    Very polite young man arrived. Got on with the job and did exactly what was required. Andrew had been to review the job the week before and emailed me a quote as promised. Although I wasn’t expecting anyone to come yesterday (it was a day earlier than expected ) it was a pleasant surprise. Good all round service and would employ again.

  • Repair patio, some loose, some missing, Old Catton

    Check google reviews!

    I hired Conkers to carry out works to my property to sort a few issues with my patio. It was uneven and some of the pavers had started to rock due to the sand base layer having washed away over time, causing pointing to crack.

    After 3 no-shows, I finally received confirmation of an exact start time (not just day) for whilst I was meant to be on holiday. Having left in the early hours to ensure I was back in time, the team arrived several hours late.

    In defense of the staff, they worked solidly and carried out day 1 to an acceptable standard but due to arriving late, they had to continue the following day. This day, they arrived late and work was rushed. After Andrew had stated that the issue with the patio was caused by it being entirely on sand rather than a concrete mix, the blocks that were laid by his guys were put on mud, nothing else and no infill. Within 2 weeks, weeds were growing through and it appears that the mix used for the patio was not carried out correctly as cracks have already started plus moss that was already there was pointed round rather than being cleaned out!

    It should have been power hosed as stated by Andrew but never happened.

    My drain was also totally blocked by the material. I have had to pay for someone to come remove the drain, lay new and flush, repaint items that weren't moved/covered and someone to chisel & power hose the petrol stains and excess

    1 more no show and no response to calls or emails since.

    Conkers's reply:

    We certainly didn’t start when originally planned as we had been made to isolate by COVID ap. you were fully informed. We didn’t give you, and haven’t given anyone ever, an exact start time, how can I predict traffic etc? that’s nonsense. We did however, collect materials for your site first thing and headed to you. The work was carried out EXACTLY as agreed with you ie flow point was poured onto your existing patio to re-point it. The few block paving blocks we inserted were bedded on sand as block paving should be, pointed with kiln dried sand. Your whole patio was power washed twice, your drain was covered over and not blocked and the residue of the material used was washed off (some of your slabs have concrete on them from activities other than ours). I must also ask about the petrol stains? We didn’t have any petrol equipment on your site at any time only electric.
    We never ask for any deposits from our customers and only ask for payment in full after SATISFACTORY completion. You paid your £676.00 invoice and gave my chaps a generous tip.

  • New gate back gate

  • Gardener/ property maintenance

  • Repair of long fence

    STAY WELL AWAY. These guys are cowboys. I needed a long fence replaced. They did a shoddy but expensive job to start with and when I asked them to fix/ repair when the fence started to lean, first they agreed to do it when they saw how bad the fence was, then they gave me a string of broken promises, ignored my calls, were rude, aggressive, lied, gave me endless excuses and failed to apologise for endless days of no-shows in which I had taken days off work in order to be in for them to do the repairs. This went on for a five month period. Even the receptionist/ telephonist is a family member and joined in the lying/ excuses too. I've had building work of many kinds done for thirty years, several full house renovations, and understand that tradespeople run into trouble and can't always deliver on their promises, but this was one of the most unpleasant experiences I have ever had - incompetence and dishonesty at every level and at the highest levels.

    Conkers's reply:

    We did erect a fence several years ago that 3 of the circa 28 panels have slightly dislodged in the incredible wind we gave had, not my warranty. I agreed to remedy, for free as a goodwill gesture and booked the work in (she wont leave a gate open) first time my son caught COVID so we locked down, twice rained off in storms,3rd time operative caught covid, all pinged and yesterday my son in law could not attend as his wife, my daughter was rushed into hospital for an emergency caesarean. We have not lied, not been rude and deliver an excellent quality of workmanship, yesterday this woman, who new of the seriousness of our girls situation, berated, belittled and verbally abused my wife to tears.

    Madam the world has been gripped by a pandemic with many people having to isolate at a moments notice, the weather has been atrocious rendering it unfit to work outside, yet you insist on an appointment at a given date and time for us to carry out this freebie favour. Your inflexibility has caused the delay, not us!

