Romantic Arts and Crafts



When Pam and John were the winning bidders at a Charity Auction for my Garden Design services they got way more than they bargained for. Initially wanting just to overhaul a large border at their Arts and Crafts mellow brick Villa in the Surrey Hills, between Kingswood and Reigate. They soon realised that my vision for their garden was too tempting not to realise. We removed old conifers and overgrown Buxus to reveal the fabric of the garden, uncovering a lovely flint walled sunken area and fabulous chunky stone steps.  The garden has been transformed into a haze of perennials. Geraniums and Nepeta, Alchemilla mollis and Penstemons form a rich palette of colour, accented here and there with clumps of fresh white Lysimachia and Leucanthemum, the overall effect is breathtaking!

‘There’s a dreaminess about it that keeps rolling on through the year, whatever time of day or month of the year, a glance out of the window always lifts your heart. It is a perpetual pleasure’ Pam K.
