Company info

I have been in the landscape business since 1978, when I started work for a local firm during school holidays.

Somewhat accidentally I ended up as a foreman by the time I was 19 years old and then eventually set up my own business, having had some time out working as a Scuba Diving Instructor and running my own diving school.

I Offer a complete landscape gardening and garden design service and am very much "hands on" being a creative Landscape artisan.

 
I take you through the design and then the construction process and most importantly will help you keep your new garden looking its best for many years to come, although I do not now do much garden maintenance but will certainly offer advice on what to do and when.


My specialty is creating contemporary looking gardens and constantly innovate with new materials and design methods.

Decking has progressed from slippery rotting softwood to long lasting plastic lumber or Aluminium sub frames with amazing new composite materials and of course Hardwoods being available, with subtle accent lighting being possible to build into steps.

Paving has progressed from when I first started in landscaping from being the choice of grey or buff to a bewildering selection of manmade and natural stone.

Garden lighting schemes are now available using 12 volt systems to give added "umph" to your outside space.

Computer controlled irrigation systems are now available for all budgets and pop up lawn sprinklers are particularly popular.

I have all the tools and machinery needed to create just about anything in the garden and the experience and expertise to correctly install whatever you want created - Excavator with auger and concrete breaker, tracked carrier and dumper, stone cutting equipment with dust suppression, welding , drilling and cutting equipment for steel, wood working equipment with dust extraction etc etc etc...

 

Generally I work on my own with the use of occasional labourers and other tradesmen when required. It may take me slightly longer to complete a project BUT what you get is someone who is absolutely dedicated to perfection and only the best will do, as can be seen from the many reviews on here.


I regularly work in areas around Chiswick, Kew, Richmond, Twickenham, Isleworth, Putney, New Malden and all points in between !

 

 


I really do have a love and passion for what I do and continue to research interesting and exciting gardens to provide inspiration and originality in my designs– e.g RHS Wisley, The Lost Gardens Of Heligan, Hidcote Manor, Villa D'Este and Chateau Villandry & many other Loire Valley Chateaux as well as Botanical gardens further afield In The USA, Far East and other parts of Europe. Of course being a regular visitor to RHS shows and gardens helps to keep abreast of developments in Horticulture and design.

Garden landscaping/full renovation

Verified Review

We hired Phil to do a complete re-modelling of our garden which included design, a new patio, putting up a new shed, lights, installing a trampoline and climbing frame and a full planting plan. We are so happy we did. Phil has been amazing and the transformation is incredible. He is extremely knowledgeable, reliable and takes great pride in his work. Our garden has been completely transformed into a space our children can enjoy for years to come as well as a relaxing space for adults. All of our neighbours and friends have commented on the amazing job he has done. Absolutely recommend!

Decking around a hot tub

Verified Review

We live on the river and it’s prone to flooding. The hot tub had to be tanked so that no flood water could reach it. Given the price of the hot tub just didn’t want anyone to build a deck. The ingenuity of Phil and how he built a special rail system for the decking to allow access to service the tub was very impressive. We absolutely love the work and it’s definitely the focal point of the garden. Great attention to detail, very accommodating and very tidy. Just a real nice person. We didn’t just gain a deck but a friend as well. See you on the next project.

Completely redo the Patio and fencing, expanding the space

Verified Review

Philip was extremely professional, whilst being very personable. He designed, source and installed an expanded Patio area. Completely refurbishing and modernising the area. It included building a stone wall, topped with fencing. Layed patio tiles, built up a raised flower bed and new complementary fencing. Additionally he sourced an electrician to support wiring the new lighting and worked closely with us to get the best result to the vision we had. Guiding and listening in equal parts. His experience and manner were so impressive and we’d recommend him highly to any friends or family.

Small London back garden redesign - introducing raised beds, trees, a pathway and recutting paving

Verified Review

We are really happy with how Philip helped us transform our garden. It's clear he loves his trade, is a real plantsman and takes huge pride and enjoyment in his craft. We couldn't recommend him highly enough; extremely courteous, respectful, communicative, timely and professional from start to finish. He did exactly what he said he would do and did it to a very high standard. It was only due to other people's recommendations on Checkatrade that we found Philip and we hope others will read this and do likewise.

Laid a slate pathway down side return, replaced painted garden gate and frame.

Verified Review

We are return customers of Phil’s after he did an amazing job completely re-doing our whole garden back in 2018. In Jan 2021, he did another wonderful job sourcing us a sturdy but attractive wooden garden gate and frame, which he painted and installed. He then laid a slate pathway down the side return. Phil is not just a highly skilled gardener, garden designer and landscaper, he can turn his hand to almost anything related to a garden. His standard of finish is amazing and he is lovely to have around. We feel so lucky to know such a talented man and would recommend him without hesitation.

Designing, building and planting for our large driveway

Verified Review

Phil is incredible. He designed and built a really beautiful driveway, that included labour intense cobbled sandstone sets, with such precision and care the result is constantly approvingly commented upon by passers by. He has amazing attention to detail. Phil is so friendly and easy to chat to it was a real pleasure to have him working here. It was a very big job and we’re so grateful it was completed to such a high spec!
