Scheme for Property Development
We called Terrey to our Landhaven Homes development site in Portishead mid-build to help with garden and landscaping plans. The garden had been derelict for years and was a completely overgrown mess. She grasped the high-end look we wanted to achieve and appreciated the limits of our budget.
She gave excellent suggestions and advice on where to focus resources. She was very professional, approachable and a pleasure to work with. We definitely recommend her and look forward to working together again in the future.

Architect Designed Property with Modern Back Garden & Drive
After the construction of our architect-designed new home, we were left with a front and rear garden and driveway which needed design and attention as a matter of some urgency. We contacted “Outer Space” as a local company with an excellent reputation to match the high standards of our building. They did not let us down.
Beginning with the meticulous laying of the granite pavers for the driveway surface by Conrad and his team to the design and planting of the front beds, we knew we were in capable hands. They suggested suitable materials for the driveway to set off the design of the house. Terrey spent some time with us perfecting a complementary planting scheme for the front beds, which fulfilled our brief for an interesting planting to involve minimum maintenance. Today the shrubs are maturing and we are receiving frequent compliments on its appearance.
We called on Terrey to design our rear garden and were very pleased with the result, from the high quality of the recommended materials to the exemplary standard of finish achieved by the team of landscapers, it sets off our home perfectly. As a gardener, it was a pleasure to plant up the newly constructed beds.
We compliment the firm on their professionalism at every stage; making and keeping to the initial appointments on design and planning, working through the most atrocious weather conditions and still managing to achieve a meticulous finish, keeping to the set timetable for commencement of the projects. The team was unfailingly polite, well mannered and cheerful when carrying out the work.
We do not hesitate in recommending Outer Space to anyone who is looking for a high standard in design and construction for their exterior projects.

Hot Tub Terrace
One of our new year resolutions for 2019 was to refurbish and extend the patio area of our rear garden. We firstly appointed Terrey from Outerspace to produce a design for this. She worked closely with us over a period of several months, taking our ideas and requirements into account. We knew we wanted a hot tub and specific areas for seating, dining and sun-lounging but needed some inspiration to create a contemporary look. Terrey gave us several innovative and creative ideas which she gladly integrated with our own. She provided us with a vision as well as product samples and examples of similar work to help us visualise the end result. She listened to us carefully throughout the design process and willingly amended the plan several times until we were satisfied with the final version. The final design was professional, clear, accurate and precise.
Before proceeding with the construction work we sought three quotations from different landscaping businesses using Terrey’s design. All three companies were very similar in cost but we decided to proceed with Outerspace as we were very impressed with Conrad’s knowledge, expertise and professionalism. We had seen first-hand the results of his work in the local area and were also keen to achieve a seamless integration between the design concept and build.
As soon as the work started we knew we had made the right decision. Conrad and his construction team (five in total) were highly professional at all times – always punctual, reliable, considerate, hard-working and good humoured. A tall order considering the weather was atrocious and it seemed to never stop raining! Conrad managed the project extremely well and was always on site with his team to take an operational lead. With meticulous attention to detail he had a passion to get everything just right and to a high standard. He was always approachable, checked in with us regularly and resolved any snags quickly and efficiently. After the work was completed the clean-up operation was as professional and meticulous as the work itself.
We are delighted with the end result and highly recommend Outerspace for garden landscaping projects. We look forward to enjoying our newly landscaped garden in the sunshine when it arrives.

Our family garden had become unlovely and unloved when we contacted Outerspace. I knew the look I wanted, however I had no idea how to achieve it. Terrey completely understood and came up with a design which maximises the space available, balancing the sloping site with a beautiful planting plan which incorporates all my favourite plants. The work of Conrad and his team was of the highest quality with a meticulous attention to detail. The result is a garden that we absolutely love and which we all enjoy spending time in. Thank you Outerspace!

