We found PM Landscapes online as a result of their excellent reviews to date, and after engaging them to transform our front and back gardens we discovered why they have received such high praise.
We approached Patrick with a broad idea of what we wanted and he took this basic outline to create something that is far better than we could ever have imagined.
Not only is the design fantastic, it was also beautifully executed with wonderful attention to detail. The finished result is absolutely stunning and was within budget.
Patrick and his team work in a totally professional manner and have been no inconvenience in our home, cleaning up after themselves. When we returned from work each evening there was no evidence they had been there, except for the transformation of our gardens!
We would highly recommend Patrick and PM Landscapes and would not hesitate to engage them again if we move house.
I would highly recommend PM Landscapes for any landscaping work. As I work for the Royal Horticultural Society, I was inundated with recommendations for good landscapers, but from our first meeting to discuss the design of a new garden, Patrick was enthusiastic about the project, gave me lots of great advice and creative ideas and helped me crystalise what I wanted to achieve from my outside space.
He provided useful guidance on the ranges of materials to use and how to achieve the maximum impact with my budget. Inevitably once the work started, there have been some design tweaks, and I've appreciated not only Patrick's patience (!), but also his calm and methodical approach to building my dream garden.
The attention to detail, and the standard of finish is just what I was hoping for, and they made it a stress-free and enjoyable experience throughout. Patrick and Dave are incredibly reliable, neat and tidy workers and perfect 'house guests', and I'm delighted to be able to write this testimonial for them. Now, off to water my plants.....
Patrick did an absolutely outstanding job on my garden. He is without doubt the best tradesman I have ever engaged. The job entailed completely clearing the existing garden - which included very invasive bamboo and then constructing a new garden with paving, walls, fencing etc working off a design.
From my first encounter with Partick I was impressed by his professionalism and knowledge. He did not blindly follow the design, but using it as a template, provided advice on how to translate the concept into reality. He has incredibly high standards for his work and his attention to detail is outstanding.
He leads the work on site every day - he does not delegate to others, and clearly takes personal pride and satsifaction from doing a job to the highest possible standards. He is ready to offer solutions to problems, keeps everything clean and tidy inside (even in the worst weather) and I can honestly say it was like having a colleague working with you rather than a tradesman.
I cannot recommend him highly enough - if you manage to secure his services you will be very lucky and will not regret it.

I recently appointed PM Landscapes on a complete overhaul of my garden. From start to finish they were a pleasure to deal with – Patrick gives good, honest advice and then implements that with a very high standard of work. He listened to my preferences and incorporated them into the design with no fuss whatsoever.
His knowledge and experience of materials, plants and layout were first class and I am in no doubt that what he has built will last for an incredibly long time and give us a lot of enjoyment. Finally, Patrick and his team were courteous and professional to me but as importantly, to my neighbours. They have all complimented his work and the manner in which it was carried out – I really was absolutely delighted with PM landscapes and they exceeded all expectations.
In 2011 my wife, two children and I bought a Victorian terraced house in Clapham with much need of attention (some would say 'with much potential'). Three years later the house was finished and was lovely - but it really needed the 90 foot long garden to be brought back to life to complement the house. Patrick and his team did just that and now we have a beautiful lawned area that acts as an extension to the house, a play room for the kids, a testing centre for my emerging gardening skills and a fabulous entertaining space all wrapped up into one practical and beautiful space.
And that's down to Patrick and his team. From day one we were talked through various options that fit our preferences and budget well. The work was solidly delivered, unruffled, reliable and always of the right standard. Patricks's team was in and out of our house without any fuss (and with the keys) for 6 weeks, including carrying tonnes of rubble and grass and earth straight through the house. There was never any mess or damage and all the floors were cleaned and mopped every afternoon. We truly would never have known there were workmen there.
All the little queries throughout the job became opportunities to improve the basic design. Unforeseen extra work was not done and then charged for as extra, it was pointed out early and Patrick was the epitome of reason in discussing how we would share the costs. Above all, his team were polite, friendly, reliable, skilled, organised and tidy, and the result (we think !) is one that reflects this. We now truly have a garden that not only matches the finishes to the house but adds a fair chunk of value to it as well. We are more than pleased with the outcome and would (and do) recommend Patrick to anyone else looking for a similar finish.

When we asked Patrick to come round and quote for a new patio, integral seating and fencing I had a basic idea of what we wanted. Patrick was able to come up with practical and cost effective ways of implementing our plans with lots of suggestions for improvements along the way.
The result being a lovely seating area at the end of our garden which the whole family is happy with and everyone who sees it is very impressed with. This area along with new fencing and planting has greatly improved the garden overall. Patrick and his team were great to work with, very friendly, helpful and tidy.
The work has all been carried out to a very high standard. Overall we were very pleased with PM Landscapes and would not hesitate to recommend them.

I have used PM Landscapes for several major garden projects including fencing, clearing unwanted shrubs and ivy; paving; laying gravel paths; building raised beds and a pond.
I particularly appreciated the way that PM Landscapes took time to fully understand my requirements and to discuss the best methods of achieving them.
This ensured that the estimated cost for the work was accurate and that we were entirely satisfied with the end result. All work carried out by PM Landscapes has been of the highest standard and I have no hesitation in recommending them to you.

We have used PM Landscapes twice now, for both our previous and current home. They are very easy to work with, and take time to really listen and understand what we have wanted to achieve in our gardens, made especially challenging given in both instances the garden design has had to make maximum use of limited space.
They have a good eye for detail and work hard to deliver against a fixed budget. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Having seen PM Landscapes advert in the Putney & Barnes Magazine I contacted Patrick in relation to my garden project. I was seeking to undertake a complete overhaul and I am absolutely delighted with the results. The space seems so much larger, more open and I get considerably more light having had the garden cleared of some large trees and overgrown shrubs. The area is largely paved with random patterned limestone (allowing plenty of room for entertaining) but has attractive fence panels and a large raised bed which follows a curved shape with low maintenance planting and some subtle up-lighting. However, there is sufficient space for me to add seasonal colour from time to time.
Patrick was very quick to respond to my initial enquiry and in our first meeting we discussed some of my initial ideas and he outlined how we could develop these further. He made some incredibly helpful suggestions but ensured to provide me with a few options to consider. His advice in respect of the type of fencing and hard landscaping was invaluable given there are such a wide range of materials available. Patrick was incredibly patient with my endless questions and importantly, also made we aware of the cost implications of various options in order that I could identify a suitable budget. Patrick has extensive knowledge of plants also. He provided some excellent advice on how to achieve a low maintenance garden whilst also incorporating a range of evergreen and deciduous plants that display a range of colours and textures. I look forward to seeing how the garden develops as the plants mature.
As I work full time, I had to hand over my house keys to Patrick and David but I felt very comfortable with them being in the house in my absence. Given my garden is only accessible through the house, I greatly appreciated the team’s hard work in cleaning up at the end of each day. I was very impressed by their care and attention to detail whilst working and Patrick kept me in touch with any adjustments that were necessary as the project progressed. The work has been carried out to an extremely high standard by a very professional team. They were a delight to work with and left me with some very helpful hints and tips of how to make the best of my garden in the future.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Patrick and his team to anyone seeking to undertake a garden project.
