We always like to share our customer’s experiences with you, we’ve included a list of our treasured feedback below.
From our first meeting with Jim, Bravo Landscapes were both friendly and professional. Jim took on our ideas and provided expert advice on how to make the most of our garden. The team worked extremely hard and made great efforts to tidy the work area at the end of each day.
I would definitely recommend Bravo Landscapes to anyone wanting a garden design of high quality. Special thanks to Helen for all her phone call and emails too.
Mr & Mrs Richardson, Etton, August 2018
Thank you so much for making my dream garden come true. Your professionalism and that of your team were brilliant. The young men were so respectful & pleasant they were a joy to see every day, working tirelessly through the heatwave without complaint, when I had to stay inside out of the sun!
Thank you once again Jim & I will definitely recommend you & your team to any of my friends who require your services. The garden is wonderful!
Mrs Greenley, North Ferriby, July 2018
The team at Bravo Landscapes have made such a difference to my outside living space. Jim’s plan transferred from paper to reality.
My garden has been transformed from a neglected area which required three skips full of debris to be removed into a real garden and I could not be happier with the result. Jim and the team worked so hard with good humour. I would have no hesitation recommending Bravo. Thank you all for a great job well done.
Sue, Anlaby Common, May 2018
Bravo team have transformed my garden. Love it! Bravo!! Bravo
Mrs Hutchings, Willerby, May 2018
Very pleased with Jim's design and with his workforce, work was carried out quickly and efficiently. Very pleased with outstanding way the garden turned out, finished to a high and pleasant standard. Would highly recommend Bravo Landscapes, thank you.
Graham & Eileen, Hessle, April 2018
Bravo Landscapes have completely renewed our garden. We had a first meeting with Jim to discuss the things we wanted to include in the new garden. Jim prepared a design, which we liked, and we discussed this at a second meeting and agreed some small changes.
The Bravo team completed the work in just over a week. We are very pleased with every aspect of the workmanship, the quality of materials used and the attention to detail shown throughout.
We chose to do our own planting but Bravo would have done this if required.
We are delighted with our new garden and would recommend Bravo without hesitation.
Lyn and Bryan, Cottingham, March 2018
Great company to work with. Really helpful with the design. Lots of suggestions.
The finish was excellent - great attention to detail.
We now have a fabulous outdoor space that the family can enjoy for many years.
Would definitely recommend this company and would use Bravo again! Thank you
The Miller family, Swanland, February 2018
After looking at the Bravo Landscapes website, which was very impressive, I called Helen who was exceptionally helpful and arranged for Jim to visit for an initial consultation. We discussed with Jim our requirements and he suggested ideas and materials to use, which we were very grateful for.
Jim and the team arrived as arranged and all the guys worked tirelessly, explaining any changes and asking our thoughts at every stage. Jim discussed the planting with us and made suggestions to help. We now have a beautiful garden to enjoy, I cannot thank the team enough. The young guys who worked as a team were polite, hardworking and a credit to Bravo Landscapes.
We are now hoping to start project 2 (our front garden) and we will not hesitate to contact Helen, Jim & the team. Therefore I cannot recommend Bravo Landscapes highly enough!! Thank you all so much!
Mr & Mrs O'Keeffe, Welton, February 2018
From our first consultation with Jim and throughout our landscaping project Bravo Landscapes have been exceptional, highly professional, reliable and friendly.
Jim took our initial idea and turned it into something that exceeded expectations. We really do have a magical, unique outdoor space now that the whole family can enjoy and we cannot recommend them enough.
Thank you very much Jim and your amazing team.
Mr & Mrs Jones, Shiptonthorpe, January 2018
I can highly recommend Bravo Landscapes. I am thoroughly delighted with my garden makeover from the new closeboard fence to the astroturf lawn. So looking forward to seeing the plantings grown & bloom.
Thankyou all at Bravo Landscapes for a professional job well carried out.
Mrs S, Beverley, February 2018
I had to wait about 6 months after first contacting Bravo Landscapes before Jim and his team could do my garden makeover because they were so busy; usually a good sign that they are good and I wasn't disappointed. It took a while to get my design right - both in terms of the structure and the budget - but once agreed upon it was all systems go. Jim's team of lads are super; hard working, skilled, polite and cheerful, even in some of the dreadful weather they had to endure throughout the fortnight in December it took to undertake the redesign. Jim was also on site a lot to make sure everything was spot on and no stone was left unturned as far as accuracy and finish were concerned. There was a lot of mess as the team had to totally dig up and clear both the front and back gardens before the new garden could be "installed" and, generally, the place was left in good order each evening. The "new" garden is everything I had hoped for and more and already looks fabulous in the depths of Winter so will look even better as it takes shape in Spring and Summer. So thanks to you all, including Helen, who seems to work quietly but efficiently behind the scenes!
Ms Barker, South Cave, December 2017
“Thank you so much for transforming our garden. You have done a wonderful job and we are extremely happy with it. Would be vey happy to use you again in the future and recommend your services to any one of my family and friends.”
Mr & Mrs Codd, Beverley, September 2017
“The team worked extremely hard during our garden re-organisation, removing some 3 tonnes of earth and soil ready for re-turfing and fitting the 3”x3” posts in a wave form around the raised borders, some 15 metres in all.... Every piece had to be hand cut individually and the end result was well worth it! The guys made an excellent job of it all and we are more than happy with the finished result.”
