'Working with Sean and his team was seamless. He came up with great suggestions for what our garden required. He and his team arrived on time, worked quietly and left everything spotless. Everything they touched is growing beautifully - quality work at a very affordable price - thank you, a pleasure doing business with Green Space design and landscaping.' - Elspeth, August 2016
'Dealing with Sean was an absolute pleasure. He was prompt and efficient and extremely helpful in making changes to the original concept. I would certainly use him again and have no hesitation in recommending him.' - Vincent, May 2016
'When we moved to Claremont in 2015 our garden showed that while there had been planning in years long gone it had suffered from neglect in recent years. While building a deck in the garden where the garden had turned to ‘jungle’ we caused further devastation. Then Sean came in. Very quickly he went far beyond merely restoring the damage done. With his keen design eye and his personal physical hard labour, he has now taken our garden into a whole new era. We have interesting new plants growing vigorously in carefully selected spots, he took plants that had been part of the ‘jungle’ and turned them into potted feature plants around the paved pool area and he transformed a walkway of stepping stones with weeds into one with tiny gravel. We would gladly recommend him to anyone.' - Clare and Rory, December 2015
'Thank you so much to Sean Newbury and his team at Green Space who gave our garden a mini facelift recently. It was so refreshing to work with a company who delivered an excellent and professional service on time and with such care. The Green Space team worked in our garden over two days and we hardly noticed they were there. Their work was neat and tidy , with an exceptional outcome . I would highly recommend Green Space to anyone looking at revamping or creating a little piece of paradise at home , for service, professionalism and creativity they are the best.' - Cheryl, April 2016
'Thank you so much Green Space design & landscaping for doing such a wonderful job on our garden. We always knew it needed work, but having very little knowledge on gardening or green fingers, we needed someone to come and just make it better - plant things that suited the area and soil, and make it look more inviting and enjoyable to sit outside. We were blown away by what a good job Sean Newbery and his team did and in such a short amount of time! They repaved areas, installed a new irrigation system and transformed the space. We have spent so much more time enjoying our green space and even better is that it's manageable to maintain now :)'' - Vanessa, March 2016
'We used Green Space design & landscaping to install a new section of our garden, and for planting to improve another section of the garden.
The process was smooth from the start. I had a couple of consultations with Sean to discuss design and types of plants.
We were on a budget and Sean was great in working out and making adjustments so that we could stay in budget and keep to our goal of planting more water wise plants. When Sean and his wonderful team arrived to do the job everything went smoothly, I was kept informed the whole way through. We had a couple of unforeseen extras like hiring of a chipper as they hit some concrete when they were excavating, but I was always kept up to date with this. Sean also installed a new irrigation system for the garden, and was always happy to answer any queries and take any suggestions on board. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Green Space design & landscaping.' - Sheena, April 2016
'We were looking to sell our house, but we'd neglected the garden for a long while and it needed a serious make-over. Sean and the Green Space team carefully designed a new low-maintenance garden for us. After a lot of hard-work by Green Space, we had a fantastic new garden, which definitely contributed to the sale of our house.' - Graham, November 2015
'I have had the pleasure of Sean tidying up and replanting my garden and lawn after 2 Rottweiler pups I was looking caused mayhem. He also pruned plants and trimmed trees in a sensitive way where one could see light without huge gaps being visible. Sean's approach was to listen carefully to the brief and the problems and then make creative yet practical suggestions on what was required.
He works mostly on his own quickly and efficiently and operates his business in a professional way. I highly recommend his work and will most certainly be using his service in the future.' - Maria, January 2016
'This is a commendation of the work of Sean of Green space Design&Landscaping, who has very satisfactorily effected a redesign and replanting of the garden of our cottage at Silvermine into which we recently moved.
The garden was in a state of neglect and needed considerable clearing up and an extensive remake, involving the planting of water-wise plants, consisting almost entirely of fynbos, fencing, paving and the installation of an automatic watering system. The selection of the plants was left almost entirely to Sean, who made very intelligent and experienced choices of shrubs and trees chosen for their suitability, variety, height , shade and wind resistance. The planting by Sean and his team was expertly done with generous composting and a thick overburden of mulch.
The garden in its early stages has excited much favourable comment by passers-by. We are delighted with what Greenpeace Design has accomplished and have every expectation that it will develop into a very beautiful garden – a pleasure to the eye and the mind.
We were very impressed with Sean’s practical skill, his responsible work ethic and his creative ideas and were entirely satisfied with his service.' - Jen, April 2016
'Sean helped us with our garden after a major house renovation. Sean put in an irrigation system for us, and added landscaping and paving. He has advised us on plants which are well suited to our house and lifestyle, and which fit with some of the established trees and bushes which remained in our garden. Sean has created just what we wanted: a simple, low-maintenance garden which is a cheerful and happy place for our kids to play.' - Chris, February 2016
'After discussing with Sean what I was trying to achieve, I was very pleased with his attention to detail on the quote, and that he was able to accommodate our budget. In addition to this, he had some great ideas which I was happy to go with. It was also good to have him on-site on the day, assisting with the job, so that nothing was lost in translation. I will definitely be using the services of Green Space Design and Landscaping in the future.' - Lauren, January 2016
