We have been really impressed by the work of the whole team at Graveltech, who were originally recommended by friend of mine. Including how well the whole project was managed and administrated by Sophie and Verity – the paperwork was always prompt and correct. At the outset, Sophie spent time talking us through all the options and brought round samples to select from. The team that delivered the work had a really strong work ethic and were very polite. They also left the whole area neat and tidy afterwards, which is something that can’t be said for all workmen! That, in addition to the quality of the work, means we will certainly be recommending this company to others.

Sophie initially came to discuss the work needed and ensure that my requirements were clear. She also made several suggestions that I incorporated in the final design. When I received the initial quotation, Sophie made very helpful and practical suggestions to improve the design and reduce costs. Work started about 4 weeks later when dry weather was forecast. Mike, Paul and the team worked very quickly and professionally. The team stopped only for short lunch breaks. The work was completed within schedule, cost and to my complete satisfaction, including reseeding part of our lawn, removing an old hedge and coming back to check that I was completely satisfied. An excellent company that I trust and can recommend. I've never seen construction staff work so hard.

I had first contacted (Sophie) at Graveltech, following seeing one of the vehicles on the road. After researching the resin bonded product, it seemed ideal for my project. After two site visits, and viewing a couple of their previous projects I went ahead with the works. This was discussed in detail, samples were provided and even had a follow up visit to ensure full satisfaction. The men who carried out the works were very polite, courteous and hard working. The work was carried out on time with amazing results. I wouldn't have any hesitation in recommending this company to anyone. Thanks again, we are really happy with the end result.

Rhodi came and spent two hours with me discussing the very large project, putting in a new drive and new triple carport/garage. He advised me to do the project in a way that was completely opposite to what I thought would be correct. Nearly one year on I am still amazed at how it all looks, the driveway being the jewel in the crown, and I am a Builder! Quite happy for Rhod to bring anyone to come and view. Richard

Graveltech did a very professional job in removing our old drive and front garden which was a mix of old concrete and tarmac layers. They then installed a lovely resin bound surface, edged with black cobbles, also replacing an old door step and installing upright sleepers as boundary edging and a couple of flower beds to soften the look. All carried out extremely efficiently and quickly. We are very pleased.

On Rhodri’s initial inspection, he made some good suggestions regarding the layout of the new drive and recommended erecting a gate and fencing which would provide more privacy to our back garden. We were very impressed with the speed that the original drive was removed and the professionalism of the contractors. There were a couple of snagging items with the drive which were dealt with quickly. There was an issue with the gates, which had to be replaced and took longer to resolve but this has now been done to our satisfaction and was handled courteously by Mike. The new driveway and gates have definitely enhanced our property.

After requesting quotes from a number of driveway tradesman/ companies (some of which were not professional enough to provide us a quote or decline the work, after their visit), our neighbour recommended Graveltech. Graveltech was courteous from the start with Mike arranging his first visit for a quote at an unusually early hour to cater to our urgency. The quote was very reasonable and work was carried out on time without any complications or delays. We were kept fully informed of the process and the time frames. They worked self-sufficiently without any intrusion. Any mess was taken away at the end of each day and we had a clean driveway that was completed even before the time quoted. No fuss or ugly surprises. Our driveway looks lovely and tidy and we had a smooth experience getting it.

The work began and the team were quick, conscientious and clearly skilled. We had a resin-bound driveway with cobble border and bushes planted as well as the creation of a new wall and step. The job took around a week and was finished to a very high standard. The team caused no mess and did a great job cleaning up after themselves.

After looking at 16 potential companies, and a lot of site visits we picked GravelTech. The two main reasons were: 1. Rhod was really experienced, listened to our requirements and sought to understand what we were trying to achieve rather than give us a quote for what we had asked for 2. Every other potential supplier quoted us on our brief. Rhod challenged us as to whether we had thought it through and then came up with a completely different design which we loved and eventually implemented almost exactly as he had sketched it in the first meeting. Whilst not the cheapest, Rhod and Mike convinced us that they had the experience and attitude that we could have confidence in placing our trust in them to deliver as per their promises. The team they assembled were extremely hard working, very polite and considerate. They delivered on time and on budget and when we wanted to make minor changes (once we had seen it in real life rather than paper) they were always accommodating. The work they did include extensive landscaping, putting in borders retained by wooden sleepers, building a curved patio, laying an artificial turf lawn, laying a resin driveway, some minor brickwork and creating flower beds. I would not hesitate to recommend GravelTech to you.

