Chris is a craftsman who understood what we were trying to achieve and then made suggestions to improve the end result. It was done without pressure and at a minimal additional cost. Because of an initial materials shortage the time between booking and work starting was long, but that's not Chris's fault.
The standard of work by Chris and Noel is excellent. The new, raised hardstanding and the garden have been left neat and tidy, and we are having complimentary remarks already - the day after the work finished.
It's a real pleasure to be able to recommend with no reservations a local, good, friendly and totally competent business. We do so with thanks. (Reviewed October 2021)
Chris and Noel - so good we used them twice. Yet another excellent piece of work combining landscaping and paving.
Very professional and flexible to changes to the plan as the work progressed. They also added some very useful input to the original plan which improved the end result.
Thoroughly recommended and would use again. (Reviewed May 2021)
We have used Chris before 6 years ago at a previous property and had no hesitation in asking him again to carry out extensive paving works on our property frontage including a dropped kerb for an in and out driveway.
Chris and Noel were with us for 4 weeks and were a real pleasure to have around. The workmanship in our opinion is second to none and it is very obvious on all levels that Chris knows exactly what he is doing and what is required.
We cannot recommend Chris and his team highly enough and have no hesitation in recommending his services! A mention also for Noel, Andy & Richard who were on site and part of a great team.
Well done Chris!
Ps they do like a cup of tea!!! (Reviewed January 2021)

This year, there have been three new driveways with curb drops in our street, each one undertaken by Chris and Noel. Put simply, they do a fantastic job, Chris runs a very slick operation and that's why we followed in our neighbours footsteps! No regrets whatsover! Many thanks! (Reviewed December 2019)
Agree with previous comments, Chris and his colleague done a fantastic job, looks amazing.

I am extremely pleased with my new paved driveway, steps, fence, dropped kerb and pavement. All the work has been carried out to a very high standard with very close attention to detail and to my requirements. Chris and Noel worked very neatly and were respectful of adjoining neighbours and other road users throughout. I highly recommend this company and will use again. (Reviewed August 2019)
Excellent job to build drive and new dropped kerb access in Peacehaven. From our first meeting he gave me the confidence that he was a very experienced tradesman and the best person to carry out the task. I would highlight taking pride in delivering a great service, attention to detail, punctuality, good positive communication, clean and tidy approach. (Reviewed June 2019)
Chris did an great job on our driveway.
We had heard of the company through word of mouth and knew it would be a high standard of work. The level of service, communication and professionalism was excellent and it has completely transformed the front of our house. Both the guys were very friendly, polite and courteous at all times. The job was finished much quicker than we expected and was exactly what we had hoped for. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for this kind of work to be done. (Reviewed May 2019)
Chris did a great job in difficult weather. The job wasn't straight forward and required more work than he may have originally envisaged. The end result surpassed our expectations. Chris is obviously a tradesman who cares about the quality of his work and I would certainly recommend him to my family and friends
(Reviewed February 2019)
Chris demonstrated an excellent understanding of the requirements of the project and gave good advice on how to achieve the results desired.
All work was carried out to a a very high standard using professional materials and equipment.
Both Chris and Noel were extremely friendly, neat, tidy and completed the project exactly to plan.
Thoroughly recommended! (Reviewed January 2019)
Chris dismantled an old conservatory, the greenhouse, and an old shed, and removed a lot of bricks and slabs I had gathered over the years. He cleared and levelled the rear garden and front driveway, prior to laying a large rear patio, sun terrace and concrete base for a cabin. The garden and frontage have been transformed, it is brilliant. All of the groundworks were carried out with great professionalism and I am very confident the resulting surfaces will prove to be first class and durable. Very pleased and I would definitely recommend Chris who was always polite, helpful, willing to give advice and considered the neighbours as he worked. (Reviewed September 2018)

Fantastic service all through their work. Clean, tidy, polite and trustworthy. Will recommend them to others. (Reviewed July 2018)
From the first visit to discuss our ideas of extending our patio (which he laid a few years ago) to the completion of the work, Chris has been helpful and is very knowledgeable. While they were here they were very tidy and efficient (and it was very hot!) and the end result is really fantastic, as we knew it would be. He is very professional and we would never consider anyone else for this type of work. (Reviewed July 2018)
