A joyful happy place

SH – had built a fabulous summerhouse but wanted the planting to make it a joyful happy place for the family.

Showstopping front garden

Colourful private space

E F-M shared a garden with the neighbours, so wanted a colourful private space for the family.

Colourful and fun on a low budget

PlantPlots garden design reviews

All these lovely people have all used our services and this is what they think.
Rachel of PlantPlots delivered above and beyond expectations–incredible value! She was able to work with a limited budget and major design challenges (a broad concrete path down the middle of the garden!) to create a beautiful plan with detailed, colorful scale diagrams for our San Francisco backyard garden. Rachel is an enthusiastic and flexible communicator, willing to hear our ideas and brainstorm back and forth with us as the design evolved. She provided an extraordinary amount of detail regarding the proposed plantings for our garden, with color photos, very specific instructions on how to care for the many different species, and what to anticipate as the garden matures. At the outset, we weren’t sure what to expect, but we were thrilled with the remarkable level of service that Rachel provided for the modest cost.

Finding Rachel’s website was the best thing I could have done and well worth the affordable fee, which was a lot lower than I expected. I wanted a design for a ‘prairie style’ border in my garden. Rachel went above and beyond with her help and advice, she was lovely and so enthusiastic. Within days she had done a fantastic border design for me, with tips and a detailed plant list. Once she had got a good idea of what I wanted through photos, emails and telephone conversations she produced a detailed coloured design plan showing where plants could go and how many of each to get, it was very easy to follow and understand. She also helped with advice on which plants do better for my situation and how to care for the border and other plants that could be grown too. I can’t wait to get started, I would never have thought of what was possible. Thank you Rachel.
We did not know where to begin to help change our windy uninspiring back garden. Originally we thought we would be just replacing old slabs to new and adding potted plants , but then we found Plantplots.. We were inspired by Rachel’s designs and attention to detail. She was so helpful and quick in responding to any questions we asked and was able to find out our dislikes and likes in our own timescale. She came up with ideas we hadn’t even thought of to hide our ugly down pipe and to add colour to a dull corner. Rachel’s plans are colourful and easy to understand, giving us hope that our final garden is going to be enjoyable to spend time in..and perhaps become possible budding gardeners in the process. Instead of spending an unknown amount on expensive plants that may not survive or look right we feel confident to try out a balanced selection within our budget and can plan it over the year when we get the landscaping finalised. Thanks again Rachel..looking forward to a garden we can enjoy very soon and would use your skills again for any other project in the future.
Plantplots is a fantastic resource for anyone who -like me- has very little gardening experience and is struggling to create a special garden to enjoy. Rachel was amazing! Very supportive, creative and fun to work with. She was very patient while I was hesitating over different options and being anxious about designing a new garden from scratch. She spent a lot of time on the phone with me getting to know my preferences and then produced a great design, which I loved! Rachel was very knowledgeable in creating a fantastic mosaic of flowers ( many completely unknown to me) for my borders, working with my preferences for a more natural, insect- friendly and sustainable garden, and within my budget. I am now looking forward to putting these ideas into reality! Huge thank you, Rachel!
