"Just wanted to congratulate you on the job you did on next doors front garden. It looks great. That's not to say ours isn't good which it is. Don't be a stranger and not the big tub at the back needs doing. Once again thanks and see you soon"

"I just wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you so much for the work you and your team did to install our garden deck.  The end result is fantastic and throughout we were so impressed with the attention to detail that the team applied.  Also your advice during the whole process was great, and really helped us with the finishing touches, we wouldn’t hesitate to use your company again and to recommend you to any of our friends.  Thanks again"

"Once again JMS Designs has completed an amazing transformation in our garden. An overgrown and somewhat depressing patio area has been turned into a delightful space. The work was completed efficiently and with minimum disruption and Mr Slaughter and his team worked cheerfully through all weathers in January. The only problem we had was in deciding which of Mr Slaughter’s stunning designs to choose.

JMS also organised some vital tree surgery for us, which involved the felling of one large cedar and severely pollarding an overgrown weeping willow. This work was also done quickly and efficiently, with all resulting debris removed. We would not hesitate to recommend their services."

"Once again we have to thank JMS Designs - this time on the completion of our patio area. Beautifully designed and well constructed, with the attention to detail that turns a good job into an outstanding one. Joseph and his team dealt admirably with our exacting requirements and several unforeseen problems which arose along the way. They were a pleasure to have on site throughout the works. We look forward to welcoming them back for yet further works in the near future."

"We were delighted with the results of JMS's redesign of our front garden 
and drive, commissioned to allow off road parking for a second car. What stood out was the intelligent design proposed ,with sensible suggestions about how our original - rather basic - ideas could be built on. During the work, we were impressed with the standard of work (they really did get all the old hedge roots out), working practices (careful use of machinery) and the tidy way in which the site was left each night. They are great people to have around too - thoughtful about allowing for necessities such as milk and post deliveries and the continuing need of the house occupants and their neighbours to come and go whilst work is in progress.

The results are superb and our neighbours are as enthusiastic about it as we are."

"Many thanks once again to your entire team, but especially to yourself, for the wonderful transformation of a previously horrid bit of our garden. We are really pleased with the result - the novelty of admiring it hasn't worn off yet!

We now look forward to the transformation of the patio!"

"We are very pleased to be able to provide a testimonial for Mr Slaughter and his company JMS Designs Ltd.

We were faced with filling in a large and decrepit swimming pool (approximately 10m x 5m x 2m deep at the deepest point) – a job we had been putting off as we were dreading the mess and upheaval we thought it would involve. In the event, thanks to Mr Slaughter and his team, we need not have worried! Having sought quotations from 3 different sources, the one from JMS Designs came in as the lowest, but we were so impressed by the diligence and obvious expertise of Mr Slaughter while on site and in preparing the quotation that we accepted without hesitation.

The work was completed on schedule with the minimum of mess, fuss and bother. The team worked efficiently and hard, and were a pleasure to have on site. Within days, the dangerous eyesore in our garden was transformed into a beautifully smooth area of turfed lawn, complete with a new self-contained water feature, which we had chosen to suit the area with the help of Mr Slaughter.

The whole project has been such a success that we are now saying “why on earth didn’t we do it ages ago?” We have no hesitation in recommending Mr Slaughter and his team. In fact, we are now embarking on other projects in the garden which we will be handing over to him without the slightest qualm."

"Its pleasing to find an operation that still cares about 'quality', I could not have wished for better, we were constantly asked if we were happy with the work and its progress. Joseph seemed to genuinely care about how we felt as customers, having dealt with a number of landscaping firms, we found the service to be superior. He obviously loves what he does and it shows in the end product and the finishing touches make all the difference"

The Bradshaws - Patio Design & Construction - Northampton

Very good design with useful input at the early stages of planning and assistance with budgeting. Timber decking and block paved area excellent

"Got a sun awning installed by JMS designs last year just before summer came as our garden gets full sun all day and it can be uncomfortable to sit out there. Although my husband was dubious about getting one installed I can honestly say he is now converted, we both can sit outside and enjoy our garden without the full glare of the sun on us. Even the dog comes and sits with us now, and he enjoys his sunbathing! The service we received pre and post installation couldn't have been better, full instruction gave on usage and care and any niggles we just had to ring and they had an answer for us in no time. Will be recommending the awning and JMS to friends and family."

"Dear Joseph, Just a few short lines to thank you very much indeed for the work you’ve done in our garden. We had realized for some time that we did not have the expertise to create the type of garden we needed to suit our lifestyle. Despite being willing gardeners, we had little idea about garden design and planting and it was clear we would need professional help and know how to plan and create the successful practical garden we wanted.We are pleased to say you have provided that expertise and we are delighted with the results. You’ve provided a specialized knowledge of horticulture, and given us a heap of ideas that we had been lacking previously. The garden looks terrific and we are very happy with the results. Should you wish to refer anyone to us we would be delighted to show them your work."

Just a quick note to say how pleased we are with our new back garden. Following on from the good design ideas, Joseph Slaughter, and team created just what we wanted a larger patio area but with different features on several levels. Many thanks again"
