A neighbour used Jane and posted her design on our WhatsApp group,that's how we came to find her and wow I absolutely love our garden. We had a meeting where Jane asked lots of questions, and to be honest I didn't really know the answers to , I just knew what I didn't like about our garden and wanted something that my husband and I could do ourselves, so didn't want anything that was outside our capabilities, so waiting for Janes design was nervous anticipation , and she certainly didn't disappoint it had everything I wanted , it was simple but effective it was definitely hard work but well worth it ,and working to Jane's design was easy even for a couple of novice's. If your on the fence about using a garden designer then take the plunge you won't be disappointed , I think Jane read my mind to be fair , I will definitely use her again if we move house Thank you so much Jane

The Company was recommended to me. I had no idea what I wanted but had a few things I wanted including in the design. Jane asked lots of questions and came up with the perfect design. We spoke about the timescale of the work to be done, and this was kept to. The work is of top quality. I also like the leaflet she produced showing me what all the plants are and what I need to do with them to keep them healthy. Everyone who worked in the garden were professional and got the jobs done. I would definitely recommend them.

We had our garden completely redesigned by Jane and her team and what an amazing job! It has had a complete makeover - some really innovative features that I would never have though of and she really understood waht we were looking for. A very friendly but professional approach and lovely designs drawn up, that are a nice keepsake. All the materials used were of a very good quality and her landscape team were very reliable and hard working. Got the job done to time and cleared up well afterwards. A year on and the garden still looks amazing and that's no thanks to our own gardening skills as we have hardly had to touch it, which was just what we needed! The dogs love it too, especially the journey through the garden which I had never even thought about before ! Thanks Jane!

Working with Jane is like going on an exciting adventure. Our first consultation included a questionnaire which highlighted what colours, textures etc we were looking to incorporate in our garden, so very thorough, when Jane left we could not wait for her to come back with her ideas. When Jane presented us with her vision, not just one but 3 of them, we were bowled over, all the things we had talked about and so much more, we felt comfortable to make a few little tweaks which Jane encouraged our feedback and made us feel that there was complete flexibility throughout, we decided on the design and Jane returned with a mood board and a plant list. Over the weeks the garden began to take shape and when we faced a few little challenges, Jane took away any concerns and gave us the confidence that all would be well and indeed it was! We cannot thank Jane enough she has been incredible, and our amazing space has turned into an extension of our house, we cannot wait for the summer to come along and we can spend many a day/evening enjoying what has been created for us with our family and friends! Jane thank you so much for all your hard work, your determination and your amazing ability to understand what we wanted when we did not.

I was so pleased to have Jane come and design my garden for me. She was very personable, extremely helpful and an all round lovely lady. She drew her design and then ask me various questions to enable her to adapt it where necessary. She even put me in contact with a landscaper to come and put her design into practice. The best thing I have found is that she keeps checking in with me about how everything is going and what she can do to help. I would highly recommend her as a reputable garden designer.

Jane designed our garden in Spring 2019. Jane visited our house and spent several hours with us measuring, planning and then drawing some lovely designs. She offered 3 versions, from which we selected one that we liked most, which she developed further. She took into consideration the soil type, sun aspect, our preferences in terms of level of maintenance and lifestyle as well as personal taste.She also offered advice on how we could approach the landscaping work and how much it would cost if we did some work ourselves compared with using a gardening company. She followed up with mood boards, tips and advice on various decisions we needed to make. We've used her detailed plan throughout the development, albeit with small amendments. The result is a beautiful and cosy garden that we are very proud of and happy with.
