Business overview

Steve Nixon, the founder of Spring Drives, has had over twenty three years of practical experience in ground works and hard landscaping. He decided that he could better help people by dealing with them directly in order to give them exactly what they wanted in the finished job.

It was in 2000 he formed his own company, Spring Drives, to offer his extensive expertise and knowledge to his customers. Since then, the company have gradually developed a praiseworthy reputation amongst their highly satisfied clientele. This is due to their professional approach, a wealth of knowledge and experience and a guarantee of satisfaction that has still to be challenged by any of their customers.

Spring Drives is a true family firm as Steve's son Lee now works with his father and is developing the skills he has been learning since he was a teenager and started accompanying him at weekends and school holidays.

Drive and Patio Review

We had “Spring Drives” clean a very used and neglected drive and they have restored it to its former glory.
After viewing some of Steve’s work we then decided to have the patio and steps in the back garden replaced.
The standard and precision of work applied could not be higher. The advice given and viewed examples were very helpful.
All of the team are extremely good and dedicated workers and we would be very happy to show anyone the excellent results.
A very big thank you to them all.
To see standard of work and designs completed by ‘Spring Drives’ go to www.springdrives.com
There are excellent examples of completed work/

Excellent work

Stephen and Lee put my drive down 5 years ago and it still looks brand new. It was planned and done including the drain within 4 days. Beautiful job. Well worth the money. 😁

Spring Drives from Brasside have made us a lovely drive consisting of the colour brindle block bricks with a grey surround. Steve whose business it is came to our house explained everything clearly for example we did not need planning permission for the drive as a soakaway was being fitted and that a licence would be required in order for them to drop the kerb. He gave us a very reasonable quote. They worked extremely hard for two days and went the extra mile to help us. They are professional, decent, friendly, approachable and their manners are impeccable. They left the pavement and road clean and tidy so that it is not possible to imagine that we have had any work carried out. As they drove away a lady passing asked for their telephone number as she was so impressed. People walking by have commented on how attractive our garden now looks with a new drive!
