Garden Design in Hertfordshire

Judy Shardlow is the lead designer at Heartwood Garden Design, based near St Albans in Hertfordshire. A skilled gardener, Judy has over 20 years of gardening experience and a long career in design. She is a graduate of the prestigious London College of Garden Design, graduating with distinction and Capel Manor School of Garden Design. Working with customers to develop a vision for their garden is her speciality, using concept boards, 3-D visualisations and sketches which all work to feed into a detailed plan of how the garden will be built. Working with a designer gives you access to imaginative use of space, new hard landscaping materials and expertise in plant and tree selection. All of these skills are needed to create an exceptional garden that you will enjoy for years.

She works throughout Hertfordshire and in parts of London, specifically in the Hertfordshire area she completed the following projects:

Harpenden relaxation garden with stunning yellow quartz paddlestone walls
Harpenden family garden with sweeping gravel paths, sunny and shady borders, a swing seat and fun children's play area
