Garden Design and Horticultural Therapy

For Health & Well Being 


Our garden designs provide space for rest and relaxation, offer ways to help us reconnect our senses with nature through planting design and landscaping and open up new opportunities for positive personal development and engagement.

Re-gaining control of our emotions and attending to the natural world reduces stress and elevates mood as well as building physical strength in the comfort of our own homes. 


With a background in garden design, occupational therapy and horticultural therapy, Bev McAlpine brings a different perspective to designing and participating in gardens.
