We had puzzled for ten years on how to convert our steeply sloping woodland plot on the edge of the Peak District into a usable garden. When we discovered Jacquetta Menzies we immediately felt that she understood our dilemma and was on the same wavelength.

Many thanks to Jacquetta for transforming our very steep and steadily collapsing garden.  We now have a plot with clearly defined zones that work perfectly for us.  Jacquetta’s design has turned our garden into something very special which we now spend as much time in as possible.

A colourful, imaginative transformation from chaos, attractive to people, bees,birds and butterflies.

A good example of a design for a challenging exposed site which demonstrates the designer’s clear analysis of site conditions and the clients’ requirements. The local stone walls and paving provided a real challenge to the knowledge and creativity of the designer and skill of the contractor.


A much needed campaign has been launched by the @societyofgardendesigners . For soil health for wildlife and human health, don’t use plastic grass. Avoid plastic in the garden. Support this campaign.


Time to winter prune the old apple tree. Not going to be easy.
