Helen Shaw is an experienced garden designer working in the Thames Valley and Chilterns area, covering the counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire. She offers a personal service and likes to work closely with her clients, enabling them to realize the full potential of their garden through discussion and careful planning.
"My aim is not only to create aesthetically pleasing gardens within a realistic budget, but also outdoor spaces that fulfil functional needs in todays busy world, whether this be for relaxation, entertainment, recreation or conservation. Plants form an integral part of the gardens that I design, but good structure, simplicity of form, use of appropriate materials and attention to detail are also key elements in my work."
"My designs also take into account the architecture of the house and its surroundings so that your garden harmonizes and becomes integrated into its setting, providing a unique sense of place. This is achieved irrespective of whether your property is traditional or contemporary in style, and located in the town or country."
"I am particularly committed to preserving the environment and, where possible, endeavour to design gardens with the view of improving habitat, conserving resources and using sustainable materials".
