About you and your business

Debbie is based in Southampton and works across Hampshire & East Dorset. Her gardens are designed with people in mind and her thoughtful approach ensures that the final design has a very personal touch. This echoes’ Debbie’s philosophy that the best gardens are designed for people and that they should touch their lives in a way that ensures the long term love and care of the garden for the future. The full range of Garden design services supports clients from first meeting to last plant installed. All designs work closely on building a strong relationship with Clients and creating exciting solutions to whatever a site’s problems may present. A unique service provides "Ideas & Inspiration"© plans working up a design idea in an interactive way with Clients. This is both an enjoyable experience and results in a design home owners can feel very much a part of. Debbie has a proven background in working collaboratively with fellow designers, Landscapers and others in associated industries including Architects, Interior designers, and community groups. She operates using Vectorworks and is able to convert plans for most CAD packages. Debbie experience include working on: domestic gardens from the smallest to acres, planting plans and horticultural advice, plant supply and installation, a small public park, an Alzheimer’s care home garden, several pub gardens, a memorial garden, assisted in planting up two Chelsea large show gardens, provided planting plans for Landscapers, created presentation plans to help secure planning or installation of build works. All services are tailored to the clients needs. A collaborative research project with fellow designer Mark Rendell in 2013 investigated what makes care setting gardens more actively used, particuarly for people living with dementia. This lead to the founding of Step Change Design Ltd and the publication of their findings in 'The Care Culture Map and Handbook' which supports both care settings and designers in helping develop actively used gardens to benefit the residents.
