I have been using Emma for a numbers of years and cannot recommend her highly enough. Her most recent work is fantastic and our garden looks amazing, especially when you consider that two months ago it was a bomb site after 9 months of work on the house. She works with you and understands your needs; we all have opinions and she is happy to allow your fiobles but then makes sure that the end product is going to work!
Emma, aka The London Gardener, designed the layout of my new garden, and chose and planted all of the plants (including turf, trees, shrubs and herbs).
Emma was fantastic. I wasn’t clear what I was looking for other than a hand full of high level thoughts (low maintenance, pretty, variation in height of plants). She took away my thoughts and got back to me quickly with a design and planting suggestions. I adored the design and within the wide range of planting suggestions that Emma shared with me, I was able to pick out gorgeous things to plant on my garden.
My builders did the timber and brickwork and Emma met with them before kick-off to discuss the design and then she met up with them during the build as needed (twice, from memory).
Emma and team then did all the planting. My garden looks fabulous and I am thrilled with it.
Emma has a huge passion for gardens and their contents, and her passion shines through. She is very thorough, works to a high standard and genuinely wants her customers to be delighted with the end result. Emma’s knowledge of plants is clearly vast. This meant that I have plants suitable for a London garden and also that she knows when and where to source quality products from. The turf in my garden is so beautifully green – everyone has commented on it.
Emma designed and planted my garden (small patio area) about 6 years ago. I was delighted at the time and have so enjoyed seeing the shrubs and trees mature over the years. I very much enjoyed working with Emma and so recently I asked her back to see if she could help me work out what would work best on my roof terrace. Needless to say she came up with some wonderful ideas. In addition she offered a very professional service, very prompt time keeping, within the agreed budget, all in all an excellent service.
Emma did a fantastic job with our garden, and was extremely helpful throughout the whole process from design to build. She took our brief and did a cost effective design and plant scheme that looks brilliant! We debated about doing it ourselves but glad we went with Emma as the garden is now one of the best features of the house.
Emma and her firm The London Gardener came highly recommended. We needed a replant of a significant amount of our garden and to install an irrigation system.
I could not be more impressed. Ideas from Emma were great, but she was flexible to accommodating our wishes without a hint of being didactic. Emma and her team were on time, on budget, courteous and incredibly hard working to deliver exactly what had been agreed. Even better, the garden looks fantastic! Highly recommended.
We were delighted to have come across the London Gardner Ltd
Emma has been incredibly generous with her knowledge and very generous with her time. Emma gave us her full attention and we are delighted with our garden which has transformed our home into something even more special.
We were consulted every step of the way and Emma went beyond what was expected. The level of quality, honesty, service and attentions to detail we can not fault.
We would highly recommend Emma. She is a natural at making outdoor spaces really fit into ones lifestyle.
Extremely professional and competent company, which implemented a soft landscaping project for our family home driveway and back garden in a timely and efficient manner.
I was especially impressed with the manager’s hands on approach during the entire project period, as well as her attention to detail, and ability to always be ready to give us advice on garden maintenance both during and even after the project was completed.
I would highly recommend The London Gardener Ltd. to other people.
I first hired Emma (The London Gardener) four years ago to assist me with designing my newly refurbished garden. I was starting with a blank canvas, but having lived in Southern California, I wanted to create something that was unusual for London, but reminiscent of the many beautiful gardens I had seen in Beverly Hills. Emma was not only receptive to my vision, but she knew exactly the types of plants and trees that would create such a garden. Emma’s extensive research and design skills were second to none. She helped me achieve my vision beyond my wildest dreams (quite a challenging feat with a North facing London garden.) In the years since the garden was first planted, Emma has punctually visited my garden bi-annually, maintaining it as it has developed within its parameters. Emma and her team are always punctual, and incredibly knowledgeable. Many visitors to my garden have not only complemented it on its beauty, but have asked to try and recreate a similar garden in their own homes. Emma and The London Gardener team will always be my first recommendation. She is the best gardener in all of London.
After the builders had left, our garden looked a bit like a landfill site. Emma and her team managed to convert it within a few days into a wonderful place of recreation. Very good advice on which plants to use, flexible in respect to our ideas, always considering what works in practice and is easy to maintain, excellent supply of plants (Emma has indeed figured out her sources). Also very good in communication, always accessible and responsive. I can fully recommend this gardener, a pleasure to work with.
I have used Emma and her team at The London Gardener for a while now, firstly for transforming my London terrace and balconies into beautiful spaces, and now again for a complete redesign of the garden in my new home.
She has a rare blend of professionalism coupled with creativity and passion for plants. During the design process Emma meticulously thinks about the project and its aims. She is most knowledgeable and ever mindful of the beauty of plants and how to best use them to their greatest advantage within the given space, whilst cleverly fulfilling the necessary purpose. I found that she worked closely with me and took great care to explain and talk through the project and its various stages. The London Gardener team is carefully organised and directed by Emma: her professionalism and that of the entire team is second to none. Throughout, I found everyone to be thoroughly reliable, tidy and clean and the quality of work is always of the highest standard and thought through to the very last detail. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Emma and her team at The London Gardener.
I have come across Emma through a colleague of mine who was singing praises about her work. I have to say I was a bit apprehensive as I had a bad experience before but I soon realised I have nothing to be scarred of. She is such a pleasure to work with, she is timely, realisable and sticks to the budget. She spends a lot of time making sure she understands your needs and affinities and then just does the most amazing job translating it into reality. She has given me the garden I love spending time in and that I feel very proud of. And once the work is done, she is around to help with many questions I have had, always ready to help and offer the advice to someone with not such green fingers! Absolutely delighted with her work and would highly recommend her.
Emma and her team did an excellent job. Very accomodating and pleasant to deal with from initial meeting to checking all ok post completion of the job. Job done on time and bang on budget; and carried out tidily and in a totally stress free manner.
The London Gardener, under Emma’s direction is a real find in the sea of gardening services. A great pleasure to work with: timely, reliable, professional and most of all uniquely skilled in translating client’s wishes into a better version of what was initially set out in a brief. Emma and her team will transform your garden into a beautiful space with skill and imagination. Being a BALI registered gardener means Emma will source the plants in the best of nurseries, they will be healthy and original and they will last a lifetime. I am recommending The London Gardener for the badge of perfection! Thank you for our garden, we love it.
