Highly recommend
"The Constant Gardener turned my neglected field like garden into a beautiful contemporary garden space. From the initial designs to the final plant going in Rebecca and the team worked tirelessly to ensure everything was done to the highest standard. Sourcing materials for the patio or permanent gazebo was all part of the service and made my decision making and life a lot easier. We were in constant dialogue throughout the whole process and it was fantastic to be so involved. I am looking forward to many years of watching the garden grow and mature"

I would recommend The Constant Gardener to everyone
"It was “The Constant Gardener” website which prompted me to contact the company about redesigning my garden. The website is very professional, but friendly and provided a lot of information about what to think about and how to choose the right person to care for your garden. Rebecca responded quickly and visited me to talk about my requirements that afternoon. Rebecca took on board all of the features that I wanted for the garden and also guided me toward other solutions that would allow me to use my garden more effectively and make the garden easy to maintain. Rebecca was on hand to check that each stage of the redesign was carried out to her very high standards. The hard landscaper undertook the work in a very exacting and conscientious way. Rebecca undertook the planting and she worked out a planting scheme for me based on my favourite plants, but also recommended others that would compliment my choices. The finished garden is absolutely stunning, and I can’t thank Rebecca and her team enough for making the design process and the build so easy. I would recommend The Constant Gardener to everyone."

I have been completely thrilled with the final results of my new garden, and receive positive comments from all of my visitors since Rebecca and her team created this stunning space.
"Having moved into a new build house, my back garden was a completely blank canvas. With no experience of garden design or gardening at all, I really needed a lot of help.

The Constant Gardener took care of everything, from designing a wonderful rear garden to redesigning the front garden and driveway. This involved a particularly innovative design in the rear garden to provide increased privacy from overlooking neighbours. I was also given excellent opportunity to shape the design to my choosing.

Once the design was completed, implementation was carried out to an exceptionally high standard of workmanship. All planting was done beautifully, and the laying of the stone patio area and additional front driveway was to a standard that exceeded my expectations.

I have been completely thrilled with the final results of my new garden, and receive positive comments from all of the garden’s visitors since."

But the crowning glory is the garden, which was planted in March this year. It, looks beautiful and incorporates all the features we requested.
"Rebecca and her team originally began work on the garden in early 2014, installing new fencing and a base for the summer house. Work was then suspended until December when the more disruptive building works to the house were finished. She was very flexible, working around the other works and managing to get things done quickly and with minimum disruption. We are absolutely delighted with the paving, which looks wonderful and throws light up into the back of the house. But the crowning glory is the garden, which was planted in March this year. It, looks beautiful and incorporates all the features we requested. The best moment for myself was when my partner, who was doubtful about having the garden landscaped, admitted that it was maybe the best thing we did because it offers such a brilliant, restful view from the house and sets off all the other works. We would strongly recommend The Constant Gardener for the quality and efficiency of their work and their consistent cheerfulness whatever the weather.
Thank you to Rebecca and the team. Great work!

Great job. Fabulous service. Friendly team. Couldn't be more pleased!
"We wanted a base laid for delivery of our forthcoming summerhouse however we also wanted an patio type area built in front and around the base. Rebecca's team achieved this and it looks exactly as I had envisaged it would look. Not only did they match the pavers to those we already had they joined the area onto the original patio path so you would barely know it had never been there. They had great ideas and the team who undertook the job were friendly and nice to have around so this all made for a totally stress free experience.
Many thanks just need the summerhouse to be delivered now!"

I can recommend this Company to anyone, they were very clean, polite and it was a pleasure to share my home and garden with them throughout their time working on site.

Many thanks again for a fantastic service."

I am very happy to recommend The Constant Gardener team to anyone looking for a professional garden design and build team.

From the moment we made contact with Rebecca at the Constant Gardener we were treated in a courteous and friendly manner. All appointments were made at mutually convenient times and our first personal meeting with Rebecca soon arrived. Our thoughts and concerns were discussed and noted so that the design we received catered exactly to our needs.
"The work was instigated within weeks and everyone worked really hard during some harsh weather conditions. All the team who worked in the garden were friendly and gave us no concern about leaving them there whilst we were out at work. Each day everything that was being used was tidied up and meant we didn't feel like we were living on a construction site.

We had decking and paving laid and the craftsmanship that went into this was very impressive. The amount dug out to lay the paving was amazing and certainly not a surface skim with a bit of sand to lay slabs on. The team completed this part of the work and they were fastidious in ensuring that everything was just so. All the screw holes on the deck line up and the attention to detail in cutting and laying the deck and paving is very impressive. The planting side of the team have been like garden fairies - one day they were no plants and the next we had fully stocked beds again.

Throughout the process of garden re-design Rebecca was in constant contact and regularly came to visit and check on the progress.

We now have a lovely garden which is low maintenance and a pleasure to walk out into. We would highly recommend the Constant Gardener team and would urge anyone thinking of having anything done to their garden to use their services. They are a professional team who know their profession and carry out work to the highest degree. "

Despite my wife and I having had a garden for years our knowledge of gardening was frankly basic. We decided to invest in a new garden starting from scratch, including the removal of trees, scruffy old decking and a collection of past-their-prime plants – right back to bare earth in fact.
"Despite my wife and I having had a garden for years our knowledge of gardening was frankly basic. We decided to invest in a new garden starting from scratch, including the removal of trees, scruffy old decking and a collection of past-their-prime plants – right back to bare earth in fact.

