We got back from France very late last night and it was with great anticipation we had our first proper look at the new front garden. We are delighted! What a transformation of the space.
Mr & Mrs G, Stirling
When we retired to Stirling, we were thrilled with our big garden after our pocket handkerchief in Kent. However, after a couple of years of struggling with decrepit decking and boggy lawn, we knew we had to get professional help and, after a trawl through the internet, we were most impressed by the work of Michael and Jill at Vialii and chose them. At the initial consultation, it was immediately clear how right we were. Enthusiastic, knowledgeable and full of suggestions for our problem garden, they came up with two innovative and exciting designs for us to choose from. Then watching our disaster area being gradually transformed into a space we couldn’t wait to get out into was so interesting and absorbing. Michael and Connor worked incredibly hard and Jill chose lovely pots and plants and now, after a few weeks, we have a wonderful, manageable garden that will be a delight for years to come. And our dog loves to lie on the artificial lawn which she views as a big rug! In the words of our neighbours, it is gorgeous.
Mr & Mrs L, Stirling
I’d forgotten how bad the garden was before, but so chuffed I found Vialii. Fantastic people to deal with and just could not be happier with the result! I’ve spent my evening either wandering around or staring at it from the window!
Mr P, Brightons
After 11 years of a completely dull back garden, I walk around the new garden in absolute amazement – and that is without any planting! It certainly takes time, effort and money but I have no regrets having chosen to do this and am very much looking forward to all aspects of its enjoyment – particularly in warmer weather!
Mrs C, Perth
When Jill and Michael first saw our garden we were first time gardeners who had inherited a vast jungle of very mature garden that had been unattended for several years. We needed a total transformation into different functional sections that could be maintained by novices with a very young family. Oh, and on a limited budget. Vialli came up with a plan we loved to create a welcoming dining area, an outdoor lounge and a fruit and veg production area. By up-cycling items uncovered in the house renovations and moving plants around the garden we now have a unique garden that works for us and already seems established. We have been inspired to get out there and enjoy our own dear green place in Glasgow. I don’t think we can ever thank Michael, Jill and Lulu enough!
Dr K, Glasgow
My garden was overgrown and neglected and badly in need of some major TLC. Not being a gardener and not having much of a clue what to do it was off to the Internet seeking inspiration. It was here I discovered Vialii Garden Design. There were many similar companies offering the service I was looking for and it was difficult to choose one over another. However I was impressed with Vialii’s web site and close location so I contacted them. Soon after, I met with Michael for an initial consultation. He was very knowledgeable and offered sound advice. So, armed with some vague thoughts from me, off he went to plan and, with hard work, implement a design that would change my garden from the eyesore it was to somewhere I want to spend a lot of time relaxing for many years to come and with little maintenance. . . . . . . result! I’m pleased to have chosen Vialii Garden Design I found them very professional throughout the build and Michael and the boys worked very hard giving me the garden he thought I should have.
Mr McC, Bannockburn
Michael and Jill are easy to work with and passionate about what they do. I was pleased to find they are good listeners and, as a designer myself, I was happy that they were willing to incorporate my ideas in the garden design. The Vialii team were easy to have around, worked very professionally and created good quality workmanship. The end result is the garden we dreamt of; one that we can be proud of; which we enjoy using and that is going to give us many years of pleasure. It will be exciting to see it mature and grow.
Mr & Mrs N, Stirling
You have done it AGAIN! After the beautiful garden that you created for us at our previous address, we knew that we required your expertise yet again to tame and transform the wilderness that we inherited when we moved to Bridge of Allan. It came as no surprise that you were booked a few months ahead. But we were prepared to wait and of course this was the correct decision. Even better that your timing coincided with our holidays. So we left home and our jungle and came back to an amazing transformation. Please convey our thanks to the rest of your team. But of course our biggest thank you goes to you for completing the work so quickly, despite us adding on extra work, the adverse weather conditions and of course illness with some of your team members. We really love our garden and can be seen frequently gazing out in amazement. Thank you also to Jill for her help and advice with design and of course baby Lulu for her beautiful smiles which would brighten up any rainy day. On that note, have you arranged the weather yet to allow us to sit out on our new patio?
Mr & Mrs F, Bridge of Allan
We are thrilled with the work. Glad we got the lighter stones for the patio. Thanks again.
