"After putting up with our sub standard garden and living with my botched landscaping for 12 years, it was time to bring in the professionals. We had seen a number of driveways and gardens that had been renovated by Hortus on Abraham Heights and were very impressed by the design, skill and quality of their work! We made contact and Kevin came round, to discuss what we wanted and whether this was practical. Straight away me n Emma could both tell that Hortus would be able to deliver what we wanted! The team (Kevin, James, Tom and Lee) have worked very hard and very professionally. They have been a pleasure to have around and our son Ted looked forward to them coming round every morning, to talk to them about what they were going to do next (as 7 year olds do). Although we were very fixed on what we wanted, if there were any problems or new ideas that could be added, they always communicated with us swiftly and clearly allowed us to come to a decision. When we asked for their opinion from their experiences, they were happy to assist. In summary, we called, they came, they planned, they quoted, we agreed, they set 3 weeks, they dug, they removed, they rebuilt, they finished, it took 3 weeks! WE are VERY HAPPY, our garden is awesome! I would recommend them to anyone ..... Thanks v much thanks! "

"Excellent job. James is an superb craftsman and we are really pleased with the result. Where does he put all that coffee though?"
Brian Yates, Paving
"We are delighted with our new drive, patios and paths. Hortus have provided an excellent service. The quality of work done by James was exceptional. From our first contact with Hortus until the end of the six week project, everyone involved has been pleasant, helpful and professional. We would highly recommend them."
Barry Robertshaw, Paving/Landscaping
"Thanks for re-furbishing my rear patio as discussed previously. It was very well done so thanks are also due to James for all the physically hard and time consuming work involved in re-setting the patio paving stones."
Richard Champness, Garden Maintenance/landscaping
"Brilliant service. I highly recommend Hortus to others looking for landscaping work done in Lancashire."
Paul Johnson, Landscaping
"Can highly reccommend Hortus, work carried out by James was superb. Among comments I received are 'wow', 'awesome', 'photographs do not do the work justice'. I was amazed at the phenomenal amount of prep work it took to achieve the finished look. James is an absolute 'diamond', a pleasure to have on site, a complete proffesional, all work carried out with no mess, no fuss. If James does work for you, stock up on coffee ( he drinks gallons!), sit back and watch ' The Master' do a ' Proper Job'. And last but not least, not a ' builder's bum-crack in sight! Bonus "

"I have used Hortus for several years for garden maintenance – grass cutting, hedge trimming and patio power washing. Having my front garden, which was a conventional lawn plus a border, landscaped as a Japanese style garden with stones, a wall and a stone tumble dotted with shrubs, was undertaken very efficiently by Hortus. I initially thought their quote expensive, but I had considerably under-estimated the amount of work involved. My sister and I designed the garden and then collaborated with the firm’s owner Kevin to assess its practicality. The work was started on the promised day and took as long as had been projected for the work. The two landscapers who worked with Kevin, Mark and Michael were courteous, efficient and worked very hard indeed. I was consulted at each stage. I left to go on holiday before the work was completed and I was absolutely delighted with the result when I returned. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Hortus, whose work was high quality and cost effective. Professor Gill Baynes "
