What our clients say

You wouldn’t build a house without a plan, so why neglect the garden. Thank you for designing a small sanctuary in which to escape and restore a tired soul.

Mrs V

Littleover, Derbyshire

We have had great pleasure watching the garden change, season by season, and your brilliant planting has ensured that there is always something of interest in the borders, which is exactly what we wanted. Lots of people have admired it and some have even taken notes and copied parts of it in their gardens.

Mrs S

Ashby de la Zouch, Leicestershire

Lush Garden Design both designed and planted our wonderful new garden and I would not hesitate in recommending them to others. Anna spent the time and effort upfront to understand what we liked, wanted and didn’t want in our new garden and came up with some fabulous, creative designs.

Mr J

Coleorton, Leicestershire

We are so pleased we went with your design – with your skill and encouragement from the start making all the difference.

Mrs S

Ashbourne, Derbyshire

Thank you for all your creativity and expertise with the garden. It looks fantastic and we both love the hard landscaping and the planting. It’s quite a transformation. It is more beautiful than we ever could have imagined and I have no doubt that we will love it for many years to come.

Anna has been the inspiration behind us renovating our garden. Her designs, advice and implementation have been inspiring and she has been willing to work at our pace and budget without pressure selling.
