We hired Yorkshire Gardens after spending over a year procrastinating endlessly over what to do with our fairly small garden – we felt it was a fairly hopeless situation as we could not imagine what could be done to turn it into a modern useable but low maintenance space – how wrong could you be! Our garden has been transformed from a soggy muddy square of grass to what we consider to be our ‘Outdoor Oasis’ – it truly feels like an extension of our home and we daily escape to it for relaxing, entertaining and enjoying with our family – we hardly spent anytime out there before.
Johns design is fantastic – we were stunned when we saw it come to life. His vision and creativeness is second to none as we have the most perfect space now and we know it is completely bespoke to us. We were grateful at our initial design consultation as he showed patience and genuine interest in our ideas and concerns about the project – of which we had many!
Darren and his team arrived one incredibly cold and frosty morning to start the work – we were excited but seriously apprehensive of how this was going to go as this was this was our first experience of a garden design – we needn’t have worried. Darren is a great communicator and put us at ease straight away – he kept us informed every day of what was happening, he has a great team that he works with, their work ethic is amazing, quick and professional always.
It is really hard to put into words how thrilled we are with all aspects of the project from concept, design, implementation to now enjoying it and watching as the planting changes and evolves – it has brought us immense pleasure and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Yorkshire Gardens 100% - neither would the bee’s!

I cannot recommend this company more, I contacted them, as I wanted decking, from my initial meeting with Darren I knew that I would employ the services of Yorkshire Gardens.
He was polite, friendly and obviously knew his job, a sketch of what I wanted was made, and I was given an acceptable price for the job, and two week later the work started.
The staff Joe and Jack were very friendly and hard working, they were very prompt and arrived at 7.30am on the dot.
The work started on Friday 17th March and was completed on Monday 20th March, the result is a fabulous very large decked area. Roll on summer.
Other gardening work is to be undertaken by Joe, so all in all, I am very pleased that I chose this local company, well done guys and thanks.

Visionary and flexible with the initial design, John quickly got to work. We had some weight issues to overcome from a structural point of view, but John was able to amend the design and come up with an even better end result. He took our views on board and happily accommodated changes along the way.
I’d strongly recommend John to anyone who needs inspiration and help designing and implementing a plan.
Tanya Wade, Tingley
We hired Yorkshire Gardens to redesign and carry out a complete makeover of our garden. We are exceptionally pleased with the end result and now have a garden that we love. Yorkshire Gardens are a very professional and knowledgeable company. I cannot speak highly enough about the attitude and the work ethic of the team that transformed our garden. Our project met our budget, was delivered in the time scale we expected and to an exceedingly high standard.
Peter Goldsborough, New Farnley
We are absolutely delighted with John's design and the way his team implemented his plan. John listened to our ideas and put them together with his own views for hard landscaping to create a wonderful garden that is filling out and blooming. The garden was delivered to the plan, on time and on budget A first class, hard working team - we have no hesitation in recommending Yorkshire Gardens.

We thankfully found our way to John after some disappointing meetings with landscape gardeners who seemed intent on projecting their own, sometimes farfetched, designs onto us without being willing to incorporate any of our own ideas. As our garden is awkwardly shaped and on a new build plot we needed to find a gardener who could maximise its potential.
In John we found a clearly talented and passionate landscape gardener who was only too willing to work with us and involve us in the design process. I think it’s fair to say we were probably quite demanding and fussy at times, but John showed great professionalism and patience throughout!
The result is a garden that we are really pleased with, and we particularly love our custom built pergola which should hopefully be covered by a beautiful vine in a year or two.
We would recommend John to anyone requiring quality landscaping services at a competitive price.
Roger and Marilyn Banister, Menston
John saw the potential of our garden and created an innovative and creative design. This was carried through to a very high standard and has surpassed our expectation. It has been an exciting journey! Thank you.
Harriet Allen, Chapel Allerton
I had needed a garden makeover for years. My garden was stony, slippery, overgrown, tired and dated. I wanted a low maintenance space I could sit in. What I got was beyond anything I could have imagined - a truly magical space. The design was inspirational. It included the terrace and low maintenance planting I had requested but went way way beyond that. John, the designer, gave me inspirational quirky details, like a gorgeous wooden staircase for the cats and a wall mounted mirror giving the illusion of an extended secret garden, as well as a layout and fencing that worked in total sympathy with the house. When it came to the actual work, the team were superb, led by Darren. Their knowledge, professionalism, work quality and attention to detail were fantastic. The work schedule and budget were exactly as described beforehand. The only difference is that, at every stage, my expectations were surpassed. as I watched my beautiful new space emerge. Now, it appears lit from within, even on dull days and it is a joy to be in, or look out on. In effect, I have a whole new room. I could not be happier and would recommend Yorkshire Gardens to anyone needing a superb, imaginative, individual, top-end garden.
Wendy and Steve Jones-Blackett, Chapel Allerton
Our garden now seems twice its original size, is easily manageable and suits the initial brief perfectly. Contemporary, well-designed and smart. It’s now a garden with a ‘wow’ factor. – Thanks very much!
Bobbie and Andy Gresser, Chapel Allerton
Absolutely Brilliant! John’s confidence and expertise empowered us to have the garden that we really wanted. We’d thought we had to live with a massive garage in the garden and we didn’t. The design process was excellent for exploring ideas and then the actual build was efficient, on time and extremely tidy.
Claire Rowlands, Leeds
I hadn’t fully decided what to do with my garden but John had some great ideas and although a garden is always a work in progress it looks pretty stunning.
Sarah Johnston-Knight, Pontefract
John and his team have transformed my garden into a beautiful and fantastic space to be. Not only does it tick all the boxes for me in terms of quiet places, healing herb beds, wildlife sanctuaries and energy flow, it’s also a wonderful playground for my children.
He arrived when he said he was going to, discussed what he was going to do and then did it.
Now all I need is someone to cut the grass!
Dominic Gray, Leeds
It’s lovely. John was very considerate, took all our ideas on board, tweaked them to make them better! The time, energy, expertise and consideration make their work a long-term investment, and for that the value is exceptional.
Philippa Marshall, Oxenhope
John came up with great design ideas and solutions that were tailored around our needs. I was really happy with the end result and loved the materials that were used for the design. John’s design was sympathetic to the surroundings and the whole place looks amazing.
The whole team worked really hard in all kinds of weather and they ensured that the site was tidy at the end of each day. They were a pleasure to have around and I was genuinely sorry to see them leave.
Thank you to the whole team.

We took on a huge project with our fairly large sized garden. It was a complete mess, overgrown with weeds, potholes and a great big concrete slab. It needed some major work.
After a number of quotes from landscaping firms, I contacted Yorkshire Gardens. Instantly they stood out compared to the rest. The attention to detail, professionalism and high quality of work was fantastic. Darren spoke to me about various designs plants etc and didn't get frustrated when I kept making changes to the plan. Darren and his team turned up on time, worked hard and cleaned up after themselves. They were polite, professional and trustworthy.
We've used so many companies on various projects throughout the years and have never come across such a great level of customer service and aftercare. Yorkshire Gardens didn't let me down with a single thing and I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a revamp or a whole new garden. They are magic!