    Yet I am still prepared to do this act of goodwill for you because I have said we will. I certainly want my daughter home first and I think an apology to my wife would be the correct thing to do.

  • Mossy and weedy lawn needs replacing

  • Hedge trimming in front garden

    Tidied up well and hedge looked good. I paid over £100. Have had the same job done for £30, through this site. Young man was excellent. Certainly won't recommend Conkers

    Conkers's reply:

    Conkers are a large professional company. We have full employee and public liability insurance. Our vehicles are fully insured for commercial use and we hold a license for removing waste (a legal requirement which if absent can lead to both contractor and customer being fined). ALL of our works are carried out after an initial inspection and a full legally bound quotation. Our operatives, who are all paid a very good wage, then attend and carry out the works. They then clear up and remove the waste that we then dispose of at a licensed, commercial recycling centre, for which we pay for by weight deposited.

    It’s impossible to cut a hedge for less than £100.00, £100.00 that was quoted and the price accepted by Sally. She was very happy and paid our bill.

    The tradesman that cut the hedge is new to My Builder, he probably did it at a loss to generate much needed feedback or……….

  • Replace decking with paving

  • Replace patio

  • Paving Rockland St Mary

  • Remove decking. Install patio and steps.

    Andrew came round, discussed with me what I wanted, giving advice where needed. The quote I received was very competitive and they were able to start within a few weeks.

  • Small patio area.

    I received a great service from Conkers. Andrew responded to my ad the day after I posted it, came and quoted the same week, once I confirmed the job they had it done within two weeks. The team Andrew sent were friendly and professional and did a great job especially as the access to my garden isn’t easy so they had to come through my neighbours which they sorted and was hassle free. Would definitely recommend.

  • Artificial grass

    Excellent job done by excellent workmen .

  • Re felt shed roof

    Despite several reminders and promises to complete the job it has not yet been done so some 2 months later. I was not happy with the quality of some of the materials used and advised Conkers straight away. His employees used a cheap and nasty piece of wood to complete the work - to me it has been spoilt because of this. Not a way to keep customers

    Conkers's reply:

    The timber used was supplied, exactly for the purpose, by the sheds original manufacturer, thaxters. Not sure what else we could have done.

  • New gate

    Derek Cooper

  • New Base for Shed

  • Supply and lay decking.

    Excellent work and service. Would use them again.

  • Replacement Fence required

  • New garden design and layout.

  • 3x3 deck

    All good. Thank you.

  • Decking Repair - before it goes rotten

    From the time I met Andrew, to the time the job was complete, they have been very professional, I was extremely concerned because I have a large decked area at our Caravan & it had started to rot & was a little unsecure, Conkers have repaired it & it is more solid then ever, cosmetic repairs were also carried out & they have done a great job, I am really pleased..

  • New patio area

  • Lawn mowing regularly

  • Garden design

  • Panel fence for one side of garden.

    A very good job well done. The lads had problems as my home is on a sloping hill but they knuckled down and got on with it, they were brilliant. I would recommend Conkers to anyone without hesitation. Thanks for a great job.👍👍👍

  • Long shared driveway

    There were problems with the drive way and Mr Thompson was difficult during the discussion to rectify these problems. At one point he was rude to neighbours in an email. Ultimately it was necessary to remove his work and it was not possible to negotiate even a partial refund of his fee. I would not recommend this tradesman.

    Conkers's reply:

    This is not my customer but is a neighbour of the shared drive we concreted. This is however, the wife of the husband and wife team, that removed our barriers and drove up it whilst still wet. They skidded in the wet concrete destroying over a third of the work and then tried to blame me. Would anyone then proceed to rectify for free or offer a partial or full refund? I certainly wasn’t rude either but I was firm, I wont be bullied by this neighbour or anyone else.

  • New lawn

    Good job as with all jobs a few hiccups along the way but Andrew and his team overcame these and completed and we are delighted with the work.

  • Levelling the grass

    I can’t express how happy I am with the result of my garden. Absolutely perfect to what I asked For. Very professional and friendly. Everything was done to perfection by Harry as he is a perfectionist. Can definitely recommend Conkers. Very happy.

