Caroline Benedict Smith Garden Designer Cheshire
6 Reviews
I'm an Garden Designer, Architect and Horticulturalist with over 20 years experience in designing private gardens of all sizes.

My passion from early childhood for gardening has come full circle, taking in on its way an architectural degree, running a 7 strong architectural/interior design practice, a year in South East Asia, and several Royal Horticultural Society qualifications.

I have been designing private gardens in Cheshire, Yorkshire and the North West for over 19 years.

My strength lies in the rare position of having both an architectural and horticultural training, helping me design with ease both the structure and planting.
