Garden Design Guru
7 Reviews
I work across a range of styles and enjoy working with clients to create a garden which fits them perfectly. With over 20 years experience as a professional garden designer and a Royal Horticultural Society Gold Medal, I have a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Living on the coast it is inevitable that many of my designs have a coastal feel, as many of my clients are looking for this. However I thrive on variety. Your garden is highly personal and deeply symbolic. A once ordinary space becomes your extraordinary place.

Please note from July 1996 to July 2106 I have traded as Changing Scenes and have now changed my trade name to Garden Design Guru as it is considerably more descriptive of my main service.

Commented: Planting Privacy needed for backyard You could train Hawthorn almost any way you want to and it will respond well to cutting back. You could also have Honeysuckle growing it it. I think that's about as 'English' as it gets!

Commented: A different project It all looks great and begins to integrate the house with the garden. It needs some good landscaping of the garden space though to add more of a feeling of privacy and nature.

Commented: Garden landscaping around an underground LPG Tank - Advice appreciated I agree with Emily about using plants. People who know their plants are not as common as you think or hope. Nursery owners are a far better source of information than Landscapers. Generally those goin...
