Designing a garden for a client is an honor and a pleasure. I like to meet you and conduct a detailed survey of your needs and wants, how the garden will be used, etc. This will allow me to propose a garden design that will reflect and hopefully exceed your expectations.
English Gardens and Designs is based in Riverside, CT, and works locally to design and install residential gardens with a flair of “Englishness”. As the owner, Sandy will always be on site to manage her well trained crew to create gardens of all sizes, each one totally unique, like it’s owner.
We offer a full range of services from design, installation, to regular maintenance. We will manage all aspects of your projects, including bringing in contractors for irrigation, lighting, tree work, hardscaping and any other specific requirements you may have. Gardens are not created overnight, and I recommend developing your garden in phases with different installations over the years to suit your budget and evolving taste and preferences.
We are particularly committed to preserving the environment and, where possible, endeavor to design gardens with a view to improving habitat, conserving resources and using sustainable organic materials. We remain aware of how important sustainable landscaping is to the future.
We also support local businesses by supplying plants and materials from nearby, high quality nurseries, providing the best plants for your garden.
