, always tidied up, kept us updated on progress and changes, and even in rain and gale force winds was on site! We are thrilled with the patio, and felt we got excellent workmanship at a value for money price.

    Martin is a very pleasant chap. Excellent communication from beginning to end of job. We were kept informed at all stages of the work. Workmanship is first class. Decking is brilliant on our static holiday home at Freshwater Beach Holiday Park. Come and see for yourselves to B13. We are delighted and would highly recommend him.

Company info

Hi my name's Martin Holmes and have been running my business since October 2016.
Although I had been subcontracting to different companies for year's previous to this.
I've been building 12 year's now and love my job. 
Main reason of starting my business is that I pride myself on customer satisfaction. 
I have high standards on any work that I do and believe in the saying that if I wouldn't be happy with the work then I wouldn't expect any customer to be either. 
I believe in having very good contact with any of my customer's. 
For an example one of my previous customers worked away in London so I kept them up to date by emailing picture's throughout the job. 
I specialise in stonework which I love doing.
Also undertake any building work as well as hard landscaping.
Hope to hear from you soon with a free quotation.
Kind regards Mr Holmes
