This stunning period property had a rather sad looking front garden when I first met with owners Charlie and Emma. Rosemary Beetle had infested the Rosemary prostratus, old pea shingle over the years had mixed with the impacted infertile soil and a sorry looking aged Lavender Hidcote had seen better days.

“Rachel is an extremely talented horticulturist and gifted garden designer. When our front garden needed some tender loving care Rachel came up with a fantastic design that matched our brief to a T.


The garden planning, purchasing and execution took place with very little mess, disturbance and time. The result was really beautiful and many passers by, friends and neighbours have commented on how good it looks. Every year it just gets better and better. We were so happy with our front garden we then asked Rachel to tackle our rear garden making use of the many plants that we have and like, whilst introducing a scheme that lifted the more drab corners and bought the garden back to life. Her knowledge of plants is extraordinary and she has a natural eye for what will good. She really listens to what you want and like before coming up with her designs, creating a garden that it's a pleasure to spend time in. 


I couldn't recommend her highly enough.
