New front garden

Rob recently undertook the job of blockpaving our driveway and landscaping the front garden. He and Phil followed all instructions and we are delighted with the final result. It has been admired by many.

Thanks for the lovely review!

Excellent job...

Asked Robert to clear some conifers, put up a fence and create a patio area. What a lovely job was done! We could not be happier with end result, and Robert ensured work was done to a high standard and the clear up was perfect. Reasonably priced too, would highly recommend.

Brilliant Job

Having seen first hand the result of Rob's work on several neighbours properties I had no hesitation in asking him to do some work for us. I asked him to lay a new driveway and garden landscaping to the front (to my design) and also to repair an unsightly patio to the rear.Rob suggested various alternatives for drive brickwork that were better than I had first thought of and suffice to say the result of both front and back is fantastic. We are delighted with the result and have had so many comments on how good it looks.Rob does a quality, fantastic job (he loves his tea builder style, by the way!) and we have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone - we have already passed his details onto several neighbours.Many Thanks for a great job Rob - Brian & Lyn

Decking extraction!

Robert has turned a pipe dream into reality, replacing a large and unsightly area of decking with a wonderful patio, retaining wall for the flower bed and freshly laid turf.He understood exactly what we were hoping to achieve from the off and his skill and expertise are clear to see in the finished product.Thank you for all your hard work.

Perfect Garden Eaton Socon

I am not a gardener but love having a garden. I asked Rob to design and build me a space that I can use without feeling guilty that I don't have any desire to be a gardener. And he did - in spades (excuse the pun). New fence, bark and shale, path, shed and plant removal - it is so beautiful I nearly cried when I saw the finished space. It's perfect, absolutely perfect. So if you need anything doing in your garden I can't recommend Rob enough - just make sure he can get to the tea and biscuits!Jenny - Eaton Socon

Thanks for the glowing review Jenny, so happy you're so pleased with it. Tea and biscuits are garden landscaper fuel! Haha

Driveway

Robert totally transformed our front garden by replacing our driveway and building a step to the front door; his workmanship is beyond fault; he takes an obvious pride in his work and it shows. We have had everyone from neighbours to the postman complement the drive and say how good it looks - we are delighted with it - many thanks Robert

Great stuff, glad you're so pleased with it Theresa!

Nice garden.

Rob came and worked on our front and back gardens for 2 weeks in which he has totally transformed them and made our house feel much more like a home. He followed our instructions to the letter and made some suggestions on how to enhance our plans which we took on board. We are very pleased with the final result.

Very pleased!

Rob with the help of his son Ryan laid us a block paving driveway with a sweeping path. They worked so hard through the hottest days of the year and the quality of the work is very high!
Lots of our neighbours have commented on how good the front garden now looks! I have enjoyed planting up the flower boarders and look forward to seeing the results next spring!
We would recommend Rob to anyone, a great guy who loves his tea and does a brilliant job!

Haha I certainly do like my tea! Thanks for the glowing review Sharon and Adrian - I also look forward to seeing all the plants established next year!

Stunning patio

We are very pleased with our large Indian sandstone patio that Rob with his son Ryan did for us. It has been admired by many friends and family. We would certainly highly recommend them. Rob is passionate about his work, he is a skilled and. Does a thorough job. Friendly, and very hard working, hardly stops , loves his cuppa and a chat, easy to have around.

Great job!

Rob came recommended to us to undertake the job of block paving our driveway and he absolutely lived up to that recommendation. We are delighted with the final result and the drive has already been much admired by friends and family. He takes a genuine pride in doing a first rate job with no short cuts. Rob worked with his son Ryan on our drive. Both were great blokes, who also loved a steady flow of tea and a good chat every now and then to keep them going. We would absolutely recommend Rob if you're considering having your driveway block paved. Many thanks Rob (and Ryan)!

Thanks for the 5 star review Nigel and Mavis, glad you're so pleased with your block paved driveway!

Another perfect job!

Having engaged Rob!s services before, we had no hesitation in using him again and asking him to extend our patio. As we expected would be the case, he did a fantastic job and we are delighted with the end result. Thanks again Rob, you are a true craftsman.Ron and Sharon

Thanks Ron and Sharon, happy you're pleased!

Front garden and drive

Rob was recommended to us by our neighbour so we had seen the quality of his work and we were not disappointed. We are extremely pleased with the work done and have several people stop and say how good it all looks, we would have no hesitation in recommending Rob to family, friends or anyone else who asks for his details. We liked the fact that he keeps you informed what he is doing, gives good advise and takes pride in his work, thanks Rob and we will definitely use you again for any work in the future.

Thanks for the glowing review Kevin and Anne, really pleased you're so happy with it and that the neighbours are all commenting so positively! Thanks, Rob

I used Robert for the first time recently and he did a fantastic job. So good that gave him some numbers of family and friends to contact. His work ethic was excellent as he hardly stopped from the moment he arrived.I can definitely recommend him - nice bloke too

Thanks for the glowing review Alan. Always nice to get compliments on my work and my character too! Cheers

A job well done....

Rob relayed my patio in 2012. It was a long and complicated job requiring considerable ground works. Not only was it a pleasure to have him around the finished job was excellent. Four years on and it still looks as good as new.

Thank you for your review Rob! Pleased you're just as happy with it now as the day it was laid

Another great job

After completing an excellent job some time ago we decided we also needed the remainder of the path running through our garden done to the same excellent standard and asked Robert back for a second time - we did not even bother asking other companies for a quote as we knew we wanted him to do it. Thank you Rob for another beautifully done job.

Thank you Hetty and Rudi for a lovely review! Honoured to be asked back by you both for a second time and I'm pleased you're both so happy with the work.

