“As a busy letting agency in Cheltenham we need professional, quality work carried out at a competitive price – Kirsty, Marc and the team have always provided this ! Their work is always done to a good standard and their charges are reasonable. From weekly gardening maintenance to larger “top-to-tail” makeovers, these are the guys (and gals) to use!”
Jon Cooper, Martin & Co Lettings
“Kirsty and her team carried out extensive, much needed work to our front and rear gardens including new patio, fencing, wall building etc. Matt, Arthur and Callum were cheerful, courteous and hard working and it was a pleasure seeing them every day. It was estimated that the work would take 5 – 6 weeks and they were spot on with completion. All the work was carried out to a high standard and we would not hesitate to use their services again and to recommend them to our friends and family.”
Jim & Janet Attwooll, Gloucester
“We are really pleased that we used George-Stone Gardens to transform our tired, uneven rectangular patio into a lovely spacious area for relaxing and enjoying the garden, al fresco dining and big enough for outdoor table tennis. Kirsty and her team interpreted our wishes perfectly and have achieved exactly what we hoped for. The stone is particularly attractive and appropriate and the curved edging looks great against the borders and lawn. A big thank you to the team who worked professionally in every way throughout. We can certainly recommend them for a quality result.”
Francis Family, Leckhampton
“Kirsty and her team have done a fantastic job in our garden – laying a new patio, path and new wall of sleepers. It’s only when you see how a job is done properly that you realise how poor the work was before! They were very thorough and very tidy. They kept to schedule and came back to finish off a couple of things as well. Highly recommend them.”
Sue Wassell, Charlton Kings
“An excellent service provided by a very professional group. We are so pleased with the results.”
Ruairidh Jackson, Prestbury
“George-Stone helped us design a transformational landscape scheme for our rear garden which included an eye catching water feature, large patio, trees and lighting. Andy and his hardy team battled through the winter months and delivered a high quality result on time. They are a good team to work with and I’m happy to recommend their services.”
Nirav Sheth, Cotswold Grange Hotel, Pittville
“George-Stone Gardens are a highly professional and very well organised team who I would willingly recommend to others. I had plans created by a garden designer and George-Stone came in and completed the landscaping work brilliantly. The team were really friendly and knowledgeable, their standards of work are very high and the attention to detail impressive. Thanks to them my garden now looks great!”
Rachel Williams, Cheltenham
“Greatly enhancing the approach to Timbercombe Gate, George-Stone recently transformed a neglected piece of ground outside the development into a stylish, contemporary, low maintenance garden and in the process proved themselves to be not only a highly capable, reliable and cost-effective resource, but also a very accommodating company to work with.
We look forward to welcoming Marc and his team back on-site again during the coming year, to keep our communal areas in shape as the new planting becomes established.”
Roger Ward, Charlton Kings
“Kirsty and her team rescued our garden following extensive building renovations. We are so pleased with the result that we hope to use their services again in the spring. They were all highly professional, courteous and above all willing to listen. We would thoroughly recommend them to anyone, no matter how large or small their garden.”
D. Flack, Fairview
“A very large thank you to Kirsty and her team for the amazing job in redesigning our back garden. We wanted a low maintenance garden and they managed to achieve that for us. With your very caring staff, Marc and Matt, continuing to maintain it on a regular basis, we’re sure the garden will always look its best. Finally, Customer Service has been second to none and we would not hesitate to recommend them. Thank you!”
Mr & Mrs Cheatham, Pittville
“At he start of August 2017 we downsized to a lovely garden flat in Cheltenham. Although the garden was small it was looking very bedraggled and required too much work to maintain it. Having maintained a large garden for over three decades we wanted a garden that was easy to maintain, was tranquil and meditative. We spoke to Kirsty at George-Stone Gardens and together with Sue Oscroft we came up with a design which met our needs. We wanted a largely green and white planting scheme with pretty and ‘easy to rake’ gravel to create a Zen environment. We wanted bamboos to create a ‘wispy effect’ in the breeze, a delicate water feature and place for a large Buddha rupa or plaque. The existing lawn was very poor and we wanted a nice paved area which would blend all the elements together.
