My garden design and tutoring testimonials speak for themselves. Here are a selection of comments from my always happy customers
Saul was a pleasure to work with. He spent a lot of time understanding how we wanted to use the garden and designing around that to ensure that we were spending money in the right places and we were left with a garden that didn't just look good but was ready to be used in the way that we had hoped. Saul designed a garden which we love, which was delivered on time and with a carefully managed budget and which has some really cool design features. He also pulled together a great team of outside trades who did the hard landscaping and garden room build. Would thoroughly recommend.
Saul did a wonderful job for us, transforming a boring shady plot under some leylandii trees into a stunning Japanese garden. This garden now gives me so much pleasure every day and people always comment on how lovely it is. Saul came for a preliminary discussion and then based on that and some images I'd sent him on Pinterest he came up with a very professional folder of ideas and a proposed layout and planting plan which we approved. The installation went very smoothly and hey presto! a gorgeous garden that requires very little maintenance to look great.
I found Saul via Google maps, along with a few other local designers and he was the only person to respond, to come and look at my garden and to consider the challenge. I will be eternally grateful he did as I now have a beautiful garden. He spent a couple of hours getting to know me and talking through what I wanted to achieve. We spent a further couple of hours talking through a design and the various options. Saul made my garden, as well as designed it. He is diligent and incredibly hardworking, and clearly cares so much about creating a beautiful space. Friends and family have commented how 'me' my garden is. That shows you how clever Saul is at figuring out what you are about!
We are really happy with the end result that Saul has helped us to achieve with our garden. Our space is small and made up mainly of pots and a rear bed, however he took our inspiration and helped to advise and source plants which have flourished and developed into our own wild secret garden in North London. He has also been extremely helpful when it comes to the aftercare of the garden and plants and how to help them survive the winter.
We have never used a garden/patio designer before, and so the process and outcome were a complete mystery to us. In fact, a couple of family members said they thought that they would be able to design our patio just as well instead of paying a fee for a professional. But reading so many positive reviews, we thought we'd take the plunge. Now that its finished, we are all just blown away. Its simply stunning. And we're so delighted that we spent just less than 5% extra getting a designer, but saved ourselves far more in the build and materials, and ended up with a far, far better outcome.
Saul was introduced to me by a great friend. She obviously knows me well because Saul was the perfect fit for me. A truly lovely guy who clearly knows his Latin (and his plants!). He got what I wanted very quickly and went on to create a little bit of magic on my terrace. He did such a good job that the neighbors knocked on my door and asked for his number. I would highly recommend him not just for his creative gardening/landscaping skills but also his chat!
