"It's incredibly rare that gardens like this get built in this country. It's not possible to simply walk through this garden one feels completely immersed in it." - Judging Panel SGD, 2013
What clients say
Ian, last week, 600 people came on our 2 open days, Sunday and Tuesday, fine summer weather both days. So we put out a few cushions and rugs on the new structures. The effect was electrifying. Instead of walking on, people accepted the implicit invitation to linger-dozens and dozens of them, if not hundreds. The great thing about the meadows here, apart from the fact that they are wonderful and still improving, is that you can now view them both from above and from within, as well as circulating pretty freely. These effects are not only unusual, but they seem to make a compounding impression on people. Visitors responded quite emotionally, and I am excited again about what’s happening here.
Hi Ian, thank you so much for the gorgeous masterplan! How exciting!
Ian, thank you very much for the proposal plan – we will look at it in detail over the weekend but I can already say that it has been a pure joy to look at how you have translated our conversation, constraints and contradictions into something that works, practically and aesthetically. It really made my week!! Thank you!
Hi Ian, our first impressions: we love the layout, the ideas, the way you have brought coherence to the back garden and shaped both gardens. We all thought that the choice of stone over wood is great and will work very well with the house. I love all the areas with specimen trees as accents! In other words, we are delighted!…..Thank you again for your plans, which really lifted our spirits!