Mr & Mrs Errington, Cherry Burton, August 2017
“We are so glad we booked Bravo Landscapes to design and landscape our garden. From the first initial visit we knew we were in expert hands. Jim helped us to see the potential of our garden and advised us on every aspect from patio materials, plants to fencing, trees and lighting. We had a rough idea what we liked but Jim helped us to turn our ideas into a fantastic reality. His team worked relentlessly in all weathers over a 3 week period to transform our, once tired and lacklustre, garden into an oasis with ‘wow’ factor. We cannot recommend Bravo Landscapes highly enough for their amazing designs, quality work and great after sales care. Thank you again.”
Dr & Mrs Kieran, Willerby, June 2017
“A few lines to express our thanks for the lovely garden we now have, it is difficult to remember what it was like before. Jim has such a creative eye for design and listened to our requirements. In essence we wanted to make our garden as age friendly as possible and somewhere we could enjoy throughout the year; this has certainly been achieved and already we are spending a great deal of our time outside in the lovely setting. Once the team got started they were very efficient, professional and extremely polite. From arriving each morning they worked so hard and each night the site was left clean and tidy. Jim offered us advice when we asked for it regarding planting and maintenance resulting in a totally transformed, practical and beautiful outdoor area. A great team effort.”
Peter & Sue Robson, Hull, June 2017
“Jim quickly understood what we wanted and instantly sketched it for us. The project was well managed and efficiently executed. We are delighted with the results.”
Mr & Mrs Walmsley, Beverley, May 2017
“A really good job - I couldn’t of asked for anything better.”
Miss Batch, North Ferriby, May 2017
"I just want to send a huge 'Thank You' to your company for transforming what before could only be described as an outside area on my property, into a 'garden'! Your workers were very polite and very tidy which was most appreciated. My garden is now a place where me and my daughter can relax and enjoy safely! Thanks ever so much for all your hard work, both in carrying out the work and helping me achieve a garden within my means. I was passed your name from recommendation of one of my neighbours, and having had you carry the work out, I would not hesitate in recommending you to others myself! You have added another room to my home. Many thanks"
Mrs Pearson, Hull, March 2017
"When we first met you we couldn’t have predicted it was the beginning of a journey to media stardom! You were able to take our (often contradictory!) ideas and come up with a design that perfectly suits our garden, its location and also our family. You have made our garden part of our lives again – every day we feel lucky to work and play in such a lovely space. From the planting of tree ferns, to the sunken seating, to the low ropes and stepping stones, the garden is constantly surprising and fun to be in. We’re not at all surprised that Alan Titchmarsh and his team chose your wonderful design to film for “Love your garden” or that gardening magazines seem intent on stealing your ideas. Thank you so much for giving us back our garden – we now have a family space where we can eat, drink and play together. We very much hope you’ll be back soon to tackle our front garden which needs some of your magic touch! "
Elspeth and Mark Timmans, Beverley, March 2017
"We demolished & re-built an old outbuilding at the end of our garden, a lot of the work was carried out by ourselves and the result was a lovely place for outdoor living. Initially it was our intention to plan and carry out the external works ourselves, however, whilst looking for ideas we came across the Bravo Landscapes website. It was clearly outstanding from anything else we had seen. As a result we called Helen and she arranged for Jim to visit us for an initial consultation. Jim listened carefully to our requirements and subsequently returned with a proposal that really went beyond our expectations. There were some changes to trim the design to our budget but eventually an agreement was reached between us and a start date agreed. Jim and the boys turned up when he said they would. Despite awful weather on the first day they soldiered on manfully. The great thing about these guys is you can work with them all. There were some glitches in the process but we were all able to collectively overcome them. Changes along the way were no trouble and we were kept well informed about everything that was done before any key decisions were made. All in all a very smooth process with a stunning end result. The landscaping compliments the new building and we now have a beautiful area that we can finally enjoy to the full. Bravo are the elite in what they do, their work is first class and we are so pleased that we got them involved. Many thanks to Jim, Nathan, Louis, Tom, Tom, & Lance for a superb job they are a great bunch and we were sorry to see them go!!"
John and Dawn Ward, Skirlaugh, March 2017
" We can highly recommend Jim and his team. The quality and professionalism was clear from the initial discussions where Jim listened carefully to our requirements, adding helpful suggestions and practical, technical solutions, through to the construction and completion of the work. The team were excellent, working with pride and care, even clearing up on a daily basis to make this the least intrusive project we have ever done. Many thanks! "
Martin & Margaret, Walkington; December 2016
"Thrilled with our new contemporary garden which is the envy of our friends! Bravo Landscapes team are seriously hardworking & professional. Thank-you so much!!"
