Steve and his team were very professional and friendly from the start, they arrived on time every day and cleaned up at the end. We are very happy with the work performed, they installed new fence panels, removed all the waste, and laid new patios and lawn. We have recommended Steve and his team to others.

New Garden/patio replacement/garage demolition Garden Maintenance
STAC (Steve) provided a very competitive quote for our large garden project which we were happy to accept. Steve and the team arrived on time and got to work straightaway. Nothing was too much trouble for STAC as we changed out minds on a few things as work progressed, he provided advice and suggestions which was spot on and meant that we ended up with a fantastic garden which way beyond what we initially visualised. Steve is a great communicator, we spoke constantly throughout to ensure we were happy at each stage of the project. Steve/STAC if you considering having any garden works done make sure you invite these guys to quote.
Finally Steve is a very nice guy and we will definitely use him again for any future works. Highly recommended.

New Driveway, Patio, side access and outbuilding Landscaping
*DO NOT BOTHER GOING ANYWHERE ELSE!*
Steve and his team are EXACTLY what you are looking for. Like many of the reviews before Steve and his team worked extremely hard, under horrendous weather conditions to get a lot done in an unbelievable amount of time. Steve’s attention to detail and friendly manner made this project so easy and enjoyable.
He always kept in communication about changes that needed to be done and overall did an amazing job transforming our garden and driveway.
The standard of work is very high and STAC have set the bar for future projects.
It’s very difficult to find someone who is honest, has integrity and quite simply, does what he says!
Everyone has been completed shocked with the transformation of our garden and driveway and have made such lovely comments.
I would highly recommend STAC to anyone.
Thanks again Steve.

Back of house paving Garden Maintenance
I am absolutely delighted with Steve’s work. Steve ended up doing pretty much the whole garden (paving, flower beds and turfing) after a change of plan. The result FAR EXCEEDS ALL EXPECTATIONS! The job was completed to a very high standard, quickly, with pinpoint accuracy and an incredible attention to details. Steve is clearly on top of his game. I have some more paving work due at the front of my house, needless to say I won’t think of anyone else than Steve to do the job.

Replace decking with paving Decking
STAC were really good, did a beautiful job of replacing my decking with patio. Steve was accommodating to my ideas and took on board what I wanted and went with it. He is very thorough and a perfectionist, which is ideal when you want a job doing well! He and his team worked like Trojans despite the awful weather. I have never seen builders work so hard. Patio looks absolutely gorgeous and he also ordered soil for my huge flowerbed that was created and filled it all in. When my pergola kit did not fit together properly (pergola supplier's fault) he bought some more wood and mitred the joints himself to fit. Goes above and beyond what was required but I think it is the perfectionist in him that likes to leave the job done well. Very satisfied customer.

I contacted STAC to rebuild our front garden wall and repave the front path. Stephen was very helpful when offering an accurate quote of the works and advising us on what was good value for money. When the work began Stephen and his colleagues were thoroughly professional, punctual and completed the job on time.
I would recommend them to anyone looking to do any landscaping work.

Stephen from STAC Landscaping completed the job to an exceptionally high standard. I really appreciated his professionalism and reliable attitude to the job. He was straight talking, polite and respectful. He did exactly what I wanted, ie. change outside gate from left to right side opening. He left my garden neat and tidy. He did the job quickly and efficiently and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend STAC Landscaping to anyone. I will definitely be contacting them again in the future for further work. I am extremely happy about everything this firm offered.

Fantastic job undertaken by Steve and his crew to completely renovate my garden!
Punctual starts every morning and they put a proper graft in every day. Unlike most other builders who's timing is not a priority.
They work to a very high standard, clean up as they go along and the attention to detail is exemplary. Not a bad word to say about the job done or the people who did it. An example to all builders.
Would highly recommend to anybody looking to get work done.

