Thanks so much for all this info. I spent hours last night looking at all the plants in the plan and I was blown away. There was nothing that I didn't like and I was pinching myself!

Hello Nicki

I hope this finds you well and looking forward to the Spring weather we have recently glimpsed.

Thank you so much re the advice and installation of the wildflower turf in my garden. As you know, I had a short but very wide steep 45 degree slope in one section of my garden which was proving consistently difficult to

manage- brambles, weeds you name it. As a pensioner I have found it increasingly difficult to manage that area. However, I found out that you installed wildflower turf which needed cutting back just once a year and.... well, now I have the turf laid. That is one section of the garden that I will never have to bother about again as I plan on having you come cut it back each year for me. A weight off my mind.

I just want to say that your man absolutely meticulously and thoroughly prepared the ground the week prior to installation and he went over it all with a fine tooth comb. It took him a whole day as there were years of roots in that area, which is why I couldn't cope with it. This house dates back to around 1840 and I think those roots must have been there most of that time.....???

On the day of installation, your Chris made final preparation, getting rid of anything that may have surfaced. He has done a fantastic job Nicki and I'm not joking when I say that he laid the wildflower turf as carefully as if it were a piece of needlework. It is immaculate, and I wish you were here to see it.

In a village like this, nothing goes unnoticed. I went to a film evening in the village hall last week and was told I was having turf laid.!

Someone else said 'yes, wildflower turf'. Can't get away with anything here!! Several people have asked to come see it when it is in bloom....

Personally I can't wait.

Plus, I'm looking forward to encouraging all the insects, bees etc.. to my garden.

Anyway Nicki, the wildflower turf looks just great so far. For me, little steps, little steps. I'm gradually, and as funds allow, working around my garden and it's going to be beautiful.

Thanks again Nicki for being so helpful. Your Chris is an absolute asset to your team and he has done a fabulous job. I have never ever, in my 30 years here, seen the soil in that area of my garden look so pristine!

Things change and I may yet have more wildflower turf elsewhere -but shall wait and see what this area produces.

Thanks again Nicki for your help and support. I confess I was over the moon when you confirmed that wildflower turf would be suitable for that awkward area. I can't wait for it to grow. By the way, I'm looking after it and making sure it doesn't dry out.

Looking forward to working with you and your team again.

We had a garden that was tired, lots of grass, with shrubs round the borders, and lots of bits that needed changing. It got to the point, we didn’t want to spend any time in the garden, all we did was weed, mow and prune and then we would go inside. We wanted to update it and make it work for us and we looked for a whole new design. As a major investment we wanted someone who would understand and listen to us. We had seen Nicki’s blog in the Your Call magazine and contacted her. She was professional from the start.  She explained the process and the pricing from the start. She has been amazing, spending time with us, listening and coming up with a plan that met all our desires and budget. She oversaw the process and supported us to go at our own pace, in stages that suited us.

Nicki took great care with the planting design, thinking of texture, colour, planting and garden use and in the planting plan, some of the plants are familiar and are old friends, some are new and are exciting as the garden grows and we will learn their pace and style. The garden now meets all of our needs, it has become a place to relax in after work, we spend time in the garden at the weekend, when it is raining we can sit in the kitchen and watch the plants, the insects have come back quickly and we now spend more time in the garden. Our interest in gardening has revived and it has been a therapeutic change that will continue to be a stress reliever and a hobby for many years to come. We can’t wait to see how the plants grow and the garden matures and will be contacting Nicki for advice and after support in the future.

Thank you Nicki, we would highly recommend your services.

We asked Nicki  Jackson to come and re-design our dated garden following a recommendation. The garden now is an absolute delight to view and will be even better once the planting has matured. Nicki took on board our likes and dislikes and designed a garden that more than suits our needs. The process was executed in a professional manner and communication was good throughout.  

It was a pleasure to deal with Nicki. My wife and I are very pleased with the end result and thank Nicki and her team for a first class service.

Blue Daisy Garden Design have a very professional approach to their clients and their work. Even though I arranged design planning as a gift for a family member, they understood and were very happy to help me, delivering an excellent service from the start. Thank you.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you and Nicki and all the team at Blue Daisy for an excellent job, I hope my parents enjoyed and take the consultation meeting to the next step.

Testimonial - Debbie I

I found Blue Daisy Garden design on line as I have no gardening experience but really wanted a minimalist, contemporary garden with a bit of wow factor!  From the moment Nicki made her first visit we knew we were in capable hands.  Nicki's passion for gardening along with her concern for our wants and needs made the whole experience of having a new landscaped garden design fun, painless and extremely rewarding.  I am delighted with my new garden - it is absolutely beautiful - so thank you Nicki for your wonderful design - I will enjoy it for many years to come.  Highly recommended.

It has been a pleasure working with Nicki Jackson of Blue Daisy and we're very pleased with the end result.  When we moved in to our new home the garden was very neglected, dark and gloomy and so we contacted 3 different garden designers for some ideas.  We selected Blue Daisy to do our design because Nicki was so enthusiastic and could see great potential in our garden.  She looked at it as a "blank canvas" and discussed with us our likes and dislikes and what we would like to see in our finished design.  She produced good preliminary drawings for discussion and then gave us the final plan.  We feel Nicki got the best out of our site, both with the design and the planting and we now have a nice bright garden that we are very happy with.  In the whole process Nicki worked very professionally.

During a difficult family time with elderly parents it was comforting to know that we could leave their beautiful garden in the capable and trustworthy hands of Nicki and her team. Thanks alot Nicki, we really appreciate the care and attention given.

