Clients’ Comments

‘In these difficult times the only good thing is our garden is looking beautiful. The construction work proceeded pretty much to planned timelines and the team were flexible in terms of accommodating our deadlines (parties etc). We are delighted with the finished result and even though the planting is less than a year old it looks amazingly mature and well established. We have all round colour and some really super plants.  We would definitely work with James and the team again on future projects.’        Ms C, Sarratt, June 2020

‘The commitment of the team was excellent. We were particularly impressed with James’ attention to detail.  He hand-selected the large boulders at the Yorkshire quarry and, when delivered, knew exactly where he wished to place them.  When cutting the steps into adjacent boulders, care was taken to ensure as natural a finish as possible. The Garden Company team had good relationships with the various specialists they use such as electricians, joiners and steel fabricators and it was clear that they worked together frequently which resulted in good communication between them. We, and everyone else who saw it last summer, thought the transformation was amazing, but even more exciting has been watching the garden develop over the last 12 months. We are delighted.’                                              Mr R, Rickmansworth, May 2020

‘We had certain requirements, but The Garden Company moved it on from those.  We’re very pleased – I knew they were very good, but we didn’t know how good until the design won a BALI award.  Then we realised other people think it’s a lovely garden as well’.
Mr S, Pinner, North London, March 2019

‘The guys were excellent. They worked with us on the design, were careful and considerate in the execution of the works and were thoughtful and friendly…I sing their praises at every opportunity.

Project Date: February 2017
The design and work was carried out in a professional and efficient manner in all aspects of the project, we had our kitchen done in January and the garden in February, our challenge was: “The kitchen looks excellent, let’s hope you can do the same with the garden, so no pressure!” and they succeeded! There was a lot of groundwork to be done, many trees to be removed, ground to be leveled, water features etc, and we think the final result of the project in photographs shows the finished article, just some sun required now to thoroughly enjoy the results. The installation guys were hit with rain, snow, sun – basically all that the English climate could throw at them and they just carried on regardless. Thanks!

Project Date: November 2016
The design that Alex proposed was interesting and exciting. It really brings the garden to life. It was so different to anything I would have thought to try myself and I am so glad I got help at this planning stage as if I had tried to design it myself, I think I would have been very cautious and ended up with a half-hearted attempt. Alex was more than happy to incorporate my own suggestions and adapt the design afterwards when we talked it through. This helped to ensure that it was affordable and that it was what I was looking for but it also allowed me to feel that I had some creative influence over the process.
I was quite anxious about actually having the work done as it was significant in scale but it was done so smoothly and efficiently, I needn’t have worried. The team doing the work made sure that there was no disruption at all and worked incredibly hard. They completed it on time with no problems at all.
It is fantastic now to be able to see the garden moving through its first year and I really couldn’t recommend the team more highly.

Project Date: July 2016
We hired the Garden Company to redesign our garden after renovation of the house had left the garden in an awkward shape and overgrown, in need of a complete new start. James really listened to what we wanted, and created a design that made sense of the space we had. The company carried out the work to a high standard, and were polite, considerate and trustworthy. We are delighted with the finished project. The garden is full of interest in different seasons, is perfect to sit in on sunny afternoons and provides a fabulous view from the house, and is now flourishing.

Project Date: May 2016
When we initially instructed the Garden Company to design us a garden, we naturally had certain ideas that we wanted implementing but also needed a little inspirational help!
Alex (Design & Landscape Manager) did not only met the initial brief but he completely surpassed it. He has given us a garden we are absolutely delighted with, and while we might not be expert judges, it is safe to say that the British Association of Landscape Industries certainly are, so by being given an award at their 2016 BALI National Award shows we were not the only ones that were impressed with his work.
While we can’t speak highly enough of Alex, we would also like to mention what a great team he had working with him. Humbly he always pointed out that Dave and Ian and the rest of the team were an integral part of why the project was so successful.
Moving forward, we now have Joanna and the maintenance team to make sure the garden stays as Alex intended it to, When they start their work in the morning we know it’s going to be as tidy as a show garden when they leave in the afternoon.
From the start of the project through to the ongoing maintenance, the Garden Company are an absolutely superb company to deal with.

Project Date: March 2016
The Garden Company redesigned and completed the transformation of our front and rear gardens – including three patios, lighting throughout, pergola and various paths. The process started with our garden designer, Alex, spending time with us understanding our needs and discussing ideas. We felt Alex was particularly attentive to the need for the balance between practicality and beauty. Communication with Alex, who also managed the landscapers, electricians for lighting, deliveries etc. was excellent at all times and has continued to be after completion, offering advice on plant care and fixing minor problems. The plants are of excellent quality and the garden is maturing beautifully. We are delighted with the end result and would recommend the Garden Company without hesitation.
