We provide a complete landscape gardening service, creating beautiful and functional gardens for many different clients.
Since 1994 Tim Alexander has been building gardens of all shapes and sizes, from small, intimate, urban courtyards to large, child friendly, family gardens. Whether you want a modern or traditional garden, a space for entertaining, or a haven for plants, we have the skills and experience to build the garden you want.
We usually work from our own designs but also offer a “build only” service, building gardens for other designers or for clients who already have their own designs.
We pride ourselves on the meticulous and creative approach that we take to all that we do and feel that the results and client testimonials speak for themselves.
All our work is completed to a fixed price quotation. Please see our portfolio pages for examples of our work.
Not only do we carry out large landscaping projects but we also undertake smaller one off work. For more information please see our services page.
All gardens need careful regular work to enable them to grow and flourish as intended. We provide a flexible and comprehensive garden maintenance service tailored to suit you and your garden, whether you want a visit once a week or once a year.
From regular mowing to annual pruning our qualified and experienced gardeners will look after your garden and keep it in the best possible condition throughout the year. We can provide a “one-off” gardening service for all kinds of work, from weeding beds and pruning overgrown shrubs and climbers, to clearing and restoring neglected gardens as well as more seasonal work such as soil improvement, lawn treatment, seeding and bulb planting.
High Pressure Washer Cleaning
We also have a high pressure washer cleaning service to renovate all types of hard surfacing, including brick, paving slabs, concrete and decking. This can also be an effective way to clean old garden furniture before re-oiling.
We supply and fully install artificial grass lawns. Artificial grass is green all year, weather proof, free draining and provides a natural looking surface that requires very little maintenance. There are a variety of grass types available which are suitable for a variety of applications. It could be for a children’s play area, pet run, cover for an old deck or patio or just as an attractive lawn.
We provide a complete and expert block paved driveway installation service. We have a wide range of products and designs and can help you choose the right driveway to suit your style and home. We only use top quality products and our driveways are fully compliant to building regulations.
We provide a complete decking supply and installation service. Todays decking has moved on from the slippery, high maintenance, soft wood installations of old. We offer a complete range of composite and hardwood decking that will suit a variety of styles and budgets. Composite decking is the perfect option for the British climate as it is maintenance free, durable and resistant to water and sun damage. It is environmentally friendly and is available in a variety of finishes.
Garden patios can create an inviting area to socialise even when you have a small garden. A patio can provide a place to sit, eat or read. It makes a perfect usable surface when it’s too soggy underfoot. Constructing the right sized patio can be crucial in creating a fantastic, ambient space. We build some of the best garden patios around and only use proven top quality products. Our patios are fully compliant to building regulations and we can build to your requirements or provide a design surface.
Transform your garden into a tranquil haven with a pond or water feature. Our beautifully crafted water features are individually designed to add a unique focal point to any garden. Whether you’re thinking of a simple pond or a more ornate feature, cascades and bubble pools can be designed to reflect the theme and setting of your garden. When introducing a pond we can help you create a balanced, eco-system. Selecting the right foliage will keep your pond looking attractive all year round, or we can advise on the best way to keep a pond that is for fish only. Traditional or contemporary, Japonica has a first class reputation for stylish water features.
We offer a complete professional outdoor lighting service from concept to completion. Our service can be applied to all gardens from a small roof garden to large country estates. From pathway lights, driveway lights, patio lights and wall lights, the choice of garden lighting is endless. For this reason when it comes to selecting lighting for your outdoor space it is sometimes difficult to know where to start. That’s why we can help you choose the right design lighting for your garden. All installations are carried out by a part p qualified electrician for your peace of mind.
Tree stump grinding provides the most efficient form of tree stump removal. With minimum disturbance we can grind the tree stump down to approximately 8 inches below the surface which is an adequate depth for laying a lawn or concreting over. There are other ways to get rid of your tree stump, you could try digging them out, but this could be extremely hard work and take a long time. There are solutions on the market which claim to aid decomposition but few make the process any quicker than the natural decay process which could take years.
Whether it’s a simple irrigation system to water a few pots or baskets, a watering system for a balcony or courtyard or a large sprinkler system for lawns and borders, Japonica can advise you on the most efficient and convenient way to ensure your garden gets just the right amount of water. Expert installation conserves water as does our low cost maintenance service which also ensures longevity of the watering system. Garden irrigation is one of the best investments you can make for your home. An easy cost effective way to a stunning garden whether you’re at home or on holiday, it adds value to your home, whilst saving you time, money and water and it’s a home improvement that will help you achieve and maintain a spectacular outside space.
