Janette King, Founder, Cornus Garden Design

Cornus Garden Design was set up in 2010 to provide customised garden design and build services to clients in Kent, Surrey and Sussex. However projects have taken us as far afield as Devon, Berkshire and Essex and there is an exciting garden in Switzerland waiting in the wings.

All Cornus gardens are based on an in-depth understanding of our individual clients, what they like and dislike about their garden, how they plan to use it now and going forward and how much time they have to spend on it.

Sometimes the project involves starting from scratch with a piece of open ground, it may be that plants and trees have outgrown their spaces and the balance has been lost, or occasionally clients just know that something isn’t right and want a professional with a fresh eye to give advice.

Our work ranges from simply delivering a planting plan to a full scale garden redesign with walls, paving and new borders. We appreciate that some owners have a considerable depth of knowledge and may simply want their ideas confirmed while others may be new to gardening and would prefer to hand the entire scheme over and take possession of a finished garden.

No garden is the same and each one receives our full attention until our clients are completely happy. After the handover, we are always available on the telephone or to come to the garden to identify a mystery plant, resolve queries, advise on maintenance and provide moral support.
