Planting Works

Planting Works Garden and Landscape Design was created to marry a passion for plants and design into exciting outdoor spaces.

The founder of the business, Victoria Clarke, has lived in Poole since 2008. She has been working in the garden design business since 2012 and is a qualified RHS landscape gardener.

Prior to focusing on garden design Victoria worked at the management consultancy firm Accenture in London. The time working for this business developed her customer facing skills and passion to deliver, which is evident in everything that Planting Works now stands for.


“I am very pleased with Planting Works and their gardening services. The garden is well thought out, easy to maintain and tasteful. I am delighted that Victoria managed to incorporate several of our favourite plants in  the design and it has transformed the space. I would have no reservation in recommending Victoria to any prospective customers”

“We asked Planting Works to overhaul the borders in our front and back gardens with a view to recommending a more suitable planting scheme for the conditions. We were looking for our garden to have some cohesion of design and also to be low maintenance. She quickly came up with a detailed proposal exactly matching our requirements but using a variety of shrubs and perennials we would not have considered ourselves. We are absolutely delighted with the end result and can see how it will improve further as it matures.”

“We commissioned Planting Works in April having just finished a landscaping project. She had been recommended by friends. Victoria came to our home and viewed the garden. We have a series of large beds which needed planting up. She was professional and offered her own ideas but also listened to our ideas and needs. We do not consider ourselves as gardeners and wanted low maintenance planting which would look attractive throughout the year. Victoria’s design gave us exactly what we wanted. We have had lots of lovely comments on the garden and would recommend her to any of our friends.”
