A garden wall was extended at the front of a listed cottage in Wembury to act as a flood defence. The work was done speedily and professionally and the finished product is exemplary. It fits perfectly with the existing frontage and the finished product is a vast improvement on what was there before.

The Flood defence wall.

Stops the spray from passing vehicles sending volumes of water into this old cottage.
The Road outside is now higher than the door threshold, having been built up over many years, with layers of tar-macadam. Being so much lower, water pooled in the immediate threshold area, and whilst a 6" 150 mm drainpipe took the excess into a a 9" land drain and then down through the back garden to a stream running across the bottom of the garden.

Dear Mr Smith,

My wife and I are so pleased with the transformation executed by yourself. It was planned thoughtfully, implementing some of our suggestions and expertly carried out in such a fastidious manner. This has led to a very pleasant area of landscaping with the shrubs, more developed, adding colour to the scene.
Thank you very much and we would fully recommend anyone to your services and ideas.

Yours sincerely

D. A.Goddard-Smith

Graham Smith -Derna Landscapes and Design

Graham undertook the landscaping of our garden in February and March of this year (24th March 1997) It has been carried out to an extremely high standard and we are very pleased with the result.

Although we already had a design drawn up it was necessary to adapt this so Graham also undertook design work to the garden.

We found Graham to be meticulous and detailed going to great lengths to ensure the correct choices were made . He introduced a drainage system, created an inspection chamber for the drains and tidied up the piping on the side of the house....

Dear graham,

I have been meaning to write to you for some time to congratulate you on the splendid conversion that you accomplished on our existing driveway and courtyard. We valued your advice as to design and use of materials such as CLIFTON and CHARTRES setts.We were also impressed with the quality of your workmanship and the cheerful way that you and BRIAN set about your work. We were able to see the concept develop before our eyes and had the comfort of knowing that you were meticulous to the foundations and levels.

Both my wife and I have no hesitation of recommending the quality of your workmanship to anyone. For the record we enclose a number of photographs of the finished job.


With every good wishes for your future success

Dear Graham
Enclosed, as agreed, your final payment. I would like to take this opportunity to thank
you for the wonderful job you have done for us - as you put it, bringing our dreams to
reality. It has been a pleasure to have you working for us - I say this with particular
feeling having had recent experience of dealings with a number of contractors who
seemed very well versed in the Builders Book of Excuses'
From our point of view the fact that you arrived on day one and worked all day every day until the job was completed, without us having once to chase you to find out where you were or why you were not doing what you had said you would do, was a totally novel experience.
If you would like to use this letter, and the photographs
you took, in your portfolio, please
feel free to do so. l would also be happy to give a verbal
or written reference for
prospective clients who might wish one.
Kind regards
Yours sincerely

The Outdoor Fireplace was a first for me. and is still in regular use today. Like most of my work this was from a recommendation from Hilary and Martyn, for whom we have carried out quite a few challenging projects, projects that made one think outside the box, requiring engineering skills, and a can do approach..

Dear Graham,
I felt I had to write a letter for your file to express our appreciation and delight with the recent landscaping project you completed on our front garden.
Although we were not quite sure what to expect at the outset of the project, we quickly realised that we had employed the right people when we saw the daily transformation of what had been an eyesore, to a beautiful eye-catching rockery.
Your team and yourself worked extremely hard to complete the project in such a short space of time, and we were most impressed by your attention to even the smallest detail in creating such high quality work.
Now we have begun to plant the area (over 40 plants went in the day after you finished it is looking even more impressive, and we enjoy the admiring
glances we receive from passers by.
Once again our thanks go to you and your team, and should you want to send any prospective customers out to see an example of your work, we would welcome the opportunity to show it off


Yours sincerely
