Many thanks to Shaun, Darren and the whole team who have transformed our tired patio, including laying resin throughout, installing raised beds and laying summer house base. The team did a great job in challenging weather conditions.
We are very pleased with our resin bound driveway. It looks great and has very neat edges. The installation team were tidy, friendly and professional. The price was competitive, the resin-bound surface laying went well. We had a large area done by Peterborough Improvements 2 years ago and this was their second job for us.

Excellent service as always from Shaun and the team. This time Simon and his mate replaced a very tired and battered front garden fence with a new wooden one with concrete posts..Great job! In a few weeks time they will be installing another resin bound driveway, this time replacing the gravelled area on part of… Read more “Excellent service as always from Shaun and the team”

However, within a month a crack had appeared not to mention the weeds. The crack seriously deteriorated and the company failed to accept any… Read more “Thank you Peterborough Improvements”
Shaun and his team could not have done a better job with our driveway than they have. The Resin was most certainly the best option for us, it looks stunning and took just a few days to install from start to finish even with us deciding to change all the edging blocks.
Great service and workmanship, listened to our needs and fantastic end result! We now have space for 3 cars on what was a one car drive and new railings to mark the boundary. Couldn’t recommend enough.
