Robin's Glorious Gardens

Love your oasis

Customer Testimonials

Paul C.: Robin came and reshaped, reordered, and revitalised my tired garden. It has been a joy from start to finish. Robin not only works tirelessly, he listens and has delivered a result that I couldn't be more delighted with. I recommend Robin and his team unreservedly.

Sarah R. :  Further to the wonderful transformations and garden designs that Robin and crew deliver, they also undertake routine maintenance and smaller jobs. As time starved professionals we find this highly beneficial as we do not have the bandwidth to take care of our garden and give it the full attention it requires. As a result it gets very untidy and messy so we have called upon Robin a number of times now to restore our garden to a weed free, pruned back, manicured lawn, cleanly paved and pleasant environment for us to enjoy without any of the pain and hassle. Robin and team are easy to get along with, flexible, knowledgeable, and highly reliable. If you are looking for a gardener to do a bit of regular maintenance then I fully recommend Robin’s Glorious Gardens.

Rachel: I couldn't be more delighted with my new patio which Robin has changed overnight from a sad and unused space to a place which feels private and loved. Robin followed my brief exactly and the quality of the plants and impact far outweighed my expectations. I couldn't recommend his services more!

Jenny: I highly recommend Robin and Ellie from Robin's Glorious Gardens! They have literally transformed our garden from a dumping yard into a calming family garden! They worked really closely with us to create a creative space for our daughter to have her very own mini garden and have literally brought the wildlife back into our garden. They have been a pleasure to work with and I look forward to having them round for summer drinks once the plants are more established!
Susan G: Oh my goodness. I am so, so pleased. You interpreted my requirements perfectly.
A poet (T E Brown) once said "A garden is a lovesome thing" - well mine wasn't, but it is now. You have really transformed what was once very unlovely into something that is now very lovesome indeed. It's now a garden I can tend to with great enjoyment as it grows and becomes more glorious. 
You are lovely people who I enjoyed having around and chatting to, so please don't hesitate to refer anyone to me who wants a testimonial, you're very definitely worth it!
Creena: Thank you both for an excellent job in our front garden .
A really great choice of plants, it's made our front
garden look modern, exotic and outstanding.
I could go on and on..It brought tears to my eyes, I was
so overwhelmed.  Both of you and your team
worked really hard and delivered more than we could
have imagined.

A BIG THANK YOU
Owen and Creena
Gerard B: A belated entry as RGG created our truly glorious garden back in June and I guess we're still reeling from the (culture) shock. It's been a completely transformative experience; physically, our garden is unrecognisable (check the before and after photos) and we now have a space to inhabit and enjoy. Even our often cynical teenage kids are impressed ("it's like being abroad"). Everyone who has seen it is amazed, from "wow" to "beautiful" through "very Zen, man". I had a very clear idea of what I wanted; a cool, minimalist (low maintenance!) urban garden but somewhere comfortable and aesthetically pleasing, too (not too much to ask then?!). Some of what I had in mind was unrealistic for our budget, but Robin and Ellie worked with us on the design and then did an incredible job of actually realising what I'd had in mind! To cap it all, they added some of their own creative flourishes and their choice of plants was spot on. When our new garden was revealed, it was actually a very moving experience. And... it only took them three days! Thanks to a terrific team, Robin, Ellie and Zed. Very, very impressed.
Pammy G: I found Robin's Glorious Gardens via streetlife.com, I just searched gardener and hoped for the best!! As soon as I met Robin and Ellie, I warmed to them immediately and decided I didn't need a second quote as the job was theirs. I had quite strong ideas in which I knew what I wanted and I very much appreciated they collaborated with my wishes. Although a small city garden, it was full of big projects and after 4 days of accurate measurements, patience with my decisions and great communication, Ellie, Robin and Zed transformed my outdoor living into a beautiful and blissful daily experience. I witnessed their love for gardening, sheer energy and superior brawn to turn my ideas into a masterpiece and create a sanctuary that's now the envy of family and friends. I have recommended and praised RGG to no end, the team's warm nature and professionalism was sorely missed as soon as the garden was completed. In my search I hoped for the best and got the best! Thank you very much.

Debbie O: A few weeks ago I asked if anyone could recommend a gardener as I've had some not great experiences in the past.  Robin and Ellie were recommended and have just finished 2 day's work. My garden has been not only transformed but is a place of peace and rest.  It looks great but there is an indefinable quality that I think is there because Robin really pauses and pays attention to where things go, how they look, and how the whole garden talks to each other.  It is remarkable, so if you are needing anything doing, however big or small, i can highly recommend. Robin describes himself as a garden artist, and he is - he painted a garden for me.

Christine: The Team made my garden beautiful with imaginative planting. I can't believe how much bigger it looks. They cheerfully worked like Trojans all day, cleared up and removed all the rubbish. Their blend of practical skills, creative eye and pure artistry is brilliant. I would unreservedly recommend them to anyone and they are such very lovely people!

