Somerset Gardens and Landscapes
An Extension of Your Personality and Home
I am a Bristol and Somerset-based gardener/ horticulturalist, working skilfully with gardens and the natural environment to transform your garden into what you have always dreamed of. Using over fifteen years of experience I design, re-design, manage and maintain a large variety of gardens and landscapes throughout Somerset covering areas: Wells, Pilton, Glastonbury, Oakhill, Chew Stoke, Chew Valley and surrounding villages.
Drawing my inspiration from our natural landscapes as well as landscapes and design from throughout the world, I love to harmoniously blend plants, flowers and trees and enhance gardens with the use of hard and soft landscaping and of course large doses of amazing inspiration!
How it Works
So how does the process work?
There are a number of different ways that we can go about creating your dream garden, using a wide range of different hard landscaping or soft landscaping techniques that will enhance your garden using trees and plants.
Initially we recommend making scale drawings of your garden so that you will have a clear idea of the planning process and have opportunity to make any changes before the work begins. Planting plans can also be drawn up to ensure that the right plants are chosen for you to suit the soil, aspect and of course your own personal taste.
Using my in-depth knowledge of working with gardens, we can also discuss various methods and a less formal approach to the re-planning of your garden. You may already have very clear ideas of what you would like to achieve and we can support the realisation of your concepts with our team of specialised experts so that the whole process is not only successful but enjoyable as well.
Gardening And Landscaping Services
We are all unique and our gardens should reflect our individual personalities, tastes and styles whilst being both easy to maintain and a pleasure to spend time in. I am always aware of this when working or re-designing a garden; delivering incredible results by offering a complete, comprehensive service from start to finish. This includes a FREE initial consultation with you, followed by a preparation of the client brief and finishing with the actual physical completion of the project including sourcing materials and providing a small team of highly skilled, creative people.
In recent years, I have diversified my skills using numerous methods of achieving desired results for my clients, we can see the project through from the start right through to completion and beyond with regular maintenance visits, this ensures your garden is cared for to the highest standard and is always a pleasant and enjoyable place to sit in or look out on to throughout the seasons.
I also take into account practicality and the different use of your outside space. I am also extremely knowledgeable around plants and trees and can give advice on your existing garden offering a wide range of ideas to suit your own individual taste.
As well as design, I carry out one-off garden tidy ups and offer regular maintenance contracts to ensure that your garden is cared for throughout the year to an exceptionally high standard and looks wonderful during all seasons.
