“My large garden has a very steep gradient with poor chalky soil. It lacked both beauty and function and drew comments as to its steepness and unmanageability.   Elaine has transformed the space, using her in-depth knowledge of plants to create stunning areas of interest throughout the garden, tunneled steps covered by fragrant climbers leading to a peaceful terrace for seating. Her strategic use of shape, colour and texture in particularly steep areas has softened the gradient and served to create areas of visual beauty. My garden now attracts really positive comments. This is such an achievement as the whole project was completed within a very tight budget.”
