Barbara and I would just like to say a very big thank you for doing such a wonderful job for us.

We now have a beautiful new river wall, which was a huge task in its own right, perfectly built and the attention to detail is exemplary.

Our thanks go also to your team, their friendly and helpfulness were greatly appreciated, you can be very proud of them.

We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anybody who requires such a job.


I would like to thank you and your wonderful team for the superb work done of the rear garden and on the front and drive.

We are both thrilled with the result which, I have to say, has been much admired by our neighbours and other "passers-by's".

We wish you continued success in the future with all good wished to you and your team and your families.

David Beckley

I should like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff most sincerely for the excellent job that has been done in rebuilding the pond and waterfall, it has been completed in the time you said it would and to the standard I was led to expect.

If at any future time you would like to recommend potential customers to view your work, with suitable notice I would be happy to oblige.

Both Susan and I would like to thank you for the excellent job you Martin and Andy have done, we are very pleased with the outcome, and as such we would have no hesitation in recommending you to any one else. Indeed if you want to use us as a referral please do so.

Tim Cary

Laura and myself are very pleased with the final result and will be happy to recommend you to anyone needing a decent patio.

Reg Belcher

Thank you for the work you have done filling-in my old pond and installing my granite bowl and bamboo spout. It looks really good and am very pleased.

I left the choosing of the specimen stones to you and that was a good decision as I do not think I could have chosen better. I like that the largest of them has lichen growing on it, making it look more aged than I thought.

I would have no hesitation in recommending you highly to anyone else.

Please convey our thanks to the boys for their hard work. I will probably contact you in the new year for another quote for some more work ie the pond in the meantime have a very merry christmas and a happy new year once again thank you very much.

Adam & Tracy

We are both really pleased with the pond and have been enjoying sitting over in that area, it is lovely to hear the sound of the waterfall! We have had lots of favourable comments about it, so your ears should have been burning!

I know mum is really looking forward to you starting work on her pond soon. We can't wait to see your handy-work with that one!

We are very pleased indeed with our new front garden, and we have had some good comments from our neighbours and others nearby; even someone knocked on our front door when passing by to say how good it looked.

Our thanks to you and especially to Adrian and Darren.


Many thanks for your endurance and patience, it was well worth while in the end, the pond is looking both great and full.

Geoffrey & Christine Rogers

I would just like to express my gratitude on the first class work you have made on our front driveway.

I was very pleased with the way that you kept the disruption to a minimum. Christine and I were most impressed with the attention to detail with the under base and sand bed. I would also like to say a thank you on the way that you kept to our time schedule on which we agreed. We are now much happier with the ease of access to our driveway.

I must just add that my only regret was that I did not have the work done sooner.

Many thanks to all concerned.

Eddie Ring

My wife and I would like to say how pleased we are with the driveway and in particular the attention to detail and the clean and tidy way the drive was left on completion of the job, many thanks.

The wife and I are very pleased with the excellent work carried out by your team, thanks.

Angela Pearce

Thank you so much for the excellent work carried out and for doing it so promptly for me. It was so nice seeing you again after all those years that have flown by all too quickly. The path looks super and has definitely improved the look of the front garden. Also thank you for doing the repointing at the back.

Susie Turner

Thanks so much for the pond and water feature. Both have been very much admired.

Thanks for putting in the slab of stone I asked for and cementing the step. The first plants went in today. More to follow.


I am very pleased with the work and appreciate your help in choosing the stone, and the courteous way in which the entire job was carried out. Thanks so much!

Ray Jones

We are delighted with the result and congratulate you on the careful workmanship and attention to detail. We have no hesitation in recommending you to others, indeed we already have!

Many thanks to all the team involved.

P Clarke

I am sorry you didn't have time to ring the doorbell yesterday as I would have liked to be able to tell you in person how very pleased I am with the work and how glad I am that i used you to do it.

P Battershall

My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the speedy manner in which you responded to our crisis caused by our severely leaking pond. A particular thank you must also go to your two members of staff Andy and Darren in the quiet, efficient way they went about their work. If at any time one of your potential clients wishes to have a recommendation of your work we would be happy to be contacted and for them to see our pond after the slabs and liner were relaid. The fish have settled back normally and appear to be totally unstressed during their temporary homing while the work was carried out.


Thanks for such a superb job. I was impressed with with your team and the high standard of work.

Many people could learn from your whole teams "can do" attitude.

Paul Oxbury

I was delighted with the finished patio and thank you for undertaking the job to such a high standard. In addition, may I express my thanks for the hard work put in by Darren and Martin, on site.

Richard Colman

We are delighted with the finished effect and noted the conscientious way in which you undertook the work and cleared away debris etc.

Sir Martin Lang

A long overdue letter to thank you for undertaking and completing the design and subsequent work to our courtyard, during December.

When my wife met you to discuss the possibility of renovating the yard, she was immediately struck by your enthusiasm, sense of commitment and strong sense of design, as was I on my return from abroad.

We really are extremely grateful to you personally, for your constant determination to ensure that everything was to the high standard which you had set – and to which you adhered.

We particularly commend Martin and Jake , who worked so tirelessly throughout the whole project. Martin was the ultimate craftsman and never appeared phased by the unexpected problems, although his patience must have been sorely tried at times. Both he and Jake reflected your sense of total commitment to their work and we thank them most sincerely for making their time here so easy for us as a household, ably assisted byAndy, Adrian and Darren, who also worked very hard during the times they were assigned to the job.

The exacting hard work, not to mention thoughtfulness and courtesy which they have all displayed each day was hugely impressive. As a team they were a pleasure to have on site and we really id miss them when they completed the job and departed!

Our sincere thanks to you, Ian, and also our congratulations. You gave prices to which you steadfastly adhered and deadlines which you met punctiliously.

We are absolutely delighted with all you have achieved, would have no hesitation in recommending your company to others and would love to have more work done elsewhere on the property, if we could only find somewhere to do it!


Very grateful for you and your staff for carrying out the work. I am very impressed by the result , done most professionally and most cheerfully by your staff. I am very pleased with the result.



May we thank you for an excellent job - we are thrilled with the result. You have displayed a commendable degree of care and expertise. We look forward to recommending you to others.



Many thanks again for doing a great job, so quickly and efficiently.
