  • New garden designed

    10Verified Review

    A big thank you to Nathan and his amazing workers for the hard work they did to make me a garden to be proud of where I can enjoy growing new plants and watch the birds and the frogs in their new pond. Also it has made a wonderful area to sit and relax in. The new patio and pathways layed with attractive stones and slabs are more beautiful when wet to show the different colours. Planting area was cleared of old bushes and plants and the old roots also removed. A good quality lawn in the centre was layed. All rubbish removed with the whole garden left in a pristine condition. I shall use again.

  • Pergola


    Nathan and Tom have once again exceeded our expectations on the pergola they have erected on our patio. It has completed the final look to our already beautiful garden which they completed last year. Cannot thank them enough, they are both hard working professionals, and we would not hesitate to recommend them in all aspects of landscaping work. The final phase to their work for us is the front garden paving which is in progress, can’t wait to share it with you. Thanks again Nathan and Tom you are a great team.

    Would recommend Nathan, Tom and James, for the wonderful job they did in our garden. They transformed it to exactly how we wanted it. Excellent time keepers, and so tidy and clean the whole time they were working for us. Very professional in their work, and kept us informed of every procedure, they made us feel special. Cannot thank them enough for a really professional job.

Company info

Hello, I’m Nathan Doughty, owner & operator at Doughty Externals.

With over 17 years of experience, I set out seven years ago to build a portfolio of work, transforming gardens, driveways and communal areas locally to where I live, in and around Hampshire and West Sussex. The work was undertaken at weekends whilst also doing the same kind of landscape restructuring for other companies as my main job.

Doughty Externals has always been a firm objective of mine and that one day I would be working on the homes of people from all walks of life, homes large or small, who want that garden or driveway that stands out from its surroundings. An area that oozes quality, attention to detail and thoughtful planning. Tailored to your specific requirements, to suit all budgets. An outstanding outdoor space that truly suits you and your family’s needs.

Our aim is to continue to build our business based on recommendations from our satisfied clients and by sharing a portfolio of the work we do, so when it comes to that question “Who can I employ to transform my garden or driveway?” we aim to be the name on everyone’s lips.

We provide a personal approach, so with Doughty Externals there is no consultation or design fee and we like to work as closely as we can with our clients to ensure that their vision is fully complied with. Whist we are working for you, you are our sole priority until the works are completed, as will the next customer when we move on to their project.

As previously mentioned we have an extensive construction and landscaping background so we are no one trick pony, we specialise in all types of hard and synthetic landscaping, from natural stone and preformed paving to long lasting synthetic materials such as artificial turf to composite decking. The work we do is of the highest standard, as our testimonials show, so you’ll have total peace of mind that the work undertaken will be in a courteous and thoughtful way and the finished project will provide pleasure for you and your family for years to come.

Our services include:


  • All aspects of paving, pre-formed, sandstone, limestone, granite, porcelain
  • Decking softwood/hardwood & composite
  • Artificial grass
  • Gates, Fencing, timber & pvc
  • Driveways: Block paving, standard, permeable & eco-grid
  • Pergola's & privacy screening
  • Sleeper work/ planters, veranda's, retaining wall work & stone cladding
  • Water features
  • Bespoke outdoor firepits & fireplace's, wood/coal or bioethanol. 
  • Gabion's 
  • Hot tub/swim spa ground submersions from design & planning through to completion.
