This garden was constructed by the client.

Client Testimonial:

“It has been a privilege working with Ann for the past 3 years. We moved to Mudeford, Dorset and designed and built a contemporary house by the coast, it is a self build. Ann designed the front and back garden and provided detailed plans which included planting schedules, her experience and professionalism throughout the project has been outstanding. We are now coming to the end of the project and the result is amazing.”
