MD Driveways and Landscaping or ‘Modern Designs’ as we are more familiarly known, have been transforming the way houses appear for a good number of years. An established company primarily trading in and around the Birmingham & Solihull areas, we help develop properties throughout the West Midlands and most of Worcestershire. Driveways and Landscaping are our core businesses, but we have a range of complimentary building services too that include ‘doors’, ‘windows’ and ‘garage conversions’.Checkatrader and Trustatrader logos

Our hard-earned reputation, we are proud to say, is second to none - because we value our clients and do our utmost to exceed their expectations by being courteous and professional whist making every effort to provide excellent value for money. A new tarmac driveway, a block paved patio or a brand new garden pond represents a sizeable investment to most people, and we make sure that not only the job gets done on time and to budget, but also, that your property looks improved and better for that investment.
