The E.scape team took my typical Victorian house garden, long and narrow and full of weeds, and turned it into a tropical oasis, with hidden views, secret paths, palm trees, and a wall to wall pond for Koi carp. It was an imaginative design skillfully realized, and carried out on schedule and within budget. The garden has since been featured on TV in Gardeners World, the Financial Times Weekend and several other books and magazines. I was very impressed with their work ethic and attention to detail and would highly recommend their services.
I have employed E.scape to design and build 2 of my gardens and many display gardens at my nursery, The Palm Centre, here in Richmond. The first of the gardens was at my house in central London which shortly after completion was featured on BBC Gardeners World and other TV programs, and has subsequently appeared in many books, magazine articles over the next 10 years. They also designed my garden in Portugal.
I have known E.scape since about 1990 and have been aware of some of their many different projects in different parts of the UK and abroad. I have found their design drawings to be of the highest standard and their method of bringing designs off paper and into construction very easy to work with. They have worked in the tropics as well as colder countries such as Belgium and Switzerland and many different climates from cold inland sites to the south-facing cliffs of the Isle of Portland facing directly into the English Channel.
I am familiar with E.scapes wide-ranging plant knowledge and expertise in horticultural matters and would endorse their planting recommendations for almost any situation. I am aware that their knowledge is widely respected amongst specialist nurseries in the UK and that their work is sought after by garden photographers and journalists, with their plant knowledge regularly quoted.