Sue & Ron Cheshunt Landscaping
We reviewed a number of landscapers and came across STAC. We were impressed by all the positive reviews in fact they seemed too good to be true however we decided to call Steve in for a quote. It was clear when Steve arrived that he knew his stuff. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional and made numerous suggestions for our project. Based on our first impressions and Steve's quote we decided to use STAC. Steve and his team were fantastic arriving promptly every morning and working virtually non-stop all day. They finished a complete strip out and redesign of our garden in 4 days. We now have a beautiful low maintenance garden with brick walls, decking and astroturf. We would not hesitate to recommend STAC to anyone considering a garden make-over. Thanks Steve.

garden landscaping Landscaping
We hired Steve and his team to build a perimeter wall, outbuilding-office and completely landscape our garden including hard landscaping over 120 sqm. Steve and team were amazing, he quoted us 3 weeks to complete when others quoted 3 months and he delivered the job on time and to a very high standard, we could not be happier. His team of 6 people arrived on time every day and were polite and hardworking, Steve organised all the materials to be delivered to site as he needed them, he managed the project very efficiently. We have hired lots of builders over the years and we have to say that he is the best by far we have employed. I have already recommended him to 2 of my neighbours as I know they will be please with the outcome. cost wise he is not the cheapest but the costs stay as agreed and you truly get what you pay for with Steve, cannot recommend him highly enough.

Garden rebuild Landscaping
We hired STAC to complete a redesign of the garden (White walls and astro turf picture), I cannot emphasize how happy we are with the job.
It was reasonably priced, beautiful materials, multiple consultations, and completed in just four days (a day early).
The guys arrived promptly at the agreed time on day one and were there first thing all the way to completion. Complete professionals.
I have already recommended them to a friend and have no hesitation recommending them to this forum.
Cheers again Steve (and your boys).

Patio work Landscaping
STAC Landscaping has just completed the work on our patio. This involved extensive new brickwork, repairs to existing walls, laying of paving stones at various levels and installing balustrade spindles and handrails to the new patio area and steps. Their work is of a very high standard and they were reliable and hard-working. They turned up when they said they would, and completed the work in the time they stated and to the original quote given, despite us making changes to the design as the project went on. From the beginning and well before the work started, Steve (the boss) researched materials, paving stones and handrails etc. for us to choose from. His communication throughout the project has been excellent and he made several visits here before undertaking the work. Steve remained on site here working with his team and to oversee the project and to maintain the high quality of workmanship. We are absolutely delighted with the result and he has now created some useful outdoor space for us to enjoy. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending this company for any building and landscaping work. A big thank you to Steve and his team!

Garden makeover Landscaping
Firstly thank you for the work you and your team did for us.. The choice of Natural Paving Barley Sandstone, Sleepers, Grass and other materials used worked well and provides an excellent foundation to plan a planting scheme in the future.. The garden is also now much easier to maintain.
There was a fair bit of ground levelling to do, and old paving to remove, which Steve's team undertook with ease.. His team turned up every day, on time, and accommodated any changes and ideas that needed to be incorporated as work progressed.. I found STAC landscaping via the MyBuilder.com website and look forward to hiring them again in the future.

Wow! Right from the first phone call I was impressed. Steve and his team are punctual, hard working, trustworthy and are all really nice guys who take pride in their work and seem to enjoy doing it. I couldn't believe how hard these guys work and Steve was very professional in dealing with any issues or changes to design (including neighbours!)
Steve organised all the different trades who were also up to his high standards and it all ran like clockwork They even finished the works slightly early. Steve provided a thorough quotation, he detailed everything for us and any extras or additional works were discussed and agreed before being undertaken.
STAC have some very happy customers who would have no hesitation in recommending them and we're now looking forward to some nice weather to spend time in our garden.

The quote from STAC Landscaping was not the lowest one we received but we choose Steve because he was punctual and knowledgeable.

