Mending broken hearts

Ann-Marie designed and built the BHF Chelsea Garden for our 50th anniversary year 2011. She was a joy to work with and turned the ideas for a ‘mending broken hearts garden’ into a fantastic reality. … Princess Beatrice’s jaw dropped when she saw the garden on her visit on the Monday night.

A pleasure to work with

Ann-Marie is great fun and a pleasure to work with. She makes you want to spend all your time in your garden as she makes it so easy. I love the way she uses colour and planting and very quickly the garden matures.

Two gardens, one designer

Ann-Marie has designed two gardens for us and both times she just ‘got’ what we wanted straight away. The designs were completely different … but very appropriate for the style of house, surroundings and our life style.

Ann-Marie’s creative vision has transformed the spa garden to create a relaxing haven for our members and guests (which) perfectly blends the contemporary design with the historic gardens in which the hotel sits.

Book review for “Plans for Small Gardens”

Ann-Marie Powell’s “Plans for Small Gardens” is a bit of a godsend. … For 10 different garden types you get a detailed plan, a double-page construction brief, and a shopping list that goes all the way down to the number, size and type of screw you’ll be needing to do it all yourself.

A gem of a book

Here it is in one neat little volume – Plans for Small Gardens – a book that tells me that less is sometimes more and that a garden can be “limited to only a few elements but still be strikingly effective”.

RHS show garden praise

The British Heart Foundation garden by Ann-Marie Powell … refused to play by the rules and didn’t pander to expectations. I was drawn in to a thoughtfully planted space.

Dan Pearson – The Observer

RHS gold-medal winner

Ann-Marie Powell’s garden for British Heart Foundation is stunning. Lush, bold and original.
