If you are interested in garden design Christine would love to meet you. She will come and listen to your requirements and gain an awareness of what you like and don't like about your property. She will get a feel for the site as well as your needs and then give you a quote for your garden design. You may want just a few ideas or a more substantial garden plan. For a more detailed plan Christine likes to work in two stages: To sort out the 'layout' or proposed structure of the garden first, to ensure that you are happy with this before attending to the detail of planting design.

Christine's Philosophy
"My philosophy is to do my best, and enjoy what I do.
The enjoyment is important. What goes into a project is what comes out of it.
When I enjoy working it flows and is beautiful. I care about people and I care
about the environment."
