~ Matt has completed a One Day Attack garden tidy for our client in Harrow-on-the-Hill. We built the garden back in January 2008 and the client gets us back each year to make sure it is looking good ready for Spring. He was delighted with the transformation and wrote in an email:  ‘Thank you so much for all of this. We really appreciate it and will appreciate it properly at the weekend when we actually get to see it in daylight! Thanks for all the care you took.’


~ Matt has also been out in the garden in Bethnal Green where he has been adding the final touches to a garden we started a few years ago. The clients were having extensive renovation and extension to their basement, and our build was to be phased around the interior work. However the extension was fraught with complications, meaning the works took longer than planned. Matt has returned to lay in pebble mosaic rug, re-paint the raised bed walls and shed, add some planting and fix the lights.


~ Katrina has taken on a new design. The clients want a garden design for their Leytonstone property to match the renovations they are planning for the interior. Their builders will be undertaking the work over the summer, but the clients are keen to have a garden plan in place early to ensure they are clear what they are working towards with the landscaping when the time comes.


~ The interior design for our clients in Romania has been completed. The top floor and ground floor of the property in Bucharest is now planned out and has been sent to the client. You can read all about the design of both areas by clicking here. Katrina is now starting work in the garden design.

~ Work continues on our updated garden design portfolio. As we now produce all our designs in Google Sketchup,  Katrina is re- drawing some of the hand-drawn plans for gardens we have previously built to ensure all the plans in the revised portfolio are representative of what a new client can expect to receive from us. She has a lot of work to do!


~ Our Facebook fan base is increasing.  Our New Year resolution was to try and update it more frequently to let you know what we are up to on a daily basis. If you haven’t yet become a fan, you can do so by clicking here London garden design
