A note on gardens ...
In an ever more hectic world you need somewhere to relax. A private space to call your own - a place to think your own thoughts, stepping out from the pressures of your everyday obligations, and to simply be yourself.
For some people, this means having a tranquil place to enjoy in peace - for others it's a garden for entertaining and enjoying with family and friends, or for making a home for nature, or for growing your own produce.
Whatever your ideal garden, we will help you achieve it by creating a design that meets your specific needs while fulfilling your idea of a little piece of paradise, whatever that means to you personally.
There are many different types of people and so there are many different types of garden. We all have different expectations and ideas - and if we are honest, different budgets available to use on creating your ideal outside space. It's important to spend your time and money wisely to get you as close as possible to the garden you picture yourself enjoying when you close your eyes and imagine it.
People have always been connected to the land around them and the environment in which they live. With our increasingly busy lives, now more than ever, we need gardens to reconnect us to the world around us, giving us a sense of place and belonging by creating what I see as the most important room in the home.
