What the client said

From the start Ben’s ability to take in and put down the design from the brief, was such an easy and exciting process. The level of detail and the suggested options made me feel confident that I had chosen the right designer and landscaper for this project. The space has been better utilised with the flowing garden retainer wall being able to be used for casual seating, as well as a small seating nook which is perfect for a more intimate setting. Ben‘s advise on the lighting has transformed the area and makes a stunning feature at night. The choice of both the hard and soft landscaping features continues to receive compliments from family and friends. This area has now become the focus living area for most of the year. I was so pleased with the result; I have also engaged Ben and his capable team for the front gardens – another wonderful design!
I was also very pleased with the ease, professional and friendly staff and contractors that work with the Yard team.
