About Us


Kathryn Hibberd is a fully qualified Garden Designer, professionally trained with the English Gardening School at the Chelsea Physic Garden, London.

Kathryn's love of gardening began at about the age of 3 when she used to 'help' her grandfather in his garden and allotment.

She started 12 Garden Design in 2005 working with clients in Buckinghamshire. Kathryn has designed successful gardens for the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show and has also worked as a consultant for Crown Paints on their Trends Panel which looks at how colour can be used in contemporary home and garden settings.

Kathryn's sensitvity for design, knowledge of horticulture and love of plants will transform your garden.

When it comes to choosing a contractor to construct the garden Kathryn works closely with a number of local, independent, BALI registered landscapers. She has worked with these landscapers on many previous projects and they have a proven track record of delivering a high quality finish as the design becomes a reality.

Connections with specialist nurseries allow Kathryn to source trees, shrubs and plants for your garden at very competitve prices - always hand selecting all specimens before delivery.

More recently we have introduced a garden lighting service. Lighting is always considered during total garden redesigns or can be a stand alone service for existing gardens. We are 'Part P' registered with Elecsa which enables us to design, install and certify electrical installations in garden locations.
