Thank you so much for the work you've done on my garden design. The report is fab. You've been a tremendous help & inspiration. ...Looking forward to the pruning day. See you soon & thanks again.
We were very pleased to meet you and enjoyed the day you spent with us. Many thanks for the garden design that you did for us. We are very pleased with the design that you produced and the report that you sent to us, and we look forward to getting started with actually doing the work in the garden in the coming months. We will certainly recommend you to friends and family.

...thank you so much for your garden design. We are both delighted, we didn't realise there was so much potential in such a little space. The choice of planting too is exactly what I was after, very calming and tranquil.
A few weeks ago we had an ‘Open Gardens' afternoon and managed to raise over £200 for our playground....People were very complimentary and I was constantly asked if I could give out your contact details...The birds, especially the wrens, remain a constant delight, and I have been intrigued to watch the interactions between the magpies and the squirrels in the trees.
Miss A Dixon,
...thank you for the garden consultation. It was really helpful. I've already pruned the plum and cherry trees, and the garden looks so much better for it. I'm waiting impatiently for colder weather to get on with digging up perennials and redoing the beds.
Dr S Snowdon,
The plan has arrived and generated a great flurry of excitement...even in the rain! We have had it laminated and we have spent hours wandering around the garden with it. If ever you want to visit, we would love to see you. Thank you once again.
Dr & Mrs Hogg,
Just to say what a great idea your garden for the (One Planet Festival) is. I saw it in the paper and am really looking forward to seeing it for real on Saturday . . I think it's really moving what you have invented.

Thank you for making our garden look so nice.
Mrs E Humphrey,
We sat down together and discussed and laid out a critical path analysis. This involved meeting up and agreeing upon dates and times; it made our job a lot easier having Jennifer's input and organisation skills.
Jennifer gave info re design options, then contractor details, which enabled me to fulfil my role as co-ordinator with the school staff. The schematic design drawings submitted with notes and costings, in 3 formats gave full overview and appropriate details. She consulted on numerous occasions, eg re water feature, general layout, construction methodology-all stages were only progressed after extensive discussion and submission of requested info; she responded well to emailed requests for clarification re design details.
She agreed a start date and time for construction work to begin and was there will all resources necessary. She very clearly identified the areas that we agreed strongly on and pursued those avenues giving frequent feedback on progress. Also positive feedback was always overtly given for any help or support received by me.

Testimonials from training sessions
Thank you so much for your (workshop) on Friday, it was really great. Your energy and enthusiasm alone made the day fizz. I personally was overjoyed that Permaculture is not the mysterious thing I had previously thought - but a 'Yes Of Course' system and I look forward to studying it in much more detail. Your workshop was excellent ...and gave a clear and concise introduction. I am sure that, like me, other delegates will now have the impetus to take it further.

I just want to say what a pleasure it was to meet you last night and to thank you for your presentation. They loved it!
Osteoporosis Society, Lancaster & Morecambe Branch
Jennifer, on behalf of the local Osteoporosis Group, may I thank you for your talk and presentation on Tuesday night. We all enjoyed seeing the photos and learning about the lovely plants.
With best wishes,
Excellent, inspiring session. Good case studies. Good mind map developed with the group...really good to get an understanding of the different challenges (of disability) facing people in relation to design. Well presented.
