I required a new patio and pathway through the garden with sustainable edging. I had been living with greying slippery concrete slabs and inadequate pathway and rotting wooden edging. I am now the proud owner of a patio with porcelain slabs, porcelain edging to the pathway and new chippings. I am absolutely over the moon with how it looks. The work carried out was to a very high standard, efficiently and with great enthusiasm. I would highly recommend the workmanship and design.
We had a very serious surface water problem in our garden that literally turned the area into a swamp. We did our research on potential landscapers and finally selected Kerry Jackson.
We liked and appreciated his direct approach from the start. We went to see other projects that he had completed that reflected elements of our new garden and were very impressed by what we saw, and heard from the owners.
When it came to design, Kerry helped us to refine our initial ideas without influencing the finished item, it remained “our” garden throughout.
A major part of our project was groundwork, the removal of very poor ground material, the installation of a network of field drains and then re-instatement. After that came the landscaping.
Throughout the works we were kept fully informed of progress and plan for the next week and the movement in and out of materials. Kerry and his team worked meticulously and very hard, and kept our surroundings remarkably clean and tidy throughout. Large helpings of both good nature and humour made the experience both stress free and enjoyable.
We are delighted with the results, beyond anything we had imagined. Work was completed earlier than expected and with no nasty surprises or hidden extras, just as we had been told it would be.
We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jackson Landscape Design, and Kerry Jackson himself.
Absolutely delighted with Kerry’s work. He has transformed our old, tired, crazy paved patio into a new, granite, thing of beauty. The work was done on time, on budget, despite awful weather, and with unfailing good humour. We will definitely use Jackson’s again for our next project and unreservedly recommend Kerry.
We contacted Jackson’s Landscape Design among others for a quote to complete work on our drive. Kerry came round and because of his fantastic ideas, we also used him to landscape our rear garden with 3 adjoining patios, an artificial lawn, a wrap around drive and a transformation on our tired old front wall and pillars. Seeing the quality of his work online, we thought that he would be beyond our price range. He came in the middle of three quotes and we are so glad we chose him as his work is outstanding and his attention to detail is second to none. He explained everything that he was doing all throughout the process and we cannot recommend him highly enough.
What a great job!
Just wanted to add that we are very pleased with what Kerry did – it was not an easy job (and starting in November was adding a further complication when working in Okehampton) – but we now look at the drive and fully appreciate the skills and workmanship.
There were lots of things that could have gone wrong – my main concerns were getting the roots of a large tree out without damaging the water, electricity or gas mains. Kerry managed this aspect well and we had no interruptions. The waste was always removed in a timely manner and his attitude towards our neighbours was very professional and they were kept informed and inconvenienced as little as possible (if at all). Progress on our job was only hampered by the weather but Kerry kept us informed. All deliveries were planned and access was maintained as he had a vision of how the drive and paving would look and set about the sequencing to deliver a fabulous end result. Kerry and his team paid particular attention to setting out and getting the foundations right – this shows in the final result and the drainage. They were a pleasure to work with and dealt with any problems (an unexpected inspection cover) in a pragmatic and considered way that fits within the overall design.
For anyone using Kerry for the first time, our advice would be to allow him the freedom to put together a design and direction in terms of materials and colours. We did and would not hesitate to use Jacksons Landscape Design again.
Kerry did an amazing job on my patio. It was a tricky job but he took the time to go through everything with me and consult me fully. Rarely do you find a tradesman who is as open and honest, great job Kerry! Fully recommend him.
From start to finish Kerry was very professional & done a great job. A very solid Block paver driveway for motorhome to park on.
We have had a tired patio and misshaped pond replaced by Jackson’s Landscape Design. Mr Jackson helped us with the design to get the look we wanted – beautiful pale granite paving set off with charcoal edging around the edge, laid sympathetically with the style of pond, as well as replacement fencing. Communication was excellent and they secured the perimeter each night to protect our pet until the border fence was up. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
No one more professional than this guy, excellent communication every step of the way with excellent results, thank you Mr Jackson
We have just recently had Jackson’s Landscape Design complete some paving and garden design work to the rear and side of our home – which included a hot tub installation. Absolutely thrilled with the end results! Above and beyond our expectations!!
We did the usual and had a variety of quotes from different companies and Jackson’s were the final quote and within 10 minutes of meeting Kerry we knew he was the man for the job. He spent time really understanding what we wanted and gave us a few options – and different products. Kerry spent time ensuring that we were happy with the design and kept us updated at every stage. Their cleanliness and preciseness of the works is second to none. Even our neighbours commented on how tidy and professional they are. Whilst they weren’t the cheapest of the quotes received in our opinion they have given us such amazing value. Using really good quality products.
Anyone looking to get any works done to their garden home or driveway I would definitely recommend them. Kerry and Adam are the loveliest and most professional tradesmen we have ever had the pleasure of meeting and we will certainly ask them again to complete some more work which we have planned in the future.
So far everyone whose come to see the new garden have asked for their number! Thanks so much! If I could give you 6 stars I would.
