Excavate section of garden to extend existing block paved driveway.
Richard and his team turned up on day one and worked extremely hard throughout the job without loosing their smiles. This wasn't a simple job due to the undulation in the existing drive to match the new drive into. There was a large portion of excavation to tackle along with the removal of a tree root with no real access for mechanical equipment. Whilst there were some unexpected events that extended the original time estimated to complete the works Richard always kept us informed on a daily basis as to what the next phase was, when it would be done, and who would be on site. For all Richard is relatively young in years, he is a mature tradesman who takes a great deal of pride in his work. The finished job was excellent and blended very well into the existing drive. Once it is weathered you would think it was part of the original job. These guys are not only good tradesmen, but nice people as well, deserving of coffee and cakes.

Dig out lawn in back garden and replace with decorative different size slate stone and replace part grass with turf.
Although the job started a couple of days later than expected Richard and his team kept us informed about the delay and expected start date. Once they began working they came in and got on with the job. They were very professional and at the end of each day they cleaned up and washed the drive area to keep the mess down to a minimum. Once the job was complete we were very happy with the end result. We explained what we were looking for and they gave us exactly that! I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard and RL Groundworks to anyone who was interested in changing their garden.

To dig out the beds and pave a patio, a shed base and a base for our garden swing.​

Richard called and arranged to call to provide an estimate. He arrived promptly, was very polite, pleasant and knowledgeable. He gave us an estimate there and then having first priced the materials he needed, offering a range of options. He said he would send the estimate in writing at the start of the following week, which he did and when I rang to arrange the work he gave me firm dates. He called a few days before attending to do the job to ensure it was still okay to go ahead. He and his men arrived promptly on the first of the two days planned, set to quickly and worked hard all day. They arrived the following day early and again worked all day to complete the work. They cleaned up the whole area after finishing the work, even neighbours made comment that they were very clean workers. I would definitely use the company again.

To change my front garden into a driveway, with suitable disabled access to my door.
From initial quote to completion RL groundwork's were outstanding. They advised me of the best possible solution for changing my front garden into a driveway, including drainage that I hadn't even considered. They talked me through the process, the pricing and showed relevant qualifications and backgrounds. They always arrived on time, if not early, and came to say when they were finished for the day what they had done and what the next course of action would be. They tidy up as they go and are very professional. I found Richard and his team, genuine likeable lads. The finished driveway is 100 times better then what I had originally planned for I have had lots of comments on it. I can not recommend these highly enough. I have already planned on getting my yard done.
