Welcome to Actual Landscapes

A talented team with talented leaders

Actual Landscapes has evolved from a diversity of skills provided by the individual employees. This has enabled the construction of a multi-talented and experienced team of landscape artists led by Rory Tompsett a fully qualified HND Landscape Science Principal with 30 years of landscape based experience.

Actual Landscapes recognise that developing skills and competence at all levels requires investment in its staff. Actual Landscapes has an on-going evaluation and training programme in conjunction with the Coleg Cambria and Work Based Learning Programmes – two of the staff have won Learner of the Year awards.

The Design Team is lead by Rory Tompsett (HND Landscape Science & Design) who provide a creative, qualified and experienced team who understand client requirements and the full implications of installation techniques.

The entire process comes under one roof, reducing the dilution of the design principles that can happen when dealing with separate designers and contractors.

Actual Landscapes in Action

Doing what we do best

Actual Landscapes’ work is continually checked and monitored to ensure installations are kept to quality assured standards and backed up with the Marshall’s 10-year guarantee. Show gardens (including Tatton Park), and specialist help from Naoki Goto (7 years training in Kyoto) have helped Actual Landscapes realise specialist Japanese garden styles.

What our Customers Said

We requested something a bit different, in that we wanted a garden with Japanese themes. Rory listened really carefully and took that forward, creating a design that he then put into play with real enthusiasm and inspiration.

The team were fantastic- so friendly, incredibly hardworking, and conscientious. They were also very thoughtful when dealing with our neighbours, which we really appreciated.

The result couldn’t have delighted us more- we are so thrilled and look forward to seeing the garden settle in and grow as the years go by. It’s a wonderful space for our family.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and however big or small your project, you are bound to be very happy!

Katherine Nolan

We asked Rory and his team to give us something a little different. Rory listened to what we wanted and came up with an inspired design. Then he became our project manager as his team turned design into reality. A great bunch of guys. Friendly and trustworthy and they really know what they are doing! Highly recommended.

David Nolan Spilsbury

Absolutely delighted with the garden tranformation Rory and his team carried out for us. From the initial consultation right through to the final flag being laid I cannot fault Actual Landscapes! I found the whole team to be hard-working, professional and considerate. I would highly recommend! Thank you.

Catherine Dodd

From initial consultation to finished article I cannot fault Rory and the lads from Actual Landscapes. We started off with 4 concepts which we then tweaked and fine tuned to find the perfect garden and it was executed to a really high standard. The team who created my garden (shout out to Steve, Sam and Mike) were a pleasure to deal with and my neighbours actually miss having them around! I am so chuffed with my new garden, it went from dried out wilderness to lush green haven in a matter of weeks and I now have a perfect spot to chill out on sunny days. The cats love it too!

Elly Wallis

We would like to thank Rory and his team – Steve, Sam, Mikee, Callum and George – for the work done to transform our tired and unfriendly back garden into one we can be proud of and able to enjoy.

From the design stage to the final jet wash the job has been carried out extremely professionally and we are so happy with the end results.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Actual Landscapes for any landscaping project.

Actual Landscapes are superb. I had the front of my property redesigned by Rory and the team and I was blown away by the forward-thinking designs and practical ideas. The result was stunning and I can’t recommend them highly enough. The installation team were extremely accommodating, polite and hard working.

You can trust Actual Landscapes, 5* Quality

Luxurious Contemporary Garden With Hot Tub ...

Multi Level Terrace Garden Transformation using Marshall’s Symphony Urban Ash / Birch Plank & Deco Matte Porcelain Paving along with Neo Quartzite Drystack Cladding to the Walls.
Welsh Larch Pergola and slatted screens add height and privacy and the Stunning Water Feature gently soothes and adds calms the space. The house and outdoor space are seamlessly connected with the Porcelain Paving and Bifold Doors, which lead to the Hot Tub and upper Dining Area.
Clever use of Mirrors against the black fence increase the depth perception and tie in with the Globe Water Feature.

It’s always bitter sweet the last hour of the RHS Tatton Flower Show…you spend 2yrs of your life allowing a Show Garden to become part of you, the rollercoaster ride of the build, the pressure, problems, solutions, beautiful garden creations, new friends and laughs aplenty…and then the bun fight of the sell off…pulling apart the art you’ve created, shared and connected with the masses. But that’s the Magic.…the Magic of The Moment and then…pffff…it’s gone but the memories live on forever!! Thank you @rhstatton_showteam for another belter of a Show and special thanks to @emilie.bausager.landscapes for allowing us to be part of something special!
