It all started with our Director Mike. He’s worked in the hard landscaping industry for over 16 years and after completing his university degree in Architectural Technology with design, decided to start Aura.

Aura Landscapes was launched in February 2010 and the last 8 years has seen a large amount of outdoor spaces being built, hundreds of hand drawn garden designs (courtesy of Mike) and being acknowledged for our high quality of work with multiple awards being won year on year.

We pride ourselves on superior quality from concept to design to installation, so you not only love the look of your outdoor space but can enjoy it for many years to come.

First class service

Our entire team are highly experienced, knowledgeable and trained to a high standard. We’re the perfect partner in creating a garden design, patio or driveway to suit your needs, and seeing this through to completion, ensuring we exceed your expectations along the way.

Customer satisfaction

We would be heartbroken to learn of a dissatisfied customer; and we ensure this never happens. Working hand-in-hand with you, we’ll make sure you are happy at every step of the way. This includes the design of the garden itself, from concept through to build. Your input is paramount; we are here to give you the outdoor space you are dreaming of, so any questions or concerns you may have are listened to and acted upon.

Quality all the way

This is something we never compromise on. If we did, it wouldn’t allow us to continue to deliver with pride, and it certainly wouldn’t give you the best results. We always install to British Standard guidelines; adhere to surface water legislation that was introduced in 2008; and we hold a certificate in SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage). In addition, we only use Marshalls products which are of the very best quality. We offer a five year guarantee on our craftsmanship, and as Marshall’s Approved Installers, we are also able to provide a ten year product guarantee for their products. Our accreditations are important to us and ensure you get complete peace of mind in your investment.
