AWARD-WINNING MODERN GARDEN DESIGN IN SUSSEX AND SURREY
If you’re considering improving your garden, you might like to know that a well designed garden can add significant value to your home but perhaps even more importantly, being in a beautiful garden has been proven to reduce stress – with our current hectic lifestyles this has never been more important.
With a background in fine art and maths, Amanda’s designs combine a beautiful, natural aesthetic with a very practical application so that spaces work functionally and intuitively.
Her clients include private individuals, developers and architects, and while most projects are medium to large country gardens, she also undertakes the renovation of historic gardens, design of small town gardens and one-off projects such as swimming pools.
Please view her portfolio for a selection of her garden designs.
Amanda has now resumed site meetings (albeit with certain safeguards in place) and is taking on new work. However, if you are vulnerable and self-isolating and would prefer her not to visit, she is still able to design your garden remotely using video meetings and photographs. After over 20 years in the business, she has an intuitive feel for a site without needing to visit and is in good company with this – Gertrude Jekyll didn’t visit many of the gardens she created over the last ten years of her life, and she didn’t have video conferencing and photographs at her disposal!
If you have instructed an architect, now is also the time to plan the garden. Many people leave the landscape to the end, when decisions have already been made that can compromise the site. The garden is not just there to be ‘pretty’, it also gives the new architecture context and settles it within its landscape giving it that all-important sense of place (not to mention giving you somewhere to park!).
Please do give Amanda a no-obligation call if you would like to discuss your project.
For now, she is still offering the popular coronagardens scheme; this gives you a diy project to see you through the crisis, for details please have a look at the coronagardens page.