Choosing a company to undertake this work was a challenge in itself. We were very glad that we chose Rebecca and 'The Constant Gardener' for our garden design and build project. We would recommend their services to anyone, for these reasons:

Excellent design - they produced a design that recognised our rather hazy requirements and captured more or less what was in our minds - no easy task!

Outstanding quality of workmanship – a cheerfully hard-working team arrived on time, every day and carried out all aspects of creating the new garden from tree-felling and digging to planting and electrics. They were unfailingly polite, friendly and tidy.

Flexibility – any small changes were dealt with quickly and effectively on site.

Easy Project Management – well, easy for The Constant Gardener! The sheer convenience of having so many trades and services available under one roof cannot be underestimated – I had no real idea beforehand of the extent of work involved. It also makes it much easier to track costs and settle bills with just one contractor.

In brief, what you get with Constant Gardener is a team that is big enough to do everything but still small enough to care about what it does.

We are very happy with our new garden."

Your team were professional, accommodating and thoughtful to those in adjoining properties i.e ensuring that their drive was clear at the end of the day.
" quick e-mail to thank you and your team for the time and effort you have put into sorting out our front garden.

The ground was hard and untreated, the site a small, odd shape with no real advantages to work on, but you worked your magic and have come up with something which not only met our requirements, but also came up with something that people will look at and think 'how did they do that?'.

You listened and were non-judgemental, and used your skill and knowledge to come up with a plan that matched our thinking.

Your team were professional, accommodating and thoughtful to those in adjoining properties i.e ensuring that their drive was clear at the end of the day.

The garden is now looking tidy, cared for and importantly very presentable to the overall presentation of our home.

Thank you, and I look forward to working with you in the future."

I can't recommend The Constant Gardener enough. Initially quoting 3 days, the team completed the work in just 2. The garden was left spotless after the work was completed and the team even took some time to move around some chairs and pots to show me just how a garden could be.
"Over a period of 10 years I had become emotionally detached from my garden, watching it slowly grow out of control until it became an oppressive space that I avoided venturing into. It both embodied my anxiety and reaffirmed my long-held belief that I'm not a gardener. Rebecca understood this on her first review of the space and was able to suggest practical changes that would open it back up.

The results were remarkable - now my garden is open and airy. It breathes again. When I look out of the window I no longer turn away - I look, and keep looking, at a space that's inviting me outside. And when I take those steps I get a rush of endorphins. I'm once again engaged with a space that I feel happy and comfortable in. I feel more inclined to pot up some plants for the patio, paint the fences, and all the other jobs I didn't see any point in doing when I couldn't even tackle the wilderness beyond.

I can't recommend The Constant Gardener enough. Initially quoting 3 days, the team completed the work in just 2. The garden was left spotless after the work was completed and the team even took some time to move around some chairs and pots to show me just how a garden could be. Thank you!"

Rebecca started working with us at the beginning of the year. Immediately, Rebecca identified what was required in terms of getting the main framework of our garden back into shape.
"Rebecca started working with us at the beginning of the year. Immediately, Rebecca identified what was required in terms of getting the main framework of our garden back into shape. The Constant Gardener team reduced overgrown hedging and felled unwanted trees as well as dealing with the relevant people at Chelmsford Borough Council on our behalf where trees were covered by preservation orders.

The next stage was to find a way of really improving the visual appeal of our garden and Rebecca recommended that we engage Rebecca Butterworth (RHS Gold Medal Winner) to come up with some designs for the front and back gardens. Delighted with Miss Butterworth’s design plans, we set about transforming one substantial bed and I’m so pleased with the result that I can’t wait to roll-out the rest of Rebecca’s ideas!

I would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca and her team for many reasons, some of which are:
- Rebecca is a fully trained expert who knows how to garden properly
- Rebecca works with an extended team if you need it, tree surgeons, designers, landscapers etc
- Her team are extremely polite and professional
- Rebecca listens to her customers and really cares about delivering a service! "

My beds are beautiful and the ivy is a thing of the past. What a relief. The funny outcome is, it has actually reignited my interest in gardening and we can now see where we are going. Here's looking forward to a Constantly beautiful Garden!
"It was obvious I had become too emotionally involved with my untidy, disorganised and overgrown garden. I could not bring myself to dig anything up and did not know where to start. I thought it might come good on it's own in the end. A futile philosophy. So my wife called Rebecca and the girls round and they brought a tree guy. They quoted us for 20 hours and they were within two hours of this quote. I worked out that would take me 10 months to cover on my own. My spare time is too precious!

Now my wisteria is wired, the trees are pruned, the hedges look smart, my beds are beautiful and the ivy is a thing of the past. What a relief. The funny outcome is, it has actually reignited my interest in gardening and we can now see where we are going. Here's looking forward to a Constantly beautiful Garden!"