Contemporary Country Front & Back Garden
Outerspace designed and landscaped both our front and back gardens over a period of two years. Both Terrey and Conrad (and their team of merry men) were absolutely fabulous to deal with in every way. Terrey listened carefully to our initial ideas on what we thought we might like and contributed fabulous new ideas and expanded on the those that we already had. She kept us well informed throughout the design process and managed our expectations on time frames and cost. Her designs were incredibly well considered and exactly what we were looking for.
Conrad and the team delivered those designs down to the smallest details and were professional, friendly and a delight to deal with. They worked methodically, with incredible attention to detail. Any problems were quickly dealt with and the team would always leave the site tidy at the end of the day. We are delighted with our new spaces, we always get compliments from people who visit, and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Long Gravel Drive
We are so pleased with the redesign of our driveway and front garden by Outerspace. We went through several design reiterations with Terrey before the project started in earnest. Conrad and his team then made it all happen, braving snow and some of the worst conditions for this type of project. Conrad has a great team of friendly, seasoned professionals, who have worked together for some time and their attention to detail was excellent.

Sea View Deck
Outerspace embraced this project where many would have baulked at the sheer physical challenge and inaccessibility of the location. Perched at the very top of an extremely steep hillside , the team created a stunning decked terrace that afforded the most spectacular sea views and created an amazing outdoor setting for our whole family to enjoy.
We watched in awe and trepidation as Millboard decking, joists, oak sleepers, gravel and aggregates were hand carried up the 25 meter vertical climb along with tools and equipment. The team worked to the highest professional standards and the final result speaks for itself. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the completed project which was designed and constructed by Outerspace.
We have sadly since left this property, relocating to the USA but not before enjoying the deck through the amazing summer of 2018. It has proved a real asset to the property and definitely helped to sell our house when we came to relocate.
G Fretwell, Clevedon, 2018
We love our new garden. The process from design to our first cup of tea in the evening sun was smooth, on time and in budget. Terrey is an excellent listener and we have all our needs met, growing space for herbs and veg, relaxing areas to catch the sun, colour and space all in a small urban garden. Conrad and the construction team achieved an amazing amount in a tight time frame with humour and superb attention to detail. We have the high quality robust and beautiful sanctuary that we wanted – thankyou!
R Ayres, Bristol, 2018
The attention to detail in both the design and construction process was quite exceptional and I would have no hesitation in recommending Outerspace Creative Landscaping to anyone thinking of undertaking a garden project. Very professional company.
V Ludley, Bristol, 2016
We have been working with Terrey and the Outerspace team for almost 10 years now, and always find them a pleasure to deal with. They are extremely professional, excellent communicators and their work and garden schemes are always thoughtful and creative. We don’t hesitate in recommending their services.

Waterfront Back Garden
I have been delighted by the quality of the workmanship in the build, the fantastic good nature and professionalism demonstrated by everyone in the team (from design to build completion) and finally the beautiful end result. It has transformed our back garden and entrance area of the house to something with which we are very proud.
P Otway, Portishead, 2013
We would like to thank you all for the way in which you have conducted the whole project.

Garden with a View Beyond
I’ve been meaning to contact you to let you know how thrilled I am with the garden – I can’t really believe it – I keep going out there and its going to give me such joy; the water feature is lovely – all the birds are back and they are using it as a great water supply! Everything is perfect and with this weather I can really enjoy sitting out in it.”

Formal Front Garden
A scruffy, overgrown and neglected area was transformed by Terrey and Conrad at Outer Space into a beautifully designed front garden, providing a serene and aromatic area to sit in the sun, enjoy its lovely plants and watch the bees and butterflies they attract. A carefully planned planting scheme means that throughout the year there is always a sense of anticipation and something looking its best. We have lost count of the number of people who have stopped to admire it and, whether viewing it from the house or from the pavement, our front garden brings us great pleasure…we couldn’t be more thrilled and delighted!

Contemporary Koi Pond
Every time I go outside I feel like I’m stepping out into a glossy magazine, it’s a dream come true. The brief for our project was really challenging both technically and in terms of integrating the proposal with the garden and architecture of the property. It was a lot to deliver, but Outerspace exceeded our expectations. Every morning I look out and marvel at what you have created.
M Flower, Bristol, 2009
Sloping Front Garden
The garden is even better than we had hoped for, it is now so easy to manoeuvre the wheelchair but the most impressive element is how lovely it all looks. The stonework is great and the paving very smart. We are very aware of the huge time and energy the build team have lavished on the project. The planting scheme works just beautifully, we really could not improve it in anyway at all, thank you for giving us such a wonderful space!”
