Completely revamped back and front garden of Victorian house.
Richard and Chris were up against the elements during a mostly torrential February, they turned up come rain or shine! They stripped an unsightly mess of a garden and have made in into an absolutely delightful garden. The back garden, some 90 ft in total, done to a design and changed as it went along to suit the actual site. Fastidious workmanship, tactful comments which were much appreciated. They have a lot of experience which was very evident. Delightful chaps who, despite the rain always took their shoes of indoors. Did a wonderful design and job of front drive and garden area. Would highly recommend.

Built pond and relaid lawn.
Really pleased with the end result. The pond looks absolutely stunning. All of our neighbours commented on how natural it looks, as if it had been there for years. We were so pleased that we had the lawn relaid at the same time. Chris and Richard were really easy going, informative and helpfully guided us on some changes that we might like to make. We would definately recommend Green Retreats.

Remove trees, provide patio, decking and landscape through out.
Very hard working team. Efficient and friendly and able to accommodate late instructions. High quality planning service with some great ideas and imagination that won't break the bank. If you want a garden job that is hassle free then I would recommend Green Retreats.

Large garden project from nothing to fully landscaped.
Our garden was a blank canvas of mud. Richard and Chris transformed it to a spectacular garden with different areas of patio, planted beds, raised beds, pergolas and a play area. Their work is fantastic and everyone who has seen it can not believe what they have created! They worked extremely hard and always made sure they left everything clean, tidy and safe at the end of the day. We can not recommend them highly enough.

Relandscape front garden.
This was our second job undertaken by Chris and Richard. And just as before once the work was underway they would make suggestions for alterations or improvements most of which we took up and were highly successful. Highly recommended.

Garden make over.
A stunning garden make over that included pergola, trellis, sandstone paving (Tandori) which everybody loves and planting. Sometimes the weather was awful but all completed on time. Rich and Chris are my favourite workmen to date! A garden is such a personal thing it makes a very big difference when you can have sensible conversations with workmen who know what they are talking about.

Driveway and drainage.
Rich and Chris have completed several projects for us and continue to maintain their usual high standards of professional and personal service. Hard to fault Green Retreats in any way. Delighted to provide a strong recommendation, once again. Well done and thanks!
