Gill Vaughan is an experienced, trained garden designer based in Newbury, Berkshire. She established her practice in 2002 and has since worked on hundreds of commissions, both private and commercial.


Projects have varied in size from small courtyards to over several acres. Most are in rural or semi-rural settings across Berkshire and surrounding counties. They include family gardens, gardens for keen gardeners and low maintenance gardens.


Landscaping plans to meet local authority planning conditions can also be provided.


Gill was awarded an RHS Silver gilt medal for a show garden in June 2002. She keeps up to date with her profession via the Society of Garden Designers. Her work has been featured in The Garden Design Journal and she has appeared several times on BBC Radio Berkshire.


Educated to degree level, Gill approaches all garden design commissions with professionalism and enthusiasm. She provides a friendly, reliable service, explaining everything clearly throughout, and aims to exceed her clients expectations.

Coronavirus - safe working


My garden design services are carried out in line with Government and Public Health England guidelines as follows :-


Initial consultations - I  do this in your garden with you, whilst distancing. I then email you a written summary of the main points and can send examples of plans, sketches etc to show how I work.


Surveys - on site, following the distancing guidelines


Layout and planting plans - produced in my office as normal


Meetings to discuss outline and detail plans - either outside or in a well ventilated room whilst distancing, or if preferred by video call as we both look at the plans


Plant sourcing, supply and planting - as normal, distancing on site
