The Acorn team were absolutely fantastic, from design to the work being done, everyone we spoke to was extremely helpful. The lads on site were very friendly, worked fast, and left everything clean and tidy. Our garden transformation is fantastic and we can’t recommend them highly enough.

I only leave reviews for things I really like, and I’m so impressed with the team at Acorn Landscape Gardening from initial enquiry through to complete garden transformation. David did a great design based on a few photos I sent him. He was great about the couple of changes I wanted to make and provided a new CAD drawing so I could get an idea of the finished effect. Ian conducted a thorough site visit, taking more photos and measurements. Already I had a sense of the kind of company they are. The crew doing the work (Zac, Terry and Warren) were fantastic -really polite and friendly and they worked hard in the blazing sun. They transformed my tired looking, overgrown garden into a beautiful space that we can enjoy for years to come. They also do a great job clearing down, so my drive looked better when they left than when they arrived. Apart from the evidence in the back garden, you would never know they had been there. Now to the garden centres to choose some nice plants 😊 Thanks Acorn team – highly recommended.

We have just completed our garden transformation and could not be happier with the results! The service from Acorn was incredible from beginning to end. The design process was really collaborative and Gaynor really helped bring our vision to life while navigating some complex requirements. Ian and the team worked through all weather conditions to create a high quality family garden for us. They came up with solutions to problems and suggested ideas that we hadn’t considered. We are very grateful and would highly recommend their services. Thanks, Hannah and Mark.

Acorn have recently redesigned our rear garden installing a new patio and also re turfing. In addition, they removed a concrete wall along the side of the house which has made such a difference to the look and feel of the area. We are so happy with the results and can’t praise Acorn Landscaping enough. Ian and the team worked so hard in all weathers and did an amazing job! We really love our new garden. Many thanks to all at Acorn Landscaping.

Our lawn was transformed from an area of grass, paving slabs and an invasion of Mares Tail weeds, into a glorious array of coloured Indian Stone paving slabs. Absolutely stunning. Grateful thanks to Ian and his team of professional dedicated workers. Highly recommended. Mrs. Jp. Fishwick and family.

A guide to choosing the right pergola

There are benefits and costs to having a roof on a pergola and the right decision will depend on how you intend to use it. 

If you would like to be able to sit out and drink coffee, read or work in all weathers then a pergola with a roof will be what you need. 

On the other hand, if you would like the pergola to create a focal point for sunny days in the garden, a roof can block out the sun and obstruct the feeling of being out in the fresh air. 

As you would expect, the bigger and fancier the pergola the more it will cost. To maximise the value you get for your money we recommend considering what you are hoping to achieve with the pergola, cutting out anything which doesn’t add value for you but will cost extra and focusing on the f

As you would expect, the bigger and fancier the pergola the more it will cost. To maximise the value you get for your money we recommend considering what you are hoping to achieve with the pergola, cutting out anything which doesn’t add value for you but will cost extra and focusing on the features which will make the biggest difference.

For example , if you are looking to provide shelter for relaxation or dining, paying extra for the roofing material will be worth it. However, if your main consideration is privacy then consider installing lattice panels instead.

If you plan on entertaining friends and family regularly during the summer months think about planning for this in your design, for example, including a couple of benches or a BBQ area. This can make a huge difference to the value you get from your pergola and is a lot more important than, say, having lights installed throughout.

Once you have an idea of what you’d like for your pergola, it’s time to start planning where exactly in your garden you would like it.

eatures which will make the biggest difference.

For example

There are three main category’s of material used for building pergolas: Wood, metal and composite plastic. Wood is the most commonly used and easily available due to its low cost and availability.

Wood pergolas are normally painted or stained after being erected to protect the wood, which allows it’s beautiful appearance to last for many years. This also provides some resistance against mildew and insects . However, wood can rot due to weather conditions or termites.

Composite and metal pergolas are less common and harder to get hold of but can offer some advantages over wooden pergolas. Composite is a man made material which includes recycled plastic being used to create pergolas. This offers resistance against rot or insects however composite materials are generally more expensive than wood

Metal pergolas are designed with strength in mind and offer the highest level of protection from all elements . Metal can also be powder coated in any colour although often lacks the rustic look that many want from a pergola.

Pergolas can be fixed into the ground by with burying and cementing the structure posts or using metal brackets which bolt into concrete or paving.

the strongest method is to cement the posts in at the base however this is not always possible and make it difficult to move.

For a pergola which can be move or removed its best to opt for bolted metal brackets when securing the feet.
