We have nothing but praise for the excellent services provided to us by Chris Paul our Landscape Designer. He is very professional with an abundance of experience in all areas of landscaping. We have known Chris and have used his services for a number of our homes over a period of twenty years. When the time came to build our new home from scratch, we contacted Chris at the outset. We had a vision for the type of home and we wanted the outdoor area to complement that vision. Chris listened and took on board our dreams and turned them into reality. We were shown the gardens of some of Chris's other clients to see what could be achieved. Using some of our own ideas as well as taking on board the great suggestions that Chris had, we were able to create a wonderful outdoor area of our own.
We have had great communication with Chris and whenever something has needed to be attended to he has always been approachable and willing to discuss the next stage of our landscaping. Chris has provided us with outstanding service over the period that we have known him. He is very approachable and considerate of our needs and wants and has shown the utmost care for us as his clients. He truly loves what he does and that passion comes across in every outdoor setting that he creates. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris to any of our friends. That from our point of view is the highest possible recommendation"
