Good Housekeeping August 2022
Becky made the process of designing my garden a very enjoyable experience and I am constantly delighted with the result. There is something lovely to look at throughout the year. As well as being brilliant at her job, Becky is a lovely person to work with. She really listened to what I wanted and was very good at talking me through her design ideas and presented me with beautiful planting plans and mood boards with ideas to choose from.
Becky very quickly understood what I was trying to achieve, but really added value by suggesting design options that I had not considered myself. Her design reflected and built on my particular planting likes and dislikes. Becky did more than I could have anticipated to create the garden I wanted, which enhances and blends with the setting of my house. She is very flexible and easy to work with. She provided support and advice throughout the landscaping and planting process and has stayed in touch with me whilst I enjoy seeing my new garden come to life.
Nearly two years later the garden is well established, and the planting is thriving. I am really pleased with the garden from my initial discussions with Becky to how it looks now.
It was certainly worth the money spent and gives me and my visitors much pleasure now and will continue to do so for many years to come – a real investment.
I have no hesitation in recommending Becky Ketley, not only for her garden design and knowledge, but for also being such a lovely person to work with.

Like most people we has a few rough ideas about what we wanted for our new garden but we knew that they were nothing special. After talking to a few landscapers who just agreed with what we suggested we decided to get someone to design a garden for us. We found Becky through the college that trained her and it was one of the best decisions that we have made for our house and garden. From the first meeting that we had with Becky it was obvious that we had picked someone to design our garden who really had our best interests at heart. By asking us a series of questions Becky was able to get us thinking about what we might like in a new garden, at the next meeting where we used a mood board to explore our ideas further it was really pleasing to see that Becky had really listed to even our smallest thought and incorporated them into the initial design of the garden. The final design was just amazing something we would never have thought of doing. We also asked Becky to pass her ideas onto the landscaper and supervise the start of the work it was extra money well spent. Becky also helped arrange the plants from a local nursery which was a real bonus. The finished garden was just like the plan, when we got the landscaper to take some pictures from above using a drone we could not believe how well the plan had been translated to our garden and it was just incredible to see Becky’s imagination come to life. Watching the garden mature over the last few months has also revealed the depth of thought that went into the original design. We would thoroughly recommend using Becky to bring your garden dreams to life. We’d love to move house just so we could go through the whole experience again! One final comment, out neighbours who called in to see our new garden just stood there saying “Wow, it’s just like a garden off the TV”. Thank you Becky”
Thank you so much for the plan and all the hard work. It's been a joy and I can't wait to get going!
