Our testimonials

Words from our wonderful clients

'We engaged Paul Richards Garden Design to come up with a design for our very small town-house garden. Paul was extremely professional and imaginative. He clearly explained his fee structure; the way he worked; timescales; what he wanted to get from us in terms of our requirements and vision; type of plants we favoured and what our overall expectations were. Paul produced a series of plans and drawings that provided us with a very clear view of how the garden would look. We were very happy with the outcome and Paul's clear approach to costs and meeting our expectations. Many people have complemented us on the garden design too.'

'We commissioned Paul Richards to design two areas for us - a Mediterranean gravel garden near the kitchen and a more formal garden to be viewed from the main living room and master bedroom, inspired by our time living in Japan. Paul was the most professional of the over 40 designers we reviewed before coming down to a shortlist of three. His designs were good value for money, beautifully laid out and it was very easy to see what we were buying. We have recommended Paul to other people who have seen his work, and would have no hesitation in commissioning him again were we to look to extend our designed garden area. Paul was personable and professional throughout. He's also an extremely nice chap. Highly recommended.'

'Working with Paul was a complete pleasure. He listened to what we wanted, and came up with excellent designs that not only met our brief, but far exceeded it, giving us things we didn’t even know we wanted. Throughout the design process Paul always explained exactly what was happening and gave a clear idea of what to expect in terms of costs. We felt in full control of the process throughout and were so pleased that Paul used his design skills to push us, as now we have a garden that we could never have even imagined. We can’t recommend Paul highly enough. In our opinion he’s a genius, and a thoroughly nice person.'

'We love our new garden. It's so much better than we ever thought it could be. It suits our family perfectly and it's even changed the way we use our whole home. We consider it to be brilliant value for money, and a great investment in our home. We could never have done this on our own.'

'Paul did a fantastic garden design for us. He is friendly and listened to all our requirements, gave us good advice on costing and building the garden. In the end the design was just what we wanted. It now looks fantastic. I would use his services again without hesitation and strongly recommend him to others.'
