“Living in an AONB, we not only required a landscape design that suited us but also satisfied the local planning authority. Rachel’s skill set of creativity, horticulture, and ability to produce sound architectural drawings was perfect. Rachel took time to understand our brief and produced a scheme that was perfect for us and sensitive to the surrounding countryside. Her service was swift, thoughtful, and creative. We couldn’t have been happier with the result and would not hesitate to use her services again” Fiona Strange, Streatley
