“After some major building work last year our garden was looking sad and neglected. We decided it needed a complete makeover but as non-gardeners we didn’t really know where to start. We invited Sarah to take a look and to produce some designs for us. On her first visit, Sarah took the time to ask questions and to get a good understanding of the kind of garden we were looking for. We wanted an area of decking, a new lawn and some planted areas. We needed the new garden to be fairly low-maintenance and wanted the plants to be wildlife friendly. Sarah came up with several ideas for the layout and recommended plants that would work well in our garden. Once the design was agreed, she was able to recommend landscapers to carry out the groundwork.

Despite the work being carried out during one of the hottest, driest summers for years, the finished result was just what we were hoping for. We now have a garden that looks good and which feels manageable. Sarah’s help and advice were worth every penny and I would recommend her to anyone looking to revamp their garden.”

“We are really enjoying our new garden and the lazy lawn means we can use it whatever the weather. It has given us a space for both relaxing and entertaining thank you Sarah!”

“Sarah designed a “dog friendly” planting scheme for our new terraces, provided the plants and then planted them out. We found her to be courteous, punctual, very clear as to what was agreed and the associated costs (by way of an example, clearly marked up planting plans), professional in her approach and provided good quality plants. We would not hesitate to recommend or use her companies services again.”

“We are extremely impressed with the service received, right from the planning stage to the end result. Our garden now has beautiful foliage and glorious roses-a complete transformation! Thank you for all your dedication and hard work.”

“Working with Sarah on a big hospice project was a breeze. She was always calm, extremely patient and produced planting plans that were both beautiful and captured the spirit of the place and the brief.”

“Looking for inspiration for my newly created garden, I engaged Hortus Garden Designs. I was impressed with their modus operandi, listening carefully to my ideas and taking account of the house style and surroundings, Hortus designed 2 excellent solutions. Incorporating my requirements and building on them, Hortus are refining a final plan taking into account my comments from the 2 options supplied. This has all be completed in a professional and engaging manner, and I look forward to seeing the Hortus plans coming to life! Thank you Sarah and team.”

“Having a larger garden but a smaller budget, we were slightly apprehensive to approach a professional garden design service for fear of the project growing out of control. With Hortus Garden Design we need not have worried. We were impressed that they took time to listen to our ideas, offering advice and guidance as we discussed together the various design possibilities. They produced a really clear and professional design plan and we were delighted with the result. Thank you to Sarah for making the whole process easy and enjoyable.”
