The quote was competitive and the finished deck and gazebo are really, Excellent. Claire is friendly and helpful and Al and his team worked quickly and we are really pleased with our patio and gazebo.. There was an unexpected hiatus in the middle of the project. If this hadn’t happened it would be a five star review. Thank you so much Claire and Al.

Zero stars for Al's Landscaping. They started in June '21, disappeared by July and have not been seen since. They feigned interest in returning but never followed up. Claire talks a good talk but Al never follows through. Over 100Sq M of 3 level patio and stairs remain unfinished. Special coping stones ordered but they never paid, despite Claires promises. That cost us another £700, not to mentioned all the slabs paid for but have never appeared. The site has been left like a tip! Now Dec '21.

We have had bad experiences in the past but Al, Claire and the team made us feel re-assured. Cant believe how hard the team worked. There were no hidden costs and we absolutely loved the finished job. The driveway looks amazing (best in the street) and we will definitely be giving them a call when we need more work done. Everything we asked them to do was done without any complaint from them. Cannot praise the team enough for going above and beyond expectations. Thank u to the whole team. Fidi & Stella

After the work was done promptly there were some cracked bricks and one of my slabs was cracked by the workers. The paving also had dips. After 6 months asking them to come and fix this they did replace a few bricks left. When I explained about the dipping they just fobbed me off saying they've done a great job. Very disappointed with this company and it's after care.

Al and his crew worked really hard, amazing work. They turned my basic garden to a piece of artwork, full landscape with pathway, decking area, patio of Indian Sandstone and a beautifully laid lawn. They are reliable, arriving on time, worked incredibly quickly and clean up afterwards. Their admin staff are really friendly, helpful and keeps us fully updated. Their charges are reasonable, flexible payment scheme with no hidden costs. I highly recommend them.

Back Garden fully landscaped with raised beds, fencing and quality sand stone patio paving, which included house line drainage. Plus a bespoke made doggy toilet area with artificial grass. Claire was easy to talk to and make arrangements with, she knows her business very well. Al and his lads worked hard and quickly and were flexible to the minor changes that came up. Very happy with the standard of work and price. Highly recommended!

My front garden needed landscaping and I asked 5 companies for a quote. Not only was Al's price the best, when he came round to look at the job he identified some issues with my design and made some creative suggestions that really showed he knew his stuff, plus he fixed a few other minor issues he identifed within the price. Al and his team arrived on time, worked incredibly quickly and with no mess. I was very pleased with the result and impressed with how well they handled the job. Definitely recommended

I had a 23sqm deck made of composite decking and supporting frame, glass balustrades installed, easyjoin put on the patio and the patio properly sealed (poorly installed by a previous tradesman) slates put down where the lawn was, a trellis installed. Al impressed me with his competence, flexibility, professionalism and attention to detail. Last minute changes to the plan were accomodated without complaint and he took time to answer queries and explain matters. Excellent quality work. Highly recommended.

Let me start by saying - I've had previous history with tradesmen being very awkward characters to deal with. Sorry I found this and its another x amount.. What a refreshing change the project has now been completed and i have had none of these shenanigans. The work carried out by Al and his team basically looks fantastic and any queries raised Al has been very understanding in resolving. If you want a hassle free professional job done then give Al the opportunity to impress as they've done with me

Turned up to view and quote. 3 weeks later still no quote received. Wasted my time. Why waste each other’s time? Can’t rate them on quality and value as no service received. Just not reliable.

We highly recommend Al Driveways & G.. The existing front garden area with an old driveway was transformed in a superb block paving driveway with a brick wall. The quote was affordable with no unexpected costs and the job was completed at the highest standard. Al was always ready to meet our further unplanned requests. The team were professional, hard workers, reliable and very polite. Claire in the office was always doing her best to find materials solutions. We definitively will use Al and his Team again.

Dealing with Al and Claire was a pleasure from the beginning. When they came round to quote they paid attention to what I wanted done and even give some helpful suggestions. Regarding the job itself they started when they said they would and the workmen were very courteous at all times. The job took longer than (I) anticipated but there were people busy all the time and there was no hint of asking for more money. I'm very happy with the final result and would have no hesitation in recommending them.

A highly professional job was designed and completed by AL Driveways & Gardens. The main work was completed quickly and efficiently by his team in just 2 weeks. The work included the removal of a 23 meter brick wall and installation of fencing, terracing, paving, steps, raised bedding and lawn. We are very happy with his work and his attention to detail. It is our pleasure to recommend this company.

I was concerned with a drainage issue on my patio and Al driveways came up with the safest proposal so I chose them even though it was a little above my budget and above two other quotes. However, i'm very glad I did so as the work was completed exactly to the time plan and to an excellent standard. The garden area has been transformed by their superb work! Many thanks Al and team!