Mr & Mrs Martin, West Ella; October 2016
" We can thoroughly recommend Jim and his team. Earlier in the year, Jim redesigned our patio area, taking note of our thoughts, and then providing us with a range of options. We chose a curved patio, and asked the team to create curves in our lawn to complement the new patio. There is a lovely sense of flow in the garden now, and the shapes are very visually appealing. The team from Bravo replaced our back fence, and removed the tired, old planting from in front of the fence. They set us on our way with creating a new border, planting apple trees and other new additions which we had chosen, and giving us inspiration for further planting. Jim and his team were happy to provide expert advice and ideas at every stage of the process, and worked tirelessly. The quality of the workmanship is top-rate, and our back garden has been transformed into a much more characterful space, which we are enjoying very much. "
Nick and Alison - Beverley; September 2016
" I wouldn’t hesitate to use Bravo Landscapes again and highly recommend them. Expert advice and guidance was given to create the design, which has given my garden the facelift it needed. The customer care was excellent as well as the quality of work. The guys were polite, hardworking and clearly took pride in their work. They ensured after each day they cleared and tidied , which just added to the positive experience we had with Bravo Landscapes. "
Mr & Mrs Ball - Beverley; September 2016
" Jim and his team transformed our garden from what was basically a blank canvas of a lawn and a wasteland of a side garden resulting from an extension to our house. We now have a modern, usable garden which compliments and is befitting of the property that it surrounds. We had already had garden design plans drawn up independently, but in hindsight I think we could have had Jim as he was so good at offering ideas and tweaking our design to one that would work, whilst remaining true to the original design. He took time to discuss building materials for the hard landscaping, providing material samples and photographs, and where possible, site visits to completed projects to see pavers and so on. The work involved thorough preparation of ground work such as digging out proper foundations for the patio and so on. It was no trouble for Jim to add to the work as it evolved, as ours was a large project we thought of additions as we went along. Not least the fact that we'd got a new puppy so Jim built a secure fence with gates that weren't in the original design. Our garden involved reshaping and providing a set border for the rear lawn, raised decking, extensive patio with planting areas, areas laid to aggregate plus a second circular patio to catch the last of the evening sun, and a vegetable garden consisting of a series of raised beds made from railway sleepers. The side garden consists of a contemporary cedar fence to screen my washing line and chicken coop, a herb garden, pergola, water feature with stepping stones and the construction of a contemporary rendered wall behind which the pump for the water feature is housed. The whole project took the best part of a month, during which time the hardworking team were there every day whatever the weather, always very amiable which is important when you have people working around your home. Jim wasn't an 'absentee boss' he was very hands on and was present almost every day that the work was taking place. Also he was mindful of ways in which we could save money such as upcycling existing pavers. Whilst we didn't have Bravo Landscapes' full planting service, they included sourcing and planting of 9 huge Box balls which create an impressive approach to the front of our property. We are very pleased with the overall quality of the finished product and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending Bravo to anyone. We are going to take our time to choose plants and garden furniture but in the meantime Bravo have created a fabulous garden that we are going to enjoy for many years to come. "
Mr & Mrs Mcloughlin, Brandesburton; August 2016
" A great experience with Bravo Landscapes. Everything from the initial contact with Helen in the office through to the finished project was first class. We had the garden completely re-designed by Jim who sent us a selection of designs to choose from. It’s always difficult to visualise the finished project from a computer graphic, but we were blown away with how the garden looked when Jim and the team had finished. We love how our new garden looks and would recommend Bravo Landscapes as your first port of call. "
Tom & Pam Cavanagh, Beverley; August 2016
" Excellent design and workmanship, everyone has commented on how our garden looks larger than before. The team onsite worked hard, and we enjoyed seeing the transformation every day. "
Karen & Alan - Kingswood, Hull; July 2016
" Jim produced an original design for our new garden, taking into account all our requirements, including a bespoke veranda. The project attracted many favourable comments from friends and neighbours, and we were happy to recommend Bravo to them. We were also impressed with the fast turnaround from initial consultation to completion. "
Mr & Mrs Horrigan, Hull; June 2016
" We first had Bravo Landscapes re-model our garden around 10 years ago and they have done work for us since, as recently as May of this year. Jim listens to your ideas and transforms them into something you could never have imagined yourself. The creativity and craftsmanship shown by Jim and his team has transformed our garden into a place where we get great pleasure all the year round. "
Trevor & Shirley Stephenson, Hessle; May 2016
" We would highly recommend Jim and his team. The whole process from the design through to the completion of the garden went smoothly thanks to their collaborative approach. We are delighted with the quality of their work and how quickly it all came together. The results speak for themselves. "
Mr & Mrs Haslope, North Ferriby; May 2016
" Bravo has completely transformed our tired looking garden into a contemporary and functional garden, which we look forward to spending time in throughout the year. We came to Jim with a fairly specific brief, which he translated into a clear garden plan, bringing in his own ideas and expertise to create something that really met our needs. Jim’s team worked tirelessly throughout the build, which was finished on time and on budget, and to an extremely high standard. "
Steve & Emma, Beverley; April 2016
" Jim and his team did a great job transforming our rear garden into an extension of our family living space. Their approach was professional, skilled, flexible and friendly and the result was stunning. Buy from Bravo! Buy from Bravo!! Buy from Bravo!!! "
The Ulrick family, North Ferriby; April 2016
"Many thanks to Bravo Landscapes. Love the garden, workmanship very good. Worked very hard all day, planned well, work on time. Many thanks again."
Mr & Mrs Platten, Hessle; March 2016
"We have nothing but positive feedback on Bravo, they arrived on time as per the quote and completed well ahead of schedule. They were a polite group of workers and arrived every day regardless of the weather. They cleaned down every day too so there was no mess for the neighbours to complain about. The finished product is superb and we are more than happy with it. All our friends, family and neighbours have commented on how great it looks. The overall service from Bravo has been friendly and easy going, we would recommend them to everyone. Thanks again for the amazing transformation to our property both front and back."
Mr & Mrs Burwell, Kingswood, Hull; February 2016
"We would like to say a huge "thank you” to Jim and his very professional team. They have transformed our sloping garden to a manageable, impressive garden to be proud of! We knew it was going to be good - but it has surpassed our expectations. Many thanks."
