Garden Maintenance & Design, Ormskirk Lancashire

I'm Clare of Clare's Gardens…


I was lucky enough to spend my childhood in North Yorkshire amidst beautiful countryside. I grew up with a deep respect for the natural world and a sense of people’s responsibility to look after it.


However, I became a teacher initially and only really discovered the pleasure of planning and developing a garden when my husband and I bought our own home (and rather basic garden) in Halsall, near Ormskirk.


Over a period of about ten years I planned and gardened in my own plot, learning to make creative design decisions and broadening my plant knowledge. I gardened organically to increase plant health and avoid damaging chemicals, seeking to provide a haven for the wildlife that gave me so much pleasure.


Once my young family had grown up a little, I decided to re-train so that I could channel my passion for gardens into developing outdoor spaces for others. I took a land-based course at Myerscough College’s Croxteth Hall to learn to be a professional garden designer and proudly became their “Student of the Year” in 2008.


The following year “Clare’s Gardens” was born and I now help many fantastic people achieve their dream gardens, offering them a high level of design skill and plant knowledge, loving what I do.
