Chris and Karen’s combined artistic talents and expertise made me consider solutions for my garden that I would not have dreamed of in a million years. I am now the proud owner of an aerial hedge, a wisteria covered pergola and a wild flower meadow topped off with a dry stone wall  that is the envy of all my friends and neighbours.

These features are part of a unified design theme that links the garden rooms with my house and conservatory and where I spend many happy hours. The owl sculpture is a centre piece and much admired.  

The garden  has been accepted to be open to the public one day per year under the auspices of the National Gardens Scheme and we look forward nervously to our first open day this year in 2012 but with Chris and Karens help I’m sure it will be a success.

Thank you Chris and Karen for all your hard work, your friendly advice, your tact (in the face of some of my more outlandish ideas)  and your continued interest and support.”

Dear Chris and Karen

Just a few lines to thank you for your design and help with our garden. It has been transformed from an area that we simply passed through occasionally to what can only now be described as an extra room to our property!

We utilise every inch of its design and the children have developed a keen interest in how things grow. We all feel we have ownership and control of its space thanks to your advice. Your support has been tremendous, from simple ideas to detailed maintenance schedules. We are eagerly anticipating the summer months when we can see this in its full glory.

Many thanks

The Ramsay Family, Carisbrooke

We have been meaning to drop you a note to say how great the garden is looking and how much we are enjoying it. All the plants seem to be thriving and filling out and we have a real sense of anticipation to see how they will change and develop. The colours are wonderful. We spend so much time in it now and it is always a pleasure to be out there – it has a real sense of calm.

The children are loving the home – grown lettuces and are eagerly awaiting the carrots, cucumbers, and tomatoes.

Thank you so much.

The Astle Family, Northamptonshire

Dear Chris & Karen,

Thank you so much for your views on how to remodel part of the garden following a house extension.

Your quote gave the most cost effective and inspirational solution – your honesty and deep gardening knowledge were much appreciated.

Karen’s sculptures are much admired as is the overall planting scheme.”

Since its completion many people have commented upon the garden design and the exceptional standard of the finished article. Your attention to detail, consideration for the environment and the surrounding wildlife was key. Your work has resulted in many happy hours spent in the garden and has undoubtedly added value to my property as a whole.”

J Walker, Skelton In Cleveland

From design to completion the project was professionally handled, the design is innovative and the planting suitable to the conditions. I can confidently say that I would have no hesitation in recommending Eves & Lewis Landscape Design.”
