This client’s sloping garden was located on a hill overlooking Portsmouth harbour, and we were selected to design and construct a more usable space. There was a big step out of the house down onto a patio, and a moderate slope on the garden from the house down to the rear boundary, making the garden impractical to use.
We designed a hardwood deck to meet the door thresholds of the building, creating a flow through from the interior and exterior spaces. We installed a wide feature step across the full width of the garden, to link the levels of the deck and lawn level.
New oak sleeper walls were installed around the edge of the mid-level lawn, to help create a flatter usable surface. An additional step down onto a compacted aggregate surfaced kitchen garden area was installed in one corner of the garden, framed by two bespoke oak sleeper planters.
Planted borders were installed on the original ground levels around the perimeter of the garden, helping to frame the lawn, screen the boundaries, and add some colour and interest to the garden.
The finished result transforms an unusable slope into gently terraced practical surfaces.
Checkatrade feedback – ‘I cannot recommend Revitalise Gardens enough, we had rough ideas on what we wanted our new garden to look like and Isaac not only met all our needs with the design but was honest about what would work and ensured we got the best design possible. Dan and Rich carried out all the works and were highly efficient, personable and reliable. This included carrying on with the work in heavy rain and hail (despite my attempts at getting them to shelter inside to keep dry for five minutes!) Dan and Rich were there for the full eight days and I also work from home, I couldn't have asked for better workmanship.’
We own a newly renovated modern house; and the garden planting needed to match, Isaac listened to ideas we had and the design he prepared was perfect. We've had people taking photos of the garden, actually stopping outside the house to talk to us about it. They worked so hard to achieve this, they had the skill to be able to adapt the design as they went along, working with the natural features of the garden and enhancing them with the new bits. They are all incredibly talented at what they do, and really nice people to work with.
Friendly, professional and courteous. Able to be flexible on arrangements. Delivered a lovely result and gave lots of tips for aftercare. Will definitely use again.
Professional service from start to finish. Isaac initially came to inspect the garden and discuss my ideas on what I was looking to achieve. From this he was able to provide full drawings of what the finished garden would look like along with a full detailed quote. Upon commencement of the works the team worked tirelessly in order to complete the project within the agreed timescales. The end result is fabulous!
Isaac and his team have been efficiently maintaining the parts of my garden that I struggle with due to incapacity for several years. They are very processional, work to a high standard and are very good time keepers. I have been extremely pleased with the work they have carried out always discussing any aspects necessary. They work in a very tidy manner and are thoroughly nice chaps to boot. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.
One of the best trades we have encountered. Excellent service. Polite and tidy. Early starts and full day worked. Work finished to a very high specification. Site left spotlessly clean. Would definitely recommend this company.
We have used Isaac and his team in the past and were not disappointed! We decided to ask them to come back again this year to do further works in our garden. We had various areas of the garden done; patio areas, new trellis fencing, a border shape changed and extended, new border plants and stepping stone paths. The team on our job was Nick and Sam. Excellent in every way - competent, professional, friendly and each had a sense of humour at all times, especially on the days when it absolutely poured with rain! Everything each day was left tidy. I would strongly Revitalise Gardens.
Revitalise Gardens have assisted with a project to make over our garden for my son Oliver aged 9 who is severely disabled and was previously unable to access the garden. They dedication and commitment to the project was second to none and the works couldn't have been completed without their input. The work has made a huge difference to Oliver and the entire family and we thank them greatly for this.
I would highly recommend Revitalise Gardens. Having looked on their website I was impressed with some of the larger scale projects they have done. This job in comparison must have seemed relatively small for them, so I was very impressed with the fact that their customer service, advice throughout and attention to detail made me feel like I was a very important customer to them. The removal of the trees relied on me seeking approval from my City Council, and they were very helpful throughout this process. Highly recommended!
Isaac and his team were fantastic. Extremely polite and helpful with my constant questions. Hard working (even in the heavy downpours) and Isaac ensured the highest quality product but at a really competitive price. Highly recommended.
Isaac and his team did a fantastic job on the front path and wall repairs needed. I have got quotes for more work and fully intend to use them again! They were considerate of the needs I had and my budget as well. They were quick too and worked around my working hours. I am really pleased with how it all looks now, they have done a brilliant job!!
