Lorna and Cathy were great fun to work with. They included all we wanted in our garden design which was creative and practical, low maintenance and now a thing of ongoing pleasure for us.

I wish to thank you for the wonderful romantic garden you created for us. All stages of the planning, building and planting were handled with a professionalism hard to find. Your tradesmen have been a pleasure to have around the house, and no inconvenience was experienced during the six weeks they were here. My only regret is that I don’t have another garden for you to design.

I was sitting in our beautiful front garden soaking up some sunshine yesterday.  It was lovely to sit and appreciate it from another angle.  Thank you so much for the wonderful transformation.  The jobs list is complete and we are happy with everything.
