Trevor and his team have completely transformed the front of our home. It is simply stunning. I took his professional advice on the style and was not disappointed. They were on time every day, were always polite and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Trevor. Thank you so much for a beautiful driveway.

TP Sherwood & Sons we’re recommended to us to build our new driveway and we are so glad about that! Trevor and his team did an amazing job. They were prompt starting and remained with us until the job was complete. Our driveway was built for a fair price and the service they delivered was outstanding. They worked fast and like a military operation, through the rain and at times with five men on site. They were cheerful, straight forward to deal with, enthusiastic about their work. Most importantly they cared about the detail and doing a good job. Trevor and his team were a breath of fresh air to work with and we could not recommend them more highly. If they are in demand and you need to wait a while, then this is the reason why. - Plan ahead and book them in. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks Trevor and co from the Chambers Family, Southbourne:)

Complete Garden Transformation
Customer Service
Quality
Value
We had always had an idea of what we wanted with a complete garden transformation, with the lawn & Shrubs at the front of the house and block paving (very old and uneven) at the back, we basically wanted the block paving at the front and the garden area at the back. We had seen work that Trevor had completed for a neighbour and were very impressed with how quickly and professionally they had completed it. So with our “ideal” plans in hand we contacted Trevor, he arrived on time and went through each element of our plans with us providing professional & experienced advice. Trevor completed a detailed quote within 48 hours which was very competitive. Two weeks before the work commenced Trevor and additional tradesmen (for bespoke fencing) visited to go over the plans and to check if anything had changed and to confirm that he had all of the materials needed in stock so there would be no delays. Work started on the day and time promised and the whole team were respectful, polite and hardworking from the moment they arrived on site through to when they left at the end of the day, the site was left clear and tidy at the end of each day. The work was completed with no issues in the timescale quoted and we are over the moon with this transformation and the difference that it has made to us, being able to park when we get home from work and also being able to sit in a lovely tranquil space in the back garden - worth every penny!

Having recently been diagnosed with a disability my outside living space was unsafe for me so I desperately needed some help to change this situation.. I already had some idea of what I wanted but I couldn't believe the input received from Trevor in what they would be able to do … ! Trevor personally came to visit me to discuss my vision of re-purposing my rear garden. I was taken back at his thinking process to accommodate my disability ensuring I would get back full use of my garden. This even included using different shades of brickwork to assist with depth perception. Once we agreed on the design the quality and professionalism of the whole team ( it was like my own little ground force experience ) .. was exceptional. I am now able to use my garden and outside space as before with the added benefit of it looking like a show home … If only Trevor was able to able to sort out the English weather !! :) These guys are a must for anyone considering having some work done.. Already 3 of my friends who have seen the work are already in contact to get booked in.. Exceptional stuff and so glad I chose this company..

Fantastic garden patio and paths

Excellent first impression when Trev came to quote for job. On time, helpful suggestions and detailed quote given within 2 days. He was helpful when we altered our requirements. When he and his work team arrived and started the job I was even more impressed. We had over 53sq meters of patio and two long paths laid. They started the job promptly as promised on Monday morning, and finished as promised on Friday. It was wet and miserable, but they cheerfully worked through it. Work is finished to a very high standard. I am disabled and this work was to enable me better access and mobility around my garden. Trev understood my needs and any changes we asked for were never too much trouble for them. All the workers were lovely. Despite the weather making this a very messy job, when they left they had done such a good job of cleaning up after themselves that you would not have known work men had just been here. We are so pleased with the work. The work came in on time and on budget.

Trevor and his team have just completed our driveway. It is fantastic and looks beautiful. The service he provides is second to none. Everything was left beautifully tidy at the end of each day and the work was completed ahead of time. The attention to detail was remarkable, he even filled in the flower beds with soil and put up our house sign which had blown down in the storm. He is very competitively priced and I can’t recommend him highly enough.

