I found Mark Pike on Yell.com to clear silt from a silt-trap pond fed by a constantly running small stream before the silt-free water goes into a large, ancient millpond. After initial inspection by Mark and his son Jamie to estimate a price for the work, a competitive price arrived which was accepted. There was a delay before the work was done but good companies are always busy. It was Jamie who actually did the work and I can't praise him enough for his workmanship and his attitude to the job and to me, the customer. Clearing silt is inevitably a messy job but he kept it to a minimum despite the surrounding ground being soft to work on. He made every effort to leave it clean and tidy.
The company is a family concern and it is obvious that everyone involved takes pride in doing a good job, something sadly lacking in many companies these days.
I can't recommend them highly enough and will certainly be using them again.

Garden, Patio and Driveway landscaping

We would highly recommend Mark Pike and his team. At the start of our project, Mark spent time with my husband and I to understand our requirements to have our garden, patio and driveway landscaped. His knowledge and experience of previous projects was of great assistance as he was able to suggest improvements to our ideas and extend upon them. We were confident in his abilities and that he could deliver exceptional service and we were not disappointed.

Throughout the works, which extended over 8 months, in different stages, he provided quotes for each stage, started when he promised and ensured the site was clear and tidy at the end of each day. He went out of his way working late nights up to Christmas to ensure our driveway was cleared to accept visitors over the holidays and ready for the tarmac in the new year. Mark used various contractors to assist him and every one of them turned up on time, were courteous and didn’t stop until the job was finished. I cannot fault their work from the turf company, patio layers, brick layers, carpenters and tarmac company. All over seen by Mark. We can’t forget Jamie, who also worked conscientiously and tirelessly into the evenings, and weekends. We would thoroughly recommend Mark Pike to others.

New Driveway - Just What I Wanted. Thank You.

I have been very impressed with the work carried out in digging up my old driveway, and extending it. Mark Pike initially spent time with me to ensure the details of the work were fully understood and provided a proper quotation accordingly. He then kept me well informed with regard to the start date, work in progress and completion date.

Mark and his son carried out the groundwork conscientiously and with a great deal of attention to detail. All aspects of the work were to the correct specification. The site was kept tidy and left clean at the end of each days work.

A team of 5 men from Okus Surfacing came, as
planned, to lay new tarmac. They worked, 'like clockwork' - as if it were a professional ballet !! Working studiously throughout, they again left the site clean and tidy on completion. This work was overseen by Mark Pike.

The work was completed on time (actually a day early) and within the price quoted.

I will be having further groundwork to be carried out in my front garden in the near future and I will not hesitate to involve Mark Pike. I would also thoroughly recommend him to others.

Ground works for extension

We can not recommend Mark and his team highly enough and we will be using them again as they provide an exceptional service. Mark arrived on time every time. He spent a significant time inspecting the site, provided the most reasonable quote and every aspect of our job was exactly as Mark explained it would be. Mark gave us advice regarding drainage that saved us thousands of pounds. He and his team also allowed three excited children to ask numerous questions and even allowed a digger mad 2 year old to sit on the digger, which made his day. We are currently saving to get Mark and the team back to do the driveway. We have recommended Mark to family and friends and they are equally pleased with the service he provided.

Extension groundworks, cresta

We used Mark for our extension and have no regrets at all. We have a young family which often showed interest in the diggers , but mark and his crew were great always having time to talk to them and letting our digger mad 2 year old have a ride. cheapest quote we had , top quality work and always happy to give advice. We would recommend to anyone that needs work doing. We will be using again.
