Our drive required the existing asphalt removing and relaying with new edgings. It was our intention to obtain three quotes for the work but after meeting with John Grace and discussing the work both my wife and I felt confident enough to put the work with JGS. We looked at other jobs locally and spoke with people that we knew had had work done by this company and all the feedback was very positive and so in July 2017 the work was done. Over three days they removed our existing drive to a substantial depth, laid a border of double block pavers set in concrete, laid a compacted granular sub-base, black coarse asphalt and finished it off with a 10mm Red Asphalt. The new drive looks just brilliant and the edge border makes for an especially nice detail. The guys were all very courteous and polite and left our drive tidy each evening and they were a real pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.

You can always tell when someone is good at their job, they are always busy; always in demand. This is JGS. We came across their work while walking the dogs. The drive they had just finished was perfect. Every aspect of their work is faultless. Be prepared to wait a while as they are always in demand, but the wait is well worth it. A great job at a fair price by a group of lovely lads. Thanks John and your team.

We have just had our drive way completely renovated. John and his team have done a fantastic job. They had lots of digging out to do, walls to build, borders to raise and block paving and Tarmac to lay. Each day they arrived on time and worked hard throughout the day. They always kept us informed of the progress and communicated well with us with options available etc. The price we paid was more than reasonable for the quality of the work conducted which we simply cannot fault. Overall very professional, very reliable and great attention to detail. Would certainly recommend. Thank you!!!

JGS recently did a large driveway at our house which incorporated some fencing, groundwork's, large quantities of earth removal and subsequent backfill, finished off with extensive block paving. The original time frame was around one and a half weeks but with a bank holiday in between and more than 30 tonnes of soil removed than was expected, they still got in done in a fortnight. We were very happy with John and his team who were a good mix of youth, skill and experience. With John also owning the lorries , grabbers etc there were no holdups. They always started on time, put in a full day and were very professional. They didn't leave the job until it was totally finished. I would definitely recommend them for any driveway or similar work and will certainly use them again.

I am absolutely delighted with the garden make over the JGS team achieved and all in just six days. The work involved digging up the whole of the concreted and tarmaced back garden and then providing all the hard landscaping to give me a totally fresh start. Well they blitzed the place to achieve amazing results in just six days. They worked with me as the original design became organic and emergent, their selection of paving and other materials was totally in keeping with the property - excellent choices . John and his team were truly wonderful. Always on time, wonderfully polite and considerate and tremendously hard working. They worked round all my requests and have done a truly tremendous job, I really can't thank them enough. They were an absolute joy and pleasure to have working on my house, a big thank you to John and his team
