Some of the things people say about work we’ve done for them …

From the very first encounter with Gary May, playing golf with him and discovering his love for garden design, I knew that he could interpret our somewhat patchy ideas for our garden into reality!

From the initial consultation and the beautifully laid out drawings and planting schemes to a personal visit to the nursery, Gary and Globe Gardens designed a garden that makes us smile every time we walk into it – he has delivered on a scale way beyond our imagination, let alone our expectation. There’s a new little surprise explosion of colour and texture every few weeks as the various plants come alive – we certainly have a garden that lives on through the seasons!

We can’t thank you enough for the way our garden has turned out.”

What we did for Sandy and Colin: Garden design and planting plan

It’s easy these days to research potential garden designers. Many have similar qualifications, experience, recommendations and could probably all be competitive price-wise.

So why did I go with Gary at Globe Gardens?

Simple. He listened to what I wanted, recommended shortfalls I had missed and, most of all, he cared as if it was his own garden, he cared a great deal. This, in my mind, set him far apart from the rest.

So after the work is done am I happy? Yes very.

Does my garden make me smile? Yes, every single day.

Thanks Gary for your time, consideration hard work, true professionalism and for caring about my garden. I am very grateful!”

Gary at Globe Gardens has been working with us for a year, starting with full design, into build and then onto maintenance. The project was not easy, starting as it did with a large unkempt area with very little existing garden. In the design phase Gary really helped us clarify what we wanted to achieve. In the build phase he turned the design and vision into reality on time and within budget.

Since completion Gary has done a great job keeping the garden looking great, knowing so well what needs to be done.

For a small enterprise Globe Gardens did a great job on the scale of the project. Gary used his network of high quality subcontractors to help with hard landscaping and in the Maintenance phase he sourced a great Lawn guy to keep on top of the weekly mowing.

Gary is very personable, honest, reliable and hard working with a high level of skill and ability. We would have no hesitation in recommending him.”

Before meeting with Globe Gardens I had a sort of vague plan in my head but with very little money I was going to let it design itself organically over time. I thought that professional garden design was not something I could afford. I was wrong and the modest investment made in getting a plan on paper is money well spent. Gary took considerable time to discover the kind of planting, designs, colours, low/high maintenance gardening that would suit me.

Now I have something that’s delightful and I can’t wait to get stuck in to turning it into reality. I didn’t want a garden that could be turned out perfectly in one summer. This will be a labour of love and I know that Gary is ready to help and offer advice if and when it’s needed.”
