Summer 2012 - Happy Jubilee Weekend!!

Summer 2012 has certainly got off to a good start for the team at K M Landscapes who are enjoying being hard at work in the good weather we have been having.
 
Having completed works at Bambino's Nursery in Gourock, the beginning of the summer has kept the team busy with their maintenance contracts as well as working on projects in Bearsden (the building of a secluded, paved area and erection of gazebo) and Greenock (the creation of a traditional Scottish garden, giving a fresh lease of life to a mature garden which included the incorporation of many different types of Scottish thistles, creation of a natural pond / water feature, and the planting of trees) - photos coming soon!!
 
 
 
Enjoy the long weekend!

Happy Easter 2012 from the team at K M Landscapes

Happy Easter!!
 
It is that time of year where gardens all around Scotland are coming to life again after the winter and, of course, the time of year for thinking about doing some planting!
 
Over the past year, the team have seen an increased interest in "going green" and are often asked to help out with ideas for composting and growing fruits and veg.  Our landscaper Keith's designs are often created with this in mind, and many of the team's designs incorporate planting areas for the growing of vegetables.  Please get in touch for a free inital consultation if you require any landscaping and are thinking about starting your own veggie patch!
 
Spring 2012 also saw KML expanding yet again as the boys welcomed their new apprentice, David, to the team - welcome, David!! 
 
Over the past few months the team have been hard at work on projects in Inverkip, Dowanhill and Blantyre (photos to follow!) and are shortly to be beginning a small project at Bambino's nursery in Gourock.  Fingers crossed the weather stays nice!

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year from the Team at K M Landcapes!

winter garden. garden maintenance. landscape gardener. drainage.
Well it has been the mildest winter Scotland has seen for many years, and whilst this was a welcome break from the snow of last year, the team have been rushed off their feet due to the damage being caused by the high winds which have been battering us! Hopefully yesterday mornings gale was the last of these for a while!

So, in between fixing peoples blown away fences etc, the team have been hard at work over the festive period, renovating the gardens of a large care home in Glasgow, including creating decks and seating areas for the residents so that they can sit outside and enjoy the gardens.

Please have a look around our website and give us a call for a free initial consultation, and Happy New Year!!!

As winter approaches...

Well, we are into November now and the team at K M Landscapes are making the most of the continued dry and mild weather, having been hard at work on a complete garden makeover in Bearsden for the past few weeks.  The team have also seen the continued surge in requests for pre-winter garden overhauls, with people anticipating a repeat of the long hard snowy winter of 2010!

K M Landscapes also did their bit for charity in October, as their services were raffled off at Breast Cancer Fundraiser in Glasgow.  The lucky winner was delighted to be offered the teams landscaping services free of charge, and the team are happy to be doing their bit for such a good cause.

The Testimonials page has been updated with all the lovely comments the team have been receiving from clients, click here to view, and remember there are also reviews on freeindex.

Autumn leaves and the end of summer

autumn leaves.  Glasgow, Greenock, East Kilbride, Bearsden, garden makeover, patio, decking, build, summerhouseSo the summer is now officially over, and with the team at K M Landscapes still making the most of the longer days and warmer weather while they can, they are also busy making preparations for Autumn 2011 and then winter (yet again!) - better look out those thermals, boys!
 
So, whilst opinion is divided on whether we will be in for another long, snowy winter like last year, the team is making the most of the mild weather while they can, currently working on jobs on the South Side of Glasgow, Livingston and Edinburgh.
 
So, whether you're looking for some end of summer maintenance in preparation for the winter, or are wanting your garden landscaped in time for Spring / Summer 2012, give us a call or drop us an email for your free quotation.....and enjoy the rest of the good weather!

Summer 2011

Despite the clouds and the rain, summer is very definitely here, and the team at K M Landscapes are making the most of it!
 
It has been a busy summer so far, with the team working on jobs in Gourock, Greenock West, Hyndland, Renfrew and Tollcross.  As well as the usual hard landscaping that the team undertake, there have been many visits to horticultural nurseries, sourcing unusual and exotic plants, shrubs and trees to create some beautiful bespoke planting schemes - photos coming soon!
 
If you're thinking of having some work done to your garden this year, drop the team an email at enquiries@kmlandscapes.net or call 0751 388 2241 for your free consultation.

Happy Easter from the team at K M Landscapes!

Spring is now well and truly underway with the weather over the holiday weekend being lovely and sunny (for a change!).  No holidays for the team at K M Landscapes however, who are taking advantage of the good weather to get as many gardens as possible looking good in time for summer.  

The team have been working in both Edinburgh and the West End of Glasgow in the past few weeks, before moving onto jobs in the South Side and the East Kilbride/Thorntonhall area after Easter.  Hope the boys manage to squeeze in a day off at some point this Spring/Summer! We will be adding more photos of recent works to the website shortly, so give us a call or click here to arrange your free initial consultation!

Looking forward to Spring...

cherry tree. Patio, fencing, turfing, GlasgowWith the imminent arrival of Spring, February has seen the K M Landscapes team through in Edinburgh (currently, Oxgangs) planting in excess of 50 cherry trees as part of the regeneration of Edinburgh suburbs. 
 
The trees are being planted using platypus land anchors rather than traditional stake and tie as this is both more secure and aesthetically pleasing.
 
Hope the weather keeps up after the day of snow again last week!
 
The team are also currently quoting on jobs for this Spring, in and around Glasgow and the West, so please get in touch for your free estimate!
 
 

Winter 2010/11

Well it has been a busy winter for K M Landscapes, due in no small part to the extreme snow in December! 
 
The snowy weather saw the team working in Edinburgh, mostly Merchiston and Colinton, clearing snow for much of December.
 
The thaw in early January allowed the team returned to work in Glasgow (recently completed job in Crookston - photos coming soon!) before moving onto the renovation of Falkirk Town Centre in mid January - see the team hard at work on The Politics Show on bbc iplayer!
 
After the long, cold Winter, K M Landscapes are looking forward to a busy, productive Spring - more updates coming soon!
