Delivered us a prompt & precise scheme that satisfied both the council’s planning requirements & the client’s needs, whilst offering practical & knowledgeable advice to achieve a diverse landscaping design that balanced aesthetics against financial & maintenance constraints.
We found our experience of working with Tristen enjoyable, informative and productive….all in the right measure. He was extremely responsive and went the extra mile to understand our National Trust property and work with the team here.
From design consultation through until completion of our first phase, we have been constantly delighted with the quality of our engagement with Tristen and his team. We have had many favourable comments around the contemporary nature of his design and are hugely excited to be using Tristen to bring our plot to a finish through phase 2 in Spring 2016.
Tristen has an amazing eye for detail. He designed the new beds to reflect the shape and design of our house. He also noticed that we could see an ugly telegraph pole when looking at the garden from our kitchen window and planted a tree to hide it from our view. He listened carefully to what we wanted from the garden and came up with a design that ensured we had colour and interest in the garden all year round. We have really enjoyed seeing the garden develop during its first year and Tristen has been on hand to advise when needed.
Having pondered and tried to make something of an odd shaped area of our garden with poor soil and poor drainage we finally called in a professional garden designer. Tristen Knight listened carefully to our wishes and discussed the planting and shaping of the area to fully understand how we wished to see and use it. He took detailed measurements and levels and two weeks later presented us with a professionally produced plan with which we were delighted. He had turned our random ideas into a flowing layout with all the functionality and planting we required in a geometric form that would never have occurred to us. We can't wait for the autumn and the start of the works and to see it flourish next spring!
Tristen designed and installed a planting scheme for both our front and back gardens. He took the few ideas we had and expanded them into something that we could never have achieved on our own - a garden that has plants which are not only thriving in the awkward shape and position of some of our beds but are also a pleasure to look at. He was extremely professional throughout, clearly knowledgeable and the work was carried out on schedule and within agreed budget. Tristen has also spent time teaching us how to care for the range of plants throughout the year. We would recommend Tristen unreservedly.
Tristen came highly recommended to me and I'm pleased to say he has lived up to it! He quickly got to grips with our requirements as well as the site's constraints to deliver a well thought out and attractive landscape scheme, which we have been extremely pleased with
Tristan's proposed design for our garden is inspiring and we can't wait to move on to the next stage of implementing the plans. Tristan has been a delight to work with and extremely professional. We feel in safe hands.
