Mr and Mrs O, Llangollen
From the moment we approached Shaun Greetham (Unique Landscapes) at Shrewsbury Flower Show to the completion of our amazing garden the experience has been nothing but smooth, professional and personal. Shaun understood immediately our hopes and expectations. Not only did he understand how we would use and benefit from our garden but also related it to the unusual and exceptional landscape we are surrounded by. Our garden, though having only been in place for less than 6 months, blends in seamlessly with our house which was built in the 1800's.
Initially we were keen to utilise our own contractor to bring Shaun's design to life, however on reflection, we are the first to admit that we were grateful to have followed Shaun's advice and use his team. They were dedicated, even walking the 1 mile from the main road to the property during the extreme winter we endured and worked in some horrendous conditions.
Both Shaun and his team have a remarkable eye for detail. How many men think about the trouble high heels might cause on steps and paving, creating a thoughtful and workable solution to the problem.
We have had numerous projects on our property over the years and our garden and working with Shaun has been the highlight.
Dr G Davies OBE DL FIAgrE Shropshire
Thank you for creating such a wonderful garden for us. It is beyond description. You are a very talented garden designer and your project management throughout has been first class. Both Sharon and I are so pleased we met you. Again, a very big thank you to you and your team.
Mr S., Coreley, Shropshire
We want to thank you very much for all that you did here in our garden to make such an uncertainty turn into a reality. From the start it was obvious that we were talking to a professional firm with dedication and commitment to their work and the future. Your ability to work without needing our daily attenion or prescence, yet involve us whenever you or we felt it prudent, is a rare experience nowadays. It was very re-assuring for us. We only had a vague idea of the requirements that we felt were necessary for our garden, drive and patio situation, yet the design that you created has produced all that we could have wished for. You provided us with excellent references and gardens to see and were very patient during our deliberations over the selection of the stone we wanted. We were continually impressed with the quality and effort of detail that you put into your work and the materials that you chose. Thank you for the planting plan, services plan and design plan that you supplied within the contract and how you coped with some of our "quirky add-ons". We would be pleased to show our garden to anyone whom you might wish to refer. Thank you very, very much.

We found Unique Landscapes by accident, when we saw their sign outside a property a few miles from us. Inviting them to discuss our garden design challenges with us, we knew immediately that they would not let us down. The design they came up with was exactly right for our requirements and needed nothing more than a few tweaks. Since then, we have called Unique Landscapes in on two more occasions for specific additions, and what Shaun came up with was bold, innovative, exciting, very special and certainly unique. It was a lucky chance when we saw their sign that day! The only other comment we can add to that is that their after-sales service is impeccable and, no matter how long ago work was done, we are always treated as if we are the most important customers they have ever had – and I am sure that applies to everyone they deal with.
Mr and Mrs H., Luston, Herefordshire
To anyone considering a garden makeover we highly recommend the services of Unique Landscapes. We experienced professionalism from our first exploratory meeting right through to the completion of our project. This is not just a hard landscaping service, but a complete bespoke garden solution individually tailored down to the smallest detail coupled with an encyclopedic knowledge of the plant world. Our project proved to be a major enhancement to our home and money well spent.
It doesn’t get better than this!
Mr and Mrs M, Bridstow, Ross-on-Wye
Our garden had been unloved for a long time and major building work to the house had added to the challenge. Shaun worked with us to create an innovative and unique (sorry!) design including the brilliant idea of framing the patio with what looked like tumbled down old walls which looked like a continuation of our house. Over the course of the summer his team completed the construction with huge attention to detail but also to timescale and budget. Nothing was too much trouble and we were absolutely delighted with the finished product. The garden has matured over the past few years and provided a wonderful backdrop to our daughter’s recent wedding. We would have no hesitation in recommending Unique Landscapes.
Mr and Mrs D., Herefordshire
Shaun and Sean duly arrived during a very cold March 2007 to tackle the "sloping field" which was our back garden. Shaun had prepared a plan of action and a digger was soon hard at work clearing everything. We wondered if it would ever look like a garden but bit by bit a wonderful terraced area began to emerge. There would have been no way that we could ever have tackled such a task ourselves. Three and a bit weeks later the plants were in ,lawn laid and all the mess cleared away.
We now have a lovely usable garden which has certainly increased the value of our house. I silently thank Shaun everytime i hang out washing and my feet stay nice and dry on my lovely path and patio !
Mr and Mrs B, Pontesbury
Following an unsatisfactory experience with another landscape company we turned to Unique Landscapes. Shaun was able to produce a design to the concept we wanted and to a satisfactory budget. Despite the horrendous winter conditions the project was completed on budget and in the working days planned. Working with Shaun and Milo was a delight and when the work was finished we felt we had lost members of the family. As for the result we can only say it exceeded expectations by some margin. We have a stunning garden, much admired, and it still has to mature fully!
