Fantastic landscapers

"I have such high praise for Ian. A landscaper that’s on your side. He did an amazing job, gave us honest advice and was patient with us. The work was done to a really high standard and Ian went above and beyond. Our garden has been transformed. I would highly recommend Bartley groundworks to anyone considering getting their garden landscaped."

Highly recommend

"I have no hesitation in recommending Liam and his colleagues. They are timely, neat, thorough, kept me involved with all decision-making but also used their knowledge to make recommendations. I used money that I had inherited to fund this project and so it meant the world to me and these guys delivered! Thanks again …"

Removed block paving patio and replaced with sandstone paving slabs. Spot on.

"We decided to use Liam and his team based on a recommendation from a neighbour of ours. Liam's communication before the work began was good and when he gave us the estimate he explained the reasoning behind it and how it was broken down. The actual work started earlier in the year than expected and Liam checked with us first to see that it would be ok to do so. He arrived promptly each day, tidied up at the end of each day and the finished job is exactly as we requested and expected. A very neat and tidy piece of work. His team were also polite and courteous throughout and consulted with us before making any adjustments to the final design. Overall, very pleased."

"Outstanding work and people. They came in and did a job that was asked with no fuss at all. Liam and the team worked hard. I would and will be using them again."


08 Oct 2021

Amazing Company to work with!

"We were recommended to use Bartley's and I have to say I am over the moon with the work that's been done. Ian and Andy work hard, they coped with the changes we made as the work was being done. Ian's ability to visualise the end result and guide us in the changes was amazing, his attention to detail is meticulous giving a result beyond what we expected, as the garden and drive are the most awkward shape!!!! Liam's communication from quote to invoice has been seamless, it's been a pleasure working with a local family run business. We have been telling everyone about the quality of work. Thank you doesn't come close. Terry & Jeni, Groby"

New Patio and Garden Work

"The patio is superb and Liam and his team did a brilliant job. We are delighted. also, the sleepers installed up the garden have made the are look so much better and tidier. Excellent.....this is the BEST job ever in our garden."


14 Sep 2021

Amazing Transformation!

"I would 100% recommend Bartley Groundworks & Paving for the professionalism and work done. I have already recommended to a friend who’s looking to have her garden landscaped.

From day one Liam was reliable and always stuck to deadlines for visits, quotes and scheduling work etc.

The job was completed by Ian and Andy who were super hardworking, listened, suggested and adapted to fit e.g. originally we were due to have steps but after mentioning about mobility issues in the family, Ian suggested a ramp which worked perfectly. Both Ian and Andy were great to have around giving me tips about lawn care and other things.

The transformation from wasteland front garden to a practical, safe and grassed area we can enjoy as a family (with an additional area to park at the side!) is amazing! It took a while to feel like it was our front garden!

Thank you all for your hard work it’s made such a difference!"


07 Sep 2021

The whole Job was completed within three days with minimal fuss and beautifully finished. Thank you to Liam and his team. They were reliable and punctual and did a fantastic Job. Thank you soon much."

Going above and beyond - Great job!!

"Friendly, reliable, thoughtful & hardworking. Spent time with me to discuss and assess the job I needed doing to ensure done properly. Liam called with details of his quote & started work on the arranged day as planned. The work was carried out to a very high standard with the Ian & Andy going above and beyond to complete job in a timely manner, also updating me regularly. I am very happy with the very well finished job and would have no hesitation in using again or recommending services to others."


09 Jul 2021

Brazilian slate paving and new lawn - excellent experience - highly recommended!

"Liam was incredibly professional and knowledgeable from our first meeting right the way through to completion. When we first met, it was clear he knew his stuff and gave us some great ideas. He sent his quote over when he said he would and gave us some options around materials. Once we accepted the quote he was then on the case keeping us informed about a start date - he actually started two days earlier than originally planned which is testament to his planning. The materials Liam used and the work Liam and his team carried out was excellent, but his customer service was also outstanding. We have a house with a shared access alley way and Liam struck up a great rapport with our neighbours, which was really great as there was lots of fetching / carrying / noise. I would highly recommend Liam and the team - real craftsmen and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you! :)"


29 Jun 2021

Great professional job

"I got slabs, sleepers and Aco drains put down in my garden. Ian and Andy have done a great job. Very professional and clean job. Liam (owner) was really easy and professional to deal with and provided very good advise and ideas. Would highly recommend. They estimated the job would take three weeks, but were done in two."


21 Jun 2021

New patio and lawn

"Hassle free experiance from quote to finish. Very happy with the end result. Great communication throughout the job. A job well done and i would highly reccomend using liam and the team."


