PlantPlots garden design reviews

All these lovely people have all used our services and this is what they think.

highly recommend Rachel at PlantPlots for any garden design needs. She took time to understand what I wanted as well as offering insightful suggestions. She was then able to interpret and create a vision for the garden with planting recommendations. Her expertise, creativity, and commitment to understanding what I wanted meant working with her was an enjoyable experience and I have the garden design I had envisaged. Five stars well deserved!

Thanks so much Rachel. This is just fantastic. You managed to pack so much into the hour, it was amazing, and I don’t feel overwhelmed, but rather enthused and empowered! I’m so glad I reached out to you. I’ll be glad to leave a review and may yet be in touch again if we need more help. I’ll also happily send more photos once we’re done although I suspect the end of the year might be optimistic! I’m sure we’ll get something done though.

With best wishes and many thanks,

Informative, creative and helpful! I’m excited!
I’ve just finished a 1 hour consultation with Rachel and all I can say is I can’t wait to get started! Rachel was so friendly, informative, accommodating- overall just a great meeting that has helped me get ideas and practical advice to get started and build a vision. Rachel shared images and possible plans of what things might work in my space, discussed plants, placement, and innovative solutions for things like privacy etc.
The hour went by too fast!
Thank you Rachel; I really appreciate your time and expertise.

’m so happy I booked a design consultation with Rachel and would recommend it to anyone. I have struggled for years to figure out what to do with my garden. Rachel asked lots of pertinent questions to identify key problems and help pin down what I truly wanted. She took all of this onboard and suggested a lovely garden design that is both practical and achievable but also a little bit unique and unexpected. She gave excellent advice and followed up the consultation with a set of helpful notes and images. I can’t wait to get started on creating my little wildlife haven. Thank you so much Rachel!

Amazing service
We had no idea where to start with our garden after extending our house and destroying much of the original garden. We didn't know where to locate the patio or where to put paths, let alone what to plant. Rachel's service was incredibly good value. She is so knowledgeable, kind, patient, and a very clear communicator. Her planting plan was very clear and the local nursery said it was the best they'd ever seen. We have now planted everything exactly as per Rachel's plan and can't wait for the spring / summer! Would recommend Rachel to everyone.

Great cost-effective consulting!
It was great to have found Rachel - having a very small garden the details do matter and having an expert looking into it for a small budget was a game changer.

Having been close to the end of summer, we ended up undergoing half of the plan proposed by Rachel, and it already looks much better.

Recommended Rachel to family and friends, great way to get new ideas and a lot of extra knowledge!

A must-have for first-time gardeners
We’re currently in the process of building the garden of our dreams, and Rachel was hugely helpful in getting us going with the PlantPlots design service. As first-time gardeners, we had no idea where to start with landscaping and planting! Rachel has been a much needed guiding light to help us achieve our goals, inspiring us and challenging us to think differently along the way to turn the garden in our heads into reality. Highly recommend.

NB: Site surveys are not carried out, designs are created from customer measurements. As such all measurements are for illustrative purposes only and should not be used to calculate or order quantities of building materials required. We would recommend a more detailed on-site survey and measurement before ordering hard landscaping materials.
