"I asked Eugene to help me with getting planning permission for an oak framed garage with upstairs office space on a piece of rural land next to my cottage. Eugene made the whole process seamless and effortless. His knowledge of how to go about planning combined with his knowledge of design was a fantastic combination.
He initiated a conversation with the planning officer with an outline of what I wanted to do, to get a feel for what they would allow. Following on from those conversations and in with conjunction with finding out what I wanted, he drew up and submitted plans. They were accepted first time.
I really enjoyed working with Eugene. He is a clear communicator and has an insightful understanding of design and planning. He thought of ideas that I wouldn’t have done, due to my limited understanding.
If you are limited on time and expertise of design and planning, then I would not hesitate to recommend Eugene to assist you in the process so you can achieve your desired outcome stress free!"
"Throughout the process, from our initial meeting to the completion of the project, [we] had every confidence that you would give us a garden to be proud of. We now have a garden which we can enjoy, with better access and terracing that makes best use of the sloping site.
You and your team provided a friendly, efficient and professional service which we would highly recommend to others."
"Really impressed with our timber and tiled roof garage which was designed and built by Dewlands. From proposal to build, the service was exceptional and the workmanship very professional. I would highly recommend Eugene and his team to anyone. Thank you so much!"
And following further work to the garden... "Thank you so much for all that you and your team have done. We are so happy with the result!"
"We were very impressed with the time and effort put into the initial visits to discuss what we wanted to achieve and the problems we were encountering. The plans put forward clearly showed these had all been taken on board and we are absolutely delighted with the end result and are very much enjoying our new garden which is now a very usable space. It has been hugely admired and we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Dewlands. The work was carried out efficiently, initially in very adverse conditions, but was completed on time and on budget. We thoroughly enjoyed having the workforce here who were all very friendly, courteous and hard working. We wish them every success in the future."
"We wanted to extend our heartfelt thanks to you for the most amazing transformation of our garden, from virtually every aspect.
We have been truly impressed by your capability and work ethic on this project. From the discussions of what we were after, through the inception and your designs to the final product we have been delighted with your considered and flexible approach, your creativity and drive to deliver a quality, completed and delightful space for our whole family.
I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending you and Dewlands Garden Design to friends and associates."
"Thank you for a doing a super job, within time and budget. I am very happy to pass on your details to anyone wanting a similar job done."
"We were very happy with each of your two proposals. Both were viable for us and quite distinct in meeting our requirements. Your knowledge of design, build practicality and plant suitability have been first rate and supported us to decide on the design we went for.
I found your attitude towards dealing with the one or two setbacks we encountered demonstrated a real sense of accountability and commitment to our project which pleased us no end. I think being able to undertake a design and build like that and deal with the adverse elements and still come in on the budget and timescales you’d proposed are the marks of a true professional."
"Thank you for the lovely job you did on my patio. Anyone who has seen it has praised it greatly. It has made a very useful space out of what was really a wasted area."
"Just wanted to send you another big thank you for being the driving force and consultant architect for our deck getting done! We are 'lolloping' about in the sunshine enjoying our special patch of this pleasant land."