01 Jun 2021

Excellent Service

"We found Liam on and was impressed by his website. As he was local to us we decided to give him a call. His response was quick and we arranged a date for him to have a look at our garden. We were impressed with his manner, listened to our desires and offered advice ,deciding on the work to be quoted for. The quote was broken down for us so we could see what on and where our money was going. After comparing him to other quotes we decided to go ahead and a 3 week window for the work was arranged. He kept in touch and both Liam and Scott arrived on time, on the day arranged and every day after. They both kept us informed on a daily basis as to the work being done and work completed that day. We are very happy with the final patio, Liam and Scott provided an excellent service and would highly recommend them to anyone. I would, definitely, consider using them again. 1 word of advice is to get in touch with him asap as he gets booked up very quickly."


11 May 2021

Outstanding work!

"I decided to contact Liam and the team, after seeing a driveway Bartley Groundworks & Paving had completed down the road from us. After making contact, Liam provided a swift response, visited us to provide a quote and then kept in regular contact to arrange start dates etc. I have been so impressed with the driveway itself (we love it!), but have to say I've also been so impressed with how Liam and the team have been considerate of other residents, their attention to detail (Liam carefully used stones and paving stones for the manhole cover, which is positioned partly over our neighbours' drive and you can hardly notice it's there!) and how friendly the team is! It's been a pleasure to have the team here. I had a few quotes before opting for Bartley Groundworks and I found the price was more than reasonable in comparison. Even more so, when you look at the quality of the work compared to other competitors. 100% satisfied with all of the work. Thanks to Liam & the team."


15 Apr 2021

Liam’s is very talented, knowledgeable and professional. His attention to detail, and work is amazing. I would 100% recommend him and would not hesitate to use him again 😃

"From the time we sent the first message, to the last day of the project, every touchpoint with Liam was flawless. After our initial message, we arranged a time for him to see the garden, discuss the details and measure up. We had asked him to break up the quote into various parts to help us make the best choice for our budget. To help Liam visualise exactly what we wanted, I sent over a digital mock up of our chosen design. After we received a quote, we discussed the project further via text. This was very helpful as it allowed us to communicate asynchronously, and it also served a reference if needed. Liam was very helpful discussing every aspect of the project. He provided great advice and guidance every step of the way. He suggested he could provide the slabs, but was also happy for us to use our own supplier. Not once did he push us to use his supplier. Due to the grid pattern we had chosen, it was important everything lined up. Liam understood the importance of this and took his time to get it right first time. We were consulted whenever there was a possible deviation from the design, or when anything may have compromised the visual aesthetics. Liam’s passion for his craft and attention to detail is phenomenal. This is very refreshing to see, especially in an industry where most people are worried about getting the job done as cheap and fast as possible. He didn’t rush any part of the project, taking pride in everything from laying the foundation to clearing up at the end. Liam is very popular, so I would advise getting booked in as early as possible. We were lucky, as someone decided to cancel a job, so Liam managed to fit us in earlier than anticipated. I have no hesitation in recommending Liam. Great work, well done 👍."

Great work

"Liam did a fabulous job of our drive and path. As well as reliable high quality work, he was very responsive, returning our quote quickly, discussing alternatives and keeping up great communication throughout."


18 Mar 2021

Great people and great service!

"Liam came to quote for us in summer 2020 and due to high demand was not available until November however this was no issue for us and shows just how highly sought after him and his team are! The work was completed within the quoted time frame they were very tidy and clean during and at the end of each day leaving everywhere tidy. We are really pleased with how our patio has turned out. After a couple of days and some rain we realised there were a couple of slabs with hairline cracks which you could not see on the slabs when dry. I messaged Liam and he came the next day to replace these for us with no issues! I have recommended Liam and his team to others already! Can’t wait to use the patio once the weather is a little warmer."


18 Mar 2021

Outstanding Garden Transformation

"Having seen the results of Bartley Groundworks & Paving’s work on their website & socials I had no hesitation in asking them to transform my garden. I asked them to supply and install a patio, hardwearing turf, block paving boarder around the turf and finish with a Cotswold edging. We are absolutely delighted with the transformation of our garden. Liam and his team are excellent, always helpful, always polite, nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Highly Recommended!"

Great work and thank you once again !

Flawless … start to finish

Very please with the results of the work undertaken

"I am very please with both of the jobs undertaken by Bartley Groundworks and Paving. At the initial visit we discussed my wishes. Some alterations and adaptions were suggested for me to consider and I was given options for the materials to be used. A final plan was then agreed. Liam was very knowledgeable, friendly and polite. The jobs started when planned and finished quicker than estimated. Liam and Scott arrived on time every day. We had a meeting daily to discuss what was happening that day and in the next few days and this gave me an opportunity to let the neighbours, who are like many of us working at home at the moment, know that there could be some noise at certain times on certain days. I am very pleased with the end result of both jobs and would not hesitate to recommend Bartley Groundworks and Paving. It may be a while before you are able to schedule the job into their busy calendar but I would say it is well worth the wait."

