Where landscaping is concerned, Alan meets both large and small challenges with the same dedication and enthusiasm.

Some of his projects include ha-has, lakes and wildflower meadows, vineyards, trufièrres, forests and willow mazes, not to mention bespoke structures such as summerhouses and teahouses. Alan is also a registered installer of Haddonstone ponds.


With 30 years’ garden landscaping experience, Alan Dodge oversees and project manages all of our landscaping schemes, including resources, men, materials and machinery – everything required to construct and plant your garden.

It is always beneficial to have a scale drawing to work with no matter how small the project.  It might be a plan for a set of steps or a pond – no two gardens are ever the same. You’ll probably have your own garden landscaping ideas too, and these will be drawn up so that everyone is clear about the plan.  Alan draws the analogy that no matter how small, creating a garden without a plan is very similar to driving to Scotland without a roadmap!

Construct your Garden with Landscaping Expert, Alan Dodge

Once your plan has been created Alan can look at costs to implement the work, how best to construct the garden and the resources that will be required. Part of Alan’s remit is also to ensure that nothing is wasted. If there is something in your garden that can be recycled he will recommend that he uses it.  If there is a way to save money or a more eco-friendly way of tackling your garden project, he can advise you.  He is happy to help you to visualise and will show you the materials that will work best and fit within your landscaping budget. If you can design it, Alan can construct it!

A Comprehensive Design and Landscaping Service

Both Alan & Sue work closely with you throughout the design build and they can liaise with planners and authorities if the work requires it.  Once the garden outline has been constructed and the lawns turfed, Sue can draw up a planting plan for the beds and borders and Alan would give you the cost for the work involved to cultivate, plant and bark off.  

So from beginning to completion:

The Company of Landscapers can provide a fully comprehensive design and landscaping service for you and would  welcome submissions of designs for costing and construction from other designers and design practices.
