"After building work at our house in Crouch End, our small back garden was a terrible mess. Cath’s creativity and expertise has helped us to make our garden a sanctuary of colour and calm - something that gives us pleasure every single day. She really did everything for us - from the initial landscaping design to sourcing the people to do the work to recommending and putting in the plants. She is highly responsive and reliable; extremely pragmatic and straightforward; and hard working and excellent value for money. We could not recommend her and her services any higher."

"We asked Catherine to design and plant our large but undeveloped garden.

Her planning and initial surveying was meticulous and she helped us choose a very good landscape gardener to make the considerable structural changes that we needed.  She worked with us to establish exactly what we wanted and allowed us to insist on some details she probably didn't like!

Catherine did, and continues to do, all the planting and we now have a transformed garden.  It will continue to evolve over the years and we intend to employ Catherine as we like her collaborative, professional and careful approach."

"We hired Catherine to carry out a full garden makeover and couldn't be more pleased with the result. Her knowledge, attention to detail, hard work and consummate professionalism brought our dull garden to life and she was a joy to work with from start to finish. Catherine listened to our requirements and delivered. The new cedarwood deck provided the much needed 'wow factor' and Catherine's thoughtful planting continues to delight throughout all seasons.  My husband whiles away the hours in his hidden bike-cave and the new lighting provides 'designery' accents while also allowing him to tinker when dusk falls. Our revamped garden has been complimented by all who have seen it: friends, neighbours and even our children's teenage mates - high praise indeed! Top marks to the lovely Catherine - mission accomplished!"

"Two years ago Catherine came to our home to help us understand what we wanted from our garden. She is a brilliant communicator and as such has the ability to be to reflect back accurately what is and not wanted. The design work was thoughtful to our family's needs and practical to ensure our dog's safety when choosing plants.  She worked to a reliable schedule and kept us updated along the way. I would not hesitate in recommending Catherine to design and plant your garden. Her attention to detail is evident in the planning and we are now the proud owners of our dream garden."

"Catherine came up with a fantastic planting plan for our back garden, which has provided year-round interest and colour and gets loads of compliments. Catherine really listened to the kinds of plants I like (roses and an English-country-garden theme) but managed to make it all really funky and modern at the same time. She also helped us re design the front garden, whilst sticking to a budget. We now have a fantastic seating area with stepping stones and low-level plants, as well as some larger shrubs and trees. The use of space is perfect; Catherine has a brilliant eye and expert knowledge of plants. She is also really pleasant and reliable to deal with – her communication is great. Most highly recommended! Thanks Catherine."