Outstanding work on garden and driveway

"I recently had my garden slabbed and tarmaced by Bartley Groundworks & Paving and I am really pleased with the quality of the work and service provided by them. The finish of the stabbing and garden could not be better. Liam and Scott both provided a professional service, they turned up on time and every day until the job was finished and always informed us step by step with what they had planned. They really have attention for detail, I was so pleased to use them, as the finish of the garden was better than I expected. My family have already booked them for their garden. I would definitely recommend them."

07 Aug 2020

Amazing, total transformation of the garden, very, very happy customer, Big Thanks to Liam and Scot.

"Our whole garden was made of wooden decking, it was impossible to use, because all the wood was rotten. There is no normal access to the garden, but Liam and his company found a quick solution. The new garden from scratch was designed by Liam. In just one day, the entire old fence and decking was dismantled and disposed - WOW. In only eight days, the entire project was completed, a new fence, new landscape from Indian stones and a masking fence from the neighbor's side. We are very pleased with Bartley Groundworks & Paving, the highest level of workmanship, attention to detail, very friendly approach, very helpful and very clean work, clean every day after finishing. If you are looking for a reliable company that cares about image and details, you will not find a better one across Leicestershire, we recommend 1000%."

06 Aug 2020

New driveway, great service, would highly recommend.

"An excellent experience having our driveway completed by Bartley Groundworks & Paving. From quote to completion Liam has been friendly, informative and professional. I was most impressed by the frequent updates and chats where he explained his reasoning and included us in the decision making to ensure it fulfilled our expectations. I would highly recommend Liam and his company."

23 Jun 2020

A great looking patio in a short time at a resonable price!

"Liam and his colleague were punctual and worked to a high standard. The area was always left clean and tidy at the end of each day, and social distancing was observed, we provided their own tea/coffee area and separate toilet! Liam works well with the customer and provides what you ask for, we had a new patio and Liam edged it with existing pavers so it would blend in with the rest of the garden! A great job in a good time frame at a good price, would recommend him for anyone who needs work done!"

18 May 2020

Transformed from bog to stunning patio

"The work was carried out exactly to specification, the patio looks fantastic. They left absolutely no mess and I am delighted with the finished results. Liam and Ian have transformed by boggy garden by installing a 37 sq m patio with drainage. A very happy customer and would have no hesitation in recommending them for this work."

16 May 2020

Superb Work

"Liam and his team have just completed a block paved driveway which far exceeded expectations. He provided a detailed quote, kept me up to date on product samples and the start time. He also offered practical solutions to my ideas. On time everyday , worked hard, and kept the site clean and tidy. A great job, great guys, competitive price. Very highly recommended for quality workmanship and price -a very satisfied customer. Many Thanks Liam."

Excellent friendly service

"Liam and his team did a fantastic job in laying some slabs for us for a new shed. He was always very communicative and replied promptly and arrived in excellent time when he said he would. Always polite and courteous and called to offer advice. The finished work is of an extremely high standard and I would highly recommend. We'll be getting Liam back to quote on further work in the summer."

"Liam was very good at keeping in touch and coming up with ideas. The work was finished quickly and to a good standard and everything was left clean and tidy. The patio looks great, I would recommend Bartley Groundwork’s and Paving."

05 Feb 2020

Good Job but a little cleaner?

"Liam was good from start to last with his communication. he did two different jobs for us. One a drain connection for a new WC. which was successful but left somewhat messy on walls. He then took on our mid garden patio plan on a raised bed given that the garden was raised plus sloping to a good degree. Within 3 days he has left us with the backbone of a good hard landscape plot for us to develop into our plan for a Tuscan / Italian quadrants plots for planting. I am very happy with the work he and Luke did - however one small negative is - Please clean the paths / walls and drive as you found it - important for older people. It is a dirty job but attention should still be paid to how you leave the site?"

29 Jan 2020

New driveway

"Really pleased with our finished driveway. Liam and his team worked hard every day, always arriving when they stated they would.

"Liam Is extremely good, I could not fault his work or commitment, his communication skills are also extremely good, if there were any queries he was in touch asking questions & offering advice prior to advancing the project.

Is 6 stars possible??

"If you like straight lines, quality work and a decent price, then Liam is your man. Our garden had concrete bases at different heights totalling 45sqm. Our project also had uneven walls round the edges. I asked Liam to try and create a single level with a slight incline towards an Aco drain. This was no easy project, but Liam and his team did an amazingly brilliant job, completing all my requirements in a short space of time. Start to finish the entire project only took 6 days. They were very neat and tidy once they left. Highly recommend these guys."
