Designing your garden is all about making the most of the space surrounding your home. It is a genuine investment, as creating extra, attractive living space nearly always increases the value and saleability of your property.
The first step is to invite me to your garden and briefly discuss your ideas, and see what services I can offer you that are appropriate to your needs and budget. This is usually a free visit where we can talk about the design process and your wish list. You may decide you only need a consultation, which is still a worthwhile exercise as it enables you to form longer term plans.
Fully exploring your requirements will save you time and money in the long run, and experience shows that, even on the smallest of gardens, having a full design, a good landscaper and a project manager is well worth the investment.
Designs are always hand drawn and tailored to the needs of each client. I work with you to create your garden and together we make it a special place. It can be functional on so many levels: delivering extra storage space and hiding unsightly services; providing a refuge for wildlife; a stress free sanctuary for the overworked and bringing back happy memories by celebrating life through the senses.
I like to use natural materials where possible and enjoy the challenge of re-using what is already in the garden or salvaged from another. You might enjoy commissioning new artwork from local sculptors, stone workers and blacksmiths or re-purposing a treasured possession. Everyone is different; and so is every garden. I really enjoy, and look forward to, creating spaces that are individual to you.
I am based between Bude and Launceston in North Cornwall, England. I already serve many clients in the South West, and am happy to travel to Padstow and Rock as well as Exeter and Plymouth or West Cornwall.
