GDL was established in 1976 by garden designer David Sisley F.S.G.D. We are full contractor members of B.A.L.I. (British Association of Landscape Industries), have been awarded 6 National Landscape Awards & David is a registered member of the Society of Garden Designers. David's sons Brian & Adam are the mainstay of the construction team whilst his wife Marion produces the plants so essential for the structure & style of the garden. Therefore everything is in-house from inception to completion.

Gardens of all shapes & sizes have been developed over the years from small courtyards to rambling country estates. Embracing every element of the garden from positioning the clothesline to providing equestrian facilities.

Working primarily throughout Essex, renowned for being flat, we have frequently developed steeply sloping gardens.

Most budgets can be accommodated & projects may be phased over a period of time if required. A flexible service is offered from just creating the layout plan to a complete design & build, or anything inbetween. Whether your garden is contemporary or traditional we aim to provide functional outdoor space to suit your lifestyle whilst encompassing year round interest & colour.

David is available for informal advice at Straight Mile Nursery Gardens most Sundays, ( please book a time slot during summer months ), or will visit local gardens for a free initial consultation.
