AS SEEN ON GRAND DESIGNS
Grand Designs Healthy House, Richmond
In 2018, Ellen's eco & health house landscape/garden design were featured on Channel 4's Grand Designs.
"Thank you for the care and attention you paid to not only the garden design but to our entire project ensuring that all aspects of the build connected and most importantly worked for us."
A sloping garden plot with no redeeming features, has been turned into an attractive and welcoming space for friends and family to enjoy.
A Private Haven
"With Ellen's vision and expertise, our sadly neglected and overgrown plot was transformed into a private haven. Due to the extensive refurbishment works on our house, the project had to be carried out in 2 phases both of which Ellen oversaw and managed to complete on time and within budget."
Our Garden Design begins with a hand-drawn, black and white, scaled plan in bird's-eye view.*
When required, specific features are shown in accompanying illustrations or photos.
We then suggest meeting to discuss the proposed design, to share its rationale and to consider our recommended materials and finishes. Any minor design changes required will be completed within the agreed fee.
* Scans available on request.
