In 2011 North London Garden Designers, Jo Fenton and Anne Roberts formed a creative partnership.
Dividing the Design Process between Hard Landscaping and Planting they are able to make the most of their individual strengths in the delivery of unique and inspirational designs. Working closely with each client, they employ imaginative use of space and original planting schemes, to unlock the potential of each garden.
Jo Fenton BA Hons.
Following 15 years practical experience as a professional gardener in North London, Jo trained at Capel Manor Horticultural College. Here she gained qualifications in Garden Design, Horticulture and Hard Landscaping as well as winning the Student of the Year Award for Garden Design.
“What I most enjoy, is playing with shapes and space, to create original gardens which excite my clients.
I am inspired by gardens where strong design is teamed with an element of wildness in the planting.”
Anne Roberts BEd Art.
Trained at Capel Manor where she studied Horticulture and Garden Design. Anne also creates beautiful sculptures from wire and metal.
“Its all about the plants for me. I am inspired by the Dutch School of Garden Design and love experimenting with plant combinations.
In design I enjoy the challenge of problem solving and approach each design with an open mind."
In the Spring and Summer of this year, my garden erupted into life.....the change in appearance can only be described as simply stunning. It has exceeded my expectations and I am over the moon with the result. Jo and Anne have a great eye for detail and really know how to produce a beautiful garden - it feels very mature already.

Fenton Roberts designed two terraced areas of our apartment, with structural features (decking, planters and a screen), trees and plants, and irrigation.
Their designs and ideas were first rate, their execution and attention to detail were excellent, as was their ongoing maintenance.
We've had many compliments on the terraces, and I would not hesitate to recommend them.

Knowing nothing about gardening or what I really wanted, I found Jo Fenton attentive and sympathetic to my lack of ideas. She was skilful in drawing out what sort of things I like and admire and how these might be adapted to a London garden that is significantly shaded by a huge copper beech. Jo translated these ideas into a design for a woodland garden that was easy to imagine from the computer drawings. I felt that Jo was innovative about design and knowledgeable about planting. I was delighted by the end result and Jo, together with her partner, Anne Roberts kept me informed at every stage of the work, which was delivered on time and within budget.

After stepping through a rotten decking board and deciding that my entire garden needed revamping, the best thing that happened to me was chancing upon Anne and Jo at Fenton Roberts Garden Design. Unfailingly practical, creative, flexible, helpful and patient on both the plant and hard landscaping fronts, this wonderful duo have helped me create the most beautiful new London garden, all the while operating within a clear time framework and to budget. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks Anne and Jo. I can't recommend you highly enough.