Mrs T, Richards Castle, Shropshire
I just have to thank you once again for your transformation of my garden. I was looking at ‘before’ photos recently and my front and back gardens look like totally different spaces now.
The planting has matured now and the back garden looks as if it has been there for ever despite the radical change to the structure and, as I wanted, I have a morning coffee place, a lunch area and a wonderful table for evening drinks watching the sunset!
From being a very ordinary patch, I now love my front garden with its archway and curves and it is a joy to walk through.
You made all the work run smoothly and with very little disruption, you were bang on budget and schedule and I had total confidence in you.
Thank you once again.
Miss C., Ludlow, Shropshire
I was very impressed by Unique Landscapes. They were professional in every respect, from the quality of their work and their attention to detail to their consideration and helpfulness. Everything was carefully planned and organised. They started and finished the job when they said they would, working hard all day every day in between. I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who wants a lovely garden, skilfully constructed by considerate, trustworthy people who have been a pleasure to deal with throughout.
I'd like to thank Unique Landscapes for constructing my new terraced back garden, transforming a very unsatisfactory space into something really special. I'm delighted with it.
Mr & Mrs H, Shrewsbury Shropshire
We would like to thank Shaun of Unique Landscapes Ltd for the attentive professional service that he provided us from the initial concept design and completion of our wonderful contemporary courtyard, driveway & formal garden area complete with pathway and planting design.
The follow up service and maintenance programme provided by Shaun and his team has also helped immensely in developing and nurturing our young plants over the last 2 years into what is now fast becoming an established, colourful & fragrant garden that we all enjoy with friends & family over a glass of wine!! Weather permitting!!
As you are aware we have recommended a number of potential clients to you and will not hesitate in continuing to do so in the future.
P.S, we are happy to continue to offer any would-be clients of yours an inspection of the quality provided by your company, if so desired.
T. Adams, London
I had spent a few years deliberating over my ‘space’ in London. I wanted to keep the garden quite natural, with plenty of green, a patch for vegetables, a place to relax, and to hang up a hammock and enjoy a meal.
Someone I knew mentioned Shaun to me. I had a look on the website and felt reassured from his portfolio and speaking with him that he would be able to translate my head of ideas & wishes into a realistic plan, suiting both the size of the garden & fitting within my budget. Shaun was also very happy to come to London to do the work.
It wasn’t a big job, but the result was a complete transformation. From a rectangle of dirt to a garden created almost overnight that was full of plants, all of which worked perfectly with the trees & few plants already established. I could never have created this myself. Shaun had a great knowledge of the plants which would work and how to place them. That this could all be achieved was even more impressive since Shaun had only worked with photos.
Shaun was great to deal with, always very professional & I owe him a big thank you. My garden is real refuge from the city, a tranquil green space which I can relax in. Despite the work being done last year, whenever I look out at my garden it puts a smile on my face and I love pottering around in it, making small additions and showing it off to friends and family. That I can have such a natural space in London is a real joy..
Mr B., Shrewsbury
I contacted Shaun early in 2014, we planned to covert a tarmac walled car park into a town garden.
Shaun was very helpful indeed producing a scaled drawing and with great imagination produced a contemporary but stylish garden design for our Georgian townhouse.
Shaun's work was of a very high standard and reflected our requirements in all respects, I can thoroughly recommend his services.
Mr C., Shrewsbury
Here’s the easiest task of the day – writing a testimonial for Unique Landscapes!
I think you’d need to meet Shaun to appreciate why he’s at the top of his game. It’s clear from outset that he willing to listen and provide as much time as you need, for him to fully understand what you’re trying to achieve. From there on, it’s just a case of letting him use his knowledge, his creative skill, and his professionalism to design your dream garden or landscape.
I’ve used different tradesmen for years, and been caught out by shoddy time keeping, excuses, unexpected additions here and there, mess and unfinished work. Shaun, by names sake, has proven more than once that he’s completely unique and manages every aspect of the commissioned work to achieve 100% satisfaction.
One of Shaun’s’ biggest assets; finding the time to listen. An underestimated very important requirement on any project.
Mr C., Shropshire
We employed Shaun to make the most of our (rather small) garden.
The design he came up with was fantastic. We asked for low maintenance but otherwise had no really fixed ideas. Shaun came up with a design we would have never have come up with in a million years. He then brought in his team to execute the job and they were first class (we have used them since on unrelated projects).
Thoroughly professional at all times, the project was well managed and no stress. It came in on time and on budget.
Mr and Mrs P, Herefordshire
We would have no hesitation in recommending Unique Landscapes. Whilst we already had a garden design planned out, Shaun and his team carried out the work to a superb standard in a professional and friendly manner. No detail was too small to bother with and, as the garden took shape and we wanted small changes made, these were accommodated with ease. Thank you so much for our wonderful garden. It also seems that his baking is as good as his gardens (ask him about that one)!
