Growing well – Devon

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

This garden was planted in spring 2015 and it is very exciting to see how well it has established, the hedges have bushed out well and need just a couple more season’s to start approaching the desired height.

The pools attract hundreds of  dipping swallows, a spectacle to behold!

Another good looking border

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2016

My clients planted this border in May this year following my planting plan, the plants have bulked out well in just a few months and what is very exciting is that the clients are fast becoming keen horticulturists.

Empowered clients

Friday, July 22nd, 2016

I designed this garden in 2009/2010, the hedges were planted spring 2010. My clients have done all the work themselves including the planting and planting design. Lovely areas have been created providing privacy from neighbours and dog walkers in the field beyond. Work is on-going.


In addition to all the soft landscaping, my clients have invested massive amounts of time and energy into creating their garden: levelling the lower lawn and building a beautiful stone terrace.  Levelling the top lawn and creating a another terrace is the next task.

Circles – Poundbury

Monday, July 4th, 2016

A new garden on the Poundbury estate just outside Dorchester.  This garden is a slightly awkward shape, dominated by a lovely high curved wall, beyond the wall is another high brick wall with a circle embellishment that the clients were keen to reflect in this garden.

The new garden will be lushly planted around gravel circular areas for year round interest and enjoyment.

Gravel steps – Nr. Bristol

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

This is a garden I designed in 2014 and was installed by the clients during 2015.  We were dealing with a slope and had the issue of underground services close to the surface.  The oil tank was moved, patios at the back enlarged and new retaining walls built.

My clients kindly sent me the pictures, I have copied in their email:

Dear Angela

We are so pleased…
If you ever need trellis etc in your work we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the company we used… Stuart Garden Architecture based in Wiveliscombe
Kind Regards

Garden design – Bath

New garden design challenge, a 10 metre drop and 4 south facing terraces. We are planning a formal layout with Mediterranean style plants which when viewed from the house will work as a whole, a bit like a painting.
