Default Local Diggers work

thought it might be good for my business to list a few jobs over the coming months and list photos here, might be interesting for some of you lot as well as promote us at the same time to potential clients

this is a simple new build, 6 bed house for an interior designer on the river thames, we dug and poured the foundations in 4 days, then bricklayer came in to get up to floor height. this is us returning to site to stone up the oversite ready for blinding, install the foul drainage and install a crated soakaway then to pass over job to bricklayers.

this is a sunken trampoline that we supply and install as an all inclusive package. starting at 900 depending on size and location. these are very popular in the summer months and can even help drainage if installed in the correct way

a simple two day driveway solution, we excavate and stone up on day one, second day the granite blocks are installed and then the shingle is laid on a sharp sand blinding and these modular sheets with a geotextile base, which are great for keeping the shingle on the driveway instead of over the pavement, while stopping most weed growth at the same time. we returned a week later and turfed the lawn

Have you got a problem with someone pinching your photos Dan.

Interested in the modular sheets, is there a max recommended gradient for these and have you seen how they perform over medium to long term?

we do a little insurance work and this is what was left of a wall locally after a doddery old chap slammed in to it late one night, he was fine but shaken, we removed the wall and i will be on the trowel in a few weeks replacing it with a new one.

hi minty, im due back on that job before xmas for a garage build, i will let you know. a great system tho and the final finish is perfectly level and no sinking on shingle. wheel spinning would damage it, we will see how it fairs in the coming year as for the pics, i worked for a local builder last year, he was bragging about his web site and i had a look, i dont know who was more embarrassed to see a picture of my work on his website! i asked him to remove it and we never had any more work with him after that! cheeky git
