Testimonials

Happy customers hold the key to my own job satisfaction. The following are bona fide extracts from feedback I have received.

Mark is a very professional stonemason. He is very confident and takes time to understand exactly what you require. In our case is was the building and repair of a very old cottage wall and footpath in a conservation area. Mark did an outstanding job and the wall/path have received universal positive comment from residents in the village. If you want a quality job to last a life time look no further.

Thank you so much for the wonderful work you have done and the
professional, courteous and considerate manner in which you have done it. I
have had our neighbours singing your praises today, and given the lack of
tolerance they had following the previous work, that is really some
achievement! It also looks fantastic and we are really pleased.

Mark did a fantastic job for us with building a stone wall, creating steps from new and also updating and extending some existing steps. Faced with a number of options for the wall (brick,railway sleepers or stone) , Mark made the decision easy with his enthusiasm to use existing materials and recycling to save money. We were impressed with the quality and responsiveness of his communications , his ideas and the accuracy of his quotes. We started the project looking for someone to build a wall and we ended up with a 'feature' for the garden. Check out his website, the photos from our project are on there !

We're delighted with the repointing and rebuilding work that Mark carried out on our stone garden perimeter walls. The rate at which the job was completed was impressive, with everything done to a high standard and in aesthetic keeping with the original walls and surroundings. Mark was dependable and would keep us informed of dates, any weather-enforced changes to plans, and progress at the end of each day. He has a detailed knowledge of the local area and his work helps keep it looking at its best - very highly recommended.

Mark is a very professional, reliable, friendly and competitive contractor who made an excellent job of building a boundary wall for me out of natural stone. He ensured the wall was built to my requirements and gave me a full breakdown of costs. He also gave me regular updates to assure me that the job was going as planned. When the delivery of materials was not taking place as arranged he co-ordinated alternative arrangements to avoid any unnecessary delay. I would certainly recommend Mark to anyone who wants a job done properly.

Mark built for us a curved natural stone retaining wall on a sloping plot to hold a raised flower bed. He provided an excellent service from start to finish.

He engaged with us as we considered our options and provided alternative suggestions on garden layout, materials and cost saving areas.

He was always available by e-mail to discuss ideas and provided photographs of similar jobs to help us decide on what we wanted. He provided an accurate quote broken down into time and materials as requested.

He worked autonomously to lay the foundations and build the wall within two days. He consulted with us during the building to ensure the details (e.g. pointing) were as we wished.

He was professional throughout and cleaned up thoroughly afterwards. The result is a beautiful stone wall that we couldn't be happier with!

"Rebuilding a stone wall".
"Excellent craftsmanship taking on board our thoughts and advising what would work or could be better done differently. We can thoroughly recommend Mark and would certainly employ him again. The cost was reasonable and he started early and worked solidly through the day so was good value on a day rate. "

"Removal and rebuild front wall".

"What a delight it has been to have Mark working on my garden wall I can't recommend him enough. He's taken down part of a front wall for a driveway and built some fantastic pillars, as well as increasing the height of the remainder. His attention to detail, and work ethic makes him the master craftsman he is. He's been a real pleasure to work with and have around my property, so much so I've already booked him into work on another large wall we have. Would recommend without a doubt."

I had a design that I wanted for my garden and Mark made this happen. He suggested alternative designs which I had not thought of which made an improvement on what I anticipated. His workmanship is excellent. He takes great care in what he does and has a great deal of pride in his workmanship. The work was completed on time. I would highly recommend him.

"Stone Edge Farm wall repair".

"What an absolute find. A first class job, completed on time. Fantastic,reliable and thoroughly professional in every way. We will definitely use him again."

Mark rebuilt a rough stone garden wall for me. Its foundations were sound but many of the stones had slipped and weeds were growing out of the cracks. Mark took the wall down, rebuilt it and repointed it. Not only has he done an excellent job but he was a pleasure to employ. He communicated patiently and efficiently with me every step of the way, explaining in detail what he planned to do and why. He told me when he would be working on my wall and he kept to his word. His estimate of the materials and time needed was spot on. He provided me with invoices from the builders' merchant to show the cost of materials used. He supplied some extra stone we needed at minimal cost. And he worked on a Saturday so the wall would be finished before we went on holiday. I would confidently recommend him to anyone and would not hesitate to employ him again.

Mark did a great job replacing our collapsed retaining wall and extending our steps. He was careful, tidy and creative in his approach and the job was completed much faster than we expected and with a better result than we could have hoped for. A skillful and conscientious craftsman.

"Mark did a fantastic job in building a new stone wall for me. His eye for detail in choosing the position of each individual stone in order to make the most of the limestones' qualities was really impressive. He gave good advice throughout, worked to an agreed timetable -despite some appalling weather- and kept to his initial quote. I found him friendly, enthusiastic and approachable and I can't recommend him highly enough."
