Happy clients are the lifeblood of our business and we actively request feedback on our garden design services once projects are completed. This is how we make sure every new project, however large or small, is created with the same attention to detail and quality as the last. If you’d like to discuss how our garden design services can help transform your garden, please contact us.

Following some fairly major building works we wanted to remodel our front garden but were stuck for ideas. We found Christine via a web search and were sufficiently impressed to ask her for a consultation. At all stages Christine was constructive, innovative, professional and always ready to listen. The end result is a true testament to her creativity.

Christine was recommended to us by our landscape gardener, as we had very specific ideas for our garden and obviously needed professional help! She listened to what we wanted and drew up plans that needed hardly any adjustments. Christine turned our dream garden into a reality. She was professional and took on board exactly what we wanted. The garden now looks just like the plans Christine drew up for us. We are extremely happy with the outcome and would highly recommend Christine.

Christine came to replace another designer who had let us down so she was operating within a tight timescale. Christine listened to our needs and came up with an imaginative design to replace a tired and worn out garden. She then coordinated the landscapers, electricians and surveyor. When an unforeseen problem emerged she quickly came up with a solution so that the project kept moving forward. The end result was a garden completed within the tight time frame and one that definitely has the ‘wow’ factor.'

After many years as an unused "children only" wilderness zone, Christine has transformed the bottom of our garden and revealed space we never appreciated we had. This included some tricky considerations including how to connect this zone to the rest of the garden, different ground levels, some large trees and an existing building structure. We now have decking, beautiful espalier pear trees, a series of beds on different levels and a wildlife pond. The space works really well and we are using all of it to enjoy our garden fully. Christine has a collaborative approach and listens to ideas as well as providing her own. She makes a great partner for a project - she is professional, practical and patient which is what you need to get the design and planting scheme to achieve the right result. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Christine.

—  Mrs MD, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire

My garden has just been completed and am absolutely thrilled with Christine's design. She understood the brief well and thought outside the box to provide effective solutions to a number of tricky problems, in particular a 30ft hedge at the bottom of the garden which doesn't belong to us. When it came to the planting scheme Christine patiently listened to my many preferences and has come up with a scheme which should provide lots of colour all year. Christine is very easy to work with she is always available and the costs for her work are very reasonable.

—  Mrs AG, Amersham, Buckinghamshire

Following some fairly major building works we wanted to remodel our front garden but were stuck for ideas. We found Christine via a web search and were sufficiently impressed to ask her for a consultation. We very much liked her approach and the ideas that she came up with, both as regards layout and planting. As the design moved forward the brief expanded as we asked her for advice about our rear garden. Thus her ideas for that became part of a rather larger project! At all stages Christine was constructive, innovative, professional and always ready to listen. She was also effective in helping us to select a garden contractor and in overseeing their work at key stages. The end result is a true testament to her creativity.

—  Mrs GM, Frieth, Buckinghamshire

"Christine produced the most wonderful design for a very tricky area in our garden. She worked with us, understanding all our requirements to create a wonderful space. The selection of plants/trees are superb and her knowledge is extensive. She is very easy to get along with and we had great fun ! She will be at the top of our list for any further projects!"

—  Mrs MD, Chalfont St Giles, Buckinghamshire

"Christine helped us give our garden a much needed makeover. She was great. Open, friendly and honest in her opinions. She had some great ideas but she also listened to what we wanted and took everything onboard. Her communication throughout was excellent and she had a top crew working for her who did a fantastic job bringing it all to life. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending her to anyone and would use her again in a heartbeat."

—  Mr SR, Amersham, Buckinghamshire

It was a pleasure working with Christine on this small but complex project. Christine understood the challenges and our brief and created our garden from scratch. We love the finished result and feel Christine has delivered us a real wow garden, it is great knowing that over the years as the plants she recommended become established it will be even more fabulous. We can't recommend Christine enough, her professionalism, knowledge and insights made this an exciting project to work on.

—  Ms JH, Pinner, Middlesex

"Fitted around our timescales and did an exceptional job, couldn't ask for more. Assistance with setting out and planting was invaluable."

—  Mr SL, Radnage, Buckinghamshire

We engaged Christine to design us a large patio with associated landscaping, paths and planting. We would heartily recommend her, she listened to what we wanted (not always the case) and adjusted her designs in response to our comments. Christine was always on time and delivered the project on time and to budget. The landscapers were superb despite having to work in atrocious weather conditions and we are very happy with the results.

—  Mr DH, Holyport, Berkshire

"In the past my uninspiring 100-foot north facing slightly sloping garden had been used as a football pitch by my son and his friends! When I met Christine and discussed my ideas for transforming my garden there was an instant ‘meeting of minds’. I was keen to achieve sequential colour and interest throughout the year and to keep the look of the garden sympathetic to the white rendered walls of the house. After sharing my thoughts of what I wanted to achieve, she produced an inspirational design to turn it into an extension of my home that achieved just the right balance between the structure and symmetry that I desired without it feeling too formal. The process was very straightforward and with Christine’s efficiency and attention to detail we achieved the design in a very short space of time."

