A small friendly, professional garden design service in South London and Surrey, specialising in private gardens. My service includes the production of design layout plans and drawings based on client consultation and garden survey, hard landscape construction monitoring, plant supply and advice for ongoing maintenance. No space is too small: from creating an attractive social balcony with plants and furniture, invigorating an existing garden with innovative and sustainable features, to designing a completely new garden. For new home owners I can provide a garden audit consultation that identifies all the established plants, tree and shrubs and give advice on maintenance.

MCE Garden Design worked-up the design to my brief and budget. Sourced and supervised the hard landscaping contractor and will supply the plants and advise on planting.
Excellent service at all stages of the project. Clear and concise explanation of what will happen and when. Re-landscaped garden is exactly as I envisaged and looks great- can’t wait for the planting to be completed.
Very professional and friendly service that I have no hesitation in recommending.

We have been really impressed with Marie-Claire throughout our whole garden design process
We moved into our new house early in 2020. I’d always dreamt of having a beautiful garden and becoming a gardener but I had know idea where to even begin. Someone had recommended Marie-Claire to us so I thought I’d contact her to see (fully expecting having our garden designed by someone to be way out of our budget - amazingly it wasn’t!)
She was very friendly from the beginning and also open about what she could do within our budget.
The brief started as a redesign but unfortunately had to be changed early on thanks to COVID and needing to be more careful with our money.
Marie-Claire was very flexible and accommodating to the change in brief and even came up with the fantastic idea of doing a an ‘interim’ garden, where she used the garden as it was and just pulled together a planting plan which worked with what we had to make it look the best it could without spending lots of money
She went through lots of different plant options with me and spent time to try and understand exactly what I wanted/ liked
She sourced all the plants for us and even gave me some really good gardening tips along the way, which I really appreciated. Best of all her planting plan came with a full maintenance plan so I know what to do each month for each plant
The garden looked beautiful all through late spring, summer, Autumn and even early winter.
I cannot wait to finish the process off with Marie-Claire, the plans are all ready...now I’ve just got to be patient!
I would highly recommend MCE Garden Design to anyone who is even thinking of having something done to their garden. Maire-Claire has been a pleasure to work with and is a very talented lady! More...
