Gary Wainwright’s Gardens by Design has been trading for over 30 years now. Set up in Wigan in 1989 we have been serving the North West (Liverpool, The Wirral, Knutsford, Altrincham, Bowden, Hale, Warrington) and our local area.

We can work alongside architects on developments large or small and on commercial/corporate projects, with the emphasis being on translating clients' wishes into workable schemes.

We specialise in contemporary styles which with the maximum ‘wow’ factor seem to have become the ‘norm’ over the past few years.

We aim to create that perfect outdoor living space for you, whether that's a complete garden makeover, driveway and front entrance, or a small entertaining area.

We start with a free consultation to assess your needs and just as importantly, the budget. Then, with this in mind, your project can be designed.

We can supply everything you will need, right down to the furniture and pots, beating retail prices by up to 20% or more, leaving you nothing to do but sit back, relax and enjoy the end product.

Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined how absolutely stunning my garden and Patio area would look after Gary and his team had finished. I am fussy! I knew what I wanted and I got it in abundance and then some with the space he has created.

Having had Builders at the house for 5 months I was really looking forward to the outside space being transformed and what a transformation it is, from Gary meeting us, getting to know in great detail what our preferences where and producing an amazing plan the job was executed with the utmost professionalism.

They arrived everyday regardless of the weather and worked their socks off, non stop, and cleaned up before they left in the evening. The standard of the work is 1st class and I defy anyone to find someone with as much creativity, passion and knowledge as Gary, he came up with ideas that I would never have thought of and to say I am delighted is an understatement. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Gary and his team, so much so, I have booked him to come back in the Spring to transform my front garden. Thank you Gary, it was a pleasure to have you and the team here and I am looking forward to the Spring.

Stunning !!!

A massive Thank you Gary.

From start to finish you were a true professional. The commitment and attention to detail along with your creative flare really have made a fantastic space we can use all year round. Everything that was promised was delivered and much more. To see our garden transform from a water logged patch of grass to a gorgeous contemporary outdoor space was amazing.

Would highly recommend.

Having used Gary before at my previous house. I had no hesitation in using him again. From the design stage he provided me with some terrific ideas which as you can see from the photographs came to fruition. The garden is beautiful, Gary and his team worked really hard and were low maintainance. The bricklayer was lovely too. I would have no hesitation in recommending him. Top job top team 🙂

I could not imagine how amazing our garden would look, it Is certainly a show stopper. The attention to detail is what make this project stand out and looks so professional. We couldn’t be more impressed with the result.

Gary is very creative and clearly passionate about what he does and we would be more than happy to recommend him to anyone looking for a garden transformation to be proud of. Gary spent lots of time with us getting a feel for what we liked and, perhaps more importantly, what we didn’t like. He then sent us a couple of designs and we were immediately impressed and excited about the project. Gary was very transparent about the costs involved and clearly explained the implications of choosing certain elements of a design compared to others. Once he started, his team worked hard to progress the project and finish within the timescale we discussed and the end result is a beautiful, stylish outdoor space which we can’t wait to enjoy and share with family and friends.
