Sustainability at the Core

Making Ecosystems that eventually look after themselves leaving you the time to appreciate the good times.

Enter a new paradise

We see the potential. The splendour of the lasting picture. Making the most out of the space afforded us. 

All long for a return to Edenic paradise, of resting in the dappled sun under the boughs of the budding or fruiting trees, with business attended to and the life of the natural world continuing around us.

 

 

 

 

Creating gardens of bliss is our passion. Personal outdoors spaces that are interactive too, with herbs, smells, mutually supportive plants, insect loving flowers and places to rest within it all.

 

Mark produced a gorgeous garden suited to the needs of me & my children, low maintenance, idyllic and delivered excellently in the time frame. It had the best veg & herb patch I’ve ever had.”

Adam Denton

Owner of The Cowshed Group

Mark really transformed our garden. He came up with a beautiful design of a bank of flowers and edible plants and a beautifully shaped decking area below it.  He really has an eye for design and knows his plants really well. He was very reliable and conscientious and worked hard to get the job done in the time he said. I would definitely use him again.

Fiona Bicknell

“Mark completed a very successful four month project on our acre of garden. We warmly recommend him as a professional landscape artist with a fine sensitivity for all the needs of the natural world and the ecofriendly methods that he employs.”
