“Thank you for all your hard efforts, I have no doubt I have tried your patience on many occasions. But you have always done a great job for me over the last 5 years, and for that I will always be grateful."

Tony Ball Project Manager Northamptonshire Council

“Philip was responsible for the original innovative landscape scheme at Sefton Park. The site called for sensitivity in retaining parts of the historic garden around the listed building to create a structure around new buildings”


“Philip has proved to be very pragmatic and able to work within budgetary constraints set by the service charge”
