This design transforms an uninviting space into a cottage garden haven for a client who is an enthusiastic and experienced gardener.


  • An upper terrace that makes use of the existing sandstone paving, positioned to benefit from the morning sun.
  • A meandering path that leads through lush cottage garden style perennial planting.
  • A stunning beehive planter is adapted to become a bubble fountain, providing a focal point from all aspects.
  • A circular sandstone lower terrace which will accommodate a bistro dining set, surrounded by abundant plants through the summer.
I had been toying with various ideas for my small back garden but none seemed ideal. It was only when Lindsay produced a number of plans for me that I realised what could be achieved.  I found her designs truly inspirational.   I was so impressed with her knowledge, her attention to detail and her all round expertise.
Lindsay was very helpful and there to offer friendly advice when needed. I am so glad that I contacted Lindsay and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone needing help or advice with their garden.  –   Chris R.
