Ben has provided an excellent service from start to finish. Just before Christmas I ordered a pair of gates from the supplier and within a few days Ben made contact and came to measure up. He kept me fully up to date with the process and gave me a date for delivery and installation. At 8am on the day of installation Ben duly arrived and commenced work. The gates are now proudly in place and the job is complete. Ben is to be thoroughly recommended.

I have been very pleased with the work Ben carried out for me, replacing large gate posts & fitting a bespoke gate. He is always cheerful, even in the poorest conditions & works hard to get the job done meticulously & to time. I will definitely be contacting Ben again for future work.
The old steps up to my house were uneven and horribly slippery after rain or frost. They made me feel unsafe and the rickety handrail didn’t help. I knew Ben would do a good job replacing them. What he did exceeded my high expectations. He was meticulous, removing two layers of old paving stones and making sure there is proper drainage. The new steps look beautiful (due to Ben’s design and building skills) and I feel safe walking up and down them, whatever the weather.
“Working with Ben was great from beginning to end. From answering our initial call promptly, getting back to us with the information needed, visiting to appraise our gates and then installing them. Ben was professional, friendly and clearly experienced. Our gates are now happily in place and we’re delighted with them. We can recommend Ben utterly.”
Matthew Stone, The Coach House, St Mabyn.
Having already seen the quality of Ben’s work nearby, I decided to see if he would look at my sub-standard and already failing garden gate and fence and replace it with something very much better. Something that would last much longer whilst at the same time be affordable and give value for money. Ben came out and was straightaway able to make a very good plan with me that I was happy with. He then provided me with an estimate and time-frame shortly after. I found Ben extremely polite, neat and tidy and a very good communicator. As if that wasn’t enough, I found him to be a real craftsman who takes the sort of pride in his work that becomes self-evident in the result. I now have a gate and fence that not only looks good, but is also built to last and gives the value for money I had hoped for. I was happy with the final invoice and have already been recommending his services to others and will continue to do so.

Ben fitted my new bi-folding driveway gates, and I couldn’t be happier! He was professional and accurate, and the quality of work is great. Everything was left immaculately tidy and he kept me informed of everything going on, which was very important to me as it was for a holiday rental that was occupied at the time. I would definitely recommend Ben in the future for any garden maintenance or similar work.
We are so grateful that Ben was recommended to us by Cornwall Timber. We were provided with a professional, friendly and helpful service. From start to finish Ben showed great attention to detail and discussed any issues that arose along the way. We are absolutely delighted with the finished result. Fitting our wide new Idless gates in an uneven opening took skill. We highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for a professional service at an acceptable price.
From start to finish it has been a delight to have met Ben and had his help and advice in putting up gates in my back garden.
He is a charming man and takes time to make sure that everything is to the best standard for his clients; making sure that the gates I decided upon were most suitable for my house (not the original ones I had considered).
Once he arrived to erect the gates he was so hardworking, amazingly precise in his work (I had thought two gates would only take a day but he took two to make sure everything was perfect!); also offering thorough advice on after-care.
I would highly recommend Ben for any work due to his diligence, hard work and lovely personality.
Well done Ben you deserve much credit for making a successful business from your undoubtable skills.

"We are absolutely delighted with the fence Ben built for us. It was a far from straightforward job and he tackled it with energy, resourcefulness and great skill. He was reliable and kept in touch to let us know when the work would start. Overall a fantastic job, and a lovely bloke."

Ben was very professional and hard working doing our new gates and fencing, we would not hesitate to recommend Ben to anyone wanting work like this done.

We had a uneven area at the top of our garden which Ben has transformed with a large decking area, we gave him a brief but he designed the deck and steps leading to a lower tier it has made it much safer for my wife who is unsteady on her feet, it is now safe, looks amazing and as it was bespoke he ensured the run off was angled correctly and after the amount of rain we have had recently, it was excellent, not one area had lying water. It is now an area that we can sit, relax and enjoy the garden.
I would recommend Ben to anyone who is looking to improve their garden and outside areas.
Rob & Iris
Amazing work on the garden! Everything looks great and you’ve left it all super tidy just like you said you would. Will definitely use you again in the future and will recommend you to others! Many thanks for all your hard work.

My front garden had been neglected for years. Whilst small it was unmanageable, shady and not a great space to be in. Ben has transformed it into a lovely light space. It is simple, easy to maintain and looks amazing. It is an absolute pleasure to be outside now. Single handedly (well...with the help of Mac the dog) Ben has transformed the outside space! He worked with my budget, personality and brief to create the perfect result. I am looking forward to working with him to achieve the
same outstanding outcome in the outside space at the back of the house.
He is a genius!
We have a very awkward garden entrance and needed some large double timber gates made to fit. Ben was recommended. He was reliable, polite and helpful under difficult circumstances. Our gates were beautifully made and fitted to perfection. We could not have been more pleased.

“We have used Ben since 2012 and have always found him to be very reliable. His work is always done well and his rates are very competitive. He has never let us down and will always fit in an urgent job to help us out. He is courteous and pleasant to our clients and would definitely recommend him.”
Eve Gover, Lettings Manager, Philip Martin, Truro.
Ben's maintained my garden for many years and done an excellent job. The 35m fence and flight of steps he built will no doubt outlive me. A very conscientious and friendly hard worker, I would recommend without hesitation.
“Ben recently installed some bespoke double driveway gates along with adjacent fencing and pedestrian gate at our house. In addition he also undertakes shrub and tree maintenance and trimming for us and is a pleasure to deal with.
The rubbish is always removed, and everything is left very neat and tidy. In addition there are no hidden costs and he has proved to be extremely reliable and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone( In fact I always do)”
Andy Goundry, Bsc FNAEA, Director Goundrys Estate Agents
I have used Ben for gardening and fence construction both at home and at a property we rent out. Ben has always given a clear and reasonable estimate; turned up as planned; done a great job and left everything clean and tidy. I strongly recommend him to you.
