“From the planning which was hugely enjoyable, with Claire taking soil samples, checking aspects, measuring etc and really getting to know our plot and asking us detailed questions about what we wanted from our garden, to then being presented with a very detailed plan… we couldn’t have been more impressed. After a couple of changes due to our personal preferences (which Claire instantly accommodated and suggested excellent alternatives) we signed off on the plans and awaited good weather for our garden to be constructed.

It is now finished and we couldn’t be more delighted with the end result. All the plants arrived looking healthier than any we have seen in garden centres and Claire and her team took great care in positioning and planting them.

The entire process from start to finish has exceeded our expectations and the garden is looking lovely already.

Over thirty years we have had three gardens professionally landscaped and planted and this is by far and away the best and the happiest experience.

In summary, we could not recommend Claire too highly.

David Smallridge – Wollaton (Notts)

“Claire was a joy to work with from start to finish. We are thrilled with the results. Claire interpreted our wishes unbelievably and gave us something better than we could have dreamed of.”

Kathryn Knott – Quorn 

“We have been delighted with the professional service provided by Claire. We needed expert design as well as a planting and ongoing service and have not been disappointed. The garden has looked superb all year and we have been able to enjoy the garden more than ever before. Claire also takes time to revisit and provide ongoing advice/support and service. Thank you so much.”

Chris & Rachel – Nottinghamshire

“Claire designed our front garden around four years ago now. We had some ideas about what we wanted in terms of planting style but knew we hadn’t the knowledge or skills to achieve it. Claire translated our ideas and produced a design that suits the space perfectly. The planting is beautiful and much admired by passers by. We would have no hesitation in recommending her.”

Ruth & Paul Perkes – Walton On The Wolds

“Claire worked for us on and off at our nursery while she was qualifying in horticulture and garden design. It was clear to us that she has an excellent plant knowledge and a vision for the overall picture of a border, so we decided to let her loose in our garden. We were happy with the existing design of the garden, the shapes of the borders etc but we felt that the planting could do with some rejuvenation. Despite our own knowledge and expertise we gave Claire a free hand to do what she wanted. We are really pleased with the results. Our garden has never looked so good! We have no hesitation in recommending her to our customers.”

John & jo Morris – Six Acres Nursery, Costock

“We have a well established garden but some of the borders were in need of rejuvenation. Having seen some of Claire’s work we decided she was the right person for the job. In two large borders Claire created a planting plan incorporating some of the existing planting. She has an excellent knowledge of plants, and great skill in creating outstanding plant combinations. The finished borders complement the rest of the garden beautifully and we will soon be asking her to produce a new design for our front garden.”

Nick & Sue Hollick – Diseworth

“Claire is fantastic!!! I cannot recommend her enough. We moved into our house about 10 years ago, and we have never been satisfied with how our garden looked. Claire came round and listened to our likes and dislikes, gardening ability and time available to look after the garden and devised a user friendly plan, which has transformed our back garden, from a boring plot of fences and concrete bases to one that sparks interest. The wildlife has also returned!!! Our new log wall has been the talk of the village and has even had people knock on our door to say how lovely it is. Full credit goes to Claire. Thanks again, I have been recommending you to everyone!!”

Charlie & Pete – Morris

“Claire has designed me the most beautiful little cottage garden. She really understood what I wanted and has put together a fabulous planting plan. I can’t wait until next year as all the plants start to grow and the garden fills with gorgeous flowers, scents, bees, butterflies and birds! Thank you, Claire, for designing my dream garden!”

Joanna De Graaf

“A very easy review to write. Claire has been great throughout the whole process of overhauling our garden right from initial concept design through to planting up the beds. Working within the constraints of a relatively small budget, she’s come up with exactly what we were after – an easy to manage space with masses of long lasting flowers. Our garden is now our favourite “room” in the house. Thanks Claire.”

Lucy Perchard

“Claire has transformed our back garden into a light, stylish and modern garden filled with beautifully coloured flowers and plants that attract the bees and butterflies. Claire really took time to understand what we do and don’t like, how we want to use the garden as well as how much time we have to spend gardening. Her design perfectly reflected our tastes and we now get pleasure from our garden every day. We were so pleased with her work last year that we have asked her to re- design our front border this year. Again, the combination of plants that Clare has chosen work perfectly with our existing hedge and tree and we have had lots of nice comments from our neighbours who are now enjoying the difference Claire has made as well !”

Philippa Guy

“Claire Jones designed my garden in 2015 and what an amazing job she did. I live in a new build property and the garden lacked character with a lawn that regularly flooded. Claire designed a beautiful and traditional garden with plants that have survived in our thick clay soil. I think what has been the most useful for me is that Claire has offered me ongoing advice on how to care for the plants and is always there at the end of the phone. She is so passionate in what she does and this truly reflects in her amazing work. Thank you Claire.”

Liz Tuccy

“Absolutely excellent advice and great ideas. A consultation with Claire is well worth buying -for suggestions regarding layout but also for planting and care. Last year, I had an advice session before embarking on renewing an old patio section and we are delighted with the results. This year I have had another inspiring session, for some new work. it’s worth it!”

Elaine Glasius

“We are really delighted with the front garden Claire has designed for us. Claire very quickly understood what we were trying to achieve, but really added value by suggesting design options that we had not considered ourselves. Her design reflected and built on our particular planting likes and dislikes. She is very enthusiastic, very flexible and easy to work with. The garden was only completed last week and already the compliments are flooding in. We would highly recommended Claire to anyone.”

Andrew Bowler

“We have really enjoyed working with Claire. We were working to a budget so we worked on the garden in stages and did all of the work ourselves. Claire designed the garden and planting schemes and supported us throughout the process , answering our questions and giving us lots of information. We finally finished our garden this weekend and are delighted with the results. Claire sourced and checked all the plants before they were delivered, and spent a few hours with us helping us to position the the plants and giving us lots of useful advice. We would highly recommend Claire to anyone wanting to redesign their garden.”

Martin H

“Excellent, friendly service, absolutely no pressure, great inspiration and all planting taken care of. Thoroughly recommend”

Keith Hill

“Claire has transformed our garden into a place of beauty full of wonderful wildlife, we couldn’t afford to do all the work in one go but Claire’s master plan allows us to carry out each step as we can afford”
