Testimonials

"We would like to thank you for creating such a wonderful garden for us. You managed to take our jumbled wish list, add your own creative touches and transform them into a practical and beautiful outside space, that both we and our dog enjoy. The attention to detail throughout the process was very much appreciated and your assistance in project managing the plan from paper to soil we could not have done without."
Mr and Mrs Jones, Wimborne



"Thankyou both for creating such a lovely garden for us. We were most impressed with your designs which took into account our thoughts and ideas whilst at the same time being mindful of what would and would not be suitable for the plot. Thankyou also for your patience and attention to detail. The garden is a pleasurable place to be once again, with a varied range of plants giving all year round interest, we are looking forward to spending many leisurely hours enjoying the newly created seating areas with book and glass of wine in hand!!!"

"Having just moved in to a newly built home, we contacted Florus for help in selecting plants and designing the garden borders and beds. Sue and Carolyn appraised the site, listened to our likes and dislikes, and offered a number of options for us to consider. By explaining and illustrating our potential plant choices we were able to agree a plan and to develop a programme for planting. By visiting and researching local nurseries, Florus sourced the best plants and either arranged for their delivery, or picked them up themselves. The result was that we had all the thrills of garden design, without the hassle of locating everything we needed. The system worked brilliantly and after a few busy days planting we managed to transform our garden.

Sue and Carolyn are very approachable and working with them was good fun. They showed a deep love of plants and garden design, listened carefully to our needs, and sensitively addressed any concerns we had. Importantly they used their knowledge and experience to advise us on plant aftercare and how to get the best from our project in the years ahead.

One year on and we are delighted with the results. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company."

Nigel and Jennie, Dorset

 

"We contacted Florus Garden Design as a result of perusing their excellent website and being impressed by both their design capabilities and choice of planting shown in their before and after photographs.

The two ladies quickly responded to our enquiries with a site visit and meeting to determine our requirements. We wanted them to create a more manageable garden as we headed into retirement. They clearly explained the process and came back to us with four alternatives for a complete revamp of our back garden. We have seven pine-tree preservation orders in place, which also had to be taken into consideration, along with our adult daughter’s industrial sized swing.

The four plans were ‘cherry-picked’ for the features we preferred and a final design agreed. Florus also undertook to contact three landscape contractors for quotations for the hard landscaping. They also supervised this work.

The planting schemes were thoroughly discussed with much input from us [apparently unusual!]. Their choice of varieties and combination of shrubs and perennials was extremely well executed. As a result we have raised beds as well as ground level ones with some planting at its best whatever the season.

After one year, the garden is changing and maturing, despite the horrendous weather of last year, and is looking better than ever.

The ladies also re-jigged the design of the front garden and made suggestions for the side garden, with the result that complementary planting flows throughout.

We would have no hesitation in recommending Florus Garden Design."

Mr and Mrs Towler, Poole.
