I made contact with Holland Landscapes and their designer Kate as I was gathering quotes for some relatively extensive hard and soft landscaping work we had planned for our garden. I was impressed by Chris and Paul’s professionalism and passion for their work and knew immediately they would be easy to work with on our projects.
They were patient throughout the design and preparation process and Kate came up with some fantastic planting schemes that were in keeping with what I had asked for. She was also unfazed when I changed my mind about a major part of the design and showed her talent when she came up with a completely new idea she had seen at the gardens of Hatfield House, meadow-planted slopes in a sunken garden. Paul is clearly plugged in to the latest technologies and products in his industry and he suggested using a ready-planted meadow mat for immediate impact. This has become the highlight of our garden, thanks to their combined efforts. The Holland Landscapes teams who worked at the house were friendly, respectful and hardworking, all important elements when they are at your home for months at a time.
As with all large projects we had some issues that came up; drainage issues, a few plants died, and these were dealt with promptly and professionally. I cannot recommend Holland Landscapes enough. They are not the cheapest landscapers out there but you get what you pay for; a beautiful, unique, inspiring and high-quality garden that will stand the test of time. I will not hesitate to hire Holland Landscapes and Tapestry Design Studio again for future works.
