Classic and Contemporary Garden Designs


I’m very pleased to list feedback from Clients here.  All these reviews can be found for my site on Google and also on Trustpilot.

Simon, Norwich (2023)

“I just want to say a massive thank you for all the work and ideas that Richard has put into our little space. From start to finish Richard’s communication was fantastic, he listened to our ideas but also brought his own. The three designs that Richard worked up for us were fantastic and have helped us to build our own little haven which he have sat in and smiled all Spring, Summer and Autumn! We look forward to working with Richard to keep the garden perfect and would heartily recommend to anybody! I should also say that Ian and his team (the landscapers that Richard recommended) were fantastic and worked quickly and efficiently to get the garden to together. Thank you!!!”

Rob, Gorleston (2023)

“I really enjoyed working with Richard, he engaged with us really well which meant the design produced was what we wanted and cost effective, and looked great, so we were really pleased, and hope to work with him again. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others.”

Tony, Cringleford (2023)

“Richard completely redesigned my suburban garden from being a boring old lawn edged by trees and shrubs to one with paths, a formal circular pond, a wildlife pond, a summerhouse and a greenhouse. He designed the landscaping and planting, including a wide variety of trees, shrubs and perennials. He engaged me, my brother and my mum at each stage and once the hard landscaping was done, he procured the plants and did all the planting. Very nice to work with and very good value. I would would highly recommend him. Tony.”

Matt, Little Plumstead (2022)

“We have just had an absolutely wonderful garden installed by Richard! Could not recommend him enough and have already advised all friends and colleagues of his fantastic work.”

Melonie and Dan, Fakenham (2021)

“We could not be happier with the work of Richard and his team at RW Gardens. He transformed our uninspiring small garden into a beautiful retreat in just a few short weeks.  Throughout the design stage Richard understood what we were looking for. We are novice gardeners and he came up with a great design and a wonderful choice and supply of plants that really exceeded our expectations.  We love the end result, thank you Richard.”

Lucy, Little Plumstead (2021)

“We have just had Richard design and landscape our garden and could not be happier with it – the spec, the finish, the service, the quality and professionalism.
Richard was recommended to us by a friend for his unique balance of knowledge, passion and ability for both landscaping and gardening, and that recommendation was spot on.
We really appreciated Richard’s honesty and knowledge during the design process – taking on feedback and happy to make changes but equally comfortable to challenge if our idea wouldn’t quite work. He was incredibly professional throughout the process and was clean and tidy whilst doing the work.  I would highly recommend Richard and will absolutely go back to him should we need garden and/or landscaping services again..”

Sally, Thorpe St Andrew (2021)

“Our remit was to design and recommend a planting scheme for our recently landscaped back garden in Thorpe St Andrew. We chose Richard because we liked his website and on meeting him felt he had a calm sympatric approach with an understanding of the plants, especially colours, scent and year round interest. We would have no hesitation in recommending Richard.”

Nick and Kate, Brundall (2021)

“After being let down in the past from people who promise the earth and then don’t deliver, I can only say that my experience with Richard has been the complete opposite. honest, fair, very knowledgeable and on time. A breath of fresh air. Thank you and best wishes for your business Richard. Nick & Kate”

Siobhan, Poringland (2021)

“We could not have been more pleased with the service we received. Richard really knows his stuff. He really listened to what we wanted. He supplied all the plants for us and helped plant them. We now can’t wait for Spring to come. We had tried a few people before hand but when reviewed Richards web site we had a feeling he was was what we needed and he absolutely was. When Richard is in the garden working with you, you feel like it’s an old friend working with you in the garden rather than a business man. We can’t recommend Richard more highly.”

Will and Megan, Blofield (2021)

“We have just completed our garden with Richards help from the design stage through to setting out the plants. After several site visits to discuss our design theme we were sent a scale plan with the plant selection. Would recommend to anyone looking to create or add to their garden.”

Ian and Clare, Reedham (2021)

“Richard is experienced and professional.  We used his services to draw up plans for our garden which we were very happy to facilitate.  We highly recommend him”

Simon and Tracy, Winterton (September 2020)

“Richard is experienced and professional.  We used his services to draw up plans for our garden which we were very happy to facilitate.  We highly recommend him”

Janet and Michael, Catfield (July 2020)

“Richard undertook a large project and completely transformed our garden. From the initial meeting and then to prepare the detailed plans and to undertake a lot of hard landscaping and creation of new beds with associated planting Richard was excellent and I would certainly recommend him to anyone who is looking for advice or work to their garden.”