Testimonial - Carol and Steve T

Whilst my husband and I had an amateur interest in gardening; when we moved to our new house with an overgrown, very “child un-friendly”, 90 foot garden, we quickly realised that we needed some professional help to create a space that would work for the whole family.  Originally, we were just looking for some advice on where to start, but upon spending an hour with Nicki, we had committed to commissioning a  full garden design as we felt comfortable that Nicki would work well with us.

We had a big wish list and an even longer list of likes and dislikes yet Nicki somehow managed to accommodate these and came up with a concept that we could never have dreamt up by ourselves.  She arranged quotes for us and met with the Landscaper regularly throughout the build to ensure that all was progressing as planned.  Whilst we have only completed Phase 1 of the build and will complete the patio next year, the garden already looks amazing and everyone comments about how great it looks.  Having a lovely garden is like having an extra room and we have used it more in the last couple of months than we have in the last couple of years.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Nicki or her gardening team and we will be using their services for many years to come.

I came from Japan to take Nicki Jackson's basic garden design course.  Before I attended the class I was a little worried about language barrier or my lack of knowledge but Nicki was kind and patient.

She made me feel more confident and we went through all the basic ideas for garden designing.

She provided well-balanced lessons both inside the classroom and outside visiting a park and gardens to see examples of what I learned.

Nicki is an enthusiastic garden designer who enjoys teaching others and who has love of nature.

I would like to come back soon to take another lesson from Nicki.

Blue Daisy discussed our requirements and made suggestions and also spent time explaining all about the wildflower turf and how it would be installed. We ordered 145m2 and it was delivered, the ground prepared and laid in one day - June 27th 2014. Really looking forward to it flowering.

Highly recommended.

Testimonial - Esther

We’ve used Blue Daisy services for many years and it’s been a great way to give us that extra bit of support we need to keep our garden looking lovely. We’ve had a regular fortnightly gardeners to help with maintenance jobs, and then one-off projects such as a new tree supplied and planted, and some borders renovated and re-stocked. They’ve also been able to help with supplying and digging in soil improver and spring bulbs as we’ve been adding to the borders. The team are always friendly and helpful, and Nicki’s always been on hand to help with our gardening questions! Great service would definitely recommend.

I would like to congratulate Nicki and her team for all their hard work recently undertaken in our front garden.  They cleared the area, removed weeds, added new topsoil, planted shrubs, perennials and dressed the border with bark.  They worked professionally, and with skill and attention to detail, transforming our garden from a lawned area to a beautifully landscaped, colour co-ordinated delight, filled with perennials and shrubs for low maintenance.  It looks glorious, even neighbours have commented on how beautiful it is looking now plants are flowering following the very cold/wet spring.

Nicki is a pleasure to deal with, very knowledgeable and sincere and I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends and family for any garden projects they may be considering.  She is currently helping with some projects in the back garden too, and I am sure they will transform the space and help make my dreams come true.  I shall be keeping in touch with Nicki as together we hope to develop the gardens’ further in the future.  Nicki at Blue Daisy is a real find, she’s an absolute gem who is passionate about plants.

Having never used the services of a gardener before I was not quite sure to know what to expect. I have to say that Blue Daisy made me feel at ease straight away and have been very flexible around my requests. The garden is now really beginning to take shape and I am really pleased with the work that has been done. Nicki is always on hand to answer any of my queries and to make helpful suggestions.

I asked Nicki to create a design concept for my garden, her approach was professional,with a good understanding of the task in hand. The final product was a professional presented concept plan to consider and use. Thank you for doing the concept for me.

Testimonial - Julie H

As a complete novice with gardening Nicki really put us at our ease and made the whole process extremely enjoyable and exciting - not a word I have used in the same sentence as gardening before! The plan Nicki developed after prior discussion ensured all our likes and dislikes were taken into account was amazing, and very creative. Nicki really made my daughter feel involved a developed a concept the whole family could enjoy.

As we requested a plan only we are just about to start the work. We were made to feel we could involve Nicki in as much or as little as we liked. We are undertaking the labour ourselves and then will be requesting Nicki's service again with planting!

Thanks for a great service - I would certainly recommend Nicki.

Thank you and your team for all of the work that you have done in the garden over the last 2 years or so.

Blue Daisy have provided an excellent service for the time that I have been with them and I would have no problem in recommending their services to anyone. The team used are reliable and efficient and my garden has never looked so good.

Testimonial - Darrell C

Nicki not only designed our garden but also found us a selection of contractors to carry out the work. The space was small and very difficult to plan but her attention to detail and expert knowledge meant that the design was practical with a touch of flair and the end result was superb. The contractors she recommended were professional and efficient. I cannot fault Nicki's effort, enthusiasm, knowledge or creativity and would not hesitate to recommend her services.

Between work and hayfever, my garden had always been a bit of a jungle!  I asked Blue Daisy to take a look at it for me, and now my neighbours are full of compliments.  I have to tell them it isn’t my hard work, but at least I don’t feel as though I’m letting down the street anymore!  I’d thoroughly recommend Nicki and her team.

Testimonial - Sharon B

I have used Blue Daisy services for several years, including designing some of my garden, implementing the plans and working on the garden generally.

As I have recently arranged for my house to be rented out, Blue Daisy worked with me to get the garden into a state of easy maintenance and now visit the garden regularly to maintain the design and the plants on my behalf. This is a really helpful arrangement as it reduces the risk of the garden getting spoilt or not being maintained by the tenants.

Thank you Blue Daisy for your help and support.
