“We asked Sam to design a country/coastal garden that was easy to maintain as we would not be at the house all the time. We wanted to include a boardwalk and some curves. We also needed to lose some of the lawn as we were spending most weekends cutting it in the summer.
We had chosen our own summerhouse, which Sam incorporated into the design but otherwise it really was a blank canvas. Trevor built the garden and Sam planted all the beautiful flowers, trees and grasses. She gave us a book showing all our new plants with a guide to show us how to care for them.
Many thanks to Samantha for designing such a lovely garden. A perfect place to entertain friends and family, or just curl up with a good book. We look forward to spending long hot summer days admiring our new garden in Norfolk.”

“Sam has successfully designed a fantastic outdoor seating area from part of the garden that was very run down. At the same time the new area flows seamlessly into the existing garden and once the new paving has weathered will feel like one garden. She has thoughtfully kept the plants that had sentimental attachment and at the same time complemented them with more imaginative plantings. Sam also managed all the planning aspects when we took out the large Leylandii tree as we live in a conservation area.
We are over the moon with the new garden and look forward to using it and watching it grow. Even though the garden is only weeks old we have had lots of admiring comments from friends and neighbours. The wall in particular is a big hit.”

“Sam interpreted the conditions of our two acre blank field and our requirements for our dream garden brilliantly and gave us a superb detailed plan that we are putting into action phase by phase.
At each stage, Sam is on hand to advise and support us and we are delighted with the evolving garden. Thank you so much Sam.”

“We decided to have a small extension built on the back of our house. It was at that point we realised that our garden would need an urgent redesign. Sam provided us with a lovely design, which has transformed the relationship between our garden and house. It feels like we have a beautiful new room, which is a joy to observe in winter and a pleasure to use in summer.
We consulted closely with Sam on ideas. She project managed the new design build and carried out the planting. We have continued a much appreciated and regular contact with Sam, for advice and help in maintaining our garden.”

“We had recently moved into a new house and had a completely blank half acre of garden and while visting our local nursery were given Sam’s name. She was very helpful, listened to what we wanted and she came up with a design that we were very pleased with.
One year later we have exactly what we wanted. A garden that was quick to mature, has lots of colour all year round and reasonably low maintenance. All our neighbours remark on how wonderful our garden looks, we would certainly recommend her.”

“Sam’s brief was essentially to produce something that looked good and was low maintenance. I can’t believe how good it looks and how little time it takes to look after. The process was straightforward, friendly and professional.
Something I wasn’t expecting (though it wasn’t accidental on Sam’s part) was how the colour scheme attracts lots of butterflies in the summer.”

“The garden is looking spectacular. Both the beds look fantastic and everyone was very complimentary when we had our open gardens days. The planting round the pond has been lovely with “surprises” popping up all the time.
You made such a lovely job of our garden and we have received many compliments.”

“Every time I try to write a letter of thanks to you, the garden you have created for us changes and looks even better. You have turned a small dreary space into a truly delightful Japanese garden for us, with a minimum of fuss but will a lot of effort and expertise.
Nothing has been too much trouble for you, and you were always available to cheerfully answer questions. The garden came in on budget and was very good value when we look at the first class results.
Our garden gives us pleasure every day and has been admired by all who see it. We are delighted we chose you to create it for us.”
