Chris really understands walls - his team has rebuilt a conventional one and a dry-stone one with great results, and they offered the level of skill and care on-site that you want to see.

Chris and his team at Golden Stones have recently completed a garden redesign for us involving laying a new patio, lawn and also some fencing, and the results are first class! The works were quoted for promptly and started on the agreed date. The on site team, Anthony and George, were absolutely fantastic from start to finish. They were always on time and carried out the work to an exceptionally high standard with a keen eye for detail. They were such a pleasure to have around and always left the area clean and tidy so we could continue to live as normally as possible during the renovation. A massive thank you to both of you for all of your efforts. You are more than welcome to drop in for coffee anytime you like! We would use Golden Stones again in the future without hesitation!

I have known Chris for a long time and always been impressed by his “can do” attitude. He was very helpful with his time, effort and expertise when I was building my own decking and raised beds in my garden. We were able to achieve a very high spec decking platform for my greenhouse and as a seating area. Nothing is too much trouble for Chris and he has now been commissioned to build a gazebo for us next month. I have no doubt this will be of excellent quality and craftsmanship. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Golden Stones carried out a three week project to upgrade our patios and front garden. Chris, the owner, was excellent in helping design the project and then ensure that the project was completed to plan, budget and agreed timescales. The on-site team were a pleasure to deal with - always on time, always polite and keen to help and provide advice. Each day they left the site tidy and organised. The result was a transformation of our outdoor space, delivered professionally and to high standards - I wouldn't hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others.

Thanks to Nic, Val, Eugen and a few others who I didn't catch their names, I now have a driveway and retaining walls my neighbours look at with envy! Such a hardworking team, who solved problems as they went along but always consulting me or getting Chris back on site. Would highly recommended them all (though make sure you have plenty of coffee ready as they will get through your suppliers very quickly 😂)

Golden Stones did an outstanding job on landscaping that included laying very old, irregular and challenging flag stones. Their team was incredibly hard working and a pleasure to have on site. The work was completed in super quick time and we especially appreciated the design suggestions and improvements.Their attention to detail is to be commended. Thank you

Chris and the team just replaced two fence runs for us, one with concrete posts and gravel boards (complete with hedgehog holes!), and the other with wood. Very impressed with how quick and efficient they were, finishing the whole job in just over a day. The result is exactly what we'd agreed with a high quality finish, and I think they left the garden tidier than when they arrived! One of our neighbours had good things to say about Chris after some garden re-modelling he did for them a while back, and we'd also highly recommend him.

Chris and his team have done several jobs for me, the latest being a wildlife pond. I know I can rely on good advice and excellent workmanship. All members of the team are polite and hardworking. They take a pride in their work. I would recommend them for any garden projects.

Landscape Gardeners in Stroud, Tetbury & The Cotswolds for over 20 years

I have been the proud owner of Golden Stones for the past 20 years based in Stroud. Growing up on a farm in Horsley / Nailsworth in the Five Valleys I developed my love for the outdoors helping out on the farm finding myself building or fixing dry stone walls and cutting grass and growing crops.

Somehow I found myself joining Gloucestershire Constabulary where I would work for the next 19 years eventually finishing up as a Dog Handler. The shift pattern meant that I soon started Goldenstones to keep me occupied on my midweek days off.  Within 3 months I was employing my first member of staff and it rapidly progressing from there.

The police showed me how there were some awful tradespeople out there and they literally rob vulnerable or naive customers of their life savings for a very sub-standard job. Having worked closely with Trading Standards on one such job I became aware of the “Buy with Confidence” scheme they ran. I became the first landscape gardener in Gloucestershire to be audited and approved by Trading Standards. I felt good old fashioned trust to do what you were advertising was very important.
