It is always good to know what sort of experience others have encountered from a business. We take pride in giving a friendly, knowledgeable and thoroughly professional service and are proud to list below comments and recommendations from our clients over the years...


"We are absolutely delighted with the garden design work Steph has completed for us. Being a newly converted property with nothing more than a top soiled area at the front and courtyard at the back she had a blank canvas to work with. We are very pleased with the imaginative and attractive designs and planting suggestions she produced, which were far beyond our expectations. The extensive hard landscaping work carried out on the courtyard was completed to agreed timescale, with the minimum of disruption and great attention to detail. We would not hesitate to recommend Steph and team to anyone in the future."
Mr and Mrs K Barley (Tacolneston)

"After spending too much money on our previous garden we decided to employ a professional to sort out our new one and what luck we had in choosing Steph. A listening ear with clear and concise plans plus a good follow on service. Without doubt the best money we have ever spent in the garden"
Rob and Val Bentinck (Watton)

"We first met Steph Markham at the Sandringham Flower Show where her garden design won “Best in Show.” We resolved to contact her for advice should we need help with our garden, which although beautifully situated, posed several challenging problems. We had no previous experience of professional help in garden design and were rather apprehensive .When she first saw the garden she quickly understood the problems and reassured us that given time to formulate a plan she was confident she could solve our problems. The plan, when completed was comprehensive, well presented and radical ! We needed time to think through the plans and at all times Steph was patient and always willing to listen to our concerns . She has been very generous with her time and project managed with sympathy and a firm hand! Her design and the work completed under her supervision, has been of the highest quality and we are thrilled with the way the garden has developed. Her aftercare has been enthusiastic and she has always shared her expertise willingly and without insistence! We can recommend Steph and Greycat Gardeners without reservation !"
Mike and Liz Chadwick

"We embarked on our garden re-design with high hopes but no ideas or direction! From the moment we met Steph she was patient, professional and always contactable. Her design for our garden was realistic but also imaginative. Steph, Paul & Graham all worked tirelessly during a very bleak winter to help turn plans into real life. We are really happy with the result and are still finding new plants, views and a new enjoyment from the garden"
Mr & Mrs M Walters (Wymondham)

"We found Greycat by searching the internet. You can be lucky or devastated and we were devastatingly lucky. Steph arrived when she said, produced what we asked for, used that eye for colour and height and managed the job leaving only footprints and a delighted client who won’t hesitate to call again. We have, why don’t you?"
Mr & Mrs Ian Mercer (Stowmarket)

"we are delighted with the new garden layout which has given us a larger than we thought recreational paved area whilst also somehow appearing to give us a larger looking lawn"
Mr & Mrs P Edwards (Longstanton)

"What a brilliant firm this is - providing personal, knowledgeable and helpful service with innovative ideas. They seem happy to deal with large or small projects, mine being small, and they have inspired me to continue and enlarge the raised vegetable beds they designed and installed. It has been an enjoyable experience from the beginning, giving me many hours of pleasure, a continuous supply of home grown vegetables and a source of admiration from visiting friends."
Mrs Pam Shaw (Great Yarmouth)

"I wanted to surprise my husband for his birthday so I employed the help of Steph at Greycat to design us a new garden. We merely wanted design ideas rather than the actual work doing but Greycat was more than willing to provide this for us. Having taking Steph on a tour of the garden she listened to what we wanted and then she offered her advise based on practicalities and size. A few weeks later we received several plans and a whole host of ideas concerning what would and wouldn't look good and more importantly what would grow in the garden! Thanks to Greycat's ingenious ideas we set to work and now have a garden we can be proud of!"
Dr Rebecca Fraser (Norwich)

"We have been delighted with the finished result of our garden, 18months on it looks even better and we get comments from neighbours and people in the village all the time about how lovely it looks which is very nice"
Mr Christopher Filsell (Diss)

"I cannot praise highly enough the service I received from Greycat Gardeners and Steph herself when I needed to ‘revive’ my rather neglected front garden. She visited me on several occasions to discuss what I was trying to achieve, to take photographs and hear my ideas and finally to talk through her suggestions for how my garden could look. I wanted to ‘lose’ some plants which were casualties of last winter, to remove some that just ‘weren’t right’ and to inject some fresh ideas ready for next season. Steph showed me her ideas on her laptop, mounted on a screen which was the exact colour of my house (which is an unusual shade of blue) and scrolled through the planting for each season so that I could see what to expect at each time of the year. Once we had agreed the planting, and a date was fixed, the work was undertaken quickly and without any fuss. The results were immediately obvious and Steph undertook to contact me in the Spring to check that the plants had survived the winter. She was as good as her word and there had been no obvious casualties. The heathers looked lovely to start with and the garden has been an unfolding delight ever since, early highlights being the opening of delicate little tulips…..delightful. It was nice to see some of my own plants incorporated into the design of the garden as this also helped to keep the cost down. My Hostas now look majestic next to dainty little edging plants. Thank you Greycat Gardeners for a lovely job!"
Sarah Bennett (Needham)

"Greycat Gardeners have transformed my garden with stunning hard landscaping and imaginative planting for year round colour. I can thoroughly recommend them."
S. Hayes (Brome, Suffolk)

"The work was completed with the minimum of disruption and we are both delighted with the end result. Just as important has been the level of follow-up service following the completion of the new garden area checking on the condition of the planting etc. We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Greycat Gardeners to family or friends."
Mr & Mrs A. (Oulton Broad, Lowestoft)

"Steph has an artist's eye for colour, height and space. My garden is transformed. The everchanging colours give me a feeling of movement and calm."
R.G. (Beccles)

"We wanted to express our sincere thanks for the fabulous garden you have produced for us. Your initial design was a perfect interpretation of our wishes, and the project was executed with the precision and detail you promised. You have given us a garden to cherish and we look forward to enjoying it with our pending new arrival! Thanks again to you and the Greycat team."
Mr & Mrs P Lewis (Thorpe Abbots)
