Meet the crew

Established 2001 in Farnham, Surrey and based in Richmond for 5 years, Mambo Gardens is run by experienced garden designer and landscaper Simon Phillips. Simon has spent 15 years studying and working alongside expert plantsmen, qualified arborists, carpenters, bricklayers and landscapers of all trades to grow Mambo Gardens. We have built a reliable name in the local community which is reflected by our expertise and dedication to creating lasting vibrant outdoor spaces for people to enjoy.

With over ten years experience working in town and country gardens we are able to provide you with an outstanding garden design, landscaping and maintenance services in Kent. We will work with you to create a garden you can enjoy.

We offer expert advice on the right combination of plants to use in your garden and can advise on and carry out any pruning and training of existing plants. Whether it is woodwork, brickwork, patio and path design or planting, we are able to improve your garden to your satisfaction.

When it comes to gardening, Mambo Gardens has a lot to offer and we guarantee fantastic results. Whatever the nature of the project, we will work hard to get it done. We have many happy clients past and present across Kent and surrounding areas.

Our ethos

We like to think global and act local, thereby minimising our carbon footprint by working with a network of local businesses including Elmwood Fencing, for our timber, Sheen Builders for landscape supplies, and fantastic local nursery The Palm Centre. This is a convenient and inspiring way for us to choose materials together with you. Where possible we endeavour to incorporate reclaimed materials in our projects, creating something truly unique. We are focussed on creating a garden for the future.

Working together to create your garden

We offer an initial site visit for free, when Simon will come and talk through your garden requirements. However large or small the project, we are happy to discuss options to fulfil your garden needs. It helps to have an idea of your budget at this point so we can consider appropriate materials and planting. A plan and quotation is then drafted and emailed.

With a number of garden projects completed, there are many current satisfied customers of Mambo Gardens. By viewing our work in the gallery, you can get a feel for our style of garden design and ideas for your own property. Follow us on facebook and keep up to date with our latest projects or simply give us a call and we'll be happy to talk through your garden ideas.

Our goal

We pride ourselves on delivering a friendly, reliable and high quality service. We work flexibly and believe that good communication with our clients is the key to a successful project. We try to take the stress away from having work done at your home. We aim to build your garden as a part of your home which will be robust and keep giving interest and variety for years to come.

Our sister site

Simon is an experienced traveller and journalist and has documented his work over at elusive.world. Elusiveworld is concerned with experiential growth through travel to remote areas. Valuing the insights of people from other places, particularly indigenous to wilderness environments, elusiveworld is a great blog on which to read stories from little known corners of the world. Much inspiration is brought back to urban gardening from these trips during the winter months .