Lorna & Bryan Auty, Walkington; February 2016
"Bravo Landscapes provided us with excellent quality materials and workmanship. They gave us good, sound advice whilst providing what we wanted and nothing was too much trouble. They made a prompt start every day even through some pretty bad weather. The workers cleaned up and hosed down the whole area every day before leaving. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who is looking for a good quality job doing. The final result was far above what we expected. A really beautiful garden area fit for our purpose. We can't wait for the weather to be able to enjoy it. BRAVO to all the workforce of Bravo Landscapes!!!"
Danny and Lynda Brown, Hull; January 2016
"We cannot speak highly enough of Jim and his team, from the initial design and quotation discussions to the sheer hard graft of his team that has resulted in the lovely transformation of our garden. Despite what weather conditions prevailed on the day the team always arrived promptly, worked solidly and at the end of the day, no matter what stage of the process they had reached, left the site in a clean and manageable state. (Even the neighbours were impressed!!) During the process as with any project, amendments or adjustments sometimes arise but these were handled professionally and effortlessly by Jim without any detriment to the original plan. All in all we cannot say more other than if you’re considering having your garden changed, be it new fencing, new high quality paving, new lawn or redesign of your garden then I would strongly recommend Bravo Landscapes"
Mr & Mrs Douglas, Beverley; January 2016
"I highly recommend Bravo Landscapes, the standard of their work was very high. They arrived promptly at the specified time, the job was well carried out and the whole area was left clean & tidy. Thank you for a job well done."
Mrs Swift, Beverley; January 2016
"Jim & Helen, I cannot begin to tell you how delighted I am with the work that Bravo Landscapes has done for me. The front & rear gardens are totally transformed to a standard that I could only have imagined.
You have a team of honest, hardworking lads that you can have confidence in delivering a first class job. Hang on to them! Thank-you once again and I will not hesitate in recommending your services.
I wish you all the best for your business."
Laura, Beverley; September 2015
"Jim and his hard working staff have completely transformed our garden! The design met our requirements perfectly and we now enjoy spending time in it. We have had so many lovely comments from family and friends. Thank you for giving us a practical garden for the children to play in but one that looks great too! We really appreciate your patience too, so so happy with it!!"
Mr & Mrs Shaw, North Ferriby; September 2015
"High quality work, very professional crew!"
Mr & Mrs Antoniades, Beverley; August 2015
"I had a small patio laid. They came (3 of them) and set to, preparing the area thoroughly and laid the paving stones very professionally. They did a superb job leaving it extremely tidy, plus made sure I was happy with the completed work. I would certainly ask them to quote for any other jobs I may have in the future."
Ms Louise Morgan, Cottingham; July 2015
"Excellent hard working firm. Our garden is a picture after their endeavours. Would certainly recommend them."
Mr & Mrs Keating, Beverley; July 2015
"”BRAVO”, you really deserve your name! The job you did at my home was not short of miraculous and in two days your team was punctual, very efficient and very hard working. Congratulations & many many thanks from a very happy customer."
Mrs Wilson, The Avenues, Hull; July 2015
"Transformed our garden into an outside room which will be enjoyed for years to come. Tidy & efficient and completed the job on time."
David & Michaela Imrie, North Ferriby; June 2015
"Recently, Jim and his team have completely transformed our front garden. We explained briefly what we wanted and then left it to Jim. The design, choice of plants and general creative arrangement of stones, gravel and pebbles are just perfect and have been much admired. The three young men who worked on it were a credit to themselves and the company. They worked so hard and were meticulous in their finishing touches and cleaning. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Bravo Landscapes to anyone."
Mr & Mrs Britton, Willerby; June 2015
"Very professional job. Conscientious, friendly workers. Whole experience totally painless. Highly delighted with results. Many thanks."
Mr & Mrs Kitson, Anlaby; June 2015

Mr Walker, Driffield; June 2015
"Jim and his team were always on time, worked non-stop, very reliable, cleaned up every night and nothing was too much trouble. My garden has been totally transformed and the end result is a fantastic garden. Many thanks."
Ms Jewitt, Cottingham; May 2015
"Jim and his team at Bravo Landscapes have done a superb job on our garden. The craftsmanship is second to none. Despite the terrible weather they were always cheerful and polite. The garden looks as good as anything we saw at Chelsea."
Mr & Mrs S, Cherry Burton; April 2015
"Now I know why you are called Bravo! We have to say ‘bravo’ to the team that has totally transformed our back garden.
Our sad saga began when the fish in our pond had gone for dinner – an otter’s dinner! Then the fountain started clogging up (again). Then there was a leak, which we fixed. Then there was another leak and we noticed the pond lining was becoming brittle. On top of that the cement under the paving slabs around the pond was coming away and the slabs themselves were becoming more and more uneven.
What were we to do? It was time to call in the ‘B Team’! Along came Jim, who listened to our predicament. It was a case of creating a new pond or doing something completely different with the area. After a degree of pond-ering we decided on the latter and gave Jim an idea of what we wanted. He came up with an imaginative design incorporating our vision – and more. We had a plan.
Helen kept in touch to inform us when the work would be carried out and then Jim arrived with three great lads and a big skip. After day one we thought ‘What have we done?’. The garden was stripped bare and looked like a building site. But in just two more days the garden had been transformed. And as they worked away tirelessly, the odd tweak here and there to the original plan allowed the project to develop into a masterpiece, all carried out with professionalism and to the highest standards.
Gone was the pond, gone was the tatty old lawn and gone was the tired looking paving. In its place was a circular lawn of lush turf, with a neat perimeter of setts, surrounded by a cottage-garden area complete with a pebble, stone and boulder pathway leading to a rustic wooden bench which was made on site. We suggested to Jim the type of plants we wanted and away he went, returning a couple of hours later with an abundance of them. They were planted in a thoughtful way to create a majestic scene of colour and texture. And before the four left, they cleared up and cleaned up.
