What We Do

We know that a client’s needs are not simply landscape or home specific but rather, and usually, a combination of both. The English Lady Landscape & Home’s designer, Ian, can help you with all of your home, office, or landscape projects with the same attention to detail and eco-consciousness that we give to all of our projects while respecting your budget.

His interior and exterior expertise is also very useful when buying or selling a home or property. You will love what some recommended pruning, edging, cleanup, mulch, and perhaps a new paint color on the front door and trim can do for your property. He will show you how to improve the appearance of your home inside and out to create the best selling experience possible. A consultation from Ian can also help you with lowering your offer price on a property by advising you on things that you might not have seen, know, or thought of.

Ian says “I teach people what I know so we can create the feeling they want for their home or business.” The designs I create, no matter how large or small, have to not only feel and look wonderful but have to make sense and function for long term as well. “It’s not about perfection, it’s about the details.”

The English Lady believes that everyone should be able to improve their landscape, home, or office by phasing in projects. This allows us to create the wonderful results you get while keeping an eye on the costs. You will be amazed at how we can re-energize your space with our creative and useful talents. Just like the amazing transformations we all love to see on HGTV, our designs will renew and revitalize your home, wallet, and soul.

The process is designed to filter all of your wish list items down to a realistic plan and affordable project that can be properly installed by you or a team of contractors you like. We can also manage your projects with our years of experience in this arena. Our mission is to provide creative and unique landscape and home solutions that are both beautiful and functional.

Our passionate and skilled team offers comprehensive design, decorating, and consulting services that are designed to meet and exceed all of your needs and expectations. We pay attention to all the details. Below is a list of some of the services our company provides. If you don’t see it on the list then contact us and just ask. Nothing you ask is silly, and we will address it with a smile.

    Jean, It was lovely being with everyone and we will do it again soon, possibly this fall and certainly when my book is published (the info for that will be on the website). Enjoy the garden. Maureen

    I just want to tell you how much I enjoyed the presentation the other evening at the Wallingfor Public Library. I love working and being in the garden and am looking forward to this season.

    Catherine, hope to see you this afternoon. You can always go to the website as I put up monthly tips and ideas to help in the garden throughout the year. Also in the search box type in for example Hydrangeas and you will find among the articles care of this plant. As you can see we now have a blog and you may also ask me gardening questions on the blog. Regards Maureen

    Good Morning Maureen:
    After years of raising my children myself, I finally have time to start beautifying my yard. I have always kept it manicured to the best of my ability and knowledge, but now it is time to focus on planting, pruning and adding color and shape. A couple of years ago, I began enjoying your spots on Lite 100.5, viewed your website, and found that you offered a yearly subscription at a cost to your web-library of knowledge to view anytime I had a shrub/annual/perenial/etc. question. I did not subscribe as I knew I had no time to work on my garden. I was excited to sign up this year, but I do not see that you offer this anymore? As I live in Enfield, I hope to attend your lecture at the Enfield Public Library on March 24th. The pictures on your website are lovely and I aspire to have a landscape worthy of compliments in the future. I look forward to meeting you. –Catherine

    Huge thanks and kudos, Ian, to your crew who cleared Dad’s driveway after the “big” snow. I was in no condition to shovel more snow after 3 days of my own clearing, and the beautiful job your crew did was so welcome. They were efficient and quick — and it made a huge impact on my Dad as well. He was extremely appreciative of the job they did. 20 inches is a lot of snow, and thanks to your crew, I didn’t have to worry about Dad trying to do the job. Many many thanks!

    I will definitely recommend your services!

    Ian, where do I begin in thanking you for the amazing transformation that happened in my living room. After much angst in just decideing I wanted to add color to the room you were the right person to guide me through this process. I had an idea for color but nothing else. Your ideas and thoughts just kept flowing making it very easy to trust in your abilities. I loved how you used things throughout my house to create a totally different look and feel so I could stay within my budget. My living room is now very intimate and cozy. I simply love it!!

    I can’t say enough good things about your crew. All were extremely neat, polite, and took great care with my property. And what hard workers as they went non stop!! It certainly showed that they took great pride in their work, as they should. I love the team approach so they go in and get the job done in a timely manner.

    I need to add another great thanks for the beautiful work you did on my front steps. The old brick was crumbling and becoming a safety issue as the mortar was all broken and the columns and brick were pulling away from each other. Once again you held my hand and I trusted your suggestions on what type of stone would work as well as match and enhance my property. The results are fantastic and give the house an entirely different look.

    Once again your guys worked diligently, even in the pouring rain, to complete this project. All was done with care and precision. Your guys were even thoughtful enough to stop working and move their cars while the street sweeper went by in front of my house. How’s that for service !!!

    I know our paths will cross again as I hear my landscape calling your name.

    Thanks so much Ian and until next time….

    Robin G. Westerly, RI
