City Gardens cover all aspects of landscaping

Welcome to City Gardens, the Devon-based landscape gardeners that will meet all your landscaping needs. Whether you need our guidance on design, construction or planting, our years of experience make us the perfect choice for every aspect of landscaping, be it private or commercial.

We are members of the Institute of Groundsmanship alongside the best landscape gardeners in the UK. We share a vision of the highest quality and standards of landscaping work.

Not only this, we are also members of the British Association of Landscape Industries and have received approved installer status for Bradstone Paving. Therefore, with City Gardens you can rest easy knowing your garden is in the hands of certified landscape gardening experts.

Our motto is Design – Construct – Plant, and we believe this best captures our expertise as landscape gardeners. Not only can we upgrade your existing lawns to fit the vision you have for your home, we can start completely from scratch and create a beautiful new lawn tailored to suit you. Our website contains examples of some of our work, so please feel free to explore, be inspired and see what we can do for you.

We know we are the best landscape gardeners for your every gardening request and we take great pride in the work we do. Both our work and our customers have been recognised across the UK; we won a medal at the Chelsea Flower Show and were also the winners of the British Association of Landscape Industries Award for the best British Domestic Garden in 2017. It’s great to be recognised and rewarded for our hard work but these awards are just the start of our endeavour to grow and provide the highest quality landscaping expertise to all of our customers.

If you would like to learn more about what we do or want to talk about your garden’s needs, please feel free to get in touch with us. We look forward to hearing from you!


If you are starting from scratch or in need of a major make over then the answer is most probably yes and we can offer you a free initial consultation.

Do you need a design?

Design fees are usually time-based and will obviously vary depending on the complexity of your wishes and the complications of the site.

Whilst garden construction provides the skeleton of a garden, it is the planting that puts the flesh on the bones.

We all know that a successful planting scheme is dependent on soil types and position but what is less understood is the value of an understanding of how different plants relate to one another.

Our Clients Say

“We asked City Gardens to redesign an area of our garden including a boundary structure; the design was eye-catching and thoughtfully laid out; the work was carried out meticulously, and we were absolutely delighted with the result.”

Mr. H. Sitter, Exeter

“Our garden design was installed from scratch by City Gardens and, despite encountering some very extensive subterranean tree roots that needed to be removed, it now looks brilliant! The work involved the construction of an extensive patio, brick paved areas, lawn and gardens. In particular a large spherical water feature, in the form of an orb, needed to be constructed and, whilst this tested their ingenuity, it is an outstanding success. Their attention to detail and concern for the aesthetics was evident throughout and we have no reservations about recommending them to others.”

Bryan and Celia Holmes, Willand

“Projects were carried out to a high standard of preparation and craftsmanship with good quality materials. It was a pleasure to have this company execute the work, with sound advice, attention to detail and efficiency. We are happy to recommend City Gardens to other potential customers.”

Mrs S Waite, Ebford

“It has changed from being the worst pitch in the league to the best pitch in the league.”

Torquay United Football Club

“Excellent work and done on time and to budget. Pointing of Victorian brick wall done very well. Large planter very well built. Beautiful robust wooden walkway built and wiring for garden lighting was laid. Very friendly team and good tidy workers. Planting was done meticulously. Would highly recommend City Gardens.”

Dr. A. Warin, Exeter

“City Gardens have transformed my garden with two new ponds, a lovely little deck and some bespoke screening to separate off the utility / vegetable garden from the ornamental area. Everything has been built to the highest standards and finished off with some exotic planting to give a luxuriant jungle feel to the garden. Couldn’t be more pleased.”

Mrs. A. Jones, Seaton

“City Gardens have undertaken several projects of alteration and improvement since we purchased our property in 2007 which have all been completed with care, on time, and to a high standard. The fact that we continue to call on their services demonstrates our total confidence in their design and construction abilities.”

Mr. D Tuckley, Sidmouth
