Excellent service from initial quote through to job completion. CW Stanley were extremely helpful and accommodating when we had to postpone the initial installation date due to awaiting on Openreach to complete their Job. The driveway was completed to an extremely high standard and the team were professional, polite, cheerful, tidy and hard working throughout and the quality of the work is outstanding. It was a pleasure to have them tarmacing the drive for us and we are extremely pleased with the finished result. We highly recommend CW Stanley .

Excellent work during the laying of the driveway. Advice and guidance from Aaron was most helpful in making decisions on materials and design. The project was completed in two days with a great team of six craftsmen. The finished driveway looks terrific and has received much praise from neighbours. In other words we are very pleased the finished result. A big thank you to all concerned.

It may not have been their biggest commission, but to us it was! Thank you for an exceptionally beautiful job, now our new base just needs a summer house (though it will be a shame to cover up this beautiful piece of block paving). Our special thanks go to Tim & Charlie, who were polite, friendly, professional & explained every step of the job to us. Each night they tidied & cleaned up, so that you would never know they had been. Would have no hesitation in recommending CW Stanley for your project and would not hesitate to have them back for any future garden projects we undertake.

From my first meeting with Aaron to discuss the project through to completion, I knew I was dealing with a reliable, professional company. The quotation included a full description of works to be undertaken, so I was confident the company knew what it was doing. My confidence was not misplaced and the team (the A-Team!) completed the job of resurfacing my patio with resin bound stone in accordance with the schedule and to a very high standard. They also kept my neighbours informed, requesting permission to park their vehicles etc, which earned them and myself high kudos. I couldn't be happier.

This is a family firm run by Colin Stanley. Right from the start I was impressed by the way they interpreted my requirements, made suggestions and priced accordingly. Unfortunately, the lockdown then intervened but Colin kept us up to date with what he was doing. Once lockdown eased we agreed on a new programme and work started on time. All the guys involved have been very courteous and polite. The standard of workmanship has been of the highest order and the job was finished on time and to budget. We cannot praise this firm too highly and would not hesitate to recommend.

I very rarely write reviews, but on this occasion, I am more than happy to do so. In my view, there are four types of companies - (1) bad (2) OK (3) good (4) outstanding. This company easily fits into category (4). The work involved extensive groundwork in preparation for the laying of about 90m2 Tegula Drivesett block paviors. The work was completed on time and to the agreed budget. As soon as I met Colin Stanley I knew that his company would be awarded the contract. He was agreeable, honest, helpful, and very knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble. This firm comes highly recommended.

Wow! Amazing work! The team of 6 arrived promptly at 08:30 today (Christmas Eve) and were friendly and helpful and started work straight away on our tarmac drive. They had completed the first layer in no time and the second layer went on straight after that, leaving an immaculate finish. The work was complete by 11:30 by which time they had cleared up and packed their vans. What a professional job from start to finish! Thank you so much Colin and Merry Christmas!

The team was very professional, polite, organised and hard working. They laid asphalt on our driveway and front garden (large area) and ibstalled fences on either side. They discussed with us all the available options, answered all our questions and double checked the final details before the work started. They listened to all our requests and met them, always striving to provide the best service possible. They were by far the best team we employed for the landscaping work at our house. We are very pleased with the high quality work they carried out and recommend them strongly.