Steve has done a lot for us over the last month- repairing a fence, re skimming a wall, and a large landscaping job - They built walls and a large shed as well as a patio and cobblestones.
I'd really recommend him - quotation was good value, he provided good advice, stuck to everything he said he'd do, worked really hard and provided us with a great service.
We are really happy with the job he has done, and will be using STAC again.

Build a shed with electricity and insulation Garages & Sheds
Steve and his team did a great job from start to finish and we are very pleased and impressed with the result. The communication was excellent and when we needed to make changes to the plan - as always happens at some point - Steve was sensible and easy-going and we ended up with exactly what we wanted, within budget and in good time. The quality of work and attention to detail was very good. They turned up every day by 8am and worked hard and steadily. They tidied up after themselves and were easy to have around. Steve organised roofers, carpenters, plasterers and so on using his own network of tradesmen and they were all excellent, efficient and courteous. We didn't need to worry about what was happening when, as Steve took charge of that and made sure it all went smoothly. It all moved very quickly indeed and with minimal fuss.
In just 2.5 weeks we have ended up with a very large, stylish garden room with a 2mx1m skylight, bifold door and window, with wood burning stove, cedar cladding, fully insulated, with electricity and underfloor heating, all beautifully plastered and ready for us to decorate as we wish next week. (Steve would have organised that for us too if we'd asked). He also created an external storage area and put up some sturdy new fencing. He went beyond the call of duty and did some extra bits and pieces for us without charge.
We highly recommend STAC landscaping and would be happy for anyone to come and take a look at the work Steve did for us.

Stephen was amazing! He visited and gave a quote the day after I posted the job. The quote was very reasonable, so was accepted, and the work was arranged to be carried out a couple of days later. Stephen arrived with his assistant on the dot of 8'clock, as arranged. The job was not an easy one, yet Stephen/STAC carried out the work diligently and most professionally. Furthermore, Stephen offered some excellent advice on works that may follow the disc-cutting & breaking out of the concrete and reinforcement that he carried out. On completion, and much to my surprise, the rubble that resulted from the work was neatly bagged up, and taken off-site. The area was left spotlessly clean on completion! I really can't rate Stephen highly enough - thoroughly recommended!

Replace old fencing and lay a patio Landscaping
It is difficult deciding who to ask to quote for your job especially after reading the feedback of so many tradesmen. However I took the plunge and asked Steve from STAC to quote for the job. He arrived when he said he would with phone call to say he was on his way. I felt confident he knew what he was talking about and had done the type of job many times before. He advised finishes to patio which were spot on. The price was reasonable and I felt confident in his ability.
The day arrived for the work to begin. The team were on time and worked steadily and efficiently. Steve uses local well established trusted suppliers which we liked. They cleaned up every day taking the rubbish away daily. Steve checked details with us along the way. The team were trustworthy, quiet and efficient.
The end result was beautiful and was as I had envisaged. We would not hesitate to recommend Steve and his team.

His attention to detail ensured that the finished result was exceptional. They worked exceptionally hard, were courteous, trustworthy, hard working and polite. Nothing was too much trouble and they finished the job in such a short time, without anything being compromised. I would have no doubt recommending this firm for anything sort of building or garden work. I will definitely be using again and recommending to all my friends. We are already get loads of compliments about our garden project. Thanks Steve.

New Drive - Chingford Tarmac Surfaces
Steve and his team contacted me to say they could come and begin works early, so they arrived on Wednesday afternoon and within 4 hours they had removed my tired old looking drive and flattened it all out. Over the following two days they erected three ornate walls, removed a 60ft fence, installed a new 60ft fence and paved my new drive!
The work was of a high quality and the team polite, efficient and willing to offer helpful advice on other DIY tasks. Also, some concrete suffered minor damage due to a horrific downpour of rain before everything had dried, so Steve came along and promptly repaired the concrete and even dropped off some extra sand to sweep into the paving in case some had been washed away.
At the same time, my roof stared leaking so Steve recommended a roofer who came along and did a great job of re-felting my flat roof extension and replacing a load of broken tiles.
I would certainly recommend STAC and will happily use them again for any future construction work.

