A few kind words from some of our clients...


I am thrilled with my new garden!  Lu took my initial concept, liaised and then used their design magic to turn it into something very special.  They discussed the planting with me, accommodating special requests and introducing me to plants that I had not come across before.  They then placed everything with enormous flair and style.  Love it..

We had been wanting to have our garden updated for a number of years. We tried a number of firms and never got even to a design. We met Lu and Greenspace in late 2014. Lu recommended a landscaping team and we worked together with Greenspace and them to get to a design on the landscaping. Lu worked with us on the planting. They teased out what we like and did not like and was patient with our indecision. The work took place in 2015 with Greenspace doing the planting. We were very happy with the result.

Greenspace has continued helping us on maintaining and developing our lovely garden. We are happy to recommend Lu and Greenspace

Greenspace have been great at transforming our overgrown and neglected garden in two phases into a light and airy modern space – Lu brings both excellent horticultural knowledge and a keen eye for structure and composition to the task. We are looking forward to working together again this year to nurture and clip everything into shape as the new plants establish themselves and make us delight in our little urban back garden oasis.

The straightforward task of re-potting my Mediterranean fan palms took on ‘project’ proportions with disappointments in my dealings with horticulturist companies.
That all changed when a friend forwarded my details to Greenspace Garden Design.
Lu’s patience with me in choosing, purchasing new planters to re-potting took approximately 8 weeks; the latter aided by Angela.
Throughout the process the liaison was relaxed and professional.
I would unreservedly recommend Lu irrespective of the task, wishing I had been introduced to Greenspace Garden Design earlier.

LU IS A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH. They are very good at listening to a brief, and take into account likes and dislikes. They are great at guiding without imposing their own ideas and we have been delighted with the results, particularly this summer with beds having had a year of growth. Oh, and they works extremely hard!

Lu has an extensive knowledge of plants which they use to good effect when designing and laying out borders. The results are artistic as well as stylish and offer great visual impact. They use their skills and knowledge of plants to maintain gardens to a high standard. In particular, their understanding of pruning is very well developed. Lu has a professional approach to their employment and maintain high standards in the quality of their work and in their relationships with colleagues and clients.

A job extremely well done!

Lu took us through the daunting task of rebuilding an over-mature 28 year-old shady garden, stripping most of it and re planting, whilst still maintaining some maturity. They liaised well with Rob, the hard landscaper and the Greenspace team (Ali & Henry) worked really hard to create a garden which already looks well established but manageable – just the look we hoped for. They introduced us to some lovely plants which we had never heard of and incorporated some of our favourites which needed replenishing. All done promptly and with care and consideration, under the watchful eye of Mouse the Cat. We highly recommend them – just have to re stock our supply of ginger biscuits & coffee now………!

Lu is a hugely talented garden designer

Who is able to bring their vision to life, producing excellent planting combinations in flowerbeds and tubs, and creating enjoyable vistas in the broader design framework. They can do this because they have an extensive horticultural knowledge base (which plants work together for colour, height, season and longevity), and because they listen to preferences and support them with additional suggestions. Lu has worked with us for 4 years now, helping us to develop and renovate the 5 acre garden of our moated manor house in Leicestershire.

Excellent design and planting of my garden

I was and remain absolutely delighted with the outcome. You took my original idea, which was very rudimentary, and turned it into a space that is constantly admired. It is maturing beautifully and gives me constant pleasure.

I contacted Lu from Greenspace to help me with our newly acquired large pre loved over 30 years but over grown garden. I had contacted another garden designer who wanted to rip up and modernise it beyond recognition.
Lu really ‘got ‘the feel and character of our garden from the first visit which gave us confidence. They listened and guided, worked extremely hard to tame it alongside us, with enthusiasm and was undaunted. I am looking forward to the full results of our labours in the spring/ summer and will be very happy to work with Lu again for the next stage of revitalizing our lovely garden.

5 Star Recommendation – Lu’s skill greatly enhanced my ideas

Hello Lu,

I have been trying to find the right words to write my positive testimonial for ‘Greenspace’.
I hope this piece is helpful.

Best Wishes

I have fulsome praise for Greenspace, who provide a very professional service from the first contact to the delivery and continuing support.
Lu listened to my somewhat rambling thoughts and responded with their ideas that complemented and greatly enhanced my thinking.
The unloved grass area at the front is now a thriving wild flower turf area with features to attract insects and birds.
The rear garden has colour and interest all-year round.
The execution of the plan was so efficient, thanks to the skills, knowledge and hard work of Lu and their team.

We had our garden landscaped by Leicester Landscapes, and Lucy came highly recommended to us by them. When we first met I was impressed with her enthusiasm and plant knowledge.
We talked at some length about the style and the type of plants we wanted. There was no pressure from Lucy to make decisions straight away and in fact she e-mailed us a comprehensive plant list so that we could have an idea what she thought would be good for us.
We were particularly looking for a low maintenance garden as we had both recently retired, and Lucy designed the planting around this. We have been very impressed with the outcome and we are looking forward to Spring as the garden comes alive again.
We would recommend Lucy to anyone especially if you are starting from new as she has a vast amount of knowledge and an insight as to what works well together. We recently asked her back to stake a tree for us and she happily did this for us without any problem.
Lucy has a very pleasant disposition and is very approachable she works closely with clients to achieve the best possible outcome.
