"Landcraft have recently completed the hard and soft landscaping works at the new 350m specialist and critical care centre in Cwmbran South Wales. During the tender process and throughout the build period Tony and David worked tirelessly with both Laing O Rourke and the Client to generate the right environment for such a sensitive facility ensuring at project completion the planting was fully established and the new build seamlessly blended into the surrounding landscape. During difficult times when the Covid pandemic restrictions were enforced, and in order to support the NHS Landcraft ensured that they completed critical areas of landscaping so the facility could be opened 12 months early and releasing the whole ward block. The project is now fully completed with zero defects which is a testament to the Landcraft Management and workforce"

"Landcraft Projects have looked after landscaping maintenance here since Cardiff Audi moved to this new site on the Cardiff Gate Business Park in 2006. Their visits have always been regular, and we hardly know their team is on site when they are here - they have never caused any disruption whatsoever. On those occasions when additional works have been required, carrying out on site a survey visit and completion of the works have always taken place very speedily.

Our confidence continues to grow with Barry and Phil and last year they diversified the basic contract we have them and they constructed a 4 x 4 display area at the front of our premises which we have been extremely pleased and impressed with.

They also responded very quickly to some urgent maintenance we required a few weeks ago in readiness for an Audi UK visit.

We are regularly approached by other suppliers, but Landcrafts great quality of service mean that I am never given cause to even seek an alternative quote. Everybody that works at Landcraft are great ambassadors for the business. I am cautious with my recommendations as they can often backfire on you, but I would never hesitate to recommend Landcraft"
John Spriggs, Head of Business - Cardiff Audi. (February 2016)

"Landcraft were engaged at an early stage on the Penarth Learning Community project to help us and the client find the most affordable scheme. It was almost 18 months later before we actually planted anything and during this time the input and expert advice which we received from Landcraft was invaluable. Even when the works started and the budget had to be further reduced Landcraft worked tirelessly to find the right solution. The completed project looks fantastic! In addition to this Landcraft actively bought into the community ethos of the project which included work days for the pupils planting trees and the upgrade of the forest school area in the feeder school adjacent to the new site."

Phil Jones, Branch Manager - AAH Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (May 2013)

"Landcraft have recently completed the hard and soft landscaping contract on the 12.7M new build Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service Unit at the Princess of Wales Hospital, Bridgend, for BAM Construction Ltd. Landcraft have performed excellently on the project, having met all programme requirements with a skilled, sizeable, own workforce which allowed quick reaction to weather-related progress opportunities. The quality achieved on the external works are very high with self-snagging of finishes as works progressed, culminating with their contract works being delivered with zero defects at project handover to the client. The integral maintenance capability offered by Landcraft resulted in them taking the required level of care with the soft landscaping during the latter part of the contract period and following handover. All in all, Landcraft have been a pleasure to work with and have delivered an excellent end product of which the Client and BAM are very pleased. So much so, the project has been entered for the Building Better Healthcare Awards - Best Landscape External Space."
Dylan Hammett, Project Manager - BAM Construction. (July 2011)
"Although not commissioned until late September 2008, Landcraft were instrumental in ensuring that all the works were carried out by the start of the Dormice hibernation period (31st October 2008). The failure to achieve this deadline would have stopped any works commencing on the site until the end of the Dormice hibernation period (May 2009), and would have ultimately delayed the Park & Ride project."
Tim Howells, Principal Engineer - Cardiff County Council.
"The Cardiff Castle forecourt project was a great success. The work was completed on time in spite of many changes to requirements. Site staff and management were always cooperative to achieve a successful conclusion. Quality of work was excellent and the final account was agreed quickly and amicably.

Their site management and public relations were very good, and the work was completed on time. Our experience of using Landcraft in Belle Vue Park has led us on to invite them to tender for a number of other projects, including a new Friary Garden which is also to be constructed in Belle Vue Park. Their tender was successful, and construction of the garden which includes an Edwardian pergola will be undertaken in spring 2006."
