Christina and Annie both trained at the English Gardening School in London and have been working together for eight years. Although many of our designs include contemporary features and planting, we also do many gardens that are much more traditional in feel. Ascertaining a realistic level of ongoing maintenance, accommodating how the area will be used both now and in the future and considerations of budget are all essential elements in any of our designs. Based on these criteria we usually create a Masterplan.
From this starting point we can oversee all construction and hard landscaping. After the structural features such as hedges and trees are installed, we can develop detailed planting plans for the borders. We source all elements of the new garden from stonework to plants and work with our clients until the job is completed. Some of our clients would prefer to manage the work in stages and we are available to advise on the best way to go about this too.
With combined knowledge of over 30 years, we have the experience to design a wide range of gardens. Using traditional or contemporary style we can landscape a large estate but equally are delighted to breathe new life into a small London garden. Our work covers Chelsea Flower Show (Gold medal and Best in Category 2010), urban courtyards (as featured in House and Garden May 2010) and more traditional country gardens (featured in The Garden, House and Garden, Country Life, The English Garden and Country Living). We can take a project from the drawing board, through construction to the fully planted garden. Our passions are plants and design and we relish all challenges!
