My wife Ellen and I love our garden, and although we know how to generally keep it tidy, such as mowing the lawns and weeding ect, we have always struggled to know what type of plants and shrubs suit various situations (particularly on our poor sandy soil) and also how and when to prune them back. So when a good friend suggested help from their gardener Michelle back in 2008, we arranged to meet her and talk through our requirements. We were impressed with her qualifications, knowledge and passion for all round gardening so we engaged her for regular work, starting with designing, planting out and maintaining what is now a fantastic deep border of trees, shrubs and ground covering flowering plants. It looked really good from the start but now it looks amazing with lots of beautiful colour in all seasons, we are absolutely thrilled with it and with our own workload lightened; we now sit in the garden on summer evenings and enjoy it! She has vastly improved every aspect of our garden and she is such a delightful and cheerful person to have around, it is a real pleasure having her work for us. We look forward to her visits and highly recommend Michelle and Leafy Garden Design.
