Happy customers

We are delighted with the design, professionalism and workmanship carried out in our recent garden landscaping. It has exceeded our expectations and we will have no hesitation in recommending you to all of our friends.
You have a great team and the quality of work carried out is superb. We are going to have a lot of happy times in our new garden thanks to The Outdoor Living Co. team.


From my first contact with The Outdoor Living Co. every detail was dealt with very effectively. Matthew found out what I wanted, plans were drawn up, then modified, the site manager visited to check access etc. then, without too much delay, the workers arrived and got on with the work.

And how they worked! It was a very warm spell but they were so efficient and hard working. From the first ground clearing to the final beautiful garden they laboured and cleared , and tidied up after themselves. The site was left clean and tidy after the site manager had taken me round checking all was in order.

Yes, I would certainly recommend your company to anyone looking to have changes made to their garden. I should say that you were recommended to me by a neighbour, and she was also recommended by a friend. It is so good to find a reliable company.

I have just sat in our garden for a couple of hour and thinking back, I cannot believe the transformation of both our front and rear gardens thanks to The Outdoor Living Co.
Yes, you guys might not be the cheapest, but you certainly provide quality and long-lasting materials, as well as excellent design ideas and planting schemes.
You have given us a raised grass area, which doubles as one for gymnastics, meals (…), requiring little maintenance. It’s such a peaceful, happy and relacing place to be. Priceless.
Thanks to all involved.

We had a full revamp and landscaping of our back garden including construction of retaining walls, laying slabs, turfing and fencing. Excellent service provided throughout the job and polite reliable company to use.

Debbie Wilson

Full hard landscaping of our sloping back garden including terraced sections, curved descending path and steps with soil retaining wall leading to lower patio, and creation of vegetable garden at rear side of house and 8.2m long raised sleeper bed in front.

The planning was superb with samples of materials available and a 3D walk through. They are very receptive to requests for small changes to ensure the final design was exactly what we wanted.

Once on site the team were brilliant. They were efficient and very competent at all levels. They were courteous and considerate, always ensuring that existing garden and pathways were protected as they worked and that the site was tidy when they left.

We engaged them ourselves on the recommendations of a friend. We have since recommended them for refurbishment of the rear garden of our church’s rectory (job now completed to same high standards) and for full refurbishment of front and back gardens of a friend’s house in Pittenweem (design for this is in progress)

Esther and I wanted to write to thank the whole team for your excellent service and responsiveness throughout the lifetime of our whole garden project.  From the design advice through to the finished product, the team’s commitment to high quality service and finishing, and putting your customers at the heart of the process, has shone through. You have provided clever solutions and wise expert advice throughout. You have consistently reassured us as to your reliability through your punctuality, willingness to adapt, and determination to take ownership of problems.  I would go so far as to say that you have restored our faith that there are trustworthy operators in the Fife construction market.  We are so glad we stayed local, found out about the Fife Council Trusted Trader scheme, found you, and asked you to quote. You take rubble to licensed waste facilities, provide your own outside toilet(!), use quality equipment for the work, produce a project folder with precise measurements to control project outcomes, have a friendly and knowledgeable foreman in Chris doing quality control, have a streamlined project management schedule, have on-site tablets for real-time digital customer satisfaction surveys, an automated billing system that provides remittance advice when invoice are paid, and employ staff who work hard and pay attention to detail. And the final result is a delight we can’t keep our eyes off. We can’t recommend you enough. You’ve proven that construction can be well run and professional, which hasn’t been our experience to date. To prospective customers we want to say “these guys can be trusted, and they are worth it”.


Work carried out was a complete revamp of a large rear garden. The area concerned had two very major slopes, which made any kind of maintenance extremely difficult and time consuming. The plan therefore was to tier and box in the area, and make it a zero maintenance garden with chips/gravel, and artificial turf.
The work was carried out over a four day period, by an excellent group of guys. Friendly, personable, and totally efficient. On completion, the rear garden and patio, front drive, and even the street were cleaned to a spotless standard.
In conclusion, we are extremely happy with the result, and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending The Outdoor Living Co. to whomsoever may be considering using their services.

