Below are a small selection of the many letters we have received over the years from our clients.
"How can we ever thank you enough for such generosity to us at the time of our marriage?
We were so touched to receive your proposals for the wonderful new Rowan arbour and it will always be a treasured reminder of your kindness and thoughtfulness on a very special occasion - even though that occasion ended up being somewhat later then anticipated...
Your beautiful Hornbeam seat is greatly appreciated & will soon find itself a special position in the gardens"
HRH Charles and Camilla of Highgrove - 29/04/2005
"I would like to thank the whole team for all their hard work which has resulted in a lovely drive and garden, this has raised a lot of praise from friends and neighbours and one neighbour remarked on how hard your guys worked while they were here.
Once again thanks for your very kind assistance."
Your execution of the project from initial consultation, through the planning stage, then sheer hard work , reaching the creative conclusion has been a delight to observe.
We really would like to commend the care, consideration and commitment of all those on your teams who worked on the project. We had complete confidence in leaving them to get on with the job.It was remarkable to see order brought out of chaos and the drawing and design come to reality.We are delighted with the end result
"After employing a second contractor to complete the hard landscaping of our garden after the first failed to complete the job, we were left feeling a little disillusioned with the stark concrete terracing and decided to look for landscaper that could handle the planting and to soften the effect left by the 2 previous companies. With some trepidation due to past experiences we looked on the web for a local company and came across Creative Landscapes, their web site looked delightful and we made an appointment for the following weekend. The owner and Managing Director, Keith Southall came to view our garden and from the first meeting we were impressed with his knowledge and confident manner. Keith talked us through the options and spent time showing us pictures of various work he had undertaken, he made careful notes of our likes and dislikes and made several recommendations, including incorporating a water feature that could cascade down the terracing to bring movement and life to the garden. After agreeing final designs, Keith's team arrived to undertake the extensive tree cutting and planting and working on their own initiatives as we were both out at work all day, they created us a beautiful garden that was just as Keith had explained. The water feature has become the centre piece of a truly remarkable outside living space and the overall effect is quite spectacular. We would not hesitate to recommend Creative Landscapes and would like to pass on our thanks to the various specialised teams, all of whom have helped to created a very special place for us to enjoy year after year. Keith, you inspired us with what could be achieved, and with your experienced workers, you delivered us everything you had promised. Many thanks to everyone at Creative Landscapes that worked on our project."

"Thank you all so much for my beautiful garden- I am absolutely thrilled with it.
I really do appreciate all the very hard work that each and every one of the team put in and thank you for making the whole project run so smoothly and completely stress free for me."
S.C. Stourbridge - November 2012
"Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for all your hard work in transforming our "rubbish heap" into a lovely, functional garden once more. We shall enjoy looking out at the garden now and relaxing out on the patio. Thank you again for doing a fantastic job."
C.M. - October 2012
"Creative Landscapes have proved to be a company to be reckoned with. From the initial planning of our children's garden to the final outcome of a fully fledged landscaped area, Keith Southall and his "Creative" team have not disappointed us. The team worked tirelessly within a tight deadline under severe wintery conditions to make our garden what it is - a children's nursery garden equipped with log cabin, castle facade, vegetable and orchard areas, sand and ball bits, exotic shrubs, covered areas for displays and performances, bat and hedgehog boxes, two generous lawns, musical gazebo, gateways and pathways and beautifully created rustic walls. The standard of care and attention to detail has been very high and the team were all most receptive to new ideas whilst work was in progress. Creative Landscapes is a company that takes pride in it's work. It goes almost almost without mention that we strongly recommend the company to any prospective garden enthusiast. We are left with an ongoing sweet and contented feeling that our children from now on will delight in the wonders of nature and exploration within a safe and invigorating environment."

"We are highly delighted with the results and feel we must pass comment on Steve and Brian. They were so pleasant and helpful leaving no mess whatsoever. Steve was brilliant helping us choose the plants, moving them around so we could see different ideas. He made us us realise we would have planted some in the wrong place!"

"We have finally finished all the work on the house and, of all the things we have done, we are definitely most pleased with the garden, it really does give us a huge amount of pleasure. ***** is particularly thrilled by the wide range of birds that have already become visitors. We would like to thank you for the way the whole project was managed and have to say that the attitude shown by your team was excellent. They were always punctual, polite and took a pride in doing the job well, which seems to be a less than common trait these days."

"A sloping muddy patch of builder's rubble, after only 15 working days, has been transformed into a beautiful, low-maintainenance 3-level garden. It couldn't have happened without Mick and his men who worked so skillfully and industriously in all weathers. They were always courteous and helpful and were a great team to have around."

"My wife and I are delighted with our new garden, which has been transformed from a bare "new estate plot". The finished result is exactly how we imagined it would be & friends & family have been impressed with the standard of workmanship. We would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone considering having their garden landscaped."

"Both ****** and I are really thrilled by the new terrace. It is stylish, beautifully built and fits in with the house so well. As i said last night, it seems as if the house has been waiting a hundred years for this to happen!
The stone and brick work will be a joy to behold for the rest of our lives here and seeing that quality of workmanship unfold over the last five weeks has been a fascinating experience."
JP - 19/06/1997
"When we look at our garden now, we just can't believe the transformation. Our friends and relatives have visited and have looked in disbelief and envy. We felt we just had to write and tell you how pleased we are with our new garden."
