“I accomplished your fast-track backyard design course in 2020, simply previous to transferring to our new home in mid Suffolk in February 2021. Our new backyard was a clean canvas and I used to be eager to be taught as a lot as I may earlier than attempting to work on a design. I assumed you may prefer to see the outcomes…

However first, a tiny little bit of background. I’m positive you gained’t bear in mind however a few years in the past (I suppose it will need to have been within the late 90s) you probably did a design for our backyard in Gosfield, which was superb!

We liked your design and had many admiring feedback as we developed the backyard over time. But it surely was nearly an acre in complete and we felt the time had come to start out afresh with a brand new, however quite smaller plot.

Our new home stands in about one-third of an acre. It’s an eco-house and may be very modern in design. The backyard is mainly L-shaped and sits on two sides of the home.

The primary part of labor was carried out in July/August 2021. This consisted of the erection of a pergola, a base for the greenhouse, ending the terrace on the rear of the home and placing in a pond subsequent to it, making a border in entrance of the lounge window (within the aspect backyard) and different borders alongside the boundary with the neighbouring property. The second part of labor was accomplished in April 2022.

As of now (Might 2022) there may be nonetheless fairly a little bit of naked earth however I’ve tried to permit for area to develop in my planting plans. Due to you I’ve given lots of thought to leaf form in addition to top and flower color.

“An enormous thanks Rachel. Your course taught me a lot. I liked the best way you place troublesome ideas into simple language; with out it I may by no means have created this backyard. I can’t inform you how a lot sheer pleasure it provides me. It’s not completed (when is a backyard ever completed?!) however I can’t wait to maintain growing it over the approaching years. Thanks once more.”
