“For 20 years our garden had a variety of purpose. From being overgrown when we moved in, to a type of “landscaping" before children, to sandpits, climbing frames, swings, playhouses, sheds and finally a huge trampoline. It was time for a grown up garden where we could escape teenagers, enjoy pottering about and somewhere I felt was my own little corner of nature when not at work. David came into our lives when he returned my query via the website. And that’s my first point about him - he always answers phone calls, emails or texts. He came round and drew up a design and quote on the same evening. We liked him. He made us laugh and could understand what we wanted. The quote was good, we asked him to continue.
The work started sooner than David had anticipated and I became worried. Recent dealings with workmen on other parts of the house had not been great, and I was fussy, sceptical and naggy. David and his guys humoured me, put me at ease and worked extremely hard. Point 2 - they work their socks off. David suggested changes to the plan as we went along. By now we trusted David and his workmen - we let him change things, stepped back and allowed him to do what he thought was best. Point 3 - allow David to make suggestions and listen to his reasons why; he’s usually right.
Our garden was a bigger project than we had realised. There was alot to do and my impatience had to turn to patience as I watched it transform. The workmanship is incredible- the attention to detail perfect and not rushed. Point 4 - they are fussy too! We now have the most amazing garden. In two weeks we’ve all spent more time out there together than we’ve spent in the last 3 years! My teenagers love it, I love it, we all love it. The whole house feels lighter, bigger and more loved. It’s made a huge difference to us already; sad, but true.
My advice - let David tell you what he thinks. Let the guys work their magic. You won’t be disappointed."

Dear Dave and the Team,
Thank you so much for our beautiful garden! It looks so big! All your hard work has given us a peaceful oasis to enjoy over the years in all weathers.
You and the team have worked so hard to bring together our ideas as well as new ones from you.
We have no hesitation in recommending you to our neighbours, friends and family.
Thank you again,
Janice and Ian Gowanloch
Dear Dave and team,
We just want to say how delighted we are with the garden that you planned and planted up for us. Your advice, Dave, was immeasurable and we now have a garden, that in the coming years, will give us so much pleasure as the plants become established.
The Pergola that you built is just perfect for sitting under on sunny days. We have added led lighting to it and it looks so pretty at night when it's lit up. It's like having an extra room!
Thank you for your hard work. We would recommend you in a heartbeat.

In October 2012 Dave designed and completely re-built our small garden. It is fair to say that we are absolutely delighted with the results, to the extent that we were planning to move house in the near future but have decided that we now want to stay where we are for the foreseeable future to make the most of our new garden. From the start, Dave listened to us and took into account our likes and dislikes, wants and needs, gardening inclination and ability and ultimately how we use our garden. He designed the perfect garden for us, always working within our agreed budget. He worked hard and the work was completed within the agreed time with the minimum of fuss and disruption. He was tidy, always cleared up before he left and finished the garden to a high standard. He was friendly and trustworthy and very respectful of our property and that of our neighbours and I would have no hesitation about recommending him.
On behalf of Brenda & myself I would like to thank you for the great job you did on our garden. Using just our brief outline requirements what you have delivered is all that we could have hoped for and, as everything starts to grow and flower, we can see that you have made some really inspired plant selections.
Not only are we impressed with the results of your labours but we have had many highly complimentary comments from both neighbours and passers-by.
We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone else.
Many thanks & best wishes for the future,
Paul & Brenda L
Thank you for our fantastic garden, we shall enjoy endless fun in there! We will definitely recommend you to our friends.
J & J, Stratford
Jusr a brief niote to say thank you for the work you and your team recently did to build my patio.
I found your approach both helpful and professional in terms of dealing with my requirements and your workers were polite and hard-working.
Once again, many thanks.
Mr C, Bidford on Avon
What a transformation! Needless to say we're delighted with our new garden! It really looks a treat and it is such a pleasure to see our ideas come to life, but the result really has exceeded our expectations; all my favourite plants too, plus some new ones to get to know!
You've got a great team there so a big thank you for a thorough and professional approach. Please pop by in a year and see how it develops.
Lovely job! Thanks.

Enclosed are photographs of the 'new site' garden which was supplied with this property and subsequently landscaped by Dave Lewis. Not large in area, as can be seen, but certainly enouigh for our purposes.
The intention was to make as much of the space available as possible, and we really do feel that Dave Lewis achieved this with his creative design. A jungle was requested and we are delighted with the jungle as provided. It was constructed in a timely fashion by a courteous and tidy work team.
Certainly David and his team are fully commended by us on his efforts to create the garden we were hoping for, and wiith which we are extremely well pleased.
He would come to you with our fullest of recommendations.
M & C S, Moreton-in-Marsh
David Lewis has today completed the landscaping of my garden at the address above. He has done a wonderful job from the initial design of the patio, planting out of the garden, and laying the lawns.
My wife and I are more than pleased with the quality of his work and would recommend him to anyone.
Mr C, Stratford upon Avon
Stratford Landscapes has laid a new patio and made other improvements in my garden and I am highly delighted with the result.
David and Andrew are artistically talented and technically skilled. As a bonus they are two very pleasant and considerate men to have working in one's personal environment.

I employed Stratford Landscapes to return our garden from an extremely neglected state to a garden that is pleasant and functional. A new patio area was laid and bases installed for a garden shed and greenhouse. The workmanship is of a high standard and we are very pleased with the results.
Additionally a new lawn was laid and all borders tidied up and replanted. Where necessary trees were cut back to provide light and open up the garden to make it appear spacious; this was done on the advice of Dave Lewis and it has proved to be well worthwhile.
I have no hesitation in recommending Stratford Landscapes for this type of work.
Mr McG, Stratford upon Avon.
We would like to say a massive thank-you to Dave & Andy of Stratford Landscapes for the fantastic job you
have made of our beautiful new garden!
After moving into our New Build property we had a completely blank canvas to work with i.e. mud & dirt and
nothing else! “Fear not” after meeting with Dave he asked us what we wanted to achieve and then worked with us to design our new garden from scratch. After two days of hard work from Dave & Andy we are left with a garden we could not be more pleased with. As complete novices in this area we wanted someone’s advice and Dave could not have been more helpful from start to finish. He selected us some beautiful plants has created us a lovely patio area, and laid us a great new lawn. He also suggested that we have an additional patio area in
the form of a circle at the end of the garden which looks great! Everyone that has seen our new garden loves it and I would not hesitate in recommending your services to anyone else.
Many Thanks & Best Wishes,
Matt & Bex Hayden.
Please accept my thanks and gratitude for an amazing job and your professionalism; it's transformed not only the garden but the house and I feel like I have an extra room. Please pass on my thanks to the your team. They worked very hard and stayed cheerful throughout.
