Rachel loves the challenge of taking a bland and inefficient space and working with its quirks to come up with a design that will result in a relaxing area that is easy to maintain. A property’s garden and landscaping should work in with your life and demands and should be a pleasure not an extra workload. Rachel's designs are tailored to your tastes and preferences while also ensuring the garden can be maintained according to the client’s capabilities and time allowance.

Rachel specialises in planting plans to help simplify the process of choosing plants that are suitable for your outdoor living areas and lifestyle.
