the studio

With a high level of attention to detail, Yvette uses a combination of sustainable materials and planting schemes that reflect your own needs and preferences to deliver designs that are both enjoyable and easy to use.

All plans and drawings are produced by hand using accurate scaling.  This ensures that each design is unique and filled with personality.

Based in Bingham, Nottinghamshire, Yvette’s Design Solutions is ideally placed to undertake projects throughout the UK and abroad for private, commercial and municipal clients.
