Our Partners and Associate Members
Emmie and Grzegorz create gardens that are in tune with Nature, using sustainable environmentally friendly materials and functional design. They offer garden maintenance/makeovers and year round tidy ups; mowing, weeding, pruning trees, pond design/ maintenance, hedge and shrub cutting.
They create beautiful naturalistic feeling gardens that attract people, wildlife and grow healthy food. They can also create more ordered gardens with defined areas, and ornamental edible plant beds, it all depends what you're looking for in your garden. They mainly use Perennials in our designs as they are low maintenance and come back year after year.

Mike Long Garden Design
With a love for creativity, nature and being outdoors, I have run my own landscape construction business in Suffolk and Essex since 2010. Over the past 10 years I have designed and built many gardens of various styles and budgets and have been recognised nationally for my creative designs and space solutions. I am passionate about seeing a space transformed from tired and worn to sleek and contemporary, meeting the needs of a 21st-century lifestyle.
My passion to create has now led me into designing garden spaces full time. Designing a garden ushers in change and the development of a space, which in turn enhances the lives of the people who use it. Being outdoors is proven to be vital for wellbeing, and I personally find it to be the most crucial element to ensuring good mental and physical health. Through carefully considered and inspired design, my aim is to get people enjoying their outdoor spaces so that we can once again become more connected to the holistic beauty that nature has on offer for us all.
