Landscaping & Garden Design

As garden designers and landscapers in Surrey with 30 years experience, we are keen to help all our clients design a garden which is both practical and beautiful. What may seem like a good garden design idea may not be as usable as expected, and often this isn’t clear until it’s too late.

Landscaping a back garden is usually more involved than landscaping the front garden. The initial garden design requires a bit more thought as it is an area used for pleasure and relaxation. Whether you require a simple patio in a small garden or something more ambitious such as raised flower beds, a built in BBQ or water feature, please take the time to plan your garden design and research materials.

This is where we can help turn dreams into reality. As keen and passionate garden designers and landscapers we can help you design your perfect garden and offer you our many years of experience. There are a wide variety of paving stones, bricks and other building materials available; some are easier to keep clean than others, some harbour lichen or moss more readily than others which can become slippery and there fore a hazard. This is where our experience can help you design the perfect garden.

Apart from the above we have access to many other trades that we have built up a good working relationship with over the last 30 years, so if we cannot undertake any aspect of your proposed project we can find someone who can to the required standard.


Driveways can be constructed in many different materials; generally the driveways’ sub-base will be much the same depending on local ground conditions, drainage, the type of traffic using the drive and the final surface used i.e. block paving, Macadam, Tarmac or gravel. These are the most common surfaces for driveways, although there are others on the market. It’s just a question of which type of driveway suits you and your budget.

We are happy to advise on whether the driveway you are proposing is feasible, practicable and within current legislation.
