Garden Design

Sandringham show border snapshotSue and Sally have agricultural and horticultural backgrounds and met in the early 1990s while studying History with Landscape Archaeology at the University of East Anglia. The course provided the opportunity to gain an understanding of the history of landscape development, in particular, the designed landscapes of parks and gardens of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries with Professor Tom Williamson. A mutual love of gardens and the landscape has led them to form this gardening partnership.

Whether you are looking for a major re-design or a small part or feature for your garden, we are able to help. You can see in the images below some of our show gardens to give you a flavour of what we can produce.
