From our clients

We would like to thank Penny Kay Garden Design for creating a new planting scheme for our front garden. It has grown from a completely bare site after the extension work was completed to one which has matured over the last few years into a welcoming space. We would highly recommend Penny.

Donna & Patrick, Oxford

Penny Kay designed, planned and delivered our garden project within the budget and timescales we agreed. We’re delighted with our beautiful planting which Penny continues to monitor as the garden evolves over the seasons.

Kevin & Sue, North Oxford

Penny worked with us to redesign our garden to incorporate a natural pond as a feature. This replaced an overgrown and unattractive flower bed. She did an excellent job and we were able to adapt our plans as the project developed. Penny provided us with detailed planting plans. She understood our vision for a natural looking garden and we are enjoying watching the garden develop. We would recommend her highly.