We had witnessed Trevor and his team working at our neighbours across the road and had seen firsthand how professional they were, so didn’t hesitate in contacting them for a quote. All work was completed in the exact timescale and to the hour quoted including additional requests! We thought the levels in our garden would be a challenge but not for Trevor and his team, they have given us a patio and driveway to be proud of and have received nothing but compliments and ‘wows’! We were most impressed with Trevor and his teams punctuality and can do attitude in particular they way Trevor got stuck in with the work too. And would not hesitate to recommend and use them again in the future.

We found Trevor through work he’d completed for a relative. At all stages he was polite and understanding. He also ensured that our ageing water supply pipe was replaced before completing the block paving of our driveway. There was a slight modification of plans as we went along due to finding more clay than expected that needed to be removed and also avoiding the root system of an established shrub. The result is excellent and works perfectly for our needs. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend TP Sherwood.

Excellent block paver drive
Customer Service
Quality
Value
Trevor and his team installed a new block paver driveway. We were recommended by a neighbour. His quote was competitive and he recommended we look at many installations local to us, some were a few years old and others recently fitted. It was easy to assess the quality of his work from these inspections. On the big day his team arrived at 7.30am together with a digger and roller. During the process our rusty mains water iron pipe which crossed the driveway sprung a leak. Trevor quickly turned off the supply to the property, informed my wife and called a plumber. The repair was carried out in the dark and in pouring rain. Trevor attended until the repair was satisfactorily completed getting sopping wet in the process. The whole project took three days and the end result is a stunning new driveway. Very very pleased.

I found out about the company T.P. Sherwood on a walk around my local area. I came across several of the company's showpiece driveways and then, accidentally but fortunately, came across the owner himself. After a friendly conversation, he came a few days later to quote for the job. His price was competitive, the date he gave for the work was spot on and it took the three days that he had said it would. Trevor and his professional but friendly team converted a muddy parking area into an eye-catching driveway and a rough rubbled space into a beautifully paved patio linking the house to the garden. Apart from doing exactly what he said he would, Trevor also accommodated my last minute change of plan. He also arranged for his team to help with a couple of extra jobs, which included laying a couple of slabs for a local charity. In my experience there aren't many companies that go above and beyond to be the best they can be. This is clearly down to a hands-on leadership approach and a team who care about their status as professional tradesmen. Thank you all involved in T. P. Sherwood Landscaping

From the minute I phoned Trevor for a quote, he was nothing but efficient. Came promptly to do a site visit & quote delivered by hand the following day. Very competitive quote. We had a team of 7 here for two days in which time they completed a long drive & on discovering a leaking pipe, replaced that at no extra cost. They were the most efficient, hard working & courteous trade people that have ever done any work for us.

Replaced two sets of steps to raised patio area. Quite tricky brickwork on one of these due to fan-shape. Then laid tarmac and brick edging to patio. The agreed price and start time were stuck to (not all all suppliers do this). Trevor offered useful idea form improving the original design, too. Completed very satisfactorily - great job. Professional and hassle-free. They even washed the surrounding tarmac drive!

Excellent quote and job. Difficult block driveway laid despite different levels to cope with. Built conservatory step and laid adjoining patio which was blended smoothly into the drive. Pleasant, polite team and Mr Sherwood physically took the lead and supervised throughout. Whole job completed from scratch in a day and a half.

Had identical quotes for tarmac and block paving a deteriorating tarmac drive Block paving was selected and the job was completed in under two days. Small patio was also completed in this time. Mr Sherwood was present throughout and brought in extra men on day 2 (6 in total) in order to finish the job quickly. There was no lack of care despite the speed and all workers were polite and industrious. Full consultation was maintained throughout and my requests complied with. Helpful advice and suggestions were provided by Mr Sherwood from initial survey (2 visits) to job completion. Carefully tidied up after day 1 and at end of job. No problems to date with the work - heavy rain needed to check good drainage though.
