I sit writing this after spending time pottering in the garden tidying and trimming to keep things looking tip-top as Summer turns to Autumn. This is something I would never have done in the past as we finally have a garden to be proud of. We now have an inspired layout comprising different seating and entertaining spaces, as well as colourful planting that really brings the garden to life.
The planting design was inspired – when we started the journey I just couldn’t have imagined that this aspect would turn out so well. Compared to the hard landscaping I had given this little thought, but now realise it’s so important to get right. When Julie showed me the design and the plant choices I knew that I was in safe hands. The planning scheme is designed to embrace the seasons as they change, so I’m really looking forward to watching the garden change over the coming year.
I found the design process was really thorough, from capturing the initial brief, taking measurements, producing layouts and planting plans. As the design evolved iteratively, I felt that my views were always taken on board and we were always able to discuss the implications of decisions that were made.
Julie was very good at bringing her experience to bear and often suggested new ideas to ensure that end product turned out well. Her communication was always clear and concise, conversations were always followed up by an email so we were clear on what was agreed.
I would recommend Julie’s design service, it was excellent and I felt in safe hands. She has an eye for detail that will ensure you are truly happy with the end product.”
