" Thank you again for all your hard work in the garden, it is so nice to look out and see so many plants that were previously hidden."​

C.W. (Sherwood)

All year garden consultations, maintenance and planting design. I help you to develop your garden to its full potential and enjoy your garden throughout the seasons.

 

I garden sustainably, using organic methods to work with nature, nurture the soil and put the right plants in the right places so that they thrive.

If you're looking for garden advice, maintenance and/or planting design that's environmentally focused, get in touch, I'd love to talk about how I can help you achieve your garden dreams.

 

Based in Mapperley, Nottingham and working in the surrounding areas.

I'm Verena. I'm an experienced and FdScHort qualified horticulturist with a love for nature, a healthy soil obsession and a passion for plants, and I believe in gardening for the benefit of all.

Do you do garden design? I do soft landscaping planting scheme design which excludes hard landscaping. I can work alongside a hard landscaping company to do a planting design for your new garden, or work with what you already have to renovate the planting areas.

 

Do you take away waste? No. I advise all clients to either consider a home composting set up or to obtain the Local Authority green waste bins for home collection. I can organise collection, if appropriate, for larger clearance jobs at additional cost.
