Testimonials for Doug Holloway & Company

‘Apart from his skills as a garden designer, Doug has an impressive level of practical knowledge relating to all aspects of hard and soft landscaping, and is a pleasure to have around.

I can recommend him unreservedly.’ R Harding, Wheatley

His team did a fabulous job, consulting us as the project progressed, and delivered on time, they were very attentive to detail. We have enjoyed watching the garden evolve as the season has developed, particularly the return of wildlife drawn to a lovely selection of plants.We strongly recommend him’. K Hanson, Oxford

Letter to Doug – ‘We have been really delighted with the work right from the start. We were really happy with how reactive and enthusiastic you were, and particularly impressed at how well organised the job was. The landscapers lead by Steve clearly work extremely hard (and carefully), so every day’s work was good value for money. It goes without saying that we recommend your company.’   S Perkins, Oxford

‘Doug has completely transformed our small, walled garden We very pleased with the professional work and the innovative ideas such as the wiring system for the climbing plants and (a particular favourite of mine) the woodshed. The work was completed on time and to a very high standard and, Doug has stayed in touch with advice on the care of the plants. All round an excellent job!’ A Kennedy,  Woodstock

‘The quality and finish are excellent and we are very pleased with the result.’  A Olsen, Oxford

‘I am very happy with the design which is stylish but simple. The team worked very hard, were always prompt, and were extremely professional.  Doug also was very accommodating regarding some extra requests on top of the original quote, which I know caused him considerable extra work. The fencing is meticulously done, as is the rest of the garden.  He also built me a lovely bespoke shed in the space I have which is so cute! I am very pleased with my little garden, and very impressed with the commitment from Doug and his team to the garden and to the aftercare.’ J Mead, Oxford

’I’m delighted with my new garden. It’s been transformed, and has become a place that I want to spend time in, and enjoy. It’s like having another room in the house.”L Furnival, Eynsham

‘Doug was very flexible in the way he thought things through and he came up with some innovative ideas – in particular for the pond. I could not have been more pleased with the result and over the next 12mths the garden matured spectacularly’ C Brown, Solihull

‘We employed Doug Holloway to work on our garden after getting many quotes. He obviously cares deeply about his work. We recommend him highly.’  K King, Birmingham
