About Us

 My name is Nigel Walker and I am the Managing Director of N W Paving & Landscaping ltd

award winner 2012
                                                               Managing Director, Nigel Walker

I have been involved in the construction industry since the age of 12, when I used to help my father on weekends and school holidays – I suppose you could call it child exploitation!

At 16 I joined my father's building business and continued to learn all about construction, working on many large projects in Cumbria and beyond, gaining valuable experience.

My favourite aspect was always groundwork's and in particular paving. In fact I suppose you could say that paving has become a passion for me as well as a business.

In 2001, after having a 14 year apprenticeship! I decided to start my own company and specialise in paving.

From a humble beginning with a second hand van and borrowed tools, I have expanded and developed into a growing company, employing local people, whilst maintaining the personal touch that I think is essential.

Cumbria's Designer Garden Specialists

Since 2001, the company has installed thousands of driveways, patios and gardens all over Cumbria and beyond.
We always evolved with the times and technology. We started off installing Block Paving and concrete flags. We then moved onto Natural Stone Flags sourced from both the UK and all around the world. We were one of the first in the North West to embrace Resin Bound paving and Wildflower Turf installations

In 2011, we decided to have a go at Show Gardens, when we built our very first show garden at the prestigious Holker Garden Festival. We got a Gold Medal at our first show and then over the following few years, we achieved a further 4 gold medals.

In 2013 we were awarded 'Best Driveway' at the Marshalls National Awards. We have also been awarded a further 2 Regional Awards with Marshalls. Photographs of our work have featured in every Marshalls Catelogue since 2013

In 2015, we were accepted onto the national approved register for SureSet resin bound. In 2016 we were fast tracked to 'Elite' staus and we were then awarded Elite Approved Installer Project of the Year, with Sureset for our resin bound installation near Hesket Newmarket.

In 2016, we were approached by Moota Garden Centre and asked if we would undertake all their landscaping projects. We were then able to work with Garden Designer Rob Austin on quite a few projects in West Cumbria.

We continue to work with Rob and Moota.

In 2018, the company decided to move away from driveways and patios and concentrate on Fully Designed Gardens, working alongside Rob.

We have immense pride in our work and this shows through a lot of repeat custom.

An estimated 80% of our domestic projects are either repeat custom, word of mouth from one customer to the other or for other members of family.

All the garden landscaping work on your projects is undertaken by our own team of qualified, trained and experienced tradesmen.

Our team are always on time, are polite and are respectful of the surrounding area and your neighbours.

We treat your property with respect - the work area is cleaned and tidied every day. You are given access to your home at all times.

On the vast majority of projects we are there from start to finish. We will complete your project before we move onto the next one.

Upon completion of the work, you are given advice on your new designed garden.

N W Paving and Landscaping  operates the full 12 months of the year. Although the unpredictable English weather can sometimes make life difficult, Nigel and his team can complete projects in all seasons.
