Earthworks Garden Design

I have been designing and creating gardens since 2003.

By hearing your requirements and wishes I will design for you a garden which suits your taste and lifestyle, beautifully surrounds your home, is technically excellent, and sits restfully within your surroundings.

I can arrange for your garden design to be constructed by trusted and established craftsmen, and will personally ensure the work is of the highest quality. I will then plant your garden and carefully finish off the details.

My studio is in Leeds and I will happily visit you to discuss your needs, whether you are in Leeds, Harrogate, York, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Halifax, Skipton and beyond.

What Our Customers Say

  • Now we are both retired we finally have time to enjoy our garden and Cheri has proved invaluable with that. She used what was already there and added extra plants, water features and hard landscaping that we would never have thought of to make it a really wonderful place to be. At every step from the initial talk to the final design she listened to us, both for what we liked and how we wanted to use the garden, especially how we hoped to attract wildlife to it while still wanting a garden to be in and enjoy. We have never received so many compliments from friends for anything we have done, and now enjoy spending much more time in the garden, both relaxing and doing a little light gardening. It’s almost as if we have added an extra room to our house and one which is a joy to be in in good weather and a lovely addition to look at from inside when the weather is not so kind! Thank you so much, Cheri.

  • Working with Cheri on my garden was a fantastic experience, and a real collaboration. She listened carefully to all my thoughts and ideas – even the ones that seemed a bit crazy for a small city garden. She the developed a brilliant design that showed she’d really understood what I had in mind, and it was amazing to see this design take shape in the garden itself. The build was quite hard going, due to terrible weather, but everyone worked really hard, and the end result was well worth it. I have the “urban jungle” garden that I dreamed of, full of colour and vitality. It is a daily source of joy in my life.”

  • We are so delighted with our garden. We have beautiful views from the windows and it is a pleasure for all days, whatever the weather or season, inside or out. Cheri has a wonderful eye and brings everything together in a way that only a talented professional can.We now actually use our garden loads more, enjoy being in the garden so much more, and genuinely enjoy simply living in our home more. I thoroughly recommend Cheri. From really listening to what we wanted, to providing a gorgeous design, to project managing the landscaping and planting, up to the finished garden. Brilliant!

  • Cheri worked carefully and imaginatively with us over a period of months, showing us how to plan and plant a shady, wet and lovely garden suitable for wildlife. She prepared meticulous design plans and consulted with us at all stages. She has a fantastic eye for detail, a fine knowledge of plants and took infinite trouble over both design and planting. Our garden is now four years old and continues to develop, surprise and delight.
