Here are just a small selection of the comments we have had from some of the establishments that we have had the pleasure of working with:
St. Joseph’s RC Primary School – Hanwell, London
Unlike other suppliers we’d talked to, Eden were unique in being able to create a complete, cohesive outdoor learning environment – not just a range of standard play equipment slotted into our space at random. Throughout the whole process they were extremely professional and dedicated to meeting our brief, and the team on site were very responsive to any requests we made as the project progressed. The fact that Eden didn’t subcontract any single element of the build was very important to us to, as it ensured a seamless project from start to finish. The quality of the workmanship and the end result are superb. They came in on budget and within an agreed timescale. We would certainly highly recommend Eden to any establishment looking to create a new outdoor play space

Eden have completely transformed our outdoor play areas – both for our nursery and the primary school. We loved the natural look and feel of the designs they created for us – so different to traditional school playgrounds. It has made a huge difference to the school environment, and the children absolutely love their new play spaces. From the initial designs through to the completed projects, Eden have provided us with great service and a quality product that we couldn’t be happier with.
Paul Vine – Head Teacher
St. James Primary School – Southampton
I am not pleased….I am absolutely delighted with what the Eden team accomplished! The transformation was amazing! The whole team worked harder than any contractors we have ever had on our site, and I am in aw of what they achieved. Thank you to you and the team for all you achieved. I absolutely love all the little touches you added like the sun catchers and chimes.

Our Lady of Compassion Primary – Liverpool
Eden have created a play area for us which has absolutely delighted children and staff alike. What once was a rather bland concrete space with wooden decking has been totally transformed. There is so much more for the children to do and to learn from in their new playground. We couldn’t be happier!
Tony Houghton – Head Teacher
Mission Grove Primary School – Walthamstow, London
The work Eden Play did in our Reception outdoor space is amazing. The team who worked on site throughout the project were great – very polite, and had a real understanding of how to work around the needs of a fully operational school. Eden proved to be incredibly responsive in solving any issues that arose, and going above and beyond what I would expect based on my experience of working with previous companies. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Eden to any school looking to transform their outdoor play area.
Kate Jennings – Head Teacher
Rowan Park – Liverpool
Rowan Park is a school that meets the needs of children with severe, complex, profound and multiple learning difficulties. So when choosing a supplier to create an outdoor learning environment, it was important for us to work with a company that truly understood the needs of our pupils. Our staff and pupils collaborated with Eden to create a design which ensured our children would get the most from their time outdoors. The whole Eden team worked tirelessly to transform a flat empty field into a space that will continue to delight the children in our care for years to come.
Karen Lynskey – Head Teacher
St. Joseph’s RC Primary School – Islington, London
Without question I would recommend Eden to other schools. They clearly wanted to provide the very best for us and our children. The team on site were exemplary – probably the best contractors I’ve ever worked alongside. They understood the needs of the children and the school, and their workmanship was excellent – the quality was to the very highest standard.

I just wanted to say how pleased we are with the product and how well the team managed the whole construction process, and how hard they worked right up to the fading daylight!!! Our 3 year old couldn’t wait to get out on it at 8am yesterday and keeps telling his friends all about his new “playhouse”. Thanks again – we feel we have a really professionally made product thta was fitted by a really professional team and we will be passing on our recommendations!”
Kidz Kabin Day Nursery – Muswell Hill, London
Opening a brand new nursery meant we needed that extra something to give us the edge over other pre-school settings in the locality. Eden has transformed our outdoor area from a barren concrete playground to an innovative outdoor learning environment. Nothing is too much trouble for the Eden team. Creativity and quality are second to none. I am confident that every child will benefit from the fantastic opportunities provided by this fabulous concept in early years, combining nature and imagination to provide endless hours of fun.

St. Luke’s CE Primary School – Formby, Merseyside
e.den has absolutely transformed our Foundation Stage playspace from a flat, bare tarmac to a multi-level, multi-sensory outdoor learning environment that is irresistible to our youngest learners. The detail of the design, the landscaping and the various features are all excellent and took account of the teachers’ and pupils’ requirements. After-sales services has also been exceptional, with nothing being too much trouble. I would recommend e.den to any school considering a project to improve the quality of play and language development opportunities.
Sharon Cowey – Headteacher
Lander Road Primary School – Litherland, Merseyside
We are absolutely delighted with our new outdoor provision for the Foundation Stage. An ugly piece of tarmac has been transformed into an innovative, attractive and hard wearing space where children can explore, play, exercise and learn. The response from our staff, our parents, and the children themselves is overwhelmingly positive. It is hard to bring the children indoors, even in heavy rain. I can highly recommend e.den for their professional approach from the design stage through to the end product and they provided excellent value for money too.

Churchtown Primary School – Southport, Merseyside
It is with great pleasure I am able to endorse the outstanding work carried out by Dave Colville’s Eden Play company at Churchtown Primary School. We commissioned his services after being impressed by the quality of his previous work and the natural look for the environments he created. From the outset he designed a pupil friendly and stimulating outdoor environment. He adapted our ideas and produced a highly effective area. The construction worked effectively and the quality of materials was of the highest standard. If you are looking to display a high quality outdoor living environment, his experience and specialist knowledge will assist you to create a truly unique, well planned and great value project.
The proof is always in the customer views which have been fantastic and shared by governors and parents. The follow up service has been excellent and we also have an area now which includes effective storage and will have low maintenance for years to come. I am so impressed with the standard of this work that I will be prepared to show other potential customers around the facility by making a mutually convenient appointment. A highly satisfied customer.

Millstead Primary School – Everton, Merseyside
The children and staff of Millstead are absolutely delighted with the new play area. Your mission statement of “Where child’s play comes naturally” really does come to life when we see our children playing everyday on this wonderful equipment. I would like to take this opportunity to commend you and the staff who represented e.den whilst here on site; the young gentlemen are an absolute credit to not only themselves but the company; nothing was too much trouble for them, they were smart in their appearance, polite and courteous at all times along with being very aware of their surroundings and the needs of our children. You provided us with your expertise and time always making yourself available to visit or talk to us. It has been a delight working with yourselves and we have no hesitation in recommending e.den.
