We offer a professional and personalised service led by RHS Gold medal winning Garden and Landscape Designer Joanne Kennedy.


Joanne Kennedy is a RHS Gold Medal Winner & Best In Show gardener from LeicesterJoanne Kennedy is a fully qualified Garden Designer, gaining a HNC in Garden Design with Distinction, at Pershore Horticultural College in 2006. After leaving her job as a Project Manager in the Civil Service and overseeing projects of all sizes, she set up the Garden Design and planting company Garden Blueprints.

Joanne has always had a passion for gardening and plants and loves to see the garden designs develop into beautiful spaces. In July 2016 that passion came to fruition as she was awarded a RHS Gold Medal and Best in Show in the category ‘Best Blooming Border’ for the show garden ‘The Tale of Hill Top’ at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show.

No garden is too small or too large as each project is treated individually. Whether it is urban or country gardens; back or front gardens; courtyards or large estates; contemporary or traditional, Joanne has experience designing them all!

Joanne is a pre-registered member of the Society of Garden Designers and therefore abides by their code of conduct. She undertakes regular, development training to keep her skills up to date.

Joanne and everyone at Garden Blueprints looks forward to working with you to create your new and beautiful garden!

  • “I approached Garden Blueprints with a selection of garden features that appealed to m e and which were to be incorporated into a design for a small garden space. The size was quite challenging.

    Though consultation during a number of visits, Joanne’s interpretation and final design more than exceeded my expectations. In short, she oversaw all the arrangements from original concept to finished project and even ‘matched’ my taste to a landscape gardener that she felt would work well with me to deliver the desired result.”

    Mrs K Whitehurst

  • “Joanne spent time with us discussing our ideas for the transformation of our garden. She came up with a plan which became the perfect answer for our needs. Her sympathetic planting and garden design has been for us an ongoing delight. I would certainly recommend you to others.”