—  Mrs CK, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire

Christine has designed our front and back gardens and has done a great job with both. The gardens are quite different (one country, the other more formal), so she is able to adapt to different styles. She was very good at listening to our requirements, but also contributed lots of her own thoughts and suggestions. Christine is very knowledgeable about all aspects of garden design; e.g. flowers, shrubs, pathways, materials etc., so was able to deal with all the elements and did not need to point us in other people's direction for various matters. She was also very efficient in terms of responding to any queries we had throughout the process and presented her plans on schedule, so our gardens were finished on schedule. She has also been available for any follow-up questions we may have. I would definitely recommend Christine for garden design work.

—  Ms KvdK, Wigginton, Hertfordshire

"For the 12 years we have lived in our house we could never decide upon the front garden/driveway, which had become a jungle. We found Christine and against all the odds she has come up with something that is both drive and garden that perfectly blend together. We now have our front of house full of textures and colour. Christine was available for any queries as the build progressed, seemingly day and night, and was so helpful with choice of materials. Best of all she has a great sense of humour and can deal with any mad idea that is thrown at her and make it workable. Mad not to use her then!"

—  Ms SD, Acton, west London

"Christine has transformed our garden and given it a new life. It is exactly how we imagined it would be after she produced the plans. We loved her energy, enthusiasm and sound judgement. She is so client-focussed and develops the vision for the new garden for you, and yet with you at the same time. We would recommend her and her work without hesitation."

—  Mrs JL, Watford, Hertfordshire

"Our back garden had been used as a play area for our children for many years and was badly in need of a make-over. We had some idea of what we wanted and Christine managed to translate and add to those ideas and turn the garden into one that exceeded our expectations. She is a pleasure to work with, as was the landscaper she suggested, who put her plans into action. We would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a garden designer - and we will!"

—  Mrs AC, Ruislip, Middlesex

"Working with Christine is a pure joy and her enthusiasm for what she does is both rare and infectious. Without doubt she was the lynchpin for our council project. We had worked for two years planning, presenting and cajoling Hounslow to replant a raised bed on Chiswick High Road. When Christine arrived on the project it’s as if she brought her fairy wand and all our troubles went away. Now we have a magnificent view where once there were only weeds.”"

—  Mr DL, Chiswick, west London

"Christine came up with a design that we could not have conceived, and it works so well. She set out a detailed plan for the landscapers to follow, and sorted out any queries. The whole process was painless and now we have a beautiful garden to show for it. Thank you, Christine."

—  Mrs GF, Acton, west London

"At our first meeting Christine listened very carefully to what we wanted and then came up with lots of original ideas and the most gorgeous plan for our garden. We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it on paper. She then worked with the landscaper and consequently we have the garden that we always wanted: a place where we can relax and watch the seasons changing. We are really pleased with it and the results are stunning. We love looking at it and spending time in it."

—  Mr & Mrs F, Harrow, Middlesex

"The area to the back of our house was in a fairly derelict state and we enlisted Christine's help in transforming it into an area with plenty of plant life, as well as somewhere we could sit. We also asked her to come up with some ideas for turning the front garden into a cottage-type garden. From the start she took to the project with great enthusiasm and came up with lots of ideas that chimed in well with our wishes. She has a very good knowledge of plants and is also able and willing to do background research. She was very responsive to changes from our part and suggested a firm to carry out the work, who did an excellent job. We were delighted with the outcome and would have no hesitation in recommending her to others."

—  Ms MF, Harrow, Middlesex

"It has been a great pleasure to work with Christine who has transformed not only the garden but also the look of the house in its setting. From the outset she listened patiently and designed a garden that not only met the spec but enhanced the plot with carefully balanced proportions. Following the design process project managed the site during construction ensuring deadlines were kept to despite the vagaries of the English weather! I am also particularly glad to have her aftercare guide for the garden so that I am able to maintain the plants when necessary. It is now a great pleasure to look out of the window and see how everything is doing."

—  Mrs JN, Hatch End, Middlesex

"The garden at our new home consisted of a patio and green grass and we were looking forward to transforming it into something special. Along came Christine and to our delight, she was as excited as we were about the potential of our garden. We talked about the style of garden we wanted, what plants we liked, what colours we loved and what kind of atmosphere we wanted to create. Christine had lots of wonderful original ideas. She made us feel as though we were in partnership with her and together we went on a design journey. The result is a stunning garden which has exceeded our dreams."

—  JK, Hatch End, Middlesex

"Christine was the perfect partner in our project to create a new garden. She brought many ideas to the table, but listened to what we wanted and worked within that framework. We would have no hesitation in recommending Christine Wilkie Garden Design to anyone considering employing a garden designer."

—  PB, Pinner, Middlesex

"Christine has given me the garden I’ve always wanted. I was very impressed with the amount of time she spent planning and explaining the options that were available and the professional service provided. Through her design ideas, Christine has helped bring colour and intrigue to my garden. Now my garden is the perfect place to spend time in all year round."

—  MC, Enfield, Middlesex

"Christine has been a pleasure to deal with and was able to work with us, quickly and creatively. We had a tight deadline and budget but she was able to design to this and come up with a layout which we love. It has achieved wonders with our small garden and is much admired. We've had lots of nice comments about the garden and it's been a joy to escape to."

—  AM, Ealing, west London

"My garden has been transformed from a shabby dumping ground to a beautiful oasis. I absolutely love it! We now have usable outside space and effectively two extra rooms in which to entertain friends. I am so glad that we made the investment. Not only has it changed our living space but its added value to our home."

—  SS, Catford, London
