Welcome to Rosie Nottage Garden Design.
My name is Rosie Nottage, and I am a Garden Designer.
My work is in Bath, London and the home counties. I work with architects, home owners and property developers to create gardens and landscapes which create a seamless transition from interior to exterior, add value to property and create spaces which are a joy to live in. My role is to make sure budgets are spent wisely for people to get the best possible return on their investment.
I have a Plant Science degree, a Diploma in Garden Design and am currently taking RHS level three exams so I understand which plants will thrive. I ran my own garden build company for four years so I also understand the intricacies of a build project and my experience of looking after gardens means I create spaces which are easy to maintain.
So what do you get from working with me?
I have a hands on, practical approach. In our first meeting I will listen carefully to what you would like to achieve and then will do a detailed site survey. I will consider how often you use the space and how, colours that will work, storage, drainage, children, entertaining and how to make your garden the best room in the house. I will then work in the studio using powerful CAD software to plan the perfect design for the space, which I will then illustrate by hand. I will return with a suggested design, sketches of how it will look, construction drawings for contractors to work with, planting plans showing final spreads of the planting and specifications ready to be costed.
If you like I can then oversee the project, helping translate the drawings into the finished build and solving problems that come up along the way. I can also supply plants and furniture for you and do guided trade nursery buying trips.
So why use a garden designer?
Having a professional design means the finished garden looks and feels well thought out. I understand which plants will work in the scale, and which hard landscaping elements will make the garden flow seamlessly around the house. I keep an eye on costs, making sure the project stays on budget. I understand what maintenance is necessary and will create a garden that looks great and will suit your lifestyle. Last but not least, working with a designer like me is an enjoyable process – I work with clients in partnership from start to finish, and I love sharing the fantastic gardens with them on completion.
