our services
Garden design and planning
Through consultation, we help you to define your brief to develop the best plan of action. We talk about the requirements and make notes, which is a great place to start. An initial plan and hand-drawn design to help visualise and discipline the project is advisable.
Personalised coaching
We are committed to a hands-on approach as there is no better way to understand and cultivate a space. We also think that this is the best way anyone can get to know plants and develop a relationship with them as contextualised by their own garden. 
Restoration and maintenance
We make sure your garden gets the care and attention it deserves to stay happy and healthy which means feeding, top dressing, pruning, and tickling. We maintain gardens for landlords letting their properties, families, senior citizens and working professionals.
Workshop development
Schools and community centred learning groups can also have a package designed to suit them individually including a run of workshops. Most recently we ran seed sowing workshops for ‘Stay and play’ at Cypress School, and a childminders group in Norbury.
Creative environments
The outdoor room. The garden. It can be an alchemist's mix up of mud and magic with hidden places for childs play, a nook to read, cook, grow, experiment, build, eat, create. It can be a place to dream, to recharge. What would be your dream garden?
Building soft structures
Using willow, hazel and other non-prepared natural materials to make structures for the garden is a lot of fun and very rewarding. Living willow domes for kids to hide in, tunnels to run through and structures to be later recycled into bean climbing frames.
