The transformative and restorative effect of gardens and the healing, therapeutic power of mind, body and spirit when immersed in a garden is at the core essence of each design @ Outdoor Designs Landscape Design. Each design aims to deliver fresh, practical, soulful gardens packed with personality. Creating spaces and places that improve your wellbeing and lifestyle.

Your brief is the first and most important step in beginning the journey together. Finding that ephemeral Sense Of Place - connecting you to your space and place in a soulful way is the essential aim that Alison strives for. Indoor – Outdoor Connection is also a speciality of Outdoor Designs allowing you to enjoy your garden all year-round. Timeless picture painterly views of a seasonally changing garden are celebrated.
