Town Centre Rooftop Terrace

Having a terrace was our essential requirement when buying our town centre apartment.

However, in spite of various attempts and different styles, we had never achieved the desired look for our rooftop garden.

Our heartfelt thanks to Lisa, for her expert eye, help and guidance. Her creativity and skills have now given us an outside space that we are totally happy with.

Lisa went above and beyond to make our dream garden a reality. She listened to what we wanted, communicated clearly with the landscape gardener, and responded immediately to any queries or concerns that we had. Her passion for outdoor spaces was palpable and she was fully committed to making our garden as special as possible. Our garden is our Happy Place now, we would recommend Lisa to everyone and anyone, choosing her to design and oversee our project was the best decision we made. Thank you Lisa for everything.

School Wildlife Garden

Lisa has done an outstanding job in transforming an overgrown and underused area of land into a superb garden area, which exceeds the brief that she, was originally given.

The school’s new wellbeing, wildlife garden area cleverly connects areas for growing, exploring learning and coming together for shared activities.

It makes maximum use of the space available and cleverly weaves the themes of sustainability, care for the environment and care for wildlife together in a way, which places the child’s experience at the heart of the design.

Lisa has considered the needs of all children and has made the garden fully open and accessible to children with a wide range of needs. Throughout the process, Lisa has shown the flexibility to adapt her design, involve the whole community and show real dedication and commitment in finding ways to fund the different elements of the project.

The wellbeing, wildlife garden area will be a lasting and sustainable resource for children of all ages to enjoy and learn in a creative and beautifully designed area.

The project has been recognised by Harrogate in Bloom, who presented the school with a special trophy at their annual awards ceremony in recognition of the quality of the garden. It was also part of the towns submitting to the ‘Britain in Bloom’ competition in 2019

I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking to transform their outdoor spaces, gardens and land.

Japanese Front Garden

Lisa has excellent knowledge on different garden styles, she was very thorough in her approach and did a brilliant job at interpreting our desire for a Japanese style garden.

Zen Planting Plan

Lisa really helped us bring our garden alive with her knowledgeable Planting Plan, and went over and above in her effort to make sure everything was perfect. We can’t wait to see how it all grows over the next few years.

School Wildlife Garden

Harrogate Garden Design gets my highest possible recommendation. Lisa has a wealth of creative ideas but ensured she had a clear picture of what we were trying to achieve before starting our project. She transformed an unused area of our school grounds into a haven of tranquility, increasing our biodiversity and providing a space for the children to garden and play. Nothing is ever too much for Lisa- she was a joy to work with. Her eye for detail, passion and commitment to create a spectacular wildlife area was impressive, all within budget. I cannot thank her enough for what she achieved.

Elaine, Huby

Thank you Lisa at Harrogate Garden Design for our stunning garden concept plan delivered this morning. Can’t believe how talented you are and looking forward to seeing the plans come to life.

Patrick and Nicki Day, Harrogate

We asked Lisa at Harrogate Garden Design for a rustic modern eco friendly design suitable for us and grandchildren … the design was superb, the reality absolutely fabulous. Would we recommend her services … 100%!

Fiona, Little Ribston, Wetherby

Lisa has created what was once a small dull patio into a Mediterranean haven.
It was a joy to have Lisa overseeing the whole project, from the implementation of her amazing ideas, coordinating the landscape gardeners and their team, and continuous updates.
Thank you Lisa – you are a star and would highly recommend Harrogate Garden Design.

Caroline, New Build Garden, Harrogate

Lisa was an absolute pleasure to work with. She took the time to completely understand what we wanted from our garden through site visits and emails so much so we didn’t need, or want, to change a single thing from the designs she presented us with. Lisa was on hand to project manage and then source all the plants. I would have no hesitation in recommending Harrogate Garden Design. Our bland new build plot is now transformed to a wonderful space that absolutely has the wow factor!
