"Neil and his team have carried out numerous projects at Austin House. We've always found him to be competitive, reliable, and professional. Their work has always been carried out to the highest standard and the walling is always being commented upon by passers-by. I can thoroughly recommend this company."

"NC Stone Walling are a professional company that take pride in delivering a quality result. They have offered excellent advice when we needed input to our initial ideas. We have now used them a number of times and they would be our first choice for further stone/landscape work."
- Mr. and Mrs. McDermott in Parbold
"Dear Neil, Thank you very much for the work that you and your team completed at our house. We found you to be professional, reliable, and trustworthy. All members of the team were polite, pleasant, and hardworking. The work was completed within the allocated time, with all the team usually working from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. At the conclusion of the job, the site was thoroughly cleaned, and we were invited to inspect every detail prior to the team leaving. We are very pleased with the finished job and would have no hesitation in recommending you. Best wishes"

"Dear Neil, I just wanted to put on record my thanks for the efforts you and your team made when building my wall in the summer. It makes a refreshing change, when dealing with the building world, to have a company that delivers a quality service on time and within budget. Your work has dramatically enhanced our property and has created a great deal of interest from passing traffic. I found your team to be extremely hard working, courteous, and conscientious. This was illustrated by one of them almost working himself into a state of heat exhaustion during the summer's very hot spell in his determination to achieve the objectives set and not let either you or me down. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to future potential customers, but would warn them that they should have a plentiful supply of biscuits, which we found to be highly motivational! Kind regards"
"The Highest Calibre”
"We first commissioned Neil in 2000 to build a 2m-high, largely sandstone stone wall for our garden. It included a stone archway through to the field, an arched window, and two arched alcoves. (Though not an artist, I did a crude sketch on a piece of cardboard). Completed in early 2001, it was exactly what we asked for. It was a double wall, built on the batter, with hand-hewn coping stones, and resembled a drystone wall in many ways. It was, and still is, lovely to look at, whether it's raining or sunny. 12 or more years later - somewhat tired of having to replace very unlovely and clattery wooden fences after the latest gale - we asked Neil to continue the wall along the back of the garden and back up to the house. We count ourselves very fortunate that he was available. With Neil's help, we managed to locally source 50 tonnes of stone very similar to the stone we sourced before. After a year or so, with weathering, the extension will look just the same as the earlier wall. Neil completed the second phase at the end of January 2014, and we are again delighted. Neil is an artist and craftsman of the highest calibre. Just watch and marvel as he chooses each stone individually, and individually shapes it, glovelessly, and places it carefully into position; just watch as he works away in whatever weather to create a wall which will probably outlast you and me by a few generations and will always be a joy to behold. Neil supplies you with accurate and transparent quotations and estimates. His prices, then and now, seem to us very fair, and we have no hesitation in recommending him. He is also a pleasure to have around. Expect a steady, careful, and thorough job to be done. Have a good idea of what you would like, and try to stick to it. If you do commission Neil, please keep him supplied with tea and coffee about once an hour - believe me, he deserves it; he's a treasure. So, the bottom line again: if you would like a beautiful stone wall round your property, or part of your property, contact Neil Carson and see when (if) he's available."

"Dear Neil, Martin, and Andy, Thank you all for the stunning work that you have just completed on our home. You have widened the entrance to our driveway and rebuilt the original pillars to such an exacting specification that it looks as if it was built that way when the house was first constructed. Everybody has been admiring your work and we feel that it has most certainly enhanced our home and its value. Everybody was polite, courteous, extremely skilled, and took a real pride in their work and end result. The site was cleaned to a state better than it was when you first arrived, and it was a pleasure to have you working on our home. Your success is well-deserved, and with your skill and customer service, you will continue to thrive. Many, many thanks again."