Mr. Joseph Haughton

Very hard working team, all the lads on site are very polite and come across as very hard working and driven! Excellent attention to detail, all problems (if any) were solved there and then without any trouble.

I look forward to working with them in the future!

Steven Stewart

The Outdoor Living Co. and their workers completely transformed our overgrown courtyard garden into a beautifully clean, tiled area with a pergola and atmospheric lighting – safe and at the same time beautiful. They levelled and cleared all the existing bushes (a major task) leaving just the few we wanted to grow again and a few plants which we chose to start from new. Their professional skill and attention to detail has made the enlarged space look modern and clean yet retaining the features we wanted. The old breezeblock walls were covered with cedar batons enhanced by lighting and the tiling was vitrified Italian tiles in two shades – so easy to keep clean and so practical. They also completely re-monoblocked the drive, side garden and front path – we marvel every time we use it as the improvement is so dramatic. All the workers are friendly helpful and polite – you could not wish to meet a nicer gang!

Carol Mackrodt

We have had quite a lot of work done by The Outdoor Living Co. including a bespoke water feature. The whole process from the first visit, through the design, to the end result has been extremely professional and to a very high standard. Communication has been excellent and they clearly know their trade. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

We had landscaping work carried out to the side and rear of our house. The Outdoor Living Co. were a genuine pleasure to deal with. They really helped at the planning stage and the quality of their work was excellent. Really decent guys.

Gerry Seydak

The process from Simon’s visit to discuss the work required, to the job being done was straightforward and professional. The two men who carried out the work yesterday were very friendly and hard working and completed the job in less than a day and I am very happy to recommend The Outdoor Living Co.

Jennifer Gallacher

“We received a great service from The outdoor Living Co. in transforming our back garden. They worked with us to design and then help us realise our dream garden, with practical solutions to “tricky” areas. They worked diligently and were always tidy, using good quality materials that will last. An excellent firm!”

Alan Hutchison

“A very competent and professional service. The crew were always polite, courteous and thorough in their work. They were always on the job early and every day. The final product was as promised and expected. I would recommend them to anyone and have already done so.”

William Clinkenbeard,

“All personnel were smart, courteous and hard working. From appointments to meet and deadlines to complete all were on time. Contacts by phone, text and email were responded to quickly. Costings and a programme of work were detailed and we were kept up to date as the job progressed. A member of staff contacted us regularly as the job progressed to ensure we were happy with how the job was going and if we had any requests or queries. All trades involved worked tirelessly and tidily, we were very impressed with how the site was protected and cleaned up after each day. For value for money and the standard of workmanship I would highly recommend this trader. In fact we have already engaged them in another job.”

“Would happily recommend The Outdoor Living Co. and would certainly use them again. They completed a redesign and overhaul of our tired rear garden into one that is a showpiece and has cheered us up no end. They are very professional, hard working and a pleasure to deal with. Any problem was quickly resolved. They are a trader that you can trust.”


“The team who carried out the work in our garden were all friendly hard working and absolutely meticulous in the way they carried out the work. They arrived punctually each day and carried out the work exactly to my specifications and within the agreed timeframe. I cannot praise them enough.”

Alexander Kopyto

“The Outdoor Living Co. provided me with an exceptionally professional service with on time completion. The very technical work was completed to a high standard and the price was reasonable for the work undertaken.
Hard working, courteous and tidy, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for any size of job.”

Ron Young

“What a service! Quick, efficient, and hard working. I was very impressed.”

Mrs Judy Routledge

“I have no hesitation in recommending this company. Customer service second to none. My garden has been transformed.”


“What a service. People who do what they say they are going to do, and at a fair price. I’d never hesitate to use these guys again or recommend them to anyone else … and I’m the original grumpy old man.”

Nigel Gauld

“Very efficient service. I will definitely recommend them. I am very glad I came across their website. After being let down by other companies, it was refreshing to find a company that is reliable.”
