We design spaces which are beautiful, manageable and good for people and the environment. We offer a full garden design service for small gardens, courtyards and patios ranging from refreshing your courtyard pots to large perennial border.
We aim to keep the design process straightforward and take a real pleasure in every stage - from the initial consultation right through to maintanance follow-up visits.
Our design ethos is to work with the opportunities and constraints offered by the site and to develop strong 'bones' and a design language which matches your lifestyle: In smaller spaces every element has to work hard, so we focus on the details, ensuring that everything is in the right place and fulfills its purpose. Having lived for many years in the Southern Hemisphere and Caribbean, we also bring our experience of practical, stylish outdoor living with us.
Our planting designs are seasonal and successional ensuring that there is always structure, colour and texture throughout the year. We use mainly perennials, many grown by ourselves and a network of local growers.
We also recognise that many do not always require a full design service and so we offer a one-off two hour consultation service in order to develop 'quick & dirty' solutions and advice.
Our two hour service comprises off:
Completing a detailed questionnaire about your garden and design ideas.
Visitng your garden for a one hour consulting meeting where I share my ideas to bring coherence through design and planting ideas which are practical and effective.
Pulling together my recommendations into a quick design sketch of your garden with planting ideas, a plant 'master' list and a written summary of my suggestions. We can also help with sourcing plants and other components of your garden.
