Elaine Portch

Artist, Designer, Gardener




As a novice gardener I had no idea how to start planting the good sized garden behind our new house. While visiting open gardens for ideas we visited Elaine’s garden, liked what we saw and asked her over for an initial consultation. We agreed she would provide a planting scheme and plant information sheets for each plant, based on my rough ideas and preferences in plant types. She quickly provided a first draft and after input from us a comprehensive plan, lovely artist impression and detailed information sheets per plant. One year on the garden starts to fill up nicely and gives us everyday joy.  I would not hesitate to use Elaine’s service again as we really appreciated her approach and artistic eye to create an interesting garden.
