Dear Neil,

I just wanted to put on record my thanks for the efforts you and your team made when building my wall in the summer. It makes a refreshing change, when dealing with the building world, to have a company that delivers a quality service on time and within budget. Your work has dramatically enhanced our property and has created a great deal of interest from passing traffic.

I found your team to be extremely hard working, courteous and conscientious. This was illustrated by one of them almost working himself into a state of heat exhaustion during the summer's very hot spell in his determination to achieve the objectives set and not let either you, or me down.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you to future potential customers, but would warn them that they should have a plentiful supply of biscuits, which we found to be highly motivational!!

Kind regards


DIANA SAN JUAN


Dear Neil, Martin and Andy

Thank you all for the stunning work that you have just completed on our home. You have widened the entrance to our driveway and rebuilt the original
pillars to such an exacting specification that it looks as if it was
built that way when the house was first constructed. Everybody has been admiring your work and we feel that it has most certainly enhanced our home and its value.

Everybody was polite, courteous, extremely skilled and took a real
pride in their work and end result.

The site was cleaned to a state better than it was when you first arrived and it was a pleasure to have you working on our home.

Your success is well deserved and with your skill and customer service will continue to thrive.

Many, Many thanks again

Martin & Jayne Murray Heaton, Bolton .


We first “commissioned” Neil in 2000 to build a two metre high largely sandstone stone wall for our garden.  It included a stone archway through to the field, an arched window and two arched alcoves.  (Though not an artist, I did a crude sketch on a piece of cardboard).  Completed in early 2001, it was exactly what we asked for.  It was a double wall, built “on the batter”, with hand-hewn coping stones, and resembled a drystone wall in many ways.  It was and still is lovely to look at whether it’s raining or sunny.

Twelve or more years later – somewhat tired of having to replace very unlovely and clattery wooden fences after the latest gale - we asked Neil to continue the wall along the back of the garden and back up to the house.  We count ourselves very fortunate that he was available.  With Neil’s help we managed to source locally 50 tons of stone very similar to the stone we sourced before  (After a year or so, with weathering, the “extension” will look just the same as the earlier wall.)  He completed the second phase at the end of January 2014.  We are again delighted.

Neil is an artist and craftsman of the highest calibre: just watch and marvel as he chooses each stone individually, as individually he shapes it – glovelessly -  (bashes it!) and places it carefully into position; just watch as he works away in whatever weather to create a wall which will probably outlast you and me by a few generations and will always be a joy to behold.

Neil supplies you with accurate and transparent quotations and estimates.  His prices (then and now) seem to us very fair, and we have no hesitation in recommending him.  He is also a pleasure to have around.  Expect a steady, careful and thorough job to be done.  Have a good idea of what you would like, and try to stick to it. 

If you do commission Neil, please keep him supplied with tea and coffee about once an hour.  Believe me, he deserves it.  He’s a treasure.

So – the bottom line again - if you would like a beautiful stone wall round your property or part of your property, contact Neil Carson and see when (if) he’s available.
