We wanted our garden to have a Mediterranean look and feel to it but we were struggling to see how we could achieve this in our small plot in Cropwell Butler.

Jackie had the vision we lacked, with her brilliant design ideas and the ability to listen to what we wanted, she was able stick to the brief, even adjusting the plan to meet our budget.

Her clever design and beautiful planting scheme has enabled us to create our very own Mediterranean garden perfect for entertaining, who needs to go on holiday we just need the sun now!

I just wanted to say how fantastic the garden is looking -I love it! I can’t believe how different it is – th curved lawn works really well and the flower beds just look gorgeous at the minute. I particularly love the fox gloves Thank you for all your hard work on this – we’re really pleased, I hope you are too.

‘Jackie has taken our dull, over-grown and unloved garden and worked with us to create something rather wonderful. She listened to our fledgling ideas with patience, ultimately creating a clever and attractive design that met our mulitple needs while maximising space. Jackie combines creativity and practicality – thanks to her we now have a luscious lawn, elegant entertainment areas and gorgeous vibrant flowerbeds – and it is a joy to look out from the kitchen window and see what has been created. We are truly delighted with the end result’

From the first phone call our ideas, concerns and requirements were listened to and then Jackie developed these with her knowledge, experience and professionalism. We were allowed time to consider suggestions and make changes. This led to us having the garden that we had dreamed of for so long – the planting did not meet our expectations but surpassed them. Thank you so much

The proprietor managed the project of re-designing my small garden, drew wonderful plans for me and carried out the work of planting. I am now the proud owner of a garden with plants that the grandchildren can ‘touch and feel’ and the insects like it too.

Having had Olive Tree Garden Design recommended, I was not too surprised at the response to my requirement. What did surprise me was the flair and ingenuity of the designer in taking what was a well developed but uncared for garden and totally changing it into a pleasing whole, evoking comments from all who visited and saw the final result.
It is difficult to praise too highly the design and execution of this not inconsiderable project.

Having completed the hard landscaping of our new garden, the dilemma of what plants to put where, was overwhelming. However, we contacted Jackie and she came up with a fabulous planting scheme for the four different garden areas. We would have no hesitation in recommending Jackie, however large or small your garden project. She is extremely knowledgeable and creative, and we can’t wait to see the garden flourish. Thank you, Jackie.

We absolutely love the garden, it’s been amazing all summer. The plants work so well around the path.

I asked Jackie to completely redesign my garden. After many meetings on site Jackie had a picture in her mind of what I would like my garden to look like. She went away and came back with an amazing design including some hard landscaping. The whole garden was flattened so she then had a flat canvas to work on.
Jackie and I spent several hours and copious cups of tea pouring over the many gardening books she had. We finally had a list of all the plants and the colour scheme.
Jackie was so particular about where she bought the products from, even travelling as far as Norfolk for an olive tree. Everything in my garden is top quality. So much time and thought went into sourcing the plants, going round all the different nurseries until she found exactly what she wanted. It took Jackie several days to plant the garden up but nothing was too much trouble for her.
I am delighted with my garden. I feel I was so lucky to find Jackie and would not hesitate to recommend her.

Jackie is the ideal garden designer. We had a blank canvas and she immediately captured and interpreted the vision we had and drew it in a clear and understandable way, with fantastic attention to detail. It easily enabled us to take it to the next stage. I would highly recommend her services to anyone.

Mrs Joanna Hague West Bridgford

Jackie did a wonderful job for us. She listened carefully to what we liked and our vision of what we wanted our garden to look like (exotic, some tropical themes!), she came up with beautiful, imaginative designs, taking all our requirements into account and then she did all the work on the garden, planting up the whole space, well within the budget we had set for the work!

I would certainly recommend Jackie to anyone who is thinking of transforming their garden or even just developing one aspect of it!