So remember, if you have a garden that needs rescuing, you too can call the ‘B Team’! "
Mr & Mrs A, Driffield; March 2015
"We received 4 visits from Jim leading up to our job starting to discuss our requirements and his ideas. A detailed plan was presented to us which we were highly satisfied with. Jim and his team started the job when he said they would and worked really hard to finish it in the timescale. They were brilliant workers. The 2 lads a credit to Jim, polite, well mannered, clean and hard working. Everything was cleaned at the end of each day. The job was completed to our satisfaction. We would recommend Jim and his team to anyone."
Paul & Sharon, Willerby; February 2015
"We are highly delighted with Bravo Landscapes team’s work on our front and back gardens. The improvement is amazing. Whilst we were able to be fully involved in the planning of both the planting and landscaping, we also had lots of advice and support on all aspects of the work with a clear plan and planting scheme. Bravo Landscapes were extremely hard working, conscientious and professional. The complete project was carried out in just over 2 days. The team were flexible and were able to make adjustments as the work progressed and also used plants from our old flower beds to create the best effects. We are really looking forward to next spring as the newly planted garden comes into bud and flower. A very big thank you to the whole team."
Jon and Pauline, Tickton; December 2014
"What a great job carried out by Jim and his team. From the initial planning to completion. Always on time, and left the site spotless on completion. 1st class work. Would use again in the future for front garden and fencing requirements. Thanks again."
Lance & Sue Kirlew, Sutton Park; October 2014
"Bravo Landscapes did a brilliant job on our driveway. They worked really hard to get it finished in the timescale promised and on budget - I couldn’t recommend them more highly!"
Khedrubje Buddhist Centre, Hull; October 2014
"On our initial meeting with Jim we found him very helpful and open to our own ideas. Jim went away, drew up a plan and although we did not go with our original plan it was not a problem to him to provide us with a further plan which we went ahead with. Jim's staff where very pleasant, always prompt and worked all day long even in very heavy rain. They jet washed all areas each day and were very tidy workers. Jim and his staff hit unforeseen problems (through no fault of there own) and even though we were abroad on holiday the team continued with the job and Jim kept in contact with us explaining the problem and how he could resolve it. When we returned home all work completed, first class job, looked great. We, therefore, would highly recommend Jim and his team for all of your landscaping requirements."
Graham & Sue Taylor, Cottingham; October 2014
"The service provided was both efficient and friendly from quotation stage through to completion. Carried out by competent and personable staff."
Mr Brown, Cottingham; October 2014
"We are very happy with the sincere and professional way Jim and his team carried out our garden landscaping work. Everything was clearly explained to us and we were involved in the discussion right from the start and until the work was finished. We are delighted with the result. We recommend Jim and his team. We convey our best wishes to them."
Dr. VS, Swanland; September 2014
"What a lovely difference in our back garden it’s a pleasure to walk around it, why didn’t we do it before now. Can’t wait for Spring! Excellent job, what a great team - efficient, tidy. What next???? Thank you."
Mr & Mrs Whittaker, Cottingham; September 2014
"Professional, prompt, polite. I am very pleased with the new fence fitted by Bravo Landscapes. The whole service was excellent. Thank you."
Ms Ward, Beverley; September 2014
"Bravo really listened, the garden now blends their expertise and our original concept. From concept to completion a great team to work with. It’s the small touches and suggestions that have turned our idea into a great garden."
Mr & Mrs Clark, Anlaby; August 2014
"The first impression we had of Jim was someone who knew exactly what he was doing and that he listens to what you’d like to achieve. The end result was exactly what we were looking for. Jim, Helen and their staff make an excellent team and we highly recommend them. From the initial enquiry to hosing down on the last day of the job their service and attention to detail was excellent."
Mrs Pipes, Willerby; August 2014
"We now have a perfect path constructed by conscientious professionals. All completed on time and on budget. We highly recommend, without reservation, Jim and his team at Bravo Landscapes."
Mr & Mrs H, Etton; August 2014
" From the initial consultation and design, Bravo provided an excellent service. They were reliable and quick and resolved unforeseen issues without any fuss. We would certainly recommend them to friends & family."
John & Louise Shields, Cottingham; July 2014
"I choose Bravo Landscapes based on recommendations. Got exactly what I asked for, along with Jim's own suggestions which improved the final look and kept the cost to the budget available. The whole team are friendly and professional, the quality of work is excellent. You will not be disappointed with their service."
Mr Piercy, Cottingham; June 2014
"Very impressed with finished garden. Jim and his staff arrived promptly and continued to work through some heavy down pours of rain for the two days that completed the job. He was always helpful and courteous. I would thoroughly recommend his services. I can see he has pride in what he achieves for his customers."
Mr & Mrs Blaza, Hull; May 2014
"Jim and the lads made a really good job of our garden, cannot stop looking at it, everyone who calls round thinks it's lovely. They were always on time, worked hard all day long, polite and well mannered."
Dorothy & Den, Cottingham; April 2014
"Many thanks to Jim and the guys for the professional work they carried out for us on our new garden. Jim interpreted our ideas and produced a garden exactly as we visualised. The quality of workmanship, the way in which they carried out the landscaping and the degree of detail and advice was really appreciated, which resulted in the end job of high quality. Would gladly recommend - Thank you!"
