As the back garden area is the winning feature of our flat, and was the main selling point when we made the decision to purchase the property, redesign of the space was our first and most important project. We chose Celine for our project, because she, more so than possibly more experienced garden designers, seemed to “get it”, understood what was important to us, and our personal tastes.
We are absolutely delighted with our new garden. Through a series of discussions, during which Celine presented her ideas, advised us in regards to layout and planting, listened to our ideas and wishes, but was also very good in voicing her concerns and guiding us, the perfect layout was designed. Her project management kept the redesign on track, and we were delivered our dream space in time for our first BBQ party.
We are very proud of our new garden, and have shown it to many friends and family, who have all complimented us on the fantastic space it now is. We can’t wait for the next summer. Thanks Celine!
All my previous experiences with landscape gardeners has been that they just didn’t “get” what I was asking for. From the very first meeting with Celine, I could tell that she understood exactly the feel and look that I wanted and instantly reeled off a bunch of ideas for consideration. Celine is a great visualiser so she came up with ideas I hadn’t even thought of, taking into account all aspects (position of garden, lighting, surroundings and soil type). Hard to believe Celine was ever an Investment Banker as I see her as an artist and the finished result is proof of that. Her plant knowledge is very extensive so the plants that she recommended I go with, leave my garden still looking plush in the cold winter months and extremely tropical in the summer (which was my brief). And on top of all that, it was really nice to work with someone who could get as excited as I was about my garden!
All in all, a great experience and result. My garden is my new favourite part of my house!!
From the moment we discussed our needs, Celine showed fantastic empathy coupled with genuine enthusiasm to help resolve our specific needs. Her flexibility helped enormously when we decided we wanted to simplify the design.
Celine has the combined talents of a very creative eye coupled with great project management skills. These combined elements proved a winning formula and we are still “bowled away” by the results.
Celine was quick to interpret what I wanted. Her approach to combining new planting with existing plants was creative and resourceful. I was very impressed with her execution of the initial project and have asked her to carry out regular garden maintenance for me. Highly recommended!
We have been absolutely delighted with Celine. We didn’t have a huge budget, but wanted someone who could show us what would be planted where and explain how to manage our garden. It was very important to us that she asked us about planting style and colour preferences and then brought over a beautifully presented design that we could discuss. The border has just been finished and we can’t wait to see how it develops.
Celine also quoted for and completed a tidy up of the front garden, making really helpful suggestions we hadn’t thought of which have improved things. We expect to engage her for more work in the future and I have already recommended her to work colleagues.
Professional to deal with from the beginning. Listened to what was required, offered suggestions & advice.
The job was completed within the proposed time frame. Reliable and diligent with excellent knowledge of plants. I am very pleased with the end result and would highly recommend.
