Professional & Bespoke Garden Plan/Design

Balancing beauty and leisure with wildlife and the environment 

RHS Medal Award

Professional garden design is an essential ingredient to achieving your dream garden.  Besides adding value to your home, a well-thought garden plan will provide an attractive and practical additional living space.

Using a Garden Designer will help to focus your ideas and the possibilities of your garden to ensure a unified overall design that considers your wishes, necessities and tastes.  Consideration is also given to the constraints of your garden and your budget, helping you to avoid haphazard, rash and costly mistakes.

Whether you use Jill’s suggested builders, your builders or do the work yourself, a professional garden plan will help ensure a clear idea of what the garden will look like and the costs involved; before you embark on the project.

Jill is available for advice throughout your garden design process and is happy to return to your completed garden to give further advice on aftercare for your plants, to help ensure your garden continues to flourish and mature.
