Testimonials - GL Landscaping & Ground Works

"We hired Gary based on his website and testimonials from previous customers and we couldn’t have made a better choice. From the offset, Gary understood exactly what we were looking to achieve and helped us to visualise the eventual outcome. He had to tie in a new driveway, doorstep, path and patio area and the results have more than exceeded our expectations. Gary is honest, upfront about any additional costs, reliable and completely trustworthy. He is extremely approachable and patient, when faced with questions and suggestions from us at many times throughout the process. He takes a huge pride in his work and his attention to detail is excellent. We will have no hesitation in using him again and will happily recommend him to our family and friends (and the strangers who stop to admire our new garden!)"


"We highly recommend Gary. He did a fantastic job on our patio. He was efficient, always kept you informed and suggested changes for the better which we went with and couldn't be happier. We get so many compliments and recommend Gary everytime."

Thank you

"Gary undertook a major re-do of our front garden and driveway which involved extensive ground clearing works as well as levelling, building a retaining wall, fencing using sleepers, re-laying lock-block, laying granite edging and then filling with gravel and pebbles.  He worked tirelessly through pretty rough weather on a very exposed site by the sea. He suggested and sourced a range of materials that would work well together and consulted us all through the project, working to time and budget. We were so happy with the end result (which has been much admired) and his work ethic, that we had him back again to lift and re-do our raised terrace at another side of the house, hence we would have no hesitation in recommending him."

"Gary Low Landscaping refurbished the front of our house. The work entailed, removal of existing concrete drive, lock blocking the drive and parking area, slabbing out the porch area, edging out the garden area, laying gravel, and refurbishing the front wall.

Gary carried out the work to a very high standard in a professional manner. He offered guidance and advice in a knowledgeable and thoughtful way, and it was gratefully received.

The worksite was kept clean, tidy and safe at all times.

The overall effect is stunning and has been greatly admired by many. It has enhanced the front area of the house enormously."

"Gary has carried out extensive patio, path and driveway works at our house over the past couple of years, all finished to the highest standard. The professional approach to the work and attention to detail whilst remaining in agreed timescales and budgets has been exemplary and I cannot recommend Gary highly enough for similar work.

He has transformed the garden beyond our expectations."

"I commissioned Gary Low to lay a driveway and paths at my house. He began and completed the job within the promised time-scale, liaised with me throughout the work regarding any issues that arose, and responded to these effectively. The work was carried out to a high standard of finish and has transformed the garden. I am happy to recommend him for high quality work carried out reliably and thoughtfully.

You be interested to know that one of the main reasons I approached you initially, was because I liked your web site. It works quite well, the appearance is effective for your line of work and it conveys a sense of professionalism."

Hello Gary,

We would like to thank you for the transformation you made to our drive. The kerb edging and new gravel has made a real difference. The new planting area matches the existing one perfectly.

From start-to-finish your work was of a very high standard, very competitively priced, and we would not hesitate to use your services again, or recommend you to others.

Thanks again for a very good job.

Gary Low Landscaping did an excellent job installing the driveway with mono block. The work carried out was to break out all existing concrete and dispose of and install mono block driveway and kerbing.

All material supplied was of the highest quality and the work done was fully guaranteed and of a very high standard at a very reasonable cost and within the time limited quoted.

I have no hesitation recommending Gary Low to any prospective customer. He is a very hard working and honest person.

I really want to thank you so much for the amazing transformation, you have made to my garden. The 6 feet fence that you built from scratch, could I am sure withstand the worst weather and highest winds.

You were totally professional the whole of the time and I felt totally confident that the outcome would look great. However, the finished job was even beyond what I thought could be achieved considering the awful condition of my original garden when started.

I would highly recommend you, superb job Gary.

Hi Gary,

I would like to re-affirm how happy we were with the patio and the new lawn that you did for us, not only was the finished result excellent but the way you carried out the work was of the highest quality. In terms of punctuality and tidiness we were very impressed and would be delighted to pass your details on to anyone who is looking for any similar work to be carried out.

In fact we were so delighted with your work we got you lay a patio at our son's house and you re-laid the slabs on our daughter's driveway, both excellent jobs,

Thank you for the excellent jobs you have done for us.

I've just returned from working overseas and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent job you made of the patio and walls at my place.

Apart from being delighted with the end result, Anne tells me that everything was done on time and that when you'd finished the work you rearranged all the pot plants etc. on the patio, leaving everything neat and tidy.

I'm planning to replace the garden fence and gates sometime next year and will definitely offer you the work.

Thanks again for a first class professional job.
