Extensive paving at front of house
Peter Hill

Dennis was a pleasure to work with. He solved all our design problems and exercised skill born of obviously extensive experience. The result is very impressive. Everyone has remarked on what a difference it has made to the house and the quality of his craftsmanship.

PAVING FRONT GARDEN
Sharon Stubbs
01/04/2015
Having done excellent work on our back garden in 2013 we had no hesitation in asking Dennis to transform our front garden.  He quickly worked out the best way to achieve the results we wanted.  The work was carried out to a very high standard again and we are delighted with the end result. Would highly recommend this firm.

Patio, brickwork, repointing, general

Excellent all round service. Well planned, sticks to time and budget and discuses extras before committing. Great network of co-workers: Denis usually knows someone who can assist. We have used D&J a number of times, small to large jobs, we have found the team to be hard working, fair and very good quality workmanship. As a special recommendation, the team have worked within the strict planning guidelines we are obliged to respect in a conservation area and with a Grade II listed house. We originally found Denis by observing his work on a nearby property - its a good test and Denis passed!

Decking replaced by sandstone paving
Juliet Mearza
21/01/2015
Dennis has just finished building me a lovely sandstone patio. He removed an existing large decked area and replaced with a beautiful sandstone patio. Dennis was incredibly speedy, tidy and efficient- sticking to budget and time despite the chilly weather! He clearly knows what he's doing and was able to advise us on the best layout and I felt able to just let him get on with it. His attention to detail is noticeable. He is trustworthy and a genuinely nice guy.
My kids loved the free entertainment so are now missing keeping tabs on his work through the patio doors!

We were fortunate enough to meet Louis who does a stirling job with Dennis- but due to the winter climate sadly missed out on seeing the torso referred to in previous feedback- (next time Ill opt for a summer job as I understand both Dennis and Louis are getting themselves in shape for the summer season and trying to limit their cake/biscuit intake!!).

Marshalls Block Drive and Path
Rob Webb

Dennis and his team provided an excellent service from start to finish, correcting a number of problems and issues caused by the poor laying of inferior block paving on my neighbours adjoining drive.
All work was completed on time and to the price quoted and the finished drive and pathway looks great.
I will use Dennis again for more work in my garden and would not hesitate to recommend him.

Patio, wall and fences
Emma Southwell

Dennis transformed my small tatty front garden by laying a patio and building a lovely red brick wall. He also replaced a couple of rotten fence panels and a gate at the back. Despite pretty bad weather at times, he did a great job, was very reliable and kept in touch. When he initially came to quote he spent a long time with me, which was much appreciated, and even walked around nearby roads with me pointing out relevant wall and patio features to help me decide on my design!

Fencing, Patio & Repointing
Annette Pettman
10/07/2014
Dennis repaired a fence which had been damaged by last Winter's storms, he repointed a patio and sorted out a damp wall by removing the bricks at the base of the wall, putting in a waterproof membrane and repointing the wall up to a metre.

Unlike others who quoted for the work, Dennis knows what he's talking about and has high standards. It's difficult to find good people when the work you want done is less than an extension. He turned up when he said he would, is trustworthy and did an excellent job.

Patio, Path and Porch
Sally Groves
14/11/2013
I was very lucky to be recommended Dennis (D&J's Garden Design) as the work he carried out for me, ably assisted by Louis, is tiptop. For almost 30 years I had visions of transforming my "patio" and side at the back of my house from a dingy dump to something really eye-catching.
I had worked out a design using old terracotta tiles and pebbles. Given the shape and confinement of the space it was a difficult, fiddly job but Dennis was up to the challenge and understood exactly what was required. This included getting the gradient right for proper drainage.
He also rebuilt my crumbling porch floor and, with terracotta tiles left over, completed a super new front path. He made his own suggestion for edging it with red bricks which has worked very well.
The work was done to a very high professional standard and tidily and efficiently. Also Dennis does not let you down as far as time scales and is so hard working.
The only downside was that my West Ealing community had no sighting of Lou's torso - but then it was October!!
Thank you Dennis. My friends are deeply impressed! I will be at the front of the queue to recommend you and your team's work.

The front garden of our house was looking pretty run down, with a crumbling wall, some tree stumps, and a dreary gravel area. Not that welcoming!$0$0$0$0Dennis and his team were engaging, friendly, respectful and hard working throughout.  In just less than two weeks, they transformed the look of the front of the house, with a new wall, and beautiful grey slate Marshall's paving which has creating a far more welcoming front garden.  They also repaved the back of the house too.$0$0$0$0$0Great job and would certainly recommend Dennis.$0

No-nonsense efficiency
Andy Rooney
05/07/2013
Dennis has just transformed our front garden by removing an overgrown hedge and building a new flowerbed wall.  From quote to completion Dennis was straightforward and open.  He and his colleague dealt with the Hounslow bureaucracy for us, started and finished on time, worked efficiently and tidily, and the finished product is exactly what we wanted.  We did get one 'complaint' about the distraction caused by the young colleague's tanned torso on a hot afternoon!  Very satisfied.