Garden fence replacement

Having spotted Rob's website and reviews in a copy of 'The Villager' magazine, we requested a visit for a quotation. Rob was very prompt in getting back to us, and although it was relatively small job, he was very understanding of our needs, including those of the garden wildlife! The work was completed to a very high standard of professionalism, and has transformed the views of our back garden. Suffice, we can thorougly recommend him to others who need to either replace or transform their gardens.Ian & LindaGodmanchester.

The perfect patio

Rob has restored our patio to look brand new. The jointing between the stones was cracked and many stones lose due to poor workmanship by the original contractor. Now it looks as if it has just been laid.The standard of his work is excellent, he is reliable and conscientious. We will most certainly be calling on his services in the future.

We have no hesitation in recommending his work. He is a true craftsman.

Glad you're pleased with the result Alison and Roger. It's a shame the original contractor did such a poor job but I'm happy we got it looking as good as it should for you!

New fence panels & shed base

We're really pleased with the results. Rob was friendly and happy to give us advice. He was reliable, cost effective, hard working & courteous. We will definitely use him again & recommend him to friends.

Thanks for the review Rebecca and the referrals! Glad you're pleased with the result!

Another perfect job!

Having previously engaged Rob's services in 2013, I knew he was the man for me when I wanted to update my front garden 18 months later. As expected, he completed the work to the highest standards and transformed the look of my garden which has already received several compliments from neighbours and passers by - and that's on the first day of completing the work! In addition to the block paving and landscaping, he has replaced my lawn and it looks superb! Thanks Rob, another excellent job and a wholly satisfied customer.!! If you are looking for an expert to transform your garden, look no further than Rob - you won't be disappointed!!!!

Great stuff, thanks for the review David and Theresa! Glad to hear you've had so many compliments on it and you're pleased with it. Thanks, Rob

Beautiful patio

Beautiful patio.
Robert combined his expert skill, knowledge and with an aesthetic eye took our demanding vision of a curved patio and made it work. It was a tricky series of curves that needed to blend together and make various shaped flower beds. Robert was great fun and easy to have around. He came very well recommended which we are happy to concur as he did a brilliant job.
Graham of Buckden

Thanks for the glowing review Graham, it was a pleasure to work for you! Cheers, Robert

Excellent work!

Rob built a beautiful path and circular patio in our garden. He was very helpful with his advice and the end result speak for itself.
He is very professional and a genuinely nice person, a pleasure to have around. Many thanks, Rob!

Hi Hetty and Rudi; a big "thank you" for your glowing review! You were both a pleasure to work with, and I'm over the moon that you're so pleased with the end result. Take care. Robert Hughes

Great result !

Rob came and worked on our front and back gardens for 2 weeks in which he has totally transformed them and made our house feel much more like a home. He followed our instructions to the letter and made some suggestions on how to enhance our plans which we took on board. We are very pleased with the final result.

Thanks for the great review Stuart and Gill, I really appreciate it. Glad you're both very pleased with the result!

Amazing!

Rob has just completed a new drive and several paths and patios for us and the results are brilliant. We already had a very established garden, full of plants and trees. Rob helped us design a new garden that incorporated the existing planting with a sunken circular patio plus new pathways and other patio areas. At the front of the house Rob has built us a new drive which incorporates areas that were previously planted plus the area slopes in several directions. We could not be more pleased with the results. Rob is a true craftsman and his attention to detail is second to none. Rob also advised us on the materials that are available and together we have selected those that really enhance our home and garden. Throughout the whole process Rob has been totally reliable, to the point that we left him our house keys whilst we were on holiday. During the work, the site was always left very tidy overnight and Rob was very considerate of our neighbours who access their property over a shared drive. Rob's work is faultless and I'd have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for the highest quality finish.

Thanks Simon and Louise for your glowing referral 🙂 Glad you're so pleased with it!

Robert is a craftsman of the first order

Rob did the hard landscaping for our new garden back in 2012. 2 years on and it still looks stunning. His work was to the highest standards under difficult conditions.

I've just called him back to do further work to our side and front gardens.

A craftsman of the first order - no hesitation in recommending him.

Thanks Neil and Cathy, really appreciate the feedback and I look forward to working with you again soon.

An excellent driveway

Robert produced for us a driveway which has been much admired by all our visitors for its high quality of workmanship.

We were very impressed and pleased with the result of his work - so pleased we asked him back to do some more!

Glad to hear you're both pleased with the driveway and other work! Thanks for the recommendation!

Cheers,

Robert Hughes

A great new drive

Rob rebuilt our drive during the appalling weather in February and did a brilliant job. We are so pleased with the quality of his workmanship and his reasonable cost. We will definitely invite him to undertake further works for us in the future and have no hesitation in recommending Rob to others.

My perfect garden

When I moved into my bungalow, the garden was overgrown, a mess and needed a complete overhaul. Rob came to see me and told me what he could do and told me he could give it some much needed TLC. He set about his work and completely transformed my garden which is now looking fantastic. I couldn't have asked for more - I am so pleased with the new look. It will be my pleasure to recommend his skills to anyone wanting a garden makeover.

Jean from Little Paxton

Excellent service, keen eye for detail - Rob really knows his stuff

The whole process from my initial request for a qoute, acceptance thereof and the completion of the job couldn't have been handled any better or indeed, faster. Rob is a true master of his trade and the quality of his work outstanding. Add to this the competitive pricing for his services and the obvious pride he takes in his work, I would have no hesitation in recommending Rob to anyone. To say we are delighted with our new drive would be an understatement. Thanks again Rob - it was a pleasure to engage your services!