low retaining wall repairs Bricklaying
Overall we are very pleased with STAC's work. The estimate was reasonable and came to us in good time.
A team of six arrived when they said they would, worked hard and completed the work in one day. Both the brickwork and the rendering were excellent. And to round it off left the site clean and tidy when they had finished. What pleased us a lot was the friendliness of the team: it is good to have people around who are both amenable and cheerful - spurred on no doubt the the endless supply of tea which they made for themselves!
We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone wanting similar work done. Thanks to them all.

STAC built a new front porch and laid a patio at the side and rear of the house. Firstly Steve came round three times to ensure correct measurements and pricing were taken before we agreed on the job and was full of useful tips and ideas for the project as a whole. Steve and the team arrives and did the job in three days to a high standardand can safely say it all looks fantastic (exactly as we discussed originally). The work was done with little fuss or mess and even the neighbours commented on how good the guys were while they were working. Steve also did little extras at no extra cost (such as re-turfing part of my lawn so it was level with the new patio) which obvious is fantastic. I cannot recommend Steve enough and will be passing his name on to others thinking of similar work.

We used STAC to lay a new path, remove a flower bed and turf over it, replace a fence panel and clear and retain the back section of our garden to create a kids play area with a mini rockery, play bark for trampoline area, play tunnels and a natural play area with logs, rocks etc. We are extremely happy with the results. I was unsure of some of my design ideas and for a while felt I should get a garden designer who could suggest ideas and draw me a plan etc, Steve reassured me that they would be able to create something good using some photos I had collected online for inspiration and could try out different ideas to see what worked best. I needn't have worried as Steve exceeded my expectations, he visited to discuss ideas and make suggestions and incorporated all of the features I asked for. The team worked extremely hard and everyone we show is amazed at what they achieved in just 2 days. Our children are delighted with the play area and our whole garden is transformed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend STAC if you want a really efficient job done within budget.

Remove and replace Garden Wall Bricklaying
Steve was hired to remove an old brick wall approx. 20mtrs by 2mtrs and dispose of. Also to dig out and lay concrete for a hard standing for cars etc., and build a small retaining wall. His quote was very prompt and reasonable and his advice on the job very useful. I accepted his quote and he and his team arrived exactly on time promised and got straight to work. In the first day. the wall was removed and disposed of. the ground work was dug and the concrete poured, all to an excellent standard and with the utmost care to attention of detail. Steve and his crew were extremely hard working and clean around the work area which was on a public footpath , On the second day the fence work was erected, again to the same high standard and many neighbours and passers buy said how impressed they were. Steve also erected a small retaining wall which was very attractive. My wife and I are extremely pleased with the work and would not hesitate to recommend Steve and his team.

We are absolutely thrilled with the work that Steve and his team did with removing our old fence and replacing it with a wonderful, secure new fence. They have completely transformed our garden.
Steve and his team have been a pleasure to deal with, from quote, which was competitive, to completion of work, which is fantastic! They carried out the work quickly and with as little disruption possible (our rear garden is only accessible through the house). We've received a number of compliments on the brilliant work that Steve and his team did from neighbours who have also benefited from the new fence - not just for the fence (which they love) but also about how great Steve and his team were to deal with (diplomacy when working on a project that affects neighbouring properties is a great asset!). The dedication that Steve and his team obviously have, and the high standard of work that they carry out, is why we would absolutely recommend them to anyone wishing to transform their garden. Brilliant!

I hired STAC to replace a crumbling wall with a new fence and replace some old side-access gates with brand new ones that are much more secure and lockable. He did an excellent and very efficient job at the best price that I was quoted by any of the several tradesmen I contacted. He also went beyond what was agreed, by building a new bit of wall to make the finished job look tidier. The whole job was done in less than a day, and in a very friendly manner.

