Phillip Ellis-Lead landscaper

Welcome to The Cambridge Landscaper


Hello and welcome to our website. I am Phil, the project manager and lead designer. On summary:

  • I am qualified in garden design
  • we have a solid workflow to manage bespoke design cost expectation
  • we have a track record of quality installations
  • we have a quality focused culture
  • we have a professional and experienced team that workshops each project
  • we are domestic specialists (commercial is a different style and level of detail)
  • we have a good client interaction process
  • we are a multi skilled team

Vision statement:

  • To consistently and systematically deliver what the client can reasonably expect.
  • To be creative in our design process.
  • To offer value for the large budgets we deal with through quality management and workmanship.
  • To create a culture of technical excellence and strive to continually deliver beautiful outdoor living spaces.

My co-workers and I are an enthusiastic, well experienced, team with skills and expertise in many areas of landscape design and construction, we offer creativity and professionalism, deployed in a way that makes it easy to develop your dreams into a reality. We have worked in prestigious properties such as The Rectory in Landbeach, Jacksons Barn, Sturmer, The Warren in Letchworth Garden City, Gothic House in Cottenham, and have built up a reputation with local staff of the University. 

I am afraid that a large majority of our enquiries have a very poor expectation of cost so we try and manage these early through remote meetings. It's an age old problem that domestic land based industries are unfortunately very undervalued and that's simply why there is so many cheap contractors and horrendous outcomes up and down every street in the UK - for a decent project we must pre qualify our clients pro actively . 

We specialise in domestic projects which require the most attention to detail. I understand how to approach a project with a creative outlook, thorough survey which ensures no rise in prices, and offer the attention to detail required. 

My team and I have built up incredible in house technical knowledge over the last 5 years as well as industry contacts including two architects and designers, an amazing horticulturalist and all the best places to obtain our materials from.

A landscaper is a multi-skilled role, including expertise in design and style, structural integrity, building, carpentry, water management, project management and team communication skills. I pay my team well and we deliver time after time because we are just this: experienced and skilled. This is who we are. 

Twinned with their individual skill sets and professional backgrounds we have a unique ability to deliver a full suite of hard and soft landscaping services making for a successful and bespoke project. Because I only work with my trusted and skilled team we can uniquely take on small projects or large installations, offering a holistic and unparalleled level of quality and service.  Check out our process by clicking here

What you can expect to receive by engaging services with us: 

  • professional and passionate attitude
  • attention to detail in workmanship
  • transparent quotes
  • great creativity, design and communication during projects
  • great outcomes as we are a small dedicated team
  • a full suite of hard and soft landscaping skillets in my team to cater for your needs

I have a particular passion for attention to detail, and enjoy working with new materials and especially enjoy always seeing the finished project and reaction of my customers (I even had a customer cry and hug me when their pond was completed and they arrived home from work). 

We have worked now in the Cambridge city area professionally for over 5 years and have a long list of happy clients. I have been offering gardening services since I was 11 in the villages where I grew up, and worked with a reputable local builder as a teenager. I really get a thrill from designing beautiful spaces.

Gardens are a special place and can be a space for family, reflection, peace, community and getting in touch with your body and mind through physical activity. A special place where relationships form with ourselves, people, nature and the fascinating universe - becoming more in balance from the ever revolving world of our modern lifestyles. 

Please see our portfolio for examples of our work.

I look forward to meeting with you to understand your requirements and get your project underway; whether it is a traditional wall or decking, new paving space, felling a tree, or a complete overhaul we will do everything we can to exceed your expectations.

You're in good hands with The Cambridge Landscaper.
