Design: Summertime

“Pete Sims’ Summertime is a masterpiece. It features really accomplished planting, a wonderful eclectic mix of native plants and ornamentals. I think this garden is bound to win a gold medal.”

“My favourite garden. The planting is lovely and very naturalistic. The best thing about it though is the atmosphere, its cool soothing, calming, in fact it’s the perfect place to sit and contemplate the rest of the show.”

What our clients say about Pete and his construction team

“You have a very happy customer. The standard of work, the professionalism (as I said to the lads on Tuesday) & overall effort has been outstanding. We will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends & family & if you want to use us as a reference at any time you only have to ask. I believe that there is still planting to do and Jill informs me that we will do this with you in the Spring.”

Ian & Jill Smith

“LGS (Pete Sims) designed and constructed our front garden in 2010. Pete and his team carried out the work on time and to budget and delivered a very high quality result – they have great attention to detail. Our garden is the best in our road by a long way – just as Pete said it would be – and the neighbours still come by to admire it.”

Stuart & Sue Mitchell

“We are delighted to recommend your work to anyone and would state as follows –

The work carried out for us by Landscape Gardening Services (Pete Sims) was first class and we would not hesitate to recommend them. We were delighted with both the design and construction of our new patio, which is constantly admired by all.”

Sheila and Brian Price


“We chose LGS (Pete Sims) 4 years ago to design and build the garden at our newly built home which we designed and built ourselves. Suffice to say that LGS are still assisting; project by project.”

Country Estate Owner in Bucks.

“I met Pete just by chance when I saw him driving into his yard.  Having spent years driving past and knowing that we wanted to have our garden landscaped I popped in to have a chat.  I was impressed by the photos of gardens that he had previously designed I showed him some examples of gardens in magazines of the ‘look’ I wanted to achieve.  I needn’t have bothered.  Pete designed a garden that not only fitted in perfectly with our natural surroundings but also created an area which we could enjoy with our family and friends.  Pete always listened to our ideas and concerns with the utmost respect.  It was a pleasure to have him working here, he has the knowledge, passion and natural talent.”

Mrs B Kapila

Thanks for all your hard work.”
