Garden Design

We believe that with the right design even the most difficult garden can be made into something special. And as every garden is unique, we don't take a one-size fits all approach to design. All of our designs are client specific, practical and solve a homeowners problem.

The Right People

We will use the right people for each part of your garden. We employ a full team of professional landscapers and pavers in-house. For electrical and plumbing work, we have worked with the same companies over many years.

Tailored To Your Budget

You may need some quick maintenance, or a full redesign. We will work to suit your budget and requirements.

One Quote, One Price

The quote to carry out your project will be detailed, itemised and will not change unless the client themselves makes changes at a later date.

See For Yourself

Don't be afraid to ask. We like to arrange for prospective clients to see work we've carried out and to speak to previous customers.


Give Darren a call to discuss your needs and the potential of your space. Clear plans and detailed quotes can be provided to suit any size of job.