Mr & Mrs Minns, North Newbald; April 2014
"After searching for many months to find a company who could deliver our dream garden, we came across Bravo Landscapes. The full process from start to finish was stress free and enjoyable. Jim listened to our ideas and expertly put pen to paper, Jim and his team were professional throughout the full process and nothing was too much trouble for them. If you are after a garden that truly has the 'wow' factor then i strongly advise you contact Bravo, we couldn't be happier!! Thank you once again."
Mr & Mrs Chinery, Hull; April 2014
"We chose Bravo Landscapes because we really felt they listened and understood our requirements. The design they created incorporated all aspects of what we wanted from our garden. The workmanship was excellent, professional helpful and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending them, in fact we already have!"
Mr & Mrs Lewis, Cottingham; March 2014
"We acquired a scruffy and very overgrown piece of land that adjoined our property and wanted to merge it with our existing garden. Bravo Landscapes was recommended to us and, from our first meeting with Jim, we were impressed by his professionalism and willingness to listen to our requirements. We felt we were fully involved in the planning of the new garden: Jim considered all our comments very carefully but also made his own suggestions enabling us to benefit from his greater experience. We then left Jim and the team to transform the land into our dream garden while we went off to Portugal for 6 weeks! During our absence Jim kept us informed and regularly emailed photographs illustrating progress. On our return we couldn’t have been happier. The garden is absolutely beautiful and far exceeds our expectations. Thank you Bravo Landscapes!"
Chris and Judith Makepeace, Beverley; March 2014
"After discussing our garden ideas with a number of landscape companies, Bravo Landscapes stood out among all others. With a typically small estate size garden we had an idea and a theme and of course a budget to work with but we wanted something bold. Jim was able to translate our ideas into a beautifully sketched blueprint which totally captured the essence of what we wanted whilst adding a number of other features we had not thought of. From start to finish, Bravo Landscapes worked with professionalism, flexibility and great skill and attention to detail. After each working day, they cleaned up, washed the working area down and left it clean and tidy, ready for the next days labour. The work was completed on time and to budget whilst accommodating some changes on the way. The team was friendly and accommodating and indeed the entire experience was truly pleasurable. Our garden has been transformed from a plain lawn into a place of interest and beauty whilst remaining functional and practical. We cannot recommend Bravo Landscapes enough. Thank you guys!"
Matt & Janet, Beverley; January 2014

Mr & Mrs Des Forges, Elloughton; January 2014
"We contacted Jim on recommendation and are delighted with the results of our subsequent garden makeover. Our own ideas were incorporated into his design and Jim and his team worked extremely hard to complete the project without any inconvenience to us. We would not hesitate in recommending Bravo Landscapes to our friends."
Mr & Mrs T, Beverley; December 2013
"We are delighted by the quality and standard of work carried out by Bravo Landscapes. From the initial enquiry to the completion of the patio, Jim, Helen and the team have been helpful, professional and efficient.
I would not hesitate in recommending Bravo Landscapes and look forward to working with them again for the next stage in completing my garden."
Mrs G, Dunswell; September 2013
"We were delighted by the transformation of our drive by Bravo Landscapes. We found Jim and his team to be a friendly, hardworking and professional group. The work was finished on time and to budget and we would happily recommend them."
Mr & Mrs H, Little Weighton; September 2013
"The advice help and quality of the work I received from Bravo Landscapes was outstanding. As is often the case I am sure, I changed what I wanted doing part way through the process. I was treated very courteously at all times and all the 'extra bits' were done with no trouble at all. It was a great relief to find a pleasant, helpful person at the end of the phone each time I rang. Calls were returned promptly and I felt that everyone at Bravo were professional and enjoyed their work.
The end result is a garden which shows that people were prepared to go the extra mile. Thank you very much."
Carole Collinson, Cottingham; September 2013
"We had an ugly overgrown corner of our garden and it was transformed into a colourful rock garden. We are very pleased with the work."
Mr & Mrs Nutbrown, North Newbald; August 2013
"Excellent work from design conception to completion. All the lads worked very hard, clearing up every evening. We have had nothing but rave reviews from our neighbours, family and friends and would not hesitate in recommending Jim and his team to anyone interested in transforming their garden."
Mr. & Mrs. D. Cottingham; August 2013
"We chose Bravo Landscapes because from the beginning Jim listened to what we wanted and then added his expertise. The design for our garden was just what we wanted and we couldn't wait for the team to start. From the first day on the job the whole team worked extremely hard, were professional and conscientious. We are very delighted with the end results. Our garden has been transformed from a dull canvas to a show garden.
Thank you Jim and all the Bravo team! We would strongly recommend Bravo Landscapes to anyone looking to upgrade their garden, we can't thank them enough."
Mr & Mrs Tomlinson, Skidby; July 2013
"We have used Bravo Landscapes for three different jobs and have always been very pleased with Jim's professional approach, attention to detail and the friendly manner of his team. Many thanks."
Mrs Hodgson, Beverley; May 2013
"We would like to thank Jim and the Bravo team for a 1st class service. We were delighted with all aspects of the work done from start to finish. We found Bravo Landscapes thoroughly professional and hard working culminating in a well finished job."
Mr & Mrs Clark; June 2013
"Many thanks for designing, laying and finishing our patio area, front driveway and pathways. The expertise, honesty and integrity of you and your team was a pleasure to observe. Every day provided a full schedule of works, maximum utilisation of time and materials and a professionalism which sets your high standards and places you at the top of your industry.
