Elemental Designs
6 Reviews
Elemental Designs was set up by Rachel Merrick and has successfully designed and built over 75 gardens over the last 12 years. If you know what you want then we can help deliver your vision, or we can develop ideas based on your requirements. At the end of the day we listen to what you wish to achieve and give you what you want rather than what we think you would like.

We have worked on all types of gardens and have completed a wide range of projects from 70 acre private estates to small urban gardens. Styles have varied from traditional to contemporary designs. The key is to deliver a garden that works for you and select plants that are suited to the local soil conditions and also your maintenance requirements.

With a strong interest in sustainability, we have also undertaken design and installation of a small rain garden, living walls, green roofs and both wildflower seed and wildflower turf projects.
Elemental Designs undertakes work from South London, Kent, Sussex and Surrey. Other areas considered please contact us to discuss further.
