I inspire people to create beautiful gardens, helping them to make the most possible from their outdoor space. 


Would YOU really love to have a beautifully designed garden?

So sorry folks, I am not taking on new clients at the moment.

Does your garden need taming?

Do you have a lack of knowledge?

Lack of time?

Is your garden overgrown, untidy with no areas to sit and enjoy being out of doors?

Are you frustrated, overwhelmed and don’t know where to start?

 A garden can be tamed with careful planning.

Many people struggle with getting the garden that they want, not knowing which plant to put where and the best time to plant it.

They have many ideas but are not able to put their plans on paper.

I can understand how frustrating this must be.

Many clients have come to me with their ideas and needs and we have planned and built beautiful gardens that are easily maintained and used throughout the year.

This is when we really bash ideas around together until you can see on paper your ideal garden.

When you are happy that I have everything right, I draw up the garden design to scale with landscaping and planting plans.

 Included in the design will be all the elements that will make the garden perfect for you

We have been very pleased and impressed with the work that Wendy has done for us. 

She has continually gone out of her way for us, from the design stage to the execution of the landscaping.

Her dedication to the project has been faultless, her ideas were ingenious and her skills outstanding.

Wendy really took the time to find out what was to our taste and we are absolutely thrilled with what she has created for us.

I have no hesitation in recommending Wendy to anyone. We never could have created something so good without her expertise.
