Front Garden Transformation

James and the Great Outdoors team transformed my front garden in July 2019. They did an amazing job. What was once a drab, overgrown 1960s frontage with a tired fence, ugly concrete walkways and a lumpy, uneven and crooked lawn is now a very low maintenance, modern, minimalist garden with bright fencing, porcelain paving, attractive sleepers, complimentary decorative stone, burgeoning shrubs and a perfect lawn. I was so happy with the work that I also asked James to replace my front and back gutters, fascias & soffits and repoint my chimney, and work will begin on the back garden in 2020. James is a hard working, experienced, thoughtful and dedicated perfectionist who completes tasks to a very high standard using quality, locally sourced materials, delivered within budget and timescale, and who goes the extra mile to ensure his clients are happy. Neighbours I have never really spoken to before have made a point of approaching me to compliment the garden and to ask for James’s number. If you’re thinking of having any kind of work done to your garden or home exterior, you won’t be disappointed with Great Outdoors.

Sasha Ashton
Friendly local reliable honest tradesman

We had our driveway completely relayed with the new block pattern arrangement at the beginning of May 2018. James and his team had a very good proffessional way and they completed the job with great care and to a fantastic finish. Having completed the driveway he then erected a fence and postings in the back garden again with great skill. We would recommend this company for their great work and final cleaning up after the completed jobs. Thank you James and your team and we will be using them again in the future. Norman & Sue, Bury.

Jim and Luke have just finished re-roofing my house an have done such a fantastic job! They have worked in the cold and the rain and kept me updated at every stage. In the past they have re-pointed the house, re-cemented the flags in the back yard and fixed the guttering! I would totally recommend Great Outdoors for all your outside work!

Excellent job

I called James to give me a quote for extending my block drive he came the next day to look and I had the quote e mailed to me the same day, excellent service after I met him and talked with him I did not bother contacting any other companies, got an excellent feel about him from day one ,we set a date then after a week we decided to lift the original drive as well so it all matched James came back , another price the same day and another date set. James and the team arrived 2 weeks ago and started and it is now finished despite the bad weather, they have done an excellent job , the drive looks fantastic, we would recommend him for his excellent customer service and every aspect of the job. Well done James and the team

Communication was clear throughout

James and his team were excellent from start to finish. They listened to what we wanted and prepared a detailed and fairly priced quote. They then worked hard with attention to detail to create a great outdoor space for our family which looks fantastic and has fixed previous issues with drainage. Communication was clear throughout and they were a friendly and polite team to have working on our property, especially Pip the dog! Thank you.

Sandra Mhairi
I'm hard to please bit I was impressed

James did a great job widening my driveway and adapting the existing block paving. I’m hard to please but I was impressed with their attention to detail, plus nice guys to have around.

Stephen Linas
Pictures speak for themselves

110% recommend James and the team! When he came to look at the space and provide a quote, he seemed to understand my vision, and made it a reality. The quote provided was very reasonable for the amount of work required, and they completed all work in a timely manner. Very polite, punctual, and good communication throughout. The before and after pictures speak for themselves! We now have a lovely space for our little one to play in, and all completed to a very high standard!
