Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for transforming our garden. We are over the moon with the quality and professionalism of the work. It has been great to see the bees and butterflies in our garden, when we sat outside on the decking enjoying a glass of wine.
Just to say THANK YOU as we are so pleased with our garden. From the initial discussion regarding the type of garden and plants we liked, you immediately understood our vision of our garden. With your extensive knowledge of plants and trees, together with layout and design ideas we have the most beautiful garden. Over the last two years we have been looking out of the window at a plain turfed space with no character or colour this has now been transformed to an inviting and interesting garden and we cant stop looking at it!! We are also really impressed with the hard landscaping and thank Steve and his guys for all their work during the hottest few days this year. The plants are growing well and looking amazing so we can enjoy our garden for many years to come.
Just a short note to let you know how pleased we are with our beautiful garden. We know that despite its relatively small size, it wasn’t a particularly easy project bearing in mind the steep slope at the rear but you successfully combined our wishes with your own design concept. The result is a manageable and pretty garden which has been admired by all our visitors. As you know we were initially slightly sceptical that everything you planned would actually fit into the space but the end result has more than met our expectations and the garden looks bigger1 We cannot let this occasion pass without a mention for the wonderful Steve and Wayne. They worked very hard during the build stage, even though the weather was very hot, and were not only completely professional but nice guys to have around.

Thank you so much for designing and physically creating our lovely new garden. It is a joy to have watched it develop over the past few weeks and an even greater joy to see the final version!! It has also been very enjoyable working with you, Jill, and your outstanding team – you should be in HR with your excellent selection skills!!!!
Keith and Wendy Waight Garden design Highworth, Wiltshire
Thank you for our finished garden, it is now a pleasure to go out there each day and enjoy the space. From the initial design to the finished project we have been impressed by the service and help and advice given by yourself on what was a vague idea of ours to start with. Also, many thanks to Steve and Wayne for all their efforts with the hard landscaping. They were polite, hard working and did an excellent job of work and were not a bother to have around.
I would like to thank you for the wonderful garden you have created for my family and I. The entire experience has been a pleasure from start to finish. The service we experienced was wonderful and your approach to design was great. As non-gardeners we were very naive where plants and planting was concerned. Not only did your design and planting scheme incorporate our inputs (very limited contribution), but you were sure to provide us with a space that suited the kind of family we are. The play area for the children is quite clearly their own space, which means the rest of the garden can be enjoyed by the grown ups! Your team is welcome back anytime! They had a fair amount of paving and digging to complete but tidied up each night before leaving – we never felt like we were living in a building site. And the result…..fabulous. And the view and textures change each month! I truly thank you all.
Sharon and Ian Dixon Garden design Chiseldon
Thank you for the lovely memorial garden you created for my mum. She was a great lover of the far east and her favourite colour was blue and I find, with the quiet of the surroundings and the gentle running of the water, this is an excellent place for me to sit and remember her. The choice of planting has been excellent as we have had colour and flowering right through May to October. You came to us recommended by a friend and we were impressed with your personal and professional service – we really did not expect you to work through all that rain AND a snowstorm to complete on time! We would be more than happy to recommend you to our friends and wish you much success in the future with your business.
Caroline, Janice and Mark Garden design Swindon, Wiltshire
Just a brief note to thank you for the wonderful garden design you put together for us. You managed to meet all of our (very!) varied needs. Quite how you managed to get all our requirements into a single garden still amazes us. Steve and the guys did a great job of translating your plans into the “real thing”. They were so quick and tidy, despite the atrocious weather at the start. Please pass on our thanks to them for moving the gazebo for us, and thanks to Rob too, for the work on the arch and the screening – and for carrying my heavy pots! We can barely wait until the warmer sunnier says to arrive so that we can make full use of our beautiful garden. Even the cats are using the stepping stones, and I’m sure they will claim the sunny spot on the decking come spring. The planting is great (thanks for leaving the labels!!) – at the moment we can only imagine the year-round colours, so rollon spring! We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending your services to friends and neighbours – we’re already doing mini-tours! You must all join us for the ‘grand opening’ party – bring plenty of business cards with you! Warmest regards
Barb and Ross Kitchener Garden design Highworth, Wiltshire
We wanted to drop you a line to tell you how delighted we are with the work you did on our garden here at the Manor House in Highworth. It really has been a great result and has surpassed all our hopes and expectations. As you will remember from our early discussions, we were very unsure about what to do with the garden and how it would turn out. Your phased approach of research then initial concepts followed by detailed planning really did help us to see how it would work and took away all the uncertainties in our minds. We really can’t thank you enough Jill, we’re thrilled with what you’ve achieved… absolutely brilliant! It’s now a real pleasure to walk in our garden and we’re sure you’ll be glad to know that you’re still getting lots of praise from everyone that has visited us. Please also pass on our thanks to Steve and Rob for all their hard work and for being so thoughtful and considerate while they were working with us. Warmest regards
Stephen and Anna Hamilton Garden design Swindon, Wiltshire
Thank you so much for the wonderful designs for our back garden. We absolutely love it and can’t believe that it could be such a joy to look at. Roll on next summer!! Please could you pass on our thanks to Steve, Wayne and Liam who did all the landscaping- (and of course to you for the planting). They were all so helpful, friendly and tidy and worked really hard. They were a pleasure to have around. The service we have received from you all has been of a very high standard and we have recommended you to other people. Thank you once again!
I am very pleased with the total transformation of what was a mud patch full of weeds into something of beauty. The team have worked hard to create a wonderful space. It is now pretty much what I had in my mind when we first discussed the project but the reality is more pleasing than I anticipated. I am now looking forward to seeing the planting when it has had time to establish and develop. It is already a place of joy and relaxation instead of the headache it was before. I promise i will look after it and may contact you in the furture for some advice. Best regards
Pat and Joe Garden design Swindon
Just a belated note to say thank you for all the work you put into our garden, from the rough ideas we gave you, we never could imagine the end result and all this in just over 2 weeks. Before you arrived it was an untidy, neglected mess and we kept the curtains shut to try to ignore it. Now we have a wonderful garden that we can enjoy all year round and happily show off! It’s pouring with rain as I write this but it still looks amazing. Many thanks to you, Steve and Wayne who gave us wonderful ideas regarding lighting and such; they couldn’t have been more helpful. Kind regards
Angela and Rick Garden design Swindon
We just wanted to let you know how pleased and delighted we are with the design and landscaping of our garden. As you may recall, I was left a legacy from my Dad, so thought we would invest some of the inheritance towards the garden project. Dad loved to ‘sit out’ and I have to say you and your team have done him proud. It is such a lovely, peaceful place for us to enjoy and I often sit out quietly admiring the new surroundings whilst also remembering my Dad. The moment I ‘clicked on’ to your website and saw your previous garden designs, I knew that you fulfil our requirements and understand our wishes. The whole team worked so hard starting work at the beginning of January and in some very wet and difficult weather conditions. But this didn’t stop their hard graft and commitment to get the hard landscaping done. I think I recall a total of 8 days. Quite an achievement in the circumstances! They were all so lovely, polite and kept the area tidy. They were all so lovely, polite and kept the area tidy. The quality of their workmanship shines through. Everything is coming alive now and already looks like a ‘well established’ garden. It is admired by many of our friends and neighbours. Next time your in the area, please feel free to pop in and take some photos for your album. It’s more than just a garden… Needless to say you will be highly recommended by us. Thank you for a fantastic job. I wish you all the very best. Many thanks.
