Patio construction with new steps, retaining walls, brickwork and drainage. (BR2)
Fost and Co. Have exceeded our expectations with their exceptional work. Our patio has been transformed with new paving, retaining walls and steps, thanks to Nick and his team's impeccable design advice and practical solutions. Alan and Joshua worked tirelessly throughout the project, keeping us updated on progress and ensuring client satisfaction. The building work was carried out with great care, and the finish, particularly the paving, was excellent. We appreciated the personalized touch of a family-run business with the added benefit of their ability to call in additional labour as needed,
No quote provided (DA14)
Nick called round to inspect my property and take my requirements on 27/09/22, very quickly after my call. He told me I'd get the quote in a week, but when I didn't receive the quote as promised I called and was told he's busy and it would be another week before I got the quote. I called again today, 10/10/22 and have been again told the quote isn't ready. They might be busy, but this isn't very good customer service and not a good look for Fost and Co. Perhaps it's best I haven't received a quote if this is the service they provide? Will be interesting to see if this review gets posted!
Cleared and renewed the driveway. Rebuilt a wall (BR3)
Very impressed by the whole team at Fost and Co. From the detailed quote, to the hardworking and skilled team, coordination of deliveries and rubbish clearing and the end result. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!
New driveway and landscaping (BR4)
We have just had our driveway completed by Fost and Co and what a fantastic job they did - we are so happy with their work and would highly recommend their services. The boys worked so hard throughout their time with us and their attention to detail was fantastic including their support to us when designing the new drive and landscaping. Thanks to Nick, Alan, Matt and Joshua for a great job!
Patio and artificial lawn laid. (BR2)
Nick and his team were absolutely brilliant. A very professional company who put time and effort into their work. The work carried out took just over a week to complete and the workmen involved were prompt, reliable, hardworking and very trustworthy. These being Alan and sunny. Would highly recommend.
Brick driveway with an underground soakaway. (BR2)
Our crazy paving driveway was removed, the area extended and a huge soakaway cage with drains installed under a brick driveway. We had changed our minds about having resin and the soakaway was needed. It looks great and Nick’s team worked tirelessly. Would definitely recommend them. A fair price too for such skilled work.

Drive way, garden patio and ground works. (BR5)
Having finally finished the inside of our family home, we needed someone to apply the finish touches to the outside of our property. Work we had completed 1) New drive way 2) Garden decking 3) Garden patio 4) Artificial grass After a tireless search we decided to go with Fost and Co because we found Nick to be very transparent. Nick presented us with a number of options and explained the Pro's and Con's to each, unlike some companies who try to shoehorn you into their plans. His workers are punctual, the price was fair and the job was finished around the agreed time.
New driveway, raised beds, pathways, doorstep and lawn area (TN14)
Work carried out was to completely replace our front area. This involved replacing two worn out driveways, and rebuilding surrounding raised beds from scratch. New sandstone paths and steps were added. Also an area of lawn was laid. Nick and his team were extremely professional throughout. There was a high attention to detail and clear communication. The standard of work was high and we are very satisfied with the results. Would definitely recommend them for any driveway or landscaping job.
Block Paving Drive replacement to the existing drive and extending the overall size. (Bromley)
Very pleased. All the boys who worked were helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The weather was particularly bad on a few days but they kept going. Would recommend.
New driveway, front wall, fencing, side gates (BR1)
Nick and his team were a joy to deal with. For a quick explanation of what it’s like to deal with them I’d say: On time On budget Professional The team were well turned out in company branded workwear, vans, this professional approach carried through to how they carry themselves onsite in their day to day work to back office invoicing etc. We have recommended them on numerous occasions and I would definitely use again.
New rear patio, new front drive, new paths and lawn (Bromley)
Always reliable, polite, early arrival every day, organised, tidy. Standard of work extremely high, always happy to add, change adapt to requests. Our work took sometime to complete and could not have used a better company, would recommend Fost and Co anytime.
Superb from start to finish. Work involved knocking down a garage and a complete re work of the garden. New fence, patio and lawn. Stuck to the quote and spec. Fast work yet still very tidy. Outstanding communication from nick throughout which ensured no stress throughout the works. Can’t recommend highly enough. They will be back to do my front garden in the future.
New patio with porcelain tiles, new lawn and plants with lights around the fence. (Bromley)
The team delivered the finished garden above our expectations. Nick was very patient when we were going through various samples to pick the right tile. Once we confirmed our choice, he got things planned out but the lockdown delayed the start. However, we stayed in touch and finally we got things going after lockdown. The team did a great job from start to finish, constantly engaging us wherever decisions were needed. True professionals. The left the place very neat and tidy and on the last day after new turf was laid, we had to celebrate with some bubblies with Team for a job well done!
Redesign of patio and retaining wall using sandstone slabs and bricks (Keston)
I am delighted with my new patio and have received many compliments as to its design and finish. Covid prevented me from agreeing to start the project when agreed but Nick could not have been more accommodating in fitting me in again so I would have the patio for the summer. The guys were a pleasure to have on site and ensured I was happy with the work at every stage and explained what would happen next.
Front garden renovation work (Keston)
Amazing transformation of my front garden. The walls surrounding it were knocked down and rebuilt. The garden was then finished to a perfect standard using artificial grass, with a slate surround and a pretty lattice fence. They also did some extra work without charge including connecting an outside tap and partially rebuilding a wall which wasn’t part of the quote. Very friendly and nice team, excellent workmanship

From start to finish all members of the team showed a high level of expertise and care of our property.
Brazilian slate patio, artificial grass and bespoke fencing (London)
Everything was immaculate. The workers were so nice and friendly and tidied all there mess. They used the outside gate to come through the house, to ensure they didn’t create extra mess inside. The finished job was perfect, I couldn’t fault it or feel the need to change anything. Really impressed with the work and would definitely recommend to family and friends.
