We are based out of Essex. Whether it’s a small townhouse courtyard for the city worker, a large family garden with children and pets to consider, or a seaside bungalow garden for a retired couple, all types of garden can be enhanced to improve your life at home.

We pay special attention to the details of every project to ensure the complete satisfaction of each client. Our goal is to enhance the exterior of your home or workplace, raise your property value, and beautify your whole garden space.

DESIGN - Consultation and design services - Your requirements are unique, especially when combined with your budget, garden situation and lifestyle needs. A garden design consultation will let you ask questions and for us to help you determine what's important to include. We will listen to your ideas and requests, help shape a garden vision and ensure it fits your lifestyle for the long term. You will receive creative ideas to help refine your vision, a Pinterest mood board, a customised hand drawn design (Master Plan) and perspective illustration on paper, along with a high level planting mood board. This is priced based on the size of the garden and complexity of design requirement.

BUILD - Quality landscaping that lasts - Our hard landscaping will enhance the garden around your property and provide structure. Piecing the different build elements together and connecting your property to the garden takes planning and structural inspiration. We can do the heavy lifting and build the design for you with our expert building and hard landscaping team. To do this, we engage and manage our build services using a sub-contracted network of professional landscapers, builders and tradespeople.

PLANT- Beautiful sustainable planting schemes - Complimentary planting, the art and technique of helping your garden achieve its full potential, is our passion. When stylish planting schemes are added, the ‘wow-factor’ takes your careful garden investment to a whole new level. Our planting schemes aim to provide year round interest and can cover many styles, from contemporary to traditional, tropical to english cottage garden, minimalist to maximalist, and so much more. Living in the UK within our dryer county of Essex, we aim to incorporate a degree of ecologically balanced dry garden schemes to reduce the need for watering. Connecting a property to its landscape by adding planted beauty, form, fragrance, colour, movement and structure is an exciting addition to modern garden life. To do this, we utilise a national network trade growers and wholesale plant providers on our planted projects to get the best quality and can price to any planting budget. We also provide aftercare guidance and support in a way that suits each client and their plant knowledge.

We are a member of the Horticultural Trades Association/ Association of Professional Landscapers; pre-member of the Society of Garden Designers (and Essex cluster leader); and a TrustMark registered business. Our business is covered with Professional Indemnity Insurance and Public Liability Insurance. All our projects involve written proposals, terms and conditions and stage payments.

What our customers are saying

We would like to thanks Zoe and the team for turning our drab and featureless garden into a stylish and beautifully planted space that we love to spend time in.

Sonia Bartley, Essex

At the time we felt a little overwhelmed with all the new plants, but it has been really lovely to stand back and admire all our garden. There is so much tooom at and little pops of colour even in Autumn. And although Paul was reluctant to dig up his garden, even he agrees it looks so much better. Thank you so much for all your hard work and advice.

Anita Gray, Essex

Good professional service from design phase to implementation. Good service including hard landscaping, garden design, planting and aftercare. Any small issues or concerns were resolved efficiently. Hard landscapers very hard working and diligent. Time taken to ensure all the plants and garden meets family needs and all follow up.

Steven Goate, Essex

I would like to say the biggest “thank you” not only for giving my garden a beautiful refresh, but also restoring my love of gardening. There is nothing I like more now than to potter or to sit and just wonder t the magic of it all. Your design skills and work ethic are second to none. Plus you listened to my likes and dislikes and designed a garden which is ready for our changing climate.

Jacquie Dixon, Essex

We are over the moon with both our back and front gardens, everything from our first chats with Zoe felt right. Landscaping sounded very grand to us and with Zoe, and later the team, we knew we had made the right choice. Zoe had inspirational ideas and worked with us and no matter how large or small the project ended up she listened and made us feel comfortable as we worked through the ideas. We cannot fault Hortus Pink at all, so helpful, professional and friendly with such an eye for design. Would totally recommend 100%

Gill Burden, Essx

From the initial design consultation, through to the final touches after completion, Zoe has provided an excellent service: reliable, prompt, efficient, professional, knowledgeable and with a fantastic work ethic. She listened to our ideas and used her experience to create exactly what we wanted - and more. We now have a beautiful space filled with textures, colours, light and shade which we can’t wait to use.