  • Path & Patio

    Very pleased with the work and cost😊

  • New front garden design

    Andrew was extremely quick in responding to my request. Design was agreed & work booked in for the following week. Kyle & Mark took on the project they were very friendly & extremely hard working. My front garden has been transformed! I could not be happier with the result. Thank you so much Andrew, kyle & Mark. I would not hesitate to recommend Conkers.

  • Rear garden lawn - large new turf needed

  • Paving/concrete front garden

    Good job done very pleased

  • Garden edging

    I was pleased with the sleeper edging, but not to pleased with the clearing of the boarders after lots of old stones,concrete and bits of sticks etc left in soil. The lads could have been more tidy and cleared up better instead of leaving rubbish in boarder soil.

  • Replace & Extend Patio

  • Drive & garden

    Very tidy. Discussed alternatives which worked very well. Not the cheapest but I am very happy with the result. Came when agreed. Nice people

  • Replacing two sleepers in raised section of garden.

    This was an excellent experience all round- impressive from start to finish.
    Our initial posting was responded immediately and within just over a week, Andrew had been to visit, quoted for the job and then arranged for the work to be done today. We are extremely pleased with the finished job and would have no hesitation in contacting Conkers again and warmly recommend the company with whom it was a great pleasure to deal. A 5 star rating!

  • New patio & deck

    Great work! My garden looks fabulous. Thanks to Harry and his work partners. Really friendly team! Always give valuable suggestions and try to do it the best they can.

  • New driveway

  • Garden clear up / refresh

    Really impressed with the level of service. Our lawn needed a complete overhaul after several years of negligence and being left to overgrow. Andrew and his team were able to completely cut everything back, lay new lawn and install a new fence, as well as other little jobs and all within 2 and a half days and at a reasonable price! Would definitely recommend again.

  • Paving slabs to be laid and moving original sleepers

  • Terrace landscaping of rear garden and returfing

    Fantastic job by Conkers team. Turned up on time. Completed the job in the stated time. Very friendly team who did a brilliant job in very trying conditions. Ground rock hard and temperatures of +30deg. Constructed terracing from sleepers with centre steps. End result is brilliant and admired by everyone that has seen it. Can’t wait to get it all planted up now. Andrew stuck to his quoted price even though I suspect it took more materials than he originally estimated. Great job, many thanks Andrew. Highly recommended.

  • Fire damaged fence panels need replacing

    All work required was done to a professional standard. The guys were both courteous friendly. Would use again.

  • Dog proof mesh fencing g

    High price for poor quality work. I.e. gate hinges only one screw, gate has dropped and bolt does not work.

    Conkers's reply:

    The missed screws in the hinges, clearly an oversize, is certainly not acceptable and will have caused the gate to sag. I will despatch one of the boys to put it right immediately. We have only been alerted of this minor problem by receiving this feedback. A simple phone call would have remedied the problem within the hour.
    Andrew

  • One new featheredge panel and gate needed

    Very pleased with new gate and fence, there were some measurement issues, however these were quickly rectified (with a trip back to the workshop) at no extra cost to us. And the whole job was completed within a few hours.

  • New patio & landscaping of existing garden

    Andrew/Conkers came highly recommended to me by a friend who had a job completed by one of the teams. Andrew was pleasant to deal with at first, quick to come and quote for my job and to put a date for it to be started. The young workers that he employs were friendly and worked hard in one of the hottest weeks of the year. Sadly I cannot leave positive feedback as I have been let down since the job was completed and his team left. Andrew was quick to invoice and request payment as soon as his team left but not quick to rectify an issue with the pointing of my existing patio (caused because jointing compound was laid over sand/sawdust and dirt so didn't set and just crumbled). Lighting that was going to be fitted after the main work has not been completed. After chasing both after 6 weeks and no sign of Andrew or his team returning to complete either I gave up and cancelled the work. No acknowledgement or apology. Whilst I'm satisfied with most of the work the aftercare has let it down. I'm left with an impression that this company is only interested in getting the job, getting it done as quick as possible and moving on.

