Testimonials

 

"I asked Briony from Bee's Gardens to help me create a town garden from scratch. I had a good idea of the kind of design I wanted but needed someone to create a working technical landscape plan for the builders. With her designers eye Briony took my ideas and sympathetically altered them to come up with a brief which suited and enhanced the space much more than the original sketch. I found it very difficult to envisage a garden in a space where nothing existed and the 3D plans were a huge help in making everything come alive. I didn't need a planting plan but Briony's beautiful mood boards were an inspiration which fed into the final plant and tree choices. We have been delighted with the garden as it has settled in this summer and the design has been much admired. I never thought the project would turn out so well." JE, Summertown.

"Briony’s knowledge of planting and design is second to none. She has an intuitive flair for creating schemes that are both visually effective and hit the client brief. She is very personable and easy to talk to, and really cares about creating a space that goes above and beyond expectations. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Briony to anyone, and have already passed on her details to several friends." JW, Bicester

My garden needs a complete redesign but I can't do it now as I'm having building work done later in the year. I needed advice about what to do with the plants that are already in the garden to save them during the building work and to have them in good places for when I can start work on it properly in about a year's time. I'm quite new to gardening and Briony was fantastic - our 90 minutes in the garden were at exactly the level I needed. I'd completed her well designed, pre-visit questionnaire which meant that we could get down to practicalities  straight away. Briony was focussed on what made sense for me and was practical and supportive. She also made very helpful suggestions on the draft garden layout I had drawn. As she left I felt really enthused to get back out into the garden! Her follow-up email contained so much helpful information that I haven't yet finished reading it. It provides me with information for well into the future. RW, Oxford.