Mr & Mrs Y, Stirling
My husband and I wanted to say how pleased we are with the work you carried out on the garden. It’s now such a pleasure to spend time in it again and we are looking forward to getting all the plants and seeds in. In particular, we found the process very clear from start to completion. That was partly because of your helpful website and partly because you and Jill explained all the steps in advance of the work being started. From design to completion, you were very flexible and accommodating. The work was carried out to timetable, neatly and tidily, and with great attention to detail. It is very unusual to find a business which communicates at every stage with the client and works with such honesty and integrity. We felt we could trust you and your staff, and the standard of workmanship was outstanding. The part of the garden you did not landscape now looks rather drab and dull. When the time comes, we will certainly get in touch so you can finish the job!
Mrs M, Stirling
Vialli are based in Stirling and they cover all areas of Central Scotland and we would highly recommend their services – not only with design, but with landscaping and maintenance too. We already had an idea of what we wanted to do with our garden, but Michael really helped us get it to the next level and has given us tons of advice on how to get it finished and keep it in tip top condition. We’ve learnt so much in just a few days and I’m really looking forward to Spring and Summer next year and being able to enjoy spending time in the garden at last!
Miss M, Kinghorn
From the outset Vialii Garden Design did what they said they would, when they said they would do it. They were reliable, polite, efficient, hard working, and tidied up after each day’s work. It was a great boon for us to have the design and building work done by the same people. They listened to our wishes and ideas carefully and incorporated them into the design. They kept us informed at every stage of the project. We are delighted with the standard of workmanship and the final result. We cannot speak too highly of Vialii Garden Design and wish Michael and Jill best wishes for the future.
Mr & Mrs C, Stirling
Absolutely thrilled with the transformation of our garden from inaccessible slope to inspiring terrace! The new plants and shrubs have met our expectations and more for colour, scent and insect interest. We particularly love our new “standing stone” dug from the clay depths! It was a real workout for you and your colleague but we would have never known that with your enthusiasm and hard work so clearly apparent. We would have no hesitation recommending your services and indeed already have! Planning the next installment ourselves.
Mr & Mrs Y, Stirling
WOW was the word that was repeated quite a few times as we wandered round our beautiful garden at 2.30am this morning with a torch when we returned from our holiday!!! It is has exceeded our expectations and are very much looking forward to spending time in it. We are glad that we were away for the last phase – it certainly made it more exciting and for once I was happy to be coming home from holiday to see what awaited us…. and we are all thrilled with it.
Mr & Mrs B, Bridge of Allan
Thank you for your design Michael and Jill. Both myself and Libby are really happy with it.
Mr T, Stirling
Our garden had become nothing more than a chore – lots of lawn to cut and square borders to edge. Planting was random as we tried to fill gaps in the border. Apart from trying to maintain it, we were rarely out in it. It was like that for 8 years. We asked Michael and Jill for help. We wanted to employ a company that could not only carry out the landscaping but who could propose designs based on our individual requirements as well as taking into consideration the garden itself. From planning through to implementation, the results far exceeded our expectations. The standard of work was high and attention to detail superb. We felt that Michael and Jill were committed to our garden and passionate about their work. Our garden is now much more like an extension to our home and we are enjoying the space. I would recommend their services to anyone.
Mrs W, Airth
We chose Vialii Garden Design from a number of companies because of the very personal approach taken by Michael and Jill. The combination of design and implementation delivered together made it a very easy choice and we haven’t been disappointed. The garden looks fantastic and is a pleasure to be in – we’re hoping for the best summer ever. If I had to pick a favourite area it would be the courtyard garden which has transformed a little used space into a little piece of heaven. Michael calls it the utility area but its definitely more than that!
Thanks for giving us such a great space to use and enjoy.
Ms S, Larbert
Very many thanks for all your hard work and expertise in creating our beautiful garden. We are truly delighted with the result and are very appreciative of the co-operative and considerate manner in which you carried out the work. We wish you and your business every success in the future.
Mr & Mrs E, Dunblane
Thank you for all your hard work. We just need you to arrange for the good weather now to allow us to enjoy our lovely garden.
Mr & Mrs F, Tillicoultry
Came home today and the garden looks fantastic. We are really pleased with the end result. Nothing prepares you for this and I must say that it looks even better than the plan showed!
Mr B, Menstrie
