"I really enjoyed working with Taylor Design and wholeheartedly recommend them. David worked very effectively with me to develop a creative design for my garden and delivered what he promised on time and within budget. David consulted with me and listened to what my goals were, but the best part was David communicating his ideas, his ideas were amazing. His design delivered incredible impact.

I have had numerous compliments from my neighbours and friends stating how great the landscaping looks. My garden is now something that I am very proud of, I definitely recommend David Taylor Landscape Architecture, and would like to especially thank David for turning my garden into a space that looks absolutely stunning, but is low maintenance"...

"David was recommended to me by an Ohoka couple whose stunning garden he had designed.
We made contact, and I was immediately impressed with his relaxed professional attitude, but also his efficiency in coming up with a workable design that incorporated our wish list as well as his own creative suggestions.

David's work is a happy marriage of the classical and the contemporary. In our town garden, I would say that one of his greatest strengths is how he maximised limited space by creating focal points such as pots and block walls, further enhanced just by changing the surface from say pavers to stones or grass. We would recommend David for a stress free experience and a wonderful end result"...

"I would just like to let you know how delighted we are with the garden you designed for our new home. You understood the type of garden we wanted to achieve and delivered a landscape plan that contained all the elements we wanted and made the most of our small site. The walls and courtyards create a private haven from a busy street, and the whole garden really compliments our home"...

"David has an eye for good design. Without fuss or fussiness he will provide his clients with what they are calling for - he listens and interprets.

In short, while his designs give that flair you pay for and expect from a professional designer they will also fit with the vision of the client.

If that vision hasn't been articulated well enough then David doesn't show the slight, sometimes referred to as an artistic temperament, that many professional designers are famously capable of - rather he amends until both he and the client approve the end result.

You can be assured that the finished garden will look as good as the drawing.

But he is more - David runs a business. He appreciates the importance of time. When David says he will have a task completed then that will be the time it is completed.

But more than design and his keeping to a promised timetable, David has a team of dedicated tradesmen who share with David a philosophy of quality and service. Without exception they performed both as to quality and timeliness.

I found David and the team, to be good communicators - this is also an important factor when considering who to engage.

I will finish by relating how I 1st became aware of David Taylor Landscape. I was the managing director of a medium size building company. David approached me and volunteered a landscape plan for a show home we were finishing.

I was impressed with his enterprise and with the design. It was a design we used.

In short, David has a low key "get up and go" approach. He is enthusiastic about his business and portrays a mien that says "I enjoy what I do and I enjoy doing it well."