Steve gave a prompt and competitive quote, and was able to make us a new fence within a few days (after the winter storms!) The quality of the workmanship was excellent, and he was able to complete the installation of a new 40' fence in a day. Steve was concerned to leave the job safe, secure and tidy - which he did. He also helped with a problem with our drains...not nice, but he jumped and sorted it out. This was nothing to do with the fencing job, but Steve was happy to help - very kind and generous.

A new driveway to be designed and built Driveways (Paved & Loose Surface)
Stephen of STAC designed and built my driveway in January this year. Right from the first visit Stephen was very informative and clear of what would need to be done, how it would be done and suggested many alternatives which were better than our own ideas.
His team were all very polite and courteous and very hard working. Everyone worked quickly and seemed to be very "in sync" to get the work progressing. I especially liked how Stephen had arranged materials to be delivered and rubbish to be collected, there was no waiting around or excuses, the whole process was very smooth. On each day Stephen and his team made a point to clear all rubbish from the pavement area and stored all materials safely and securely.
The driveway has been finished to a very high standard and the quality of materials is very good. I am very pleased with the work and would fully recommend STAC, a pleasure to have the guys complete the work, we've already had a number of neighbours ask for his details. Definitely 10 out of 10 !!

Steve and his team started work on 4th September and their work was completed on the 13th September 2013. They cleared the garden and levelled it which involved removing some 75 tons of soil and and rubble from the existing raised patio and paving. They built a 12 x 10 ft garage/hobby room with pitched tiled roof and rendered elevations. Replaced the boundary fence to both sides of the garden and renewed side entrance gate. Laid paving with an integrated circular lawn,raised railway sleeper flower beds to one side and dug and finished a small pond with waterfall in the opposite flower bed. Steve organised the other tradesmen that were required. Steve gave us a fair and competitive quote, they turned up for work when he said they would and they worked all day despite some very inclement weather.Steve and his team are extremely hard working and tidy. Steve supplied helpful design ideas when required and nothing was too much trouble for him. The site was totally cleared of all rubbish and left tidy. I have no reservations in recommending his work.

I hired Steve after having me him and received his quote for the work to be completed. Steve had advised me that the work I required could all be completed in one day by him and his crew. To my surprise not only did he stick with his word, and complete the required work within one day, but also cleaned up after himself and fixed a damaged brick wall in the front of my house (for no extra charge) and which I hadn't even asked to be fixed. All were done to an amazing high standard. He even saved the rose tree that I had neglected to ask him to work around - but which he did anyway, incorporating it brilliantly into the overall patio area.
So, to summarise: a high quality piece of work, extremely competitively priced and carried out with so little fuss that you would not have known him and his team had even been there if it wasn't for the brand new patio i now have in my rear garden. I would recommend him highly and would not hesitate to ask him to return for any further work required.

Need garden to be re-fenced Fencing
We wanted a handmade fence partly out of necessity, because some of the posts had to go into existing post holes in paving stones that weren't the standard distance apart for panels, and also because we also wanted a feather edge finish with the posts only visible on one side.
When we discussed the job on site for the first time he had never put up a handmade fence before but I could tell from the way he described how he would install the fence to match how the garden drops down that he would do a great job, and he really did. He was very competitive on price and very keen to negotiate based on other quotes, to see if he could beat them (which he did).
On site he and his team were really friendly and polite, working through a couple of unanticipated issues with us and our neighbour as the job progressed. All the new materials were delivered the same morning they started, all the old fencing was removed and the whole thing was completed in a couple of days.
It looks fantastic!
He called a couple of days later to check everything was ok and sent someone to site to tidy up a few bolts that were left sticking out a bit on a neighbour's side.
I would highly recommend him and hire him again without any doubt.

