border 3 months after planting, in full bloom

Garden in early spring before work started

Clients happy testimonial…. “We moved into a victorian terraced house in late summer 2011. It has a lovely long south-facing garden and although the hard landscaping had already  been done (path,patios)  and a lawn laid ,there was very little  planting in the two west and east facing borders.We’d been without a garden for four years and were really keen to have something lovely to sit in , look at and enjoy as soon as we could.I found Catherine’s website,loved what I saw and asked her if she could create something lovely for us.And she did just that and more.Discussing the design,the effect,the feel and the plants for the borders with her was really enjoyable as was the actual planting in late April.Catherine transformed our garden ,we are totally in love with it and have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her.”


I spent a few hours last week tyding up this little garden which we designed in March this year… weeding, trimming, dead heading, feeding, planting bedding and I took some photos once I had finished. The garden is settling in nicely, even after just 6 months. It is so important to regularly maintain the garden regularly, especially as this garden is so visible from the open plan living space.

Came back later in the evening and took some night photos, the lights and waterfall create such a lovely atmosphere at night.


What did you think of the wild flower planting at the olympic park site?  I was lucky enough to get a ticket to the stadium, and had time to take in the lovely landscaping around the park. It has inspired me to use more wild flower planting schemes in my garden designs
