Very professional right from the start. The most detailed quote that I received, excellent advice on our first meeting, and good communication right through the project. Price was not the most expensive, nor the cheapest, but for the quality of work we got, well worth it. Brian went out of his way to find us a paver that worked for our budget as we were looking for grey and it is hard to find. The guys were a pleasure to have on site, and they did a very good quality paving job. They also built a fence for us and it looks just like we wanted and I know will last the way they built it. Our patio and paths looks fantastic, and we are very happy with the job and the company. We would have them back to do other work for sure.

I found the team that did the job for me in the communal back garden was excellent, they were hard working, efficient and tidy, they also consulted me on many aspects of the job to ensure that it was done to the standards that not only i needed but they could supply, and indeed they did, they were also a very friendly team and i had some good banter with them, but all in all they left me with much happiness at the end and i am well chuffed with my wee haven of tranquillity.

Very satisfied with the quotation which was competitive and comprehensive. The work was carried out to the schedule proposed and agreed. The attention to detail in carrying out the work was excellent and we were consulted regularly on the progress of the job. The site was left tidy after completion of the work.
I have no hesitation in recommending Garden Design Builders Ltd

I am entirely thrilled with the work of Brian McLean and Garden Design Builders. They arrived when they said they would, discussed the details with me, did a grand job, made sure all was as I wanted, and tidied when they were done. The job entailed work they had not anticipated, which they went ahead and did anyway! I will have them back in a heartbeat when next I need work done. A bit expensive, but you expect to pay for quality, lasting workmanship. Can't praise them enough. Hire these dudes.

Excellent work completed on time when advised. I found Brian & Richard very knowledgable and  professional and have since requested more work from them. Thank you.


We would like to commend Richard Thayne and Garden Design Builders. They recently undertook a large driveway, wall and garden project for us and we were very pleased with the work done.

They were very profesional, hard working, efficient and completed the project on time.

We would certainly recommend Garden Design Builders to others and have done so already.

Your faithfully,

Dr Mary Murray & Profesor Scott Murray


The company were engaged by me to lay a new drive at my home. My wife and I were extremely pleased with the way the company approached the work and the finished drive exceeded our expectations.

Mr Thayne and his team were polite and professional in all aspects of their work and presented themselves in a skilled and proficient manner. I would have no hesitation in recommending Garden Design Builders for the quality and value their work represents.

We initially selected Garden Design Builders to block pave our driveway. Their price was competitive, the service from start to finish was excellent and the final product was stunning. We were so happy with the quality of the work that 5 months later we had asked them back to landscape our garden and add step features and retaining walls. Our initial untidy and unwelcoming garden was transformed. All works that they have done are of the highest standard. Thank you very much for everything and if we have any work in future yours will be the only number we call.

My patio was beginning to look tired so I contacted Garden Design Builders to advise me on the possibilities of laying a new patio. They gave me a very reasonable quote and did a wonderful job.  I was highly satisfied and felt comfortable throughout the time they were on my property. Thank you so much, and I will call on you again should I need more improvements.

Mrs Thompson.


This is the second time we’ve used your company for our home improvements and once again we were most impressed. High quality work, good value for money and straightforward professional service.

Mike & Beverely Kirby


Please pass on my thanks to your team for their hard work on my recent job. Having worked in the building trade for many years I realise I can be a hard customer to please yet I cannot fault the work by Garden Design Builders team or their attitude. Always on time, always professional and happy to help as well as hardworking and tidy – a great team of workers. The new drive and landscaping is excellent, a first class job.

Mr M Gooding.