    Conkers's reply:

    As stated in our email to this client we cannot get the materials necessary due to supply chain problems caused by Covid. As soon as we are in receipt we will, of course, attend.

    Regards

    Andrew

  • Extend and replace lawn with Gravel Driveway 24sq mtrs

    Excellent job by Conkers on extending our gravel driveway 👍 straightforward, honest, family run local business in North Norfolk.

    Many thanks to Andrew and the boys for transforming my garden.
    Would recommend there work.

  • Replace/repair fence

    Andrew’s team was tasked with repairing/replacing a section of 20 year old fencing that had suffered from wind damage, they effected a superb repair in very quick time and at minimal cost, utilising far more of the original wood than had been foreseen, leaving the fence not only in a first class condition, but also cosmetically in keeping with the rest of the fence. I have absolutely no reservations about recommending Conkers, they pride themselves on doing a first rate job for a realistic price, attributes that are difficult to find nowadays!

  • Slabbed area for gazebo

    Conkers is an impressively professional firm. Andrew was really easy to deal with and was able to accommodate my exact needs quickly and to a very high standard. The work was carried out tidily and with minimum disruption. The work carried out was to lay a slabbed area and erect a Dunster House gazebo which I had already ordered. The installers were polite and friendly. We would look to Conkers to quote for any future 'projects' and we would wholeheartedly recommend them to others. Thank you!

    What a super job Conkers have done for us. They are swift, professional and reliable. We felt involved throughout and were listened to. Everyone who came was polite, respectful and efficient.
    We would certainly recommend Conkers - thank you Andrew and team

  • Garden work

    We had a lot of overgrown gorse and shrubs on a steep bank.. Andrews team cleared it and laid turf over the top... Excellent service and a reasonable price..
    Really good job...

  • Appleyard Garden

    Stayed I touch, kept me informed. All good

  • Brickweave front patio for terraced house

  • Landscaping garden

    Andrew is going to make me out to be an awkward customer, but all I wanted was for my job to be done how I wanted it and how it should have been done. Messed me about for nearly 3 weeks to have some additional work and snagging done only to be told they wouldn'tcome back any more because they didnt like it because I told them I wanted my sleepers to be put on concrete foundation and not just sat on soil and also no supports in the ground behind the sleepers to stop them leaning over with the weight against them. I had been told by others this is how it should be done. Had caused the firm I had in to lay the slabs a lot of problems as they then told me the sleepers had a 3cm hump in the middle and not done to the correct height of the fall, my only wish is I had of got them in to do the lot for me as they listened to what I wanted and nothing was too much trouble for them. As Im the customer here this is how it should be and not be frightened to say anything incase it upset them. Im the one who has to live with it and Im sure if there is any problems further down the line because it wasn't done correctly Andrew is going to come back and rectify it all. Only thing Andrew seems interested in is coming getting the cash straight away and telling you he is going to comeback to do other work when I think they had no intention of doing all along which I realised after talking to him on the phone a few weeks later, just messed me about and probably good job they didnt come back!

    Conkers's reply:

    I am not going to make you out to be an awkward customer, you are much different. My boys (including my son) refused to do the additional work you asked us to do (odd you asked us for more if we are so bad!). They found you “creepy” and didn’t like the way you looked at them. You told me that you are a painter and decorator which i have found out to be untrue as your comments on here are also fabricated.

  • Base for shed

  • Revamp of front for easy maintenance

    Very good job done in short time

  • 5 Garden Planters Made Out of decking

    After several false starts, a nice couple of lads turned up to do the work. All through the morning they were called by Andrew almost every hour to check their progress on this job which they weren't happy about. Although they didn't quite make the planters to the spec I agreed with Andrew, i initially thought what they had done would be just "ok" so i paid. But a week later, the missing corner battens meant that the planters just fell apart at the slightest push. Before leaving this feedback, i contacted Andrew to try and resolve this issue as the missing corner battens were all that was required (1hr work?). But his immediate response was aggressive, blaming me for the poor finished product and claiming that his guys did nothing wrong - at this point I hadn't yet managed to tell him what the issue was because he didn't want to know. Clearly from the look of the many positive reviews he has, this occasion may have been a one off but even so, if he'd have engaged with me when i contacted him rather than immediately get defensive and aggressive, i am sure we could have reached an amicable solution. He made a mountain out of a molehill in this case. I wont be using his services again.

