We have found Brian extremely helpful and professional. He is extremely easy to talk to and initiated creative and interesting ideas whilst incorporating our own thoughts about what we wanted for the plot. All tasks were completed to a high standard. Brian gave valuable follow up advice following completion of the project. We would not hesitate to employ his services again and would definitely recommend him to others.

Having moved into a new house literally surrounded by soil, we were not quite sure where to start. Brian Merrick of XternalDesign came to see us and made us immediately feel comfortable and discussed with us to see what we could see our garden looking like – it was so nice to feel that our thoughts were totally taken on board, the whole conversation was actually not just an expert telling us what we should have, but Brian wanted to know what we felt we would like to see. Brian’s expertise has proven to be spot on, we have a garden in a new build that looks like it has been established for several years –the plants reflect the colours and sizes that we envisaged and for us it was also essential for it to be low maintenance. We would definitely recommend Brian to anyone who is looking for ‘more than’ a garden designer; Brian has real genuine passion and knowledge.

"Brian from XternalDesign has a unique talent. He has been able to combine the technical aspects of a garden designer with the knowledge of an horticulturist which has resulted in a stunning transformation.He has taken the conception of the design and managed to put this concept into practice. He has advised on planting scheme, the choice of stone and design of the patio. I am truly happy and pleased with the result and have no hesitation in recommending him. It has been a delight to have received such a professional and good quality service from Brian Merrick and I wish him continued success. I would engage Brian in the future should I need any further garden requirements. "

"Dear Brian, we are writing to say thank you for your work of the garden regarding our house in Much Wenlock. We are more than pleased with the final outcome and would thoroughly recommend your services to others who are interested in redesigning or creating a new garden. Why are we so pleased? Firstly we found your proposed design to be highly practical yet also creative resulting in a wonderfully colourful and visually satisfying garden that is easy to maintain. Secondly we really liked the way you patiently discussed and negotiated changes to the design so we felt we had an input at all times to the project. Finally we have been really pleased with your aftercare service in making sure that all the plants and hard landscaping have been successfully planted and bedded in."
