Wendy believes that the same criteria should always be applied – “A garden should complement the architecture and blend the house successfully into its environment. A well designed garden can add a great deal to the value of a property, proportionately much more than the outlay. If we were to spend as much on designing our gardens as a new kitchen, we would all benefit from a richer and environmentally more pleasing space. The garden should be viewed as another living space in the home, a place where we want to spent time and enjoy alone or with others”. You can contact Wendy to discuss what she is able to do for your garden.
'As a garden designer, I experience some of the same emotions as a nanny. Having made a garden, I always want to follow its development to maturity and see how it turns out'.....Lanning Roper, American born and UK work areas garden designer 1967 (1912-1983)
