What our customers are saying

We approached Eliza to help us with out with our back garden in Bath. We bought our house four years earlier and the garden was a large unruly, uneven sloping garden of grass and weeds which needed a complete revamp... so it was a blank canvas. From the moment we met Eliza we liked her immediately. We really had no idea how to tackle the uneven nature of the garden, and Eliza really listened to what we did and didn't want, and was brilliant at coming up with solutions for the sloping gradient, as well as creating a low maintenance garden which would be suitable for two children. When we saw her initial designs it was clear she had taken on board everything we had chatted about, and she came up with a design which blew us away. Every step of the way she's been available on the phone, on email, and nothing has been too much trouble for her. Our landscaper said Eliza's plans were the best and most detailed plans he'd ever seen. The garden now looks amazing and we can't believe the transformation which is down to Eliza's skill and vision. We've hugely enjoyed her energy and fun sense of humour and wouldn't hesitate to use her again. Thank you Eliza!

H Griffiths, Bath

I now have the garden of my dreams thanks to Eliza. Before she even looked at it for the first time, she spent a couple of hours talking to me to find out what I liked and what I needed and wanted. Having seen the space and after further discussions she produced her ideas and an outline plan which I immediately liked. There hardly had to be any changes from that to the detailed plans that I used to have the garden landscaped and planted. Everything Eliza did was done with a high level of professionalism and infectious enthusiasm. She made a stressful process pain free and was always available to talk through things with the landscaper and myself. I am delighted with the results and would highly recommend her services.

H Thompson, Somerset

Eliza carried out a thorough and high quality consultation with us, exploring our ideas, wants and wishes for the garden, which was designed from scratch. She explored our preferences in terms of how much time we wanted to spend in the garden and how we wanted to use the space, as well as how much time we wanted to spend on its upkeep and maintenance. She carried out a full evaluation/site survey of the area and came up with creative solutions for the irregular shape and camber of the plot. She was genuinely enthusiastic about the project and her enthusiasm was infectious. She brought creativity and energy to the design and was responsive to all our queries. She has continued to show interest in the project as we have implemented it, in spite of some delays due to Covid and our builder. She communicated extremely well through face-to-face, email, detailed drawings and planting scheme, showing personal commitment to the project throughout. Overall Eliza is an engaging and enthusiastic person to work with, keeping in touch and remaining interested in the project as the garden grows.

B Edwards, Wiltshire

We had a general idea of what we wanted to create and Eliza made suggestions and worked with us in the design of our project. The result was stunning. The large plans she produced ( A1 size, I think) are not only full of measurements and technical data. the software she has meant she could give us a dozen or so visual images of the completed design and in full colour. What also impressed us was the full planting plan where every plant was itemised and plotted together with a planting schedule which will make ordering easy. It has been a real pleasure working with Eliza and we thoroughly recommend her.

G Richards, North Somerset

Eliza did a fantastic job redesigning a complex garden at our cottage to cope with a range of family needs, introducing ideas and concepts that we would never have thought of and yet are used daily. She was readily accessible and did a great job helping to refine a very vague client brief! Prices were very reasonable and the discount she was able to secure on plantings largely covered the costs. I would not hesitate to recommend her services.

R Hampton, North East Somerset

It is now some ten years since Eliza Gray transformed our garden. Every day since then we have been grateful for her skill and continue to be delighted at the way the planting in our garden space has evolved during that time and brings fresh joy in each season of the year. Eliza is a joyous person – a creative artist with wonderful vision for what can be achieved from a very ordinary plot. In addition to her passion, energy and enthusiasm, Eliza takes the time and trouble to ask insightful questions and has an intuitive understanding of the brief while bringing her wisdom and experience to the project. We would whole-heartedly recommend Eliza Gray to you in the quest for your garden transformation. Would that we had more gardens to transform …