  • Lift existing lawn ,relevel and turf

  • Laying slabs in garden

    Was able to complete the work in good time. A reasonable job was done.

    Conkers's reply:

    This customer has decided to show neutral feed back, however......she wanted her own materials laying in the cheapest possible way, she went against our advice and had them directly onto sand not a wet mortar mix, i sent one operative in a van to carry out the works and he did a perfectly acceptable job. with his pay, diesel and sand etc I actually lost money. I realised this would be the case before we started but i sometimes try to help some people that otherwise cant afford to have works done.....appreciative? Obviously not. Lesson learnt!

  • New patio and fencing

  • 5m by 7m level softwood deck

    Nice sound job, completed quickly and professionally.

  • Mend and re erect decking on new site

    Professional and most pleasant. This man can literally make a silk purse out of a sows ear ! Considering what the cowboy builders I had paid to do the job before they scarpered,(decking for a static caravan which they sawed into 4 pieces and left in the mud over winter) he saved most of it and built a smart, sturdy decking for us. I cannot recommend him highly enough, he and his team of men are excellent.

  • Present garden slabs cleared and new lawn.

    The transformation to our garden is amazing. An excellent job done by all concerned. Team were very happy and obliging and worked in all weathers to get it done. Would Highly recommend any time.

    Would undoubtedly use again and recommend to others.

  • New patio

    By using Conkers a friendly family run business, we got our bespoke patio for a decent price completed by a really friendly team of Landscapers. Conkers are very competitively priced as we were quoted a lot more money by other companies for the same stone and layout. If you want a decent job for a decent price then give Andrew at Conkers a call to get a friendly free no obligation quote.

  • New fence and shed. Remove 3 small trees.

I would not hesitate to recommend him. He is friendly and a really nice bloke. His staff were all great too and they worked really well as a team. Thanks for doing a great job Andrew.

  • Just bought house and garden needs a full tidy up

    We were extremely impressed with the tidy up commissioned. The team worked hard and long even through very wet weather. The job was conducted efficiently, quickly and was well supervised. It was a 5 star service and I would highly recommend Conkers as no job is unwelcome and as newcomers to the area we were well looked after and we intend to commission them for a maintenance contract in the future.

  • Fence Post concreting

    Undertook job at very short notice. Good job done at a reasonable price. Thank you very much.

  • Dig up my lawn and shingle it!

    I was very pleased with the work Andrew and the Conkers team did. It turned out to be a much bigger job than just digging up my lawn and shingling because the railway sleepers that held up the 2 tiers in my garden were rotten and collapsing. This was a big job and Andrew worked with me to design a perfect solution and sourced the perfect materials. It wasn't easy as we had to work it out as we went along, but when things were not quite as I expected we managed to resolve the issues with solutions I was very happy with even when it meant the team had to redo some aspects. The team are great and the lads work hard and are very polite and helpful. I would not hestitate to recommend Conkers.
    Just make sure you know what you want to achieve and have a clear picture in mind and it will be done!

  • Hard graft landscaper required

    Excellent workmanship. Very pleased. Would highly recommend.

  • To lay a concrete case pathway and garden clearance

    well was not happy with it second day after they have finish 3 slabs came loose when I turn them over 2 small blogs of cement that would never hold and I ask for 4 ins of concrete deep for base of my shed and I got 3 and in places 2 half thick when they board out before you pore the concrete in you should have the pegs outside off the boards not INSIDE IT! so when I remove the boards yes you guess it holes around the edges. guy with 25 years experience I will never know and the crazy driveway that's another story fill it with concrete instead of the bricks

    Conkers's reply:

    In all trades we can, and sometimes do, at the end of a project, have a snagging list. We then, as all good tradesman do, rectify the problems. Firstly. This customer never mentioned any snagging so we had no opportunity to rectify. Secondly. They left this terrrible feedback many months after completion. Why?

