Initial design and hard and soft landscaping

Rich took our ideas and produced a perfect design, capturing exactly our requirements for a maintenance free contemporary garden. We are delighted with our new patios, pergola, artificial grass and storage area and our garden is now accessible year round. The quality of work was excellent, Rich is a perfectionist and co-ordinated with other trades and ensured the project was delivered to a very high standard. He was considerate of our neighbours, tidy worker and provided lots of good advice with regard to materials and planting.

Complete remodelling of walled garden

We found that despite some atrocious weather they worked hard and were cheerfully sustained by mugs of tea. Their hard work and the results were much admired by our neighbours as well.

New and replacement patio (design, excavate, build), steps, fencing, pathways, raised beds

Very pleased with the helpful suggestions of designs, willingness to work with us to reach our selected layout, and flexibility of commencement of work. Delighted with the final look of the patio and surrounding sleeper-work, plus the raised beds. They have been much admired.

New patio, fence posts and panels installed, lawn laid, patio renovated.

We selected Green Retreats largely due to the knowledgeable way they discussed the work we required, inputting useful ideas to our plans. Despite some very adverse weather the work was completed to a high standard and the garden kept as tidy as practicable throughout. Work was delayed due to poor weather but we were kept informed. We are very pleased with the work performed and have already engaged Green Retreats to undertake some more work for us in the coming months.

New Lawn & Pathway

The lawn is now level and a path has been laid which enables me to walk safely to the back of the garden.

New walled patio area, decking and lawned areas and new fencing.

An excellent job completed from a rough plan I had drawn. Their advice and suggestions at various stages complimented the finished project. Chris Marchant and Andy worked extremely hard despite the very hot weather. We would highly recommend Green Retreats as a reliable company that provides quality workmanship and a great finished product.

Artificial grass, raised bedding and play area flooring

Rich and Chris have worked wonders in our garden. We are delighted with the transformation and exceptional standard of work which has far exceeded our expectation. It was a pleasure to have these lovely guys around. They arrived on time with a smile on their face, were friendly, courteous and hardworking. They also did a wonderful job of entertaining our two small children! We were kept up to date at all times as the project evolved and they always left it tidy at the end of the day, which was appreciated. We would absolutely recommend them.

Back garden and side access laid to slabs and astro turf.

The work was carried out professionally on time and with excellent service. A fantastic result. They will come back later in the year to do the front garden. Highly recommended.

Garden makeover, front and rear.

We would highly recommend Green Retreats. Rich and Chris are full of creative ideas but also worked closely with us at every step to make sure the design and planting suited us. They paid meticulous attention to detail and all the work was done to an exceptionally high standard.

New patio, garden walls, rockery and re-turfed lawn.

Chris did a superb job of the new patio, garden walls, rockery and lawn. He listened to us about our requirements and offered welcome advice on specific features. He is extremely conscientious and courteous and a pleasure to have on the premises. We are very pleased with the work and would recommend him highly.

Complete garden makeover.

The results are absolutely amazing, far better than originally expected as to what could be done from scratch. Richard is a perfectionist, has worked extremely hard and relentless with the occasional help from his colleague Chris. Where difficulties arose regarding supplies originally ordered he always talked through beforehand any amendments which could achieve the final outcome to not only our own highest expectations and satisfaction but to his also. Many thanks from us all Richard (have never made so many cups of tea in a day!) Well done.

Full garden landscape project (front and rear)

I can’t recommend this company more highly. Absolutely lovely guys (Chris, Richard, Martin and Dee in the office!), incredibly hard working and phenomenally talented at what they do. We’re nothing short of delighted with the work that they’ve done and it’s far surpassed what my wife and I imagined possible from the plans. If you’re looking for a team of brilliant landscapers to bring your garden dreams to life, please look no further than Green Retreats! And don’t just take my word for it, our neighbours have been so impressed by what they’ve seen, they’ve requested a quote for their garden!
