We were very pleased with the work undertaken for us by Liz & Darren. They were able to develop our original brief into a more coherent design across multiple areas of a large garden under a strict timetable. They have a keen eye for detail and are patient and thoughtful in their approach. We continue to work with them and would happily recommend their services to others.

I can’t recommend Darren highly enough, despite the sloping nature and difficult aspect of the site the design brief was delivered seemingly effortlessly. His vision has transformed what was a very dark and problematic sloping garden into a fluid cohesive design, and the new hard landscaping sits very comfortably in its surroundings.
From the creation of the masterplan to the detailing of the hard landscaping, to the final planting plans, Nettles & Petals Design lead you through the exciting emergence of your garden with much time and effort put into answering any queries, making the whole experience smooth and enjoyable.
The finished garden is an absolute delight, throughout the process Darren has shown amazing attention to detail and professionalism whilst always being very approachable.
I have no hesitation in recommending Nettles & Petals Design.
Sheila, Maidencombe, Devon, Project date: May 2018
Liz and Darren took great care to understand what we wanted for our ideal garden, and produced a number of garden designs and planting plans until we were satisfied with the entire project. They helped us find a landscaper and then worked closely with the landscaper to ensure an excellent result with the hardscaping. Nettles and Petals Design are very reliable and worked diligently to our agreed schedule. When our project was complete, they remained interested and available to consult if questions arose.

We are very pleased with the creation of our new garden. Lots of lovely plants that I couldn’t have sourced by myself, and all coming together in a beautiful and cohesive colour scheme. Particularly like the ”tree art” at the front of the house surrounding our old willow tree. Highly recommend Liz and Darren from design through to planting.
Barry & Karen, Elstead, Surrey, Project date: September 2017
We are both delighted by the beautiful end result and hardly want to leave the house, we just want to be in the garden all day.
We thank you so much for your highly professional finish, the planting is a joy and the whole garden flows beautifully.
Gill & Peter, Headley, Hampshire, Project date: May 2017
Thank you Liz and Darren for the excellent work carried out in transforming our garden. We are highly delighted and thrilled with the end result.
We have been very impressed with the quality of work at all stages of the project.
We could not recommend Nettles & Petals Design highly enough.
Michael & Maxine, North Warnborough, Hampshire, Project date: March 2017
Nettles & Petals Design provide an excellent, efficient and very friendly garden design service.
Liz has a real flair for design and colour, creating beautiful vistas and stunning features. Importantly, she is an excellent communicator and ensured, despite our busy family’s life, that we were involved and updated throughout the whole design process. This, along with her practical approach, meant that the project ran smoothly from start to completion.
We would highly recommend Nettles & Petals Design.
Fiona & Dominic, Runfold, Surrey, Project date: November 2016
Liz has worked with us for well over a year through a complicated Town walled garden transformation.
Our journey started with conceptual designs, through to the landscaping specification and tendering. Then to detailed planting plans, costing and finally implementation.
Liz supported our main contractor during the works with the implementation of the level changes, retaining walls and diamond shaped brick herringbone paths. Always at the end of the phone to sort out any last minute tweaks.
Throughout this process Liz demonstrated professionalism, flexibility, understanding, responsiveness and outstanding attention to detail.
Liz’s special talents are in her understanding of plants, creating swathes of colour, textures and heights that now gives our garden a feeling of calm and balance.
Everyone who visits the house without fail comments “wow what a stunning garden” which has made the link between the refurbishment of the house and garden genuinely exceptional.
