The Story

How Aura Landscapes came to be one of the best outdoor space design and installation companies over the last decade.

Mike Warman
Director & Landscaper

It all started with Mike. After completion of his degree in Architectural Technology with Design, and years of landscaping experience, Mike decided to launch Aura Landscapes in 2010. His award-winning hand-drawn garden designs and installations put Aura Landscapes on the map and paved the way for the exciting journey ahead.

Paula Warman
Managing Director

Back in 2012, Mike asked Paula to join Aura Landscapes at his side and they have never looked back. With a wealth of experience in business management, marketing and customer service, Paula helped instil Mike’s passion for outdoor areas into the core of the business and has developed Aura Landscapes into the company it is today.

Luke McKay

After joining Aura Landscapes in 2014 as an apprentice, Luke successfully completed his Level 3 Certificate in Horticulture whilst learning the very best from Mike. You can learn more about his journey here, and how he flourished into the highly skilled landscaper he is today.


Andy Kirk
Lead Designer

Recently joining us to continue the evolution of Aura Landscapes, Andy’s flair for creativity and passion for 2D & 3D CAD design is second to none. His experience has also helped develop Aura Landscapes’ offering to you, with soft planting schemes now available to accompany your design.

Jack Manthorpe
Landscaping Labourer

Joining us in 2021, Jack is part of Mike’s installation team.

Finley Sodergren
Landscaping Labourer

Your first-class experience from initial consultation, through to completion of your outdoor space.


Paula will be your initial point of contact following your enquiry and help to book in your initial consultation with Andy.

At this initial consultation, Andy will discuss your ideas, measure the area, and discuss your requirements for the outdoor space. Andy will offer expert advice and insight into the practicalities of your installation, as well as how we will turn your dream into a reality.

Second Consultation

Following your initial consultation, Andy will gather your quote and design your outdoor space (if a garden design package is chosen). He will then re-visit you to finalise the design, products, and project timeline.


Now it is time to put our highly skilled landscaping team to work! Mike will be on site during your project to assist and oversee the team and to ensure everything is running smoothly to plan from start to finish.

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.
