Considered Design for Beautiful Gardens

Garden design by Frances Kandel


Plantlife Garden Design offers stylish and contemporary garden design to clients in the Cheshire/South Manchester area. 


Whether a full redesign of a large garden, a planting plan for a courtyard garden or back yard, or one off advice for a problem area, we will take your brief and present you with the perfect solution for your space.  We can assist in providing you with a modern, happy space to live your alfresco life in.


Working with a select group of landscapers and suppliers, we can create a garden that's perfect for your needs. Low maintenance planting can still provide year round interest and a striking display - but is perfect for those without extra time for gardening.  Clever design can transform an area into a multi functional space where both the children can play and the grown ups can relax in a peaceful haven after a hectic day.


Frances Kandel grew up in the North Yorkshire Moors, where her love of natural beauty and knowledge of plants and gardening was developed from an early age. From planting seeds and watching them grow with her mother, a life long passion was discovered. 


Now herself a mother of two living in Altrincham, she continues to be inspired by all things green.  Her passion along with expertise gained from training with the prestigious RHS ensures you will receive a professional garden design service.
