James is a pleasure to deal with and did a fantastic job in our back garden. He laid 2 patios and built a wall, all for a very competitive price and with no fuss or mess. The work was of the highest standard and his whole team were friendly and helpful throughout the build. I would not hesitate to use him for our next project as he went above and beyond in his communication and standard of work. His attention to detail will amaze you. More...

They level and put new lawn in and a patio at the back with lots of drainage throughout to sort out our flooding issues. They were very polite attentive and very respectful of our house given we are in a mid terrace. Would highly recommend them! More...

They turned up on time, to the minute. And never stopped working for the full day. I couldn’t believe it. They were so friendly and helpful from start to finish and they went out of there way to just ensure I was happy with every single part of the process.

James and team were an absolute pleasure to deal with. Their work is second to none. They are a hard-working team providing efficient results, closing out the job promptly and to a very high standard.

While we had our ideas on what would work, James was very transparent on what would or would not work and the pro’s and cons of some of our ideas. This feedback as experts in their field was important to us. His advice was paramount to achieving what we can only describe as a show garden.

We have moved from having an unusable space (field of muck) to a showpiece to be proud of. You know the work is impressive when a number of your neighbours are popping their heads over the fence before he leaves requesting his details.

James and Team was absolutely great! I never had to spend anytime in inspecting the ongoing work, they knew what they were doing from the start and James updated us every morning afternoon and evening what was going on and what was planned, you don't see many contractors with customer focus as James , he was willing to change request , listen to all the ideas (am not a native english speaker so its tricky here :)) and come up with a solution which suited our budget, and I can truly recommend him, especially for people who are not Native English speakers, this guy understand you so good!

James and Team are wonderful, James has extensive knowledge in landscaping and he quickly identified what my place need , what would look good and also went extra mile and suggested various options, he had no issues expanding changing the my request on the spot and he did it with a smile, most important James is customer centric and would go any extra mile to meet customer expectations, would highly recommend him.
