Ah I see. I’m based in Devon. Don’t give up on having a design for your garden. There are many Garden Designers in the South East. The one for you is out there somewhere. All the best. Jacquie.

I totally agree with User, above. Not sure why I didn’t see this article at the time! The trend for hard surfaces in ‘garden design’ to suit ‘clients’ needs’ is, in my opinion, entirely unethical unless it considers and respects the life already present in the garden (much of it invisible and invaluable), and encourages biodiversity, which we are losing at a frightening pace. Loss of green gardens, front and back, is contributing to the fragmentation of habitat and micro habitats (which most people are unaware of).

I am no angel. Only relatively recently have I learned the folly of what I did to my own garden. But at least I have learned. And I weep.
