Our Philosophy

To create outdoor spaces that are functional, beautiful and on trend, which also reflect and take into consideration the surrounding landscape and vernacular.

We create spaces which enhance well-being and life in general, using materials and plants appropriate to their surroundings and environment. Through this ethos we weave in biodiversity ensuring it is protected and enhanced within schemes. This is something we are passionate about and something which we like to educate people about.

We aim to produce and develop spaces that are unique, aesthetically pleasing and respond to the clients’ needs and wants.

We are happy to take on projects of all sizes and scope and are available to call for any advice or queries relating to landscape and gardens.

Our Sustainable and Ecological Responsibility

Kew Green aim to carry out sustainable practices when completing any task. We believe we have a responsibility to carry out sustainable and ecological practices to ensure our environment is protected and enhanced.

We achieve this aim by meeting the following:

  • Ethically sourcing materials
  • Using local materials when possible
  • Incorporating soft landscaping to enhance biodiversity
  • Ensuring planting is appropriate to its micro-climate and conditions
  • Recycling and use of compostable materials
  • Sustainable drainage and reduction of water run of solutions
  • Minimising landfill waste
  • Reusing materials on site where possible, such as, old slabs for aggregates and sub-bases.
  • Thanks Pete. It’s been a pleasure working with you and Dan. We’re really pleased with the end results even though there were times when I thought the weather was going to beat you! It’s always good to find someone you can trust to do a good job for a fair price.

  • Thank you for the landscaping of my back garden.  My expectations were far exceeded.  I cannot praise your professional approach highly enough.  Right throughout the project, from your initial survey of my garden to the final successful outcome you always demonstrated your desire to produce the best possible outcome for me.  I'am now going to get a great deal of pleasure from my new garden.  I would not hesitate in appointing you again or recommending you to other clients.

  • Thank you so much for the beautiful garden you landscaped.  The hand cut stone walkway and terrace was finished to a fantastic standard.  All the plants and thousands of bulbs were planted precisely! An incredible job all round!

  • My wife and I would like to express our thanks to both you and Daniel for the work carried out and the efficiency and courtesy shown both before and during the work.  Please be assured that we would have no hesitation in engaging your company again and recommending you friends and neighbours.