It was a new installation for a 180m₂ driveway – tarmac with natural gravel rolled into it, new fence on sleepers and a new gate. The existing drive was an eyesore – a very poor existing tarmac drive with holes and undulations, bordered by ugly land and trees with huge variances in height levels - I had removed 8 trees before speaking to Rhod So Rhod visited the site and came up with some creative ideas and options that we would never have thought of. Mike ran the project with a team of incredibly hard working and talented guys. The quality of workmanship was remarkable and the project just ran like clockwork. They first had to remove around 30+ tonnes of existing driveway debris, tree stumps and old patio. Then it all just came together - the cobbles at the gate entrance and around the curved perimeter make it look very special indeed. We have had so many neighbours stopping by to commend us on the work – it’s a real showstopper now – not an eyesore at all! And it’s level now too! Graveltech was not the cheapest quote. But after meeting Rhod, understanding Graveltech’s approach, quality of materials, ideas etc - I got a true sense of honesty, care and craftsmanship. Graveltech are in another league. It’s transformed the front of our house and I love it. It’s gone from letting the street down to being the stand-out house! Cheers for all the hard work guys. I would recommend Graveltech no-one else comes close

We have recently finished a long extension project and the driveway was the last piece in the jigsaw to finish off the house. Graveltech have done an amazing job! Rhodri made several suggestions to alter the shape of the lawns slightly so that the new bonded resin finish ran seamlessly to the front door following some much visually cleaner curves than we had before. We added further work during the job to build us a 'curved', rising, front entrance wall to the drive from Oak sleepers - and Mike didn't blink - finishing this superbly as well. Graveltech levelled the drive, the lawns either side of it, re-turfed them and planted shrubs and greenery in all the new beds that they suggested, and created. We were away when the final layer of resin bonded gravel was laid - and the smiles on our faces as we arrived home to such an amazing change to the front of the house (and the side path!) said it all. Great job gents, thank you very much. I also hear that my neighbour has now asked for a quote from you as he said to me "I feel as though I'm letting the road down now I've seen yours!". I have no hesitation in recommending Graveltech as a business, and the team who worked so industriously and efficiently by the half dozen when on site, .... and the price was competitive to boot.

Rhodri and Mike of Graveltech did a resin bound surfacing of large drive. I'm very happy with the work, it was spot on budget and we have had no problems to speak of at all.

We had our existing patio, side paths and driveway completely removed. A common level found around the outside of the property after a significant amout of excavation. A different shape of drive and patio installed using limestone for the patio and resin bonded gravel to for the drive. The resin was also used to creat side paths. It was stressless. My father, being an engineer checked, and was incredibly impressed with what they had been able to achieve.

I recommend this first-class company unreservedly. They did a fantastic job on our patio and garden, from design to advice on planting. Rhodri spent a lot of time with us discussing options and designs for our landscaping and he is very creative. He showed some sketches to us and let us choose our own ideas. He is very easy to relate to, never pushy and always responsive. He takes a personal interest and shows professional pride in the execution of the work and the detail. The project was completed on time and on budget; the team were very professional, in spite of lousy winter weather. It's clear the company recruit only the best operatives. Rhodri was very good at sourcing materials, such as a fountain, and it was not any trouble to sort out lighting and electrics. The complete job was both promised -and delivered, without fuss or quibble. I would have no hesitation recommending them or using them personally again. To sum up, if you want professionals for a garden or driveway, call on Graveltech and ask for Rhodri.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Graveltech. We have actually used them twice - once to re-design our back garden and lay a patio and secondly to put up a long back garden fence. They came up with some great ideas (things we hadn't even thought about) and then worked tirelessly to get the jobs done. One of the best things was that you hardly knew they were there and all of a sudden your garden is transformed. Overall a fantastic service. G Taylor

I recently used Graveltech for my resin bond driveway and was delighted with the work that they did and their level of customer service. Rhod replied quickly to my enquiry and arrived to do a consultation and had some great ideas. When he sent the quote over I sent it to my brother in law who runs a landscaping business and he couldn't fault the work that was being suggested, the actual way the driveway was being laid or the price. When the work started the guys were very hard working and Mike the site manager was superb and answered any questions I had. GravelTech are a quality company who I would highly recommend.

We had other companies quote for us but from the moment Rhod at Graveltech came to see us we wanted his company to do the work and the price we were given was the most competitive too. The work undertaken was done with care and precision with nothing being too much when we wanted to do minor changes.The team were efficient and professional and a pleasure to have around. We have had no end of comments from neighbours, friends and family at how great it looks. We would have no hesitation in recommending Graveltech if you want something that is exceptional workmanship and stands out from the rest.

