Mrs A Hines


Many thanks to Matt and his team for transforming our back garden. It was an absolute pleasure to have them to work on our garden - polite, cheerful, extremely helpful, meticulous in their work and they always left the site clean and tidy.

Matt - superb fence and gate making and a dab hand with artificial turf so much so that I think it’s growing!
Chris - brilliant porcelain paver layer, wonderful wall construction (with curves) and rendering.
Rick - great camellia and acer planter - both look lovely - as well as a good back-up to Matt and Chris.
Not forgetting Ed and Tom, who we met briefly.
Rebecca, also, working in the background on the accounts.
The team did all this and so much more.

We met Matt and very much liked his ideas to the extent that we decided there was no need to look any further for inspiration. Further visits were made to the site and a starting date agreed. Great communication both in person and by email before, during and after the project had finished.

There was a slight problem which we noticed afterwards. Matt and one of his team returned very promptly, assessed the problem and will be back in the next week to rectify it.

So impressed have we been that we are now going to improve our front garden.

Ours was a six week project; that was started in atrocious weather and consequently ran a few days over due to the weather preventing the completion of the paver laying as well as a few extras that were added along the way.

A brilliant experience from start to finish. I’m lost for superlatives to describe the workmanship!

Cannot wait for the front garden to start.

Cannot recommend Matt and his team highly enough.

Grandchildren love the artificial turf and the younger one really enjoys scootering on the pavers!

Ms J Salmon

We have been sitting in the garden today enjoying the beautiful weather and the grandchildren played in it after school.   A few friends have also  popped round and they all think the garden looks amazing.

I am very happy with everything and the difference it has made is wonderful.

I have been looking back over the photos I took during the work and I am really pleased with how the space has been transformed.

Mr & Mrs Matthews

Two brilliant fencing jobs done in Wellswood...prompt, efficient and excellent work, and leaving the place clean and tidy.  The second job was an urgent one to keep our puppy safe in the front garden, and Matt fitted us in between his busy schedule, which was so appreciated.

Mrs Gardner

From my initial doodling and chats with Matt on my initial enquiry plus a subsequent meet up before work commenced, have resulted in a patio, with stepping stones leading to another paved area that I am thrilled with.  At each step of the way, Matt was always keen to keep me advised as to the progress, and to discuss things that were maybe not so clear, so that I could decide how to proceed.  The weather was not great whilst this work was carried out, but each day things were tidied and secured before Matt left.  Thank you for a job well done, with minimal disruption.  I am very much looking forward to some better weather so that I can start entertaining in, and enjoying my new garden, and will not hesitate to recommend you to others.

 Mr & Mrs Davies
We would like to thank Matt for the complete transformation of our rear garden, he has turned it from what can only be described as a building site into a truly impressive unique space.
We now have areas we can use that did not exist before and the attention to what we requested has been delivered in every detail and to the highest possible standard.
Once again many thanks.

Mr & Mrs L Harwood

We are very pleased with the way Matt has transformed our garden, he clearly enjoys his work and this comes across in his attention to detail and his consideration for his clients.

Mr & Mrs G Duffy

Matt has just finished our 7th or 8th 'project'. It goes without saying with garden landscaping that there is a lot of very hard work involved, but Matt has always embraced our plans with enthusiasm - no matter how 'off-the-wall' - and then carried them out conscientiously and accurately to make sure our ideas come to life. Can't recommend him highly enough.

Mr & Mrs Vaughan-Davies

'We are immensely pleased with the work Matt completed at our home. He has transformed an awkwardly shaped storage area into a decked patio that we can use. From the outset, Matt’s vision and professionalism impressed on us he would be able to create something special. He has truly delivered in the final result.  Matt is a perfectionist and a true artisan and we would recommend his business whole heartedly.

Mr & Mrs Moore, Paignton

'Rebecca and all of the guys on the team were, quite simply, fantastic.
From our first enquiry, to planning and finally completion of the works we were kept up to date with progress and their flexibility allowed certain aspects of the project to be changed at short notice with little or no impact on the timeline, and only a small adjustment to the overall cost.

