Designing and restoring gardens across the South-East

Run by three times Chelsea Award Winning Designer Chris O'Donoghue, we are a small creative team with a passion for gardening who will help turn your dreams into reality.

Garden design consultation

Whether your garden is the size of a pocket handkerchief, a huge estate or something in between, we can offer you a comprehensive consultation and design service. At an initial meeting we build up an idea of how you see your garden developing and suggest how we can achieve this.

With our experience we are able to offer solutions and innovations that you may not have considered.

Garden design planning

After you have decided to proceed, we wil/l produce a set of A3 colour drawings and planting plans. These will show you how the finished garden will look and provide information for setting out hard-landscaping and structures and give details of the most suitable plants to use.

Garden design build

We are able to provide a team to undertake the hard work or, if the job is extensive, we can recommend landscape contractors to do the major landscaping. Chris will act as your project manager and see the landscaping through to completion.

Then, with our team, we can do the final planting and add the finishing touches that will turn your garden into the special space you had imagined.
