A Stunning Transformation
Customer Service
In just 12 weeks, in the worst of winter weather, our 'plot' was transformed from a drab, uninspiring space to a beautiful garden with curves, colour, lighting, pots,and planting. This was all made possible by the team at Slate Grey. They were always punctual, completely reliable, worked with a passion, with was obvious in their dedication to detail and craftsmanship. We cannot rate them highly enough. They have done a fantastic job. We look out at our garden every day and are amazed at the transformation.
Complete Garden Overhaul
Customer Service
Our garden was impractical, wet, boggy and unuseable. Slate Grey Design came along and planned a new up to date useable and family friendly garden. They understood our needs and had the vision to create what we required. Every aspect was considered and professionalism was apparent throughout - from design stage to completion. Workmen were always punctual, polite and the garden was treated as part of our home, not a building site and was always left clear and tidy at the end of the day. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Slate Grey Design as the quality of the work was to a very high standard.

Soft landscaping job
Customer Service
I was very happy with the work done, which was conducted in an efficient and professional way. The work was more complicated than expected due to the unexpected condition of the ground and subsoil but was dealt with without fuss. All in all a very professional job conducted in a polite and courteous manner. I would highly recommend.
