We created a woodland setting for a client’s new studio in this unused and inaccessible area of a garden in Fiveways, Brighton. The steeply sloped section was levelled into terraces and retained with sleepers. A new lawn and planting in keeping with the secluded, shady feel of around the studio were added.
“I have known and employed Anna and Tommy for several years. In that time they have done a range of gardening activities for me from a standard upkeep service through to a full scale re-design of a large area in my garden. I find them approachable and knowledgeable. They have always listened to my own ideas about my style of garden but provides that invaluable professional input from someone who gardens for a living. They are well organised – our garden re-design involved prep work, full scale daily work for weeks and then subsequently further work to enable planting at the appropriate time. They brought in extra people and skills as needed, worked with all the suppliers and in essence made a fairly large job reasonably painless. I would happily recommend them without reservation.”

We made this tiny cluttered, steeply sloping garden safe for the two young children of the house and enjoyable for their parents by bringing down the level at the back, putting in shallow steps the width of the garden and creating clean lines and a Mediterranean feel with the use of travertine paving, linear fencing and suitable plants in in-built planters.
“Looks lovely, thanks!”

Beachside Back Yard
This new built Sydney property near the beach was on a plot of land which was previously under concrete. We cleared the area, created lawns with areas of architectural planting in the front and back and a lush, foliagey passage connecting the two, centering on an outdoor shower to clean off from the beach.
A Contemplative Garden
A calming, contemplative garden concentrating on foliage rather than flowers and with a space to meditate for a local Buddhist on a tight budget.
“I am very pleased with the way the garden was designed. Its easy to maintain, and the plants create a very peaceful and contemplative atmosphere. Anna was able to put into practice all the ideas I gave her about what I wanted and everything was done promptly. I would recommend Anna’s gardening skills to anyone wanting a garden design.”

Willingdon Trees Community Centre Garden
This Eastbourne community centre wanted a community space with areas for growing, places for children to hide and play and good wildlife value in it’s previously stark grounds.
