what our clients say...

"Liz is exceptionally talented and has an “eye” for both the decorative aspects but also practicalities. She listens carefully to clients and offers them choices. She is an incredibly reliable communicator, responds quickly to concerns, answers emails and calls promptly and has developed excellent relations with a number of high quality contractors. Talent, added to professionalism of the highest quality has made the design, delivery and installation of my new Manchester roof terrace a near flawless operation. "
Mr Dowd, Manchester

"Liz has done an amazing job of changing an outside [roof terrace] space which was an eyesore into a joy to behold after a long day at the office. The design masters the unique blend of modern contemporary design with the natural feel of plants to provide an outdoor living space which is both functional, easy to maintain and beautifully co-ordinated.  Good in daylight, it is stunning at night with the background lighting."
Ms Watson, Birmingham

"Thanks to Liz we now have a beautiful apartment terrace that truly enhances our view over the City of Manchester. Right from the start of the project Liz's attention to detail was remarkable. The computer enhanced images she created enabled us to vision the design. She managed the specification and tendering process on our behalf and project managed every aspect of the garden creation.

If you want a stunning garden design, delivered on time and based on a passion for nature and having everything right I would totally recommend Poppyhead Consultancy; they are different, but that is what makes the result so special."
Mr and Mrs Simpson, Manchester

“Liz combines a considerable intellect and a passion for plants and the landscape. Her attention to detail is second to none. Liz has the ability and experience to take on any scale of project from a master plan for a large public realm project to a small courtyard or roof terrace for a domestic customer. Her plant knowledge is extensive and up to date. I enjoyed the process of working with her on producing what I feel is a new and compelling offering to the domestic landscaping market. I am confident that Poppyhead Consultancy will go from strength to strength and that any clients who work with Liz will benefit greatly from her input into their project. Liz understands and works with the fact that clients are emotionally attached to their outside space. You can trust Liz to deliver something special.”
Noel Murphy, Head of Landscapes, Places for People

"The design made the best use of the different levels and space in our garden, and put everything just where it needs to be. Everything just... works. The planting plan provided the perfect finish to the design, giving us year round colour.   Our garden beforehand was an eyesore best avoided, but after Liz's design it's a pleasure to be in and use."
Mr & Mrs Gilbert, Manchester

"Liz was extremely knowledgeable and great to work with. We will use Liz again in the future and would gladly recommend her company and service."
Paul Barrow, Director of Paragon Construction, Paragon Homes and Aboda Living

"Liz was an absolute pleasure to work with.  Her passion and creative thinking in relation to garden spaces is inspiring and exciting to be around.  We would love to work with her again in the future." 
Sadie Pickering, Yard On The Edge, Alderley Edge, Cheshire

"Liz is a true inspiration. The creativity and passion bursting out of her work and her devotion to her clients knows no end.  Poppyhead Consultancy is certainly a business that is going not only thrive but inspire. I for one will be following Liz's exciting journey and feel honoured to know such an amazing woman".
Andrea Morgan, Passion For Homes

"Liz recently delivered a workshop here at Chorlton Nursery, inspiring local growers with her knowledge and enthusiasm for garden design. She was a joy to collaborate with and we look forward to working with her again in the future."
Nimira, Owner, Chorlton Nursery 

"After a few years of mixed success with trying to grow veggies and fruits on our roof terrace, I booked a gardening lesson with Liz for my husband's birthday.  We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves as well as learning a lot. Liz was very structured in her approach and provided lots of advice and ideas as well as leaving us with plenty of information and access to online resources. Our terrace garden is blossoming nicely now and we have started to eat our own produce".
Mrs Stemp, Didsbury
