Testimonials

“We are extremely happy with the result and were very impressed with Annabel’s ability to:

  • Interpret our initial meeting and provide us with the planting design we had always wanted.
  • Make the best use of our existing planting i.e. the decision to move some of the box hedge, which was now dividing up the garden, and place it in the raised bed next to our picture window thereby bringing more of the garden ‘into’ our kitchen extension. We have no hesitation in recommending North Leeds Garden Design services”.

Thanks so much for making my outdoor space fabulous.

Having bought a new build house, we were not surprised that we ended up with a small square of turf underlaid by anonymous rubble, but thanks to North Leeds Garden Design we now have a wonderful entertaining and gardening space, with colour and intrigue.

There was a slope to the back garden and this has been levelled out to create a beautiful sweeping patio.

We are very happy with the completed job and are so excited to see the first shoots popping through from the bulbs planted as the ‘finishing touch’ to the garden following our follow up meeting 6 months after completion.

I was amazed how much Sarah and Annabel were able to achieve in our small garden. It now feels larger and all the different levels really work. They were attentive and patient during the whole design process and I’ve ended up with the country garden feel that I wanted.

The garden is now in its second season and it’s exciting to see how it changes each month as new areas and plants come to life. Thoroughly worthwhile getting in the experts to achieve more than I ever could have on my own. The follow up meetings have also been fantastic.

I would definitely recommend North Leeds Garden Design and will certainly think about using them again should we move house in the future.

A year ago, the garden at our new home was a neglected and overgrown mess, and far beyond my capabilities to bring it back to life. I had found North Leeds Garden Design on a website before we moved to Leeds, and it seemed to offer the sort of services that we were looking for. I asked Sarah Johnson to come and look at the project, and we had further site meetings before she produced a detailed plan for the restoration of the garden. I was particularly pleased that this turned out to be the style of garden that we had discussed with Sarah and not something that she wanted to impose on us. The works included new fencing and the grinding out of shrubs’ roots. This part of the project was ably managed by Sarah’s husband, George, who runs his own garden maintenance company. The overall outcome has matched our very high expectations, and we feel that the result has given good value for money. We can’t wait to see the garden in what promises to be all it’s glory in the Spring and Summer.

Having never had a garden design before I wasn’t sure what to expect and if I were to be lucky enough to do it again I would be better prepared. However Sarah and Annabel made up for my lack of research with their knowledge. Sarah was excellent at capturing the brief – which was a bit sketchy – and turning this into a ‘dream’ garden.

The planting scheme is beautiful and I can’t wait to see how the garden ‘blossoms’ in year one. The aftercare service has been great and I know if I have any concerns I could drop them an email.

Great job – thank you! We now have a garden we want to spend time in.

Right from the start North Leeds Garden Design managed to envision exactly how we wanted our new garden to look. There were things we struggled to articulate but Sarah somehow understood and incorporated them so that the final result well exceeded our expectations.

The planting was carefully organised so that there is always something lovely to look at in every season, and Sarah supervised the planting herself. The garden was beautiful right from the start and it is hard to believe it has only just been planted and is not yet fully established. Alongside the garden project there was also major building work going on but NLGD systematically worked around this to pull off an amazing result that we are so pleased with.
