About us

We are experienced garden designers, based in Warrington, just north of Cheshire. We work with clients across the Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside and Lancashire to design and create beautiful, thriving gardens.
We create full garden designs or planting plans and can see projects through to implementation too. We work closely one-to-one with each client to imagine and then realise the garden they are looking for.
As we see it, every outdoor space is a patch of the planet and we think every space wants to thrive. We believe that a garden should work perfectly for people whilst enriching nature too.
So our gardens are designed carefully in harmony with nature and when we create them, we look to have the lowest impact we can on the planet. That means you can be sure we will design gardens that are not only beautiful and practical, but that tread lightly and are a haven for nature too.
Our gardens usually include edible elements throughout as well as features to attract and support wildlife. Our designs put a heavy emphasis on the plants and we tend towards organic shapes and natural forms.
We believe in the potential of every green space. So we also work with community groups and on larger public space design to bring abundance and nature to as many patches of the planet as we can. And we run courses to share skills and knowledge in ecological gardening.
