"When we moved into our Victorian farmhouse, there was no garden to speak of, just an unkempt lawn, a few sorry looking flowerbeds and a scraggly hedge. Jemima’s enthusiasm to transform such a blank canvas was infectious. She was influential in changing our architect’s plans for the house, ensuring not only that we had convenient access to the garden, but that we had rooms and windows giving onto the garden too. This has informed our living space, bringing in more light and space and with an outlook that makes all the difference.
We were beyond impressed not only by her imaginative ideas, but by the level of detail of Jemima’s work. Her beautiful hand-drawn plans are a work of art in themselves! Jemima helped us to source all of the plants she recommended and spent several days with us putting everything in place against her detailed planting plan. She is delightful company, extremely knowledgeable and very hard working.
The garden attracts no end of compliments from friends and visitors and we get so much pleasure from it on a daily basis. We are particularly grateful for Jemima’s expertise in planning a garden that gives year-round interest. Investing in our garden has totally transformed the look and feel of our house and we are absolutely delighted with the result. We wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Jemima to anyone thinking of designing a garden from scratch or even just wanting some inspiration - and indeed several of our friends have since invited her to help them with their gardens! She is worth every penny."
" Thank you so much for our beautiful garden - it is greatly admired by all. We now have the garden we have always wanted thanks to all your hard work and guidance."
" Jemima's design for our cottage garden perfectly solves the problem of several awkward spaces. The planting scheme continues to give us year round interest. We would readily recommend Jemima's comprehensive design service. "
"When Jemima agreed to take on our garden as a project we were thrilled. Many people thought we had made a big mistake buying a lovely house with a dreadful garden which was no more than an overgrown building site when we first saw it. It seemed to have little potential for any garden, let alone a beautiful one. Jemima had so much vision and has created a garden with all the criteria we wanted. Through the whole process she always remained professional, whether with the workmen, planners or ourselves, and was flexible enough to alter the design if any problems arose during the construction phase. She spent time to get to know what we really wanted and what would suit us as a family, and created not only a beautiful plan, but what will be in a few years time, a wonderful garden. Although our project was a small garden, she always made us feel it was her top priority. Her knowledge of plants and trees, soft and hard landscaping, is impressive and her vision and confidence in what she does makes her a pleasure to work with."
"Jemima created a beautiful family garden for my previous home. She took into account all of my concerns, my wishes and my strict colour stipulations. The end result was a garden that I loved, that worked extremely well, and that was very much admired. I am now using Jemima to design my garden at my new house."
" Jemima Currie was asked to come up with a scheme to improve the terrace of a Chelsea flat; the terrace hadn't been touched in decades and was mundane. The scheme Jemima came up with and implemented has transformed the terrace and the general feel of the flat, and is now the envy of the neighbours. The increase in value to the flat greatly exceeded the cost of implementation and made the flat much more saleable. "
