I loved my design from PlantPlots
I loved my design from PlantPlots! The company was very responsive, and the plan really fit my style. The more I look at it, the more I like it! I look forward to using them again next year to get a design for my back yard as well as the front.  HJ  Jul 2017.


We moved to a new house, with a decent enough garden, which we could see had potential but we just didn’t have the expertise to know how to maximise that potential.
We did not want to pay landscape gardener prices, and my husband is quite happy to get his hands muddy, so it was a case of seeking expert advice rather than ‘getting someone in to do it’.
Rachel McCartain is certainly an expert! She listened to what we liked and disliked about the garden and responded to what we wanted. She also came up with some more ambitious plans for making the back flower bed really stunning; frankly, we would have wandered around a garden centre, bought some random stuff, spent a fortune and not achieved anything half as nice!
The plans are really user-friendly and I liked the fact that she understood we were on a budget. Having just bought a house, we were keen to make it our own but certainly not in a position to be splashing oodles of cash.
If you are needing some inspiration, or have a gardening problem that needs solving, then I really recommend PlantPlots. I couldn’t find any other company that offers exactly the same service, so I’m glad I found them. AM May 2017.


I bought a house with a large garden a couple of years and, although the garden was in a reasonable state, it had since deteriorated over that time simply because I didn’t know the first thing about gardening. I was baffled by all the gardening terminology, confused about pruning, didn’t know a herbaceous from a deciduous. Most gardening websites just don’t simplify things for novices so trying to figure out a suitable planting scheme was a nightmare. But, all that changed when I came across PlantPlots.
Rachel McCartain is a genius.  (editor note – we liked this line!)
The gardening information on the website is clear and easy to understand – even for an absolute beginner – but it is her garden design service that is truly incredible. After only a couple of email exchanges about my requirements, Rachel provided a complete garden design pack. 
This included a list of what to plant and where to plant it, how to disguise my ugly shed, tips on how to make the most of the garden space and, most important, advice on how to look after the plants at different times of the year.
The design Rachel provided is amazing in so many ways. Not only does it look incredible but it was completed easily (without relying on the services of tradesmen), cheaply (all the plants were easily sourced and suited the pocket) and quickly (finished over the course of two full-weekends).
I now have a beautiful garden just in time for the summer. I can’t thank Rachel enough and I know that PlantPlots will be a huge success.   JH Apr 2017

This is fantastic! I love the design! Thank you for your creativity and the careful thought you have put into the design. Also for the added tips and ideas.
You have done a wonderful job. I am more than happy to post a review on Facebook.
Wishing you all the best. I’m sure PlantPlots will be a huge success. LS Apr 2017

Thanks for your very helpful suggestions and advice. I now have several designs in my basket  AC: Mar 2017

Thanks so much for my ‘Jewel Box’ garden. I absolutely love it…the colours are amazing and I love the idea of the mirrors and the metal art work.
With all the advice that comes with the plans, I’m positive that I will be able to maintain it easily and keep it looking as good as the drawings.  JH: Apr 2017

Well your black fence and colourful pots idea worked a treat. The estate agent put the asking price up, we sold in 2 days, for over what we expected to get. All the viewers put in offers and loved the garden.
I can’t recommend PlantPlots enough: we did a day and a half’s work and transformed our garden so that we could sell out house.
I’ll be back for help with my new (much bigger) garden. Thanks very much 🙂 AM Aug 2015

Very Impressed with my garden design from PlantPlots. Rachel had lots of ideas for things I could do to improve my garden and was very knowledgeable about the plants that would be suitable.
She was able to give me a clear idea about how the plot would look by photoshopping pictures of the plants onto my original photo.
She also gave me information on how to prepare the plot, when to plant and how to care for the recommended plants. A great service and very reasonable. SW: Apr 2015

I wish I’d had help from PlantPots when we bought our first house with a garden, 6 years ago. As a lifelong city-dweller, my horticultural knowledge extended no further than occasionally remembering to water my spider plant.
I enthusiastically raided B&Q. picking everything that looked pretty, and inevitably ended up with a bizarre looking hotch-potch, and a lot of abject failures.
I wouldn’t have wanted a gardener, as the fun is in getting your own hands dirty and watching the fruits of your labour flourish, but looking back, I really needed some guidance, and paying PlantPlots would have saved me a lot of money on dead plants!
This is a great investment for those with the desire to create a lovely garden, but rather lacking in the know-how and big-budget department.
I will definitely be buying one of the designs when we finally get around to buying a new house. JWM Apr 2015


Many thanks for coming back so quickly with the design.
Can’t wait to receive it and get stated on my journey to a beautiful garden.  LS: Apr 2017