Julie and Michael, Winterton (January 2020)

“We found Richard very friendly and helpful and his plant knowledge and planning was invaluable.  We can’t put any photos yet – as it was mostly all new planting – but will add photos during the summer as everything grows and develops – but very hopeful for a great seaside garden.  Would certainly recommend him”

Vicki Ellen, Norwich (September 2019)

“Richard transformed our small garden in the Golden Triangle, turning a derelict deck into a lawn, patio and raised beds including beautiful planting. He is a true professional and was kind and communicative throughout the process. We couldn’t be happier with the result and have barely left the garden since!”

Stuart and Linda Burgess, Norwich (September 2019)

“Richard was very professional with an intelligent approach. He had a great depth of knowledge and understood exactly what was required for our landscape plan to be accepted and passed by the local Council in a conservation area. The site was not easy with different heights and undulations. We were also very pleased with the design. We had to refer back to Richard several times and he always responded immediately and was extremely helpful.”

David and Helen, North Norfolk (September 2019)

“It’s been a really great experience working with Richard right through from initial discussions of a design brief through to completion of the works. He is a committed, very knowledgeable, and thoroughly conscientious garden designer who really gives attention to detail. He has been especially very accommodating and patient with us as our requirements evolved over the process! We are so pleased with our lovely new garden not just with its appearance but also in relation to the wildlife we are now seeing, particularly butterflies, and so we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.”

David Roper, Hemsby (July 2019)

“We employed Richard last year to provide and implement a design for our front and rear gardens. The gardens aren’t large – and as well as making the most of the space available, one of our requirements was that they should be relatively low maintenance going forward.  From the initial meeting Richard provided outstanding service. He listened carefully to what we needed and made really helpful suggestions as to what would work well with the location.

The 3D designs he provided were very realistic and made our decisions easy; he was also very responsive in making changes etc.  The works themselves were hassle free and very well executed. At one point Richard wasn’t happy with the quality of the paving and contacted me straight away to discuss alternatives (along with a very clear indication of any cost implications).

We’re very happy with the outcome. We now have lovely gardens, with great variety of type and colour and they’re maturing nicely (and as envisaged in the design models!)”

Tsubi, Norwich (June 2019)

“We employed Richards services as a garden designer. We have a challenging, long but narrow garden and we wanted many different things from it. After an initial consultation Richard presented us with drawings and a 3d walkthrough video. We were very happy with the results and after we had completed the hardscaping he was kind enough to have helped us to source the plants. 1 year in from starting the landscaping and we are delighted with the results and will post a picture once we’ve finished the pond and various other bits. Thanks Richard!”

Stuart Cockrill, Belton, Norfolk (June 2019)

“We are very pleased with the work carried out by Richard. Right from the start it was a very pleasurable experience. Richard’s design ideas and the presentation of the proposal was first class and the end result even better. We would highly recommend Richard for any garden design work.”

Jamie Dyson, Hemsby, Norfolk (April 2019)

“Richard did an excellent job on our garden from the design to the execution. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”

Steve and Jane Betts, Norwich (April 2019)

“Excellent service. listened to our ideas, improved on them and supplied the design we were looking for. Will have no hesitation in recommending to family and friends.”

Mat Garman, Horsey, Norfolk (December 2018)

Having decided to employ the services of a garden designer, a Google search highlighted a few in my area, including RW Gardens. A well laid out website encouraged me to arrange a visit from Richard, which turned out to be a pleasant no-pressure chat about garden design, plants, gardening and my preferences.

The enthusiasm showed by Richard during this visit meant that I was more than happy to employ his creative services, and I’m really pleased that I did. Subsequent visits to my garden narrowed down the potential ideas until I was happy that everything I wanted was incorporated, and the 3D ‘walk through’ of the proposed garden was really useful in bringing the 2D plan to life. Although I’ve been a keen gardener for many years, he was able to offer design advice on a level beyond anything I could have come up with, and I now have a clear idea on how to transform my site into a garden that will incorporate all of my ‘wish list’, and more besides.

It’s not often that I’m completely happy to recommend someone to others, but I will happily recommend Richard to anyone seeking a garden designer.”
