'Stimpsons' was formed in May 2000 by Tim Stimpson. Tim has been involved in the garden, landscaping and building industry from a very young age, with both his father and grandfather being groundworkers and civil engineers for a Large Family Business . Since leaving school in 1992, he worked initially at the age of 16 for a nursery and landscape company in Cranham, Essex for 6 years before working for a large national landscaping company, providing services to the commercial and domestic sector including the local Council. Throughout these years he began with 'hands-on' positions and quickly worked up to managerial roles, where he found he missed the doing part! This, therefore, led to Tim starting up 'Stimpsons' as he could combine the planning, arranging and doing parts, along with providing a dedicated 'hands-on' personal service.
Since starting, we are pleased to find we are getting most of my clients approaching us upon recommendation and past clients coming back to us for more work and to further our reputation we are now also gaining some great recognition on ...

Our aim is to provide a professional and friendly Service and go above and Beyond to produceUnique and bespoke long lasting Driveways, Patios & Gardens design and build service from our initial visit, Proposal of works then our optional basic concept drawing (Often FREE for work over 10k) through to highly detailed construction of your project with my skilled team coupled with my natural meticulous eye for detail and 20 years + honed skill set .
We strictly complete one job at a time for 100% commitment to each project.
We strive very hard indeed to achieve complete customer satisfaction during and after completion with our above standard installation methods/care and attention to detail along with our excellent maintenance packages that will look after and keep your investment clean and protected for as many years as you wish !
We take great pride in our workmanship - I'm very passionate about the landscape industry and I have a natural (Gifted) meticulous eye for detail however Large or Small this detail may be - This will show from the Basic Concept Plan Drawing right the way though your build !
We also collect and dispose of all waste generated on our projects in an ethical manor, with all plastic/wood waste collected and recycled.
Where possible on smaller projects we recycle all soil and concrete waste ourselves but with larger projects this may not be logistically viable so we instruct larger companies to remove the waste in bulk to be recycled instead - We avoid sending any waste generated to Landfill - And I'm very proud to be able to recycle nearly all of our waste produced.
Please look around our site at our photos, it might be better to switch from mobile view to web if using mobile phone.
