  • New 25mm water supply pipe to granny annex

    Matt and team completed ground works for our garage to granny annex conversion in Derby . Works included a new water main and sewer connections / pipe work and bricking up the old garage door and laying a new concrete floor with damp proof membrane . All was completed to a high standard and Matt went above and beyond from sourcing new bricks to exactly match the old to fixing unexpected problems with no extra Labour charge . Very impressed with the team’s knowledge and expertise. He worked very well with the building inspector who he happened to know from previous work. The job was done in a reasonable time and bang on budget with no hidden or extra costs . I highly recommend stable ground works and we are already planning to get them back next year to do our driveway. - big thanks to Matt and team

    Matthew Walton and the Stable Groundworks team did an excellent job of removing an area of thick/troublesome concrete in our garden.

Would definitely recommend/use again.

  • Groundworks for Large House Extension

  • Driveway widening wall rebuild earth removed.

    Matt and his team have recently completed widening our driveway for us. It was a big job to undertake but Matt knows what he is doing and has years of experience in ground works. His quote for the work was detailed and he explained everything to us about how best to get this difficult job done. We had had quite a few previous quotes from other people but didn’t feel confident that they could do it. The driveway was widened and our drystone wall taken down, over 130 tonnes of rubble and soil were removed from site. Our drystone wall was re sited and supplemented and hardcore was laid on the driveway. Matt and his team work really hard and with care and make sure you are happy with the work as the job progresses. I can highly recommend Matt and his team and will be using him again.

  • Driveway drainage/trench

    Matt came out to look at the job I posted and he quickly identified the problem and gave me 2 options as to what I could have done.
    Once work commenced he and his workers worked tirelessly through hot and wet conditions to do the job.
    They were very polite and informed me every step of the way as to what they were doing that day and why they were doing it.

    The final outcome.of the work was to a high standard and it was done at a reasonable price.

    Would definitely hire them to do further work and would also recommend to others

    Cheers Matt

  • Groundwork & footings

    Matt is a straight talking, easy to work with professional. He explained everything in detail, asked pertinent questions and answered any queries that I had. He gave me full disclosure of everything planned, method of work and went way beyond what I expected, often suggesting ideas that would benefit the job. He always arrived exactly when he said he would, and completed tasks on time, allowing me to organise other work alongside him. He completed groundworks and drainage for me to an excellent standard. His final cost matched his quote, and I would have no hesitation in using his services again.

  • Take down of concrete canopy

    Stable groundworks contacted me about the job I had put on my builder, which needed the correct tools and skills to be carried out. Matt was friendly and informative of how the work will be carried out and honest about what it will look like afterwards. The concrete canopy was chopped back as far as could be with the machinery. They made sure it was tidied up afterwards, just wish when the removal of the metal poles took place, it hadn't of cracked the concrete step at the bottom, but has gave us the idea to improve that step with brickwork.

    Thank you for you and your team carrying out the work. My builder is a great way of finding someone to do work that might not always seem easy to find the correct tradesmen by ringing around yourself.

  • Base for Garden room

    Booked Matt, Gareth and his team to do a summer house base and patio extension. This involved extensive work to level out the garden and retain a pre existing wall and fence boundary with sleepers. They took pride in every aspect of the process and completed the job in good time, with Matt talking us through every aspect of the job as he we went along. Whilst also coming up with excellent ideas as things progressed. We kept the lads fuelled on coffee and bacon sandwiches and nothing was ever to much trouble for them. Cracking bunch of lads and we have already asked them to return and lay the new turf when summer house is in.

  • Foundations and casting of garden retaining walls

    Absolutely excellent. Matt has been working my back garden over a long period, he fitted in with me and I fitted in with him. I had a sketchy idea of what I wanted and Matt showed me alternatives and together we drew up a fairly long term project, this bit just complete I’d call phase 2. Lots of praise for Matt and his team, he knows his stuff, knows his suppliers and what he says is always the proper way. Groundworks, block walling, levelling, drainage and concrete slabs, all done as promised. I’ll be sure to give him good advance notice of when I’m ready for phase 3.

  • Demolish and remove garden wal

    Matt did a brilliant job of removing our horrible ugly grey block garden wall. He worked quickly and efficiently on one of the hottest days of the year, left the site nice and tidy and took away all the debris. We are very pleased with the open aspect. Thank you very much.

    Happy with the end product and completely satisfied with the job.

