“We have spent the last few years restoring our house. The best bit? The garden that Caroline designed. It is utterly beautiful, in total harmony with the house, our style and our lives. Caroline has a complete grasp of her craft. She loves what she does, but she also has the serious knowledge and experience that enables her to excel. Her architectural background gives her a unique grasp of space and hard landscaping, while her passion for plants ensures her planting schemes are exquisite. Caroline came recommended to us, and we have recommended her to others in turn. We loved working with her – she really listened to what we wanted, and had so much to offer in return. We can’t wait to work with her again.”

Director Salts Mill, Saltaire, W Yorkshire

Yorkshire Garden testimonial

Caroline Benedict Smith Garden Design Cheshire - Testimonials - Yorkshire countryside Garden “Caroline is incredibly professional, a real pleasure to be around, knowledgeable, and her work is to a very high standard. She made what was quite a big project seem simple, easy and helped me redefine my ‘field’ into a truly usable and inspiring family garden. Caroline has a unique skillset mixing her Architectural career with her love for plants and the outdoors. Once I had defined the brief for what we wanted out of the garden, Caroline drew up a first concept that immediately helped me visualise what our garden could look like. I am not green fingered but was eager to learn, and Caroline made my garden, although large, very manageable for me. Caroline also ensured that my garden transformed throughout the seasons. I couldn’t recommend her enough, and if I had another project would definitely ask her to help me out again.”

West Kirby Garden Wirral testimonial

Caroline Benedict Smith Garden Design Cheshire - Testimonials - West Kirby Garden “I don’t like gardening, but I love a beautiful space. When it came to sorting my garden 8 years ago, Caroline was strongly recommended by someone who knew her work. Caroline talked with me about my likes and wishes. With the eye of a trained architect, which she is, and an impeccable emotional intelligence, she produced a wonderful design for my garden. Her knowledge of plants is both extensive and practical, (she gained top marks in her horticultural degree). Caroline personally chose old stones for steps, and walls and patio, from salvage yards. My trips to those yards with her have a special place in my heart. We had such a laugh.
The workforce Caroline employed, and oversaw, did a fantastic job on the hard landscaping and planting. She took full responsibility for all the little decisions. All this talent and hard work, on her part, has produced a garden that is a delight to me. People travel to see this beautiful maturing garden. On my recommendation, friends have employed Caroline to transform their garden space with equally perfect results. Anyone can call themselves a garden architect, but Caroline really encapsulates all one would want in this area.”
Leonora Fahy, West Kirby
