“Last year we decided to completely renovate the jungles that were our front and back gardens. We knew that we did not have the landscaping skills to do so. Luckily we found Florus and Carolyn and Sue certainly did. During an initial consultation they came up with imaginative building and planting ideas. These were then set out in a series of beautifully-drawn options. We contracted them immediately. Very soon we had a well-designed and planted front garden. The back garden was much more complex and extensive- new patios, walls, fences, paths and raised beds. Jake and his team who were contracted for the built work were fantastic, immaculate in their work, and a pleasure to have here. Carolyn and Sue were always on hand to supervise and then to undertake the imaginative and multi-dimensional planting. It was a joy to have them all create our garden. This was at the end of 2017 and we are now eagerly awaiting the spring to see their planting come to life. We have no hesitation in recommending this brilliant company. We are always ready to open our gardens for inspection to potential clients of Florus.”Dr Stephanie Schwandner-Sievers and Professor Garry Marvin
“We would like to thank you for creating such a wonderful garden for us. You managed to take our jumbled wish list, add your own creative touches and transform them into a practical and beautiful outside space, that both we and our dog enjoy. The attention to detail throughout the process was very much appreciated and your assistance in project managing the plan from paper to soil we could not have done without.”Mr and Mrs Jones, Wimborne
“Thankyou both for creating such a lovely garden for us. We were most impressed with your designs which took into account our thoughts and ideas whilst at the same time being mindful of what would and would not be suitable for the plot. Thankyou also for your patience and attention to detail. The garden is a pleasurable place to be once again, with a varied range of plants giving all year round interest, we are looking forward to spending many leisurely hours enjoying the newly created seating areas with book and glass of wine in hand!!!”Mr and Mrs Woodhouse, Witchampton
“Thank you for designing and creating the wow garden of our dreams, we enjoyed every minute of the process, and found your attention to detail and enthusiasm inspirational.”Mr and Mrs Pitt, Ashley Heath
“Having just moved in to a newly built home, we contacted Florus for help in selecting plants and designing the garden borders and beds. Sue and Carolyn appraised the site, listened to our likes and dislikes, and offered a number of options for us to consider. By explaining and illustrating our potential plant choices we were able to agree a plan and to develop a programme for planting. By visiting and researching local nurseries, Florus sourced the best plants and either arranged for their delivery, or picked them up themselves. The result was that we had all the thrills of garden design, without the hassle of locating everything we needed. The system worked brilliantly and after a few busy days planting we managed to transform our garden.Nigel and Jennie, Dorset
Sue and Carolyn are very approachable and working with them was good fun. They showed a deep love of plants and garden design, listened carefully to our needs, and sensitively addressed any concerns we had. Importantly they used their knowledge and experience to advise us on plant aftercare and how to get the best from our project in the years ahead.
One year on and we are delighted with the results. We would have no hesitation in recommending this company.”