Karen A: I can highly recommend Robin and Ellie. Creative, efficient with time and resources, all round lovely people and worth every penny! To anyone needing garden makeovers or tidy, you can't go wrong with this lot. :)

Nicolai: I thought I'd give some feedback on Robin and Ellie's work on our garden earlier this year.

The photos on Robin's site speak for themselves: before and after, just 6 days apart. And in between lie only....Robin and Ellie! Can you believe it?!

Robin and Ellie did an absolutely amazing job. It has been a complete transformation, a major boost in quality of life in our own four walls, and a source of much happiness since. We started out with a jungle in our backyard and only the vaguest notion that we would like some vaguely Japanese features in the garden. So Robin came up with a plan that looked great, we agreed a budget, and he and Ellie went off and did their thing. They chose the perfect plants - many of which I had never seen before - and came up with a beautiful, elegant, harmonious arrangement that magically took shape day by day.

The best was the extent of personal commitment. Robin and Ellie did way more than deliver a garden to agreement. I watched how much they got into doing it, how much time they spent thinking about how to make it even better, lots of little surprises they managed to put in here and there that made it so much better than anything we had thought of - it looked more like a genuine labour of love than a garden delivered to a budget (which, by the way, they did too). They flexibly accommodated ideas that came up while the garden was developing, and were simply a joy to work with - it was a great collaboration, with all the best contributions being theirs.

As you can tell I'm completely delighted with what Robin and Ellie did here. It was outstanding work, a great achievement, and a genuine pleasure to work with them.

Ellen: Cannot thank Robin, Ellie and Zed enough for transforming my wilderness into a lovely garden. I would not hesitate to use them again or to recommend them to anyone.

Kazza: I am absolutely delighted with my glorious garden! It's way beyond what I envisioned or dared to hope for and considering my garden was a complete mess with some quirky things to work around, I am amazed - and impressed - at the short time it took to be transformed. Robin and Ellie really listened to my thoughts but best of all, they offered some unique and fantastic solutions that I never would have thought of. Their ability to 'see the possibilities' is inspiring and the end result is now my little oasis. My garden is truly glorious now, a beautiful place to spend time in and easy to maintain. The small bouquet of cut flowers they left on the dining table on the last day was a thoughtful, personal touch, which made me smile, and felt like getting a hug. It demonstrates the care and thoughtfulness they apply to their projects. Robin's Glorious Gardens truly goes the extra mile, is reasonably priced as well, and worth every penny. Can't recommend them highly enough!

Adele: Thanks Robin and Ellie! Our front garden lawn WAS taken over by weeds and our attempt at growing was a disaster! But they listened to my brief of colourful flowers and new lawn and they worked tirelessly to achieve it - in one day and in the rain (great for the new lawn). Four weeks on and it still looks amazing (thanks to the tips they gave me). Also, thanks Ellie for tidying my drive (no easy task). I would highly recommend them, they work fast, are very friendly and listen to what you want and really care they get it right.

Sam: Thanks so much Robin and Ellie. My garden looks AMAZING, I can't stop looking at it. The new lawn looks gorgeous but the raised beds have given it much more character. You were also incredibly easy to deal with, professional, courteous and downright lovely! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking to get work done in the garden. Thanks again!

Nikki W: Thanks so much to Robin and Ellie for the work on my garden - I'm really pleased with the results. I needed some rotten decking removing, repairs to old raised beds and some new ones constructing and right for the word go I felt akin to them both. They really understood my needs and offered ideas themselves, working to make a really great bespoke result. I'll definitely use Robin and Ellie again if need work doing and highly recommend them :)

John and May: Our garden has been transformed from a building site to a Glorious Garden. Much thanks for the hard work from Robin and Ellie.

Lata: A lovely garden transformation done by Robin. We love our new garden.....its a small world away from the busy life....feels so calm when we step out and see such beauties. We are so glad we let you take the decision on the makeover. Thanks Robin.
Sonya: Robin & his team helped us clear out our new garden last weekend which included some quite heavy duty work of digging up some trees and a lot of concrete. They were a pleasure to work with and couldn't have done it without them. Robin was also happy to give plenty of advice for future planting and turf laying. Would definitely recommend.

Ibi: Really impressed with the work Robin and Ellie have done with my garden this weekend. It has gone from being an overgrown forest to an actual garden that I can start putting to good use. They are professional but also very friendly. I would use them again and recommend them highly.

LisaThank you, Robin and Ellie, for doing such a great job on my garden. It has really been rejuvenated - I can't wait to start doing some new planting now that light can finally get in! Thanks very much for all your hard work.

AlexandraReally pleased with the work Robin and Ellie did clearing my garden - it was a tough job and they made it look easy! Very friendly, efficient and professional, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Robin for all your garden needs!

Anthony: Having just moved into our new home, Robin transformed our garden from an unsightly wilderness into a beautiful canvas ready for a work of art! He was very professional, passionate and worked extremely hard to ensure that my wife and I could move into our new home with ease and not stress about the state of the garden. He also did a fantastic job mending the broken fences. I can't wait to work with him again. Thank you Robin!
