Philosophy, Beliefs, Approach

I’m Lisa Norton and I’m excited to introduce you to Harrogate Garden Design.

Our company has been borne out of a passion for all things green and a lifelong love of nature. After seeing my vision for my own garden come to life, I was inspired to take up Garden Design as a career, and help others experience the many pleasures and benefits of a beautiful outdoor space.

Our mission here at Harrogate Garden Design is to help you realise the potential of your outdoor space, however big or small that may be. In order that you too can have a beautiful garden in which to enjoy all the benefits of being outside.

We are passionate about the calming effects nature can have on our minds. Hence, biophilic design is a common thread that runs through all our designs. We can create indoor and outdoor restorative planting schemes specifically designed to look beautiful along with providing a calming, peaceful environment. Having access to nature indoors or outdoors is proven to increase productivity and creativity.

I achieved a Diploma in Garden Design in 2018 and am currently studying a Diploma in Biophilic Design .

In our environmentally conscious times, there is a greater demand than ever for functional, well designed outdoor spaces. When you consider some of the advantages a useable, attractive garden can offer, this is hardly surprising. It has been proven that being in nature or even viewing scenes of nature can reduce anger, fear and stress and increase pleasant feelings. Physical wellbeing is also positively affected, with some of the benefits possible being a reduced heart rate and blood pressure and a lower production of stress hormones.
