25 Years Of Experience

Garden Design and build

Having been designing and creating gardens since 1996, we offer an unrivalled and professional design and build service, primarily for gardens situated in the South of England.

Our one stop shop concept, offers clients a seamless process, which avoids potential issues associated with sourcing a separate designer and contractor to build the garden.

We have worked with designers such as Jo Alderson-Phillips, Dan Pearson, Paul Shaw, Jane Thomas and Martin Lane-Fox.

Alternatively we can work with a designer you already have on board, our expertise in garden construction and background in design, enabling us to sympathetically interpret their plans.

Garden maintenance service
Whether you want a one off garden blitz to wake the garden up after the winter or put the garden to bed as the year draws to an end or prefer an on going maintenance service, we offer a truly professional and bespoke service. As such we are the antithesis of ‘the mow and blow’ brigade.

Pruning, training, weeding, edging, feeding, thinning and dividing are all tackled during these visits and we are delighted to work alongside you to teach and inform.

Planning applications
not always necessary but we can help when required

Legal reports
for use in cases involving for example defective workmanship in the garden, for such incidents are becoming increasingly common

As a matter of course we keep you fully informed at all times and liaise with your neighbours. At the start of every project we contact your immediate neighbours and let them know what is happening, lessening the impact of any disruption for everyone.
