"The garden is now a delight"

“We had a new house with a green square of grass. It was depressing. It was featureless. It was a turfed prison yard!    But salvation arrived in the form of a flyer through the letter box from a chap telling us he was virtually a sorcerer in a garden!   And grasping at the proverbial straw ,we contacted him. I immediately liked his dry ,unusual sense of humour which I appreciated….as mine is often misconstrued!  And he sketched a design which my wife and I both liked immediately. Simple but realistic and not horrendously expensive. He and the extremely hard working John arrived about four weeks after the initial interview as promised….so that was a good sign!  The transformation took about a week and that included more patio laying and the planting of 40 or so plants in heavy clay soil.   The highlight of the whole project was a joint trip to a wholesale garden centre where Dave’s knowledge of plants and gardens soon became very evident and we purchased many superb specimens at much reduced price. The garden is now a delight and I intend to live long enough to fully appreciate the siting,number and quality of the plants!  I cannot wait….and I’m happy to commend Dave Lewis as the gardener of choice to transform any smallish garden! Thank you, Martin S”

"A Fabulous Transformation!"

David and his team created a fabulous transformation of our garden and we couldn’t be more delighted with it. David’s enthusiasm, hard working team and simple but classic design all added up to an excellent end result.
The project was started at the worst time of year – January but the team battled on through rain, ice and a little snow to finish the job on time and, most importantly on budget. 
Now, with summer here, we can really appreciate what a great job the team did with beautiful shrubs and flowers in full bloom in a well laid out and easy to maintain garden. 
We can thoroughly recommend  Stratford Landscapes.
Thank you David and the Team.

"We will recommend the team to anyone who asks"

“Many thanks to Dave and his team for making our garden just as we wanted it to look. We are very pleased with the finished look and thanks to the help and advice given while they were working on it, we can now enjoy many days pottering in the garden. We will recommend the team to anyone who asks.”

Yours gratefully, Janet and Colin.

"Working with them was a real pleasure"

“I am genuinely thrilled & delighted with all aspects of my new garden – thank you so so much. From the vaguest of my ideas you have conjured up my most perfect outdoor space! Your expertise in every respect was invaluable from meticulous planning right the way through to execution everything was faultless! Richard & Lucas were phenomenal, conscientious & hard working a real pleasure to have involved on the project.

From reading other reviews you are accustomed to 5 star accolades & it’s hard to add additional plaudits to those already given! Perhaps the finest endorsement is that clients ask you to return & undertake further work & in that respect I,too, look forward to working with you & the team in the autumn on phase 2 of our garden project! Sincerest thanks again for all yours & the team’s efforts on our behalf.”

"We couldn't recommend this company highly enough"

“Just wanted to offer our thanks to the team at Stratford Landscapes for the fantastic job they’ve done on our back garden. We had them round to lay a patio area, seating area and to move and relay our old patio slabs to sit a new shed on. Dave came round and gave us a quote on the spot. A few weeks later the work began and we couldn’t be happier with the finished article. Richard and Lucas were fantastic and worked so hard especially in the hot weather which unfortunately turned to rain at the end of the project. They really ran the gauntlet weather wise but never complained and continued to do a fantastic job. Dave was brilliant, always returned calls/ emails quickly and offered great suggestions and advice. We couldn’t recommend this company highly enough, in fact Dave’s coming back to give us a quote for our front garden this weekend!”

"Dave and his team helped transform our lawn"

“I would highly recommend Dave and his team from Stratford Landscapes.  

Dave listened to what we wanted and with his knowledge and experience, helped to create a lovely outdoor living space. 
The team (Rich and Lukas) are polite, hardworking and diligent and never stop working from the moment they arrive (on time) every morning, to when they go home. 
Dave and his team helped transform our “blank canvas” lawn in a new build estate, into a beautiful garden with an abundance of plants and trees. 
We are so pleased with how everything turned out and look forward to enjoying our new garden this summer.”

I Wouldn't Hesitate To Recommend...

“We invited Dave from Stratford Landscapes around to discuss our small garden landscaping project early 2019, Dave was very passionate about his work and while some other people we met with who were very much hardscapers Dave was really keen to discuss the design, layout, plants etc. I showed Dave a sketch of my initial thoughts and some pictures from which he drew a design proposal. We went with the proposal and were very happy with the outcome.  I particularly enjoyed the couple of hours that we spent choosing the plants, it was nice to have his suggestions and also nice that he wanted me to choose what I wanted for the garden. Dave and his team did a professional/high standard job and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him for landscaping small gardens.”

