This was our first experience of having a garden designed and landscaped from scratch turning a building site into a beautiful garden. We undertook very productive discussions with Ian which were reflected in a number of alternative designs. The plans took into account our thoughts but were far more creative and included ideas we would just not have considered. A final plan including costings and detailed planting programme was produced, again discussed and agreed. Work commenced on schedule and the necessary ground work preparation was impressive and included brick work and carpentry. The team were a pleasure to have on site and utterly reliable. The whole experience has been a pleasant one and the resulting garden far exceeded our expectations. Well done Ian and the team who I would recommend without hesitation.
When we recently moved into our newly-built house, we asked Ian Cooper to design and install our garden and patio area. From the time the plans were provided, right up to the installation of the finished garden, we were delighted with the knowledgeable and professional service we received. Ian and his team stayed on site from start to finish and were a pleasure to have around. We would thoroughly recommend IFC Landscapes and would certainly have no hesitation in using them again for any garden-related projects.
Beautifying the expanse of cracked concrete that served as a garden for our barn conversion home was always going to be a challenge. Having lived for ten years with raised sleeper beds we decided to bite the bullet. Ian didn't raise an eyebrow-well not at least in front of us- and produced a draft plan for us to consider. The planning process was brilliant; we felt supported in making good choices but never pressurised and Ian was so patient when we wanted to make adjustments.
The project started and finished exactly on schedule. There was the minimum of fuss and mess, despite the significant amount of concrete that had to go, and the team were a pleasure to have on the premises. We watched our vision grow and the reality was just as good as the drawings. The quality of the materials used and the attention to detail in both construction and planting ensured an absolutely top-class outcome.
The finished garden meets all our expectations. It looks fantastic, is easy to manage and suits our lifestyle. We would certainly recommend Ian and his team to anyone thinking of a garden make-over- however unpromising the original site they can make you a garden to be proud of.
"I would not hesitate in recommending Ian Cooper from IFC Landscapes to anyone contemplating completely, or partially redesigning their garden. He and his team have gradually transformed what was a building site into a beautiful garden for us, which has exceeded all our expectations. The work is always delivered on schedule, in a professional and friendly manner and with as little disruption as possible. Ian is always reliable, friendly and approachable, he has great ideas and gives excellent advice. We would have no hesitation using his services again."
