For 12 years, our garden was a fairly small,  uninspiring, lawned triangle, predominantly used by our dog and for hanging out washing!  We just didn’t have the knowledge, skills or imagination to turn it into a garden we would love.  Thankfully,  Renee has all three and has created a beautiful, interesting, colourful space which we’re loving spending time in each and every day ….it’s literally changing the way we live and there’s barely a day goes by without me saying how much I love our new garden!  Thank you so much, Renee!

Having been uncertain about engaging a garden designer to create a bee friendly garden, we are absolutely buzzing with the result. Renee delivered a spectacular design, resulting in a garden that is exceeding all our expectations. Thanks Renee!

I was looking to refresh the garden now that the kids are mostly away at University. Renee came armed with lots of ideas & created new focal points in the garden to appreciate from indoors as well as out. I especially love the low maintenance planting and the new Cor Ten steel planters which created a new private seating area. 

Luckily the garden was completed just before lockdown and it has been great to relax and enjoy the outdoor space – especially the new fire pit in the evening!

Working with Renee has been easy and fun! She listened to us and created a garden out of a blank space that is going to be fabulous to watch grow and evolve.

We asked Renee to design a planting scheme for a tired shady border, she recommended improving the soil and creating a woodland style area to benefit wildlife.

I am absolutely delighted with the garden. It looks amazing, the colour just keeps on coming, the plants are so huge and healthy now, I don’t know what magic was worked but it really does look gorgeous!

As a trade stand exhibitor at the RHS shows I have worked with Renee on my planting requirements for a couple of shows to bring my stand to life. The pressure of doing the planting at a Royal Horticultural Flower Show is best left to the experts!

Renee listened to my needs and reflected my inspiration in her choice of plants, she delivered on trend planting that was much admired by visitors to the show and I was delighted with. I would definitely work with Renee again.

Renee absolutely transformed our garden from a paved over patch of cement to a beautiful and tranquil space for all to enjoy in the Puzzle Gardens area of Wirksworth. I am looking forward to working with her again this year as the plants grow bigger we continue to add new elements to the space. Renee has a unique creative talent and is professional and responsive in her work.

Jack Roper, Derbyshire Wildlife Trust

Renee’s enthusiasm, professionalism and creative eye was already well known to the Trust so when the opportunity came up to develop a garden for RHS Chatsworth we knew who to collaborate with.

Renee’s powerful and flexible design illustrated the charities Living Landscape strategy in the form of a contemporary, garden space; winning 3 RHS Gold Stars as a result.

We are tackling a fairly large project and Renee has allowed us to turn our vision into reality with inspiration, advice and knowledge from the very start.

She has grasped the essence of our brief so quickly and worked with both the period of our property and the local area to design our outdoor space balancing form, function and play.

She designs in an effortless style, very natural but also sophisticated and has a wide network of craftsmen that can incorporate wonderful details into the scheme.

I look forward to and thoroughly enjoy each of our meetings when I feel ideas get flowing and can’t wait for the next stage of design and planting to start.

The garden looks transformed already and we’ve only just started the project.

I would recommend Renee highly if you love gardens but are unsure on how to turn yours from dream to reality.

C Brown, Wirksworth

We asked Renee to design our front garden – she did an amazing job of understanding and interpreting our vague requirements! She brought in elements we hadn’t considered (like pollution resistant plants because of the proximity to the road) and enhanced our own ideas. She used local craftspeople and supplies as we requested, and created a beautiful space in a tiny area that gives us delight every time we come in and out of the house. I can’t wait to see what she suggests for our back garden next year!
