Gardens for well being based in Oxfordshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and London

‘the garden experience’


want more from your garden?

How do feel when you look at your garden? Inspired, joyful and can’t wait to get outside and see how things are growing?

Or maybe you feel frustrated, guilty or disappointed?

You already know what a difference connecting with nature makes to how you feel. Just imagine what a difference having a garden you love would make to how you feel day to day - and it doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive once you have a clear vision for what you need to do to achieve your dream.

That’s why I have created The Garden Experience - an informative, inspiring and enabling session during which we’ll explore what you’d like and what’s possible given your resources of time, budget and space.

My approach is pragmatic, realistic and life-changing. I’ll help you move from a position of not-knowing to one of feeling confident to move forward.

advice and support

My standalone session - The Garden Experience is designed to give you answers and a rough layout plan (if that’s what you need) with a list of the steps needed to bring your garden to life.

Basically it’s an inspiring, informative and encouraging chunk of time with me in your garden. A chance to ask all your questions, get advice on whatever is puzzling you and feel the reassurance that comes from knowing you have sense-checked your ideas and are on your way to enhancing your life and your wellbeing.


what it is

An enjoyable and inspiring three hours to chat your garden through with me. I will advise on design, layout, style, planting, soil improvement, pruning techniques, furniture and container choice - anything, in fact, to help your garden reach its full potential.   

Choose from the following add ons to gain even more clarity and know-how.

Planting Design: We will create a list of suitable plants for the different areas of your garden whether sunny, shady - all in the style we’ve agreed will work for you and your garden.

To-scale Garden Design: If you’d like to approach landscapers to build your garden you will need a formal drawing with Scope of Works. I am able to give you a price for this once I have seen your garden.

Garden Centre Sweep: A personal shopping trip to choose plants, pots, furniture - whatever will add the wow factor to your new garden. I’ll help you make the most of your budget and then help you position things for best effect.

So much more fun than shopping for clothes with a personal shopper. Sarah has excellent taste and is very practical. Our trip together helped me avoid making expensive mistakes.
