“Harry James produced a fabulously well crafted and executed garden for my house. It is a complete pleasure to spend time in, in sun, rain or cloud. He interpreted the ideas wonderfully from the point of construction right through to planting. He was also a complete pleasure to work with.”
“Dear Harry, I wanted to thank you again for the brilliant job you did creating the patio in my back garden. It really is a thing of beauty and so well constructed, I love it! I’m grateful for your advice and creative ideas as we went along. When my neighbour next door saw the patio, she was really impressed, but then disappointed to learn you were leaving London and that my patio was your last London job. I feel really lucky that you were able to take on my patio before your move.
Wishing you all the very best. Best regards,
Kathy Karavas, Herne Hill
“Harry and team did a fabulous job on my new patio. Harry arrived promptly to discuss quotes and provided a full breakdown with tips on making the best of the job and on planting and making the most of the surrounding space. They arrived promptly throughout, were friendly, courteous, knowledgeable and professional, and completed to a high standard. I’ve had lots of congratulations from friends and neighbours since and am delighted. I’ll be booking harry again to help with my trees and roses.

“We recently moved to a flat in South London with a small garden. The garden space had not been well kept and needed substantial work. We planned to redesign the space with raised beds and a sandstone paved central area for eating. After seeking estimates for the work from a variety of sources we decided to go with Harry James Gardens. The deciding factor was principally around the fact that Harry turned up at the exact time he said he would, provided a quote within 24 hours and also seemed very sensitive to style of garden we were aiming for. He clearly had a wealth of experience in landscaping work and seemed entirely unphased by some of the more challenging aspects of the task! He booked us in for work to begin within a couple of months and started exactly as planned.
In terms of the work done, we couldn’t be happier. The end result has exceeded our expectations and the work was completed on time and within budget. It would be remiss not to add that Harry and his team managed to cart nearly 3 tonnes of soil and rubble through our flat during the days and every day we returned home to a clean flat! We can unreservedly recommend their services!”

“Harry and his team did a fantastic job, turning our drab, derelict London garden into a pretty, welcoming space in a short time for a reasonable price. Harry was good at listening to and translating our ideas, but also made some very useful suggestions of his own. We’d definitely recommend him. ”

“I am delighted with the garden makeover Harry and his team did for me. From pruning, cutting down, and removing old overgrown bushes, to laying a brick patio with retaining wall and putting up new fencing, they worked efficiently and sensitively.
They took great care not to damage the plants I wanted to keep, and discussed design features and materials with me at every stage. They also cleaned up at the end of every day’s work and made sure no snagging details were left unsolved at the end. I would recommend them to anyone wanting a thorough job done” .

“We highly recommend Harry James for all garden landscaping. In March 2015 he landscaped our back garden, which included a garden path, wooden decking and a brick paved area and he also completely transformed our front garden, removing the old concrete and putting down gravel, building a low pillared brick wall and preparing new borders. He listened carefully to our ideas, came up with solutions to problems and worked tirelessly irrespective of the weather. Altogether we were delighted with his high standards of workmanship and the overall results which exceeded our expectations”.

“We recently employed Harry James Gardens to re-model our garden and in particular to lay an extensive section of York paving. This required moving a substantial amount of stone through our house in very narrow confines and up and down a number of levels. This they accomplished with minimum disruption without causing any damage and (to my mind) with an amazing degree of cheerfulness. The resulting path is a triumph and precisely fills the brief.
We have been entirely happy with them at every stage of the process and we would recommend Harry’s services without hesitation.”

“Dear Harry, we are absolutely thrilled with the work you have done in the garden. If you ever need a written reference then do please let me know”
