Garden Design

❝ Laura Ient of Garden Inspiration has certainly inspired us to overhaul our very long and narrow garden with work now commencing from the designs Laura created for us.  From the initial thorough interview on our thoughts and ideas for the garden, Laura was able to suggest suitable solutions to incorporate all of our needs.  Laura created a cottage garden theme as per our request to include among other things varied beds, a brick path, wildlife section and ponds, fruit cordons, patio area and lots of creative ideas to section the garden into different areas.

Throughout the process we were consulted and we were able to interact with Laura when we spotted other ideas we may like to incorporate.  The drawing’s and documentation prepared are beautiful and very detailed. Once the design is completed we will frame them and keep them on show in our home as they are a work of art on their own ❞
Louise and Guy,  Horne

❝ We were delighted with the garden design Laura created for us. She listened to our ideas and was an expert at asking clever questions and guiding us to enable her to get a vision of the type of style we wanted, even though we were not sure ourselves! The result was a beautifully crafted design which we can’t wait to bring to life ❞
Lucy, Oxted

Planting design

❝ I would recommend Laura 100%. Her knowledge and enthusiasm is amazing.  Where I once had a very overgrown and ugly conifer hedge I now have a beautiful border full of cottage style shrubs and plants.  I love my garden ❞
June, Redhill

❝ Laura of Garden Inspiration has designed several borders in my garden. She is a very knowledgable plantswoman and full of enthusiasm. I’ve been very happy with the results ❞ JW Surrey

❝ Laura has been my ‘pot consultant’ for about 12 years. We have about 35 terracotta pots of many different shapes and sizes around our house and garden, and it has been our indulgence to have Laura come to renew the pots twice per year. She always leaves us with a fantastic collection of planted pots which continually change and develop, and keep our interest throughout both winter and summer seasons. She has a very good knowledge of plants, a great eye for design, and amazing recall. She always provides detailed notes on what she has planted, as well as taking excellent photos of each season’s pot designs, so we are now lucky to have a complete record of all the displays she has created for us over the years

I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with injecting life, fun and variety back into their garden. She is also very friendly and good company! ❞
Antonia, Reigate

Gardening coaching

❝ Garden Inspiration… can also be described as “Garden Rescue”. I have called on Laura to unravel numerous mysteries and provide guidance in the face of clay soil, north-facing walls and  languishing plant-life. Deeply knowledgeable, always thoughtful and thoroughly reliable, Garden Inspiration has revived my wisteria, protected my giant magnolia and solved the mystery of fungally infected, failing flora. I could not recommend Laura highly enough ❞ Eddie, Sevenoaks

❝ Laura was very helpful, we had a large mature flower bed full of perennials that needed a major overhaul. We didn’t have a clue how to go about this. She advised us on what the plants were and what to do with them and surprisingly everything survived our digging ❞ Melvin, Reigate

Garden know-how experience – How to create a wildlife garden:

“Fantastic wildlife garden workshop last week. Fun, learnt a lot, thought-provoking” Sue, Horley

“With all the info you gave David and me at our recent, fantastic garden
know-how experience (definitely recommended) we are now set to start rewilding part of our garden. David is making a small pond at the bottom of the garden, has plans to make a bug hotel, and has ordered a crab apple tree from a local nursery. I think it will be a marathon rather than a sprint but we are definitely on our way. What contribution am I making you might ask – well I’m reading up, supervising, and encouraging- all very important contributions” Nikki, Hampton

“I had a wonderful afternoon – it was informative, friendly, informal, and relaxed. I loved it and went home inspired to find some more logs” Christine, Reigate

Garden know-how experience – Garden Structure
