Client Testimonials

We enjoy listening to our clients' insights once they'd settled into their new garden or roof terrace, and the design process should be a delight, from its first survey photo, through a trudge of a construction site, to the inaugural barbecue by a transformed deck lounge. While this prospect exceeds even our wildest vision, it's pure bliss; when a previous client asks us to redesign their new outdoor space, it's a worthy achievement – a one which we continually strive for.

“Better than the day it was finished”

Amir designed a terrace for our penthouse flat a few years ago. Our terrace is quite an unusual shape. With a clever use of repositioning the paving slabs and adding a stripe of a different coloured stone, our terrace looked so much bigger. Amir is very creative and designed a beautiful terrace. It looks as good, in fact, better than the day it was finished. I would highly recommend him and would be happy to answer any questions to anyone who is thinking of using his services.

“Meticulous implementation”

Take a look at the before and after photo of one corner of our garden to understand why we reached out to Amir. He had the vision to transform our dark, yucky and small outdoor space with no right angles to something every person who has walked into our house is utterly green with envy. Nothing fell below perfect in terms of design, scheduling and implementation – his builders are meticulous. It was really important for my husband and I to also have a say in the garden and Amir listened. He is the best out there – we are lucky and proud owners of a stunning garden.

“The sharpest lines”

I've worked with Amir on two houses now. The first, ten years ago. I loved his work and had a very small budget. He exceeded my expectations and delivered an incredible space for us. It was obvious when moving that I had to call Amir and his team. Yet again, he exceeds expectations, First class design and craftsmanship. He's the only place to go when looking for contemporary design with the sharpest lines you can imagine.

“It looks magical”

I gave Amir a call without knowing him, simply because after browsing the Internet we discovered his website and instantly knew that we had found what and who we were looking for: after hundreds of identical designs something really different and unique! He's the most hard-working, inspired and reliable person we could have dreamed of for the complete makeover of our garden; he focuses on the job and we haven't experienced any delays. His team is also top class and all together they managed to transform a messy small garden into a state of the art modern and bright space. It looks magical as the night changes from dusk to complete darkness, thanks to a first class lighting effect that makes it great for entertaining outside but even better just to look at from the inside. We would and we already have definitely recommend him to anyone!

“Attention to detail”

I came across Mylandscapes website and loved their contemporary designs. Amir came over and after spending some time in my garden produced a fantastic, innovative design taking account of the surrounding views and sunlight and maximising the use of the space available. He is definitely a genius and his attention to detail is superb. The garden looks fantastic and gives me enormous pleasure. I would thoroughly recommend Amir and his team.

“Made it for the wedding reception!”

When we moved into our Canonbury home recently we knew the garden had potential. Amir managed to tackle the 5 metres between kitchen door and top of back wall marvellously and planted some splendid woodland trees and perennials. We love the Japanese maple by the back wall as it's good under the neighbours' trees and colourful. His design ideas were spot on for the concept brief we had given him, and the quality of their engineering & building work was outstanding – Amir has an incredible passion for detail and perfection.


We are both fairly busy so every night returning home watching the transformation unfold was exciting. The team was very trustworthy and clean and it made our lives so easy during those 3 weeks. The big bonus was that we were getting married and Amir did the near impossible by handing to us our newly built garden 3 days ahead of our wedding reception! The garden continues to mature wonderfully, and apart from being beautiful to look at year round, has changed the way we use our house significantly for the better.

“Everyone went mad about it”

Pure genius. Thanks for the candid shot of Truman and the bald guy too. Who's he? We got back here last night about 1:30 with a whole crowd and everyone went mad about it. The reflection of the water hits the back wall at its highest point which is incredible. We have water in the pool... all is good. Enjoy Easter. I'll give you a shout when we are entertaining with the Krug. Cheers Amir for everything, I've loved every minute.

“A very particular customer”

Amir, MyLandscapes owner, has now done two gardens for us and in both cases he created an amazing design which really maximised our available space. His team also did an amazingly high standard job on the installation works which included cleaning up after themselves each day and being very careful when walking through the house. As a very particular customer Amir was always open to our thoughts and we really couldn't be happier with his work. I would and have recommended to him friends and family which is a huge testament to him and his work. Happy to act as a reference.

“Grasp of space”

Amir's work is simply unbelievable. I have done two projects with him and both times I have been absolutely blown away by his creativity and grasp of the space. The quality of his team's work is incredible and I would highly recommend MyLandscapes to anyone after a contemporary look and feel in their terrace big or small – he will amaze you!!! Not only that, both projects have added considerably to the value of my property.

“A live theatre”

Look around, search around, ask around, you will not find any other garden designer like Amir. This was true for me over ten years ago and it still is!!! Every time I see a new photograph of his work, I wish the garden or the terrace were mine! The works of art at the centre of his creations are the plants themselves. Your garden will be like a live theatre where you wish to be day and night...

A Truly Eclectic Portfolio

Having completed over 250 garden and roof terrace design & build projects in London, the South East and Northern Italy, our modern portfolio of gardens and clients is truly eclectic. As most of our city clientele far too busy to plan, plant and maintain its outdoor spaces, the chief design task is pertinently clear – render the voyage from an initial phone call to the first garden party as smoothly, enjoyably, inspiringly and naturally low maintenance as possible!

Hope you enjoy the journey.
