Front Garden remodel: The complete workmen and owner were friendly, neat and polite. They worked very hard for three days to achieve excellent results. The workers made sure they were precise and worked out the best ways of making the garden look its best. The fence with two gates was neatly made from scratch and cemented in place. Our tree was carefully paved around and the garden was given a decorative attractive edge. We were given options regarding the design and lay of the bricks. They also built us a matching little step. Thrilled with the neat results. Will recommend and use again.
Dave and his team spent a busy 8 days removing an old decking area and a concrete path then replacing them with a paved patio and path and putting in new turf and edging the flower beds. The work was done to a very good standard and we are very pleased with it.
I found the team of guys very good, very polite and very hard working. They delivered on everything that was promised. They dug up the old crazy paving and installed a real tidy bit of block paving. They were super quick and tidied up everything afterwards. Really impressed and would thoroughly recommend to anyone wishing to have a quality driveway. Fantastic service, fantastic product.
