How Can I Help?

  • Is your garden space not working somehow? Areas not being used/ looking scruffy/ difficult to access/ too much hard work? 

  • Are you making the best use of your space, all year round?
  • Are you unsure which plants to use in different areas? Do things keep dying? Are there gaps at different times of the year?
  • Do you need help distinguishing between chosen plants and unwanted weeds? Do you know the best ways to deal with the different weeds in your garden?
  • Do you want some help with learning how to look after your garden?
  • Do you want to encourage more wildlife? Or discourage certain creatures?
  • Do you want some help working out what could be achieved with a particular budget?
  • Would you like some ideas about choosing the best paving for your needs or thoughts on how and where to site a feature such as a pond, focal point, or seating area?
  • Do you want to put your own stamp on a new build garden?
  • Do you need to improve the kerb appeal of your property or business? 
  • Do you need some inspiration? 


Kate can re-imagine your garden spaces through garden design and create planting plans for borders, raised beds and front gardens. Kate can source plants for you and help with planting and after-care too.
