Garden Design

Karen is also a garden designer. Her feelings are that each garden space is influenced by her client’s needs and desires. Plant choice appropriate to location and the soil structure is also key. Karen balances this with an appreciation seasonal change, mature plant form, colour, site exposure and  light.
Karen has experience sourcing and maintaining plant material. She is also well versed in living wreaths, topiary, terrariums and creating custom container gardens.
