Jill Coleby & Vanessa Faulkner


Coleby & Faulkner’s story began when two talented garden designers – Jill Coleby and Vanessa Faulkner – decided to join forces instead of competing against each other.
Proving the old adage ‘two heads are better than one’ to be correct, the pair have never looked back, building a business which has gone from strength to strength.
Both Jill and Vanessa graduated with distinction in garden design, they also have years of practical experience in planting and developing gardens.

About Jill

Her background in art and strong sense of style gave her clear ideas about how to help people make the most of their outdoor space.

Jill balances her appreciation of natural beauty with her practical knowledge to create gardens which are as functional as they are visually stunning
