When we moved into our home the back garden had been left to overgrow and was not much of a usable space. We wanted to have it landscaped to make it both useable but also enhance the value of the property be low maintenance and have good design. We had 5 or so companies out to give us a quote and there was only 1 that gave us the confidence that the design would be spot on look great and be functional. RIO Landscapes provided a detailed CGI of what the design would look like where the other companies didn’t. Russ was excellent in breaking down the phases of the build and was very good in communicating. He brought some great ideas to the table including the sunken hot tub which we’ve loved using! I would recommend anyone that is looking for great design and function garden space to contact RIO Landscapes.

Visitors are driving straight past our new Rio landscaped drive! From the worst frontage in the street to by far the best! Wonderful finish, friendly & professional service. Can’t recommend Russ and his team enough.

We used Rio Landscapes Ltd to design and carry out the development of our garden as before it was just a plain and boring garden, which we did not enjoy looking at.
We told Russell what we wanted, a simple and maintenance free garden with different levels as our garden sloped and we left it to him to design. A few weeks later Russell sent us some 3D pictures and a design and we were blown away with the detail, the pictures and design, after a few minor adjustments after discussing the project with Russell and deciding to put a few extra elements into the garden we went ahead and asked Rio Landscapes to do the work. From the start to the finish the quality of the work and the manor it was carried out was superb and professional and we could not fault them in any way. The work was carried out to an excellent level and we are over whelmed with the end result. We cannot thank them enough as all of us love the garden now and cannot wait until the summer.

Following the installation of the artificial grass over the summer holidays last year I would like to say how pleased we are with the work that you have done. The work has transformed the area for the school and the children were delighted with their new play area. They take a great deal of pleasure from using the grass and it has allowed us to use a part of the grounds that we were not able to do whilst it was ‘real’ grass.

I would also like to thank you for doing the work so efficiently and with minimal disruption to the school. You were very considerate to the needs of the school and kept us informed at all times.

Thanks again and we look forward to working with you in the future.

We have recently opened two new Children’s Nurseries in very different locations, one within a rural landscape with an established garden whilst the other a refurbishment of and existing library and car park in a residential setting. Having known Russ and his work for several years we approached Rio Landscapes to use their knowledge of education and child friendly settings to fully utilise each space. Despite both sites being quite different, the brief in terms of usage was similar; we really liked Russ’s enthusiasm to make the most of the spaces whilst not overcrowding them with features and allowing a natural flow between and within obvious functional spaces. At our Bentley Manor site, Russ’s design captured the scale of the gardens, Russ’s knowledge of best practice and new pedagogies in early years childcare assisted us with our choices and I think he really enjoyed the challenge. At our Shirley site, Russ managed to fit an a lot into a relatively small space, covering all of our outdoor space needs as well as making the approach to the nursery look modern, professional and tidy. I would recommend Russ for his thoughtful approach and attention to detail.
