Is Your Garden Getting You Down?

Is your garden getting tired, scruffy and difficult to maintain? Or is it just bland and boring?

Do you wish you could enjoy your outside space? Would you love to entertain friends and family without feeling you have to apologise for the state of your garden? Or do you dream of a garden where you can just sit out and relax?

We can design your dream garden

annaI’m Anna Barker from Lush Garden Design. With my team of designers, we’ve designed over 200 gardens over the past 10 years – for people just like you.

In that time we’ve designed low maintenance courtyards, stylish contemporary gardens, terraced sloping gardens, Japanese and Zen-style gardens, all the way through to large country estates.

Whatever the size of your plot, we always make sure your dreams are at the heart of your new garden. We really listen to you and make sure your garden reflects your passions and your lifestyle.

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

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.
