A first class job! Right from our initial meeting with Steven we had full confidence that he would provide us with a fantastic job, and we were not disappointed. Steven and Luke worked diligently to give us a new rear garden patio, even working through very heavy rain and their care and attention to detail was amazing. In nearly 50 years working in construction I have seen many fine examples of construction and the work they carried out for us is another excellent example. We have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Garden First. Top marks - just a shame we can't give you more. Derek & Aileen Smith

Wonderful transformation by Garden First, thanks to Steve, Luke, and Connor. We moved into a new build with a sloping back garden and wanted the area splitting into two levels. Steve provided great ideas, advice and professionalism from the moment he came to tender for the work. The team have built us a fantastic sandstone patio, retaining wall, and beautifully level lawn. They also built a shed base, reset our rear fence and repositioned the side fence and gate. Everything has been completed to a very high standard. Nothing phased Steve and Luke, their experience shone through and they were able to work round all the issues thrown up each day. It was a pleasure to employ them and we highly recommend them.

Brilliant Job. We had Steve and Luke from Garden First working on our new patio for almost 3 weeks and the finished job really does surpass our expectations. They are not only nice guys but very competent and professional in every way and it is a pleasure to recommend them. They are always well booked up so be prepared to wait but the result will be well worth it. I had extensive paving put down at the rear and side of my house. I had seen pictures of the same paving put down at the Chelsea Flower Show (where standards are high) and thought we must have the same. Steve and Luke produced BETTER. Many thanks guys, Malcolm & Marion Morpeth

This is now the third project that Steve, Luke and Tim of Garden First have completed for us and, as usual, it's another first rate job. As well as doing an excellent job, they are: very easy to deal with; don't require any up-front payments; clean up every night and are very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend Garden First to anyone thinking of using their services.

Steve and his team did an excellent job creating a new pathway in our back garden. The job was organize to take place while we were away on holiday to make things as easy as possible as we have 2 dogs. On returning from holiday we were amazed at the end result and the place was immaculate. I would highly recommend Garden First to anyone thinking of undertaking any landscape/pathway projects as they were: on time, on budget and did an excellent job. What else could you ask for?
