Excellent and professional. John was punctual and a hard worker and he tackled a job that other people had failed. He assured us he could do it and he delivered on his promise. Also a very friendly man and easy to get along with which is important when someone is working at your home for three or four days.


John undertook some groundworks for us in Orne 61, visiting twice to ensure the requirements were clear and provide a quote. Once agreed, John undertook the works, putting in underground conduit for electric and telephone cables beneath our drive. All works were completed on time and to a high standard. We would be happy to recommend.


Excellent , professional............10 out of 10.


Today John completed a "very complicated" Fosse Septic job for us... Cannot recommend enough on every level.... Thank you John
