"I was just walking around the garden this morning and I have to say it looks fantastic. Having the garden landscaped by you has been one of the best decisions we have ever made, it’s an absolute pleasure to be in. Just wanted to say thank you"


“I feel that I must write to say how delighted I am with my new flower beds.  They are unfolding in the most beautiful fashion.

Every day I gaze with pleasure as some new plants come into blossom.  My sincere thanks for creating something so lovely.”

"I've been meaning to do this for ages, but I just want to say how much we are loving the garden. It's maturing beautifully and I can't believe how much we use it - it's like having another room!

Your design is ingenious and works even better than we imagined. We absolutely love it and I feel genuinely calm and happy when I'm sitting in it. We've had so many compliments.

Thank you so much, one year on, for an amazing job."
Andrea Thorpe

"It was only after we had completely renovated our home that we realised just how tired our garden looked and how little we used it. We wanted to do something completely different with it but didn't know what. That was where Anthea came in. She had lots of ideas. Some of them we liked, others we weren't so sure about!
However working together we came up with a plan for something that was completely different. Anthea supervised the entire process for us and the result is amazing. She has completely transformed a smallish, drab garden into a wonderful outdoor space which we now use all the time."
Mr and Mrs McClenaghan

Anthea & her team transformed my garden from a large dull space, that I didn't have a clue what to do with, to a wonderful place to relax & enjoy with friends & family. I feel I now have five gardens in one! It's amazing...The garden not only has the 'Wow' factor & is admired by everyone, it provides all year round interest & is low maintenance. Just what I wanted. I can't thank Anthea enough for her excellent planning & project management from beginning to end. I would highly recommend Anthea to everyone.
Mrs Gardner

"We very much enjoyed working with Anthea on the plans for our garden decking. Anthea's brief was to join up the garden and the house, which are separated by a stream, possibly using decking. We were delighted when Anthea returned with plans that achieved just that, but with an elegance that we could not have imagined. Every detail in the plan was sympathetic to the house and to the rural setting. We are very happy with Anthea's work"
Mr and Mrs Nichol

We chose Anthea to design our garden as she understood precisely the vision we had for the space as well as our desire to combine outdoor dining and living with a low-maintenance garden. She brought our vision to life by mixing traditional and modern materials to create texture and signature features in the different areas. The combination of herbacious plants and perenials have produced beautiful colours in their first year and we are overjoyed with the result.
Mr and Mrs Purdie

Our main difficulty was to convince ourselves that garden designers would be interested in such a small garden. Anthea responded positively and we are extremely grateful that she did. The initial consultation was exhaustive and she went away with a clear idea of our criteria and obviously many ideas of her own that we would never have thought of. Her garden design was spot on and followed our request for a 'modern but not sterile look'. Anthea was on our side from the off and always listened to us. The garden design and planting are brilliant, the steps the feature we hoped for and all finished off by the wonderful understated lighting. The result is a garden we love to spend time in. The only problem, we now never want to go out! Thanks to Anthea and the team for your creativity and hard work.
Mr and Mrs Vranch

"We wanted to develop our garden but needed professional help with the design. We are so pleased that we chose Anthea and we are absolutely delighted with her design.
We now have a stunning garden with structure and all year round interest that never ceases to amaze us. It has been much admired and is giving us such pleasure"
Mr and Mrs Lewis

The flower beds you created have given me enormous pleasure. One season has followed upon another, and each season has been lovely in its own way.

This morning in the sunshine the garden is looking truly beautiful.
