Garry Smith - EKS Construction

Garry Smith
Director, EKS Construction 


I have known Garry Smith for six years now. I first met him when I had an access ramp installed through a Disability Facilities Grant given to me by Fenland District Council in 2006. Whilst Garry was carrying out the work, I asked if he could design and lay a patio for me, as I was so impressed with his work.

In 2011, I needed the whole of my front garden to be dug up to accommodate a large drive for my new adapted car. Again this was done with the aid of a Disability Facilities Grant. Garry/EKS has done a super job and I am very pleased indeed.

I have no hesitation in recommending Garry’s company EKS Construction, for all groundworks. They are clean and tidy and take a pride in their work, the quality of which is outstanding. Garry and those who work for him are extremely trustworthy and friendly a quality which is hard to find these days.

Patios & decking

If you invest in a new patio it’s important that it looks right, is made from the right materials and is built in a way that will ensure years of use. These are the objectives we have when we create patios for our customers.

Paving slabs

Paving slabs are the most frequent choice for patios, available in many styles including some that look just like old stone. Paving slabs also often cost less than block paving and the two can be combined in a single design.

Block paving

Block paving can be a useful alternative to paving slabs because of its durability. When properly installed it won’t crack or shift and it has great flexibility in terms of design options. Read more about block paving.


Decking can also be used to create attractive patios and we use high quality decking materials to ensure yours will be attractive and durable.

Designing and installing all of the above patio types requires skill and experience if it is to be done properly. Thanks to our credentials as groundworks specialists we can in particular ensure your new patio has a firm base for maximum stability and long life.
