What our Customers Say

Large patio area, fully turfed and a rockery

Gareth and his dad were great from day one, very clean and tidy. Nothing was too much trouble. Garden looks fantastic – we have received lots of compliments. Wouldn’t hesitate to use them again – highly recommended!

Full landscape

Absolutely spot on. Excellent, punctual, clean and tidy, couldn’t rate them high enough.

Removal of lawn, stone patio laid, stone retaining walls built.

Lovely team, worked hard, very helpful and friendly. Delighted with the finished job.