I wasn't always sure exactly what I wanted and Steve would give great input to how things could be done.
Steve and his team are true professionals, dedicated to what they are doing and most of all they enjoy and completely immerse themselves in it.
What else can I say, I've got a beautiful new driveway and wall at the front of my bungalow and a beautiful new patio and wall at the rear, I would recommend Steve and his team to anyone. Thank you again Steve and Team.

Front wall and block paving to front garden Bricklaying
It has been a pleasure to deal with Steve and his affable team. We met on Saturday 23rd March, to discuss my project, which was to build a new front wall and add block paving to my front garden, agreed a price and specification and following a cancellation, the work was undertaken and completed to a very high standard on Wednesday 27th March !
Steve has an extremely keen eye of detail and came up with a colour way on the bricks and paving which exactly matched our requirements. The actual job looks stunning, completed to budget and specification and my home was left very tidy afterwards. In fact nothing was too much trouble for Steve.
I would have no hesitation in recommending STAC for bricklaying jobs. Indeed I understand that Steve has been approached by a few neighbours who have witnessed the standard of workmanship and craft first hand during his teams work at my home.

Complete new driveway with garden area to be fenced off Driveways (Paved & Loose Surface)
We wanted a completely redesigned driveway with flower beds and boarders. Steve came around several times discussing options, ideas, and designs with us. Steve listened to all our concerns, suggesting alternatives and solutions; even implementing ones that would give him and his team extra work. The work was carried out in a day like promised, minimizing disruption and mess. At first I was a little concerned that all this work was to be completed in just a day, but like other reviews before, there was simply no need to worry. Steve and his team arrived at 07:30 and continued all day until the work was completed leaving no mess what so ever behind. The work was completed to a very high standard, and we are absolutely thrilled at the results. I have no hesitation in recommending Steve and his team. If we need any more work done which is in his field, then Steve will be back.

Wooden Garden Fence Fencing
Stephen responded very quickly to my post and he provided a very reasonable quote the works. The actual works were completed within a day, thanks to Stephen and his team who started early and worked really hard on a bitterly cold day. I am really very pleased with the work, the standard of which is very high and surpassed my expectations. Stephen was in contact during the day regarding a few technical issues and I was pleased that he kept me informed of these rather than dragging things out. I was also greatful that he and his team took great care in my home given that access to the garden is through the house.
I have no hesitation in recommending Stephen and his team

Dog Flap - Exterior Wall / Lounge Bricklaying
Am very pleased with work and service. Steve came round and gave us a reasonable quote and also time when the work can be carried out, Steve understood the urgency we had to fit the dog flap and so had it completed within a few hours. A point to note was that the extra parts I ordered were incorrect yet Steve went and purchased necessary additions to complete the job. The work has been finished to a very high standard and we are very pleased with the work especially as we have a new build and his work has matched the finish really well, even providing a step on the outside for our dog to find it easier coming in and out of the house. Very tidy and also cleaned any debris after work had finished. Steve was also very polite and we are happy with his service. Highly recommended and will use again

Pathway and steps with drainage Driveways (Paved & Loose Surface)
I was shocked to see the feedback below. Steve completed a job for me mid Dec, I’ve worked with many builders in the last few years, Steve has been one of the most professional I have met in this time. The day we were due to start I arrived at 7am. All his team were there, machinery unloaded ready to start at 7am in the morning! The work was carried out efficiently and professionally. I was told what they were doing each step of the way and all my questions answered. I’d organized delivery of York stone and unfortunately the delivery company were running late, so instead of holding the job up Steve said if they delivered to us first and he would be happy to unload the 2 x pallets by hand! Some of the stones were huge & had to be carried by two guys, so it wasn’t a small task! He did this for no extra cost or complaints. Steve & his team worked throughout the day, stopping very briefly for a 15min lunch. They made incredible progress; I’d had company’s quote 4-5 days on the same work. But Steve has the right equipment and a very solid team working with him. The following day another 7am start and the work was completed around 11 am. The site was left tidy and I’m very happy with everything he did. I was very impressed with Steve & his team. I couldn’t fault his work! There were no extra charges or problems, he quoted the work, and carried out everything he said he would do. All I can say is I would highly recommend Steve & his team!

