“In 2008 we were making enquiries about landscape gardeners to help us convert our 3/4 acre field at the back of our new build house into a garden.  We were given Ray’s name along with a personal recommendation.

We found Ray most helpful and a pleasure to work with.  He showed us lots of pictures of work he had done and left us with books on garden design to give us some ideas.  At a few meetings we were able to discuss what we wanted and Ray made a big input to the overall design.  He is imaginative and clearly loves what he does.

This was quite a big project to work on, needing lots of earth moving and construction work.  We are thoroughly delighted with the end result.  Indeed, every year we have open gardens in Carperby and all our visitors are very impressed with the garden that has been created.  Ray is not frightened to put his stamp on a project, but always discusses what he is recommending and is very flexible, making changes as the garden evolves.  He kept us fully informed about all the materials he was using and their cost.

We can recommend Ray without hesitation.  He is thoroughly professional and does an excellent job in every way.  We have kept in touch with him and he has visited on various occasions to see how the garden has developed.”

The photographs (click below button) show the progress and completion of the new drive, patio and garden constructed by Ray in May and June 2009.

Like many construction jobs, it is the work that gets covered over and you cannot see what makes the difference between professional craftsmen and others.

We were impressed by Ray’s commitment to making sure as the job progressed that he maintained exception standards to ensure this unseen work was done correctly.  Three years on and not one block has moved or sank and the quality of the finish has been maintained.

We would not hesitate to recommend Ray’s work to anyone; it is of the highest standard.

Should you wish to discuss further or view for yourself please contact (contact Ray for arrangements).

After recently moving into a new build property with my young son and disabled baby, I needed to ensure my garden was functional. As a person with extremely exacting standards I chose Ray Gardner Landscapes to work with me to design and deliver the garden of my dreams. I’d seen his work first hand elsewhere and was really impressed.

It was a tall order for Ray and his team as I required total accessibility for my daughter’s special mobility equipment from my patio doors, required a no-maintenance solution, wanted to make the most of the limited space to provide both play areas for my children along with adult patio and BBQ provision and, to top it all, Ray had to work within the parameters of significant garden level drops and budgetary constraints!!

I had very specific ideas about modern stone, the use of artificial grass and low maintenance to also include colourful boarders with electrical lighting. I am a busy working mum so needed a solution that would require little care or attention and would not create a mess when my son was running in and out. Ray consulted me every step of the way and provided options to meet my demanding needs but ensured that my budget was not compromised.

The end result is spectacular and we are delighted with our practical yet stunning garden. My children love their outdoor play space and we look forward to a summer of fun! I’ve already had numerous compliments from friends and neighbours. I would whole-heartedly recommend Ray and his company for providing domestic landscape and gardening services……as long as you keep a good stock of chocolate cakes and biscuits!!
