About Dawson's

Over 30 years experience in the building trade. During this time I have covered everything to do with working outdoors as I am one of these people who likes to work outdoors and would hate to be in a factory or office all day.

This covers from working as a groundsman labourer on site, working with fencing and roofing companies, landscaping. In the last 10 years I have been self employed as a gardener and landscape during the summer. At the moment I have approximately 15 regular customers for gardening work. This used to be higher but unfortunately a lot of my customers have moved away or gone into nursing homes. For my regulars I will also repair roofs, clear rubbish, painting or anything else I am able to assist with (e.g. I used to drive one of my ladies to the hairdressers). In the winter I do roofing, guttering repairs. I also repoint to a very high standard.

It is a long time since I have advertised as all my work as been through word and mouth and this keeps me busy most of the time.


I am a time served tradesman learning brick laying on site as you did when I left school. I learnt the skill of roofing by going on jobs with my older brother and watching and learning on the job. I also learnt as I watched on fencing and landscaping jobs.
