We are so pleased with the garden and considering all we have spent refurbishing the house, the work on the garden has definitely given us the most pleasure and been the best value!
Dr M Murphy Cambridge
We came to you by means of recommendation and had seen other examples of your work, we were prepared for the beauty of your designs and the wonderful eye for colour which distinguishes your gardens. What we were less prepared for was the friendly and personal service which was extended to us and which made the whole process such a pleasure. We love the end result of all your creativity, would be delighted for any future client to visit our garden.

We are extremely happy with the design and ongoing support and advice Melanie has given us. We have a long south facing town garden which was heavily shaded by neighbours’ trees and was mainly compacted lawn. We wanted a path to the shed, more planting areas and a garden pond for wildlife, She listened to our requirements, came up with a couple of really stunning designs that suit the aspect, soil and my interest in gardening. The landscaping was completed this summer. We absolutely love our garden now – it has changed our usage of it and it is very exciting to watch the pond develop and the planting evolve. Mel recommended some landscapers who had worked with her before, helped us choose and order the materials. We asked her to do a planting plan and she came up with some beautiful ideas. She has a good knowledge of the area and the soil type so knows what plants will do well here. We ordered the plants through Mel which was great because they have been hard to source this year, and she has been really helpful getting hold of a specimen tree. She also did a lighting plan for the garden which was something we hadn’t considered but are really pleased with. Melanie has been really helpful and responsive when we’ve had questions, she is professional, knowledgeable, client focused and I would highly recommend her.
Mrs T Smith Cambridge
We would just like to say how delighted we are with the garden and to thank you for the highly professional service you provided. Not to mention your patience in helping us work out what we wanted to achieve! The whole project from design to planting was managed brilliantly and we’re really enjoying the fruits of your labour! Please drop in for a cup of tea to see how we are looking after it all.

We invited Melanie to help us redesign our gardens – the back garden was essentially a square of grass with a mature silver birch tree whilst the front garden was two evergreen trees set in gravel. Following our initial consultation, she came back with well thought through garden designs where she had sought to take into account all of our requirements (wildlife friendly, native species, a water feature, etc). We changed very little of the design. She then oversaw the physical work, and helped to layout / plant up the gardens. We are delighted with the outcomes.
Mrs Bartram Potton
Melanie designed (and organised hard landscaping and planting) for two gorgeous pocket handkerchief courtyard gardens for our house. Our brief was low maintenance, scented, contemporary. From the very beginning, she worked with us to understand what we liked (and didn’t), making us do our homework to ensure that it is OUR garden. The results are stunning. The outside is brought into the home and I couldn’t be happier! Melanie used the zinc matching our extension for raised beds which creates a harmonious whole. The lightning under the coping looks stunning at night. The garden exceeded my wildest expectations. Chic, sophisticated, but not over-bearing. Now all I want is the weather to improve to sit out in it! Melanie’s garden is a delight to come home to.
Mrs E Marksteiner Cambridge
We found Melanie to be very knowledgeable and quickly brought together all our ideas and thoughts for our garden. The design was something we wouldn’t have envisioned on our own and absolutely met everything in our brief. She worked really well with our hard landscapers to ensure the design was installed according to her design. We extremely pleased with the overall look and feel of our finished garden and would definitely recommend her.