Kirsty and her team arrived in December, unfortunately in a particularly wet period, but battled the elements and removed a lot of soil and hardcore to leave a ‘blank canvas’ for the redevelopment. Thankfully they worked tidily and kept other residents informed so there were no problems in this regard.
Throughout the development we discussed problems, solutions and ongoing changes and the team doing the work was very helpful (I kept them well fortified with tea and biscuits). We are very pleased with the final product and the lighting at night enhances the lovely tranquil feel of the garden. Well done to all!”
Ian & Pawan Donaldson, Pittville
“We are delighted with our raised bed which you installed for us last week. We greatly appreciate the skill and the care of your staff – a great team. Thank-you all!
John & Jenny Mead, Pittville
“Kirsty and her team did a fantastic job on re-landscaping our back garden. The quality of the dry-stone walling in particular is amazing and admired by everyone visiting. The team were extremely polite and personable and very hardworking. I am planning on using George-Stone again next year to tackle the front garden.”
Ruth Harmsworth, Andoversford
“Very good work by Marc and Matt. The complete clearance of an overgrown garden followed by the building of raised beds has given me a fresh start. Hard workers and very pleasant company.”
Gill Delaney, Prestbury
“We were thrilled with the landscaping that George-Stone Gardens did for us – their attention to detail is exceptional and their ability to adapt and change design when we brought in additional features was never a problem. The team is friendly, professional and a pleasure to have around. We have since added other elements to our garden using their service as well as continue to use them for maintenance simply because we love what they do! Would definitely recommend them!”
S. Holmes, Stoke Orchard
“George-Stone Gardens recently landscaped the back garden of our cottage following a plan prepared by someone who works regularly with them. We were very happy with the quotation given and were confident that they would do a good job for us. We were not disappointed and are delighted with the result. The whole experience was stress-free; the staff were all very pleasant and hard working and used their initiative and creativity to produce a garden which really enhances the cottage and will make the job of keeping the garden neat and tidy much easier and more enjoyable. We have also since used their maintenance service for a good tidy up of the front garden – well worth the cost which was very reasonable. We will definitely use them again and would recommend them without hesitation.”
R & M Hartley, Charlton Kings
“The team at George-Stone recently landscaped our rear garden. They are courteous and professional and consulted me at every step of the project, overcame problems with optimism and completed the work to a high standard of quality and finish.”
James, Charlton Kings
“In January 2016 I decided my rear garden needed a makeover. I had visits from three or four garden firms but that from George-Stone Gardens was the most helpful and professional. Kirsty was very good at understanding what I wanted and drawing up a plan. There was a subsequent very helpful visit from Jane to discuss plants.
The work on the garden was carried out by Kirsty and her Team in two stages in May and June. The lawn that was in a poor state was brought back to life. The new flower beds, and patio and paths transformed the garden, along with the wide variety of plants that were put in.
I would have no hesitation in recommending you.”
Hugh Worsfold, Evesham
“George-Stone Gardens have provided us with a reliable lawn maintenance service over the past year and have also carried out other one-off gardening jobs on request. They are good about keeping in contact so we always know when to expect them. We look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.”
“A highly professional job of trimming a box hedge. Sounds straightforward, but other companies had made a mess of it. The George-Stone team inspired confidence from the start, and the price was competitive. Will be coming back to them for other work. A great job!”
Michael Harriss, Warden Hill
“A huge thank-you to Kirsty and her team for our fantastic garden. They had to cope with atrocious weather conditions coupled with heavy clay. Their dedication and capacity for hard back breaking work was admirable. The attention to detail and the craftsmanship of the team has been admired by everyone who has seen it. We are looking forward to having you back to landscape the front garden for us.”
Ron & Gill, Gloucester
“Kirsty and her team took a very tired looking piece of garden and transformed it into something quite amazing. Our neighbours commented that it looks like it belongs in Home & Garden magazine! We absolutely love the composite decking – it is never slippy even when wet, and a quick wash down and it looks like new again. George-Stone are a very professional company and we will definitely use them again.”
Andy & Vanessa, Andoversford, Cheltenham
“A fabulous result brought about by a fabulous team! From the planning to the realisation of the final effect, Kirsty and her team were communicative and always willing to help. It was great to see a boring area of sloping grass transformed into a multi tiered garden complete with patio and fully planted. Many thanks.”
