I love my garden steps
We have had three projects undertaken by Papillon and have been very pleased with each one. We have had very positive comments from friends and neighbours about the improvements to our property. I love my garden steps.
We cannot praise Angelique and her team at Papillon Design & Landscaping highly enough. From the initial consultation with Angelique, she listened to our requirements and returned with a fabulous design. On site, the team were friendly, efficient and organised and worked hard to complete the project on time and with minimum disturbance. We were delighted with the end result and feel it has really added to our home.
