Bringing structure and form to your garden

Following on from the design process, final plans come with a whole raft of costs, specifications and schedules. Costs are again a quotation rather than an estimate, so that you know exactly what you are investing, in your new garden.

We are a design and build led business, and currently run four teams of professional landscapers, who are handpicked individuals that are all very talented. Once a project is booked into our schedule, we have a pre-start meeting where you get to meet John. John has been building high end gardens all his adult life, and now project manages everything we build, our focus is on detail. We want the build part of the process to be enjoyable, as 86% of our work comes from recommendation, we work hard to achieve the best possible end result.

To back this up, here at Astek we offer a 10 year guarantee on all our built projects, why? Because we want you to recommend us not only 6 months after we have built your garden but, 10 years later. This is how we have worked since 1991, and it’s how we will continue to work.

built a purpose designed seating area for students to have an outdoor classroom.
A wonderful project to be involved with, with tight time restraints, at was a
great success, and is used constantly.

“For a commentary I would say that we wanted a colourful and easily managed garden to replace a tired and worn out one, but did not have a clear idea of how we could achieve it. Two contractors told us they could cut down trees and remove the leaking pond, but only the third(Astek) had good ideas for re-building it and produced a plan and photographic evidence to demonstrate the final effect. The implementation was excellent. The project was efficiently managed, our thoughts were respected, we were always kept informed and the team leader’s skills were high. In the end, we had a garden that complimented the house and was exactly what we did not know we wanted. Terrific job.” – John and Tracey Walker
