"We had recently moved to Thames Ditton and the rear garden of the house was in a very poor state. It needed substantial work as the lawn was very uneven. The fencing also needed to be replaced. After meeting Paul Downing we were impressed by his advice, knowledge and courteous demeanour. We therefore decided to engage the services of Heritage Landscape Gardens to carry out the work.
Throughout the project all the work was carried out in a meticulous manner with great emphasis to every detail of the work.
We were very happy with the end product and would like to thank Paul and Simon for all their hard work. We highly recommend Paul Downing's Heritage Landscape Gardens."

"Heritage Landscape Gardens, led by Paul, a parent of children at our school, helped us to develop two significant areas of our school premises. He realised our vision of a school Values Garden, and has created a very beautiful space which the children seek out for a calm and quiet time in the busy play and lunch times. The work was carried out on budget and on time. The way in which Paul and his team engaged with the staff and children of the school in the process of building the garden, has contributed significantly to the way in which they look after and seek out this particular area of the school grounds.
Paul and his team further contributed to the enriching the provision of our premises by building our Eco Plot. In the course of the school year, the children now have the facility take an active role in the care and nurture of their environment. The plot is an important learning space and makes a significant contribution to our provision for the science curriculum (amongst many other curriculum areas). The very high professional standard of work from Paul and his team, made both projects highly enjoyable for all."

"We employed the services of HeritageLandscapeGardens who were recommended to us by a very satisfied customer. We needed our rear garden re-landscaped and Paul came round to discuss the various options. We found Paul to be very likeable, helpful and knowledgeable. Our major problem is that we are away for at least six months of the year and are on a water meter. Instead of re-turfing, Paul suggested using astroturf which requires virtually no maintenance. We were very apprehensive about this but we went to see a project that he had just completed at HinchleyWoodPrimary School using astroturf and were extremely impressed with the quality, finish and his workmanship. We accepted Paul's estimate to carry out similar work which was completed within budget and on time. We were overall delighted with Paul and his staff and the rear garden still looks as immaculate as the day it was laid. Our only further expense has been an outdoor hoover for the leaves! Since then we have had Heritage Landscape Services back every Autumn to prune the trees and tidy the borders. We cannot recommend Paul too highly."

"From the initial idea of creating a woodland walk through our garden which provided a retreat and colour all year round, Paul had vision from the start! Paul is very
engaging and incorporated our ideas into a plan. We are delighted with the result and the planting and landscaping has exceeded our expectations. The work has been to a very high
Paul and his team are reliable and trustworthy and we had no qualms about letting him have access to the house when we were away. We enjoyed having such pleasant people working for us and would have no hesitation in recommending Heritage Landscape Gardens to our friends"
Robert Price - Hinchley Wood
"We hired Heritage Landscape Gardens of Thames Ditton to carry out a substantial redesign of our garden in 2008, which at the time was ‘dated’, difficult to maintain and more importantly, dangerous for our small children to play in. Paul provided us with valuable suggestions and input during the design phase, prepared a competitive and comprehensive quote and subsequently carried out the work to a very high standard. All the contractors used were, at all times, professional, hard-working and courteous. The job was completed on-time and within the agreed budget. We were (and still are) delighted with the end result and the whole family now gets so much more enjoyment from our outside space. I would have no hesitation in recommending Heritage Landscape Gardens.”
Rachel Milnes - Hinchley Wood
" Paul had some great ideas for our new patio. It was a tricky project as far as we were concerned as we have no side access to the back garden. However, Paul and his team worked hard at keeping the mess to a minimum and were friendly and completely trustworthy. We are delighted with the results and love to sit out in the garden and soak up the beautiful atmosphere that he has created."
