About Graveltech

Our Background / History

Graveltech was born from the marriage of excellent products and the passion for providing outstanding customer service in an area not known for its service and quality.

Mike Peacock (Operations Director) has been involved in providing landscaping solutions for over 20 years, working with his father, the tree surgeon through his youth, and later after attaining a BSc (Hons) in Environmental Biology undertaking an apprenticeship with Fiona Lawrensen (Chelsea Garden Festival Gold Medal Winner). He then went on to run his own successful landscaping business called Grow Landscapes which boasts an impressive client list including the Crown Estates, The Bahranian Embassy, The Prince of Bahrain’s private residence and Dulwich Picture Gallery among its many satisfied customers.

Mike was involved in the provision of a number of driveways through his work and realised that there was a lack of reliable quality installers of driveways, this coupled with his passion for beautiful landscaping solutions and a love of bonded gravel made him keen to want to fill this gap in the market.

Mike realised that the challenge of providing this level of service to be achieved he needed to engage a suitable partner and felt that long time friend would provide the right blend of skills when added to his own.

Rhodri Davies (Sales Director) has a BSc (Hons) in Industrial Business Studies and has a wealth of experience in providing excellent customer care in his dealings with both small businesses and large corporates providing IT solutions. He is also a qualified and experienced project and programme manager (PRINCE2 & MSP), which, along with his passion for renovating properties, made him the ideal partner for Mike’s practical experience.

Testimonials

  • We instructed Graveltech in August 2011 to undertake a new drive and landscaping of our garden. The service provided was excellent, with innovative ideas being given at the design stage which provided a fantastic finished product. We choose bonded gravel for the driveway which looks great and is very hard wearing along with artificial grass which has provided a great solution for a small shaded area of garden and allows a clean and safe kids play area. Kind regards
    Barry and Nicola Coltrini

  • I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the finish and appearance of my pool surround. I have to admit to having been a bit apprehensive as to the end result as the pool is so dominant, but have ended up delighted and it blends in so well with the surrounds. It is also very much admired by all who have seen it. I think particular thanks to the guys on site for all their hard work and attention to detail. Once again many thanks to the team at Graveltech

  • Thank you, Rhodri. We are delighted with the drive and most especially with the very hard working crew, who took immense trouble and pains to make it as little disruption for us as they could and to tolerate the dogs and our strange requests! They went the extra mile for us and were unfailingly cheerful and accommodating. We will be happy to provide a reference, should you need it and in the spring I must send you a photo of the front garden with its smart paths when the flowers look nice and not autumnal!
    C Birch, E Sussex
  • I’m not sure if Peter has contacted you and Mike or not yet, but we are thrilled with the driveway! It was great to return home on Saturday to see it all looking smart with its curved lines. We will be making immediate use of it today, with clients parking on the additional area – and away from the traffic wardens. A big thank you to you, Mike and the team for a great job.
    C Walker, Berkhamsted
  • I must say how pleased we are with our new front driveway, big day today we are going to drive the car on, regardless of the dropped kerb not being done yet, just our luck someone will park outside!!! I hope Mike's wife didn’t lock him out on Monday, they did work very hard getting it finished. Thank you.

  • Hi Rhod Yes the driveway is really fantastic thank you! I have far more room for the two cars between the fence and the tree than I ever envisaged! It really does work so well and I can't count the number of people who have said how great it looks! I must say, obviously Mike has been great throughout, but also the guys you have had working on it are so hard working and professional... and just so nice to deal with when I've been bringing them their coffees and biscuits! They seem to take great pride in their work. Many thanks