brick-up 3 windows and door enrtrance N13 Bricklaying
COWBOY Builder. Dishonest. Would not give receipt after payment. Only gave hand written quote as a receipt. After many requests has still not sent me a proper receipt. He sent me a message stating that if he gave a receipt he would charge an extra 20%. He also quoted £150 for the day plus materials, finshed the job at 2pm same day and then charged £500. Unfortunately had problems accessing my emails and could not see other quotes from other builders. He was the only one who called so i appointed him regrettably. I am leaving this feedback so others dont get cheated by this man. AVOID or else. VERY DISHONEST!!!!!

STAC Landscaping's reply:
Firstly, the client could not even be bothered to turn up on the job as arranged.We agreed on a cash price of £500 and a start date. I was sceptical about starting the job as I hadn't even met the client and the property was derelict. Once started we arranged for half of the money to be paid up front to cover the material costs. This was paid by the client, then off he went and I started blocking up the doorways and windows as requested. I had to risk my personal safety as there were squatters in the building, which I had to evict. I finished the job and I was paid up in full and was asked for a handwritten receipt, which I gave.there were 2 men working on the job up to 2'oc. VERY dishonest client as I was paid and he was happy with the job

Steve and his small team carried out some alterations and repairs to brickwork and laid some new brick paving areas in our front garden. They did an excellent job, were punctual, polite, well organised and made excellent progess despite the bad weather. The quality of work was good and they cleared up when they had finished. I was very happy with what they did and would use them again and would recommend them.

Driveway replacement, tree/shrub removal, fencing Driveways (Paved & Loose Surface)
I highly recommend Steve and his team. I wanted my whole drive remodelled which required the removal of trees and shrubs, a garden area and a wall. Steve came quickly to give a quote. He was very helpful in thinking through what materials I should have and spent lots of time on the phone directing me to various websites etc to see pictures of different finishes. He told me it would take 1 day to complete the drive and I honestly didn't believe him. The team arrived early (6.30am) in the morning and left at 5.30 in the evening with the drive and path completely finished! The quality of the work is superb. The operation worked like clockwork - these guys really know what they're doing. In addition to completing the drive they also rendered a wall, replaced cracked bricks and air brick in my bay window, repointed several areas of wall and created a new concrete plinth along the outside of my house. My neighbours were out marvelling at the speed and quality of the job. I've asked Steve to quote for more work in my back garden. Hire Steve - I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Hard landscaping - front "garden" Groundwork & Foundations
I cannot recommend Steve and his team highly enough. They have just finished completely remodelling and paving my front garden. Steve kept up regular communication between me booking him and the job starting. He gave me lots of advise about how to achieve what I wanted and gave me a very fair price.
The work has been completed to an extremely high standard, with amazing attention to detail. They all worked incredibly hard, and not only kept the garden area clean, but also paid a lot of attention to keeping the whole working area clean and tidy for my neighbours. They were also very respectful of my home.
I'm so pleased with the work that I have already asked Steve to come back in the Spring to do my back garden. If you book Steve to do a job for you, I'm sure you'll be really pleased with the outcome.

Positive Client Reference taken by MyBuilder Bricklaying
This company is ace! They arrived when they said they would, worked a 10hr day, did everything that I asked for and more. They were polite, clean, cleared up after themselves. I was so delighted with the first job (clearing back garden and landscaping) that I asked them to come back and do the front. They dug up bushes, laid cobbles, built a new doorstep, replanted bushes, Again, well pleased with results and highly recommended. All on time, well within budget Stephen's strengths are that he does what he says, gives excellent customer care and has a great team working with him.
