Two years ago I used all my savings and extended my mortgage to pay for a garden wall and my back garden revamped. Only to realise later that they where a bunch of cowboys. All the pillars on the walls are different sizes and they didn't finish them off properly. The turf in the back garden was laid on top of gravel and floods at the drop of a hat and is all patchy. The block paving is all uneven and braking away. The raised borders they built on a bed of mortar instead of concrete, so now they are starting to crack apart. When I asked them why they were doing it that way, they said that was the way it was done now. So now my garden looks worse now than it did before and I'm £10,000 out of pocket and can't afford to have it repaired.
