Why the Real Garden Company?

Because we are real gardeners, not lawn mowing contractors who happen to have a pruning saw.

We are experienced, qualified and passionate about gardening, landscaping and garden design.

We offer a complete service from design and installation, to maintenance and consulting.

We have over 55 years experience between 2 of us, we are qualified gardeners, and also have formal qualifications in arboriculture.

This means we can tackle most problems in any garden situation without having to call on other specialists.

No job is too big or too small, and we believe our experience and knowledge can make a real difference in your garden.

We try to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible, because we believe everyone can and should make a difference.

We do this by using machinery as little as necessary, and by using chemicals only when absolutely necessary. Every little bit helps, and we think looking after our planet is a great idea!

Had the pleasure of meeting Chris and his crew a few months back. They completed and provided excellent workmanship on the maintenance required around my home. Would one hundred per cent recommend them for any work you may require if you can book them. There excellent work ethics and reputation proceed them, they are hard to get a booking......well done guys and gal.

Chris Looij: Thank you for your feedback, it was a pleasure to help you out with your garden!
We had a tree felled but it was left in huge chunks. Chris came to the rescue and had the whole lot chopped up into small pieces in a couple of mornings which we could then sell as firewood and even helped clean up the mess! Not only that, he gave us really good advice about our other trees and the neighbours used him to prune a few problem trees without destroying our privacy. Will definitely get you back to help us design our landscaping project. Chris really is a real gardener!

Chris Looij: Thanks Mike, it was a pleasure to help you out, and I'm looking forward to the landscaping project, it's going to be great to to develop your garden! Regards, Chris.
Very pleased with Chris's professional service, he was able to respond to an urgent request at an awkward time of year ( 2 days before Christmas!) and did a fantastic job over the following 2 weeks when everybody else was unavailable. I have no hesitation in recommending Chris and The Real Garden Company, thanks again Chris!

Chris Looij: Thanks for your review Steve, very glad we were able to help out at short notice! Regards, Chris.
Absolutely stoked with Chris and his services, we have a large rambling kind of garden, and he is the only one who makes a real impact (and believe me, we've tried a few!) Give him a rough brief and let him take over - there's your key to happiness!
