We bring a range of expertise and experience to every garden we work on. Graham is a horticulturist and garden architect with more than 30 years experience. Amber is an experienced gardener and an expert in contemporary designs. The combination of experience and youth ensures our designs are both practical and innovative. Above all, we have great knowledge and a love of plants and gardens. Graham will be able to identify the plants in your garden and advise you on how to get the best out of them. Just an hour in your garden with Graham or Amber would be invaluable and save you time and money.
Although we do not build the gardens ourselves, we have preferred landscape gardeners, or landscapers, who have been building from our garden designs for many years. This leaves us free to represent the client and ensure the work is carried out to the highest standards.
We will work with you to create the garden you want. 'It would not be right for us to experiment in people's gardens, so we work around what is there and only incorporate what we know will work'.
We use traditional techniques designed to make a garden feel comfortable and roomy. Couple this with a desire to ensure the construction is carried out to a high standard, that the new area is practical and easy to look after, and you will have a good idea of what we aim to achieve.
The garden design is only the first stage in the process of creating a garden. Construction, obtaining the plants, planting and maintenance are all important elements and we give assistance at every stage. We have other services which can be seen on our Services page.

We would strongly endorse Graham’s work. He produced a beautiful design for our garden which creates corners and areas of interest and changing colours throughout the year. The flowers are unusual with beautiful combinations of colour and scent. A small investment for a daily injection of happiness..
"Graham's support throughout the brainstorm, design, construction and finishing has been superb. He has designed both my front and back garden and supported me over the course of 12 months with contractors, building, design changes/updates and of course the plants. After it was finished I had a few ideas about changes and he supported everything. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
