“Finished to a Very High Standard”

"After coming home from Lakeside on Saturday the 16th our front wall and gate had been hit by a car, so we had to get it sorted. I emailed a couple of local paving companies and Luke from L Benson & Sons Groundworks got back to me straight away. We arranged to meet on the following Monday at 10:00 am which was the 18th and with speaking to Luke he seemed a genuine and likeable guy and the quote he gave was reasonable, so I was a bit cheeky and asked if it was possible to do before Christmas. We both had a bit of a laugh and Luke said providing I can get the blocks delivered it wouldn’t be a problem. He made a phone call a told me he had got the delivery for Wednesday afternoon and that he would be back in the morning to make a start. I couldn’t believe it when I got home Tuesday evening to see that the driveway had been cleared of over 20 ton of concrete and soil and the base was in ready for paving. When I got home Wednesday the drive was all laid and finished to a very high standard. 10/10"

“Very Happy”

"I had Luke and his guys to do a makeover on my whole garden and I am very happy I choose them even though they wasn't the cheapest! Or the dearest!!! Everything was explained in detail throughout the job and everything was finished to a very high standard. I couldn't fault them in any way at all. 10/10 thanks Tim"

“Polite and Helpful”

"I found Luke using TrustATrader. I needed somebody to replace a driveway which was breaking up. Luke and his team were very hard working. He was polite and helpful, explaining what he would do to complete the job requested, and how and why the different stages of the job would happen. As well as doing the driveway with block paving, the front garden was levelled, and grass seed put down. The site was left clean and tidy after each day’s work."


"There is not a bad word I can say about Luke. From the moment he come and gave me a quote to end result he is outstanding. Friendly and reliable through the rain the work on my small but no long ugly front garden carried on. I don't have a bad word to say about this company. He makes you feel like you have known him years and that is always lovely. The garden has turned out amazing even had a neighbour ask for a quote, the garden was always left clean and tidy after every visit. We had no wait for the work to start can't praise Luke enough. Above highly recommend thank you Luke for all you have done for us the garden is more than a dream come true no amount of words will say how much the ugly old look was getting me down. Sorry the first sign went for a walk. Here's to many jobs ahead of you keep up the amazing work."

“Polite, Reliable, and Professional”

"Luke Benson has a real passion for his work! He & his team installed 70 square metres of multi-sized block paving to the front of my property, taking just over a week. This team of 4 hard grafters were a polite, reliable, professional crew, at all times considerate to me & my neighbours - the site always kept clean & tidy. What impressed me most was their attention to detail - no corners cut here! End result? Total satisfaction, a really first-class job. Would certainly recommend this company 100%. Thanks Luke!"

“Excellent Job”

"Luke and his team did an excellent job renewing/extending our drive and laying a new patio. Luke had some great design ideas. The standard of work was very high, all his workers were friendly and polite, altogether a great team and great job."

“Exactly What I Wanted”

"Luke and his two workers have done a great job. It took a while to be able to get a date set up - probably because they are so busy! But once booked they started and completed in really good time and have done exactly what I wanted. Very neat and tidy work, all cleaned up at the end too. And they were very patient with a 4-year old wanting to help and asking lots of questions!"

“Very Punctual and Reliable”

"Luke has done a couple of jobs for us, the first was digging up our garage base which was too thick for me to do. Came around straight after I called him and was done the very next day, suburb job and price. So, decided to get a quote from Luke to replace part of our front drive (Skip lorry smashed), new front step and path, and to dig out the rest of the garden and lay stones. Very pleased with price the final results. Luke is very punctual and reliable, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone."

“Superb Job”

"Luke and the team have done a superb job clearing, levelling, and seeding my rear garden. The garden was overgrown, had a large mound of earth to level along with a few trees to cut down, in addition to this underground drainage was installed to improve the flow of a ditch at the end of the garden. The cost was competitive, they turned up on time every day, were polite, kept us informed at every stage and they also worked hard every day, there was certainly no slacking. I would certainly recommend Luke and will be looking to him again myself in future for further work."

“Very Reassuring”

"Very happy with Luke and his team. Luke is polite, friendly, responsive and is certainly an expert at his trade. Did a very good job levelling, top-soiling and re-seeding my garden. His quote was the most competitive as well among 6 landscapers I consulted. Luke also followed-up on his completed works, which was very reassuring. I would very confidently recommend Luke. In fact, I recommended Luke to my immediate neighbour, who also used him for a fencing job. I have also subsequently recommended Luke to one of my work colleagues. I wish him and his team all the best."

“Very Impressive”

"I appointed L Benson & Sons Groundworks to replace my rear Fence & Gate. They arrived bang on time and began the job immediately. The job was completed within 5 hours and to an extremely high standard. The price was highly competitive (£460 compared to my most expensive quote of £1100!). They provided the Fence & Gate already wood-stained, took away all of the old material and left my property in a perfect state. They even rang me the next day for a customer courtesy call. Very impressive! I am happy to recommend them to future customers."

“Very Personable”

"As storm Katie had killed my original fence over Easter weekend I needed to get my new fence sorted ASAP, as I have 2 dogs. Luke came and gave me a quote and was very personable, unlike others that had been round. Whilst Luke wasn't the cheapest quote I had received the fact that he spoke to me like a real person meant that I didn't hesitate. Luke and his team turned up nice and early to get the job down and even accommodated a couple of changes I wanted along with fitting some gates that I had bought. I cant fault a single thing that Luke and his team have done, incredibly friendly guys and an excellent job done. NB: they do love their tea!"
