Hello, I am Phil, the lead landscaper and welcome to our website.
My co-workers and I are an enthusiastic well experienced team with skills and expertise in many areas of landscape design and construction, and offer creativity and professionalism, deployed in a way that makes it easy to develop your dreams into a reality. We have worked in prestigious properties such as The Rectory in Landbeach, The Warren in Letchworth Garden City, Gothic House in Cottenham, and seem to of built up a reputation for local staff of the University. We specialise in domestic projects which require the most attention to detail.
What you can expect to receive by engaging services with us:
I have a particular passion for attention to detail, and enjoy working with new materials and especially enjoy always seeing the finished project and reaction of my customers (I even had a customer cry and hug me when their pond was completed and they arrived home from work).
We have worked now in the Cambridge city area professionally for over 4 years and have a long list of happy clients. I have been offering gardening services since I was 11 in the villages where I grew up, and worked with a reputable local builder as a teenager. I really get a thrill from designing beautiful spaces.
Gardens are a special place and can be a space for family, reflection, peace, community and getting in touch with your body and mind through physical activity. A special place where relationships form with ourselves, people, nature and the fascinating universe - becoming more in balance from the ever revolving world of our modern lifestyles.
Please see our portfolio for examples of our work.
I look forward to meeting with you to understand your requirements and get your project underway; whether it is a traditional wall or decking, new paving space, felling a tree, or a complete overhaul we will do everything we can to exceed your expectations.
You're in good hands with The Cambridge Landscaper.
Phillip Ellis and Team
Project elements: Full landscape; cobble path, steps, bed walling, turf, planting scheme, patio restoration.
Materials: Raj mixed color tumbled cobble, grey resin bound joint material,
Location: Cambridge City
\the client required a style to matcha reen roof and natural cladding out building that was recently finished, so the specification had to fit the tone of the building.
This meant natural curves, soft tumbled cobbles, and a maintenance free planting scheme as the client was a busy self employed consultant.
The site required excavation in a tight space, so logistics in Cambridge city was an issue on this site but was overcome with a mini digger and use of tipper lorries to minimize impact to neighbors parking and traffic.
We worked closely with the client from the design stage to build specifically meaning work shopping the lines of the path and steps with paint and revising until happy.
The existing patio was structurally sound but an cement joint material was used on original installation which breaks after a few years,
so we used a new modern resin material for joints along with restoring with a pressure washer to ensure a complete finish to match the cobbles. Decorative gravel over membrane lines next to the fencing were included to make lawn maintenance easy.
The photos speak for themselves on the finished project.
Grey sandstone and oak sleeper steps to raised lawn, even threw in a small planter and shed build.
Phil has been very professional from the moment we met until the very end of the project. We had our garden redone and Phil has been very helpful since the start by getting involved with ideas about the design and different materials we could use to suit our needs. When the work started he was communicative and kept checking if we were happy with the progress. His craftsmanship was really good and speedy. We had a few things that needed attention after the project and Phil always made himself available to come and rectify everything. We wish him a successful future and would highly suggest him to anyone in need of an honest, friendly, polite and skilled landscaper.
Did an excellent job clearing our garden waste, very reasonable prices too!
Phil and Nigh did an excellent job of landscaping our small garden, they replied promptly. Work began quickly after we discussed our plans with him, it was efficient and caused minimal disruption, and at a good price. Many thanks
Phil called round to discuss our requirements for block paving and presented his services well. His quote was very reasonable. The work started on time and was completed within a week. He also erected some post and chain fencing for us. Phil's workmanship has drawn favourable comments from neighbours and friends when visiting. We wish Phil every success for the future.
Phil came round promptly after my initial call to discuss my requirements In a few day he started the job, kept me informed as it progressed and finished on time transforming my jungle into a very pleasant garden. Good humoured, industrious and dedicated to doing a first class job I would definitely recoment his company.