  • Summerhouse foundations

    I hire Matt to lay a slab base for, he turned up on time to discuss my requirements and to take measurements for to estimate the price of the job. Having looked the other estimates l decided to give him the work.
    He and his team turned up to do the job on time and they worked hard and were very friendly, he estimated the would take 2.5 days which it did the estimation of materials was spot no waste.
    His estimation was a fair price and he left the site clean and tidy also left behind a super finished slab base which l am well pleased with.
    Thanks Matt and the team H Bannister

  • Soil stack connection

    !00% recommended for anyone wanting groundworks done. Matt is extremely knowledgeable and carefully thought out all stages of this job, especially when it turned out the drains ran in a totally different direction than we thought they did and there were issues with the levels of the existing pipe runs making things very tight. Matt worked efficiently and tidily, and showed me progress at all stages. One thing I particularly appreciated was the way I was informed all the way through by phone calls about when Matt would arrive at our house, especially when he got delayed another job.

  • Driveway hump and drainage

    Great job by Matt and his team. Very knowledgeable and thorough. Lovely neat job, we’re very pleased and would definitely recommend. Prompt with his quote and once the date was booked for the job there were no changes and he was here ready to start which was great.

    What a fantastic group. So pleased I found them. Matt is very knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. He took his time to ensure the job was absolutely bang on. Thank you Matt! I will and am going to use them again and would definitely recommend them to anyone needing work like this.

  • New Driveway

    100% recommended for anyone! From the original viewing Matt was our first choice. Before going ahead Matt came down 3-4 times to give us options, showed us different types of blocks/colours and wanted us as customers to be happy. Matt also wanted his job not to be bog standard and provided us with suggestions to make the drive look outstanding. Additionally we also gave Matt to change our back garden.

    Matt and his his team were always tidy and clean, making sure no mess was left inside and were polite. Once started, they worked really hard, we wanted a change on our key kerbs and Matt was very calm about it and was willing to make the change without any fuss. Matt worked efficiently and tidily, and showed me progress at all stages. One thing I particularly appreciated was the way I was informed all the way through by phone calls about when Matt would arrive at our house.
    At the end of the day the results are there to be seen and the drive has made our house stand out.
    Matt still came back after the job was complete to spot any issues with the blocks and replace them (due to cracks).

    I personally recommend Matt for any ground works - he knows exactly what he is doing and his down to earth attitude will ensure that the money spent in getting your job done is absolutely worth it.

  • Foundation for hot tub

    Mat was fantastic. Keeping me up to speed on all progress and providing great advice throughout. They were professional, helpful and completed the job to a really standard. I won't hesitate to give Mat a call again when I require his expertise.

  • Garage dismantle - asbestos roof

    Very polite and professional in the beginning. Ordered new shed that should of arrived well before the old garage was due to be removed. Company let us down over delivery of shed so garage removal had to be pushed back which Matthew Walton did straight away with understanding (so I thought), Shed finally arrived and Matthew Walton said he would squeeze us in 3 weeks later. The night before the job was due he messaged to say they were running late with the previous job due to the rain and would be with us about dinner time next day and would ring when on the way. I messaged after lunch, got no reply then telephoned, I received a message saying about 2 hours. I never heard anything after that and my next 2 messages were ignored. Husband rang at night and was told they would be there the next day for 11 o'clock. That morning he got a text message and said he would not be doing the job at all. I arranged for the job to be done myself but my messages are being ignored. Such as shame as he seemed a professional man.

  • Demolish and clear concrete prefabricated garage

  • External drain / sewer leak?

    On discovering sewage seeping into my garden I really didn’t know what to do so attempted to contact suitable companies via my.builder. Mat was one of the first tradesmen to contact me and promptly suggested that the issue should be dealt with by Severn Trent. Without his sound advice I probably would have ended up paying out a fortune to another contractor, particularly as there was another that was very quick to tell me that Severn Trent wouldn’t be able to help, when they obviously could. Thanks Mat for being so honest with me giving me every confidence in considering Stable Groundworks for any future work.

  • Concrete base for wooden Shed

Thank you Matt!

  • Dig to pipe away rain water from fall of land.

    Don't be put off by the state of their vans! They do not give an indication of their standard of work. Although newly formed under the "Stable Groundworks "banner the firm has many years of experience in the building and allied trades. They assess and rectify problems working diligently and leaving no mess . As a relatively new set up they do require payment on completion of work. Well recommended.

  • Manhole fitting

    Good communication and good work. Very helpful and was able to work around my time.

  • Pipe post digging in ground

    Nice work done and clean and wash the path which he used it it’s worth to hire him for any one

    An amazing job done well worth the money, the guys were very clued up on the groundworks and drainage, they talked me through the job as it was done, they left the job very clean every night and put boards down for us to walk on to and from door to road, would definitely recommend this company for all work to be done in future.
