Happy user

Just completed the drainage on my lawn using your DIY guide, must say it was simple to follow, still hard work, but what a difference. My boys can play on the lawn again, and I did save a lot of money. I found the gravel calculator really useful, ended up with a bit left over but probably my calculation.

Thanks again and for the chat on the phone (well worth a tenner)