The work was carried out on time, within budget and to a perfect finish on all areas. Housekeeping and attitude was exemplary throughout the period. Our friends and neighbours have all admired your work and without doubt you will be recommended by us both."
Mick and Margaret Burchill, Willerby; April 2013
"We found Jim at Bravo Landscapes creative in his design of our awkwardly shaped back garden and more than willing to accommodate one or two items which we wished to retain. He was most helpful with any concerns we had. He and his team were very thorough in the execution of the finished design paying great attention to detail. We are delighted with the finished work and hope Bravo can arrange a nice warm summer so that we can make full use of our new garden!! We would have no hesitation in recommending Bravo Landscapes. Thanks again to you all."
Mr & Mrs Jones, Cottingham; April 2013
"We gave Jim a sketchy idea of all the things we wanted to achieve in our garden and by taking the time to carefully explore and develop ideas with us, he absolutely came up with everything we had hoped for.
Jim and his team worked promptly and efficiently to transform our garden. There were no unforeseen ‘hitches’ or delays – a tribute to all the careful planning and preparation.
We are truly delighted with our new garden and have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Jim and the Bravo Landscapes Team. We are looking forward to the next transformation of the front garden!"
Mr & Mrs Noble, Beverley; March 2013
"Jim and his team transformed my small garden. The design was carefully thought out based around what I had asked for and the workmanship was terrific.
I am thrilled with the result and definitely recommend Bravo Landscapes!"
Kath, The Avenues, Hull; November 2012.
"Bravo Landscapes did an excellent job on our rear patio and front paving. We would not hesitate to recommend them for any of your landscaping requirements. Extremely professional in their attitude to the whole project."
Pat & Glen Robinson, Kirkella; December 2012
"We were delighted throughout our dealings with Bravo Landscapes. Jim brought real design flair to our modest garden space – much more than we thought possible! - whilst ensuring just the right level of practicality. We were very impressed with the design process, Jim’s level of attention to detail, and how well it matched our expectations. He took time to understand our requirements and play these back to us (e.g., marking out the design in the garden) to ensure we were happy.
From the moment the Bravo Landscapes Team arrived to carry out the physical works, it was evident we had a very professional, friendly and hard-working team on the job. Everything was coordinated for us: all we had to do was sit back and marvel at the developing progress across the 6 days. I’ve managed a number of building projects, but it’s fair to say I don’t think I have seen such a hard-working team. We know this was not just for show at the start/end of the day either, because our neighbours also commented on how tirelessly they worked - both at the time and since – and have asked for contact details.
We had a specific budget for the garden design work and the planting: Bravo Landscapes helped us manage this balance very well, and were even able to identify cost-saving opportunities where appropriate.
Having had the work carried out in October, we can’t wait to enjoy our beautiful, new garden in the spring and summer.
I would be happy to recommend Bravo Landscapes without hesitation, and wish them the very best of business success."
Mr J Oxley & Ms D Tate, Leconfield; October 2012
"Thank-you for transforming our front garden. The job was stress free, good communications at all times and everything turned out spot on! Jim and his team worked hard & well at all times, came when they said they would and when they left the place was clean & tidy. Would have no problem recommending them, in fact I already have. Special mention to Nathan, you did great!! Everybody who worked here were polite, non demanding and hardworking. A big thank-you."
Mrs Jennings, Cottingham; August 2012
"We would like to say thank you for the hard work delivered by you and your team during your recent works on our drive and garden space. The workmanship has shown to be of a very high standard indeed. We are extremely happy with the final result. You have created a much appreciated and useful space from what had been a difficult area. We would gladly recommend your Company to anyone. The work was completed within the stated time and under budget! Not something that happens very often. All aspects of the work from the pergola, trellis, down to the hand made gates will be a source of pleasure fro a very long time. Many Thanks"
Mr & Mrs Smith, Anlaby; September 2012
"We cannot give enough praise. A thoroughly professional job was completed within the timescale given. Jim gave us good advice and spent the first couple of days on site. His team work very hard and have a no-nonsense approach to work. We have no complaints only praise. Thank you for a wonderful job."
Jan & Rich Cockerline, Beverley; September 2012
"We were very impressed by the standard of workmanship and the detail of Jim and his team when they transformed our garden. The whole team worked very hard on the project and they ensured that we were always consulted if there were any minor amendments or changes. The end result is a beautiful garden and living space for us our family and friends to enjoy."
Jim & Julie Hyam, Cottingham; March 2012
"We recently had our garden landscaped by Bravo Landscapes and found the whole experience a pleasure from start to finish. The quality of workmanship is excellent, all the staff were polite and very hardworking. Our input into the design was listened to, discussed and incorporated, which along with Jim’s experience and ideas resulted in the perfect garden for us.
We are delighted with the finished article and look forward to the garden growing and evolving over the years to improve on what is already an interesting garden, even in these early stages. We have no hesitation in recommending Bravo Landscapes as they were able to complete all the skills needed to build our garden to a very high standard."
Peter Murray & Janet Taylor; July 2011
"From the initial consultation we were impressed with the vision and ideas Jim could bring to the project. The subsequent meetings and actual carrying out of the work proved both the flexibility and professionalism inherent within his team. The work was completed to a high standard across all aspects of civil engineering, fencing, gate making and making sure the new area dovetailed in with the existing garden. An excellent job completed on time and within budget to our great satisfaction."
