Thanks so much for spending so much time showing me the two gardens today. I can see that you are brilliant at all aspects of design, build and maintenance of very fine gardens indeed. I much enjoyed seeing Chiltern Estate in particular, and can see your mark on The Berkshire Manor House too. Both are lovely and very inspirational. Your workmanship is second to none - I am truly impressed.

Veronica Mackinnon | GARDEN DESIGN & GARDEN TOURS.

Rob Jones, who runs the garden design company, has developed gardens for us twice in new build homes. In each case the gardens we had inherited were about a third of an acre and had been simply turfed over by the developers. Blank canvasses. We are not gardeners, but wanted a lovely garden to enjoy and to enhance our home. After taking great care to understand what we were looking for - and our budget - Rob and his team prepared design ideas to discuss with us. In each case these were very different, suiting the different environments and characters of each house (and incorporating a knowledge and imagination that would have been far beyond us), which we were very happy to agree with only the most minor changes. His team were wonderful, implementing the designs in a few days. Rob paid several follow-up visits to see how the gardens developed and swapping out the occasional plants that had not developed as well as hoped. We had years of pleasure from the first garden, in Buckinghamshire, watching it change every year as it matured (it started well and just got better and better). In the end I think it was largely due to that garden that we sold the house! On the strength of this we asked Rob to repeat the process when we retired to the Cotswolds a year ago, and are now loving the daily changes as the new plants develop and bloom - in sequence, like a fireworks display. When Rob visits now it is like meeting an old friend. We have no hesitation in recommending Rob and The Garden Design Company.

I wanted a cottage garden and I got one. Paid for by cashing some of my ISA’s. At least this investment is growing. Pays to use the professionals!


From the start of the design process everyone associated with this project has been professional, enthusiastic and hard working. The transformation from ‘Jungle’ to stunning wildlife pond plus our ‘wedding’ cherry trees and wild flowers has been amazing. We really couldn’t have asked for more and are delighted with the results


The service was excellent and the gardeners unfailingly polite and helpful. I don't think that your service could be improved.

Service is great; please keep coming to blitz my garden.

Andrea Macmillan | Bucks

Our garden looked wonderful and just keeps getting better as it matures.

Helen Glaister | Kent

We feel our gardener is now much more focused following your appointment as Project Manager. Money well spent.

"The service offered was exceptional, before, during and after the job was done. The team worked together well. They were friendly, approachable and above all hard working and dedicated to the job in hand. The end result was as important to them as to us. We would certainly use The Garden Design Company again."


"Everything that has been done has been first class"
