'We found the whole process of design from the first meeting to discuss ideas and possibilities, to the completed beautiful garden we are now enjoying, an exciting and enjoyable process. Liz was able to combine our different requirements with her knowledge of arts and crafts gardens to produce a design that enhanced the front of our house. We are really pleased with the way the garden has matured, it attracts lots of comments from passers by and the design has proved to be both practical and beautiful. The landscape gardeners who constructed the garden commented on how easy the accurate and detailed plans were to follow . Liz was professional and mindful of our budget and we are so pleased that we chose Liz Coles Garden Design.'
Andrew and Ruth, Letchworth
'We commissioned Liz to design a garden for our cottage in a Devon coastal village. The brief we handed to her was for a low-maintenance garden with an overall relaxed feel, and on a seaside theme with a 'zingy' colour palette of whites, oranges and green. Liz admirably fulfilled our brief, using local stone for low walls and including gravelled terraces and a green area for relaxation. Construction was passed to a local builder who remarked that Liz's garden plans were more precise than many he'd used for house-building! Liz liaised with us on choice of plants and undertook to carry out the planting. The completed garden is a joy to behold!'
Phil and Ruth, Devon
'Liz produced a beautiful plan including materials to be used and a planting scheme... The garden is now in its second year and we are even more happy with it as the plants have matured and thrived.'
'I had one of those tricky areas in the garden which I wanted to make work for family life... three years on I am happier and happier with my raised bed. Liz was careful to spend time talking to me about the colours and types of plants I like, about how much abuse they might get from the football and sticks and about the wish I had to create a peaceful evening seating area for an elderly parent... and a new garden evolved.'
'We were delighted with the plans Liz drew up for our garden - there were several key things she suggested which we would never have thought of which make the garden a delight... Liz is the complete professional and we have been hugely impressed in every step of the design process.' Claire and Stephen, Bath
