Great patio
Customer Service
Sam and his team did an excellent job putting down a patio on a very messy and uneven back garden. Sam suggested several improvements to my original specification; all of which I am glad we implemented. But there was no 'hard sell'. Sam went with me to select the caramel sandstone. The team were punctual, friendly, and very hardworking. Sam is an impressive young organiser, and deserves every success. I also mentioned that I was thinking of a base for a shed. They suggested having it done while the digger was on site, and before the patio was laid. All done without fuss at a very fair price. I cannot recommend them enough, and would certainly use them again. I chose Ideal partly because they were Which? recommended, and I am glad I did so.

Beautiful new curved path
Customer Service
Ideal Building and Landscapes made a new curved path of blue brick pavers to replace the old straight one of concrete slabs. It has transformed my garden. The work was all done within a couple of days to a high professional standard. Thanks to Sam, Dom and Phil for translating my ideas into an actual path which is exactly what I wanted. They were £1000 cheaper than another quote I had! I have had work ( new shed and patio ) done by Ideal before and can thoroughly recommend them. They are nice to have around and good at understanding and interpreting what you want, and giving constructive suggestions. Thanks again Sam and the team.

Great Job
After being impressed by the work carried out by Sam’s team at my Daughter & Son in Law’s place 18 months or so ago, they were the ‘first port of call’ when we decided to have our patio area revamped. Sam came & discussed my plans and made recommendations. His team arrived just over 2 weeks ago, a good hardworking friendly bunch, who carried out the job to my total satisfaction and left us after 10 days with a great looking Patio. Well done all, I can highly recommend Sam and his Company.

New drive.
Customer Service
Sam's team dug out and laid a new block and tarmac drive for us - and what a transformation! Work was completed promptly and to the budget agreed. The finished job was improved by suggestions made to design by Sam and the team. They were all friendly and helpful but worked efficiently and effectively. They have done a great job and I would thoroughly recommend them.

Fencing, Patio, walls & Resin Drive
Customer Service
Excellent job carried out by Sam & his team. Jason the foreman came up with good ideas that we took on board to make the job look fantastic. We are extremely pleased with the outcome of our Back Garden and Resin Drive. We would highly recommend them. They were all hard working and very polite.

Excellent work from Ideal Paving & Landscaping
Customer Service
Excellent work undertaken by Sam and his team at Ideal Paving and Landscapes. They undertook a new asphalt and block paved front drive, new paving to one side of the house and reduced levels and sting up at the other side of the house, along with a new concrete base for a shed and a retaining wall. A job well done and at an affordable price. Can highly recommend them and I wouldn't hesitate in using them again.

Block paving
Customer Service
Block paved our driveway using Tegula blocks. Excellent job done by Sam and his team. Base was deep and good quality hardcore used. We are very pleased with the finished job and the drainage as driveway is on a steep slope towards the house. Very polite and friendly and reasonably priced for a quality job.

Quote required for replacing nine fencing panels,posts etc
I I telephoned this trader on 30 October and asked for a quote. He asked me to send him my details. I had to chase him on 3 November. He phoned me back on 3 November and said his father was in the area and could his father come round and quote. I agreed. His father turned up. Took notes. He promised to let me have a quote. It is now 12 days on and I have heard nothing. Is this really the sort of company that Which? recommends. I am so fed up of companies wasting my time, keeping me hanging on, promising quotes and not delivering. Unfortunately this company is not the only one that has let me down but I expected more of a Which? recommended company.