As my garden was run down and looking a bit worse for wear I'd decided to have some work done and was recommended D&J's garden design, Dennis and his more then able assistant Louis carried out a lovely job and left my garden looking transformed would definitely use again in future.

I contacted Dennis after viewing other work he had undertaken in the area.  I was very pleased with the service he gave and the finished driveway.  Dennis and his team were professional, reliable and friendly and there were no problems with the work, financial agreement or finished drive.

Patio, new fence and gate
Sara Schroter
07/11/2012
D&J's Garden Design have just completed some excellent work for us.  Dennis and Louis totally transformed our garden in just over a week of hard labour.  They put in a new Marshall's patio which looks fantastic and replaced a 56 year old fence and fitted a new gate complete with a Yale lock so we can access the house from the rear.  Dennis was extremely helpful and advised us well. The end result is brilliant and we will enjoy it for many years to come!  Dennis is very knowledgeable and takes pride in his work.  I highly recommend him and his team - in fact we are going to ask him to come back and do some more work as it is so impressive.  I just saw my neighbour and she is delighted with the new fence as she has lived in the same house for over 60 years and couldn't wait for us to replace it and remove all the ivy and holly bushes! 

100% reliable, tidy, courteous, efficient and a jolly nice man too!!  Don't hesitate to contact him.......

Dennis got on with the job and completed it on time. They were careful and diligent about the work (we live in a Victorian terrace), there was minimal disruption to our neighbours. We will certainly be using them again in the back garden.

Terracing in sloping back garden

This is the second time Dennis has done some work for us. He was so good the first time we asked him to come back and complete a larger project. The standard of his work is excellent and he and his assistant, Louis, are delightful. When designing my garden plan I did not appreciate all the difficulties involved but Dennis sorted everything, came up with solutions to the problems I presented him with and the end result is fantastic.

A quality Service
M Bines
01/04/2012
We required a large area of patio to be paved in Marshall's Heritage random paving. The finished result was magnificent and we are very grateful for Dennis efforts.

The consideration for access and working routes to the patio area did not hamper our day to day use of our house or garden, and Dennis cleared and cleaned up each night to make the area of work tidy and respectable.

The overall design of the random slabs worked! and provided a great effect and also his consideration and explaination for drainage and the various minor falls in the design addressed the water run off.

The overall service was extremely polite with the added attention to detail Dennis seems to apply to all his work has made this installation an excellent service and I would recommend him to others.

Congratulations also on your recent Marshalls award, true recognistion of a quality all round service.

An all round excellent experience
Katy Corcoran
13/03/2012
As part of my parents' 48th wedding anniversary present, I decided to treat them to a garden makeover as their garden was all 1970s crazy paving, concrete patio and poor quality lawn. My dad warned me that I had to watch the drainage and my mum wanted a "round step" outside the back door so I was completely under pressure: it's bad enough doing work on your own house.

As I was going to use Marshall's natural stone selected from Marshall's catalogue, I found Dennis listed on their website as one of their approved installers and with over 25 years' worth of experience I thought he must know a thing or two. I also liked the photos of the work he had previously done so it all gave me lots of confidence.

Dennis came round, measured up, heard my plans and suggested that I visit a local supplier so that I could see the stone I had picked for real. Once I was happy with the stone, he then came back to me promptly with a quote, which I accepted and work took 10 days to complete. Dennis and Co turned up every day on time, worked extremely hard and left the garden tidy at the end of the day. Dennis also helped me with design decisions (I had gone overboard with the number of curves in the new lawn) and with the layout. My parents now have a lovely garden, with walls to sit on, defined borders, a beautiful patio and paths, and a round step leading from the patio door and it all drains beautifully.

I didn't realise that they made talented craftsmen like this any more.

The garden now looks like a Cotswold haven; my parents adore it - not a day goes by without them saying how beautiful it is. I have waited ten years to do this because I didn't know where to start and in the end I had nothing to worry about.

So thank you Dennis

Brick Driveway
Howard Thompson

D & J's laid a new Marshalls block driveway for us in December 2011.  They were always couteous, punctual, hardworking and efficient.  They left the site tidy at all times.  We are delighted with the result, which is all we could have hoped for, and would have no hesitation in recommending this firm. We initially approached them having admired their workmanship nearby.  It was pleasure to do business with them.

Front and Rear Garden Rebuild
Malcolm Bines

I used D&J on recommendation and was not disappointed. They were very helpful when planning and designing both the front and rear of the property. Throughout the work was done in a professional and friendly manner. I found the team to be thorough and reliable with a 'can-do' attitude - nothing was too much trouble.  They even cleared up afterwards - a bonus!

Front Garden Transformed
A Tyler
09/03/2012
We employed Dennis and his team to revamp our front "yard" which resembled more of a wasteland than a garden.  He managed to transform it, over 5 very cold days in February from one of the worst looking gardens on our street to the one of the best at a very competitive price.  He spent a lot of time with us initially talking about what we wanted to do and offered very helpful suggestions.  We had a lot of concrete dug up, a wall rebuilt and the front completely paved - no vegetation! Very pleasant to have around and very happy with they way he worked, - tidy, efficient, turned up when he said he was going to and the end result is fantastic - exactly what we wanted.
