We had John and his amazing team construct our 22m long, 1.5m high concrete sleeper retaining wall. The team were highly knowledgeable, skilled, friendly and efficient. Throughout the process we were highly impressed how quickly they were able to deliver the construction of the wall and to such a high standard. The team were mindful of other services needing to go under the wall (water and power) and allowed for this in the construction design. You don’t have to worry about contractors holding you up on your build if you go with these guys, Dixon excavations will be in and out before you know it, couldn’t have asked for a better business to do the work. Highly recommend to anyone wanting a reliable tradesman.
