What people are saying

Thanks to all my clients for their comments – here are a few edited highlights from some recent letters of recommendation.

 “It has been a pleasure working with Kate over the many months we have been transforming our garden.  She has inspired us with her plant knowledge, prepared numerous specific planting plans with various themes and helped us implement these to make our dream garden and wildlife haven.  I have no hesitation recommending her whatever your project might be.” A garden of heritage orchards, woodland walks, wildflower meadows and classical herbaceous borders for a country house.

“We have very much enjoyed working with you.  We would never have dared to make such changes to our garden on our own and would not have thought of most of them!  You have not imposed your ideas but have been gently persuasive.” Landscape splendour for a Cotswold country house.

“…we were utterly overawed by the scale of the problem we faced and you gave us the confidence to tackle it all and turn it into something far superior.  We would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.” A theatrical, showpiece garden making rooms with views.   

“It is with huge delight and gratitude that I wish to recommend the services of Kate Smart as a garden designer of outstanding ability and inspiration.  Today, as I suspect for many years ahead, I am thrilled to look out at a picture of stunning design.” Contemporary cottage garden for a beautiful barn conversion.

“Thank you for your thoughtful, interesting, sensitive, responsive and enchanting ideas for the garden.”  Classically elegant garden for a farm house.

“It was a difficult choice to make from many imaginative options presented by Kate but having chosen the design she then produced a comprehensive list of plants and planting plan that clearly reflects her expertise as a horticulturalist”  Frothy, pastel planting for a country cottage.

“You came up with a very imaginative and practical design, meeting our requirements for something easy to maintain whilst being elegant and contemporary.  The final result is amazing and we would recommend anyone to use your service for a hassle free, creative and functional solution.”  Townhouse chic on a budget.
