I am a former Royal Engineer and have been running my landscaping business since 2004. I have been employed as a Lecturer in Hard Landscaping for a college within HMP service. My skills include block paved drives, patios, fencing, garden walls, turf laying, wall and floor tiling, and much more.

- 6.Fascias, Soffits & Guttering

I got started in the landscaping trade when I was made redundant from my position as an Asst Quarry Manager with Tarmac, and was able to call upon the skills that I had learnt during my 9 years in the Army.
I have been involved in the construction industry for almost 40 years in one way or the other, but specialising in landscaping since 2004.
I carry out anything from garden clearance through to a full garden makeover, but during the winter period am able to take on wall and floor tiling, painting and decorating, and general property maintainence. I have even completed shop refits for hairdressers salons and beauty salons, and am hoping to be refitting a shop shortly for use as a bar/club.
The majority of my experience is in the construction of patios and am able to lay these using concrete slabs or natural limestone or sandstone.
I am very skilled in the design and construction of block paved driveways, big or small. I also use a 60mm block as these are far superior to the standard 50mm block.
I am able to construct all types of fencing, panel, close boarded, post and rail, and wire.
I can re-turf a garden and have recently extended that into the laying of artificial turf.
I am able to take on projects involving bricklaying and also have experience of construction using natural stone, having recently completed the stonework on a bungalow extension.
The projects don't need to be large ones, it could just be a simple garden wall that is needed.
However, my skills enable me to take on and complete complete garden makeovers.
