What / Who is your garden for?
How do you want to use your garden? Do you want to enjoy the view of it from the house? Relax, work or play in it? Entertain in it? Cut flowers from it? Grow food in it? Your garden is part of your individual space and, like every other room in your home, it needs to be arranged and decorated to suit you.
I recognise the individuality of each of my clients. I listen carefully to their wishes for their garden and discuss the different requirements they have for the space. The gardens I create are uniquely tailored to suit the person or family they are created for.
The first master plan is only the initial step in a process of dialogue between designer and client, if there are things the client is not happy with, alterations are made, at no extra cost, until the garden owner has a design which fully meets their brief.
Please have a good look at this website, I hope there are things in it you like. But don’t forget that they were created to suit the space and the owner. Your needs are almost certainly different …and if you ask me to help create your garden I will produce a bespoke design to fit your wishes, budget and lifestyle. I will then work with you to translate the design into reality.
If you don’t want a full design but want help with a particular part, a planting plan for an awkward corner, advice as to how to blend different features together, I would be happy to be of assistance.
Contact me to discuss how I can help you get more pleasure from your garden.
