Revamp of pocket garden replacing the old decking and fencing and removal of the back gate and steps a sandstone paving area and artificial grass.

"We are delighted with the work John and Matthew have done revamping our pocket garden under difficult weather conditions. It looks so much better than we had imagined an absolute transformation of the garden, which has been admired by friends and family. John keeps you informed of what he is doing , gives good advice and his work is faultless, I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone looking for the highest quality finish."

Replaced weathered decking on roof top balcony and water damaged wooden panels.
 
Cost: £300
 

"Shepherds have been great from start to finish. I was undecided on whether to use wooden decking or composite decking and Shepherds were very patient and answered any questions promptly and with good advice. I had taken my time to read reviews and speak with friends who had had work carried out by Shepherds and I wasn't disappointed. So much so that my neighbour is now having an outdoor dining area created by Shepherds. No hesitation in recommending!"

Preparing the ground including anti-weed growth and drainage measures; laying the turf; filling two of the borders with our selected gravel type; and installation of our new deck.
 
Cost: £3400
 

"John and his very capable assistant Simon did an impeccable job installing our deck and turfed garden with gravel border. We found the long wait (on waiting list) to be well worth it! The service from start to finish has been great. John and his team are very professional, friendly, hard working and insightful. We initially gawked a bit at the cost, but are very pleased with the result and feel that it was good value for money. Superb job!"

New patio and decking installed in back garden
 
Cost: £3100
 

"Couldn't be happier with the new patio and Decking installed in back garden. John has transformed my back garden he is very hardworking with great eye for detail was very helpful with suggestions on little things that I didn't think of to help improve the garden He is very punctual, tidy and courteous worker making sure everything was tidy and put at end of each day so our puppy wouldn't be harmed.

Communication was excellent throughout the process with Laura dealing with any questions before John started the job in a prompt and detailed manner. When job started John kept in contact regurly with updates as due to working outside in the great Scottish weather being unpredictable. Highly recommend this country and looking forward to using them in future for all my landscaping and building needs.

Thanks so much Shepherd's landscaping and building

Michael and Claire Coleman"

Dense block retaining wall built to create a usable patio area and entertaining space with raised planters. Formation of new path and steps to garden and decorative garden fence and trellis panels installed.
 
Cost: £5000
 

"Prior to commencement on site, Shepherds communication was first class. We were keep up to date on the proposed programme, materials and associated costs. Shepherds effortlessly meet our aspirations of design and material finishes while working within the constraints of our total budget.Cost effective material samples were offered for approval in a timely manner and exceeded our expectations.

Shepherds arrived on time on the agreed start date and got straight to work, even though the weather was against John he braved the wind and torrential rain and started to construct our retaining wall.

Shepherds took their time setting out and getting their levels and was obvious that John had a good eye for detail and was meticulous & methodical in the way he approached all aspects of his job.

As the job progressed John often suggested small details and ideas to help improve and finish the overall scheme as per our initial aspirations and was easy to discuss any element that we wanted to amend or expand on.

John happily undertook some additional areas of work at an agreed rate prior to starting so we were aware of all costs.

Having worked in architecture for the past 15 years i can honestly say John is a hard working and trusted landscaper with a good degree of technical knowledge and skill set with an eye for detail and design.

We are very pleased with the final result and exceptional value for money.It has been an enjoyable stress free process and would highly recommend Shepherds landscaping for your building and landscaping needs."
