On average, it takes 6-8 weeks from payment to carry out your works.
You will have up to 90 days to send in your signed acceptance and pay for the works. When we receive your acceptance, we will contact you to agree the start date.
We will give you a call the week before works are due to start to make sure everything is ready.
We'll meet you on-site as soon as possible to discuss your requirements and book in a date for the works.
Once we're finished, we'll re-turf, re-seed any grassed areas and replant any flower beds if we've disturbed them.
We're always working to reduce our lead times and to get you connected as soon as possible. Once you’ve accepted our quote and paid for the service our delivery team will begin planning your work, and works will normally be completed in around 6-8 weeks.
We will always try to offer the earliest date available. If local traffic management or other highway restrictions apply in your area, we will let you know as this may increase the lead time before we can start work.
