Garden design Bristol, Somerset & London
"My main requirement was a quiet serene space for me to meditate, something low-maintenance but stylish. The garden sits beneath a very large London Plane tree, and until now very little has survived underneath it. A good knowledge of plants for this kind of environment was paramount; everything Caroline specified has thrived and I'm amazed.
Caroline has a gentle nature and I resonated with her immediately. She works well with people of all skills and personalities, including the builder, trades people and the architect (I was in the process of a total rebuild of my home), which was very important.
She listened to my desires and initially produced sketches for discussion, followed by more detailed and finished drawings as the meetings progressed with the entire team. And now I feel like I have the most beautiful garden I could wish for.
Mine is only a small town garden (plus two balcony terraces) so precise measurements were paramount, and everything was fitted to the millimetre as a result of Caroline’s attention to detail. In fact when it was complete the garden felt much larger than it was previously with comfortable seating areas, BBQ area and a further bench seating area, I am amazed at the use of space.
The plants are mostly evergreen and therefore I can enjoy it all year round. It has retained its beauty throughout the Winter and I am looking forward to watching it blossom into Spring and enjoy it in full bloom in the Summer, which I am sure will be spectacular.
If you have the opportunity to work with Caroline I would jump at it. She will not let you down."
