“James and his team have maintained our garden for many years as well as updating our hard landscaping and the redesign of our pool gardens and we cannot speak highly enough of them. We have a Peter Fudge designed garden with many hedges and garden beds that require weekly maintenance and the team are always polite, efficient and very tidy. At each visit they consult with us and advise of the maintenance to be done and are more than happy to help us out with other aspects of the garden and the pool such as lighting and design. We wouldn't trust our garden to anyone else.”

“We have been clients of James Bell and his team from the beginning of James Bell Gardens and have always appreciated the professionalism and commitment that James brings to his work. As a trained horticulturist, James brings this expertise to bear on his business. He has a good eye for design and he is very thoughtful and considered. He cares about his work and is focused on what will work best for the house and garden. We also value his ethical approach to his work. He is passionate about delivering the highest standard of service which is why he has so much loyalty and respect from his clients and his team. Our most recent compliment for James is that he is working with the next generation as he is designing gardens for our son and daughter's new homes.”

“When James first started at our place 15 years ago the back yard was just dirt, so he created the gardens and has nurtured them ever since. We extended the block and this required extra paving and landscaping. Over the years with trees growing up and shade areas changing he has adapted the garden to suit these changing conditions. I totally trust what they do. James and his team come each fortnight, they are a part of the place and I couldn't imagine them not being here. They are very experienced and it has been a joy to see the business grow.”

“We have a complex of 23 townhouses which is a 'one of a kind' property – the development category required the Premier's approval and on construction it won architectural awards. James and his team look after the extensive common property landscaped gardens, comprising lawns, mature shrubs and trees, both within the complex and on two street frontages. They have definitely raised the standard of our gardens in a well thought out plan of hedging, replanting and pruning, together with seasonal feeding, mulching and spraying. James's horticultural knowledge is a real asset. He is an expert in his field and we get a lot of favourable comments from visitors. James also controls the garden irrigation system and besides regulating watering cycles and running repairs, he has had to adjust to lower water pressure (probably resulting from high-rise developments in the neighbourhood) by changing pop-up sprinklers in the lawns. Owners take a keen interest in the gardens, recognising that their presentation enhances the appearance of the complex as well as the value of the property. James is skilled at balancing individual owners' requests within the overall plan and budget.”

“Our relationship with James began 15 years ago when he came in to repair and modify our existing garden and retaining walls. Since then we have utilised the services of James Bell Gardens to keep our garden looking its best. Over the years, James has overseen the new planting and modifications to the garden landscape. With my wife and I working full time we don't find ourselves in the garden too often, however when we do have the chance to spend some time there, we are able to still get the feeling of being productive as the task at hand is no longer overwhelming. James and his team do the tough, creative and skilled work. At times, if I am not able to do the lawns, James and his team are always ready to step in to keep things under control while I am away. It goes without saying that we are very happy with their work. Another good indicator of the quality work is that many visitors to our home often compliment the condition of our garden. Over the years we have recommended James and his team to a number of people. Even our neighbours are now using James' team.”
