Many thanks for your guidance, inspiration, knowledge and amazing organisation skills.  In no more than three weeks our garden has had a wonderful touch of TLC!  Looking forward to bloom in spring and to more projects together in the future. 

The garden is shedding a coat and putting on a new one, love it.

I'm looking at the pot and it is beyond stunning.  I just absolutely love it....It is just so beautiful, so thank you so much.

I am absolutely delighted with the beautiful garden Tara has worked so hard to create. Her knowledge of plants, shrubs and trees has been invaluable. She followed my brief, but it is her vision and talent for design that has made the end result amazing

One thing Paul and I meant to say yesterday is how much pleasure the new beds give us. Every time we walk into the garden room we admire the planting whether day or night  but it looks particularly pretty first thing in the morning with the eastern sun and in the evening with the sun from the west. The garden room now really feels as it should - a room in the garden.

Many thanks to Tara and her team for rejuvenating our tired and overgrown sundial garden! Tara’s vision and sensitivity in helping us choose which plants to emphasise and which to lose has created a beautiful display that now brings us endless pleasure where before it was a jumble of promise that never quite got there.  We are very grateful to her for getting the job done so quickly never taking a break even when the weather turned extremely challenging. Thank you Tara.  Jacqueline, Justin and family x

We are both so thrilled with the new border designed by Tara, which is already looking spectacular in its first year.  The long border was originally planted with very unhealthy looking rhododendrons that had been overtaken by weeds.  It is now a flourishing wonder with points of interest and colour throughout the year.  Much of the garden had already been landscaped by an award-winning garden designer, so this was a challenging project to take on.  I love how Tara has managed to blend the border into the existing planting scheme whilst also adding her own style and character.  I would highly recommend Tara Dalton Garden Design for her creative eye, horticultural knowledge and attention to detail.

We are so delighted with our new raised bed in the back garden. It has looked wonderful all summer and really compliments the rest of our garden. Tara's advice at planning stage was brilliant and she has managed to include all the plants I wanted. The planting was done very well and the addition of a watering system has meant it all survived the heatwave.

Tara turned a dark tiny space into a bright open courtyard garden with clever use of easigrass in place of real grass which would not grow, smart decking and raised beds.  The garden was 'dressed' to show it off for an autumn marketing push and the house sold very quickly.  Having upgraded the house to a modern, warm aesthetic it was essential that the outside space matched and was in keeping with the clean, crisp but warm interiors.  She expertly achieved this delicate balance between uncluttered contemporary but warm and welcoming which helped set the house apart in the market.  She gave us various options of plantsand help us choose between them, planted the plants and installed a watering system. We were abroad and could not be very involved in any of the process, and Tara took on every aspect of it from liaising with the tenant to choosing to planting the plants, making it such an easy and pleasant experience for us and our tenant. Our tenant told us that she had left the house immaculate (she and her workers had to go through the house to access the backyard). I have no doubt that the beautiful, low maintenance garden she created helped helped to secure a quick sale in a very challenging market.  We were delighted with the process and the outcome and would recommend her wholeheartedly.
