Phil Ragless of Phoenix Groundworks and Construction has been instrumental in producing the groundworks for a large timber frame building on our difficult site. The company has often worked in very poor weather conditions and the time keeping and communication with us have been faultless.
Phil has also produced an attractive drive and courtyard for the new building as well as restoring another driveway to very good effect. Other jobs have included the erection of several large and robust compost bays and drain clearage as well as preparations for soft landscaping.
We have been very impressed with Phil's professionalism, expertise, breadth of knowledge and sensitive handling of materials.
Phil has been a pleasant person to have around and his help has been much appreciated. We very much look forward to employing Phoenix again in the near future.

We were very impressed with the timekeeping and cleanliness of your team. The site was kept neat and clean despite heavy rain at times. The quality of the final groundworks was excellent and the frame building company commented on what a great job you did. All your correspondence in respect of the project was timely and all deadlines were met.
We have now employed Phil Ragless over many years on various projects in our grounds:
* Installation of new surface water drainage system and clearance of blockages
* Installation of foul water system for new kitchen extension
* Erection of new close-board fencing and retaining walls
* Construction of ramps to enable wheelchair access to our house and garden
* Erection of bollards on the edge of our drive
All the work was completed to a very high standard. Phil has taken great care to ensure that his work is sympathetic to the house and existing paths etc. both in terms of design and the materials he uses. We are delighted with the results.
He has responded immediately and cheerfully to all our requests and the projects have always been completed on time even if this has involved him and his team working long hours in the most inclement of weather conditions. The site has been left tidy both during construction and upon completion.
We have been impressed by the thoughtfulness of his advice, his cheerful enthusiasm, the quality of his work and his willingness to respond quickly to any small emergency. We recommend him to anyone who can employ his diverse skills and experience.

Phil quickly responded to my request and did an excellent job for me. He and his team are very tidy and courteous. He subsequently did some work on our patio and garden which again was of a high standard.

A pleasure to deal with.
Very good and efficient service, from quote to completion. Would highly recommend and will use again.
Phil arrived on time and completed the job in a morning making best use of the materials that we had purchased. Left everything clean and tidy. Would definitely use him again.
Phil turned up promptly, did a great professional job. I was so impressed that I asked him to do some follow on work on the driveway which he did shortly after, and when we saw the outcome, we said 'wow!'. I would recommend Phoenix, not only was it good work at a good price, but also by a very nice man!
Very nice customers left alone to get on with the job, look forward to working for them again.

Right from the start Phil Ragless demonstrated a welcome reliablity and a professionalism which indicated his determination to get on with the task in hand. He completed most of the work whilst we were away on holiday and I have no doubts regarding his honesty and his abilities. He is pleasent, well manered, honest and the standard of his work is excellent. I have no hestitation in recommending him for any work which lies in his field. I think it unlikley that he would undertake any work for which he had nsuffcient experience. He relaid a patio for my wife and I should be very pleased to allow this to be inspected as the general standard of his work.
