Hello, my name is Kerry Jackson and I am the principle designer and proprietor of Jackson’s Landscape Design, based in Newton Abbot, Devon.
I am extremly proud that my company has firmly established as one of the South-West's leading garden design and landscaping companies, with an ever growing reputation for creating and installing bespoke contemporary and traditional gardens, I also design and build rammed earth garden structures, domestic driveways and garden patios with a passion, regardless of the size.
JLD are a national, multi Southwest regional and nationally a highly commended award winner for our bespoke garden design and installation procedures, with additional accolades for our contemporary show gardens and is regarded by the UK's largest hard landscaping manufacturers, Marshall's, as a leader in modern garden design and landscaping. Our work is described by Marshall's Group Marketing Director, Chris Harrop, as 'an absolute stunner', and is chosen as Marshall’s marketing images for their national brochures.
Contemporary garden design and landscaping is such a diverse and complex subject that I could not begin to explain all of it to you in this brief introduction.
What I do know is that I have a strong affinity for what I am doing that I do not consider garden design and landscaping a job, I genuinely feel that I have found my vocation. What you have just read might sound a little over dramatic but I cannot think of a better way of explaining my practice and role within the landscape design profession.
I started working within gardens and landscaping in 1986 and over this time gained priceless experience and knowledge in all aspects of my profession that I am now able to put into every project I create. There is one missing ingredient though that is needed and that is you, the client. Your aspirations, combined with my creativity, passion and skills can be mixed together to create an external area that is truly unique for you, your family, your home or work environment.
We have extensive knowledge of materials both for aesthetic visual impact but just as importantly, for build strength and integrity - did you know that 30-50% (and sometimes more) of a landscaped gardens' build cost can be hidden from view; either underground or as a component part that is aiding its strength and support? I’ll advise you on all materials and every aspect of the build up of your new garden as I couldn't create your garden if you had no idea exactly what is required to hold the whole project together.
I believe JLD have earned a reputation for creating extremely stylish modern gardens that are a mixed fusion of contemporary design, innovative materials and bold coordinated architectural planting schemes, through to soft, naturalistic styles. We are specialists at integrating light, plants, colour, water, glass, acrylic, steel, sculpture and furniture to our garden designs and installations.
My profession is to translate your aspirations into modern, usable, social environment with cutting edge design, creating a stunning contemporary external room for seasonal use. My sole priority is to create and install the finest external living spaces nationwide, with the fusion of clarity, design, innovative material and bold coordinated planting to create a bespoke, unique space of art, crafted around you.
Client referral, communication, finesse and sympathetic regard to your property are our foundations within this practice. We don't however limit ourselves to Devon and Cornwall, as we will travel to any location in the UK should our quality gardens and service be required.
I really look forward to viewing your proposed garden areas and discussing what we can do for you, please call for an informal discussion.
