Susan Birchall is a registered member of the Society of Garden Designers with 25 years of experience. Susan has had hundreds of her designs constructed and planted in the Dorset and Somerset area. She started her own Garden Centre and plants nursery in 2012. She has won National Awards for her design work both at the National Garden Show in Shepton Mallet and with the British Association of Landscaping Industries. Susan’s approach to creating gardens for your outdoor living space is very practical and functional and at the same time embraces new ideas and new concepts. Susan’s natural creativity and ability to solve problems has stood the test of time.
Harmonising modern and classical architecture within the overall landscape has often been a problem that she has faced and has had to overcome. Practiced at liaising with other designers, landscapers, architects and planning officials, Susan can help you to realise your garden aspirations.
Having worked in her own garden centre and nursery for over seven years Susan has acquired a vast and extensive knowledge of plants, trees, shrubs, herbaceous, roses and climbers. She has grown her own plants from seed and cuttings and has a deep understanding of horticulture. She has a natural empathy for the countryside, wildlife and insect habitats. Susan knows instinctively the plants that will work well to encourage insects and bird life into the garden and believes that a garden is your own personal, private space. Outdoor, indoor, inside, out, the transition from the house to the garden should be comfortable and relaxing. The two should combine really well.
As well as practical solutions to outdoor living space there might also be some room for artistic licence, garden dynamics , the WOW factor, the use of structure and ‘art de jardin’. Just one small something, be it contemporary or innovative, will give your garden a special touch of magic, a splash of style...
