    "I hired this company to build a retaining wall for me. The job did not go well from day one and it kept going. The wall is not straight and one post is so far out of align it looks horrible. The whole job was mismanaged. Colin was hardly ever there, overseeing other work. His team were good workers but needed a leader. Short cuts to the soil engineering plan were taken which caused lost time when they had to be redone. I eventually took over the site foreman role myself to ensure at least the back fill was done on time. Promised fill that was meant to arrive never did and I was lucky I had a big sloping section and we could take fill from my own property.

    Damage to a stone gate post was never repaired despite Colin saying he would.

    I would recommend definately not using this contractor for big jobs

    "C&K Farrell built some retaining walls and poured a new concrete pad and drive. The concreting was okay but the retaining walls were horrific. None of the three were straight (one wall had a post that was so far out they had to shove more timber in behind it so it supported the wall), another wall still has a visible bow in it, posts driven too deep and pieces nailed on top to make them the right height, posts driven too far apart, needing re-engineering. All walls left looking like a dogs breakfast. Attitude was slack and no responsibility was taken for the appalling quality of work. Tried to address this at the end of the job and Colin shafted us again. No compensation. No apology. We wouldn't recommend these guys at all."

    "Colin did a beautiful job on the fence and retaining wall. I have recommended him to a couple of other people.
    He finished the work fairly quickly and used good materials.
    Small issue is that he is old school and so it is best to call him on his mobile as he doesn\'t do text and emails.
    Otherwise, no issues at all.
