Ground works and structural foundations - Great Bromley

I’ve appointed Cottage Landscapes on two separate projects. The first was a maintenance contract involving initial ground clearance, marrying in and improving an existing landscape area and garden against the street. The second consisted of setting out, excavation and construction of a raft foundation for a significant

Garden structure.


In both cases this company was both courteous  and professional throughout the whole process. From initial contact and discussions regarding the project design and practical solutions to construction issues all the way through to implementation and ongoing management the service was faultless.  I would definitely recommend this company


Potting Shed Base – Weeley, Clacton-on-Sea

We are very happy with Paul and Owen's work. He gave us some good advice and the end result reflected his input. A very conscientious and tidy worker. Will definitely have him on our list for any future landscape gardening jobs.

Thank you to you both for a great job!

Exploratory investigation work into a leak – Dedham

“Paul is a knowledgeable builder who gives good advice. He completed my job to a fantastic standard and at a sensible price. I have not hesitated to ask him back for other jobs and would highly recommend.”


Garden Balcony Replacement - Ipswich

“The job started as demolition and replacement of an existing wooden balcony. Paul visited to quote and after discussing many types of new structure the potential option to repair the existing rotten woodwork was mooted. As a large percentage of the existing was sound, this rapidly transpired to be the most cost-effective, and Paul gave his quote. He kept in contact well throughout the procedures, arrived at the agreed time having dropped off the 12 lengths of timber a week previously for me to paint by agreement. Most of the work was carried out from below, including use of a jack to restore correct alignment. The end result is now a structure probably stronger than the original 37 year-old balcony which will now last indefinitely. Paul and Ian were very careful to ensure maximum rot protection on all new timbers. The net result is a lasting fully functional balcony at considerably less cost than the original plan. They left the site very clean and tidy. Many thanks for a splendid job!”


Decking around a pond - Colchester

“Not the cheapest quotation however you get what you pay for! Paul is a professional reliable hard-working chap who knows exactly what he is doing. Our decking looks fantastic and we have hired Paul for Garden maintenance on a regular basis.”
