  • “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.”

    Mr B & Mrs J Greet

  • “Thank you so much for doing my garden today Joanne. I really so appreciate it. It looks fabulous.”

    Mrs D Russell

  • “Jo, thanks for designing and planting our garde. It’s fabulous and we love it!”

    Mrs M & Mr D Kent

  • “Dear Joanne, many many thanks for making my garden so beautiful and so easy when I do some gardening. Regards.”

    Mrs P Knight

  • “Sorry I was not home when you came to plant my garden but I have to tell you I am delighted with the results, love the trees and all the plants and shrubs. Can’t wait for next year to see all the colours.”

    Mrs C & Mr K Simcox