Jeremy English, Cheltenham
“Roger and his colleague carried out the annual clean-up of leaves in our woodland garden a few weeks ago, which is a huge job. As always the work was carried out efficiently & professionally. We use George-Stone on a regular basis with Roger being our “man of choice” due to his exceptional knowledge & experience. Highly recommended.”
Bruce Fraser, Cheltenham
“A new house and challenging garden on a slope – no problem for George-Stone. We have enjoyed our new level garden patio so much this summer. Have recommended Kirsty and team to all our new neighbours. Best wishes for continued success!!”
Roy Loudon, Winchcombe
“Kirsty and her team have helped transform our garden into something better than I planned. All the work has been done to a very high standard and was flexible enough to adapt where needed as the process went on. We were not in a hurry and I think this was of benefit in terms of the outcome as you cannot have quality, quickness and a low price all at the same time. I thoroughly recommend George-Stone Gardens.”
Stuart Galey, Cleeve Hill
“Wow! We got home to a lovely garden on Wednesday. We are both so pleased with the end result which is way beyond expectations, both in appearance and the quality of a job superbly done. We can’t thank you all enough and it was nice having such a lovely team around the house. Many thanks again: I will certainly be singing your praises from my rooftop.”
Philip Davies, Winchcombe
“A highly professional service all-round! The garden work was completed to a very high standard, to budget and on time. George-Stone gardeners worked with enthusiasm, dedication and tenacity, accomplishing far more per day than one would have thought possible. They put previous gardeners we have used to shame. Pricing was fair too, and utilised a great online quote system that provided clarity. They also came up with good design ideas. We will definitely use them again!”
Vince & Charlotte, Charlton Kings
“We are delighted with the changes to our garden. The work was carried out in a professional and courteous way to a high standard. This care and attention to detail led to an impressive outcome giving us a productive space to grow fruit and vegetables as well as a place to relax and enjoy it. The transformation has rekindled an interest in gardening and we are looking forward to enjoying many hours outside.”
Charlotte Jamieson, Cheltenham
“Contacting George-Stone Gardens was the best telephone call I ever made. Major garden maintenance was needed and Roger came along, he now comes twice a year. His work is perfect and as a Plantsman there is nothing he does not know. Three cheers for George-Stone Gardens.”
Beryl Newman, Cheltenham
“We have used Kirsty and her team for two projects so far and will certainly be using them again. Our overgrown garden required “jungle clearance” followed by new fencing and hedging and was completed to a high standard by a professional, knowledgable and friendly team. The result is a great framework for our new garden to take shape. “
Chris Musselwhite, Southam
“I have known Kirsty and her team for years now, as well as providing an excellent maintenance service they installed a patio for me in my old house and recently they have just completely redone the front and back gardens in my new home. They patiently helped me with planning out my new garden and giving me advice where needed. Watching it transform as the design took shape was an exciting journey and the end result is perfect – thank-you!”
Irene Gardner, Gloucester
“Having used George-Stone Gardens previously, we knew that the standard of work was high and therefore they were the natural choice when we undertook a house renovation project in 2013. The garden work included decommissioning and infill of a large pond, laying of a large new patio, replacement of old coping stones as well as construction of a pergola and installation and planting of new borders. All the work was carried out to a high standard and we are delighted with the end result. As well as carrying out heavy construction work, they also took care of all the planting with a high level of knowledge and skill. We would certainly use George-Stone Gardens for future projects and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.”
Mike Crisp, Charlton Kings
‘What a great surprise to see how well the work was carried out. I found this a really helpful service, and the standard of care and professionalism was exemplary. I will be asking you back for more work. Thats for sure.’
R. Marshall, St Marks
‘We had a mature garden that had been laid out many years ago. The trees were overgrown and the garden generally needed a rebuild. Kirsty and the team took us through all the design stages and helped us decide on styles etc before undertaking a massive build including a patio that can probably be seen from space! We had awful weather and the garden looked like the Somme at times but the guys braved it all and just kept going. We now have a beautiful garden, planted and blooming which will grow with us over the next few years during which time we are sure that we will call upon Kirsty and crew again – they really are that helpful. Thanks guys, great job and great results.’
