"We contacted Robert because we were at a loss to know what to do with our front garden of tarmac and grass. We were going to have a go ourselves with the help of a landscaper but now we are very glad that we decided to ask Robert to do a professional job. His inspired design met our brief perfectly, incorporating the practical aspects that we needed and respecting the farmhouse setting in a way that, even as keen gardeners, we could not have done. The garden is beautifully laid out and makes such imaginative use of the space that we find ourselves just gazing at it in amazement! Although only just planted it looks fabulous already. Robert and his team did a great job from start to finish. The planning process was quick and the landscaping well managed with excellent attention to the budget. We were kept informed on a day to day basis and we are very pleased with the quality of the work done. All in all we are very happy to heartily recommend Robert – he has built us a garden that will bring us pleasure every single day and is worth every penny."
Anne Easterbrooke, near Wareham, Dorset
"My wife and I have recently completed a new build farmhouse with outbuildings and commissioned Robert to produce a design for the landscaping. He listened very carefully to our general ideas for the garden, and he has now produced an absolutely stunning plan which, while taking on board our ideas, incorporates his wonderful sense of colour, and textures. We can now see that our beautiful property will soon be embedded in a truly wonderful garden. Robert, it has been a pleasure working with you, we will most certainly recommend you in the future."
Ray and Helle Jones, Woolverton, Bath
“Just to say thanks again for the outstanding plan. We are both thoroughly impressed with the ideas and attention to detail and are excited about it coming together.”
Mr and Mrs Bettley, Templecombe, Somerset
“The design produced far exceeded our expectation and demonstrated a thorough knowledge of plants and what suits the given environment. We wanted drawings to enable us to budget ahead and we have since had them framed, as they have been beautifully produced and hand finished. We have no hesitation to recommend Robert Kennett to other clients.”
C Bowater, Iwerne Minster, Dorset
“The project involved finding a solution to a very difficult sloping site. A very imaginative solution was reached, involving innovative use of pleaching to create a horizontal, and grasses to link the garden with the countryside beyond. It’s the start of its second year, after a very tough winter, and like everyone else I wait with bated breath. But late last year it looked gorgeous.”
Mrs AP, Shaftesbury, Dorset
“I had a whole new garden created by Robert Kennett Design. It was the only thing that made moving house bearable! It was a difficult plot on uphill terrain with no rear access so all work and materials had to go through then house. The design took a week and was done exactly to my brief which was vague – I just gave Robert an idea of the sort of overall effect I would like and he created an idea from scratch. It has flower beds, a terrace, decking, a water feature, and lawn and pergola."
Mrs P Simpson, Shaftesbury, Dorset
“Robert Kennett produced a design for our back garden. It was a well thought out design and made the most of our garden. The work was carried out to a high standard and everyone was polite, tidy and very helpful. We now use and enjoy our garden more than we had before.”
