Modern Garden - Selby Landscapes

Design by Rosie Nottage

"Every contact has been punctual, organised and professional. Sam worked closely with me involving me in decisions as the work progressed. Sam and his team built a very high spec project on time and within agreed budget. The finished result could not be any better. In addition they were extremely considerate to my neighbours keeping noise and mess to a minimum, chatting to them and generally keeping everyone happy throughout the project. I would most certainly recommend Selby Landscapes."

Veggie garden -Selby Landscapes

For this project, we raised a veggie garden. 

This design was drawn up for the client by .

The brief was to create a usable area on a very steeply sloped garden, which could then be used as a vegetable garden.

We constructed a large retaining structure using upright sleepers.

The pathways and steps were finished using self binding gravel 

"Living in Lansdown, Bath is not always easy when it comes to gardening on sloping gardens. Ours was by no means an easy project with so many steps down from the road and narrow access to a very sloping back garden and levels a nightmare.
Sam and his team did a brilliant job creating a bespoke curved sleeping wall raising the levels and creating a flat raised vegetable and fruit beds with steps down to this new area. They created a beautiful curved flower border and pathway in the grass to match the curved bed. I was very impressed with the way they overcame any problems with these levels and kept me up to date with their progress. So now not only do I have a useable garden that is a pleasure to look at it is also a pleasure to work in. Sam and his team created something way beyond my expectations and I am therefore delighted with the outcome. Neighbours and friends have commented on what a transformation has been achieved!"

Retaining wall - Selby Landscapes

October 2014 -

Our clients house backed onto a steep, woodland garden with the bank coming very close to the house, leaving little outside room.

The brief was to excavate into the bank to extend the usable area. Install a new stone staircase, and lay new surfacing.



A substantial retaining wall needed to be installed to hold back the heavy clay bank.


Approximately 6 tonnes of Bath stone came out during the excavation and this was used to face the reinforced wall and staircase risers.

We chose a sandstone paving to complement the Bath stone and also blend in with the natural surroundings. 



Client reference -

"Sam and his team did a wonderful job replacing two sets of dangerous garden steps, digging out a bank of earth and creating a patio and retaining wall. Throughout the job Sam kept us fully informed of progress and came up with good solutions to any problems that arose. We were very impressed with his reuse of materials to build a retaining wall from Bath stone and the finished patio and wall look superb. Sam and his team kept the disruption and mess down to a minimum and even our neighbours commented on what good workers they were.

I would have no hesitation hiring Selby landscapes for future work and can happily recommend them"
