Get the most out of your garden with Diamond Landscaping
Today’s gardens are no longer just about rectangular lawns surrounded by flower borders. They are an extension of the home, an expression of your lifestyle. And why not! Gardens should be used and enjoyed all year round, adding an extra dimension to your living space – and landscaping is the perfect way to help your garden fulfil its potential.
The most important consideration is how you want to use your garden and what you want to achieve from a landscaping project. Do you plan to regularly entertain guests outside? Do you want to create a vegetable garden in a corner? Do you need a safe play area for your children? Or do you want to turn a boring space into something altogether more visually stimulating?
There are so many ways in which a garden can be enhanced. From decking to ornamental walls, there is any amount of elements that can be introduced to create a more welcoming space. And it doesn’t even have to be a complete overhaul – or cost a fortune!
Part of Diamond Landscaping’s expertise is in understanding how you want to use your garden, sharing ideas and options, and agreeing a plan that will fulfil your vision, suit your personal taste and not exceed your budget. Planning how to landscape your garden is an exciting and inspiring process – we hope that Diamond Landscaping can be part of your plan to transform your garden.

The Diamond Landscaping story
Diamond Landscaping was founded by Steve Preston in 1996. Having originally trained as a graphic designer, Steve’s passion for gardening led him down an alternative creative path to RHS Wisley, where he worked for four years. It was at Wisley that Steve developed his knowledge of plants and the necessary skills for landscaping.
Steve’s original vision for Diamond Landscaping was to simply do small garden jobs in his spare time. Over time the projects got bigger, the business grew and Steve built a strong and reliable team. Since 1996 Diamond Landscaping has worked on over 250 gardens, and today we work for both residential and business clients throughout Surrey and the South East. Much of our work comes through word
of mouth recommendation – for us, that is the greatest compliment any of
our clients can give.
The secret to Diamond Landscaping’s success is teamwork
Diamond Landscaping is led by Steve Preston, who is involved in each and every job. As the owner and founder of Diamond Landscaping Steve is committed to ensuring quality, consistency and good communication throughout the duration of each project.
Working with Steve are Jim Boulton, who has worked for Diamond Landscaping for 13 years, and Darren Beer, who joined the company in 2006. As supervisors, Jim and Darren are responsible for site management and deployment and supervision of staff. They also ensure that clients are regularly updated on progress or alerted to any issues that may arise.
Working with specialists
Diamond Landscaping also works with specialist subcontractors and consultants, all of whom are carefully selected and closely monitored to ensure they meet the company’s expectations – and those of our clients. We have established an extensive network of subcontractors that we can call on according to the scope and requirements of specific projects, including electricians, surfacing specialists, plumbers and tree surgeons.
Interested in sustainable and environmentally friendly gardens?
At Diamond Landscaping there’s nothing we like more than to incorporate environmentally friendly ideas into landscaping projects. We can make suggestions if you’re keen to move towards sustainable gardening, and we’re equally happy to run with your own ideas.
Here are just a few easy ways in which we can help ensure your new garden goes beyond simply looking fantastic:
– Include fresh herbs in the planting scheme. As well as providing a range of scents that contrast with sweet smelling flowers, you’ll have a ready supply of herbs to use in your cooking.
– Dedicate some space to growing organic vegetables we can even get really creative and mix vegetables with flowers and shrubs if you don’t want a vegetable patch. The pleasure of growing and eating your own produce is immense!
– Fruiting trees help to store carbon in the soil and this helps cool the garden during the warm summer months. You also get to enjoy the produce!
– Keeping a garden well watered can often be a problem. We know how to set up efficient watering systems that won’t be wasteful.
– Encourage wildlife into your garden – we all know how important biodiversity is, and creating ideal habitats for bees, butterflies and birds is a really positive way of sustaining nature. Including trees such as buddleia or adding a bird bath are simple things to include in your plans.
– Start using a compost bin – it’s easy to design a screen so that it’s hidden from view. Composting is the natural way to dispose of waste and, over time, you’ll end up with nutrient-rich compost that will improve the quality of the soil in your garden.
Choosing your garden designer or landscape gardening company
There are lots of landscape gardeners out there. There are lots of very good companies out there, companies whose work we’d be proud to have in our portfolio. There are also companies out there that are more concerned about profit than aesthetics and practicalities.
Making improvements to your garden, no matter how extensive they may be, can involve a tidy sum of money, so it’s important that you have absolute confidence in the company you select to do the work.
For every garden designer or landscape gardener that you consider make sure you assess their suitability against this checklist:
Will you feel comfortable working with them?
Landscaping projects can take weeks to complete and you may be working closely with them, so do you think you have a good rapport?
Do they offer honest advice and guidance?
It’s your garden but a decent company will soon tell you if any of your ideas are not going to work or are beyond your budget. You are paying for their expertise and knowledge, so they should use it to ensure a solution that is both practical and meets – or even exceeds – your expectations.
Have they completed similar projects in the past?
If your plans involve hard landscaping and you meet with someone whose portfolio of work features only soft landscaping do not trust their assurances that they can do the work. There is someone else out there who can show absolute evidence of their skills.
Do you like the gardens they’ve designed?
Look through their portfolio. If you feel inspired by what you see, this could be the company for you. If there is nothing of interest, you need to move on.
Can they produce references?
Satisfied customers are usually very happy to provide letters of recommendation. Most companies will operate in a specific area so it’s highly likely that there will be a garden not far away that you may also be able to visit to see the quality of work at firsthand.
Are the costs fair?
Naturally, you’ll need to get several quotes in order to compare costs. Make sure that all aspects of the project are itemised and check that you’ve been given a quotation not an estimate. Estimates provide too many opportunities for extra costs to creep in. And never ever accept a verbal quote – insist that everything is put in writing.
Are they asking for cash payments?
Beware of this, particularly if you are being asked to make payments in advance of phased works.
