Walk on the wild side

I love Autumn but yesterday I could quite happily have skipped the whole month. So to remind myself that Autumn can be beautiful I looked at the photos I’d taken during a walk on Sunday when my walking boots were a bit muddy but my coat was dry!  Hope you enjoy them too.

Enjoy my walk on the wild side of gardening


Autumn colours

When designing a garden for a client I love to add some seasonal interest for autumn and winter. If I can’t make a garden look good in the summer I wouldn’t be doing my job, but giving a client interest in the Autumn, especially in a small garden can be quite a challenge. For me it’s all about form, texture and colour.  Leaves are beautiful  and a vase full of foliage can create an amazing centre piece.

And textures


Add interest to a garden


who could resist a walk on a day like this

 If you have an interior or garden and landscaping project or a design, build and renovation project which you need help with or ideas for then please give me a ring: Alison 01572 747318 or 07973843020.

I work on interior design and garden design projects in Stamford and Rutland as well as further afield. I will design a garden to complement the architecture of your home and choose the right landscaping materials to complement it. If you are frustrated with endless searching for the right fabric or wallpaper and paint colours and overwhelmed with the enormous choice, then allow me to make a handpicked selection for you. I will complement the style of your existing rooms and provide a few choice pieces which will bring the whole look together.