The space we were faced with when we first moved in has been transformed from an overgrown, unloved, uncompromising dark 'space' to a fresh, minimalist, open and modern garden which allows us to make the best use of all aspects of the garden and the surrounding view. We would have no hesitation in recommending the whole team.'

Wall, Featheredge Fence and Stone Chipping Installation

“The top of our garden was an ugly mess that we had looked at for so long that we had stopped realising just how hideous it was! The first time that Matt looked at it he could see the potential, not only to improve it, but to make sure it was in keeping with the rest of the garden. The work was started promptly, and was completed pretty much as swiftly as some pretty unpleasant weather has allowed, and the difference to the garden is huge. I would like to say a huge thanks to Matt for his work, and to Rebecca for the assistance along the way, and would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone"

Garden Makeover

"We are delighted with the finished result.  As you can see, the old garden was very labour intensive with 3 levels of lawn and garden, each level being held by large rockery stones, which, with the 3 wet winters we have had, were in danger of slipping.  When the back fence went at Christmas, we decided to go ahead and have it all made safer and easier to manage, as we are getting older and wanted a safer, more accessible garden.  We now have an easy to manage, lovely looking garden,  with better steps, and hand rails for more safety, and everyone who has seen it is amazed at how much bigger each level looks.  We would recommend  Matt and his team to anyone, and also Mike who did such an excellent job on the decking and fencing, and John who did all the paving.

With grateful thanks from Pam and Tony Eastley"

We never formally said ‘Thank You’ for the work that You, Matt & the lads did.  It was a great job and so much better than any ideas we had – Matt’s a real professional.

So – thank you!  I’ve attached a little image you might like to use your website.

Matt's vision & attention to detail has given us a garden to enjoy & develop for years to come. The steps especially are a work of art :-) They blend in so well with the surrounding area - they are worthy of a National Trust Garden!!  Family & friends are all very impressed too"

Garden Landscape Improvements

"From the moment Matt Walker visited our property to estimate the cost of our projects, we knew he would be our preferred choice of contractor. His attention to detail and suggested improvements to our plans were most welcome, and they demonstrated a thorough knowledge of his craft, plus a genuine grasp of effective client relations. Suffice it to say Matt and his team have transformed our once shabby gardens, front and rear, into areas that not only look good, but they feel good too. We’re absolutely delighted, and we highly recommend Matt Walker Landscapes without hesitation, to anyone who wants their job done properly and professionally".

The service we received was second to none, Matt and Aaron were efficient, friendly and very professional.  I felt at ease leaving them to work on the garden knowing I would return to a tidy clean house as no access unless via the kitchen.  The work carried out is absolutely fantastic and we are so pleased with it.  I would definately recommend your services to anyone and wish you all the success for the future as you have a fantastic business.

Mrs A McCluskey, Paignton

Decking/Fencing Work

 "I can't recommend them highly enough – nothing is ever any trouble, & their professionalism and customer service is second to none. Since Matt & Aaron cleared the borders & created a very attractive cottage garden for me, Rebecca came up with some fantastic ideas for making the best of my patio space & storage area. I now have a very streamlined decking area which has become an 'extension' to my ground floor room opening from the back door into a further seating space. I know how challenging it was to do the decking in such a tight & irregular space, but Matt persevered in all weathers & the transformation is almost unrecognisable. Together with the fitted lighting, the whole area is illuminated at night – it really is amazing what can be created from such a small space that was cluttered & unattractive. In the past couple of weeks, Matt & Aaron have gone on to build fencing on either side of my garden with bespoke trellis & also made improvements to my bird feeding area. It looks fantastic & has become a real haven for me - & the birds are visiting more & more each day! Matt will continue to provide regular maintenance for me, including keeping the decking oiled & in good order. I trust him & the team implicitly & know that I can rely on them for good ideas, hard work, strong work ethic, & value for money.”
