“I PASSIONATELY BELIEVE a well-designed garden is one that looks harmonious with its surroundings. Working with both the natural environment, style of house as well as the wider landscape, I interpret my clients' wishes to ensure the gardens I create are not just visually stunning but look as if they were always meant to be there. Using a fusion of both ornamental and natural planting, my designs encourage wildlife into the garden to create a vibrant haven for all and a feast for the senses."

Designed, built and maintained for free by Kristina Clode Garden Design, with the help of school volunteers, this is a floriferous, drought tolerant, wildlife friendly gravel garden which is never watered. It's a feast for the senses with lots of scented plants, different textures, dynamic changes in plant height over the seasons and glorious colour!

This garden won the 'Judges' Award' and 'The Design for the Environment' Award at the Society of Garden Designers 2021 Awards.
