From start to finish David was nothing other than excellent. he turned up on the evening of my job request and offered a quick and VERY reasonable quote. David started the work within days as requested and had finished it far quicker than expected. his craftsmanship is second to none, we are over the moon with the job David has done for us and would recommend him over anybody else! the work is superb, 100% trustworthy. cleaning up at the end of every day David really did go above and beyond

Drainage Specialist

David is an extremely polite and diligent workman. Contact was made quickly, we knew exactly what was being done and when. He turned up exactly when he said he would, and on completion of the work the area was left spotless. Will more than likely have him to do more work.

David responded quickly to the initial post and we agreed details of the project very quickly. Everything agreed was delivered on time and on budget. Excellent design and craftsmanship was evident in the fencing provided and we are very satisfied with the end product. It was a pleasure to have David working at our home, he is a lovely man and takes real pride in his work, keen to check progress versus expectations all along the way. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend David and will certainly call on him again

What is the difference between VAT and non VAT registered builders? Are both legitimate?

    VAT registration is not a measure of legitimacy. Many businesses are organised to remain below the VAT threshold to maintain lower prices for their customers. Ratings and comments on Rated People are mostly a better guide to legitimacy in my opinion.

I have planted new hedging, how often do i need to water until established ?
  • David Roe's Answer

    I recomend a good soak once or twice a week. Ignore rainfall. Water from a good soak will drain down into the soil and the roots will grow down after it. If it is watered more often the roots are not stimulated to grow. From the English Gardener.