Martin & Hilary, Evesham
‘George-Stone has proved a very willing and accommodating garden service. They have always been willing to give advice on planting, dig over a bed for the winter, trim hedges for the autumn maintenance and help plant in difficult ground. I intend to continue to use them for my annual gardening maintenance needs with confidence.’
Sarah Lyon, The Park
‘All work completed by Roger was very thorough and efficient. Very pleased with the clearance job.’
‘Michael and I would like to thank Kirsty and Roger for making our little garden look so pretty. We really appreciate the time and effort you put into thinking about it and you have achieved just what we had in mind. Thanks too for coming round to console us when we thought we had lost our two beautiful trees in the front. I know it was our fault but you were quite right TLC and water were all that were need to put them back into their former glory! We look forward to seeing you both again in the spring.’
Michael & Patricia MacFarlane
“After researching numerous landscaping companies we chose George-Stone to give our garden a makeover. What a good decision that proved to be. Kirsty and the team were professional and hard working from the word go and managed to meet all our requirements. This included setting up a wedding list website for us so we could offset costs via our wedding contributions. The garden has been totally transformed and now looks fantastic.”
‘After reviewing our requirements George-Stone Gardens have grasped the needs of my clients by producing a well designed garden with thoughtful planting to enhance the senses of my client group. We really appreciate the weekly maintenance, which is delivered sensitively ensuring aroma and colour continue throughout the year. I am more than pleased to continue the relationship with this company and would not hesitate to recommend George-Stone Gardens.
Julia Saunders, Queensbridge Care Limited
‘Many thanks. I found this a really helpful service, and the standard of care and professionalism was exemplary. I will be asking you back for more work later in the New Year.”
Mr M.Abrahams, Charlton Kings.
‘George-Stone Gardens were brilliant. We asked them to do a bit of work on our much neglected front garden, and completely overhaul the back space ready for a new garden office to be installed. They were professional, reliable and friendly at all times and added bits in or took bits out at short notice as the job progressed. The fence really looks amazing, as do the new sleeper planters. Thanks for all your hard work guys, I love my garden again!’
Nicky Williams, Hatherley
“We regularly use George-Stone Gardens as they always do a first rate job, ensuring all areas of our garden are left extremely well presented – realistic pricing too.”
Seb Stanley, Charlton Kings
‘Very professional and reliable. Reasonable price. Excellent job done and very pleased at the result.’
Mike Crisp, Pittville
‘It was with some trepidation that I succumbed to my wife’s suggestion to get our garden landscaped. I knew I would never have the time, but I felt nervous as you can never guarantee the quality of the work. Also, I had always completed all my garden ‘design’ work myself and so knew I would be a tough task master to please.
I should not have worried. The garden that George-Stone have designed and created looks fabulous. They worked with us to hit our budget. The quality of the design, and attention to detail cannot be faulted. Michael and Arthur were great. Zero hassle and real perfectionists (ie, bases to depth, no dry mixes, great materials used etc).
I can honestly look at our garden and say ‘I can’t fault it’. Now looking forward to summer to sit out there with a glass of wine. We are already contemplating getting the front done. I have no problem recommending them to anybody. Very happy with what Kirsty and team have created.’
Regards Mr and Mrs Baillie, Tewkesbury, Dec 2011
‘George-Stone Gardens transformed a wild, unmanageable area into a low maintenance, perfect setting for relaxing and enjoying the new garden. Kirsty and her team are totally reliable, hard-working and expert at translating clients needs into reality. The two projects were started and finished on time, without fuss and left clean and tidy each evening.
I have no hesitation in recommending George-Stone Gardens. ‘
N.P.Hawkes, Gloucester, Sept 2011
George-Stone were professional from the beginning, both in their assessment of the job and the execution of it. They were absolutely reliable and worked with us on the design, making suggestions where needed, and we were lucky enough to have a real expert (Michael) to do the job. We are delighted with the finished result.
L. Nixon, Cheltenham, Oct 2011
Kirsty and her team gave an excellent service redesigning our garden. It looks wonderful.
We would highly recommend this company & we will definitely use them again.
Maggie Johnston, Bishops Cleeve, Jan 2011

J. Martin, Gloucester, Sept 2010
