Our expectations were exceeded by creating a functional yet pretty space for our young family to grow up in and enjoy. The team were friendly, helpful, responsive and hard-working. From the moment I put the first call in I knew I was in safe hands.
Mrs Annette, Teddington
We are delighted by the quality of the work carried out. It was a difficult area to work in with the constant traffic. Both office staff and neighbours, including our tradesmen, were very impressed with the way they tackled the job and how courteous and considerate they were to everyone. For us, timing was also very important and you started and completed the job within our agreed timescales.
Mr Lees, Hampton Hill
We are both equally thrilled and accept the estimated budget, so we have the green light to commence at your earliest convenience. Tomorrow would be good!
Mrs Keeley, Sunbury
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the team for all your great work. We are really pleased with the end result. A number of our neighbours have taken an interest in our drive and garden and I have passed on your details.
I would like to express my thanks to you and your team for taking on the recent work of redevelopment of the rear garden. I would like to place on record that I am extremely pleased with the end result and wish you and your colleagues every success for the future.
Mrs Albut, Sunbury
Joss and the team helped us realise the ambition and vision we had for our garden, transforming what was a neglected and unloved space into something we will enjoy for many years to come. Attention to detail, proactivity, great time management and lovely people – definitely recommend every time!
Mr Evans, Hampton
I am delighted with my new garden and would like to express my thanks to everyone concerned!
Mrs Ewen, Walton on Thames
With the warm sunny spring weather, my wife and I are congratulating ourselves on our decision to have our 35 foot back garden redesigned in February 2010. Our choice to use you was mainly down to Joss Durham’s courage of his design convictions. He convinced us that the pergola we wanted would detract from the garden and how right he has been proved. The result is harmonious and colourful, varied yet uncluttered. Facing directly south, it has matured nicely and we now consider it to be an extra room and our legacy to our house. The team worked like Trojans despite adverse weather conditions and finished exactly when they said they would. I have no hesitation recommending them to anyone who wants a garden with flair at a competitive price.
Mr & Mrs Gleave, Teddington
Highly recommend to anybody who was considering landscaping their garden. What particularly made you stand out from the other landscaping gardening companies was the simplicity, and clarity of their vision for what our garden could potentially look like. Where other companies were tempted to over-design or clutter the garden, Joss balanced everything we’d asked for with a simplicity and elegance of design. Both he and his team were highly professional from beginning to end.
J Watson, Teddington
So delighted with the garden. Steve and his guys have been absolutely fantastic and everything looks great. Thank you it has exceeded my expectations.
J O’Hara, Hampton
Thanks for your help and services. We Are delighted with the transformation. Neighbours and family have been very complimentary and I expect one or two of them night be in contact in the future. Thanks also to Adam. We thought he was hard working, skilled, polite and responsive.
P Jelfs, Teddington
We are very pleased with the work that you did – you have transformed our garden and the whole experience was excellent from start to finish. In particular we appreciated very much that you listened very carefully to our brief and reflected our thoughts and wishes with care and attention to detail. (We had dismissed two previous firms after paying design fees because they were not able to follow our instructions!). Your team on site worked with great skill and care and we would ask that you pass our thanks on to Steve and his colleagues. We would be very pleased to recommend you to others.
M Hill, Kingston
Due to ill health and increasing disability, our back garden was not just becoming a wilderness but one that was actually dangerous to me as I could barely access any of it to exercise any control over it. Our pond was turning into a swamp as we couldn’t maintain the pump, the rock garden waterfall was a mountain of ground elder and ivy, and it was all I could do to keep our single gravel path to the back clear enough to walk down without tripping. It finally hit me one day that we would never in a million years be able to do anything about it as we no longer had the strength or energy for what was an ever growing problem. It was time for the professionals.
We were delighted to see that you do ‘soft’ gardening as well as ‘hard’ as we needed ideas of what to do as well as someone to do the work.
I’ll confess that when I saw Joss Durham’s first suggested design for the garden, I was horrified as it seemed too radical a change. I was attached to many of the plants that I had grown over the years and didn’t want to lose them. Joss drew up another design based on what I thought I wanted and I spent a weekend mulling it over. The more I thought about it, the more I realised that Joss’s original design was the one to go for. My own ideas would actually involve keeping many oversized plants that I already couldn’t keep under control and I would be left with a garden that I still couldn’t manage. My partner loved Joss’s original design right from the start and I could certainly see all the practical pluses – raised beds and wide paths would mean I could enjoy gardening for years to come.
Now that the job is done I can see that the design isn’t just practical; it’s actually beautiful. It was a stroke of genius that has opened up a narrow garden and made it spacious and welcoming. The design with its diagonal paving and beds makes the garden seem much larger than it is. It has also blended in with the original patio (which has an uneven edge and is 10 years older) as if the whole garden was made over at the same time; the new and old complement each other. When I look at the garden now, I feel joy and pleasure. Everyone who has seen the transformation has remarked on its striking new design and I wouldn’t be surprised to see ‘copycats’ trying to recreate some of Joss’s magic in their own gardens.
The design isn’t just beautiful; it’s practical as well. Everything is accessible and the raised beds make gardening tasks so much easier. I can safely walk all over the garden now, something I’ve haven’t been able to do for the past couple of years. It’s a worthwhile investment as I have always loved gardening and was unhappy not being able to do the things I used to do without thinking in the past.
The team have done a great job and I want to thank all of them, but the prize must go to Joss for his vision that has made a paradise out of a nightmare.
Mrs Banigan, Twickenham
Thank you very much for my beautiful garden! It is absolutely gorgeous and I can’t wait to spend some time in it come rain or shine!! Thank you for your hard work, our garden is now simple stunning.
