Rob has developed a unique way of working with mortar, concrete, rock and stones of different types, sizes, and colours – creating stream-like water play areas with a distinctly natural feel.

We had Rob recommended to us and we couldn’t have been happier with his work ethic, professionalism and personal approach to the job. He knows his stuff in terms of legal requirements for children playgrounds and approaches the job as if it was for himself taking great care to achieve a very high standard result within tight time frames.
