A few words about us
Sandstone was born out of Owner and Designer Allister Dempster’s desire to fulfil his dream of creating and nurturing beautiful outdoor spaces. Many childhood visits to Great Dixter had fuelled this interest, and, after turning his back on the TV and film business, Ali attended Hadlow College, setting up Sandstone Garden Design and Landscaping in 1998.
Ali’s previous career, designing and creating sets in the TV and film industry, was the perfect grounding for the interpretive, creative and yet practical design skills needed to turn his clients’ dreams and aspirations into reality.
Twenty-one years and numerous wheelbarrows later, Sandstone’s reputation continues to grow. Ali now leads a highly committed team of landscapers and the company prides itself on imagination, flair, and creativity alongside good communication skills and a positive attitude.
Sandstone’s environmental policy ensures we design and create gardens that allow us to contribute, in a small way, to the conservation and sustainability of the world’s limited resources.
