Heather Dale Garden design transformed the front garden of our property. Heather worked closely with us on this project and advised us on various aspects of design. We would not hesitate to recommend this company.
Heather listened very carefully to my brief as I wanted to create a woodland garden. She designed my garden so it looks completely natural and in keeping with the landscape. Her expertise lies not only in her design, but her in-depth knowledge of plants. She creates planting schemes that have varied colour, texture and all year round interest and sources the right particular species and size for your garden at wholesale prices. Her dedication is an inspiration.
Heather listened to and understood my brief. She appreciated the issues and her recommendations addressed them extremely well. She encouraged me to be brave and make decisions to relocate or remove some established plants that had an immediate and positive impact. The final design has had a massive effect on the garden giving it renewed balance and structure. She has created new vistas and lines for the eye to follow that bring me pleasure every day.
Heather was recommended to me by a friend and I was immediately impressed with Heather's approach to my garden design. Always putting the clients interests first and listening to what I liked very carefully before making her proposals and ideas. Needles to say because of her excellent skills in dealing with a client who only had a very vague idea of what he wanted from what was the remains of a very tired old garden that had builders camped in it for nearly three years, she took it from that to the most picturesque garden I have ever had. The plants she chose have worked so well that now summer has arrived you would think the garden had been carefully cultivated for several years. I am very proud of the results Heather has achieved for me. Myself and all my friends admire it daily, it's just fantastic. Thank you Heather.
I was first drawn to Heather by the colour and style of some of the gardens she has designed. She brought great ideas to me along with a vast knowledge of plants suitable for NE Scotland. After a few reiterations we got to the design I wanted. Her work methodology and attention to detail really stood out. The project cost was reasonable and came in within my budget and overall I think very good value.
It was great working with Heather. She really listened to what we needed and transformed our city garden into a haven for us with a space for the children to play, and kept well within our budget. She has a great knowledge of plants and an attention to detail that we really appreciated. I would definitely recommend Heather.
We gave Heather what must have seemed quite an unattractive brief - to redesign about one third of our garden including the small front garden and a side passage, together with visually shielding a recent extension by a neighbour. We were delighted with the approach she used to allow us to articulate things we liked, and we ended up with a highly innovative use of the space through a design that was both practical and attractive. She helped us with the contract process and we asked her to oversee the resulting work. She worked well with our chosen contractor, and the final outcome very much exceeded our expectations. We continue to delight in the garden she has created for us. We have no hesitation in recommending her.
When I asked someone to design a garden for us, we were hoping for someone who would listen to our wishes, who would design our garden *with* us (as well as for us), and who would arrange for the plan to be implemented capably. Heather did all these things,for us, and she did them in a punctual, sensitive (not unimportant when you share the garden with neighbours!), and tasteful manner, without breaking the limits of our budget. The result is very pleasing.
Really, we could not have hoped for more.
Heather listened to our our thoughts and wishes, added some ideas of her own and the result was fantastic. We were presented with a beautiful illustrated design, a comprehensive plant care list and a step by step guide on how to achieve the vision. We enlisted her help for the actual planting stage too and we now have a lovely garden that has survived 4 children playing in it and more recently, a very energetic puppy! It amazes us every year when it starts to bloom and we would highly recommend Heather.
