Freear & Fitch is a boutique garden design firm offering a complete service from garden design, to garden construction and ongoing garden maintenance.
Working with private and commercial clients across Essex and Suffolk we create imaginative and thoughtful gardens that are not simply beautiful but also enriching to those that spend time in them.
Our starting point is always the interpretation of your site – in particular its mood or atmosphere. We trace this in its geography, accompanying architecture, aspect, history, narrative, flora and any other unique features identified.
We work hard to understand how you want to use your outdoor space, practically what you want it to provide you with and emotionally how you want it to make you feel.
Many clients start with good ideas as to what they want, some want elements of drama and excitement whilst others simply want pared back relaxed spaces for quiet contemplation; this is what we will discover with you.
Our extensive plant knowledge, derived from years of growing and experimenting with plants and obsessively visiting gardens, ensures that plants are used creatively and appropriately to the site conditions.
We believe gardens are an important part of our environment and can greatly enhance the biodiversity of an area and work hard to specify plants that contribute to the natural environment.
