extension side and rear , 2 storey Extensions
late feedback but the reason as fellow
the project completed but
1. 1 year delay
2. more than 5 different plumbers electricians
3. winter without heating
4. leak everywhere to the fact living room ceiling dropdown and took weeks to repair
5. so many other problems and no follow up from GT
we always trusted Gavin as he come across as decent guy and we did feel he is good guy but bad luck with subcontractors as he always told us. we trust him so much and believed his excuses that we actually gave him our second project which is much bigger than first . and here we are .. again took advance payment and over 4 months late on project and the completion period was 4 months and not even turn up for over 5 weeks and finally we get email from GT to say they will not be working or finish the project but they keeping the money. i guess we just been fooled by GT and we been led to think that GT was victim of subcontractors rather them self causing the problems. the second project prove that the problem not subcontractors but GT them self. reasons for late feedback. after second project we realized that GT not a victim of their choice of bad subcontracts but we are the victim and been fooled twice by GT.

New flat roof Roofing (Flat)
Gavin and Mike and team completed my flat roof the words that's come to mind are professional's. The prices are competitive and not over exaggerated. A company that belives in quality and has good ethical behaviour very rare in this trade. I had other issues such as plumbing and gas a task they undertook to help get the job done. The team are polite and tidy all the time. Much more can be said not enough words but I will be asking the lads to come back for more work landscaping and wall knock through I would not trust this job with anybody else's after meeting these lads.
Thanks Gt landscaping team

New Driveway Driveways (Paved & Loose Surface)
Absolutely no complaints. Gav and his lads replaced my driveway and have done an excellent job under what were at times challenging conditions. There were a few gotchas that cropped up and I threw in a couple of extra challenges as I discovered unrelated issues. Gav took everything in his stride and completed all the work for me to a good standard and in a timely manner.
Gav advertises himself as somebody who likes to work with the customer. Some builders like to tell you what they thin kyou need; Gav listens to what you say and discusses options then lets you decide. I like to be guided but ultimately like to make the final decision with facts considered. Gav is comfortable with this, some contractors aren't.
The most important point to note is the price of the job. From five quotes Gav was the cheapest (by far in a couple of cases) and initially this was something that raised concerns (why is he so much cheaper?). But once I had spoken with Gav I had a warm feeling and so went with it and was not disappointed.
I would definitely recommend and will actually call Gav back to quote when I decide to extend the house to the rear.

Garden landscape need ASAP Landscaping
Absolutely delighted with our new garden! Gavin provided a competitive quote and did a fantastic job to a really high standard. The job was not easy, but Gavin and his team have managed to get the work started and completed as our request. Proper drainage, nice patio area and stone circle, lovely little stone path...looks great!
Gavin and his dad are hard working, skilled, and conscientious. They even worked through the bad weather to get the job done. On completion all rubbish was removed and everything left clean and tidy.
I would highly recommend Gavin and would like to hire him again for future jobs.

Gavin and his team built an outside patio out of recycled bricks for me, and built steps going down to the patio. The job was tricky, because the bricks weren't all evenly sized, but the end result looks great. Gavin was very polite and pleasant to deal with. I am glad I got him to do the job. The price was very competitive and the quality of the work high. I would use him again.

Front driveway & garden & back garden re-do Landscaping
Gavin runs a family business with his brother and dad, the whole team is friendly and knowledgeable. We initially got quotes from different people and Gavin’s was the most competitive, he also offered a lot of advice during the initial planning stage which made our 'ideal garden' ideas we came up with look like our 2 year old daughter had drawn them.
The quality of work by Gavin and his team is excellent, he has transformed the front and side of our corner plot from something that resembled a building site to an impeccably manicured driveway, 2 lawns, a segregated rear garden and he also widened our driveway entrance. Since he completed the work we've had 6 people actually stop outside the house and comment how good the garden and drive looks, with plenty of other people double taking when they walk past - that alone speaks volumes about the work.
We're already planning to use Gavin for more work, including an extension and extended porch.
Excellent quality of work, good advice and a great price - We would happily recommend him to anyone.

Gavin did an excellent job laying our new patio and repairing gutters and replacing slipped slates. He was very friendly, tidy and provided helpful advice. We plan to employ him again in the future.
homeowner - 31st Mar, 2013 Positive feedback
Gav and his Dad did a big job for us including drainage, new turf, new drains, indian stone patio and new path. It was an excellent job done to a very high standard. He stood out a mile because he always advised us on what would be best for us rather than what was easiest or the biggest money maker for him. Would recommend to him friends, family, anybody. His quotes beat everyone elses, but even if they didnt next time we would still use him! Really cant say enough about him. And he deserves a medal for putting up with our 2 nosey dogs that love to put footprints in wet cement! Thanks Gav!

We had two chimney's which were clearly in need of repair and leaks from the roof joins on to the inside of chimney breasts in the house. Gavin gave considered, sensible and practical advice in respect of the options to deal with these and a quote which compared well to other contractors. In the end, the chimneys were completely rebuilt and other problems dealt with along the way all with good grace! I am very pleased with the outcome and would use Gavin again.

Gavin responded quickly with a fair quote. The team arrived bright and early and were really pleasant. The garden looks really nice and the materials used were of very good quality. At one point it was pouring down but they continued on in the rain! Gavin also gave some good advice about other works we proposed to have done which were unrelated to this job, he was more than happy to help. Would recommend to those looking for landscaping work.

Rear garden design, landscaping, major overhaul Landscaping
Gavin did an amazing job on our back garden, He has transformed it from the terrible unusable state it was in to a beautiful garden that is a pleasure to look at and use. Thanks to the hard graft put into the garden we now have a wonderful kitchen garden on the go.
The decking was expertly fit and the Indian sandstone path looks amazing and the fencing and low brick wall were professionally built. Gavin has really gone beyond what I expected to achieve with our garden. I can't recommend him highly enough.
Hardworking, honest and takes pride in his work. Both Gavin and his father gave us some expert advice on both general up keep and various plants and trees suitable for our garden.
I made the best choice selecting GT Landscapes to come in and do this work. I now have the number firmly in my phone and will not hesitate to have him back to other work for us.
If GT Landscapes show an interest in any of the jobs you need doing then my advice would to be to grab him and forget the rest.

Gavin's work is of a very high standard and extremely high quality. He laid our new patio, set up a water feature and replaced some fence panels. He made very helpful suggestions about the types of materials to use and took his time to ensure that the finished work was perfect. He is friendly, reliable, professional, hardworking and committed to doing the best job possible. He is extremely good value for money. We have asked him to complete some further work for us.

Blue slate slabs to be laid. 15m square. Landscaping
Gavin provided a very reasonable quote for the work we wanted doing. After discussing the job with him, he demonstrated sound knowledge in what he was doing and we were confident in his skills and experience once he started. We asked Gavin to lay slate paving to areas in our front and rear gardens. The job involved lots of cuts and complicated calculations to achieve a random pattern. It looks STUNNING. It drains to where it should, and the attention to detail is very high. The time he spent on the job was spot on and it was not rushed and came out to a high standard. Never used 'Mybuilder' before, nor met Gavin, but we are happy to use both again. Well pleased. Mr & Mrs H

I found Gavin to be a very pleasant and helpful person. Even though it did take some time for get Gavin around to do the work because of previous jobs, when he did start the work I couldnt fault him. What we wanted was not the conventional gates (too costly) so he managed to do some "make shift" ones and I couldnt be happier considering they are temporary gates. I have already had another quote from Gavin to do some more work for us.
