New patio

“James completed our new patio to a high standard and we are very pleased with it. Prior to work commencing, he kept us well informed of lead times and the start date, even given all the supply problems due to Covid.

When the work started, he was always punctual and courteous and open to some minor modifications to the design that we wanted. He kept the site tidy and worked efficiently. We would thoroughly recommend him!”

Clay heave eruption in driveway

“James came out to have a look at the job very quickly, offering advice and proposing his solution to the problem. He quickly revised his plan without fuss as the problem worsened whilst waiting to start (caused by a delay on his previous job due to bad weather, and nearby utility services).

He kept me well-informed throughout, and above all, did a thorough, neat and tidy job. He was considerate about maintaining access for neighbours throughout, and finished ahead of schedule.”

Estate in Twyford, Winchester

“James Arnold has worked on our estate in Twyford, Winchester for the last year. We built two cottages and James was brought in to manage the groundworks for the garden, carparks and surrounding area. James is knowledgeable, honest and has been extremely helpful in all areas of his work. So much so that we are now employing James on an ongoing basis to run the groundworks of the main estate, drive and fields.

James has all the necessary heavy-duty equipment/machinery such as diggers/dumpers etc available which can be brought in at short notice as required. His skills are versatile; he has transformed our fencing, cleared large areas of overgrown brambles in the lower garden and has even replaced the stone balls on the piers at the entrance to the property.

James is personable, punctual and is proactive in spotting problems which need addressing in the grounds.

I would recommend his services to anyone.”