We had always admired our neighbour’s driveway and they strongly recommended Graveltech. Rhodri spent a lot of time with us discussing options and designs for our drive and garden. He takes a personal interest and shows professional pride in delivering a beautiful final design. The work was completed on time, on budget and the team were polite, on time and tidy always. I would have no hesitation in recommending Graveltech for any landscape or driveway solutions.

I contacted Graveltech as other traders had failed to respond satisfactorily. Rhodri suggested work they had done in our area which we viewed. He attended the site and made several helpful suggestions in addition to what was initially required. All aspects of the process were handled quickly and efficiently and the 4 workers who did the work operated very quickly and professionally. The site was left clean and tidy and we are delighted with the results. We would definitely recommend Graveltech.

I recently used Graveltech for my driveway. I had a combination of resin bound and sandstone. I asked a few local contractors but Rhodri was the only one that gave me some great ideas. I was originally going to have straight boring lines but he advised I introduce curves and also leave room for plants to make a feature. If you are looking for someone to inspire you and give suggestions then Rhodri is your man. In terms of the actual work they did, the finish was excellent. The workers (approx. 4 people) were clean, polite and very quick. I am so pleased with the end result. Also worth noting that some contractors said it was fine to resin over my old cracked concrete but Rhodri was adamant we needed to get rid of the concrete and install type 1 as this was the safest solution. I would recommend Graveltech to anyone that's needs their driveway renovated.

I wanted something different and first saw stone bonding some years ago but a quotation from another contractor at the time seemed high. I recently came across Graveltech’s website. I saw the fact that they are a “Which?” recommended contractor as a plus. Graveltech worked promptly, efficiently and at a reasonable cost. Clearly they take pride in their work, and made a number of helpful suggestions which improved upon my original ideas. My drive was liable to flood but porous stone bonding has completely eliminated that problem. When there is a deluge I no longer have to sweep away mud and water. The new drive has a bright, smooth finish. It has been much admired by visitors and has enlarged the space for parking and turning cars. The ‘kerb appeal’ itself has been significantly been lifted, giving the house itself an appearance of being new.

We instructed Graveltech in August 2011 to undertake a new drive and landscaping of our garden. The service provided was excellent, with innovative ideas being given at the design stage which provided a fantastic finished product. We choose bonded gravel for the driveway which looks great and is very hard wearing along with artificial grass which has provided a great solution for a small shaded area of garden and allows a clean and safe kids play area. The workmen were highly professional and very friendly causing minimal disruption through the works period. All in all we were highly impressed with the level of service, design ideas and overall price which has resulted in an exceptionally finished driveway and garden – our neighbours are very jealous! Kind regards Barry and Nicola Coltrini

During my initial meeting with Rhodhri we discussed the different options we had for our driveway. He had a good appreciation of what he could do for are budget and came up with some excellent ideas. Once we chose the options he was quick to give a detailed price breakdown with installation dates. I am pleased to say he met all dates as promised and there was no issues with the budget. I am really pleased with the job that he and his team done and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.

I discovered Graveltech when I was browsing for driveways on the Internet. I needed a porous driveway so was drawn towards the resin bound surface solution. I made contact with the Sales Director Rhodri Davies. He sent me addresses where Graveltech had installed resin bound driveways recently. I visited most addresses and without exception, customers were happy with the work and praised the company for their friendly and professional approach. I sketched out my ideas and discussed them with Rhodri on his first visit. With his vast experience of landscaping, he could see ways to enhance the appearance of the driveway. It was useful to have those ideas to mull over. When the final plan was agreed, he measured up and emailed me a price. It fell between two other quotes but I chose Graveltech because of the enthusiastic reports I had received from previous customers and of the constructive ideas proposed by Rhodri. I had a couple of issues when the site was being prepared but these were quickly and efficiently resolved to my satisfaction by Mike Peacock the Operations Director. I found the members of the workforce friendly and hard working. All clearly took a pride in their work. I am now the proud owner of a smart driveway which gets admiring glances by passers-by and I am looking forward to my first chance to recommend Graveltech to potential customers in person! I have no hesitation in recommending Graveltech as a Which? Trusted Trader.

I contracted with Graveltech to re-landscape my garden including re-laying lawns, reshaping beds and laying pathways. I am very happy with the results. The quote they gave was competitive and the work was completed within the estimated timescales and the team were efficient and always courteous. I would use them again and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

In the summer of 2014 we had Graveltec install our new driveway. From our first meeting to discuss our requirements to the final laying of the driveway everything went to plan. They provided a very professional and efficient service and the team were hard working, conscientously, courteous and accommodating to our wishes. We would have no hesitatation in recommending them.
