Hi, I’m Robert, and welcome to my website, Robert Hughes Garden Landscaping and Construction

I provide quality hard and soft garden landscaping service for gardens of all sizes, large and small, in the Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Huntingdonshire, and Peterborough areas.

Whether you’re looking for a quality driveway, new patio, decorative water feature or pond, fencing or decorative woodwork (e.g. a pergola), a new decking area, or any other kind of garden landscaping service, I’ve got the experience and happy customers to assure you I’m the man for the job.

I also provide a mini digger and driver hire service, offering an incredibly cost-effective way of preparing your garden for your own DIY garden project.

Quality garden landscaping lasts a lifetime…

Having a great-looking garden as you see on TV is most homeowners’ dream. You need a garden that not only looks great but is enjoyed by the whole family, for years to come.

I do everything your garden needs to look great – from preparing the ground to laying the bricks and creating your dream garden. I provide the professional service you need to turn your ideas into reality.

With a passion for this line of work, and a keen eye for detail that permeates into everything I do – from the groundwork preparation to laying the first brick, to pressure washing the whole garden at the very end to ensure it is spotless – you can be sure of a quality job well done that will last for years to come.

You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for a garden landscaping service provider who not only knows the subtle differences between a good job and an exceptional job but who also wants you, the customer, to know what those differences are.

A picture speaks a thousand words where quality garden landscaping is concerned, so please browse through my portfolio of existing work I’ve completed. And don’t just take my word for it; have a look through some of my reviews.

I’d love to speak with you about how we can make your dream garden come true, so get in touch today. Feel free to call on 01480 470448 or 07753 911329, email me, or get in touch via the contact form.

N

Quality workmanship

I offer all aspects of hard and soft landscape gardening services, including driveways, paving, decking, mini digger and drive hire, and a professional pressure-washing service

Paving, patios, and brickwork

Paving, patios, and brickwork make up a large part of my regular projects. Whether it’s Indian sandstone paving, block/brick paving, manufactured concrete paving, and any of the various materials available, you can be sure of an experienced and quality job that will last for years.

Driveways: brick and block paved driveways and shingle driveways

I construct driveways to the highest quality, giving as much attention-to-detail for what goes in the ground as I do for the finished driveway you see. After all, what good is a driveway that sinks?

I offer a range of different driveways, depending on your needs and budget. Block paved driveways offer an attractive and practical option, while simple shingle driveways with an attractive brick or block border offer an incredibly cost-effective way of transforming your front garden into a fully usable driveway.

Whichever type you choose, I’ve got years of experience and plenty of happy customers to make you certain I’m the man for the job.

Mini garden digger and driver hire

Want to DIY your garden project but require some help with the heavy digging? My rubber-tracked mini garden digger is only 700mm (70cm) wide and will go through a garden gate – I’ve even taken it through a house before!

One full days’ service with the mini garden digger and operator will achieve more than hand-digging could achieve in several weeks. Why spend your free time endlessly digging away when I could achieve what you need in a fraction of the time?

Decking

I am an expert at fitting quality decking, constructing a solid base for your deck that will last for years, and expertly cutting the decking to guarantee the best finish possible. I can either leave it in its natural colour, or stain it with a stain colour of your choice.

I provide standard decking services, but can also construct railway sleeper decking areas; if you have a large space and are looking to make a bold statement, a railway sleeper decking area could be the perfect addition to your garden.

Pebble mosaics in paving areas

If you’re looking to add interest to an area of paving, pebble mosaics could be a good option. The design and patterns are endless – just use your imagination!

Fencing and decorative woodwork

Ensuring your fence is completely level and so well constructed that it will stand up to any abuse the Great British weather can throw at it is my top priority

Ponds and decorative water features

Want to bring some wildlife into your garden, or to enjoy the sound of free-flowing water? Ponds or decorative water features can really bring your garden to life!

Professional pressure washing

Make your garden or driveway look brand new again, with my industrial-strength water-based professional pressure washing service – all without chemicals!

30 years ago we asked Rob to build us a new patio which he did to a very high standard.

30 years on, we are still in the same house and wanted to upgrade the patio.

We wondered who to ask then found Rob’s website and knew he was the man for the job. Another high-quality job successfully completed by a true craftsman and if the last one is anything to go by will certainly outlast us!

    Rob took very good care of getting the mini digger in and out through our neighbours property, there is no trace of it. His mini digger skills are fantastic and we have exactly what we were looking for in our garden. He's also full … More of knowledge and experience that helped us decide the design of the garden. Rob is very easy to get on with and lovely to work with. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
  • Avatar Philip Wainwright ★★★★★ a month ago
    Robert went the extra mile to complete our patio to a very high standard.
    We are delighted with his work and would recommend him to anyone.
    We are already booking him in for more work.
    Thanks again Rob

    Rob managed to complete 20m of trenching for a new hedge; stump removal, levelling and digging a new soakaway hole, trenching for driveway drainage and even fitted in two massive tree planting holes, all in a day! He is prompt, personable, … More knowledgeable and very skilled with a mini digger. Don't even think about renting one and doing it yourself, call Rob.
  • Avatar Craig Osgerby ★★★★★ a year ago
    We used Rob to come and level out our rear garden and remove a large concrete path. Rob did a brilliant job, worked hard and completed the work in a day. As this was part of a DIY job, Rob was more than helpful with tips and advice along … More the way. We found his prices extremely competitive and would highly recommend Rob for future projects.
