Recommendation for builder/gartenbau in Zug/Rotkreuz area

We need a low terrace wall partially constructed of railway sleepers replaced with concrete (the rest of the wall is concrete).

Offers that we have had on Renovera (which we have used to great success in the past) have been mainly from companies that may not be up to it.
Previous reviews for them seem to all be in the vein of "Herr.... did a great job in trimming our hedge!"

This is a bit more involved than that, but isn't structural.

So, personal recommendations for a company that could do this would be great.

Thanks!

Railway sleepers are very difficult (read sodding EXPENSIVE) to get rid off as thy contain lots of nasty cancer forming chemicals......


Not so many re-cycling units can accept them and the ones that do make sure you never ever forget them

You'll need an independent builder who works alone or a small company. How long and high is the wall?

Ours were picked up free when it was oversized rubbish collection day. We had about five or six to get rid of as well as some half-sized ones. It means they were off to the incinerator. It will depend on the town's policy.

That's not going to be our problem.
