We are qualified garden designers based in south-east London. Our business has been established since 2004 and we offer many years of horticultural and design experience.
As you will see from our website, we have a 'down-to-earth' approach to our gardens and planting designs.
We believe that green spaces play an important role in our lives. People are drawn to the outdoors and are spending more time entertaining and relaxing in their own gardens. Our aim is to create gardens for all our clients to enjoy, designing unique spaces that suit specific budgets.
Our services range from one-off consultations, planting schemes, plant supply, through to full design commissions.
For 2024, the studio is once again busy with new commissions. We will be posting their progress on our website and on our social media platform.
Lesley De La Mare
Lesley graduated from Harrow School of Art to enter a busy studio in Covent Garden and after ten years left to run her own successful Graphic Design company.
Her desire for horticulture led her to enroll and achieve the RHS General Examination followed by a course in Garden Design.
After working for several years in garden maintenance an opportunity arose for her to work full-time as a manager for an independent nursery, where she spent three years learning the trade and gaining valuable plant knowledge. This coupled with her previous design expertise provides the perfect platform to create planting plans for clients.
