Wiltshire Garden Designer, Jill Blackwood, RHS Medal, provides bespoke and professional garden design in Swindon and surrounding areas across Wiltshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire.  Jill’s hand drawn garden designs combine the textural elements of garden design with the year-round colour and scent of creative planting plans.

With decades of experience in Landscape Design and as a Landscape Gardener, Jill has extensive knowledge and enthusiasm for plants and garden landscaping and this shines out in her garden designs.  Clients are provided with a garden plan that ensures their garden build is softened and enhanced with the beauty of nature.  Garden planting design is a key element in every garden and Jill believes that planting must be considered from the very start of garden planning to ensure unity and balance in the completed garden design.

Jill ensures that your garden planting fits with your maintenance requirements, whether you require a low maintenance garden or you’re an enthusiastic gardener.

Through thoughtful garden design, Jill aims to create inspirational and relaxing gardens for her clients.  Not only to enhance their lives and homes, but also to help nurture our wildlife and the environment.

Born in Cornwall Jill was enthusiastic about wildlife and gardening from an early age.  She studied garden design over a number of years and attained a Distinction in a Post Graduate Diploma in Garden Design.

Her RHS award-winning show garden, ‘A Bonnie Burn’, included a bespoke water feature with a waterfall and gentle stream, constructed using glacial boulders.  The stream nestled in an undulating wildflower meadow, surrounded by native trees and shrubs.  Jill designed the show garden to illustrate how we can all ‘do our bit’ by creating a sanctuary for wildlife in our gardens to protect and nurture our native species.  The garden was awarded a Royal Horticultural Society Silver Medal and featured on BBC Gardeners World.

Jill aims to ensure a personal and professional garden design service from start to finish.  Firstly an in-depth consultation to assess your wishes and desires for your garden.  A concept plan is then produced for discussion along with ideas for materials and planting.  Finally clients are provided with a detailed, scaled garden plan and an illustrated, informative planting plan.  Jill can give you details of builders who have built her gardens over the years, who can provide you with an estimate for your garden construction.   Jill can also provide details of a landscape gardener that has planted most of her gardens, who can provide an estimate for planting your garden and can also offer ongoing garden maintenance once the garden planting is completed.

Jill provides a bespoke garden design for every client and all garden styles are catered for including  traditional, country, cottage, rustic, courtyard, wildlife, water features, vegetable and modern/contemporary garden design.

Over the last twenty years Jill has provided bespoke and professional garden design in Swindon, Wiltshire and surrounding areas, designing hundreds of gardens for delighted customers.  Clients are assured of a professional service that will meet their individual requirements.
