About John Hill

John has extensive experience within the construction, groundworks, drainage and landscaping sectors, and worked for a large construction company and a local landscape contractor before starting his own business. He had a long association with a renowned local garden centre, for whom he undertook many and varied projects.

In addition to working from existing plans and drawings, John also crafts bespoke structures and features for clients onsite, such as outdoor rooms, log stores, storage containers and water features.

About Katie Thomas

Katie is our principal garden designer, and has been designing a wide variety of gardens for over six years. She is passionate about designing creative, yet practical solutions. Katie is also a keen artist and loves creating hand drawn, real to life perspective sketches to help clients visualise her designs.

Where we’ve come from

ALDA Landscapes was established in 2006 by garden designer Alison Tipping together with current owner John Hill. Both had a wealth of experience in their respective fields, and had worked for many years independently (Alison as ALDA Design, and John as Hills Landscapes) before combining forces.

From the outset, the goal was to provide a consistently excellent design and construction service and over the years ALDA Landscapes has become established as one of Berkshire’s leading garden design companies. Our reputation for strong, practical design combined with stellar construction and excellent customer service has enabled us to grow the business on a firm footing and we’ve not looked back since.

In 2017, we were pleased to welcome Katie Thomas on board as a garden designer, and Katie worked alongside Alison until Alison’s retirement in 2019, with Katie then taking over as principal designer. Alison and Kate’s shared outlook in terms of design approach and strong customer service has meant that we’re able to continue to provide a first class design and construction service to old and new clients alike.

We are delighted with the work all the team put into our project. Thanks so much to ALL of you – you’ve been a great team and we would recommend your services.
