Latest reviews

  • Two different types of fencing to match existing

    I am very impressed with the work carried out, the team arrived as planned to remove all the hedges and bushes prior to the fencing being installed and left the area clean and tidy. The fencing team arrived as agreed and installed the new fences the same day, the standard of the workmanship is first class there were no problems whatsoever with the installation. Everything was done as per the agreed quotation, I would not hesitate to recommend this Gavin's company to others, an excellent job done which is much appreciated.

  • New Yorkstone patio to rear yard area in Sandwich

    Gavin completed a York stone paved courtyard with perimeter granite set border to an exceptional competent and professional manner. The three man team were forthcoming with positive views and ideas which assisted the project to be as good as it could be. We are exceptionally pleased with the outcome. His price was competitive but more importantly his 'can do' attitude gave us the confidence that he was the best person to carry out this work. We would have no concerns about recommending him and his team for work of this nature.