John & Jayne Grayson, Kirkella; August 2011
"There are very few companies that I would recommend whole heatedly and without hesitation, but Bravo Landscapes is certainly one. Their workmanship is outstanding, as is their attention to detail. Nothing was ever too much trouble, no matter how many times I changed my mind! They have the ethos ‘time is money’ and they didn’t waste a single minute, working in all weathers to make my garden shining. At the end of each day everything was cleared up – something my neighbours commented on too. I am glad to have this opportunity to tell others just how fantastic they are and thank them for creating a garden I never thought possible. It is truly wonderful."
Dr & Mrs Wills, Kirkella; September 2011
"We have used Bravo Landscapes on a couple of occasions. They did such a great job in our garden, we called them back again to improve the driveway and front lawn. The work and work ethics from Jim and his team are truly exceptional and we would highly recommend them with the highest of confidence to anyone. The final outcome of both projects exceeded our expectations but what stood out more than anything was the professionalism, attention to detail, cleanliness and tidiness of their work at the end of each day. No need to worry about mess, disruption or tidiness with these guys, as quick as it’s created it’s disposed of! Huge bonus, our surrounding neighbours commented on how organised and professional this company was. Sincere thank you to Jim and his team for all their exceptional work from start to finish."
Mr & Mrs Morton, Hull; September 2011
"Just like to say thank you to you all for the superb job you made of the garden at Golf Links Drive. You are a great team.
Thank you to Jim for your interpretation of my first rather vague comments, for seeing the potential in the garden, taking the time to get the plan right and being willing to listen throughout the project.
Thank you to all the team for your hard work taking the garden apart and putting it back together. I appreciate the way you all just got on with the job, cleaned up at the end of each day, could be trusted with the key to lock up the garage when we went out, showed attention to all the finishing touches and cleared up thoroughly on the last day.
Thank you for creating a garden that is such a pleasure to be in and work in."
Mr & Mrs M, Brough.
"Our new home came with a blank canvas for a garden. Jim worked with us to design a garden that would meet all our requirements. He gave us very good advice on the design, focal points, paving stone, lighting and planting. The work was then carried out to a very professional standard and we are delighted with the transformation. We are more than happy to recommend Jim and his team."
Mr & Mrs Crimlis of Kingswood, Hull; February 2011
"We are extremely delighted with the excellent work carried out by Jim and his team at Bravo Landscapes. They were fast, efficient and the quality of the transformation was excellent. The communication through the whole process was great and all the team are polite and friendly. We will use them in future."
Nigel Moore, Walkington; August 2010
"We have been delighted by the work carried out by Bravo Landscapes. From the first meeting with Jim, he listened to what we wanted, He then came up with an imaginative design. Work started on time and remained on schedule (despite the snow!) and on budget. The men were all polite, cheerful and nothing was too much trouble. They quietly got on with their work and you didn't know they were here. Would thoroughly recommend Jim and his men."
Mr & Mrs Jones, Newland Park; May 2010
"We are both pleased with the result and would just like to thank you for what you have done which makes the whole garden feel very different to what it used to."
Mr & Mrs Taylor, Patrington Haven, March 2010
"Just a short note Jim to say how much Janis and myself appreciate the quality work of you and your team. The whole process from initial planning to quality completion was done in a thoroughly professional manner that is a credit to you. Good luck to you in building your business in the future. We will certainly recommend you".
Ian and Janis Turnbull, Cottingham, April 2010
"We had a large fish pond that we were reluctant to get rid of, but our circumstances changed and dictated this. We contacted Jim at Bravo. He came to see us and gave us some different ideas, brought us a design which was an excellent plan and very accurate.
He gave us a starting date, and came on time. Jim and his team were always on time and were very friendly and helpful. The workmanship was excellent and when they had finished for the day they left the premises as they found it.
We are so pleased with the results that it has made it easier to loose the fishpond. Nothing was too much trouble for the team. We were so impressed that we have asked Jim to come back and undertake a second garden project.
I would not hesitate to recommend Jim and his team to anybody"
June Tocknell and Cindy Hall Anlaby Common, May 2010

"One word describes Bravo Landscapes - FAB!
They help you from the beginning to achieve your ideal garden, work with you and tell you honestly what will work for your personal needs. The great thing is that if you have ideas they use them and encourage your input, which sometimes is unusual. They have a timetable and they stick to it, completely reliable and a pleasure to have on your property, they leave no mess and do not ask for drinks all day long as they bring their own.
They use high quality materials and if you have any queries or problems they sort any problem out. The staff are polite and courteous and nothing is a problem. They aim to make your garden a showpiece and mine certainly is now, so from concept to completion, fab"

We would recommend Bravo Landscapes very highly. Thank you."
Mr & Mrs P, Cottingham
"We had our very sloping garden decked by Bravo and they did an excellent job, it has made such a difference to our life style. Before James came and gave us the idea, our garden was only usable for the dogs and we had a patio. Now we have space for a large table and chairs plus a lovely area for plants. I find the Bravo team do what they say they are going to, the price is exactly what the quote says and results are stunning."
Mr & Mrs Pearson, Little Weighton
"It was a pleasure to have Jim and his happy gang doing the alterations to our garden. They all worked hard, took great interest in the project, following the plan but most adaptable to any changes we wanted to make.
Most certainly, if we did any more changes to the garden we would be getting in touch with Jim and his happy and hard working team."
Mr & Mrs Shirley of Welton
Always kept to agreed timescales. Very honest and professional. I will recommend!"

The latest project in November 2008 included re-laying setts, laying of natural stone paving, step construction, building new timber raised beds and lawn border brickwork - an excellent job.
They are a great team of workmen and well organised by Jim (Lorne)"
