    "Paul and his team did an amazing job landscaping our new kindergarten. They were so flexible and responsive- we did change the design a few times! The team led by Rob, are such hard workers. The workmanship was outstanding. The site was always left so clean and tidy at the end of the day. We would highly recommend Paul and his team -they really do go over and above!"

    "Paul and his crew finished my garden last September and despite the awful weather and terrible drainage issues on my section did an awesome job. The guys that came were a great bunch, polite and hard working, and Paul is so easy to deal with. I had absolutely no worries about what they were doing ! I am thrilled with my garden, nothing was too hard for them. They did all the hard work and I have been enjoying doing all the planting. They were recommended to me and I would highly recommend them if you are thinking about getting any landscaping done."

    "Excellent job, great turn around without fuss!

    Everything communicated was followed through, on time.

    The project has been completed 1 month now and the trees and plants are already showing new growth and look amazing!

    The follow up has been most impressive, Virtuoso haven't just completed the project and walked away. They have been back to site and carried out unexpected maintenance which was greatly appreciated.

    We highly recommend Virtuoso Landscape Design for a great quality and hassle free project!"

    "Virtuoso designed and completed the garden in our new house last December.
    From the initial contact through to the completed garden they were an absolute pleasure to deal with.
    Nerys came and spent time listening to what we needed from the garden, things we really liked, ideas we had, the approximate budget we were working toward and got a feel for the garden itself. She was so lovely and we were immediately comfortable with her.
    The completed design was exactly what we had asked for - it was practical for our four littlies and our dogs but had an area designed for adults to enjoy and the attention to detail was wonderful.

    Paul chose the plants and trees, he explained each one to us and his love of his work really shone through.

    From the day the team arrived they were always on time, so professional and amazingly courteous and also very patient with our four littlies attempting to 'help' at any given opportunity.

    The weather was wet but the Virtuoso team always showed up and worked through regardless.

    Paul advised us what was happening each day and made us feel part of the project. Communication was excellent from start to finish.

    The finished piece is beyond lovely, everything we'd hoped for and more. Even though we have not had a great summer we are loving sitting by the outside fire on the stunning 8 x 8 deck Nerys designed and looking at our beautiful pleached olive trees.

    The aftercare from Virtuoso is also incredible, with Paul often just popping in to check everything is coming along as it should and advising us how to care for things.

    All in all, a wonderful professional team whose work just can't be faulted - we can't recommend Virtuoso highly enough.

    "Paul and his guys repaired my long gravel driveway.

    I received a very professional quote, detailing the work which would take place, and when the work would be carried out.

    They are a very professional and efficient team, arriving promptly and working diligently on the task. Paul arranged everything for the job ranging from gravel to machinery. I have to say they went over and above what I had requested, carrying out remedial work, and fixing problems with the driveway as they came across them. Paul is a highly skilled machinery operator, it's quite something to watch many square meters of raw material being transformed into a tightly compacted driveway.

    I now have a fantastic driveway which I can see will last a very long time. I would highly recommend Paul and his team, and will now be getting them back every couple of years to keep my drive looking like new. I'm a very happy customer.

    "Very disappointed with this company. Seemed professional and capable at first, but ended up providing poor construction and much delayed than originally promised. Had to fix their work using a different contractor.
    Landscaping design was unimaginative and old fashioned, even after we showed examples of what we liked. We basically had to come up with ideas ourselves, and still they were not implemented properly. Eventually we gave up.
    Overall, a waste of our money and time. When we complained that we received zero value from their services, they said that it's our fault. Outrageous.
    Paul Byford responded:
    "Hi Alonya, thank you for your comments above, and we are sorry that we could not meet your expectations on this occasion. We worked very hard to achieve your design brief, so much so that we made more changes than usual, which we did not charge for. To say that our design was a waste of money baffles me as you were going ahead to build the rear of your garden as per our design. Our design process ensures that our clients get good value for money, as we meet with them to present our preliminary design, listen to their feedback and make any changes before going to the final draw. I am sorry that on this occasion we could not meet your expectations with the front of your property, but we feel that our design solutions were both practical and creative. It is also a shame that you would use this form of media to vent your frustrations, when all we ever did was try to give you what you wanted. The rating from our other clients speak for themselves. We wish you well with the future and we hope you get your garden built as you want it. Best regards, Paul Byford, Director"

    "Paul and his guys have just completed a landscaping project at our house and we are damned pleased with the result. Virtuoso were hired to do the hard landscaping for a design provided by another landscape designer. All the way through the project they have contributed excellent ideas and alternatives as the construction progressed. The care, attention and skill that has been applied to our project has been impressive and appreciated. No corners have been cut and nothing has been too much trouble. The whole team has been very accommodating to our requirements. We will happily use Virtuoso again for our next project and have no problems with recommending them to you as well."

    "I regularly recommend Virtuoso to many of my clients, especially when the job is complicated and large. Their attention to detail and emphasis on quality is constantly high and their ability to understand the requirements of the plans are some of the main reasons why I never hesitate to use them to implement my designs. Paul Byford the owner, has an easy and relaxed demeanour but with a clear understanding of providing a reliable and cost effective service whilst effectively managing the expectations of both his customers and me the designer."

    What impressed most was Paul\'s commitment to achieving a high quality result and there was never any hesitation in making any changes we requested to achieve this.
    Paul is a good communicator and pleasant to deal with and we enjoyed having his team around working on the property. They were always pleasant and helpful.
    We\'re thrilled with our new garden.
