External Works
Oak Steps
Raised Beds

We were introduced to Rokwell for the external works at our newly refurbished bungalow. Rokwell delivered lots of attractive and functional outdoor space in attractive stonework, lighting, well-designed solid gate, an impressive porch of stone and oak with steps and an alternative inclined path. Excellent new stone steps and platforms at all doors, a wide patio area with steps up to a lawn with two magnificent raised beds and a newly created patio for the yurt, sunk down to ensure our neighbours' view was preserved and drainage has been provided for all the external areas. The look and feel of the place is now consistent and very attractive as well as totally usable. A significant achievement was designing all the work so that it felt like a single integrated property rather than a patchwork.
Materials were carefully selected to provide the necessary solidity as well as beauty. Rokwell's creativity and commitment to deliver a really quality result was exemplary. Rokwell's knew when to call in other contractors and manage their work - a roofer and electrician were seamlessly added to the team as needed. Our segum green roofed shed is so magnificent neighbours thought at first that it was residential! Rokwell's were uniformly fair in their pricing and followed our request to place quality and scope ahead of budget and timescale if trade-offs were required. They were on budget and the results were to excellent standards of quality and scope. We more than recommend Matt Blakey and his team.

Client Review:

Rokwell's were given a laundry list of what we wanted, and a handdrawn sketch of a garden design for the back. That was all. We also emphasised our interest in quality and functionality - in other words, we wanted things to do much more than *look* good; the work needed to *be* good: robust, long-lasting, high quality and to do what it was meant to do. Matt Blakey and his team proved themselves more than able to take it from there to the final completely satisfying reality which we signed off this week. Bravo and very many thanks indeed to Matt and Dave and their team!
