How Do You Feel About Your Garden?

Are you excited by the idea of getting outside and enjoying it?

Or do you feel frustrated and overwhelmed at not knowing where to start? Or saddened you’re not making full use of the space you have?

If you’re in the frustrated, overwhelmed or saddened camp, I hear you. I hear about it all the time.

One of my clients found themselves in the same situation.

They’d bought a home and were renovating it to a really high standard, but their garden was just an empty wasteland. They had a few ideas of what they would like to do with it, but no clue how to turn those ideas into a finished garden. Especially one that matched the quality of the work they were doing to their house.

I worked closely with them (and their architect and builder) to create a garden design that beautifully complimented their stunning new home. I turned all their ideas, and plenty of my own, into a stunning family garden.

The whole project even won an award.

Some of my clients, like the ones above, have ideas but don’t know how to put them together. Others clients just don’t have any ideas at all. But what they do have is a strong feeling they are unhappy with their garden and need to do something about it.

I Understand. And I Can Help You Choose The Best Way Forward

I’m Anna Barker, and I love working with people to turn their frustrating spaces into gardens that are beautiful, exciting and personal to you. 

I specialise in ensuring your new garden reflects your passions and your lifestyle, and most of all, makes you feel happy, not frustrated.

“Anna didn’t just design our garden – she designed our garden for us”

It all begins with a consultation. When you book one with me, I’ll come to your home and take the time to get to know about you, your likes and dislikes and what you want from your new garden.

You can show me your ideas for the garden if you have any (don’t worry if you don’t). The whole process takes about an hour and a half.

If you live within 25 miles of Ashby de la Zouch, where we’re based, the consultation is FREE. If you are further afield, the consultation costs £95 (inc VAT), and if you go on to commission us to design your garden, we’ll deduct the consultation cost from your design fee.

Once the consultation is over I go back to the studio, work out a brief and we take it from there. (You can read more here about our entire garden design process.)

Award-Winning Garden Design

Your garden should be somewhere you love to be. A place you can be proud of.

Take the first step towards enjoying your new garden. Book your initial consultation with me using the form below. Don’t wait too long though, as I do have a waiting list…

Lush Garden Design both designed and planted our wonderful new garden and I would not hesitate in recommending them to others. Anna has been excellent to work with, always willing to give her time and opinion and has stayed in touch to ensure that we remain satisfied with our new garden.

Rob J – Griffydam, Leicestershire

We were delighted from the very first meeting. Anna didn’t just design our garden – she designed our garden for us, taking into account our ideas but also using her imagination and experience to transform it into a beautiful space. Looking after our garden has changed from being a chore to a delight.

Linda C – Duffield, Derbyshire

Our garden was totally overgrown. We wanted a more manageable and contemporary space but we weren’t sure quite what to do with it. Anna was very friendly. She listened to our likes and dislikes regarding initial planning and was happy to alter things with the design and work with us to change things. She fitted in with our plans regarding the planting even though our timing wasn’t ideal.