Let The Guys Work Their Magic. You Won't Be Disappointed...

For 20 years our garden had a variety of purpose. From being overgrown when we moved in, to a type of “landscaping” before, 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 as 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, skeptical 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 tot he 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 a lot 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’t be disappointed.

"We Will Be Recommending Your Services"

Just a brief note of thanks.

Richard and Lucas were a pleasure to have working in our garden. They arrived on time and got on with all they planned to do, with no fuss, noise or drama. They kept the garden and around our property as clean and tidy as they possibly could, all the time they were with us. Their final clean up was thorough and complete.

Your input into our final layout was very helpful and the materials you suggested were absolutely right. The stone has lovely subtlety in tone variation and is complemented perfectly by the pebbles around the pleached tree bases.

Once the summer house and furniture are installed, we will forward you the ‘completed’ photos as you requested. We will hopefully have completed some planting by then as well. Thanks again to you and your team, very happy with what we have and we will be recommending your services whenever possible.

Absolute Pleasure To Have You All Working At Our House...

Hi David,
We have been so impressed by the professionalism of yourself and your team from start to finish. You have all been an absolute pleasure to have working at our house and we would like to extend a big thank you to the whole team.
The work itself is nothing short of perfect! We were amazed at how quickly it all came together and the finish is just excellent. You were sure to be 100% clear on our brief and you have exceeded our expectations.
We are so pleased to have found Stratford Landscapes and we would recommend you to anyone.
On a personal note, we had just had a terrible experience with a tiler, so to be able to deal with such a professional team as you have was a real breath of fresh air!
Thank you again!
Helen and Adam.

Bring On The Summer...

Hi David,

From our first conversation and meeting with David the team at Stratford Landscapes were fantastic and the project didn’t break the bank.

It was amazing how quickly our garden went from being a miserable mud patch to a beautiful functional garden which we are very much looking forward to enjoying when the better weather comes.

In just 3 days, Dave with his team of Richard, Chris and Lukas worked non stop to complete the work. At the end of each day and when the work was done they cleaned the area and made sure everything was perfect. The attention to detail was brilliant, the guys were friendly and polite and we felt comfortable with them from day one.

We would 100% recommend Stratford Landscapes to anyone looking to get their perfect outdoor space

Bring on the summer

Commendable Speed And With Great Care...

Hi Dave,

I would like to thank you, Chris, Richard and Lukas for your excellent work laying our new patio. The job was done with commendable speed and with great care, the lads always turned up on time, and minimised inevitable disruption the work entailed. We will certainly use Stratford Landscapes for our next garden project.

All the best,
Chris Drewett

A Peaceful Oasis To Enjoy Over The Years...

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 form you. We have no hesitation in recommending you to our neighbours, friends and family.

Thank you again,
Janice and Ian Gowanloch

It's Like Having An Extra Room...

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 now we have a garden, that in the coming years, will give us so much pleasure as the plants come 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.

Mary and Mike,

He Designed The Perfect Garden For Us...

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.

What A Transformation...

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,
Ms S, Stratford-upon-Avon

We Are Extremely Pleased...

Our garden is not large in area, as can be seen, but certainly enough 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 provided. It was constructed in a timely fashion by a courteous and tidy work team. Certainly David and his team and fully commended by us on his efforts to create the garden we were hoping for, and with which we are extremely well pleased.

He would come to you with our fullest of recommendations,
M & C S, Moreton-in-Marsh

Would Recommend Him To Anyone...

David Lewis has today completely 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 he quality of his work and would recommend him to anyone.

Mr C, Stratford Upon Avon

I Am Highly Delighted With The Result...

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.

A T, Stratford upon Avon

The Workmanship Is Of A High Standard...

I employed Stratford Landscapes to return to our garden from an extremely neglected state to a garden this 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 law was laid and all boorders tidied up and replanted. Where neccessarry 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

Everyone That Has Seen Our New Garden Love It...

We would like to say a massive thank you to Dave and Andy of Stratford Landscapes for the fantastic job you have made of our beautiful garden!

After moving into our new build property we had a completely blank canvas to work with i.e mud and 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 and 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 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
