Happy Gardens was born of happy memories. Who we are, where we came from and where we are heading define us. The core of what we are about never changes, but how we do things and our goals shift as we grow and evolve. Where we came from fills our hearts and defines our beliefs, and we feel it is important you know our story.
When I was a little girl I would sneak into my grandma’s garden and get lost there. It was my own secret garden, and an edible one too! I loved it. It wasn’t clean and manicured. It was a little overgrown, with apple trees, huge dill and fragrant onions and garlic. I could spend hours there. It created many happy memories and taught me that a garden could not only be beautiful, but also functional. The function of my grandma’s garden was to provide herbs, vegetables and fruit for my family. But there are many functions to a garden – beauty, structure, food, wildlife habitat, outdoor living space, source of cut flowers and whatever else you would want to make of it.
My dream is to share that happiness with other people. To create wonderful, living spaces for people to enjoy. To bring back memories and to create new ones. That’s what Happy Gardens is about.

We believe that an outdoor space should be not only beautiful, but also sustainable, creative, practical and safe.
We focus on landscaping that promotes biodiversity and creates wildlife habitats. We aim to create outdoor spaces that are an extension of the house.
Our goal is to work closely with the homeowner to deliver the outdoor space they want and need. We listen and then give advice. Our work is a thoughtful expression of the homeowners' wishes, needs, constraints and dreams.
