Joseph Rooney JNR DRIVEWAYS & LANDSCAPING LIMITED J N R LANDSCAPING LTD This bunch of cowboys have a history of terrible or unfinished work, damaging property, things mysteriously vanishing when their on site. They don't even bring their own tools and they'll steal yours if they can get their hands on them. And lets not forget the threats of violence that all customers get if they don't pay up for unfinished work.

Forget the fake reviews below
Forget the fake reviews below, the truth about this company is pure incompetence. You can tell the reviews are fake because they suggest that they paid in advance for work which was subsequently completed. This doesn't happen with these guys. Once the money leaves your hand (and they only accept cash as they don't have a bank account) you will never see them again. I messaged some of their other customers after they disappeared on me with my money and it looks like I'm not the only one. Someone really needs to get these people shut down.

A Great Job at a Reasonable Price
In stark contrast to criticisms and comments made about this company by some reviewers, I can only give praise to JNR Driveways & Landscaping Ltd. The standard of their work, quality of materials used, timing throughout the job and well supervised enthusiastic workmen resulted in a block paved driveway which exceeded our expectations. In addition to being pedantic about the looks of a finished job, I also have good technical knowledge of the groundwork requirements for long lasting block paved surfaces and would urge everyone to pay particular attention to this aspect more than any other. All newly laid block paving will look lovely but it is only several years later when the sub-standard quality of the work underneath is revealed as gaps and dips start to appear. Our project was made particularly challenging by its design, the unusual blocks we had chosen, the necessity for bi-directional gradients and drainage requirements. The company owner, Joseph Rooney, took time to study and understand what was wanted before coming up with a detailed written quotation which included a long term guarantee. There was some negotiation on the quoted price but as a matter of principle, I have no interest in having work done without a profit being made otherwise skimping on the job becomes inevitable. I must add here that no up-front money was asked for. In fact, without being requested at all, the quotation stated no deposit was required and payment made on completion to the customer’s satisfaction. This again is contrary to the very critical remarks I have read elsewhere about payment issues. Work started at the agreed time and proceeded at an impressive pace. As the job progressed it was kept on schedule by the arrival of various plant just when required with no down-time in waiting. I learned that JNR have the advantage of owning much of their equipment so can get it deployed as and where it is needed. Several loads of soil were removed immediately after excavation to keep the site uncluttered and prevent damage to grassed areas. My regular inspections of the works were encouraged so I could be shown that all the set high standards were being met. On nearing completion of the block paving, Mr. Rooney was asked to also undertake some landscaping work in the rear garden which, like the block paved drive, was again completed to our entire satisfaction and for a reasonable price. Our newly block paved drive has been much admired by neighbours and by-passers and with us knowing the standard to which it was laid, we would gladly recommend Mr Joseph Rooney and his company. Based on our experience we are unable to accept the negative comments by some reviewers as being credible. Also noted is that one individual in particular has made disproportionately immense efforts to discredit the man and his company as if it might be a personal vendetta. We feel a more balanced and practical view of JNR Driveways & Landscaping is appropriate. So we have happily granted Mr. Rooney permission to give his prospective clients our telephone number should they wish to discuss any aspect of their contemplations. You will be making a big investment and living with it for a long time so you would be welcome to come and have a look. We would also be pleased to share our knowledge irrespective of who you might finally decide on to do the job. JNR are expanding their business into home improvements and they will certainly be our first call for any work of this kind we need done in future.

The Joe Rooney I met must be a different man to the person described on this and other sites. I admit he was needing the money as we went along with the projects but every request was understandable - from the machinery to the 5-10 workers he had working daily and the building materials he needed to do the job. He was there every step of the way. Hats off to him for completing a 150m squared driveway with a boundary wall in 3 days!!!

This company is a complete fraud.
This company is a complete fraud. The company owner Joseph N Rooney will lie about the work he is capable of doing, will lie about the work he intends to do and when challenged about the quality, will threaten you and your property with violence. Not to paint all gypsies in the same light but he lives on a caravan site where he gets all his workers from. Most of them don't speak English and/or are special needs. He is a lazy incompetent man who doesn't attend site to instruct his workers and the work they do is poor quality as a result. He introduces hidden extras that haven't been quoted for and then demands payment under threats of violence. He will also demand payment for uncompleted work. The photographs in the website are not from his own company. They are beyond the quality he is capable of delivering. They will not provide references under any circumstances even though they will promise this. They dump waste locally with no regard for the environment and expect the council to clean it up. DO NOT trust this man under any circumstances. He behaves like a man who wants to his life behind bars. Their reviews are so bad they have asked to be banned from yell.com and other business review sites to prevent prospective customers from finding out about them.
