Feedback for LD Environmental Solutions ltd

Very pleased. I wish I could add before and after photographs. Basically it was a very steep drive down the side of a bungalow and LD have created a level parking space at the top of the drive and a new walled path at the side of this out to the pavement. The work has been well done and an illustration of the service offered was the actual laying of the concrete after all footings, retaining walls etc. had been done. The concrete arrived in torrential rain and having spread it and waited for three hours until 7 p.m. the rain did not look like easing. The workmen covered it with tarpaulin sheets and left, as I thought until the following day. They actually returned at midnight and worked through until 3:45 in the morning ensuring the concrete was correctly laid. When the whole job was finished I noticed a couple of things that I thought would improve the finish and informed Lee by text message. Workmen arrived that same afternoon and completed these small snags. Excellent.
