Mr T. Hyde-Smith. Randwick, Stroud
Iain has complete two jobs for me, one a simple dry stone facing wall and the other a more intricate raised patio area with curved walls and steps. In both cases Iain's dedication to perfection is second to none and his work much admired by all who have seen it. Iain has been consistently reliable and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Mrs Cantillion. Randwick, Stroud
Iain brought to life a very dead area of our garden that was on a difficult slope, using Cotswold stone and timber, we are especially pleased with the Cotswold stone wall, he gave 100% and more, We would certainly recommend Iain, and would use him again without hesitation.

Mr A. Hale. Rodborough Common, Stroud
Iain has rebuilt a 14 metre length of cotswold stone wall that collapsed due to last winter's severe frost conditions, and I suspect it's age as well! The end product is better than the original, looks very tidy and I'm quite sure will outlive me. Because of his attention to detail, reliability regards timing, and finishing off I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone else looking for his services. Well done Iain!

Mr & Mrs Prosser. Prestbury, Cheltenham
We required a substantial front boundary wall and the natural choice was Cotswold stone which ties in with the surroundings of our historic village.The wall Iain constructed for us far exceeded our expectations and combined a traditional construction to last a lifetime with a modern twist to distinguish us from others. Working from dawn 'til dusk (and dealing admirably with the attention of passing village residents...) Iain's work was celebrated by all and we would unreservedly recommend Iain's services to anyone who requires dry stone walling.

Mr G. Buchanan (Churchwarden). Avening, Tetbury
Thank you for the beautiful work which you carried out recently in our churchyard. The new wall has attracted a great deal of attention, and many people have expressed surprise at the skill with which you have merged the new work into the old. For my own part, as 'works manager,' it is a pleasure to engage a craftsman who turns up on time and works to budget! Thank you also for the quote which you have given us for extending the wall the extra 35 or so yards. I know this project will take a while to be passed by the authorities, but I hope and trust it will not be long before we can ask you back.

Mr I. Hime. Leckhampton, Cheltenham
A note of thanks for the very fine craftmanship you have displayed in rebuilding the stone wall in our garden. You picked the worst month EVER and we were constantly surprised that you still turned up when there was the slightest chance you could make progress. Your advice as the project unfolded was gently delivered and we never felt pressurised into a particular course of action. The end result has transformed our garden and we will have to rethink how best to show off this new asset.

Mr B. Stanley (Randwick Church Council). Randwick, Stroud
This superb professional work reflects not only Iain’s skill but also his dedication: just to carry each stone up or down the 1 in 4 slope, without vehicular access, has involved both strength and perseverance. Local people have become increasingly proud and excited by this outstanding example of a traditional Cotswold craft right in the heart of the Village.

Mrs V. Owston. Kings Norton, W.Mids
Iain transformed our large, uninteresting, ‘concrete shopping centre’ patio area into a beautiful bespoke, Cotswold looking country haven. He managed to magically combine classical elegance with country quaint. There is now nowhere we would rather be sitting at the weekend than in our own garden. It is stunning. That is thanks to the superb quality of Iain’s workmanship and his attention to detail which are complimented by his flair and landscaping creativity. He succeeded in capturing the vision and “look” that we wanted and developed our basic vague ideas into something very special. Before we found Iain, we had wasted a lot of time and money with garden designers and landscapers. They just wanted us to accept what they had done many times before, regardless of our views and ideas. Iain listened to us and brought his experience and exciting ideas to create the perfect patio . We cannot recommend him enough and cannot thank him enough.

Mr & Mrs Slade. Painswick, Gloucestershire
Dear Iain, Thank you for rebuilding our frost damaged Cotswold stone wall and therefore transforming a boring, dark part of our garden into a super sitting area and one which my husband can now reach and use in his wheelchair, Your hard work, love of the stone and attention to detail have certainly paid off and, without hesitation, i would recommend you to anyone who requires a dry stone wall built or paving and steps laid. Best wishes.

Mr & Mrs Pollock. Cirencester, Gloucestershire
Iain skillfully and painstakingly rebuilt a very wobbly Cotswold stone retaining wall in our terraced garden from scratch, including digging foundations - the lack of which which is probably why the old one was collapsing! He used huge, creamy Dorset stones, some of which have hints of blue and green, to take the weight of the soil behind. It looks amazing and puts the other walls to shame. I go out every morning and just look at it because it's so beautiful. Iain managed to build the wall without damaging my beloved roses growing on the bed below the wall, or the clematis growing up the crab apple tree and the lawn is totally unmarked. No mean feat. He left the garden looking immaculate. We would use him again without any hesitation. We'd be stupid not to. It was a joy having him around as he was punctual, hardworking and friendly. I hardly knew he was there - except for the wall, of course. Thanks for everything, Iain. You did a stonking job.
