“….comprehensive consultation process, with informed recommendations….”

Our garden of random plants without order has been transformed since Diane applied her garden design skills and plant recommendations. With new plantings in fresh garden beds, with a more structured and geometrical approach we are now waiting for the warmer weather to see the full benefit of our new garden. Diane provided a comprehensive consultation process, with informed recommendations and followed up a few weeks after planting to make sure we were on the right track. Thank you very much, Diane

“….Diane has designed a garden that will bring us great enjoyment for many years ahead.”

Diane was extremely thorough in her preparation of our garden design. She listened closely to our ideas and preferences, and made a real effort to understand our family life so that she could design a garden that would suit our needs. While we are yet to implement the plans, we feel confident that Diane has designed a garden that will bring us great enjoyment for many years ahead.



“…. an organic design where the different spaces flow into each other beautifully.”

My husband and I recently moved to a new home after 35 years spent renovating our first home, raising a family and creating a wonderful cottage-style garden.
Our new garden is a very neat, formal garden and, although a popular style at the moment, I don’t find it very inspiring.
We heard about ‘Garden Design’ week and decided to visit a few local gardens for some ideas. I loved Diane’s back garden so we asked her to help us design a back garden which retained some of the lawn area for grandchildren to play in, included an outdoor entertaining space and spaces for a range of ornamental and edible plants. We met with Diane and had a few meetings where we discussed our needs and wishes. With understanding, knowledge and expertise Diane provided us with a complete garden plan incorporating a couple of must-have trees, entertainment area and pizza oven, vegetable and ornamental beds in an organic design where the different spaces flow into each other beautifully.
Although we haven’t completed the garden yet, I am confident that it will be a beautiful place in which to sit and read, potter about in and spend time with family and friends.
Thank you Diane, I’m sure we’ll contact you once we can begin landscaping. I can’t wait!

“We are delighted with the overall design”

Dear Diane,

Thank you for your master plan for our garden. We appreciate the skills that you brought to the task, and your understanding of our needs and our preferences. We are delighted with the overall design.
You were easy to communicate with, sharing your own expertise while listening also to our ideas and we look forward to working with you again to implement the work.

“Sustainable low maintenance feature to compliment the front of our home”

Dear Diane

Just wanted to send you a letter of thanks.

Our garden is finished and we could not be happier with the end result.

We recognize that our little project was a challenge, not only due to the west facing aspect of our front small garden but that both Roger and I had different tastes in plants and styles.

You managed to design a garden that has provided a look that not only incorporated both our ideas but you have chosen plants and foliage the will not only look good but will provide us a very sustainable low maintenance feature to compliment the front of our home.

Thanks again for your patience and creativity.

Sincerely Tracey & Roger

“It was a great pleasure to work with you”

Hi Diane,

I just wanted to thank you for helping us to design a new garden, front and back that could be executed in stages.

It was a great pleasure to work with you. You were understanding of our needs, had great attention to detail and provided sound advice.

We are very happy with the outcome you were able to achieve and would not hesitate in recommending you to others for your garden design expertise and responsiveness to clients.

Warm regards


“We have received so many compliments from the neighbours”

Diane listened carefully to our brief and designed a beautiful garden, with planting and maintenance schedule meticulously documented. Existing shrubs and trees were kept where possible and she created a garden that is appealing all year round and enjoyable to look after.
She has also followed-up to check on whether it is all working and provided advice. We have received so many compliments from the neighbours!
Thank you.


“A garden which complements my home and is easily maintained”

Beddison Garden Designs understood my brief and produced an imaginative design which could be implemented within budget. The layout and planting schedule was clearly documented and I felt I had a good understanding of the concept. The result has been a garden which complements my home and is easily maintained.


“We were able to implement the plan quickly and with ease due to the thoroughness of your document”

Dear Diane,

After renovating our home it was clear our garden needed updating also. However with no green thumb or knowledge of plants I was excited to have the opportunity to use Beddison Garden Designs to help me to get it right.

I was very impressed with our initial meeting where you really understood the type of garden I wanted in terms of appearance and maintenance. Your documentation plan including materials notes and plant schedule and planting plan was professional and I must say beyond my expectations.

We were able to implement the plan quickly and with ease due to the thoroughness of your document.
It is with great pleasure that I now sit in my beautiful new garden designed by you!
I won’t hesitate in recommending you whenever possible.

“achieve our goals including those relating to budget and sustainability”

Hi Diane

I appreciate how you worked with me during the design process to achieve our goals including those relating to budget and sustainability. You were always punctual and considerate of the household in your visits.

It was easy to communicate with you as you were very ready to consider my own ideas while being able to offer the help and knowledge of a trained professional.

Thanks for your practical yet elegant design. The design seamlessly incorporates our existing planting with improved paths and driveway and the addition of a timber pergola for shade.

The site plans and construction drawings you provided for the building permit are much appreciated.

We would be very happy to recommend your work.

Kind regards
