The Extended Family – Specialist Contractors
We can’t possibly hold all the people we call upon on a daily basis for our garden designs in our offices, we regularly use specialists to support our projects; creating a beautifully designed garden for you that works both aesthetically and practically from start to finish. These may include professionals such as trained structural engineers to specify and oversee construction of complex retaining walls, or skilled arboriculturists to negotiate a large tricky tree removal or passionate ecologists to identify and supervise habitat creation or mitigation.
We take great pride in the professionalism of our staff and the tireless and determined manor in which they conduct themselves. We would only ever therefore work with skilled and highly qualified outside contractors for any of our garden design and build projects with our in-house team setting the precedent being mostly university educated alongside having years of experience.
Our clients may also need to come to us for support or advice for their own landscape schemes which are already in motion. This is where we can call upon this extended team to provide that specialist knowledge needed to make a new garden successfully come together on the ground and not just theoretically on paper. We are therefore proud to be able to offer a unique set of services to our customers as part of the entire garden design and build process or on an ‘ad hoc’ basis where required.
