Garden landscape

From garden consultation, planting plans for beds & borders, to full garden design, I can help you at any stage of your garden journey.

The Areas I Cover

I cover the whole of Dartmoor Area and anywhere within an hour's drive from my base at Brentor, including Tavistock, Yelverton, Plymouth, Okehampton, Ashburton, Buckfastleigh and Launceston.

I am also happy to travel further afield but may have to charge additional travel costs. I can also do planting plans from photos or videos of the space if needed.

A full garden design service will include:

  • Site Survey - Full survey of site including soil samples.
  • Concept Plans - Hand drawn scale plan showing the new vision for the garden.
  • Planting Plans - Hand drawn plans detailing every plant featured in the beds/borders.
  • Working Plans – Full hand drawn technical working plan which can be passed over to landscaping contractors.

Cost will depend on the size and complexity of the garden so please contact me for a quotation.

Quotes will be given before any design work begins with a detailed summary of what the project will include.

Having recently moved to a new house with a large but neglected garden , Emma visited and then designed a large shady flower bed that was not only beautiful but fitted within our budget! She was friendly, personable, and above all else professional. She sourced and supplied all of the plants and laid them all out according to her design. The result was truly beautiful. I would thoroughly recommend her. Helen, Tavistock