    To answer his feedback.

    When laying concrete bases we always ask if the shuttering is to remain (we use pressure treated timber so it can and it looks nicer with the framing around it) If it is to remain we peg on the inside. This customers wife asked for it to remain. All of our framing is 4’’ wide so the thickness of the concrete and hardcore is that thick. How can he suggest it isn’t without cutting it in half? The two slabs he mentions are two spare ones we had left over after laying his path. We offered them to his wife and she asked us to PLACE them down near the path. My boys sat them on the small amount of cement they had left. Lastly why did they then ask us to quote for fencing if they were so disappointed in our quality?

    OUR ONLY NEGATIVE FEEDBACK EVER!

  • Small decking area and fence panel

    Great job, lots of helpful advice too. Will use Conkers again most definitely.

  • Terraced house front and back garden renovation

  • Fence panels

    Andrew was responsive and easy to deal with. The job was done quickly and effectively which made life easier for both me and the next-door neighbour. I would recommend Conkers.

  • Replacement Fence

    Did a great job despite the awful weather. Thank you.

  • Lay a patio in back garden

    Job started off well on 15/01; Andrew listened and was easy to get along with. However, the agreed requirements were ignored (I requested cut slabs to be against the wall near the back door and for the new patio to cover the entire existing base, etc). After raising my concerns as soon as the issues were identified, I agreed to compromise by leaving the slabs that had already been laid in place, to minimise any rework and for Andrew's team to remove the protruding base and lay some turf to fill the gap between the existing lawn and new patio.
    I received some pictures on 22/01 with a note confirming "All Done". As Andrew had requested payment upon completion and the pictures looked fine, I paid in full online, even though I was working away so could not immediately inspect the patio in person. I know, my mistake for being too trusting.
    When I reviewed the work in person on 28/01, I found out that the additional turf had simply been laid on top of the concrete base which had not been removed as agreed but was hidden under a layer of sand. Also, the gaps between the slabs had not been filled - I had been promised that they would be filled with kiln-dried sand.
    I contacted Andrew immediately and he promised to finish the job when we had a dry day. However 8 weeks later and after numerous chasers, he has failed to complete the job as agreed and has stopped replying to my texts and voicemails, despite having been paid in full.

    Conkers's reply:

    Absolutely untrue. Turf on concrete? There want any concrete as the old patio we removed was laid on sand. As o explained to this woman you can’t brush kiln dried sand onto a wet surface. Typical of the type of customer that gets quoted for a and then attempts to get ab and c for free.

  • Land Clearance, Landscaping, & Driveway Work

    Reasonably priced. Professional service. Quick turnaround.

    Very minor issue with replacement drain cover (cement mix was too weak and crumbled to dust after a week or so) but overall work was of expected quality.

Great job highly recommend The Conkers team and will certainly use again on my future projects. Thank you again.

  • groundwork on an allotment

    We had to move to a flat and missed our lovely garden so took over an allotment but faced with the blank canvas of weeds and not much money and only a small car for transport, didn't know where to start so we contacted Andrew through My Builder and he gave us lots of advice about cost effective options. He transformed our patch of weeds into a manageable space with patio, gravel paths, boarded sections for planting and a small grassed area. We can now see how to move forward and enjoy the planting without all the initial labour that would have taken us months. It did take a little longer than expected and first promised, but I think Andrew had to fit us in at a busy time. A good result in the end.

  • Garden renovation

  • Turfing 70m2

    Andrew and the team put in extremely hard work over a couple of days to ensure the bad weather didn't Distrupt completion date. Did a sterling job and come in as quoted. Really honest pricing, would hire the team again. Definitely recommend to a friend .

  • Landscaping small sloped garden

    Really happy with the finished product, Conkers dug out a sloped garden, and re-layed a larger patio, created a raised grass area and built steps up to the garden gate.

  • Dig out and gravel drive.

    After the initial very positive visit and chat with Andrew he provided a fair and fast quote for our driveway plans.
