Yelp 5 star Review - Sept 2016 Paramount Plants & Gardens are the number one Tree and Shrub Plant Centre! Fantastic plant specimen and excellent efficient delivery. The plants and trees were excellent specimen and such beautiful condition. All fitted perfectly in troughs and looked amazing in place. Clients loved selection and variety!

Just to say "the yellow bird" flew in this morning and is now planted at Singleton church. It looks a wonderful specimen and I to say thank you. Best wishes Vivienne

Shrubs for Hedging Purchase

Hi I bought some pittosporum tenufolium and quercus ilex from you September last year. Just wanted to say they must have been very good specimins because, combined with the conducive growing conditions of St Ives, Cornwall, they have all doubled, (at least) in size. I planted them about 1.5 metres apart and not there are no gaps between them plus they make the perfect screening I was hoping for. Thank You. John (purchased SEPT15)

Evergreen Screening Trees Delivery - January 2016
Great website - that plus delivery were the deal clinchers. Had Googled variegated trees (local nurseries out of stock...think they've sold them all to the many expensive new builds in the must get a lot of demand from that market segment as decent screening must make those expensive but small plots stand out). So your wide range was flagged by Google.  Delivery a no brainer since not many people can collect trees. Promo code made the deal close in a timely manner.

Leylandii Delivery - November 2015 - Just to say many thanks for delivery of the trees, especially in the terrible wind and rain!

Rain - the joy of living in Scotland LOL
Everything about this transaction has gone smoothly, right from the off the communications has been outstanding.

I have worked with Lucas at Paramount Plants on many high end Residential New Build projects, where the garden planting needs to be very impressive, and yet not cost a fortune. Lucas and the team have consistently provided excellent quality plants (and planted them too!) which have resulted in the wow factor needed to sell these multi-million pound houses.  Paramount also offer a fantastic advisory service to maintain the plants and trees, as they have such in depth knowledge of all they supply. I have recommended Paramount Plants on to many clients and have also used their services in my small London garden to great effect. 19th April 2012

Mr & Mrs L.  Private Garden in Hampstead designed & landscaped by Paramount Plants & Gardens

Lucas and his team at paramount plants have been really amazing. They have helped me to create a new garden from start to finish. They took the time to meet with me, discuss what I wanted, and then to design the garden. They advised me on the layout and on the sorts of plants that best suited the soil. They then planted everything for me and were incredibly flexible if I changed my mind  about what sort of plants I wanted. Nothing has been too much for them and they have also advised on fencing and irrigation.  I thoroughly recommend them for anyone who is planting up a new garden!!  October 23rd, 2011

Giulietta Galli - Clamour and Campaign
"I am very happy to recommend Lucas and his work. The Livia Garden at Windmill Hill, Enfield was idealized and planted by Lucas and his team and given that it was to be a public memorial garden, in the aftermath of our daughter's untimely death, it was important to find not only the expertise, but the empathy, to transform a tragic and derelict site into a small but vibrant nature reserve. Entrusting oneself to those who say they can deliver is almost always an act of faith but when they do, it is satisfying, comforting and always value for money." June 8th, 2011

Hired Paramount for Landscape Gardening 
“I hired Lucas and his team on two occasions - the first was to advise and plant out my back garden, the second was to do the same with my front garden. 
A while after the back garden had been completed and having seen the results my wife and I decided to let Lucas work his magic on the front garden. 
I have no hesitation on recommending Lucas and indeed I have done so on a number of occasions.” January 17, 2011

Ivor Taylor - Finance Director and co Owner, Grand Central Studios
In December 2009 Lucas was asked to design, build, plant out and install a very large oak planter forming a 2 metre high by 8 meters long privacy hedge screen. Installation was required as a completed planter, craned onto site, on a specific date. The location was outside and in a major thoroughfare in the busy center of Soho, London. From order to installation was under three weeks, on time and under budget. No fuss, no drama, just results with a great attitude, excellent service and a big smile. We have used Lucas on other projects since and wholeheartedly recommend him and his company.
