from a London client:
Jessica Higham designed, and project managed the construction of our garden when we had the opportunity to enlarge it.
She listened to all our "wants" took into account our foibles and came up with a stunning design which went beyond our expectations. She managed to design a low maintenance garden to be used for adult entertainment and childrens play including imaginative lighting and storage that looks fantastic all year round, maximizes the space available, screens us from the neighbours, camoflages newbuild walls, avoids the colour yellow and includes a fruit tree for jam making!.
Her designs were imaginative and her advice sound - steering us away from impractical terracing and really understanding that we meant it went we said we wanted low maintenance. 2 years down the line we still love it and haven't changed a thing!
She sourced the builders and managed the construction project and ensured that the project came in well within our budget and on time. Access to the garden had to be entirely through the house and she co-ordinated the work so that it caused a minimum of disruption and no mess at all inside the house. My husband says that it was the least stressful construction project he has ever been involved in (high praise indeed from him).
We would definitely use her again and cannot recommend her highly enough.
from the owner of a country estate:
"We are both delighted with the detailed and inspiring plans by Jessica, of Higham Garden Design for the rejuvenation of our existing flower beds. We are very excited about the future of our previously tired looking garden.
In every area of of the garden, it seems, we now have something new to enjoy and to enthuse about. We take great pleasure in witnessing the new and different plants, observing their changes throughout the seasons, and seeing Jessica's plans come to fruition.
We were immensely grateful for Jessica's imagination, wisdom, expertise and encyclopaedic knowledge as she advised us on our plant choices, positioning etc.
Thanks to Higham Garden design our garden now will be a tranquil place of great joy and beauty for future generations.
